I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Rose and the Lost Princess Genres: Christian Fiction
Rose’s whole life has changed in a matter of weeks. She’s gone from being a lonely orphan to a magician’s apprentice, though she’s learned that power comes at a price. Even Rose’s friends don’t seem to trust her anymore, especially when rumors of dark magic begin to swirl through the city.
Then the country’s beloved princess vanishes, and the king asks Rose for her help. She must find the missing princess and put a stop to the evil magician behind the kidnapping… before all is lost.
I found out about Rose doing what I do the best – spending my lunch break in Barnes and Noble discovering new books. I was captivated by the cover of Rose (Book #1) so I decided to buy it without reading the synopsis.
What I discovered about Rose transcended me to an imaginative world full of adventures. I was excited when I was asked to read/review, Rose & The Lost Princess (Book#2). Holly Webb does an excellent job of giving the reader the back story of Rose. If you haven’t read the first book, you will fall right in line with the story. The free-spirited and spunky, Rose we have grown to love is getting adjusted to her new-found magical powers. It’s Good vs Evil – Who will prevail?
Rose & The Lost Princess was a very fun read. Holly Webb draws readers into a fantastical and magical world that they will not want to leave. I would recommend this book to children ages nine and older.
About the Author: Holly was born and grew up in southeast London but spent a lot of time on the Suffolk coast. As a child, she had two dogs, a cat, and at one point, nine gerbils (an accident). At about ten, Holly fell in love with stories from Ancient Greek myths, which led to studying university. She worked for five years as a children’s fiction editor before deciding that writing was more fun and easier to do from a sofa. Now living in Reading with her husband, three sons, and two cats, Holly runs a Guide unit. The Rose books stem from a childhood love of historical novels and the wish that animals really could talk.
