"Prepare to be spellbound" in this fast-paced and action-packed final installment of the Blood Rose Rebellion trilogy, perfect for fans of Six of Crows.
The Binding is broken. Mátyás is alive. And Anna Arden is on the run.
It seems, yet again, that breaking the Binding has shattered the world. And the only hope of mending it is Anna and Mátyás, working together. But it's never that simple, is it? The praetheria, the creatures once held captive by the spell, are now waging war against the Austro-Hungarian empire. And they are holding Noémi hostageusing her life to manipulate Anna and Mátyás, like marionettes on a string.
Gábor has elected to stay behind, to fight in the Hungarian army's resistance, while Anna and Mátyás search for their beloved Noémia mission doomed from the start, cloaked in praetherian magic. Magic that relies on illusion and misdirection. Eventually, there's only one way to save her: to split up. And to walk right into the lion's den.
When everyone thinks they're fighting each other for the same thingfreedomcan anyone truly win?

I am a huge fan of Rosalyn Eve's Blood Rose Rebellion series, and this final installment, while bittersweet because it is the end of the story line, did not disappoint! From the romance and action to the plot and character arcs, Rosalyn weaves a heart wrenching tale of why things like love (of others as well as yourself) and equality are vital to the survival of any race. Add a dash of fantasy and a pinch of history, and you have a literary masterpiece, which is exactly what this book is! Not to mention that Rosalyn once again succeeded in spinning me full tilt with her plot twist. 5 magnificent stars for a magnificent book!
While reading Winter War Awakening, I could not help but wonder what if Lucy from the Chronicles of Narnia and Meg Murray from A Wrinkle In Time were to meet, it be in this book. Befriending a stranger and having that person be your key survival buddy in getting through a Winter War does not get more conflicting than that. There were some parts however, that went off on small tangents making it hard to follow but when it got back on point, you could not stop reading. We will definitely consider this title for our YFantasy collection. That is why we are giving this book 4 stars.
