The Captive Maiden

Happily ever after...or happily nevermore?

Title: The Captive Maiden

Age Level: 11+

Stars: 5

Violence: Um, there was some. Broken arm, kicking, jousting.

What I thought About the Book:

Dickerson does a perfect job capturing and retelling Cinderella's fairy tale. I could tell that it was in a Cinderell-ie kind of way--with the step mother and sisters, with the ball, and the prince, etc. But it was very unique in it's own way. Everything was used perfectly, some might disagree. 
One thing I wish I had done was read The Fairest Beauty first. It comes before Valtin and Gisela's story, and kind of gives away the ending. :P But of course that is entirely my fault and not the authors. ;)

I'll have The Fairest Beauty up here in a review soon!! Cross my heart and hope to die. *ahem* I'm hoping Gabe and Sophie don't die... ;)
