Australian writer of science fiction and fantasy.
Rose and the Lost Princess - Holly Webb The second story about Rose, an orphan become housemaid become magician's apprentice. This time around Rose is struggling with her feet sitting on both the world of servants and her new potential as magician - something not assisted by a rise of anti-magic distrust as a result of the events of the last novel.Again this is a fairly simple story - the plot twists are highly obvious and the anti-magic feeling a little contrived (if your economy depends on alchemical gold, you really really should be working harder to stem such a movement) - but it remains appealing (I like rags to riches stories for a start).
