Holly Webb's hit middle-grade fantasy series are the perfect books for 11 and 12 year-old girls beginning to realize their own power and potential-and who might just still believe in magic...

In this second volume, the spunky young magician Rose returns to battle the forces of darkness and save the country's beloved Princess. Set in 19th century England, this magical adventure offers a rich sense of history and a strong, independent heroine young readers can really root for. Rose is perfect for "fans of princesses, magic, fantasy, and mystery" (School Library Journal).

Not all magic is used for good... Rose's whole life has changed in a matter of weeks. Once a lonely orphan, now she's an apprentice to the King's chief magician! But as Rose's magical abilities blossom, she's still uneasy about her new powers-and learns the hard way that power often comes at a price. 
Whenthe Princess vanishes, rumors of dark magic fly through the city, casting doubt and suspicion on everyone with magical powers. Even Rose's friends don't seem to trust her anymore.

Now Rose must find the missing girl. Can she shatter the power of an evil magician before all is lost?

Not bad, but I do wish Rose weren't still so .. feeble, to use the word that Isabella uses to describe her.
And Mr. Fountain is supposed to be a great magician but just as in the first book, he proves himself useless. Makes it sort of ridiculous.

This fun series continues with this story about Rose assisting Mr. Fountain her employer (she's a maid) AND her master (she's also a magical apprentice) in trying to protect the realm's beloved Princess Jane.

Love Rose and her practical down to earth self juxtaposed with her powerful and mostly untaught magic.

And I think Holly Webb has introduced a villain that will hold us in good stead for several books!

Can't wait to read the next one!
