    1. 3.5 StarsPrincess Amelia has been pampered and coddled her entire life, treated like a porcelain doll than an actually woman This has led her to live a very comfortable and uncomplicated life Her biggest concerns have been dresses and parties and looking beautiful All that changes with the news of her husband s demise and the discovery of her pregnancy Her father the High King Uorsin wants her child as his Heir, while her Father in Law King Erich has laid claim of her future son as his heir If [...]

    2. 2.5 Stars I rounded up because the last 25% was pretty good My main issue with this one was that for like 75% of the book I didn t really like Amelia at all, and since it s told in first person POV I had to spend a lot of time in her head and it got old quick Luckily by like the 75% she started to mature and I liked her a lot by the end My other issue is this just abruptly ends, it literally feels like the book is unfinished I know the next one probably picks up where this one stops but that on [...]

    3. Amelia has to deal with the death of her husband, to the hand of her sister It s very difficult, but what awaits her isn t easier She is pregnant and her father, the King, and her father in law are fighting to claim her son their heir Or is it a daughter like her sister claims The Tears of the Rose is the second novel in the Twelve Kingdoms series and I while I enjoyed it, I m afraid I preferred the first novel, The Mark of the Tala The main reason is that I loved Andi and Rafe a lot than I lik [...]

    4. NOTE This review contains spoilers from the first book, The Mark of the Tala Please be aware that a major event uncovered at the end of the first book is crucial to the entire plot of The Tears of the Rose, and therefore, is discussed in this review.Picking up almost immediately after the dramatic conclusion of the first book in the Twelve Kingdoms series, The Tears of the Rose opens with Princess Ursula accompanying the body of her deceased brother in law, Prince Hugh, back to his home and preg [...]

    5. The Tears of the Rose is a solid romantic fantasy long as you don t mind disliking the main character for two thirds of the book I just could not like Amelia I read fast in the hope that a nicer Amelia would show up on the next page I enjoyed the last 140 or so pages, as Amelia grew up and showed her true potential I am interested in how Ursula s story will unfold.

    6. Originally posted at Butterfly o Meter Books on Nov 28th 2014 Fluttering Thoughts Worldbuilding The world of The Twelve Kingdoms is seriously awesome, we re talking kingdoms, so kings ans queens and intrigue and let s not forget all the fantasy elements, magic, paranormal beings like shifters so much goodness Characters The thing about The Tears of the Rose is that the main character, Amelia, was one of my least favorite characters from The Mark of the Tala, the first novel in the series Whiny, [...]

    8. You might know by now that Voodoo Bride and I are big fans of Jeffe s work, so it won t come as a surprise we were very happy to get an ARC of The Tears of the Rose.Book one in this series was about Andi, the middle sister of three The Tears of the Rose is about Amelia, the youngest.Now I will confess Amelia didn t really make a good impression on me in the first book Not that she was unlikable, but she came across as a bit shallow and spoiled Amelia being the heroine of this book I expected the [...]

    9. Review originally posted at RabidReads.Amelia is the youngest of the three princesses She was also the most beautiful She is said to be the avatar for the goddess, Glorianna herself She never had a love of politics or for any need to learn to fight She had eyes only for pretty dress and court life She fell in love with her her husband only to lose him less than year into their marriage I don t consider this a spoiler for the first book, since it s in the blurb This is actually where the book sta [...]

    10.

    11. 3.5Nice Fantasy Just a little slow to develop Three sisters a warrior, an invisible middle child, and a spoiled young princess The middle sister s story was told in The Mark of the Tala, introducing readers to Tala and mossbacks The magical kingdom of Annwyn is separate from the Twelve Kingdoms The imbalance is felt throughout this realm The first book revealed a few secrets of a mother s sacrifice The Tears of a the Rose continues with the revered Princess Amelia s story.Renowned for her beauty [...]

    12. Having the most beautiful woman in the Twelve Kingdoms for your son s wife sounds great, until you realize she s the one who will be making the decisions when you re dead As Tears of the Rose begins, Princess Amelia is a pregnant eighteen year old who has just lost her new, and much loved, husband Up to this time she has been your basic teenager Unusually beautiful, she has been spoiled and sheltered and encouraged to focus on balls, gowns, and the adoration of those around her Ami has never tho [...]

    13. The adventure continues This book is about the youngest princess Amelia The spoiled and beautiful one The one who liked to party, who married her prince charming at 16 The one people assumes has no brain cos she is so pretty The one who is told to be an avatar of their Goddess, cos she is so prettyBut that is not now Now she is a widow She is told her husband was killed by her kidnapped sister Who now lives with demons She is told a lot of things And not all things true She is a pawn but slowly [...]

    14. Review featured on books n kissesSo I had a hard time with this story First I never warmed up to Amelia When we met her in the first in the series she was superficial and spoiled and that did not change in this book And while she does seem to change toward the end of the book a bit and she grows up for lack of a better word by then it was too late and I just didn t care I liked Hugh and maybe if he had been involved instead of dying in the first book then we could have enjoyed Amelia but this w [...]

    15. Happily, I discovered Jeffe Kennedy s work several years ago, and she s an auto read author for me THE TEARS OF THE ROSE strikes gold, showcasing the entrancing fantasy world of magic with shapeshifters and demons entwined with the political machinations of corrupt men There is so much wonderfulness here to satisfy my love of romance and fantasy I m eagerly awaiting book three to follow the third sister s story, which I have no doubt will satisfy my continuing craving for the seductive and mysti [...]

    16. I did not finish Tears of the Rose Twelve Kingdoms 2 The first book was really good but the ending sucked I was hoping book 2 would fix it, but nope The book is a downer and depressing me.The heroine s husband is killed in book 1 I was hoping they d bring him back in book 2 and she spends the first 7 chapters crying, throwing up from her pregnancy, trying to kill herself so she can be with her dead husband, pressing roses from her husband s funeral wreath to keep, blaming her sisters for getting [...]

    17. I agree with a lot of the other reviews I ve read on here, Ami is pretty much a pain for the first half of the book Once she got her head out of her butt, I liked her a lot and was a lot invested in her journey I m really anxious to read Ursula s book now and see how everything is going to be resolved.

    18. I am really enjoying this series, the angles of the story and the characters are unlike anything I ve read before I m excited about the direction the story is going and to have a small glimpse into the last characters Definitely looking forward to the next book in the series, I m anxious to know what happens with Ursula and Stella.

    19. Finished this last night Once the heroine grew up and gained some understanding of life and what it means to help and care for others, the story got better I like the world It s a fantasy world with castles, travel by carriages, magic, knights, etc Very nicely done.

    20. DNF The TSTL syndrome of princess Amelia was so off putting I couldn t force myself to continue I m sorry, I rarely meet such an unlikable heroine, so half way through the book I simply had to stop.

    21. Reviewed on The Blogger Girls2.5 starsWhen I finished reading The Mark of the Tala, I couldn t wait to continue the series I loved how intriguing this world was I loved that it revolves around three sisters and their journey to living up to their potential It s interesting to see the politics in this story and how obsessed some people are with killing the Tala and using whatever means possible to make that happen I found the Tala very interesting, though, I loved seeing them in the first book an [...]

    22. This book worked SO MUCH better for me than 1 in the series Maybe it was that I was coming in with a bit background about the characters and world building, but everything flowed better from the start I thought it was interesting that Amelia was having to, for the first time in her life, deal with a REAL problem and grieving for her husband.It was super satisfying to see her develop and come into her own and do so largely on her own She was manipulated at the start by her father, the high pries [...]

    23. Warning Some spoilers for The Mark of the TalaI loved The Mark of the Tala, so it was a no brainer to pick up this book, despite knowing that it would start out under bummer circumstances I honestly wasn t all that into Hugh he was boring , so I was hoping Amelia would be able to move on quickly from his death To be honest, Amelia was my least favorite of the three sisters in this series and her personality was like nails on a chalkboard for at least the first third of this book I almost DNF d, [...]

    24. First offis cover is terrible Absolutely terrible If I hadn t already read books by this author including the first in the series , I d actively avoid this book Usually covers don t make that much of an impression on me, but this one did and not for the good Book Two follows Amelia, the baby sister, in the aftermath of her husband s death and throughout her pregnancy She has to come to terms with what happened when Hugh died, with what her sisters did and did not tell her, and with the mysteriou [...]

    25. Shock, hurt, tears I did not expect Amelia to lose her husband but I understand why She was so much the beautiful, spoiled baby that she needed a shock to grow up and grow up she did I like heroines who are strong and thinking, who made good decision in spite of their shortcomings This book started out a little frustrating for me thinking that Ami was an airhead but it quickly changed when she started to take on her responsibilities and step into her role O wow, she deserves Ash He was scarred a [...]

    26. Honestly I don t remember much about this book I think that she end up having feeling for a guy and doesn t want too but in the end she accepts it and her sister ho she could y recognize any.
