Review * Blog Tour* Wicked Rose by Madalynn Davis
Publication Date: August 2, 2012
Still reeling from her father's murder, sixteen-year-old Noelle Hart returns to Whisper Preparatory Academy, an exclusive private boarding school in the sleepy town of Whisper, Connecticut. She tries to move on with her life, but things get off to a rocky start. Arguing with friends, dodging the overbearing Headmaster, and staying out of her nemesis' line of fire are almost her undoing.
Until she meets Gabriel Merriweather.
Over night, Noelle's luck takes a turn for the better. For the first time in her life, Noelle is the girl that every other girl at school wants to be. Once and for all, Noelle is able to step out of her older, perfect sister's shadow and be the center of attention. At last, her world is perfect.
But, all good things must come to an end.
When one of her friends is brutally murdered, Noelle becomes the prime suspect. Noelle's world is turned upside down when she learns that a secret sisterhood known as the Hive may be responsible for her friend's death and others. If Noelle and Gabriel cannot fight their way through the labyrinth of lies and secrets surrounding the Hive, then she may be next.
Rating 3 STARS*** I'm not sure how rate this book- I was torn..... Great story line which has me interested in book 2- However there were a lot of editing problems within the story. This is a good read was an interesting story line, but it seemed to fall a little flat for me. This story started off strong and kinda sizzled out. I loved the characters and am thinking book two should pick up. There were a couple issues that bothered me one being overuse of the same words. (Clam it- was one) With that being said I'm still going to give book 2 a try and see what direction this story goes in because it has major potential.
