BLOG TOUR/GIVEAWAY: Rose and the Lost Princess by Holly Webb


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.


Holly Webb is the author of Dog Magic, Cat Magic, and Lost in the Snow. She has always loved animals and owns two very spoiled cats. They haven't said a word to her yet, but she's always listening, just in case! She lives in England.


Rose's magical abilities have been discovered by her master as well as the rest of the household. And while her master and her fellow apprentice, Freddie, accept her and her abilities, the other servants now fear her and one of the maids even torments her. While Rose debates whether to stay or go, winter strikes with a vengeance and an attempt is made to kidnap one of the princesses.  Combining these events with Miss Swallow's attempts to use child blood to achieve eternal life, there is a growing prejudice against those that practice magic.  When Rose is asked to help protect the princess she finds herself smack dab in the middle of the growing tension. And the disappearance of the princess complicates things further. 

A delightful continuation of a wonderful British series that combines adventure and magic with history.  Sure to be a child-pleaser, I can heartily recommend it. The book is not only a quick and exciting read but the characters are sure to be enjoyed. Rose is a feisty young lady who refuses to take her mistreatment lying down, but she still struggles with uncertainty about her magical abilities and where they might take her. But as the possibilities start to percolate in her brain, the growing fear and hatred of magicians makes her wonder where she really belongs.  Her experiences at the palace also add to her confusion.  

I think that a lot of young fantasy readers will thoroughly enjoy this new series.
