The White Rose (The Lone City #2)  by Amy Ewing


Review: I have to start off by saying how much I love this cover! There is so much detail that you don’t even see at first and have to keep looking at it to see the rest.

Ok, now that is out of the way….

I really liked how the romance was not the main point of this book, I know it wasn’t in the first one… But it did kind of come out of nowhere. But the author did a great job having it in the background, while focusing the main story plot on more important things. Things like rebelling back.

Even though this book didn’t have a lot to it, meaning it really felt like a filler ( or set up for the next book). So it was still a good read even though it was just laying out the plan for the next in the series.

4 out of 5 stars.

308 pages. Hardback.

Young Adult. Romance. Fantasy. Science Fiction. Dystopia.

Published by HarperTeen.

Summary: Violet is on the run. 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 the Jewel or face certain death. So along with Ash and her best friend, Raven, Violet runs away from her unbearable life of servitude.

But no one said leaving the Jewel would be easy. 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 out unscathed and 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?

The White Rose is a raw, captivating sequel to The Jewel that fans won’t be able to put down until the final shocking moments.
