by Laura E. Weymouth
Release Date: September 10th 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
You’re meant to be a Caretaker, Vi, Papa’s voice says in my head. And a Caretaker always puts her House first.
My first thought was to run out with the rolling pin and beat the priest over the head with it, if need be.
Power is a seductive thing, Violet.

Review of A Treason Of Thorns
Review (5 Stars): This book was absolutely amazing and I just couldn’t put it down. Violet and her father are from a long line of caretakers of Great Houses in England. Burleigh House has been in their care and after her dad is punished for trying to free the house from its magical bindings, Vi comes home to repair the house. She has one month to fix the house and harness its power without the magical caretaker key or the house will be burned to the ground. To what extent will Vi go to save the house that she was destined to care for?
I LOVED this book! Vi was a great character and I followed along with her as she tried to piece together where the deed for the Burleigh House was so she could save it. I loved learning about all these magical houses and the power that Vi worked to help heal the Burleigh House’s pain. Wyn was such a mystery to me as to why he stayed with her father when he was banished to the house and why he could help Vi with the power that the house harnessed. Such a magical story and I finished it in one sitting. Can’t wait to read what is next from this talented author.
