    If you do not think Rose is worth reading, then you must be empty inside. The journey of our heroine, a girl who was once pure to the world has now been thrust into the cruelty of persecution for being who she, and forced to live within a realm which wishes to crush that innocence. It is amazing how much Rose has changed since the last issue, her inexperience now exposing a strength which she never knew existed and which she desperately needs. Who is to say how she will survive, but I cannot wait to find out how Drucilla's actions will shape her into a force which the Queen wishes she never released. Read Full Review

    Overall, I'm really enjoying this journey that Meredith Finch is taking us on. It's great to have a story with not only a strong female protagonist but also a strong female villain as well. There is a lot here that has yet to be explored and I'm looking forward to discovering more about the lore of this world and learning about what drives some of the characters. I'm also keen to see more of Thorne in the future and the role that he has to play. If you're interested in venturing into an exciting new fantasy world, filled with intriguing characters and a compelling story, then do yourself a favour and grab a copy ASAP! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Eliot Cole May 19, 2017

    In all, though, after a quite capable debut, Meredith Finch and crew have given us a great fantasy, female, protagonist to get lost and grow with. I say get in on Rose now, and it's definitely one for the pull list. Read Full Review

    I did enjoy Rose #2 more than the first issue but I'm still not hooked on this series yet. I do want to see Rose become a stronger and better character and actual go on adventures instead of sitting around. I'm hoping now that she's learning about her role as a Guardian that things will pick up and she'll learn to become a warrior that can save her people. If you liked the first issue then you'll probably enjoy this one as well, if you're like and still uncertain about where things are going you may still want to give this issue a read. Or pick it up later down the line and see if things have progressed more. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Levi Remington May 17, 2017

    I hope you have your rose-tinted glasses on for this one, because without the nostalgic love for generic high-fantasy stories you've heard a hundred times before, there's little to admire about the plot of Rose. Though for every misstep in the story (retraced step, rather), there is a heap of Ig Guara's outstanding art to gawk at. This isn't a bad comic, it's just that everything involving the plot and characters feels immediately tired upon introduction. Despite that, the marriage of story and art here is wonderfully done, and it infuses the title with enough energy to make light entertainment for readers not yet jaded by run-of-the-mill genre stories.
