Things are tense in Bloodrose and although there is a bit of comedic relief, things are pretty somber. There are definitely some romantic scenes between Calla and Shay--and one that I particularly liked with Ren. But yes, she does make her choice in Bloodrose--but I'll let you learn about that on your own. The ending? Well, I'd say that it was pretty darn perfect. Seriously, I couldn't imagine it ending other way and as usual, the pacing was excellent. Andrea Cremer's writing style continues to keep me enthralled and I found myself getting lost in the story.
In short, Andrea Cremer has done it again and Bloodrose proves to be a thrilling conclusion to the Nightshade trilogy.
