“A tense, fast-paced fantasy.” —Taylor Fenner, author of The Haunting Love
After seven grueling years of captivity in the Garden—a burlesque troupe of slave girls—sixteen-year-old Rose finds an opportunity to escape during a performance for the emperor. But the hostage she randomly chose from the crowd to aid her isn't one of the emperor's men—not anymore. He's the former heir to the throne, who is now leading a rebellion against it.
Rayce is a wanted man and dangerously charismatic, the worst person for Rose to get involved with, no matter what his smile promises. But he assumes Rose's attempt to take him hostage is part of a plot to crush the rebellion, so he takes her ashis hostage. Now Rose must prove where her loyalties lie, and she offers Rayce a deal—if he helps her rescue the other girls, she'll tell him all the Garden's secrets.
Except the one secret she's kept for seven years that she'll to take to her grave if she must.
The Garden of Thorns series is best enjoyed in order.
Book #1 Garden of Thorns
Book #2 War of the Wilted
Garden of Thorns
Compelling story. Enjoyable read. Wanted to know more about Rose’s sisters. Hopefully, the next book will fill that void.
A cute book🌹
This was a very cute read. I didn't want to put it down until I got closer to the end of the book. It's definitely a mix of all the popular books out right now but I liked this take on a garden theme throughout the story. I wish the main characters were described better. The book is rushed toward the end and the love story was just smashed into a few chapters to quickly finish but the start is a very good read. I want to continue the next book just to get more details from the characters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for quick read. 🌹🥀🌺💐🌻🌸🌼
Forced Romance Ruins Story
“Oh I’ll never trust a man again” -falls over herself for guy she just met-
This had the potential to be a really good story but wrecked it with the forced romance. Had to force myself to finish it because if I bought it I’m gonna read it.
