A Treason of Thorns | Laura Weymouth
3 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
An enchanting, lyrical novel from the acclaimed author of The Light Between Worlds. When her father is convicted of treason, Violet is exiled from her beloved ancestral home, Burleigh House. One of the six great estates of England, its magic once kept her well - enchantment in its bricks and mortar providing secret hiding places, even lighting fires on the coldest nights. However, on her return Violet discovers that the place has gone wild with grief. Vines and briars are crumbling the walls. Magic that once fed the land has turned dark and deadly, twisting blooms into thorns, poisoning livestock and destroying crops. Now Violet must decide if her destiny is set in stone, and how far she will go to save Burleigh - before it destroys everything ... including the boy she loves.

This was an interesting read with sentient houses in an alternative England. The concept was really interesting, especially since I‘d just read Cinders & Sparrows, a mid-grade about a magical house. Vi is a strong lead who cares deeply for those she loves, and I like WYN as her childhood best friend, too. A few parts felt slow, but overall, enjoyed this story.

Quick Blurb: A headstrong girl and an ancient, sentient house, Violet comes back to Burleigh House many years after her father was imprisoned there, to find the House is dying. Can she find the deed and fix it before the King orders her beloved house burnt down?

This was just okay, despite the amazing idea. Once Violet arrivees at the house not much happened for hundreds of pages, and I had to force myself to read it.

"Home. The word tastes like honey and ashes, like hope and regret, and this I know: I would face the devil himself for a chance at getting back to the House I grew up in, and finding out what fate has befallen the one friend I had as a child."
