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.

“The White Rose” by Amy Ewing has such a beautiful cover. I love it so much. I actually thought “The White Rose” was a lot better than “The Jewel.” I really enjoyed the story and how the characters were developing even more. Some characters back stories were revealed like Ash.

Violet has Raven picked up in her stead. Ash is wrongly accused of raping Violet. Violet and Ash flee. Ash, Violet, and Raven are beginning their journey together by escaping to ‘The White Rose.’ They have a few bumps along the way and some complications. These three end up making it to their destination.

So many things are beginning to be revealed in “The White Rose.” I was hooked right away on the story plot line. I wanted to know as much information as I could. I think it is great that the characters really develop in this book. I think each characters comes into their own personalities and beliefs. Friendships seem to build between the different characters which I also really enjoyed. I feel like now each of them have a connection besides their one connection with Violet.

I was never a huge Ash and Violet fan but I did like the fact that Ewing focused on developing their relationship rather than bringing another person in. I thought getting away from the love triangle for once was amazing. I really enjoyed the fact that so many characters began to get their own stories and grow as characters. It made me extremely happy.

I am really looking forward to seeing how this series ends and where all the characters end up. I think book three is going to be amazing. I can’t wait to have it in my hands.
