I gave this one a shot because the pitch said it was like Pocahontas meets A Court of Thorns and Roses, but no No it was not And I don t think I would have liked it even if I hadn t seen that misleading hype Basic plot Catori s name means spirit in Hopi, but she s from the Gottwa tribe She gets a mysterious book in the mail about her ancestor Negongwa the leader of the Gottwa Indians in 1812 and his connection to the fae witches Cat believes her recently deceased mother was murdered and a whole [...]
DNF 16% I I just can t guys I was only six chapters in, but I already had way too many issues with the writing style, characters, and direction of this novel In summary Nobody told me this was fae, and that s not my thing There s no sense of setting at all There s so many logistical issues How is the MC in medical school when she s only 19 If there s a huge snowstorm and this guy has to stay with her, how are all of her relatives able to arrive the next day If foul play is suspected in her mothe [...]

This book is a struggle When the author make her characters do things that are so illogical I will spoil the beggining so you can understand The book starts with the death of Catori s mother Nova A few days before the funeral arrives the medical examiner He is hot So I guess that means he can perform the autopsy in the basement of the house and stay there as wellI mean What And Catori will fall for the man who sliced the chest of her dead mother She also wants to be in front of the autopsy Why W [...]

4,5 starsI had never read anything written by Olivia Wildenstein but this book won t be my last, beginning with the second book of this series I love her writing and the tense undertone she s conveyed throughout the story Her plot is solid with new characters and secrets added progressively all helping to make me read page after page.I must confess I was first attracted by the pretty cover I love gorgeous covers and this one fits the role perfectly Then I read the blurb and it seemed right up my [...]
Yeah, this one was a nope for me Just not the right style or story in any way.I won t bother with a long review since I didn t finish Really, the style was just wrong, and I found the opening scenes so odd and so unconvincing.This book probably suffered from coming right after W.R Gingell s Spindle and Laini Taylor s Strange the Dreamer, both of which I LOVED SO MUCH But honestly, I don t think this one was going to be a fit for me anyway.Beautiful cover, though
Rose Petal Graves sounds so promising, but I m so disappointed with it I usually love Fae stories, and I was so excited when I got accepted for this on NetGalley Basically, out protagonist Cat lives in a cemetery, where her ancestors are buried After a casket is dug up, containing rose petals instead of bones, she is thrown into the world of fae, all the while trying to discover the truth about her mother s death It s rather a lot to deal with, what with your ancestors who just so happen to be f [...]
Get ready for some seriously sexy faerie hunters Disclaimer The Gottwas are an invented tribe, loosely inspired by the Ojibwe people I did not want to cause offense to Native Americans by writing about customs that aren t mine.

3.5 Stars I will probably continue to read the next few installments as I see potential in this series However, I may forget about it and that s not a good thing I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Overview Rose Petal Graves is the first installment of The Lost Clan series It begins as Catori arrives back into the small old town of Rowan for her mother s funeral Catori is a descendant from the ancient Gottwa Indian tribe After her mother digs up a coffi [...]
Thank you to the author for sending me an ARC in return for an honest review.3 stars When I started reading this book, I was pretty psyched The concept of faeries and faerie hunters mixed with Native American culture seemed interesting and original However, I found the story to be just pleasant It was not groundbreaking or overly different which is a shame in my opinion So, before I go into the negatives of the novel, I ll try and break down what I liked.At the start of the story, I liked how Ol [...]

I usually love any book that involves fae, so I was very excited to get my hands on this book I thought the fae elements of this book were entertaining I didn t really like this book, but I still found it entertaining, kind of like a reality tv show It wasn t GREAT, but I still found myself continuing to read it.There were a lot of different things going on in this book, which made it kind of hard to follow what was happening Things felt like they were kind of just thrown in the book, and it was [...]
So you know when you are getting ready in the morning and your brain switches to autopilot You re just going through the motions, not really focusing on what you are doing and then can t remember if you locked the door before heading out for the day That s what reading this book felt like for me The story was so convoluted and messy that towards the end, I stopped trying to focus and remember what I read cause I just didn t care enough.There were moments where I felt even Wildenstein was confuse [...]
I received this book via NetGalley in return for an honest review Pre reviewEEEEPPPP I can t wait to start this book I m so excited ReviewFrom the second I saw this book, I loved it Once I started reading it I didn t want to put it down It was such a riveting read and such a roller coaster I thought the characters were really strong and the story line was original I have never read anything like this before in my life I thought Cat was wow I mean really She blew me away I have never been a bigg [...]
The story started when Catori needs to go home because her mother died and according to her father, she died of heart attack while digging up the graves of her ancestors After that, she found nothing inside the coffin her mother took from the grave but just fresh rose petals What s weirder was when new and not familiar faces were coming to their town And believing that her mother didn t die of heart attack will lead her to unlock the truth about Faeries and her ancestors who were Fae hunters.I [...]
Rose Petal Graves is such a wonderful story I loved the characters, the story and the world that Olivia created.Catori is on her way back to her hometown from university to attend her mother s funeral When Catori and the medial examiner view her mother s body, they find that when she died she was opening an ancient grave, but there was no body inside, just rose petals Catori refuses to believe that her mother died of a heart attack, and when a strange book arrives at her front door, with her fam [...]
I received a free copy via Netgalley in an exchange for an honest review DNF 25% I won t rate or review this one officially since I did not even make it to the 50% mark But overall, I am not impressed thus far and I just don t want to spend time reading something I don t particularly like.
I hate taking that much time to finish a book Yes, I ve been busy but still.Other than that, some good things, some less good All in all, I m pretty conflicted and the ending felt abrupt but I m still looking forward to reading the second book.
First off, I have to say I love this cover and have a cover crush on it It is one of the things that drew me to reading this book The book starts off with Catori coming back home from Boston where she has been living Catori came from a small town called Rowan where nothing exciting happened until now Her mother is dead, people say from a heart attack, but Catori knows that something is up as healthy people don t just drop dead the way her mother did It turns out that life for Catori is about to [...]
Olivia Wildenstein s book is an enchanting work that somehow managed to pull plenty of action and romance into one story of mythical proportions If her fabulous, and well written storyline isn t enough to make you fall in love with her, wait until you reach the climatic ending that will leave you drooling for her sequel Wildenstein has a real talent for vibrant and fast paced plot lines, detailed character development and picturesque imagery She s created this fantastic world of magic along with [...]
When I read the first edition, a.k.a the shorter one, the only reason I gave it four stars was because I felt it wasn t long enough But I feel like Mrs Wildenstein has outdone herself with this version I am so much satisfied with of the story and I cannot wait for of the story to unfold I would whole heartedly urge any avid reader of paranormal fantasy to add this to their collection because it is most definitely worth it.
First off I would like to thank Olivia Wildenstein and netgalley for my advanced copy of this MASTERPIECE pun intended if you have read any of my reviews you will know that I am the biggest fan of this author, everything she touches is magic I will be the first to admit that I am not a big fantasy fan nor am I really a YA fan but I loved loved this story Catori is a college student who has a life altering experience after her mother s death Fae fae hunter Or human Who do you trust where does she [...]
So by looking at the cover one would think that Rose Petal Graves would be a really good book, but I ended up being confused throughout the book and ultimately disappointed after I have never read a book that was just about Faes at least I don t think so I ve read so many books it is hard to keep up with Okay, so in the beginning you find out Cat has come back to her hometown because her mother has died from a stroke and first things first she has to pick up her drunk dad from the bar And then i [...]
I first have to admit I was drawn to this book because of the cover and I still think it s gorgeous Secondly, it was tagged as Pocahontas meets A Court of Thorns and Roses and that intrigued me While I admit it did fall flat for me in some aspects, overall it was an entertaining read Catori or Cat returns home from college following her mother s mysterious death She uncovers some information and discovers she is from an ancient Native American line of fae hunters Also, her hometown has suddenly [...]
