Gr 8 Up—This sequel continues the saga of Anna Arden and the magical creatures she helped release from bondage in Blood Rose Rebellion. Now in hiding in Vienna with her sister Catherine, Anna attempts to settle into life as a courtier. She attends parties, takes walks on the promenade, and even catches the eye of Archduke Franz Joseph. But she can't break away from her past and her desire to free the magical Praetheria, or from her feelings for Gabor. She also can't run from the crime she committed in the name of freedom—the murder of her friend Matyas. She must decide if she will continue to hide or take a stand in front of the Austrian Congress and become her true self—a chimera, or "two-souled." This is a unique blend of fantasy and historical fiction, and fans of both will appreciate the intertwining genres. The narrative utilizes alternating points of view, giving readers a unique perspective on the lives of both main characters (Anna and Matyas). VERDICT A magical tour of mid-19th-century Europe that will leave teens waiting anxiously for the next installment; recommended for fans of alternative history and fantasy.—Corey Hall, Manheim Central Middle School, PA
