Bad Romance:Mention of Lord Rupert taking a servant to bed and another Lord getting a servant pregnant, marrying her and then divorcing her.
Violence:Some beating up/fist fights, a few deaths, an almost hanging, injuries. Moncore, the evil villain after Lord Hamlin's betrothed tries to hurt Rose and somewhat poisons her.
Time Period: 1386.
What I Thought:Great story, style of writing(I love the fairy tale feeling, it is actually a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. And Melanie really did well with the retelling!) and the plot was great even though you could guess some parts, it wasn't too easy. The characters where nice and solid too. I really liked The Healer,Geruscha, Rose and Hamlin(he is also called Wilhelm). It was a great book!
Rating & Age:5 stars. 13/14 up.
