The Blood Rose Rebellion is set in the world of an "alternate Victorian England" per Eves, and the main character, Anna is a young woman who is alienated from her place in society due to a lack of magical ability. All of her family have magical powers, but Anna's lack of magic not only is an embarrassment to her and her family, but also wreaks havoc to unravel the magic of others in her presence. Following an embarrassing event at her sister's societal magical debut, Anna leaves England with her grandmother to hide out in Hungary. Little does Anna realize, that her true adventure has just begun.
Eves's novel is captivating from the very beginning. She weaves a story with intrigue, mystique, and romance. Her characters are as engaging as her plot is riveting. It is easy for me to recommend Rosalyn Eves book, The Blood Rose Rebellion to both young adult and mature readers.
