If saying ‘I love you’ meant death, would you still say it?
The Wilted Rose, of faery-tale and folklore, is a pirate ship filled with unfortunate souls-each forbidden to love. One such soul is Valencia ‘Lennie’ Roux. Raised in a brothel and an heir to a curse; Lennie never expected to pique the interest of any man. Yet with the arrival of vivid-eyed Nathaniel, she is torn between wanting to know him better and fearing what that knowledge would mean.
With Nathaniel bringing the crew’s total to six, the Wilted Rose sets off in search of the remaining two heirs. They hope that in reuniting, they will convince the faery Sorceress responsible for the curse, to end it. However lurking beneath the water is a long standing enemy of the Wilted Rose; who is determined to thwart their quest and bring down its leaders.
Together the eight heirs fight for survival, friendship and love.
I received and eARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I would like to start of this review to thank Oftomes Publishing for giving me such an opportunity.
I really enjoyed this book a lot and i would definitely read more of Freedom Matthews books in the future.
The plot was AMAZING. I love how this book was so unpredictable, which is really rare for a Young Adult book. One of my favourite thing about this book is not knowing when there will be a twist. I did however feel that the pace of the book was a bit too fast at the beginning. Freedom Matthews writing is really interesting. It captured my attention right from the start.
I also enjoy reading about all the character and i will definitely read more book published by Oftomes in the future.
Overall, i will recommend this book to everyone.
