What I Loved:
I love a fairytale fantasy and that’s SO what I got with Protagonist Bound! I loved the world the author created for this story! I’ll go into that in detail below, but it was so much fun!
Crisanta Knight is the daughter of Cinderella, and with that royal heritage comes a heavy responsibility to be the perfect princess and live a fairytale life. Except Crisanta isn’t interested in that. She doesn’t want to be saved by a prince, sing with the birds, or learn the importance of high heels.
Crisanta lives in Book, a realm where the stories of people’s lives are written by the Author. Protagonists are determined by the author, and once your Book appears, your life is in the hands of the Author.
So, as royalty, Crisanta has been a protagonist since birth. She has two years left at Lady Agnue’s School for Princesses & Other Female Protagonists and her Prologue could appear at any time. When it finally does, she wants nothing to do with it and sets out on a dangerous journey with her friends to find out how to change it.
How I Felt:
The world Geanna Culbertson has created is so well described, I could envision everything, and I loved that! She provided detail that allowed me to truly see the buildings and people. She did an excellent job, and it has set up a world that people will continue to love throughout the series. The “Author” that decides who is a protagonist and what each character’s story will be was an interesting concept. I’m really excited to see what happens in book two as Crisanta tries to change her “Prologue”.
The characters were wonderful. Crisanta Knight, the main character, is absolutely fabulous. Her attitude is a bit sassy and so determined that you can’t help but love her. She addresses the reader directly like she’s telling them the story, and I really enjoyed that writing choice. Crisanta provides side comments, and goes on diatribes at times, even in the middle of a fight.Continue reading “Protagonist Bound by Geanna Culbertson”
