Hello to another Book Spotlight Thursday as we welcome this stunning novel, Secrets of a Rose, by Adina Chiles! Let’s dive into this brand-new series!
Secrets of a Rose (Royal Blood #1)
Publication Date: June 8th, 2022
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publisher: Midnight Tide Publishing
A kingdom built with secrets is bound to unravel.
During the month of Amira, the silver moon emerges, and the kingdom of Zyra comes alive with anticipation for its annual ball. Mellana Goodwick, finally at the rightful age of sixteen, receives her first invitation, but when unexpected events take place, immediate regret sets in. Mellana finds herself caught in a strange storm-casting down green lightning and filling the sky with ear-splitting thunder. To make matters worse, the kingdom comes under attack by Prince Lorian, a man removed from the line of succession for murdering his sister, the future queen, and her newborn child.
After escaping the attack with her best friends, Mellana stumbles upon a box left by a woman named Rose. With the power to see glimpses of the future, Rose warns Mellana of hidden powers the kingdom has covered up and Lorian’s desire to unleash them all. Rose instructs Mellana to gather the sacred article from each of the seven kingdoms before Lorian and his deadly group can gain access to them. Together, the items unlock a barrier that is meant to stay shut.
In Secrets of a Rose, Mellana will discover remarkable abilities that stir around her and some that even rise within. In order to keep what she loves, she must embark on a race against the person who dares to threaten it all.

150 Years Ago
“It is a death sentence you have damned us to. If there was a way to pay this debt with your blood, I would cut you this instant and spill every drop.”
The very thought of her words slice just as viciously had she carried out her threat.
Prince Verren, eldest son of the High Whimsy King, sits slouching over the desk of his study. Some of the last words spoken to him by his wife play on a torturous loop in his head.
He envisions silver locks, the touch like satin sheets between his fingertips gliding down her back. In his mind, he brushes the dimples of her smile, gentle enough to stop a war, but he smirks, knowing she carries a temper that can easily start one.
Despite the beauty of the bustling golden streets just beyond his window and the diamond-dusted buildings that reflect all of Melzy, his heart sits hollow. What he won’t give to find his wife. Blood pools into his knuckles; he knows it’s not at the hands of another but because she wants it this way.
After she ran away, he went straight to the castle’s mixer. Someone capable of crafting a mix powerful enough to extract the pain.
The man had suggested a sleeping mix, for agonizing nights, or even a forgetting mix, so that Verren would never remember what she had done.”
