Prince Christophe is having a ball...but when isn't he?
After a relatively quiet year of sword play and politics, Kit and Eli have finally settled into a routine of pretending neither means more to the other than a simple offer of friendship can imply.
But friendships are tested, and lands at peace will turn to war.
Sometimes the one most suited to protect you is the one who holds the sharpest blade.
And there is no sharper sword than The Captain.
Hired to Kill. Sworn to Protect.
In the world of the Never Lands, Fairy Tales aren't quite like you remember.

We're back once again to Lornai in THE CAPTAIN to continue the story of Eli/Ella and her prince.
Kit had gotten better as a swordsman due to Eli's training, and he's able not only to defend himself, but to lead in the wars where people from other lands sought to kill him. His war with the dwarves was fascinating, and how he brokered peace surely is a sign of the great leader he is to become. Yet, the dwarves are but one in many who wanted to kill him. Would they succeed in bringing about his death? For his death would mean the fall of the walls, and his kingdom would be ripe for the taking. And what about his feelings for Ella? Would they finally stop denying what they feel?
Here, we see highlights of momentous events that happen over the years where Kit is becoming a strong ruler/negotiator and excellent fighter/leader. There was also some growth and development in his relationship with Ella, though not as much as I'd wanted! I'd hoped for some resolution (though maybe there was some tacit understanding?), but it was not to be! Marius's actions struck me as odd, and I couldn't understand why he acted the way he did.
That said, THE CAPTAIN is a good bridge book, as it continues to fan the flames of my intrigue as to how this fascinating story is to unravel. I am looking forward to the concluding book of this series.
