My personal Rating- Three Stars (and a half)
“Annabeth’s War” is very clean in the romance content, it was really sweet. Overall, it was pretty clean, but all the pain/killing/blood scenes made my personal rating lower, due to the fact I’m not one for details on that content. ;)
I was a bit confused at the beginning, but I caught on quickly. :)
*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
There are enough surprises to keep the story interesting, but it’s pretty straight forward. The world is small and believable. Much is assumed along with the general medieval time period during or just after the Crusades.
The characters are a joy. The relationships are true and honorable. The heroine and hero are realistic, strong, and surprisingly open to the reader. Supporting characters are reasonably complex, though a few are quite immature.
Even the bad guys are done well. Here’s the blurb:
With King Harold away at war Lord Raburn has his eye on the throne. Those who dare to stand in his way fall beneath his power. All but one. A girl named Annabeth. Can a common, ordinary girl, with love for king, country, and her father, achieve the impossible?
Trained by her father, a master swordsman, outlawed Annabeth has only her sword, her wits, and her disguises to keep Belterra from falling entirely into Lord Raburn’s clutches. Can she rescue her captured father and Prince Alfred? Will one girl keep the kingdom from falling?
Spiritually, it’s not exciting
The main characters seem to have some kind of relationship with God, but it’s not defined. It seems to be a comfortable traditional church relationship with no personal knowledge of the Lord. Jesus is not mentioned, nor the Holy Spirit.
This is a very comfortable book.
Spiritually, it’s three stars, but it’s a blessing to read it. A lush, clean read unencumbered by any pretentiousness. This is cozy, positive entertainment.
