"Annabeth's War" by Jessica Greyson

About this book:

  “With King Harold away at war Lord Raburn has his eye on the throne. Those who dare to stand in his way fall beneath his power. All but one. A girl named Annabeth. Can a common, ordinary girl, with love for king, country, and her father, achieve the impossible?
  Trained by her father, a master swordsman, outlawed Annabeth has only her sword, her wits, and her disguises to keep Belterra from falling entirely into Lord Raburn's clutches. Can she rescue her captured father and Prince Alfred? Will one girl keep the kingdom from falling?”

My personal Rating-

“Annabeth’s War” is very clean in the romance content, it was really sweet. Overall, it was pretty clean, but all the pain/killing/blood scenes made my personal rating lower, due to the fact I’m not one for details on that content. ;)
I was a bit confused at the beginning, but I caught on quickly. :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
