The troubled people of war-torn Chambria are on the brink of starvation, and a delicate princess with a recurring nightmare is their only hope. Alexandra knows that her value to her country consists mainly in her ability to marry well, but when she is kidnapped by the rebels and taken to meet the man claiming to be both Chambria’s true king and her real father, her entire world falls apart. Will Princess Alexandra be able to untangle the web of lies and discern who is the true king and her father?
Poor sixteen-year-old Alexandra was thrown into a life of uncertainty not knowing whom to believe and who might be her friends or enemies. Her one solace was in taking care of baby Brandon. Fortunately for her Taleon was one who looked after, guided, protected her and helped her find out the truth about her heritage. This book was filled with a lot of details some were on the more graphic side but the romance was mild and of a sweeter nature. Alexandra's character stole my heart and I was hooked from the first page.
I enjoyed this book very much.
The characters came to life and were enjoyable to read about; the heroine grew on me (eventually... Though she still seemed younger than her sixteen years) and I really liked Taleon! Aric was cool, and baby Brandon entirely adorable. I loved the medieval setting in this place called Chambria -- it pulled me right in. Raven Castle came very much alive to me. I quickly realized this was a story focused on character growth which was a nice change from a constantly exciting book. Granted, there was excitement and peril near the end (so don't worry if you like your books more action-y) but I also enjoyed the leisurely time spent getting to know the characters and spent in sweet little moments of touching encounters with people. The dialog especially was great fun to read, and the heroine and Taleon were a fun pair to read about. I like them very much. :)
There were a couple story threads I expected more to happen with but didn't (Arthur, for example...) which was slightly disappointing, but overall it turned out far better than I expected, and I find that I greatly enjoyed it! I'll be looking for more from this author.
Overall, it might have done well to have another edit, but the problems weren't as bad as some self-published books I've read, and mostly made up for it with the characters and story itself. It's a good adventure if you like more of a focus on deep and loveable characters and great dialog, with some scariness near the end to keep you on the edge of your seat. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
Best for Ages: 13 to 25
Even though I knew that none of Greyson’s books could ever come close to AnnaBeth’s War, I have been looking forward to Captive of Raven Castle. From page one I was sucked into the story and I found myself loving this book even more than AnnaBeth’s War. How is that even possible?
Alexandra tugged at my heart, as everything that she has ever known is challenged after she is kidnapped. Everything from who is king, who her father is, who are her friends and who are her enemies. Some people found her frustratingly slow, but I felt sorry for her and her slowness understandable.
Taleon made an awesome hero, almost as awesome as Ransom. His kindness and patience with Alexandra was as touching as the moments he pushed her to face the lies she had always believed. There was a bit of romance, with some hand-holding and dancing, but that is as far as it went.
This story was a bit more violent than AnnaBeth’s War, but nothing was too graphic. This story was different, but so amazing. It was gripping and kept me turning pages. I loved every page, and I will be rereading it in the future.
I highly recommend this book for those who love adventure, princess, and strong female characters.
