Review and Recommendation:
This is the last book in the Rosewood Chronicles series. And it has been a great ending. It is an exciting and gripping tale. I took part in a blog tour for the first and the last book of this series. And as I liked it that much, I read all the books in-between too. But to be honest this last book is my favorite of the series. I am not the target group this book is aimed at but I still enjoyed it immensely. Things finally get clear here in this last installment and we finally find out who is responsible for everything. I had my suspicions before as they were hinted at in the other books but it was still exciting to read about it all. Connie Glynn managed to create really lovable characters. I am still dream Jamie through and through and I can understand why everyone likes Lottie so much. Ellie is a more difficult character for me but she is still very well written and her troubles are understandable. I especially liked the prologue and I can highly recommend reading that book to young readers as it is overall a ver nice and modern story, despite the fairytale allusions.
Information on the author
Connie Glynn has always loved writing and wrote her first story when she was six, with her mum at a typewriter acting as her scribe. She had a love for performing stories from a young age and attended Guildhall drama classes as a teenager. This passion for stories has never left her, and Connie recently finished a degree in film theory. It was at university that Connie started her hugely successful YouTube channel Noodlerella (named after her favourite food and favourite Disney princess). After five years of publicly documenting her life and hobbies to an audience of 900,000 subscribers on YouTube, Connie closed the book on the Noodlerella project in a bid for more privacy and to pursue her original passions in the performing arts. Connie now writes music and fiction full- time. Follow Connie on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr @ConnieGlynn
