Rosemarked (Rosemarked #1)Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love a plague novel, I just do. Rosemarked has all the makings of a great iteration of the genre, but fell short for me.

The beginning held great promise, with our protagonist enduring excruciating pain and evidencing immense bravery to become a Healer. But she never gets to push herself that far again. Instead, the middle of the story becomes predictable, with a pattern that repeats over and over (not further described to avoid spoilers) to the point where I just wanted to skim ahead.

I may pick up the second novel in this series because it did hold such promise and I want to hear the end of Dineas and Zivah's stories.
