Goodreads Synopsis:
The Ultimate Sacrifice. 

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 Thoughts:
Bloodrose was such an amazing end to the Nightshade trilogy. I was not expecting it to end the way it did but Andrea certainly did a spectacular job. 

There is no way that I can write this review properly without giving away any spoilers but I loved it to so much that I had to show my support and write something. 

I would have to say that Bloodrose is my favourite story out of the trilogy. This was such an emotiona end and I do not think that I have cried as hard through any book as I did this one. It was so emotionally gripping. 

Now I do have to say that I was a little upset with Andrea ( for those who have read Bloodrose I think you know what I am talking about) But I do have to respect her for throwing in such an amazing twist, one that I definitely did not see coming, even if it hurt just a little bit.

The Nightshade series has got to be on my top ten list for YA series, and while I am sad to see it end, Andrea did a fantastic job.

  1. I couldn’t get past the absurdity of the love triangle, and it has (probably unfairly) irreversibly tainted my view of this book. If this is what I can expect from this author, it would be a total shame, because I love her writing style and the prequel to this trilogy sounds great.(Also, she’s a fellow “Canadian Shield-er” Yay Minnesota! And Wisconsin!) Also, BOO for not having a pretty cover to match the style of the original Nightshade and Wolfsbane covers. I abhor it when publishing companies do crap like that.I am very OCD about my books. I want a series to all be in either paperback/hardcover, and have the covers match.
