Bloodrose is Andrea Cremer’s final book in the Nightshade Trilogy. This book is super fast-paced, soaked in action, and I loved almost every second of it.
Andrea Cremer is a terrific writer. She’s mastered setting the scene without getting bogged down in setting. She knows just where to add a pretty literary phrase. Her world building and plotting–I’m in awe.
This book was a superfast read and I never wanted to put it down.
One of my pet peeves is when readers disagree with author’s ending and want to rewrite them. To me, it’s the author’s world, and I just get to walk through it.
But the ending to this book didn’t leave me completely satisfied. I think the problem for me was that I wanted the character to struggle with the hard choice and actually be forced to make the decision. I don’t want to spoil the ending for anyone else, so I won’t say anymore.
I’m sure in a few days, I’ll understand why this ending was chosen. Because at the end of the day, I do trust the author and I do believe she made the best decision she could for her characters.
I’m glad I invested the time to read this trilogy and I’ll definitely read Ms. Cremer’s other books.
