From Goodreads:
Now an apprentice magician, Rose is asked to help find a very special missing person
Turning the worn pages of her spell book, Rose can't believe how much her life has changed. Once a poor orphan, she is now an apprentice to the king's chief magician. But when the country's beloved princess vanishes, everything changes. As rumors of dark magic fly through the city, the king asks Rose for help. She must find the missing princess, before all is lost.

Rose and the Lost Princess was as delightful as the the first book, Rose. It had picked up where the first book left off, all without leaving the reader wondering what was, in fact, going on. However, it did seem to drag at the beginning a bit. I was hoping for it to pick up to a faster pace before half way through, but the plot and ending were still quite good. It also left this wide open for the third installment.

Rose and Freddie are left to face yet another evil magician in this second book. One that has the ability to freeze objects and enchant them. And when that leaves Rose to guard the princess, without the knowledge to do so, it brings new meaning to “know your enemy”.

Freddie is slightly more funny and whiny in this book, and Gus is still as forthright as ever. We get to see more of Mr. Fountain in this book and learn that Isabella is starting to grow into her powers, or at least hiding them.

I highly enjoyed this second installment and can't wait to pick up the next one.
