Princess Wren feels trapped in her home, not allowed to leave the kingdom, or even fully enjoy being outside. Learning how to use a sword awakens a desire to see more than her immediate surroundings, but her journey creates new troubles. She goes from feeling trapped to being Indebted.
The story pulls you in quickly, and keeps you reading. The characters are creative, and it’s easy to picture how they look and act. The plot moves along at a good pace, one that keeps it from dragging but not too fast to follow. There were a few times that the action seemed to be forced, but that didn’t detract from reading the book.
Although I enjoyed the story, I also like the messages taught through it. At the forefront, trusting God and accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior are prominent. Wren meets people who are bold in their faith. Not an aggressive boldness, but one that keeps them from shying away from sharing their faith with others. Wren, and others, learn about forgiveness and trusting other people. Though it is aimed at youth, adults can enjoy it too, as the messages can apply to them.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through the BookCrash.com book review program. All opinions are my own.
