Blood Rose Rebellion
By :Rosalyn Eves
About the author herself:
Rosalyn Eves grew up in the Rocky Mountains, dividing her time between reading books and bossing her siblings into performing her dramatic scripts. As an adult, the telling and reading of stories is still one of her favorite things to do. When she's not reading or writing, she enjoys spending time with her chemistry professor husband and three children, watching British period pieces, or hiking through the splendid landscape of southern Utah, where she lives. She dislikes housework on principle. Her first book, BLOOD ROSE REBELLION, comes out Spring 2017 from Knopf.
What it's about:
The thrilling first book in a YA fantasy trilogy for fans of Red Queen. In a world where social prestige derives from a trifecta of blood, money, and magic, one girl has the ability to break the spell that holds the social order in place.
Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden is barred from society by a defect of blood. Though her family is part of the Luminate, powerful users of magic, she is Barren, unable to perform the simplest spells. Anna would do anything to belong. But her fate takes another course when, after inadvertently breaking her sister’s debutante spell—an important chance for a highborn young woman to show her prowess with magic—Anna finds herself exiled to her family’s once powerful but now crumbling native Hungary.
Her life might well be over.
In Hungary, Anna discovers that nothing is quite as it seems. Not the people around her, from her aloof cousin Noémi to the fierce and handsome Romani Gábor. Not the society she’s known all her life, for discontent with the Luminate is sweeping the land. And not her lack of magic. Isolated from the only world she cares about, Anna still can’t seem to stop herself from breaking spells.
As rebellion spreads across the region, Anna’s unique ability becomes the catalyst everyone is seeking. In the company of nobles, revolutionaries, and Romanies, Anna must choose: deny her unique power and cling to the life she’s always wanted, or embrace her ability and change that world forever.
What did I think:
My rating: 4
Liked about it:
historical fantasy and magic aspect of the story
successful blend of fantasy,star crossed romance, history and magic and how the author Rosalyn Eves introduces characters who are interesting and different and brave and likable and those who are repulsive, dishonorable, underhanded, dangerous, and untrustworthy as well as pulls you into the story and brings it to life.
How Anna couldn't see and understand that even without magic she already had people who loved her for her self , it takes her along while to figure that out.
Would have like more on:
Luminate's as well as the Barrens , the markings they have , the hole magic system in general,
With that side I would love to think Blogging For Books for send me a copy of Blood Rose Rebellion in a change for my honest opinion which this is .
