Garden of Thorns by Amber Mitchell
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.
Why I Chose This Book / What I Think So Far:
I'm always on the hunt for new Fantasy novels to fall in love with so when I saw this book in an email about Entangled Teen's spring upcoming releases I decided to go for it. I was a little unsure when I first started reading whether I would like this book or not but now that I'm a couple chapters in I'm getting into the story. Since this is an ARC, I'll give you my full review on the release date, next Tuesday!
