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.
Wow. I don't even know where to begin. This series is absolutely breathtaking. Bloodrose left me with so many conflicting emotions, I didn't even know how to rate it on goodreads until a few days later. Andrea Cremer is a very gifted author and she has an amazing ability to create wonderful stories.

Even though I have always been Team Shay, Ren always had a special place in my heart, but in Bloodrose, I completely fell in love with him. He is just such a beautiful person, inside and out and I loved seeing that side of him. Calla was back to her kick-ass self. She was in control and confident and I loved that about her. I also loved seeing Shay grow into a man and into the Scion he was destined to become.

The Searchers were just as wonderful in this book as they were in Wolfsbane. I just love them!

That ending literally killed me. I can't even really talk about it. There are no words, but I think it was perfectly done. The epilogue was also very cute and I thought it ending things on a nice note.

If you haven't checked out the Nightshade series yet, what are you waiting for? I don't think you will be disappointed at all!!

  3. So glad to see another Team Shay fan-they are not as vocal as the Ren team and it made me feel so alone.
