Rose And The Lost Princess Blog Tour

On April 1st the second book in the Rose series was released. I'm still reading and will review both books later down the road. Suffice it to say, so far I'm enjoying getting to know Rose. She's a wonderfully rich character and look forward to seeing what happens next.

About The Book: Rose isn't like the other orphans at St Bridget's Home for Abandoned Girls. Instead of dreaming of getting adopted by loving, wealthy parents, Rose wants to get a job and be independent. She doesn't need anyone but herself. She finds her escape working as a maid for Mr. Fountain, an alchemist. Unable to ignore the magic that flows throughout the grand residence, Rose realizes that just maybe; she might have a little bit of magic in her too. This new series featuring magicians, witches, talking cats, mist-monsters, and friendships will have young readers in a trance!
Praise for Rose:   "A marvelous mystery... This book is suspenseful and funny and full of colorful characters." - The Buffalo News

"Rich vocabulary and a particularly scary encounter with a powerful witch set this title apart from other books in the genre. Fans of light fantasy and mystery will devour this intriguing story and eagerly await the sequel." - School Library Journal

"The start of a promising new series, English author Holly Webb spins together a shrewd and resourceful main character, a comfortingly familiar plot and writing that shines all the brighter for its simplicity... a book as satisfying and familiar as a cup of hot cocoa." - Shelf Awareness

"Rose is sympathetic and a pleasure to root for, the secondary characters have room to grow, and the ending can be read as a new beginning, leaving plenty of room for a sequel. Character and the day-to-day workings of a wealthy household overshadow magic and plot in this engaging tale of an orphan servant-girl." - Kirkus

About The Book: Now an apprentice magician, Rose is asked to help find a very special missing person.

Turning the worn pages of her spell book, Rose can't believe how much her life has changed. Once a poor orphan, she is now an apprentice to the king's chief magician. But when the country's beloved princess vanishes, everything changes. As rumors of dark magic fly through the city, the king asks Rose for help. She must find the missing princess, before all is lost.

  1. I was totally drawn in by these gorgeous covers! It gives it a very gothic feel--and I love the premise about an orphan apprenticing with an alchemist. Thanks for featuring this!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I felt the same about the covers. The first covers were less appealing to me because they were all one color. This reallly showcases Rose's character.

  2. Love the covers. Magic and mystery -- can't go wrong with that formula. I'll be looking for these. Thanks for telling me about them.

  3. I agree about the covers - very appealing! These books sounds great for girls who like stories about magic.

  4. I've heard a lot of good things about this series. I think at least one book was shortlisted for the Cybils award.


I would love to hear from you!
