The Rose Daughter Book Review

The Rose Daughter is the seventh book in the Supernatural series by Maria Lewis. I would like to thank Hachette Australia for the review copy.

BLURB

She never meant to be a hero…

In fact, Dreckly Jones has made a point her whole life to be exactly not that. The daughter of a forbidden union between an earth elemental and a selkie, her rare powers have meant she has always had a target on her back.

So Dreckly – a 40-something oyster shucker according to her fake documents, 140-something sprite if you’re going to get all nit-picky about it – has become an expert at many things. Chief amongst them: hiding.

When she meets a determined group of rebels who desperately need her help, she finds herself wanting to stick her neck out for the first time in a long while. Yet is she ready to be noticed? Is Dreckly willing to use her powers to stand up when it could cost her everything?

REVIEW

The Roe Daughter is an urban fantasy novel and I love the world that Maria has created and the characters that live within the world. 

I liked the world in which the story is set with an interesting mix of supernaturals who live alongside, but hidden, from most of humanity. Lewis succinctly explains the history and politics, and while it’s obvious there are links to story and characters from previous books, they don’t have any notable impact on this story.

I’m definitely intrigued to read the other books in the Supernatural Sisters world.

5/5 stars
