Book Review: Rosemarked

5 out of 5 stars
This book is about a healer named Zivah and a soldier named Dineas. I really enjoyed this book because it flips back and forth from Zivah’s point of view and Dineas’s point of view. It was really interesting to getting to know both of their thoughts and a deeper look into their emotions.
In my opinion, any book that switches successfully from more than one POV is really fun to read.
I though the second half of the book was better than the first because it is when the action picks up and brings the start of a blossoming romance.
A lot of readers have rated this book 3 out of 5 stars as it doesn’t bring anything new to the table, but I would have to disagree. I really enjoyed the element of amnesia and the dual-personalities of Dineas. I will definitely be reading the second book in the series.
A healer who cannot be healed . . .
When Zivah falls prey to the deadly rose plague, she knows it’s only a matter of time before she fully succumbs. Now she’s destined to live her last days in isolation, cut off from her people and unable to practice her art—until a threat to her village creates a need that only she can fill.
A soldier shattered by war . . .
Broken by torture at the hands of the Amparan Empire, Dineas thirsts for revenge against his captors. Now escaped and reunited with his tribe, he’ll do anything to free them from Amparan rule—even if it means undertaking a plan that risks not only his life but his very self.
Thrust together on a high-stakes mission to spy on the capital, the two couldn’t be more different: Zivah, deeply committed to her vow of healing, and Dineas, yearning for vengeance. But as they grow closer, they must find common ground to protect those they love. And amidst the constant fear of discovery, the two grapple with a mutual attraction that could break both of their carefully guarded hearts.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
