#BookReview: The Traitor Prince (Ravenspire #3) by @CJRedwine

About the Book:

Javan Najafai, crown prince of Akram, has spent the last ten years at an elite boarding school, far away from his kingdom. But his eagerly awaited return home is cut short when a mysterious imposter takes his place—and no one believes Javan is the true prince.

After barely escaping the imposter’s assassins, Javan is thrown into Maqbara, the kingdom’s most dangerous prison. The only way to gain an audience with the king — and reveal Javan’s identity — is to fight in Maqbara’s yearly tournament. But winning is much harder than acing competitions at school, and soon Javan finds himself beset not just by the terrifying creatures in the arena, but also a band of prisoners allied against him, and even the warden herself.

The only person who can help him is Sajda, who has been enslaved by Maqbara’s warden since she was a child, and whose guarded demeanor and powerful right hook keep the prisoners in check. Working with Sajda might be the only way Javan can escape alive — but she has dangerous secrets.

Together, Javan and Sajda have to outwit the vicious warden, outfight the deadly creatures, and outlast the murderous prisoners intent on killing Javan. If they fail, they’ll be trapped in Maqbara for good—and the secret Sajda’s been hiding will bury them both.

Notes and Opinions:  This one has a lot of action in and a lot of supence I couldnt put it down and either will you!! The author has created once again a wonderful world full of magic and wonder.  Javan was a great chracter for this POV and I cant wait for more.  This is a story about sacrifice with beautiful and very detailed fantasy that worked out very well. I loved all the chracters and they were all fully formed.  I enjoyed the deadly gladiator-like fights against creatures and the romance within the story.  The best thing about these books is although this is a series you can read them out of order. They do have some crossover characters but you wont really miss anything if you dont read books one and two.
