The Dark Rose
Taking place in the 1800's, The Dark Rose is an adventurous story that tells the tale of a teenaged girl named Vanessa that lived in a ruined, ancient British empire called Whitehaven. She lived alone in a cabin after her close friend, Sebastian, went off to war and left her with nobody. On the other hand, her once-beloved sister, Rosie, ruled a much more powerful empire, called the Dark Kingdom, as she was crowned empress. Like once before, the Dark Kingdom was planning on attacking Whitehaven, but were obligated to get the approval of the empress before doing so. Luckily, Rosie refused, as one single thing was holding her back, the rose. How could something so small and delicate declare the peace or destruction of an empire? And how could something so little send Vanessa on the journey of a lifetime, or perhaps, the last journey of her life?
