The Captive Maiden Book Review

Hello everyone!
We hope you all had a great Christmas and are enjoying the holiday season! We have been meaning to post a review on The Captive Maiden for quite some time, but because of all the busyness and hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, we hadn't found the time to do so. Finally, here is the review of the long-awaited The Captive Maiden by Melanie Dickerson.

Gisela has always dreamed of a happily-ever-after fairy tale life for herself, but ever since her Father died, those hopes and dreams have quickly faded away. Now she is forced  to work for her evil step mother, who makes her life miserable. When Gisela meets the duke's son (her childhood lover), Valten, he immediately captures her heart. After she hears of a ball he is hosting, Gisela absentmindedly promises to attend. But because of certain circumstances, Gisela doesn't know if she can sneak past her cunning stepmother and stepsisters.  At the event, Valten is mesmerized by her beauty and he too falls deeply in love. Danger wants to destroy the relationship they had started to build and it threatens to harm them and those they care the most about.

The Captive Maiden, based on the classic Cinderella tale was a bit of a disappointment for us. We had high hopes for this story, but to our displeasure, it was much like the rest of Melanie Dickerson's novels from her fairy tale series. Though it did have a few suspenseful scenes and heartwarming moments, it was a bit dull and typical. We still suggest giving this novel a try just to finish off the series and see how you like it yourself. The Teen Book Blog gives this book a  3/5 stars. Like we noted to before, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't incredible either.
