I have seen quite a few people saying that Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves is not a good book, but I honestly had a hard time putting it down. Did I skim a few paragraphs here and there? Maybe, but you know what I’ve done that with more famous books (like Harry Potter… I mean who said that not me).
Overall, there’s a lot of great twists, and the mystery stays right up until the very end. I loved the characters, especially Gábor. The great thing you can see how they change and grow. If you’re a history buff, you might find this magic infused version of 1847 intriguing. My only really qualm with the book is that it occasionally had some unnecessary kissing, and the violence became a bit graphic in the last few chapters. Other than that it is a very charming coming of age story about a very unique girl.
When I finished, I started looking to see if there was a sequel I could get my hands on in the future. That’s a definite win for me. I would recommend it to other fantasy lovers for sure.
