BOOK REVIEW: The White Rose by Amy Ewing


BLURB:

Violet is on the run—away from the Jewel, away from a lifetime of servitude, away from the Duchess of the Lake, who is officially done playing nice. Now, along with Ash and her best friend, Raven, Violet has no choice but to escape or face certain death.

As they make their way through the circles of the Lone City, Regimentals track their every move, and the trio barely manages to make it out unscathed and into the safe haven they were promised—a mysterious house in the Farm.

But there’s a rebellion brewing just beneath the Jewel’s glittering surface, and Violet has found herself in the middle of it. Alongside a new ally, Violet discovers her Auguries are much more powerful than she ever imagined. But is she strong enough to rise against the Jewel and everything she has ever known?

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 12 years, 11 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book captured my attention within the first paragraph. Sadly, I couldn't finish the book completely because it was inappropriate at some areas. However, once I am a little bit older I will read this book all the way to the end because it is so good from what I read. 

Violet is the main character and she needs to get to safety because the Duchess will find a way to make her suffer for what she has done. The Duchess already killed the one friend that Violet had, Annabelle. Now Violet must safe herself and the others from the Duchess' grip. 

I recommend this book to fantasy lovers that are waiting for another heartbreaking book. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up.
