The Captive Maiden Hagenheim #4 free read ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Happily Ever AfterOr Happily Never Gisela's childhood was filled with laughter and visits from nobles such as the duke and his young son But since her father's death each day has been filled with nothing but servitude to her ste. I found this book extremely disappointing I m usually a pretty big fan of fairy tale retellings but between this book and the ones I ve read recently by Alex Flinn I ve been feeling kinda let downFirst of all the book had a pretty slow start Also the writing was very annoying It was almost overly simplistic and it made the main characters sound like children rather than the 17 and 24 year olds they were supposed to be Young adults aren t stupid they ll understand some complex sentences I promise The writing seemed so basic I don t know how to describe it exactly but it was almost like it lacked detail It was as if the author was in such a hurry to get to the next scene that she didn t thoroughly bring out the emotions and details in the present moment Maybe it s just me but I felt like the book might as well have been in bullet form It seemed rushed I really couldn t get into the story and the book was difficult to enjoyAnd just to take a moment to mention the religious references I knew this book was a Christian novel when I started it I was raised in Catholic schools up until college I get the whole religious viewpoint Referencing God praying etc a few times is totally fine However 127 references to God 30 references to prayer 5 to Jesus and 6 to a religious Lord is a bit extreme You d think God would know you needed help the first time you asked without you praying to him every 10 freaking seconds afterward Also the book is all about how God is good and revenge is bad and yet they have comments like then he could gather his father s knights and soldiers and go teach Ruexner a lesson he d never forget It just seems a little hypocritical And that whole revenge issue is practically talked to death throughout the book We got it the first timeThe characters were hard to relate to and sympathize with I simply DID NOT CARE what happened to them I have some examples here When Valten hurts his hand and considers taking off the cast he thinks his mother would cry and he would put up with almost anything not to make her cry Is his mom seriously that much of a wimp that she would cry if he removed the cast Also when view spoiler the stepmother tells Valten that Gisela ran off with another man he s all A girl chose another guy over me again and seething and worried about his image And then all of a sudden everyone is like She s lying We ve just discovered all this evidence that we ve overlooked for the past 9 years Whoo hide spoiler Proud Rancher Precious Bundle usually a pretty big fan of fairy tale retellings but between this book and
