Product description

Product Description

After seven grueling years of captivity in the Garden—a burlesque troupe of slave girls—sixteen-year-old Rose finds an opportunity to escape during a performance for the emperor. But the hostage she randomly chose from the crowd to aid her isn't one of the emperor's men—not anymore. He's the former heir to the throne, who is now leading a rebellion against it.

Rayce is a wanted man and dangerously charismatic, the worst person for Rose to get involved with, no matter what his smile promises. But he assumes Rose's attempt to take him hostage is part of a plot to crush the rebellion, so he takes her ashis hostage. Now Rose must prove where her loyalties lie, and she offers Rayce a deal—if he helps her rescue the other girls, she'll tell him all the Garden's secrets.

Except the one secret she's kept for seven years that she'll to take to her grave if she must.

Alright, unpopular opinion time. I've checked other reviews of Garden of Thorns and see that I'm way out on this one, but unfortunately this is just the way I feel about it (trust me, this is upsetting as I thought this book was going to blow my mind). When I received this ARC, I couldn't have been happier. The synopsis sound ah-mazing. I started reading immediately and then, around a third of the way through the book I had to stop. I've now skimmed through the rest of the book to the end. The premise was strong and sounded great, then why did I suddenly stop reading? Well, I'll explain below.

For me, the biggest problem with Garden of Thorns is simply that what I imagined this book to be, wasn't what it turned out to be, and the new direction just couldn't capture my attention to keep me reading. Mainly because:

>The start is strong, but the story quickly drops into, I'm not sure how to put it, a slow pace? I'm not sure how to describe how it felt to me, but the best I can do is that it felt like I was treading a familiar garden path in the middle of winter rather than the height of spring. All of the skeleton was there, but it just didn't give me the feeeels.

>I believe the biggest issue with Garden of Thorns was that I just couldn't connect to the MC, Rose. She was very reflective (and I normally don't mind that), but her voice felt a little dry. She felt too cardboard. The mystery was obvious (which I think it was supposed to be obvious), but I didn't feel invested enough to hang around for the big reveals.

>The writing style is good, flows well and is easy to read.

>The secondary characters and romance was too dry and obvious again. Where was the tension? the gorgeous slow-burn? The feels?

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss out! 5 April 2017
By Brianna Seaton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was very skeptical at first with this book. I read the sample preview before I bought it and by the end, I was still on the fence about buying it. This book is about a girl called Rose who is in a carnival like setting, captured by a man called the Gardener. He has taken so many women and pair them up to bond. One performs acts, the second takes all the punishments from the others mistakes. After a tragic happening, Rose decides to flee. During a performance, she grabs a hostage only to find out that the hostage is Rayce, the leader of the rebellion. After they escape, the story goes on revealing the many trials of trying to right the wrongs the emperor has made.

I mentioned I was skeptical of this book at first but I am so glad I gave it a shot! The characters are amazing and the story picks up to a great place, keeping you intrigued to the very end. What I love most about this book is that there is an infatuation between Rose and Rayce but it isn't the insta love I always seem to come across. Each character developes with the story and it doesn't leave you disappointed.

If you are debating on buying this book after reading the preview like I was, please take my word for it and buy it because it is amazing and you won't regret it!
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Fantasy! 6 June 2017
By Lily - Published on Amazon.com

This fantasy was action packed with a lot of depth and complexity. The characters are memorable. It was one of those books that are hard to put down. The ending is complete but leaves plenty of room for the story to continue, so I really hope there will be another book soon. There is plenty of emotional depth, difficult decisions, twists and turns, and satisfying justice. Great first start! I look forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 8 March 2017
By Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I sat down with this book at about 7:30pm, and put it down only to get some food before I finished reading it at about 11:30pm that same night. I'll freely say I am a fast reader so your mileage may vary in the speed department, but it was a very engaging book that I just couldn't put down.

My two biggest gripes are really nitpicky (Mild spoilers until next paragraph): Almost all deaths were via beheading of some form, and there was an improper use of a tourniquet.

I'm also very much not the target audience, but it was still very enjoyable. Definitely recommend it, regardless of your age or gender.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a like 12 April 2017
By MamaMutter - Published on Amazon.com

As much as I enjoyed this story and its lyrical qualities it was still missing the magic for me. I guess I'd say it was predictable I a way. And so for me it was a like. I think the absolute best part of this story are the beautiful characters. I hope in the books to come they continue to be the best part, but maybe the next book will have a dash of the unexpected
