Goodreads Summary:

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 Rating of this Book – 5 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

I just wanted to howl at the end of Bloodrose. This final chapter of the Nightshade series was awesome and empowering. The characters grew so much in this novel. I applaud Calla’s strength and leadership. How she took charge in a time of war was amazing and complete turnaround to the Calla that first began this epic journey. Even Ren changed significantly, in my opinion, from the Guardian he was in first novel. And Shay, as always, is my main man! He became the alpha Calla truly needed: an equal and a partner.

Yet the end was bittersweet. In my opinion, it’s still a good ending to the series. But I think it took things a little too far, especially when the character’s work seem to unravel a bit in the epilogue. Also after reading it I believe that the author probably should have focused the series in the present tense instead of in the past tense to fit the ending she designed.

Overall, one of best series I have read and I can’t wait to see what Andrea Cremer will create next.
