Publisher's Summary

Two sisters. One enchanted forest. And a hidden destiny that could doom them both....

I didn’t want to come live in the castle beside the Darkwood, and I especially didn’t want to become enemies with my stepsister Neeve. But how could I help it? She has magic, while I’m an ordinary girl. She’s the heir to the throne, while I’m an annoying afterthought since my mother married the king. And Neeve has the ability to master her emotions while I’m a re-haired disaster. 

She also has Thorne, the handsome guardian of the forest who tutors her in the powers that are her heritage. Even though I know he could never be mine, I can’t keep my heart from dreaming of the impossible. 

But everything changes the day I uncover the secrets the castle has been hiding....

Fast, fun read

This was a fast, fun read. I really enjoyed Rose, and I loved the Darkwood (magical forests are some of my favorite settings, and the Darkwood is really well done.) I’m excited to see where the story goes next.

I liked the narration overall, but her voices for some characters were a little whiny.

Loved it

I absolutely love a good fairytale retelling, but they can be hard to come by because sometimes they’re a little cheesy or too dark, or too far fetched…this one however was AMAZING!!! I loved the mystery that was entwined in the story as things slowly unraveled. I loved the lifelike dynamic of the character’s relationships and controversies. I thought the writing was beautifully done, with a lot of showing instead of telling which enhanced the listening experience for me as I got to imagine the scenes as they unfolded. I will definitely be looking for more by this author.

Snow White and rose red

I loved this story so much!!! If you love fairytales or their retellings then this is definitely a book you should read! I haven’t read many books with Snow White and rose red and this was an amazing treat! I didn’t want o stop listening from the moment I hit play. I felt like I was transported to another world I didn’t want to leave. The story was a joy to follow along with. I wasn’t always sure where it was going to go but I just wanted to keep going where it was going to lead. There were myths, magic, and so many fun moments to the story. I loved the main characters and had so much fun. There were some very interesting mysteries to figure out along with the magic. Rose and Neeve grew so much throughout the story and I was very pleased by that.

Another fabulous book!!

This awesome book actually starts like most, mom and daughter going to new home because mom just married this guy. That was about as typical as it got. The building of the characters of Rose and Nive, were subtle yet full of secrets and what appeared to be hostility. So much that she follows Nive into the forest because she want to see what is being hidden fro, her and she just can't keep out of what's happening. She meets Thorn and is jealous in my opinion of the connection between Thorn and Nive. She decides they look to much alike and before asking she decides Nive is not all human. From here the story keeps growing as well as the friendships.

Rose gets angry at times and certain things happen that she along with others can not understand why. She always leaves out the part of her notes about being angry. I am sure later in the stories this will be expanded on. The Prince is sent to court for fostering and tosses some into disarray. Rose becomes ill and her mom takes her back home, which is not smart as the whacked priests that are in control want Rose. They eventually make it back home, and now the story will continue.

I am leaving lots out because they would be spoilers in my opinion. I can not wait for the next installment!! I truly enjoyed being brought into this fantasy. Thank you for the opportunity!!

White As Frost

This was a really, really good book. I liked both the main characters Rose and Neeve. Rose came to live with Neeve and her father, the king, in the castle of Raine when her mother married the king. The first thing that caught my attention was before they even got to the castle, things were happening that caused lots of questions. I like Rose's personality especially in contrast with her mother's.

I did feel bad for Rose to start out because she wanted her new 'sister' to want to be friends as much as she did, and Neeve just wasn't having it. As the story unfolds, I loved learning the secrets that the place and especially the woods holds. The creatures and the magic, I'm just itching to learn more. I think this book has wonderfully set up the series to follow. Each time we get an answer, it seems more questions come to mind. The author does a great job with keeping you intrigued and wanting to keep listening for more. I can't wait for the next book.

Wow! Wonderful Story!

I wasn't sure where this story and journey would take me but it took me to a world of myth, fantasy, magic, war and intrigue. I loved the story of both Rose and Neeve, I loved learning the mysteries of both of their pasts and seeing how much they've grown throughout the story.

not what I expected

It's like you are listening to an adult sometimes who has childish tendencies. It wasn't what i expected nor does it hold my attention couldn't make it past the first hour.
