2022 Book Review: Revenge of Queen Rose

Revenge of Queen Rose by Valinora Troy

MG Fantasy, 2022 by Disresponsible Nodpots, 234 Pages

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Some slower parts. Nothing extreme, but there are parts that move slower than others. 
  • Paul’s chapters. They’re not particularly my favorite, although they throw back to the first book. I probably could’ve done without his portions altogether. 
  • Not a lot of Queen Rose, especially considering the title. Of course if you’re not a villain fan this likely won’t bother you at all. 

What I Did Like:

  • Great characters. Not only are my favorites from the first book back, there’s a new character I adored. Everyone has flaws and strengths, everyone works together well, and not everyone is what they seem. 
  • Adventure. Middle grade fantasy stories should be full of adventure and this one delivers. The adventure felt realistic and plausible in the best ways. 
  • Magical items, again. As it was last time, this one makes cool use of some magical items. I expected them to be the same items used in the same ways. I was pleased to find it’s not all just the same! There’s new items and new uses. Plus the little hint of what could be coming in book 3 is EXCITING. 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Middle grade readers who like adventure, action, and a little magic. 

My Rating: 4 Stars. 

  • If you’re a fantasy fan, this is a great second book!
