The White Rose

No one said leaving The Jewel would be easy.

After the Duchess of the Lake catches Violet with Ash, the hired companion at the Palace of the Lake, Violet has no choice but to escape. So along with Ash and her best friend, Raven, Violet runs away from her unbearable life of servitude.

But as they make their way through the circles of the Lone City, Regimentals track their every move, and the trio barely manages to make it into the safe haven they were promised-a mysterious house in the Farm.

But there's a rebellion brewing, and Violet has found herself in the middle of it. Alongside a new ally, Violet discovers her Auguries are much more powerful than she ever imagined. But is she strong enough to rise up against the Jewel and everything she has ever known? - excerpt from book.

The White Rose by Amy Ewing is the second book of the Lone City trilogy. My attention was already captured at the start of the book, it was super exciting and action packed. With a start like this, the book was bound to be good and surely it did not disappoint me at all. It was a book that was hard to put down, you have to keep reading to know their journey. As you can tell, the plot was fantastically good, non stop action and excitement with many incidents in the story. The incidents that happen are very smooth and connects really well to the plot line, everything happens at very good timing. The plot twists were just so good and unexpected.

The main character in this book has the most growth in this second book and mostly it is the circumstances that she's in that needed her to change. I love that we get to learn more about the side characters in this book as the first book just manage to touch the surface of those characters and in this book so much more was revealed about their past. Their actions towards incidents of the book was fantastic and on point to their personality. I loved every character in this book and they truly make the story come alive.

This second book really beat the ball out of the park. It was exciting, capturing, fast-paced and also with a message attached to the story. I couldn't stop reading so I finished it quickly hoping it was a thicker book. I absolutely loved this book more than the first which was a great start but this second book puts so much more perspective into the world that the characters live in. I highly recommend this book to fantasy lovers, although there might be similarities to other books it's still unique. If you have read the first book, you must read the second, it will not disappoint you. I seriously can't wait for the last one to be out, it's gonna be a one year wait. For those who have not read this trilogy go pick up the first book, my review is here: The Jewel (The Lone City #1)
