The Rose Throne

| Wednesday, May 1, 2013
Richly-imagined fantasy romance from the author of Princess and the Hound, a tale of two princesses--one with magic, one with none--who dare seek love in a world where real choice can never be theirs. For fans of Megan Whalen Turner, Catherine Fisher, and Cassandra Clare. 

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?

Mette Ivie HarrisonMy first book, THE MONSTER IN ME was accepted for publication in 1999 and was published in 2002. My second book,MIRA, MIRROR was published in 2004. My third book, the first in a trilogy I call "The Hound Saga," is THE PRINCESS AND THE HOUND and was published in 2007. The second book, THE PRINCESS AND THE BEAR, came out in 2009. The third book, THE PRINCESS AND THE SNOWBIRD, came out in April 2010. TRIS AND IZZIE came out with Egmont in 2011 and I have a new book called THE ROSE THRONE coming out in May 2013. Ironmom will be out with in June 2013.

I tried so hard to like this book.  I love the cover and just adored what the book was about. But for the story itself it really fell short for me.  It was slow and the magic system was very confusing.  I just found that I couldnt really get into the book at all.
