Rose and the Lost Princess by Holly Webb

Not all magic is used for good...

Rose's whole life has changed in a matter of weeks. She's gone from being a lonely orphan to a magician's apprentice, though she's learned that power comes at a price. Rose's magical abilities blossom, but she's still uneasy about her new powers. Even Rose's friends don't seem to trust her anymore, especially when rumor of dark magic begin to swirl through the city.

Then the country's beloved princess vanishes, and Rose learns she must find the missing girl. Can Rose shatter the power of an evil magician before all is lost?

My Review:

Rose is trying to learn to live with magic with the help of Freddie and Mr. Fountain.  Ross thinks being a magician can be good so she can make money to get out of there but a bad magician is doing terrible things and everyone is afraid of them all; then to make matters even worse the princess is kidnapped and it's up to the three magician's to find her.

I didn't read the first book but I don't think you really need to start from the beginning. This was a great story for the young and the young at heart about good versus evil.  The characters are well written and add their own pizazz to the story.  Rose is a strong girl who knows what she wants and will step up to the task at hand.    The story itself is well written and keeps the reader entertained.  I look forward to my daughter reading this series.
