Book two in The Lone City series

Warning: spoilers ahead if you haven't read the first book in the series.
Violet is on the run. After the Duchess of the Lake catches Violet with Ash, the hired companion at the Palace of the Lake, Violet has no choice but to escape the Jewel or face certain death. So along with Ash and her best friend, Raven, Violet runs away from her unbearable life of servitude.

But no one said leaving the Jewel would be easy. As they make their way through the circles of the Lone City, Regimentals track their every move, and the trio barely manages to make it out unscathed and into the safe haven they were promised—a mysterious house in the Farm.

But there’s a rebellion brewing, and Violet has found herself in the middle of it. Alongside a new ally, Violet discovers her Auguries are much more powerful than she ever imagined. But is she strong enough to rise up against the Jewel and everything she has ever known?

The White Rose is a raw, captivating sequel to The Jewel that fans won’t be able to put down until the final shocking moments.


I read the first book in this series last month and really liked it (click for review).
I'm so excited to know what happens next!


  1. Such a beautiful cover! I'm caught with seeing a "white rose" in her dress and a vanilla cupcake! LOL!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. LOL! I totally see a cupcake now you mentioned it!

  2. EEK I LOVED THE JEWEL! I literally have an arc of The White Rose no freaking lie. BUT I haven't read it. Wanna know why? Because it's so SMALL! Like omg I didn't count the pages but the arc is so thin so I want to wait so I don't have to wait LONGER than a year for the third book if theres a cliff hanger like the first book.

    1. You have an arc?! I'm so jealous! Wait.. it's thin? Noo! I completely get why you're waiting. If there's another cliffhanger like that then it's gonna be SO hard to wait that long! Let's just hope it's really small font or something! lol

  3. This is on my TBR/ wishlist! :) The cover is pretty.

    1. Yay! I can't wait for it to be released :)
      The cover is so pretty!

  4. Wow, now that is a gorgeous cover. Really stunning.

    1. It really is a beautiful cover! One of my favourites.
