The story follows the imaginary life of a 16-year-old nobel British girl in the 1800s whose lack of magical ability makes her an outcast. After she is sent to Hungary to live with her grandmother, she begins to discover that not all she’s been taught about magic and high society is true.The community is invited to attend an open house to celebrate the Blood Rose Rebellion March 29 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Main Street Books in Cedar City. Festivities will include a book signing, photo booth, prizes and book-inspired foodDave Admire, a Cedar City resident, retired judge, and retired Southern Utah University professor of criminal justice, has launched his first novel Terror in Paris. The book follows the story of three professors and twenty students who get caught up in a coordinated terrorist attack in Paris and their struggle for survival.
