The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett | YA Book Review by Mara Hubl.
Theo’s usual treasure hunting starts and ends with waiting for her father in whatever hotel room they happen to be staying in. She never gets to go on adventures with him and she’s getting sick of not being included. However, it seems that this time, her father needs saving.
"With enemies-to-lovers, slow burn, and forbidden love, this novel is so many great things wrapped into one." - #bookreview #theladyrogue
Reluctantly paired with Huck, her former best friend and lover, she sets out to find the cursed ring of Vlad the Impaler (also known as Dracula) and uncover hidden secrets. Bad luck and murder seem to follow them everywhere, as the mystery of her father and Dracula’s cursed ring unravel.
With enemies-to-lovers, slow burn, and forbidden love, this novel is so many great things wrapped into one. Set in 1937, this novel is well written and has many tropes without overdoing the romance. Theo’s bravery, intelligence and will to fight for herself while being unapologetic about her behaviour is very refreshing. I love the strength of her character, and I desperately want to read more of her. Huck, the love interest, was also complex and developed. I couldn’t help but want more back story on their past.
This is a must-read for fans of historical fiction and Dracula stories. I also enjoyed the dark magic and fantasy elements that brought the story to life. With mystery and treasure hunting, this action-filled plot line picks you up from the beginning and takes you on a wild adventure! I highly recommend this 4.5/5 star novel from Jenn Bennett!
