Book Review: Captivated


By:  S.A. Archer & S. Ravynheart

Format:  eNovella

Publisher:  Rabynheart Publishing

Publish Date:  January 2013

Series:  5th in Touch series
Affiliated with Champion of the Sidhe series, and Rise of the Unseelie Series

Book Synopsis:
London's had a rough journey and made some bad choices.  She's on the Unseelie hit list and hoping that hooking up with a Seelie is the answer to all her problems.  Only now that she's beginning to get a glimpse of the bigger picture, she finds herself at ground zero of more magical trouble than she ever expected.

First Sentence:
Tall, blond, and delicious heading your way.

My Thoughts and Summary:
London is woken at four in the morning by a text, Lugh is on his way.  Lugh has returned to her as he promised, but somethings off...darker.  He offers to take London as his druidess and with her profession he hires her permanently to find all the relics he needs.

London thinks she has found someone to help her with her needs but she might be the one doing the helping...he might be in more danger than she.

We see Lugh's reactions through London here.  Seeing Lugh see the Unseelie for the first time since the fall of the Mounds.  London has no idea what's happened to him, we do after reading Protector of the Light, so it's neat to see the affects from the outside looking in.  We see a lot of what is becoming of Lugh and being we are new, like London, this is a great place to see it first hand as Willem explains to us what and how 'it' affects Lugh.

This story is heavy with crossover to Lugh's story.  We go in search with Lugh to find the relics he needs, we see Jonathon and Willem, and Willem joining us on this aventure.

London is on a mission, yet taking the pledge to be Lugh's, London feels in to deep and something about Lugh is different.

I'm curious to see the Unseelie story to learn more of their side and curious of Lugh's story with being with London in this one the whole time.

*I read this story for an honest review.


  1. Novella! Hm... I do need to start this series. I do love a good fae tale!

    1. Melissa (B&T) I will say these last books of this section of the series have been wonderful. Hope you get a chance to try them now that all five novellas are out. :) (well, one fifth book is to come, but will come soon)

  2. Ahhhh, I can't read the review because I still need to read book four but this is my fav series of the three. so excited.

    1. Jennifer Bielman! YOU need to get back to these. The fifth books are coming out and they are really amazing! :D

  3. Replies
    1. Carole Rae, they really have grown the story lines in these novellas. I'm impressed. :)

  4. If I haven't read the related series, can I start with the this one, this series, or do I need to start somewhere else?

    1. Hi Bea, I was thinking about this question. I've read all three series one story each at a time. I'm trying to think, you should have no troubles with London's story, but there are answers to questions you might have in the other series.

      Now, I've got to think as the authors are doing series books too.

      The Touched Series, which is London can all be found in one book, for $2.99:

      And I think all the series are being released in two installments:
      Starting with Scattered Magic for $4.50:

      and the second part: Remnants of magic will be out soon.

      I do hope you enjoy it. I think by the end the story has really come into it's own. Maybe if you enjoy Londons, you'll look into the others. :) Thank you!
