Britfield & The Return of the Prince ~ a book review

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

Britfield & The Return of the Prince is the 3rd in the series by C. R. Stewart. You can find reviews of Britfield & The Lost Crown and Britfield & The Rise of the Lion on the blog. This is the continuation of the story of Tom, as he searches with Sarah and the Resistance to try to locate the needed information to bring the Committee to complete abolishment and find his parents. But, if you know anything about C.R. Stewart then you expect this to be anything but a straight-forward story.

Continuing the search brings Tom and Sarah, along with all their gathered accomplices, into the next part of the story. Tom’s family is still yet to be reunited with him because too much is happening with the Committee and they can’t risk the reunion where the family could be harmed. So, Tom and Sarah (again, as per usual) take things into their own hands. From the Academy where they are being educated in Switzerland to Rome to the Vatican to the cathedrals to Venice, the story is non-stop. Twists, turns, and hair-raising escapes follow Tom and Sarah every where they go.

If you love the non-stop action, this is your kind of story. Here’s the official summary:

One year later, the Committee has struck back with a vengeance, crippling the Resistance now scattered throughout Europe. When Devonbury Academy in Switzerland is attacked, Tom and Sarah’s only hope is to make it to a safe house in northern Italy by relying on their own experience and training. Overpowered and outnumbered, Tom and Sarah are ruthlessly hunted throughout Italy by the Black Nobility. Henry and Oliver discover a devastating truth, Detective Gowerstone is confronted by a dark secret from his past, and Inspector Fontaine is pushed to her limits. Will Tom and Sarah find the Britfields? Relationships will be challenged and new friendships forged, culminating in an unparalleled finale of sacrifice, romance, revenge, and loss.

My personal thoughts:
I wish I could say I enjoyed this one as much as I did the first book in the series. But I didn’t. It just carried on too long for me and I missed what I loved most in the first book: the historical information on the places Tom and Sarah ended up. While it was still included here, it felt less inclusive and more forced into the story. I felt like the story needed to end and it kept going. I am not typically an adventure reader so this series was an unusual one for me to like to begin with. I feel like it has a wonderful readership out there and two of my girls fit that group. They enjoy this type of literature and my oldest is looking forward to reading Britfield & The Return of the Prince. She will likely really enjoy and be looking towards 2024 when the next book in the series is planned for release.

If you like adventure novels and non-stop action, you will love the Britfield series by C.R. Stewart. Visit these websites for more information.

Also, the author shares the following information: With the first of seven Britfield movies in development, the theatrical play (Fall 2022), and the Global Book Tours (2022-24), it is estimated that Britfield will eventually surpass the Harry Potter series in sales and worldwide impact. The first live-action Britfield movie is projected to become one of the highest grossing films in cinematic history. . . One of the most awarded books in fiction, the Britfield & the Lost Crown series is transforming literature and education while bringing encouragement to children and families worldwide. Creating an interactive world of adventure and learning, Britfield is about friendship, family, and courage. The 7-book series (England, France, Italy, Russia, Asia, South American, United States) will be followed by 7 extraordinary movies.

    I do like adventure and action stories, but I’m not sure this one would appeal to me… might take too long to reach their objective you know? but maybe….
