About Revenge of Queen Rose

Middle-grade, 273 pages, magical adventure

Revenge of Queen Rose is the second book two in The Lucky Diamond Series. 

Book on Amazon (

“Supposing for a moment that by sheer luck you stumbled on to one of the three gates of the city, you would not be able to open it. Even if you found out the password for one, you would still have to escape from Fang.”

“Who’s Fang?” Though Alan had a sinking feeling he knew the answer already.

The yellow eyes blinked at him. “Fang is the great snake encircling the city and eating all those who attempt to leave.”

The Rock of Diamonds has been attacked, the Diamonds sealed inside, and Susan and Vicky have disappeared. Everything points to Queen Rose instigating the attack, but how can this be the case, when she has been banished from Nivram for a thousand years?

Twins Cathy and Alan must travel to Thule in search of answers in this action-packed exciting sequel to The Lucky Diamond.

“The Lucky Diamond is a story which leaves adults and children enthralled. It has a plot which is difficult to leave. Once you start the story, you feel the need to finish it  as soon as possible. The plot is engrossing, there are severe twists to the story and lots of sub plots which makes one very curious about what will happen next.”

Antoinette Schembri, Berryreviewer, about the first book in The Lucky Diamond series

My Review:

The Lucky Diamond is the first book in the series so I will start with a review before moving on to Revenge of Queen Rose.

Yvonne, Susan, Vicky, Cathy and Alan are forced into hiding when their Uncle Matt is banished from Lowdar.

Five Years later they come across a Diamond, but this is not a normal precious stone. This Diamond is called Lucky, she is the princess of the Ancient Order of Diamonds and is far away from home.

Lucky leads them on a mission to assist her in her journey back home. With Lucky’s enemy Queen Rose hunting Lucky down along the way. What follows is many dangerous adventures and friends made along the way.

This is a sweet fantasy story with plenty of fun and adventure.

It takes you into a magical world where anything is possible.

The Children show how working together helps them in their mission and it is lovely to see.

Overall, a sweet and magical children’s fantasy chapter book.

I received a review copy of ‘Revenge of Queen Rose’ by Valinora Troy from Blackberry Book Tours in return for my honest review as part of the blog tour.

Revenge of Queen Rose is the second book in this Children’s fantasy chapter book series.

It follows on from the first book, and the Children are settling into their new home.

Suddenly Susan disappears and the Diamonds are trapped in their cave caused by a mysterious spell.

With the Diamonds unable to help it is left to the remaining children not trapped to try and find a way to save the day.

Who is behind the spell? Can the spell be broken?

Once again this is a very magical and action-packed story with plenty of adventure.

There are many new characters introduced, some friendly and others not so much.

The Children discover more about their magical gifts in this part of the series and continue to work as a team to try and save the Diamonds from the Queens Revenge.

Overall, a magical, adventure and action-packed fantasy children’s picture book.

My Rating:
