The Rose Throne by Mette Ivie Harrison

The Rose Throne by Mette Ivie Harrison (Egmont) gave me a lot to think about. It follows the lives of two princesses in what could be called rival kingdoms. Both are of an age where they’re expected to take on their royal duties and marry for strategy, and both has to push against the boundaries of what girls are allowed to do. What gives The Rose Throne an extra twist is that there are two kinds of magic—one that’s the province of women, and one the province of men. To have the “wrong” magic can be a death sentence…

What makes this book tick:

  • Interesting gender-related magic
  • …that gets deconstructed
  • Romance
  • High-level politics
