    1. Maggie L Wood lives in London, Ontario, where she writes in between doing the cooking and cleaning, reading her favorite YA authors, and watching her favorite AMC, HBO, and Netflix shows Her books, Captured and The Darkening, of The Divided Realms series have had two different publishers and have both been orphaned by their former publishers before the 3rd book in the series Auralict could be published Maggie has decided to publish Auralict and the Divided Realms series herself as e Books, and as paperbacks through s CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

    2. Captured by Maggie L Wood is a fantastic retelling of a game of chess in a YA setting.Back when there was an indie book store with fantastic deals, this book was one a giant cardboard cut out bookshelf with a for sale sign on it At the time, I wasn t a giant reader but I was getting bored with Twilight and vampire novels in general so I picked this book up Little did I know, that I d become obsessed, the third book would be in development for years and years and years and I d forget this book wa [...]

    3. Great fantasy novel I was drawn right into the characters and plot, and I think you will be, too.

    4. The book was exceptionally good The author did a very good job at describing what was happening.I really thought that I was right there watching the characters Basically it was awesome

    5. When I was little, instead of wishing to be a princess, I instead wanted to be an awesome superhero with awesome powers Even now after having grown up I still wish this However, there is this teeny, tiny part of me who wishes to be a princess Really Captured isn t only a book about a girl finding out she s a princess it s also about a whole other fantasy world And I love me a good fantasy book The synopsis doesn t exactly do a good job of describing the book, so let me explain Willow is a normal [...]

    6. I previously read this book under its former title The Princess Pawn, and was surprised to find that this was the same book mostly It was slightly unnerving, because this book is the same book with a new title, however I m fairly certain that there were minor changes done to it Before I discus the story itself, I d just like to say that I perfered the title The Princess Pawn to Captured The Princess Pawn was a unique, interesting and memorable title Captured, well, what does that tell you about [...]

    7. Reading Level Grade 6 8It has always been just Willow and her Nana 15 year old Willow has grown up listening to her grandmother s fairy tales about a magical realm called Mistolear Willow used to enjoy the stories but as her grandmother slips further and further into Alzheimer s, hearing Nana talk of a fantasy world as if IT is the reality hurts.One of her grandmother s fantasies was the summoning spell game where you could touch a special crystal and travel to another world Willow had believed [...]

    8. Sometimes, a book is happy being a C There are books that make a solid attempt at being the next Harry Potter and then there are books that aim much lower and then succeed through less ambition Captured didn t try to be anything bigger It saw the competition, dusted itself off, and said you know what I m just going to be a dumb, quick little read a reader will pick up when they re bored and want a time waster for a couple days and left it at that In Captured, Willow Kingswell is just a normal te [...]

    9. Super awesome While there was a lot to process in the story, everything was so interestingly developed I love it all I m excited to read the rest of the series D

    10. An ordinary teenage girl discovers she s a princess And she has magical powers she must learn to use to defeat the bad guy Oh, and she s magicked into a fantasy medieval realm Sound familiar Yup, does it me, too But wait, this bk has an interesting twist Our heroine Willow belongs to a family cursed to play a game of high stakes chess Really high stakes As in, certain people in the realm represent pawns, rooks, knights, etc They have a Game glow as part of the curse And if they are captured, or [...]

    11. This book and I have a funny history I read it was back when it was still The Princess Pawn and the cover donned not the elegant black, read and white one it does now, but three characters excluding Willow that appeared in the book for all of half a chapter Now its been repackaged, rewritten not a whole lot, but the difference is notable , and republished Is it better Well, perhaps the correct question here is not whether it is better but whether or not it is good And, as it turns out, the opini [...]

    12. This was a sweet and short introduction to the Divided Realms series Early on I was introduced to Willow and in turn introduced to the realms, family, and people creatures she had no idea existed Therefore, like Willow I didn t know much about the new world and was forced to cope quickly with the complicated situations.Everything moved so quickly, but Willow and her companions seemed like a good enough team to handle all kinds of adventure, which I m looking forward to with the upcoming books in [...]

    13. I fell in love with the cover as soon as I saw it, and I thought it HAS to be good , and guess what It was It was so much better than good This book was just pure creativity like harry potter A teenager who comes to a strange land where she is a princess and realizes that there s a huge real life chess game going on, and she is the pawn who has to go to the other side of the board to become a queen so she can get magical powers and defeat an evil faerie prince so that the Game spell can be lifte [...]

    14. The cover It s got potential to be pretty, especially with the contrasting red, black and white But the Photoshop effect is all too clear around the girl just from the lighting, you can tell that she wasn t originally from this checkered hall And somehow the whole shebang looks eerily Breaking Dawn esque.The book The chess game premise was interesting, but on the whole the writing in this book fails to deliver The world building is run of the mill, complete with uselessly exotic names, enough fa [...]

    15. I initially found the concept of people being linked to chess pieces in a large scale game of wizard chess to be silly and strange However, I was pleasantly surprised by the novel and think it was well executed This style of fantasy that combines our world with a fantastic one is very effective for teens It allows them to deal with issues like war and family drama at a safe distance At at the same time they feel close to the action because of the character from our world who sees things as they [...]

    16. The one thing I really enjoy about small press self published books is that even though many of them are terrible, there are some gems out there This is one of them The idea of two kingdoms being trapped into playing a giant magical chess game was a unique one, and in the end I enjoyed it a lot Willow really grated on my nerves at first, but she grew on me eventually The writing doesn t flow as well as your standard press YA book, but it wasn t bad either One of the nicest things was that althou [...]

    17. Captured by Maggie L Wood has a very unique chess game storyline Unfortunately the plot drags at times I found my self having to turn to the Cast of Characters page than once to try to figure out who characters were which was very disruptive to the momentum of the story I found the male lead Brand very interesting and was disappointed at his removal from the story halfway through the book Honestly there just wasn t enough spark in this book to make me want to read the second in the series o

    18. I don t get the book, what with all the complicated names all the characters have and the game chess they are playing The story gets all hard to understand at times and I didn t really enjoy the whole process I m giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because there were some nice and funny scenes in the middle of the book I m probably not gonna read book 2 in the near future.

    19. I love the cover of this It CAPTURED my attention hahaCaptured puts a nice twist on the typical normal girl finds out she s a princess and the whole kingdom is depending on her to save it with the added element of a magic chess game that uses real people as the pieces And unlike many YA trilogies today the book had a satisfying conclusion and not a ridiculous cliffhanger.

    20. Interesting book The beginning wasboring and I almost stopped reading it The middle starts becoming interesting as a love story starts to unfold Then the book gets boring again But, by the ending the book becomes extremely interesting Author picked a fun and creative theme If you can push your self past the boring parts the last quarter of the book is good

    21. This book was quite different, to say the least It follows Willow, who is part of a collosal game of chess where lives are at stake I was apprehensive at first glance, but it turned out to be a fairly good story.

    22. Though her books are hard to find, I like Maggie Wood s writing And doesn t every girl want in some way to be a princess Well, being a princess isn t easy for Willow If you want to know , read it And the second book, The Darkening.

    23. Really cool idea Buuut I felt like it wasn t the author writing the story, like typical phrases, plot, and characters in redone fairy stories that have been way overused In other words, not original.

    24. a series that intricately weaves the adventure and strategy of gaming with the romance of faerie tales and medieval folklore luscious descriptions, comedic timing and fast paced action taken from Can Children s Book News Recommended for Gr 7

    25. Great fantasy novel I was drawn right into the characters and plot, and I think you will be, too.Check out my full review of Captured here.

    26. When I first started to read this I thought it was kind of amusing, but as I read on it got boring I continued to read it because I thought it was just going through the plot, characters and back story, but for me it didn t get better and I have no interest in reading the sequels.

    27. Parts of this book were very, very good including that fantastic cover and the premise of the story Parts of this book were not very good at all like the pacing and the clarity of the plot Still, this is a book full of potential.

    28. If you like fairy tales, and young adult books this is a good one to read This is the first book that I read of Maggie L Wood, have the Darkening waiting for me at the library.

    29. After the first few chapters I got worried that this would be mostly about chess strategy and wouldn t keep my attention Luckily that wasn t the case The story was well written and entertaining.
