BLURB:

ANCIENT SECRETS CANNOT REMAIN BURIED FOREVER.
Founded two centuries ago by a powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly.

Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.

As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, new people began arriving in Rowan, unnervingly handsome and odd people. I begged them to leave, but they stayed, because their enemies—my ancestors—were beginning to awaken.

REVIEW:

Rose Petal Graves is blurbed as being A Court of Thorns and Roses meets Pocahontas and I wholeheartedly agree. This is a far story mixed with Native American folklore to create a whole new experience. The Native American tribe in this book is loosely based off of an actual tribe and any traditions in this book are purely fictional.

This macabre book is addicting. Every page unravels the mystery of what happened to Cat’s mum and how can she ensure that the others she loves are safe. Cat is a multi-faceted character, who makes some misguided decisions around trusting people she just met. In my opinion its safe to say her judgement is skewed due to grief.

The new fae mythology and the fat hunters was interesting to read about and I still have questions about this whole new world. I cannot conclude this review without giving a huge round of applause regarding this cover… it’s just wow. Overall, a dark new take on fae with a plot that kept up the momentum. Where is book two?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

ROSE PETAL GRAVES AUTHOR.jpg

Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.

When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).

Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
