Blood Rose (Blood Books Book 1)
There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.
Avah Taylor has been given a death sentence: as one of the only spirit users in her coven, Avah has been chosen to wield The Power, the ultimate weapon against the immortal vampire species witches have been at war with for centuries. The Power, given by the gods to one witch of each generation, is considered a great honor, but every witch before has died trying to master this all-too-powerful gift, one that the shell of a mortal can’t contain for long.
On the night of her birth rite, Avah’s coven is attacked, and Avah is left for dead. Confronted with a terrible choice, Avah must decide to either die or save herself by becoming like her enemies. Forced to seek refuge among the very beings she has sworn to kill, Avah vows revenge on those who took her former life from her.
As Avah slowly transitions into a life of blood and war and battles her own feelings for a man she is supposed to hate, she realizes everything she’s been told is a lie.
My Review of Blood Rose by Danielle Rose
I bought this book as The Blood War trilogy as the box set, I’m reviewing this book individually. I’m new to Danielle Rose’s writing, and I was thrilled after reading the Blood War trilogy. Having no prior knowledge about Danielle Rose’s stories I found her to be a very talented storyteller. Avah and Jasik are serious, funny, and extremely sexy with a little biting and lots of devouring, fiery sex. Her sub characters are snarky and funny as they accompany Avah and Jasik on their journey of find that all-encompassing love. You won’t want to miss a word of all two/three books since they are beautifully written.
In Blood Rose book one in the Blood War Trilogy; we meet Avah a young witch chosen upon her eighteenth birthday to accept the gift of power from the goddess. A war is raging with their old enemy, the vampires. Avah has been training for this day all her life along with hunting vampires. When out patrolling she comes across four very unique vampires, but the leader is the one she couldn’t take her eyes off. The sexual chemistry between the two confused her so she pushed it aside.
Jasik the leader of his Elite Vampire Hunters couldn’t take his eyes away from the young witch. He watched in wonder as she fought his fellow hunters, his brothers. She was brave, graceful and gorgeous taking on four much older, wiser and more experienced foe than herself. He saw her again as her coven was being attack by vampire abominations. Jasik saw her falter and ran to her side. He couldn’t allow her to die so he took it upon himself to change her into one of them.
