Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer Review

Bloodrose (Nightshade #3)


Calla has always welcomed war. But now that the final battle is upon her, there’s more at stake than fighting. There’s saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay’s wrath. There’s keeping Ansel safe, even if he’s been branded a traitor. There’s proving herself as the pack’s alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers’ magic once and for all. And then there’s deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is.

In the final installment of the Nightshade trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Andrea Cremer creates a novel with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat until its final pages. A dynamic end to this breathtaking trilogy.

 My point of view about the series (in a flash) NO SPOILERS

Okay from the very first moment I read Nightshade I fell in love with the Guardians and their story. I am not going to lie I was Team Shay throughout the first book. I loved how Calla was strong and fierce as well as the fact she was an Alpha. How amazing is that! A female character that is strong. This is a true example for women any age. I recommended the book to a friend at work and since then we have been truly obsessed. Watching every book 2 & 3 launch and reading the reviews prior to getting our hands on them.

With Wolfsbane I found myself loving Ren as a male character more than Shay. Ren was strong, and alpha and he was sure of what he wanted and how he loved Calla. A mans man. Shay on the other hand was a boy who was just finding out what he was and what his destiny would be. Once again Calla was strong character balancing life and love. The relationship with her brother took me back home and her friends where ahhhh inspiring.

Andrea Cremer is a genius. She has grown as an author throughout the series. Bloodrose is the best book of the series by far. I have cried and laughed. I read the book int two days staying up at night after the kids and husband went to bed. Yes, I'll admit it I have neglected my family for the book. They'll survive!

Bloodrose is a box of surprises you will never expect whats next.  Reading this book was like watching a movie. The descriptions of the battles, adventures and love scenes where amazingly well written.  Trust me when Andrea said no one expected the ending, she was right.  Took me completely by surprise.  I have been so emotionally invested in this series that my heart ached, my pulse hiked and I wanted to scream. 

I love the way the series ends, it leaves a lot for our imagination and who knows maybe more will come in the future. I also fell  in love with a new character YES! Team Connor. I found myself laughing at his many jokes, I wonder who inspired Andrea for this character.

So after obsessing over tweets about the book and reviews to find out what happens I can honestly say you won't be disappointing. It's great writing, a rich story with hopes of imagination.

I give Bloodrose 5 hearts!!!!
