Blood Rose Rebellion
Eves’ fantasy debut, the first in a planned trilogy, opens in London in 1847. Europe is ruled by magicians known as Luminates and a spell, the Binding, restricts the use of magic to those with noble blood. Although 16-year-old Anna Arden’s family is part of the Luminate, she is Barren, unable to cast even the simplest of spells. Her only magical power is the ability to break spells. An embarrassment to her family, Anna is banished to Hungary. Here discontent with the Luminate is growing and because of her power to shatter spells, Anna is pressured by the rebels to undo the Binding. She faces a difficult decision: deny her power and cling to the life she’s always wanted, or embrace her talent and change the world forever.
