Crannig Castle Book Review


Crannig Castle is here, and it’s time to celebrate with a Blog Tour! For all the fun, visit Morgan Huneke’s blog.

Today, I’m reviewing the book.

Crannig Castle is Book 3 in the Time Captives series. In this book, we find out one of the reasons so many Time Captives are needed: it’s time to find allies, and the Time Captives and their friends split up to convince them to join them. Meanwhile, Adriel is having struggles of his own.

I enjoyed this book as much as the previous two in the series. Fans of the previous books will not be disappointed by this thrilling conclusion. Even though the Time Captives and their friends plan their moves thoroughly, they can’t predict the unexpected twists and turns that the story takes. One twist, in particular, led to an event which startled me very much.  The author did a great job of weaving the plot and the missions together. The characters were relatable.

While the writing may be in a slightly simplistic style, the thrilling complexity of the plot and the characters was superb. I enjoyed the many flashbacks to the lives of the older Time Captives. The ending wrapped up the plot excellently; no one’s stories are left hanging. Personally I found the ending quite creative and perhaps the most memorable part of the entire series. Also, the development of each character throughout the series portrays a realistic and intriguing insight into their personalities. Overall, characters are a strength of this series.

If you enjoy realistic portal fantasy, pick up the Time Captives trilogy today! Books 1 and 2 are free until Friday, so be sure to grab them from the links below.

About the Book


God, please look after Adriel. Keep him safe and keep him from acting foolish. And please help him to be able to find me.
Rae knew she could trust God to look after both of them. It was all she had now.

The Time Captives have been reunited. The rightful king has been freed. Now all that remains is to defeat the strytes who still hold a tyrannical rule over the people of Calhortz. But with their lack of soldiers, it’s a task that is easier said than done. They need allies, but are they worth it when it requires facing ghosts from their pasts?

Returning to his home country only brings the loss of Adriel’s family to the forefront of his mind. His determination to find Rae has never ceased, but now that determination could potentially destroy all that he and the Time Captives have been working towards. And his new-found faith may not be able to withstand the challenge.

Will they be able to set aside their personal struggles for the sake of the freedom of all or will they allow their pasts to consume them? Will they manage to win back Crannig Castle from the rule of the strytes? The fate of Calhortz hangs in the balance.

Crannig Castle is the final book of the Time Captives trilogy, a tale of faith, family, fantasy, and a fight for truth and freedom.
