Gray is honorable at his core, but he's fighting a pretty damning madness - one that's threatening to overtake him. While fighting for his people, against his mother no less, he certainly doesn't need anything more pulling at him. Honor pulls his to rescue Rose, but then he gets something he never bargained for. Rose pulls him, eases him, challenges him as nothing ever before. He's thrilled by this, and scared by the possibility of following a little too closely to his father's footsteps. The line he walks between good and evil is as sharp as a blade, and I was pulling for him to overcome everything and get his happiness throughout the book - even when I sometimes wondered how that'd come to be.
The Realm of Nine is the world that Rose and Gray inhabit. So called because of the Nine species that make up the balance of magic: Fae, Elf, Shifter, Merrow, Sylph, Shadowkin, Goblins, Witches/Revenants, and Humans. I loved how the world was, at the same time, incredibly intricate and detailed, and practical and easy to understand. Everything made sense within the world, I never felt lost on how the magic worked or why, and there's definitely enough there to keep me wanting more. With so many species in the world, I know that Ms. Shane has a lot more up her sleeves for me to learn!
Blood Rose fairly thrums with tension, from beginning to end! I couldn't wait to see how Rose and Gray could work through their incredible difficulties and tasks. And they never let me down. One of the true pleasures of this story was seeing them work as a team. They went from attraction, to lust (oh-so-sexy times!), to love beautifully. It was easy to see why they fell in love with each other, because they fit one another.
Because I usually like to know this, there is some deception (by omission) in this story. While this is usually a hot-button issue for me, I thought it was well done, the reasoning for it was completely understandable, and it was perfectly handled. In fact, I'd say this is how it should be done.
I'm so excited to see where Ms. Shane takes me next in the Realm of Nine. I'm particularly interesting in a certain cousin to Gray - and definitely interested in the mystery that pops up near the end. I've got some ideas and can't wait to see if I end up right!
Highly, highly recommend for those looking for an excellent paranormal romance. This one has everything I look for. Characters you can love and root for, a world you could live in, and tight plotting that keeps you turning pages.
Grayson van Court is the revenant Prince. He leads a faction of revenants that have turned against the Queen and her abhorrent ways. He will do anything to keep the box out of the Queen's deadly grip. When the keeper of the box is captured by the Queen's minions, Gray must race to save her and the world. However, Gray never expected his heart to be awakened by the stunning Rosaline. Rescuing her may be easy but keeping her safe is another story. The Queen has her scent and is determined to dominate the world with the secrets within the box.
Grayson and Rosaline are an unlikely duo but together they may be the only way to stop the Queen. The other leaders in the Realm of Nine are not too keen on Gray and Rose making nice and may attempt to keep them apart. The battle is only just beginning. Can Gray and Rose survive with their hearts and minds in tact?
Riley Shane's Blood Rose is a sublime paranormal romance set in an ingenious world. Ms. Shane got the story started with an intense scene that mesmerized me. I find the premise of Blood Rose to be a fresh and compelling new take on vampire romance. The characters are complex and easy to become enamored with. I cannot wait to read more about all of these people I've become invested in. Gray and Rose share a scorching chemistry. The passion between them is sizzling! I love these two! I also love that Ms. Shane kept surprising me.
There are so many twists and turns in Blood Rose. I truly was not expecting all the things that happened. The action sequences are fast and powerful you will feel like you are a part of the action. One of the things I love about Gray is that he rides the line of good and evil. He is constantly doing battle with himself. Sometimes this can go wrong in a story and become tiring but Ms. Shane manages to turn Gray into an undeniably strong character that you want to cheer on. What comes off exceptionally well in Blood Rose is the feeling that the world truly hinges on the contents of the box that Rose is charged with protecting. I definitely felt the apocalyptic tension that accompanies the box legacy. And the fact that in a world filled with supernatural entities the box is entrusted to a human just increases the palpable suspense in Blood Rose. I can't wait to find out what happens next in the Realm of Nine!
Please note that Blood Rose does feature a m/m, ménage, BDSM and voyeuristic scene.
