Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer is the third installment of the Nightshade. I like the previous two books, Nightshade and Wolfsbane. I can’t wait to read the final book to see how it ends and who Calla will end up with. But I was afraid to read the third book because I could guess who Calla will end up with and I know that she will not be with the person I’m rooting for.
In Bloodrose, Calla rescued Ren and the plot continues as the guardians find their way to escape the Keeper once and for all. There are romances along the way, mostly among Shay-Calla-Ren. I thought that the book’s pace was a bit quicker. First, there’s rescuing Ren. Then, the guardian and searcher went on various quests to search for swords and there’s the battle with the Keepers. I feel that a lot of things were cramped into this book. But still, Bloodrose was as good as the first two books. I enjoyed this book even though I didn’t really like what happened to Ren. The ending surprised me. I didn’t see that that will happen. It was a sad, but beautiful ending. I guess, Calla and the pack got their happy ending. Just not the happy ending I thought they were going to get.
