Published March 6th 2012 by Amber Leaf Publishing
Roses & Thorns, a Rose Trilogy short story, take us through Rose and Christian's whirlwind romance as they build the relationship that will see them through the difficult times that lie ahead.
My rating: 5/5
I had the honor and the pleasure to be a part of the blog tour of the first book in this trilogy: Scent of a White Rose by Tish Thawer, a few months ago. I totally fell in love with the characters, the action, the writing style, the plot (was so awesome, like some special new twist at every turn, couldn't ask for more), the vampires (of course) and more specifically: Christian, who's a handsome gentlemen, sexy, yeah super-hot vampire. Gimme, Gimme! I really liked reading about a new kind of vampire’s legends and where they come from. You know, when you read something about vampires, you want to land in a new world and find out new vampire specie! But the author can't remake everything. I love the fact that these vampires can't go into sunlight. Typical, but in the same time, totally vampiric! I enjoy discovered new myths about them. Tish Thawer gives the reader a brand new turn around about the old school type of vampires and I think it's what I love the most about this series (oh and Christian too...) :P Anyway, Roses and Thorns really push the readers into the deep of the very first meeting/encounter between Me and Christian, Oh sorry I mean Rose and Christian... until the begin of Scent of a White Rose (first book in the Rose Trilogy).
Since I read the first book, I already knew the characters and the author didn't put all her energy to reintroduced Rose and Christian or even the surrounding (thank you), so if you want to start this trilogy, you MUST begin with the first book. Since you may also discover/read about some spoilers from the first book in Roses and Thorns, you really should read them in order. Anyway, where's the fun reading a trilogy in disorder????
Tish Thawer provides a new world around the vampire story and knows how to keep the readers hanging on. I could feel all the anguish from Christian and the fear that Rose may not call him back: OMG I had butterflies in my belly when Christian answered the phone call for the first time! Well for the rest of this review, I would have to give out some spoilers and I hate to do so!
If you're a vampires fan and want to read something fresh about them, you must check this trilogy! For only 1.99 on Kindle, you should give it a try!
