The Forgiven Duke by Jamie Carie ~ Review

The Forgiven Duke: A Forgotten Castles Novel
Lucie's Review: Another cliffhanger of a read.

The saga continues!  As Alexandria follows the trail her missing parents left, with Gabriel on her. Gabe is taken captive by the King's men who are convince that he holds the special information for a weapon of war. What will happen next in this novel of many twists and turns? Will Alexandria escape the clutches of her fiance, John?

Do not pick up this series unless you plan on reading them all! Loads of drama, that really keeps that pages turning. I liked how the book moved at a fast pace, and how the characters were well developed, though there were times that I thought they acted differently than I would have expected.

I really liked how in this second book it focus more on Gabe's spiritual growth and his faith grew so much in this book. I also was so glad that Alex finally realized that in the way she was acting she wasn't fully trusting God as she should, so she really grew too.

I don't really know what to make of how in the book Gabe was able to "see" music as colorful lights. I don't really know much about it or if it could happen or not, but it did strike me as a bit intriguing and strange.

Overall a great follow up to The Guardian Duke, I will note that this is the kind of the series where you kind of have to read them in order and you have to read them all, or I think the experience would be a bit maddening! Though I thought that this book ended much better than the first, which I will honestly say drove me a little crazy ;) A page turner for sure!

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