In my first book review I'm sharing my thoughts on this lovely novella by Jessica Greyson. Annabeth's War was her debut work and it happens to be the first book I read from beginning to end on my new Kindle! It's an exciting tale of a young girl's quest to save her loved ones and her country from an evil Lord that has his eyes on the throne while the King is away at war and the fascinating characters she meets along the way.


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 Thoughts On "Annabeth's War"

This is a lovely book full of adventure and unexpected twists. It focuses on friendship, trust, loyalty and faith through immense hardships and loss.

Despite the hardships faced by the main character, the story remained interesting and positive, drawing me in right from the start.

Jessica Greyson uses beautifully descriptive language to transport you straight into Annabeth's world. It's a place of Kings and Princes at war and their towering castles, but it's also a land of forests, streams and cobble stone streets in crowded villages. 

There are quite a few interesting characters you meet along the way, and you're never quite sure who is friend and who is foe. I really liked that about this book.

The story itself isn't quite realistic in that the fate of the land lies in the hands of this young girl and her sword, but it's a wonderful adventure and escape from the norm which I thoroughly enjoyed.

I was happy that this book used clean language and there were no explicit scenes at all which is quite refreshing when you're coming from years of watching Netflix. 

Four Stars

Overall I thought this book was a fun read, the characters were interesting and the plot held my attention from start to finish.

I couldn't wait to see what would happen next or where Annabeth and her companions would end up. 

A sweet, easy to read book for Young Adults as well as older readers.
