A Duke's Promise by Jamie Carie ~ Review

A Duke's Promise: A Forgotten Castles Novel
Lucie's Review: The conclusion--finally!

More drama and adventure awaits Alex and Gabe, newly married as they continue their search for her parents.

I found this book to be darker in content, and I would issue a PG-13 warning as well, ther were also what I consider to be more fantastical themes (more seeing colors and so on). Not a book that I would let younger teens read.

I loved how this book had so much action in it, balloon transportation, narrow escapes and more! Fast paced, I believe I read this book in less than a day.

It was so great to finally know what had happened to Alexandria's parents, and their backstory. And how because of everything Alex was finally able to have a better relatioship with her parents.

This book's "fantastical themes" were even more pronounced and I'm still not honestly sure what to make of Gabe's seeing colored lights when there are sounds.

Overall, I will say that it was great to finally finish this saga, and find out what was going on. But on the other hand, this book was darker and had PG-13 explicit scenes. Yet there was tons of actions, and I couldn't put this book down. I'm not sure that I can totally pin down my feelings for this book, but I do think that people should at least be warned about some of the elements in this book. And in some ways this book felt a bit steam-punk, so it wasn't exactly what I normally would read. But I found that I enjoyed the adventure, and was hanging onto the edge of my seat :)

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
