A fascinating look into the world of Alpennia (a sort of alt-mittelEurope with magic) from the perspective of a servant. And it really is that perspective, with a *lot* of washing and mending and very little free time. It's fascinating both in the detail and in seeing the events of the first books from such a different point of view--trivial things become important and vice versa.

Roz starts off in a very bad place--thrown out on the streets because she's caught with another female servant--and

‘Floodtide’ by Heather Rose Jones is a historical fiction story, set in a land where magic and mystery has its place. Told from the point of view of a teenage servant girl, it lets the reader see all echelons of society, and how they deal with an impending flood - and the serious health and societal implications it brings. Roz was dismissed from her previous job as a laundry maid after being reported for indulging in indecent acts with another young woman. What looks like the worst thing that co

I received an ARC copy of this book from the Publisher via Netgalley and voluntarily leaving my review.

This was a good read set in world where magic and mystery has its place.

It took me a minute to get into because there was a lot of characters from previous books that haven't read and even though this book is told from the pov of a teenage servant girl name Roz.

Roz was dismissed from her job as a laundry maid because she was to believe to have indecent acts with another

I had the privilege of reading a draft of Floodtide, and I love how Jones is adding layers and complexity to the world of Alpennia. Highly recommended!

This book is an excellent continuation of the wonderful Alpennia series, but is also a great stand alone story in its own right. It’s the same fascinating country with the same type of engaging and well drawn characters. What’s different this time around is that the story is told with a first person viewpoint. That person, Roz, is a young lesbian, who wears her heart on her sleeve, and frequently gets herself in trouble because of it. Because of Roz’s lower station in the city, the reader is int ...more

Floodtide by Heather Rose Jones is the fourth book in the Alpennia series. As with the other three books in the series, Floodtide is set in Ms. Rose’s historical and magical world of Alpennia.

In this tale we meet Roz who has just been fired as the laundry maid without a character reference to help her find a new job. She is now totally alone in the city of Rotenek with nothing to her name but the clothes on her back, and no place to go. This is very dangerous for Roz. A young homeless woman with no protectio
