Jessica Greyson has done it again. Set in the same fictional world as her earlier book, Annabeth's War, Miss Greyson has once more managed to write a heroine who beautifully showcases feminine strength. This time, however, you might not recognize it immediately, and the story of the Princess Alexandra is a far different one from that of the Belterran sword master's daughter. The way Alexandra grows and changes throughout the book is delightful to see, and Taleon, as one of those demanding her growth, is one of my favorite characters. It is Alexandra who I love most, though, and her struggle to understand the truth behind the lies that surround her will catch your imagination and your heart, and hold them both long after you finish reading. This is the story of a girl every inch a princess, and what happens after rebel forces kidnap her and turn her life upside down makes a book you won't want to miss. Torture and true love, laughter and tears, sword fights and sacrifice: all are woven beautifully together into the unforgettable story of the Captive of Raven Castle.
