The women of the Empousai family have always had a special affinity with Roses. Mikki would rather forget about the family secret to their green fingered success with the Roses – drops of their very own blood. Then one day she accidently conducts a ritual that sees her embracing her true destiny AND to wake up in the Realm of the Rose.

It is truly a unique view of the old Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. I enjoyed it because it showed us that no matter what our outside appearance may be it is what’s inside that matter. I like that P. C. Cast also develops the heroine from the start of the movie where she is a little unsure of herself and by the end of the book she has become more confident in herself and her abilities.
