From the Land of Fire and Ice back to Englands shores, Alexandria Featherstone finds herself the new Duchess of St. Easton. Her husband has promised a wedding trip to take them to the place where her imperiled parents were last seen -- Italy and the marble caves of Carrara -- but a powerful Italian duke plots against Alex and her treasure-hunting parents.
Hoping to save them, Alex and Gabriel travel to Italy by balloon. Fraught with danger on all sides and pressured by Gabriels affliction to the breaking point, they must learn to work and fight together. The mysterious key is within their grasp, but they have yet to recognize it. This journey will require steadfast faith in God and each other -- a risk that will win them everything they want or lose them everything they have.
JCMorrowsAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5An ending has never been so bittersweet...June 20, 2014JCMorrowsAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm not at all certain there are enough words to describe the emotions this powerful story has invoked within me!
In my review of book 2, I said that I hope they NEVER make it into a movie because they'll just ruin it and I still feel that way. But I am amazed at the irony of that statement because there is a note about a certain part of the book only being shown properly on-screen. I simply can not explain it - except to say that it was an odd insight.
I also mentioned that I was quite happy about there was another book because it meant the adventure had not come to a close but now that it has, it is indeed bittersweet.
I love the way the story has ended and I am amazed at how Jamie Carie was able to leave the story with such a feeling of possibility. Even though this story has come to an end, there is such a feeling of what is still to come.
The third book in Jamie Carie's Forgotten Castles series is a shining beacon of what God's love is capable of accomplishing and even though the path of our heroes is not completely free of obstacles, their steps are clearly being led by God's own hand.
The third book is certainly the most serious of the three but it is done so very well, the story simply flows from the second and I applaud Jamie's talent once again.
Like me, you may not wish for the series to end, but you certainly do not want to miss this book. And don't be surprised if you find your heart a little broken as you turn the last pages.
At least Jamie Carie has written stories of other adventures we can enjoy!

HollyMagCovina, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Book Worth RememberingJanuary 21, 2013HollyMagCovina, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I found this a very enjoyable read. The story opens just before Alexandria and Gabriel's wedding. I found it interesting some of the conversation between Alex and her attendant regarding the wedding night. But it plays into the storyline and a secret that Alex kept from Gabriel. I love the romance and the humor between Alex and Gabriel.
The storyline was different than anything I've read before. I enjoyed the adventure aspect of the story as Alex and Gabriel. The author did a great job as she told the story of weaving the characters thoughts and feelings. I enjoyed watching the development of faith in all the characters, but especially Gabriel as he dealt with his affliction.
I was a little surprised by the ending. Not what I expected, but that's okay it was entertaining.
This is book 3 in a series and I didn't read the previous ones. I felt fairly comfortable with following the story, though I think I would have enjoyed it even more had I read the others. Still an enjoyable story and I would read more by this author.
I did receive this book from the publisher through www.netgalley.com however, I'm only expected to give my honest opinion.
KatharinaNorth CarolinaAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5fun but I wish it'd been a bit differentNovember 12, 2012KatharinaNorth CarolinaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3In my review of The Forgiven Duke I mentioned that while book one could be considered YA, book two and also book three had scenes that were not PG. Or even PG-13 for that matter.
Forgiven Duke ends with the wedding of Alexandria and Gabriel. Duke's Promise opens with the wedding night and Alexandria's worries about what will happen that night and what might have happened that one night she was drugged. There's plenty of affection.
And as with book two this final book in the series the adventure continues and the danger escalates. It's not often that characters travel by balloon (only other one I can think of is Wisdom's Kiss by Catherine Murdock) but Alex and Gabriel set off on quite the journey. I really enjoyed their travels and could imagine myself floating along with them and praying that lightning wouldn't strike.
The ending was rather strange and I wish the solution to the mystery had been a bit more fully explained. Especially since up until the end the story didn't seem too fantastical.
Overall Jamie Carie did an excellent job writing an action packed series that smoothly blends the characters' spiritual journeys. Just wish the romance had been toned down a bit in the last two books.
Disclosure: I received this book for free from the publisher through NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
