This was actually a great book! My only grouse was that it was just too short, an issue which affected character development and the overall plot of the story. For what it could have been, I would still wholeheartedly recommend this book!
The Warrior's Gift

I enjoyed this book a whole lot. It was romantic but my only problem was I wish it was longer.
This book was incredible!!! I enjoyed every single word!! The characters, Sonya, Will and Sasha, the plot was superb and I was engrossed till the end. It took me back to my high school years and made me wonder about a couple of things. I kinda wish there was an epilogue, but maybe not...it was perfect in every single way!
You need to publish the final book in the Captive series. Please and please. Its amazing!!! I was frantically searching for a way to contact you and tell you this, then I realised I could just leave a comment. Please and please would you be able to publish it on smashwords today? Enough about the please, about the actual book...the love between aria and braith is touching and sweet. In the face of adversity and impossibility they are still trying to find a way. I really want to know how it ends.
I was awkward like Anna and Jake would be my ideal man. I love the Christian theme running through the book. It was incredible, a lovely'ugly duckling' story told with humour and warmth! It was beautiful!
I keep on checking back this page to see if the final of the captive series is out. Captured was great, tender and sweet. Aria and Braith, all their challenges. These are the kind of books I like, there are so few of them, either they are the hardcore 'vampire sex stories' which I dislike, or they are the twilight kind of romances. This is perfect. Funnily enough I am watching the Queen's diamond jubilee and they've just interviewed a young girl called 'Aria' how uncanny!!
This book is awesome!!! It ranks way up there with the Julie Garwood's and Judith Mcnaught's! It was soooo satisfying, the conflict, the love, the fights, the romance...you dwelt on each theme appropriately so there wasn't any sense of it being rushed. The author knows how to write! I have bought about 4 of your books now and I am not disappointed in the least. I would highly recommend!
I have waited at least 6 long months for this book and I am so not disappointed. It was worth the wait. I think Ms Stevens' fans would agree with me on this. The writing style was still as powerful and evocative as ever. The relationship between the two main characters Aria and Braith was so deep and filled with so much longing. I finished this book on the day of purchase (coincidentally the day of release) that's how bad I wanted to read it! Erica Stevens is an amazing writer and it is my pleasure to watch how popular she's become in such a short space of time. The Captive Series especially are without a doubt amongst my favourite books and here's to hoping that soon this author will be competing with the best of them cos yes, she's that good! Lastly, it would be amazing if book 4 could come out as soon as possible *hint* lol (I know its not that easy but in the still lingering Christmas spirit and New Year air!)
