    jenn bennett is a queen of contemporary, so i was very eager to see what she could do with some historical fantasy, and she does not disappoint. i am so relieved that her signature witty and carefree writing is just as present in this as her other books. it also translates really well into the main characters, which have always been bennetts strong point. the well-developed and entertaining leads, paired with quick and devourable writing, makes f...

    Pure entertainment from start to finish!!!A bit Stalking Jack the Ripper, mixed with A Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, I loved this fast-paced, historical romp with every fiber of my being. Theo and Huck make a great team and following them on their mystery-filled, rescue mission through the rustic Carpathian Mountains was hella enjoyable!Theodora's father is a treasure hunter, hired by a mysterious aristocrat to track down the legendary wa...

    Jenn Bennett is one of my favorite authors ever, so when I saw she was doing a YA fantasy I was so excited! I love seeing authors write different genres even though her YA contemporaries are a-amazing!Theo was awesome! She was strong, emotional, challenging, and admitted when she was right or wrong. Huck was the perfect sidekick—swoony, sweet, protective, funny. Their bickering was the best!The world building was great and we get to explore suc...

    Hey Gents Guide fans — *points aggressively at Lady Rogue.* You’ll like this one.

    I went into this not knowing what it was about. I will absolutely read anything Jenn Bennett puts out. I loved Theo and Huck. She’s smart and tired of being left behind. He’s charming and maybe a little uncertain. Together they have a lifetime of history and a bit of a rocky future. I loved reading them figure things out. There are a few side characters who are delightful, but I won’t get into detail on that. Plot wise, it was a bit of a sl...

    I requested this book for one reason, really, and one reason only : the name next to "author". I'm a big fan of Bennett's contemporaries and I've dabbled in her adult PNR series (which I still have to finish!) so seeing her switch from YA contemporary to YA historical/fantasy didn't concern me. I was excited. I might not have loved SERIOUS MOONLIGHT but I love her writing, her previous books, and had every reason to expect the same of this one.Bu...

    When someone says a book is “like Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue,” I instantly transform into a marshmallow. I have no self-control. But sadly, this book wasn’t marshmallow worthy!!!!!!!Theo is a hilarious, fun heroine and it’s okay that she’s not bisexual even though I thought we’d have the female version of Monty Montague but we can’t always get what we want and that’s okay. Huck, the love interest, is………..a little...
  • Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)
    Oh my goodness I really hope this becomes a series! So darn good. Full review to come.*EDITED TO ADD REVIEW*Is there anything better than a Jenn Bennett book? Why yes there is. A book by Jenn Bennett that is unlike anything that she has every written before. A touch of the magical and mysterious. Romance and even better still, set all in a beautiful mysterious historical setting and time that appeals to my ever love of the genre itself. I never k...
  • Susan's Reviews
    My thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.I love Jenn Bennett: she has such a huge imagination, and I love her quirky writing style. (She tends to have a little gimmick for each story: in this one, her use of word clues in various crossword puzzles was such fun!) This is young adult - borderline new adult - novel delves into the Occult and is set in 1938. I tend not to do paranor...

    3.5Jenn Bennett is one of my favorite contemporary authors. I’ve read all of her books and I sure wasn’t going to miss this one.Here are some of my thoughts:- This was highly entertaining and adventurous. It was also quick and easy to read. I’ve always loved that about Jenn’s writing. Theo and Huck go in a trek across Romania in search of Vlad the Impaler’s cursed ring. and let me say that I need more books with Romanian setting and his...

    I have always wanted to read Jenn Bennett’s contemporaries because many of my fellow bloggers seem to love them but it just never happened. So, when I realized that she is writing a historical fantasy, I found it way more interesting and immediately requested for this advance copy. And that turned out to be a great decision because this was a very fun reading experience.I’m a huge fan of adventure novels, especially where the protagonists are...
  • Amélie Boucher
    Actual rating: 3.5 starsJenn Bennett is a queen of contemporary, and, incidentally, one of my favorite authors, so I was quite looking forward to seeing her dive into historical fantasy. I'm still not sure what I think about this.On one hand, you have two great main characters. Theo and Huck are well developed and have quite the history, which makes their relationship entertaining and interesting to read about. Both of our leads are witty and qui...
  • MoodyJess
    I really enjoyed Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennet. Is it because I don’t normally read this genre and don’t have much to compare it to? Or because it was just that good? Or because I’m a sucker for the supernatural? I had no idea what to expect but in the end I feel like I’ve just watched an extremely entertaining mystery blanketed in dark magic, witches, folklore and more. The writing was so rich and realistic I was completely consumed and unde...

    What a really fun read!The Lady Rogue has been on my mind since I first saw it on GR. I didn't hesitate one bit when I saw this at B&N but I did, however, hesitate to dive into it. Mostly because I didn't have the time to sit down and just enjoy a physical book. Heck, I still don't but I definitely try to make it happen. Not even disappointed in this one because it was so freaking good!Definitely got vibes from other books/series that I've read b...

Will they succeed or die trying? Read on and find out for yourself.This was a pretty good and action-packed read. Be sure to check this book out at your local library and wherever books are sold.
  • Nastassja
    “When life gives you ghosts, make ghost lemonade?” And this quote is a perfect description of this book. It turned upside down my expectations of a dark gothic historical and turned it into a funny and light adventure, which is not a bad thing and actually made me giggle a lot during the book.The Lady Rogue follows the story of a young Theodora Decker - Theo - the daughter of a famous treasure-hunter. Her father goes missing, and finding hers...

    Check out the original review and more on NovelKnight! This book was provided by the publisher (via NetGalley). This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I've decided that I now need a sequel toThe Lady Rogue.This book was the perfect blend of The Mummy movies (the originals with Brendan Fraser, that is) and Kerri Maniscalco'sHunting Prince Dracula. The kind of historical fiction story embedded in legends and curs...

    You can find this review on my blog Shades of Paper. “I’ve yet to hold the devil’s handiwork. Everything evil I’ve found was made by human hands.” Jenn Bennett has become one of my main auto-buy authors, and it’s for a reason. I’m a huge fan of her contemporary stuff, and when I knew she was coming out with an historical mystery, I immediately added it to my TBR, and I have to say after finishing it that I need more of these type ...

    read this review on my blog: here "He said the beauty of travel was that if you never came home for long, you never had to face your problems. There was always another town, another country, another treasure to distract."Pitched as The Last Magician meets Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, Jenn Bennett's latest YA Fantasy novel The Lady Rogue immediately peaked my interest. As is hopefully well-known, The Gentleman's Guide is one of my all tim...

    I must admit I always get excited when I finish a book that isn't too awful but this is more of a three star and we won't talk about it again.The Lady Rogue is about a girl named Theodora whose treasure-hunting father disappears on the job of finding Vlad the Impaler's famous ring. While Theo is stuck in a hotel in Istanbul, her past flame Huck, (and protégé of her father) shows up to tell her he's gone missing and the only clue is in his journ...

    I’ve been looking forward to The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett since the moment I learned about it. I love all of her contemporary romance and adult historical romance so there was no question in my mind that this was going to be right up my alley.This book starts out with a bang of an introduction to Theo, the daughter of an American treasure hunter. I loved Theo – she’s smart, adventurous, resourceful, and willing to do whatever she needs to...

  • Lata
    4.5 stars. A totally fun romp across parts of Turkey and Romania, with a smart, history-, cryptology-, crossword puzzle- and occult-loving heroine, Theodora.This is my first book by Jenn Bennett, and it was so much fun, reminiscent of Indiana Jones, and various other adventure/treasure hunting stories. Except with a terrific young woman as its protagonist, which immediately improves the typical entry in this subgenre. History is a big part of thi...
