Blood Rose – Danielle Rose

There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.

As one of the only spirit users in her coven, Avah has been chosen to wield The Power, the ultimate weapon against the immortal vampire species witches have been at war with for centuries.

But on the night of her birth rite, Avah’s coven is attacked. Forced to seek refuge among the very beings she’s sworn to kill, Avah vows revenge on those who took her former life from her.

As Avah slowly transitions into a life of blood and war, she realizes everything she’s been told is a lie.

I would like to thank OfTomes for sending me and e-arc of this book very much appreciated!

I haven’t read anything like this before and it was something completely different this is definitely one thing I loved about this! For something that can be so used Danielle Rose managed to put a spin on it and I loved what she did with it. I was turning the pages so fast and I just devoured this book and I want the next one. So when it comes to arc time can I have one? 😂

This book is the chosen one with a little twist and the twist is amazing. The vampire and witches aspect of the book was so intriguing I know we’ve seen the witches and vampires against each other but this was different and the fact that Avah gets turned into a vampire to save her life and she still has witch powers (was that a spoiler? oops if it was.) like that in itself is just such an interesting thing to work with so I really liked that and the different ideas that come from those two groups, especially with the concept of the vampires, get a penalty for turning humans and the fact they have hunters that hunt other bad vampires it’s just an interesting concept and it worked really well with the story.

This story is very fast paced but that was not problematic with the events that were happening in the book it worked very well. It wasn’t too fast although it was fast, you could still get some grounding on what was going off in the book.

Jasik was an interesting character especially as he broke a rule to save Avah and like from the moment he saw her he kind of had a thing for almost immediately and he was very intrigued by her. Their relationship moved very fast including them drinking from each other, the concept of vampires drinking from each other was kind of different in the fact it was even erotic for them not just humans, which is usually the case. I really liked him he was a very easy character to like.

I don’t know whether the author meant this to happen to be mysterious but you really don’t get much of the history of any of the characters including Avah and you don’t really get a base for much of it. As I say I don’t know whether the author meant to that it was annoying at times but for the most part, it really did work. It adds to the story but sometimes it is slightly annoying.

The relationship with Jasik does not overpower the whole book which I was so glad for, sometimes the relationship can overpower the plot but that did not happen here. It was very balanced in what we were shown with their relationship and with her learning this new world she has to navigate a new world which shad had technically been trained to fight and kill them.

Her mother was terrible. Her coven was also terrible. That’s all I have to say on that.

I loved loved loved the strong female representation of Avah and Lillie, I feel like we don’t get enough of it in books and Avah was kick ass the way she began to slay vampires! Just amazing to see females in a good light and then not being constantly shown as weak and whiny. Don’t get me wrong she is shown at some points but that’s within reason like when she is first turned and getting used to being a vampire she kind of freaks so that is completely understandable.

The cliffhanger though! I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?! WHO IS THIS SEBASTIAN?! I don’t want to ruin it so I’m not going to go into detail but I want to know what happens next.
