Violet Made Of Thorns Pdf Book is a Romantic Fantasy novel By Gina Chen.
Violet Made of Thorns Summary
Violet is a prophet and a liar, influencing the royal court with her cleverly phrased—and not always true—divinations. Honesty is for suckers, like the oh-so-not charming Prince Cyrus, who plans to strip Violet of her official role once he’s crowned at the end of the summer—unless Violet does something about it.
But when the king asks her to falsely prophesy Cyrus’s love story for an upcoming ball, Violet awakens a dreaded curse, one that will end in either damnation or salvation for the kingdom—all depending on the prince’s choice of future bride. Violet faces her own choice: Seize an opportunity to gain control of her own destiny, no matter the cost, or give in to the ill-fated attraction that’s growing between her and Cyrus.
Violet’s wits may protect her in the cutthroat court, but they can’t change her fate. And as the boundary between hatred and love grows ever thinner with the prince, Violet must untangle a wicked web of deceit in order to save herself and the kingdom—or doom them all.

Actual star rating is more of a 4.25-4.5 and I think the story will only get stronger in the books to come. I’m really looking forward to seeing more and how this story will unfold in it’s entirety.
I know fairytales and especially their retellings are a dime a dozen but also oddly a very popular trope in books right now. I read the ones that sound promising to me. I cannot tell if this is meant to be a retelling but it’s moot regardless. Because this was FRESH. This felt unlike any other fairytale I have read before and I loved it. Even the author’s note before the story I loved because after reading it, I just had a feeling this was going to be something new and different. Allow me to attempt to explain.
You already know this story is about a morally gray witch. We typically get powerful or evil or sugary sweet witches. Not Violet. She’s something different and you’re going to know it because she’s going to tell you who she is and then she’s going to back it up with her actions. Violet was just a small girl, living on the streets, when she dreamed of a boy and his death. She didn’t know what to make of it and ends up saving the boy from his impending death. Turns out, the girl was a witch. A Seer. The boy, grateful and also not just a boy, brought the girl to his father, the king. Now the girl had a home at the palace, foretelling futures for the king and his kingdom. Violet was quite good at currying favor by spinning tales for the king. Her and the prince grew to have disdain for one another. Because the prince also had a curse hanging over his head. His life was not meant to be spared and now the Fates are meddling. The prince must marry if there is any hope of breaking the curse. This is the part where most of you think you know what happens next. What always happens next. You’re wrong.
This one is full of political intrigue. I’d say this reads as very mature YA bordering on youngish new adult also. It is very plot driven but our characters are all very fleshed out and distinctive. The author did a phenomenal job of nailing each and every character. Then there’s my favorite part about this particular story, the twists! There were more than a few things that I never saw coming. Which is sort of hard to do with me as long as they aren’t out of left field. These are not. The twists make sense and fuels your need to keep reading because you’ve just realized, you have no idea what is going to happen next. I’ll be honest. I had a theory early on and I’m thinking to myself, even if I figured it out this early, I am still entertained and I bet others won’t figure this out this early also. I didn’t have it figured out. Not even close. I mean, my theory would have been cool too but this isn’t my story and I now completely trust this author to just take me on whatever journey this is. AND THIS IS A DEBUT! But I have a feeling Gina Chen will be gracing my bookshelves for years and books to come. This was just really amazing storytelling. I’m left just even more impressed because voracious readers feel like they’ve heard all the fairytales and there is no more original spins on them but Gina Chen entered the chat and said, hold up. If you’re already a fan of fairytales then you’re going to want to pick this one up and if you’re just looking to be highly entertained then you’re going to want to pick this one up. I know I’ll be waiting to see where this goes next.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!
Reviewed in the United States on July 31, 2022
Wow, this book was a total surprise how completely fantastic it was! I expected the story to feel kind of overdone and following the typical fantasy/romance tropes. I was so wrong!
The story is incredibly fresh and remained unexpected throughout. It centers on Violet- a Seer in the kingdom. She is cynical, brash, and without a clear inner compass. Even though I found myself liking her, she was depicted so well as being unfinished, and you don’t know which way she is going. The story is intriguing, and doesn’t follow how you think it will necessarily go. The magic in the book is clever, and it pulls in some fairy tale elements without feeling to on the nose. I feel like a lot happened throughout the story, and the prophecies were well created with detail and mystery.
A great fantasy book. Fun read. I’m looking forward to the next im the series and seeing where this is going.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Captivating Enemies to Lovers Fantasy
Reviewed in the United States on August 7, 2022
Gina Chen’s debut fantasy is a richly imagined world of seers, curses, and princes that’s rich with fairytale vibes.
Violet, a prickly orphan was rescued from a life as a street urchin when she saved the royal heir, Prince Cyrus, from death. In thanks, the king makes Violet his official seer. But the position comes with a price – the king expects Violet to use her visions to his benefit – twisting the readings she gives the court to further his agenda.
This puts Violet in opposition to the unfairly gorgeous Prince Cyrus who has loftier plans for when he ascends to the throne. Even worse, he’s threatened to replace her as royal seer. And then there’s the curse- Cyrus needs to get married or Bad Things Will Happen. And then there’s the undeniable attraction between Cyrus and Violet – inconvenient, even dangerous.
This is a lush richly imagined world full of complex characters and magical mysteries. I loved how unapologetically prickly and cranky Violet is. Even tho she’s a seer, she doesn’t have all of the answers and is caught between trying to find a way through the intrigue and hoping her country can avoid war and she can keep her place. Violet’s emotional turmoil is so well depicted that you feel it too.
She’s attracted to Cyrus but you can tell it rankles that he’s the golden boy, popular and sought after. I love a morally grey MC. Violet’s struggles are so well written, you can feel how hard she’s trying to thread an impossible needle – keeping the kong and court happy while not disappointing Cyrus even when those things are diametrically opposed.
The secondary characters are well developed – I wanted to know more about them and hope we get more of their stories in future books. As a fairytale lover, I loved the callouts to fairytales from fairy-created ball gowns to wickedly enchanted horned beastmen.
