|The women of the Empousai family have always had a special
affinity with Roses. Mikki would rather forget about the family secret to their green
fingered success with the Roses drops of their very own blood. Then one day she
accidently conducts a ritual that sees her embracing her true destiny AND to wake up in
the Realm of the Rose.
It is truly a unique view of the old Beauty and the Beast fairy
tale. I enjoyed it because it showed us that no matter what our outside appearance may be
it is whats inside that matter. I like that P. C. Cast also develops the heroine
from the start of the movie where she is a little unsure of herself and by the end of the
book she has become more confident in herself and her abilities.
