    You cannot help but smile as this issue ends: Rose has gained in confidence, but at the same time, she has to acknowledge her own lack of strength, knowing she can do nothing without Thorne or her companions. This is the truest power of a hero " not being afraid of admitting their own weaknesses, but also recognizing she has friends willing to help her overcome those flaws, only to become stronger. Now that Guardian and khat have reunited, there can only greater challenges ahead, and therefore " ever more epic tales waiting for us on the bright horizon. Read Full Review

    Overall, I found this to be a gripping and engaging issue of Rose, with the tension quickly building as war is on the horizon. Rose and Thorne are together, but they need to find a way back to the rebels before it's too late, so I'm looking forward to seeing how they will overcome this obstacle. I'm also mighty curious to see what Drucilla has planned for this rebellion, as I'm sure it's something brutal and depraved"and I wouldn't expect any less from the vile despot. Read Full Review

    Meredith Finch loves to leave us on cliffhangers and this issue is no exception. She always does it in a tactical way. But damnit. I just want to know what happens next! Read Full Review

    Rose #5 is yet another entertaining piece of work from the creative team, with this fantasy world becoming more interesting with each passing issue. Seeing our Guardian struggle to stay alive, just as she's found her Khatz, this latest instalment certainly doesn't skimp on the action, with there being some dramatic moments along the way.

    Though Rose #5 embraces the tropes of the fantasy genre that could make the story beats and relationships come across as familiar, it's all executed so well that you're too busy enjoying the issue to mind. Rose #5 is another great example of a solidly enjoyable fantasy-adventure, executed by a creative team dedicated to delivering engaging characters in a fast-paced story. Read Full Review

    Rose #5 is a lovely read and will keep you coming back for more. There is plenty of action with sword fights with plenty of drama and world building as well. Read Full Review

    I'm beginning to think this book isn't my cup of tea. It definitely has some positives, Meredith is a good writer, but it fails to do anything new or fresh with it's concept thus far.
