When Cat’s mother passes away suddenly she rushes home to the small town of Rowan for the services. She’s sure that her mother was in good health and things just don’t seem right with her passing although her father said she had suffered a stroke after digging up an ancient grave. Cat finds the ancient coffin is full of rose petals leading her into an investigation and discovering secrets about her family and a world that she never knew of.
Rose Petal Graves was a fairly short read that when done I’d have to say my biggest complaint is that it ended. This first book of the Lost Clan series introduces us to a world of magic, faeries, hunters, and ancient rituals. Full of surprising fun it was one that had me turning the pages to see what would come next.
Cat was a likable character that stumbles into a mystery that she’s determined to solve. Finding herself involved in things she’d only imagined and learning more about who her family is over the course of the read she needs to find out just who she can trust. With a few surprises in store it definitely had me engaged the entire time.
Overall, great start to a new series will be looking forward to reading the next.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
