Random Ramblings from Rose

Rose is a Summer fairy from the Fairy Rose Chronicles (Part of the Frost Series), and from the Bitter Frost Series. She started out as a Harvester fairy apprentice, but eventually became an alchemist, thanks to her friend and love interest Alistair, the heir to the neutral territory of Autumn Springs.  

  1. What is the Fairy Rose Chronicles?

Rose:  It is a series of books  about Feyland, from a young Summer fey’s perspective – me!  But it’s me at 12/13 years old when I had to go through apprenticeship.  For me, it was either become a harvester fairy like my friends or a knight like my brother Rodney or an alchemist, which is what I really wanted.  The Fairy Rose Chronicles is more fairy tale and fantasy because it’s written during the early 2000s and had more of that, rather than the dark urban fantasy associated with fey books later on.  Bitter Frost is the series that takes place 5 years after the Fairy Rose Chronicles, and is because a human girl from Oregon, her name is Breena, is found and returned back to Feyland.  Little does she know, she is the lost heir to Feyland.

  1.  What is your role in the Frost Series?

Rose:   Rodney is with Shasta, the Winter Princess, and because of his association with Breena, she asked me to become an alchemist at her Summer Palace.  It turns out she and I have a few things in common, too (Frost Fire and Spring Frost reveals this). 

  1. What is a Harvester fairy?

Rose:   The ones in charge of planting and growing  food for all of Feyland.  Harvester fey tend to be closer to nature, and we have an ability to communicate and sense things with animals and animal-like creatures of the fey.

  1. Do you have a love interest in the series?

Rose:  Yes – Alistair from the Autumn Springs and I met when he visited the Summer Kingdom for his Alchemists apprenticeship (The Fairy Rose is the book that shows all this), and we really hit it off.  He’s a very swoon-worthy guy, not just his looks, but with the way he makes me feel like I’m the center of his universe.  But in the Bitter Frost Series, it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, and I have pretty much given up hope of a real relationship with him because of what his uncle wants for him. Alistair is to become the heir of the Autumn Springs, and I’m not royalty.  But there’s another guy I really like, whose presence always makes me blush.  All the women in Feyland have a crush on him, but he has eyes only for one woman…
Ah… it’s complicated.

  1. In Spring Frost, you play a big role.  What happens in Spring Frost, the 7th Book in the Bitter Frost Series of the Frost Series?

Rose:  After finding out about my destiny in Frost Fire (Book 6), it turns out Breena and I share a common bond. We need each other to defeat the evil that invades Feyland.

  1. Thank you Rose, anymore random things you want to add?

Rose:  Yes, the Book of Faeyore plays a significant role in Spring Frost, too.  Breena needs it like she needs me.  Spring Frost has a lot of reveals.  It’s one of my favorite books in the series.
