We were lucky to get an Advanced Reader Copy of Mette Ivie Harrison's THE ROSE THRONE.
Ailsbet loves nothing more than music; tall and red-haired, she's impatient with the artifice and ceremony of her father's court. Marissa adores the world of her island home and feels she has much to offer when she finally inherits the throne from her wise, good-tempered father. The trouble is that neither princess has the power--or the magic--to rule alone, and if the kingdoms can be united, which princess will end up ruling the joint land? For both, the only goal would seem to be a strategic marriage to a man who can bring his own brand of power to the throne. But will either girl be able to marry for love? And can either of these two princesses, rivals though they have never met, afford to let the other live?
Aimed at readers 12 years and up, THE ROSE THRONE received this praise from author Orson Scott Card:
"A story of two young women born to dangerous, powerful families...But they each have powers of their own, and terrible choices. Another great story from one of my favorite authors."
