Review by: Courtney Lundquist on June 10, 2015 :
I absolutely loved this fantasy twist on some classic fictional characters. I am a big Disney fans and also enjoy the TV show Grimm, so this book has a little bit of each aspect, plus some big twists of its own which I really enjoyed. I got hooked on this book and the author's creative writing style that I read it within a day (sort of like how I binge watched Grimm on Netflix..but at least I'm using my braid a bit more by reading, right?). Overall, really enjoyed this and look forward to reading more in the Fairytale Keeper's series.

The Countess' Captive is one of the rare books I've read that had me intrigued from beginning to end. The story is very well written with just the right amount of fantasy, adventure, and suspense that had me glued to it until the very end. All of the characters, my favorite being Adelaide of course, are all unique and very well developed as you go through the story. This was actually my first time reading anything by Andrea Cefalo and I have to say I'm impressed. Really glad I found this.

I love books like this, and truly enjoyed this one. It is compelling and intriguing, with amazing true to life characters. The attention to detailing is outstanding and made me become part of the book. it is very easy to read, and kept me turning pages. I was pulled into it and kept guessing as to what would happen next. I hated to see it end. There are many twists and turns, and the author, Andrea Cefalo, truly captured the raw emotions of anger, betrayal and the desire for revenge. The blending of fairy tales into a new and fresh story is a wonderful idea and very well done. I love her mind and imagination and will be reading more of her books. I recommend this delightful book with high regards. It is enchantment at its best.

I've been reading a lot of fairytale adaptations lately, but this one is by far the best of the best. Not only does the author have a great voice, but she really ads a unique spin on a classic story. I loved this one so much I ended up reading it in just a single sitting. Overall, I highly recommend this awesome read.

Review by: Cailin Koy on June 06, 2015 :
This is the second book in a fantastic series that retells the stories of some classic fairytale characters, with a few real twists.

Cefalo's writing style is rich and evocative, and combines a few different stories that we all know well into a different but delightful tapestry of medieval intrigue. But she does it in a way that's totally original where the characters feel brand new.

Five stars - highly recommended.
