Publisher's Summary

Myth and fantasy collide in "the most haunting love story," perfect for fans of Maas's A Court of Thorns and Roses and Pocahontas.
Ancient secrets cannot remain buried forever.
Founded two centuries ago by a powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly.
Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.
As we made preparations for Mom's burial, new people began arriving in Rowan, unnervingly handsome and odd people. I begged them to leave, but they stayed because their enemies - my ancestors - were beginning to awaken.

Good Mix Of Myth & Fantasy

Overall I really enjoyed this story especially the mix of myth and fantasy. I did find the lead a bit frustrating with her rash decision making & quick to trust those who should not be trusted. Oh and don;t get me started on the love triangle, they annoy me but thankfully that did not overwhelm the story. Narrator Stephanie Fritz did a wonderful job at bringing the characters to life. I look forward to more from this Author & Narrator

Magical ancestors

If you could sum up Rose Petal Graves in three words, what would they be?

Family, magic, friendship

This was the first.


Any additional comments?

Catori has never really believed her mother's stories of their Gottwa ancestors, but when she has to return home suddenly on her mother's death, she soon finds out there was more truth to it than she ever imagined. She learns she not just simply human, and the warring Hunters and Fae are both very interested in her. She sympathises with both groups at different times, though they are extremely dangerous and both bring her so much grief.
Though Catori is only 19, she seems quite immature for a smart college girl, and the way she deals with people she doesn't like is a bit like a bratty 13 year old. But her relationships with her father and others she cares about, redeem her. She has some very hard decisions coming up.
