Book Review: Rose of the Oath by Hope Ann

Title: Rose of the Oath
Written By: Hope Ann
Genre: Christian Fantasy Romance/Fairy Tale retelling
Recommended Ages: 13 & up


I’ve been wanting to read something by this author for a while and was excited when I got this one for free. I had a bit of time to read, so I decided to do this one. It helps that my favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast. I’m glad I read it.

Characters: .75/1

There were a couple times when the characters felt a little flat, but for the most part, they were well-developed and written with the ease of an experienced author.

Dialogue: 1/1

The dialogue was well written and moved the story line along perfectly.

Plot/Storyline: 1/1

This was a unique twist on the classic fairy tale. On the surface, much of the details were similar, but then there was the oath that Hope Ann introduced. The oath makes the fairy tale much deeper than the tale itself.

Overall Writing Quality: 1/1

The author did a great job writing and editing this book. I enjoyed reading the book.

Un-put-down-ability: .75/1

There were a couple times something confused me and I had to read it over again, but otherwise, I really did not want to put the book down at all. It kept me interested from beginning to end.

Conclusion: 4.5/5

If you are looking for a unique Beauty and the Beast retelling, you should try reading this book. It may be fantasy, but this book didn’t have any magic in it.
