I don't think the author has ever been to writing workshops, but she has OBVIOUSLY honed her craft and/or just has some sure GENIUS to have developed her characters so well, and her plot line, her ability to describe things so it was as if you right were there with Madeline and in a way wish you were her. Not to mention the author's sheer ability to keep us reading to find out what comes next..outstanding!. I sat in the car after work, nature calling and stomach growling in hunger, just to keep reading-- it was that good!
I did get "a bit lost" in the forest, and in the few fantasy elements: so there was a slight difficulty for me at connecting the dots in those couple of chapters, but then again...I do have ADD. Some of the scenes made me worried for her life and well-being and not sure she ever tells anyone what she dealt with there, maybe in the future. There are some intense scenes in the book with a team of bandits, so therefore I would recommend 10 and above as a general rule.
The author was able to pull it all together in the end and left us wanting to know either go back and reread certain parts or to more about the wizards, green-robed dudes.Read more ›
Madeline's adventure is a quick read, with content that is age appropriate. I hope the mysterious epilogue foreshadows future adventures to come for Madeline and her kingdom. Recommended read!
The feelings are so vivid. You experience empathy with the anguish King Theodore feels over losing his beloved wife and his concern having sole responsibility of raising Madeline and her twin brother. You are enthralled as tradition and duty seem to triumph when King Theodore sets out to find a husband for Madeline on her sixteenth birthday.
Madeline for the first time has to think about her future. She begins to develop and test her own values. Confident and trusting her best judgment she makes a decision she will not be hard-pressed by the imposed duty to marry someone she did not know or love. Feelings of betrayal, losing control of her dreams of adventure and freedom, and having her life decided for her was too much for Princess Madeline.
She leaves a ball of suitors, the tournaments of the champion knights, and hastily makes a final decision to escape and leave everything she knows behind.
Adventures on her own ensue as she is captured, experiences a battle of bandits, and feels the pain of choices made. Being free, having independence but having no one to share it with made her feel lonely and unhappy. Her home was not perfect but Madeline knew it was worth being part of. She made the decision to return to her family.
King Theodore, whose patience was one of the foundations of being a respectable and well-liked ruler, was overwhelmed with joy when Madeline returned both alive and well. After a time of reconciliation both understood that nothing would ever be the same.Read more ›
Madeline's world implodes when she makes a rash decision to leave the safety of the castle, her father the king and brother. She is captured not long after, and now the very thing that Madeline is running from, is the only thing that may be able to provide her salvation.
When the king discovers Madeline has fled her responsibilities, he is distraught, and will do anything to get her back, even promise her hand to one of the most creeper suitors in the land Prince Paulsen.
Enter a young knight called Daniel, determined and somewhat smitten with Madeline. Each will stop at nothing to find her.
Meanwhile, Madeline isn't helpless, she formulates a plan of escape, which isn't very successful but it was a very good attempt.
When Prince Paulsen's men catch up with the bandits that have captured Madeline, the young girl is bound and gagged, but she manages to secret away, amidst the fight. Finding, only her gown, Prince Paulsen returns to the king with the dreaded new that Madeline is lost to him forever.
Daniel, however, will not give up. He searches and finds her, and brings her home, but not without a club on the head in the process.Read more ›
