A new adult paranormal romance.
A black Rose dies...
Now it's time to run...
The one I love lost... oh God, what have I done?

~ ROSE ~
I'm Rose Reynolds.
I’m now a vampire and everyone's afraid of me.
My blonde hair has drifted to black,
indicating just how "bad" I've become.
Christian swears he can save me....
... but what if I don't want to be saved?
~ CHRISTIAN ~
I'm Christian and I’m still in love with Rose.
She’s now a vampire, which is not a good thing.
She turned out darker than I could've ever imagined.
I know I can save her. I have to....
.... because my very existence depends on it.

YAY, finally, the last book from The Rose Trilogy by Tish Thawer is here and I had the chance to read and review it! I really fell in love with the two first books and the novella, so I was eager to learn how this story would end!
I loved to read about Meredith and Jemery kind of life now that Rose wasn't in the picture anymore. The action was, as usual, non-stop and really gripping and the best part was about Rose.
It was awesome to read about Rose' transformation into an hybrid. It was dark, powerful and dangerous. The mystery surrounding her transformation and wondering what she will become was well builded. Her life had only one purpose now and it was feeding and destroy the ones that caused her pain.
Meredith got a bit on my nerves but I think it was on purpose. She the ''bad guy'' and even if her actions/behaviour seems to make sens from her point of view (for the greater good of her race), I think she deserve everything that happened to her. She was a total bitch!
Christian's feelings were so intense toward Rose and what is happening to her. He thought he took the right decision but after what Rose has become, doubts is lurking in the back of his mind. Poor Christian, always looking for the best for his love, to make her happy and everything seems so difficult and far away!
Unfortunatly there was a point that bother me: What I liked the most in the first books was the growing relation between Rose and Christian. In the third book, the emphasis was more on Christian and Loraine (Rose mother) and Meredith' campaign. Both were interesting but the main subject in this trilogy was the relation between Rose and Christian, plus, the history surrounding vampires, demons and their rivality. I was left unsatisfied on Rose and Christian part.
Even if I would have loved to read more about Rose and Christian together, the storyline was enough gripping and hold me hostage and to continu reading!
The final step in The Rose Trilogy is a must if you have started to read the first books or if you are looking for a YA/Adult paranormal romance with vampires and demons!
