Blood Rose Rebellion Playlist
The playlist is a little eclectic, but I was looking for songs that captured the kind of haunting tone I was aiming for in much of the book. I think of “I of the Monster” as a kind of theme song for Anna. Other songs, like Koncz Zsuzsa’s “Ha én rósza volnék” represent more classical Hungarian folktunes, like the ones Anna would have encountered in Hungary for the first time. Others, like “Brave” and “Uprising” are simply good fight songs. 🙂
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Rosalyn Eves grew up in the Rocky Mountains, dividing her time between reading books and bossing her siblings into performing her dramatic scripts. As an adult, the telling and reading of stories is still one of her favorite things to do. When she’s not reading or writing, she enjoys spending time with her chemistry professor husband and three children, watching British period pieces, or hiking through the splendid landscape of southern Utah, where she lives. She dislikes housework on principle. BLOOD ROSE REBELLION is her first novel.
Wendy lives in West Dundee, the best neighborhood in America (as crowned by Good Morning America in 2010) with her husband, two kids, and a couple of guinea pigs.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Blood Rose Rebellion
Author: Rosalyn Eves
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: March 28, 2017
Format: Hardcover, Paperback, eBook, Audio
The thrilling first book in a YA fantasy trilogy for fans of Red Queen. In a world where social prestige derives from a trifecta of blood, money, and magic, one girl has the ability to break the spell that holds the social order in place.
Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden is barred from society by a defect of blood. Though her family is part of the Luminate, powerful users of magic, she is Barren, unable to perform the simplest spells. Anna would do anything to belong. But her fate takes another course when, after inadvertently breaking her sister’s debutante spell—an important chance for a highborn young woman to show her prowess with magic—Anna finds herself exiled to her family’s once powerful but now crumbling native Hungary.
Her life might well be over.
In Hungary, Anna discovers that nothing is quite as it seems. Not the people around her, from her aloof cousin Noémi to the fierce and handsome Romani Gábor. Not the society she’s known all her life, for discontent with the Luminate is sweeping the land. And not her lack of magic. Isolated from the only world she cares about, Anna still can’t seem to stop herself from breaking spells.
As rebellion spreads across the region, Anna’s unique ability becomes the catalyst everyone is seeking. In the company of nobles, revolutionaries, and Romanies, Anna must choose: deny her unique power and cling to the life she’s always wanted, or embrace her ability and change that world forever.
