I don't read any book that doesn't engage me right away, or makes me care about the characters. With that said, it was impossible not to become deeply involved with the characters of Maiden, and care about their personal journey. When I read a book, I always picture everything as if it were happening in a film, and Maiden is definitely cinematic in scope. It's perfect for a teenage or tween girl, even up to young adult. I found it instilling a theme of discovering one's on intrinsic value and pe ...more

A daring tale of heroism, adventure, and not doubting yourself and your God given gifts and abilities. An enjoyable read for all ages, but highly recommended for teenage girls, to inspire them to be brave and most importantly to follow their dreams and be themselves. I second what other reviews have said, this book shines without the use of gimmicky language or vulgarity.

A fun and easy read, you will easily be transported into the land of Amarin and see the action for yourself. I can't wait to

Couldn't put it down, but definitely for younger readers. But I still can't wait to find out what happens in the next book! A little different from typical princess books, and the main character is not predictable.

This is definitely a book I would read to my daughter (she's 12, and yes, I still read to her). All of the characters are interesting, and leave you wanting to know the rest of their personal stories. There are also some surprises along the way; the general story line is predictable, but the details are unexpected. That would have to be my favorite element of Maiden, because I'm not often surprised by the storyline. There are minor typos and errors here and there, but not enough to detract from ...more

Pretty good

The idea behind this book is really interesting and different. Unfortunately there were a ton of characters. I lost track of characters as I read and they were not reintroduced so it took a bit of back and forth to figure out who they were. There were also a few spelling errors. I enjoyed reading it despite all of that.

I really love the characters and the story and it's pace keep me engaged. The writing is rough at times, but the author makes up for that with interesting characters and an excellent plot. I look forward to the sequel.

Maiden is a great book. I really enjoyed the way that Chris captivates the reader. I hate that this series is not complete yet because I hate to wait for the others to hit the shelfs. Well done.

Interesting premise

This was a fast read and well written. I will definitely read the other books. The story kept the reader wanting to turn the pages.
