Here be Dragons

The Barney for best use of a magically evil shrub goes to…

Champion of the Rose by Andrea K Höst

Strictly speaking, its not really evil so much as pursuing its own agenda, and if youve never encountered a rose bush with its own agenda before, its very creepy. It gives the main character some neat abilities, but at a terrible price. This is an original, intelligent and quirky story, with characters who act in sensible, believable ways. And completely gender neutral, which is a rare trick to pull off. A terrific pacy read, which I highly recommend.
