After Reading: Bloodrose
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.
This series has been a lot of fun, and I was sad to see it end! Of course, there's a prequel coming out (RIFT) that I'm looking forward to, so it's bearable :) Anyhow, these are books that I think are best all read together. I picked up Bloodrose only a few months after the previous book and that really helped, but I would like to sit down and read them all back to back, as there are tons and tons of little details (and a lot of characters!) to keep straight and some of that gets lost. Overall, this was a fun read, and a great end to the series. I'm still not sure how I feel about the ending though. I mean, it worked well, but just felt kind of, well, strange. Has anyone read it? Know what I mean? I was left doing a little head-scratching "huh" there at the end. Anyone else want to chime in with their thoughts?
