Title: Rose Shadow
Genre: YA Fantasy
Violet is a kick-ass heroine of a different, stubbornly kindhearted sort. Raised in an isolated wood by her secretive Grandmother, she longs to know more about herself, but encounters only more questions when she is summoned to the royal court by the ruthless Countess Is'aura.
Violet is escorted to court by the disinherited noble Raven, who warns her that the Countess’ true intention is to teach Violet magic in order to enhance her own power. Violet wants to trust the Countess, who claims to have been a friend of Violet's mother, and is her best chance to understand her past; but she wants to trust Raven too, even as their time together leaves her simultaneously exasperated and entranced.
When Violet is forced to wield ancient, dangerous magic in the form of a tapestry woven of her own memories, finding the truth about herself may cost her everything she is.
The wood was a great green dragon, and I was its treasure, greedily horded.
