‘Bloodrose’ trailer review and interview with author Andrea Cremer
The third book in the phenomenal New York Times bestselling Nightshade series 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 her brother, 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. Read more Read less. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Add all three to Cart Add all three to List.

BLOODROSE by Andrea Cremer | Kirkus Reviews
Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Bloodrose is the third and final book in the Nightshade trilogy by Andrea Cramer. I am going to dive right into this review, but know that if you are not familiar with the series, you may be a little lost in the review, and I do my best to not post spoilers.
After reading Wolfsbane, book 2 in the series, I was extremely excited to pick up Bloodrose. Bloodrose picks up right where Wolfsbane leaves off, and the book is full of action from the very beginning.
Bloodrose: Nightshade, Book 3
Shay and Calla and their new searcher friends are on a quest to obtain all the pieces of the Scion’s Cross and to defeat their enemies, the Keepers. Where Wolfsbane was slow on bloodrse, Bloodrose was fast paced and kept me turning the pages.
The love triangle between Ren, Shay, and Calla is still going strong, and since this is the final book, we know that Calla will have to choose one of them, but it is never really clear who Calla will pick. Andrea Cramer does a great job balancing drama, action, and emotions in her books and up until the last portion of the book, I was loving it.
Then, the end happened. I am sorry to say that I am very disappointed in the ending of this book, and therefore the series. I was left speechless, and it took me cremmer to process what happened. The end is completely unexpected, and Andrea Cramer threw me for a loop.
The way the love triangle is resolved just seems completely unfair, and really, it about broke my heart. I was left with more sadness than satisfaction, and confusion more blooodrose clarity. Why I can theoretically understand crremer events of the ending, that doesn’t mean that I like it, and unfortunately this ruined the series for me. I don’t know that I would bloidrose to recommend this series, knowing how it ends.
The writing is excellent, the characters engaging, the world is creative, but the unsatisfying ending puts this story and the bloodrise in the tragedy category.
Because of this, I am rating Bloodrose 2 stars. I know that not everyone will agree with my take on Bloodrose. Bpoodrose review is my own opinion, and all these thoughts are just my own opinion. I am usually not prone to write reviews, however after reading some of the previous reviews for this novel I felt that I needed to.
I almost didn’t read this series there are two previous novels, Nightshade and Wolfsbane due to those very same reviews. But alot of the complaints centered around this book, and the shocking events that happened within.
I was sort of prepared because Cremr HAD read the reviews, however once I finished the bloodgose I was astounded that people had called Calla “selfish”. She was so far from selfish that it’s not even funny. Her life was dedicated to doing what she thought was best for her pack.
However she did walk away from an arranged marriage to be with someone she loved, so I guess doing ONE thing for herself makes her a “selfish” person. Another critique was that she was “cold-hearted” and “manipulative”. I can see where cremef might see her as manipulative.
In my opinion, I did not see her overall character as manipulative, the way she played both Ren the mate chosen for her and Shay the mate she chose could be seen as manipulative.
However, considering the fact that bbloodrose were at war, Calla is an alpha, and she needed both of them to help when the battle, I think most would forgive her for her choice.
And it’s not like she didn’t have feelings for both Ren and Shay – she did. And even up till the end she struggled between the two. Did her heart always lead her towards Shay? But that does not mean she did not care for Ren. But life is not always easy or simple. Don’t get me wrong – I really enjoyed the character of Ren and was very upset when he bloodros. And yes, Cremer could have went with any other number of endings for the book.
However, I really enjoyed the fact that Cremer stepped away from the “norm” and gave us a surprising and heart-wrenching ending. The way she stood over Ren’s body and at first refused to let anyone near him really pulled at my heart.
And the way she refused at first to face the fact that he was gone really made you want to cry your eyes out. But the fact that Cremer could – number one, surprise us like that, and – number two pull that sort of reaction from us is what made this an excellent book. Very few authors have the nerve to kill off one of their main characters – one of the supporting ones, sure – but very few do away with such a charismatic character like Ren. I did wish at the end that Cremer had also went into the viewpoint of the wolves and let us know how they were feeling after they lost their human selves and became solely wolf.
I think that may have helped us move on from Ren’s death some. But, overall a five-star book. After being an avid bookworm for over 20 years, very few manage to surprise me and also pull that kind of emotional reaction from me.
Many reviews expressed their dislike of Bloodrose, and felt it detracted their enjoyment of the first two novels. For me, it was the exact opposite.
The first novel, Nightshade, I really had to struggle to keep reading. I found it somewhat boring and too much like vremer novels from this type of genre. The characters really did not pull me in right away – they seemed kindof lackluster and bland.
Bloodrose (Nightshade #3; Nightshade World #6) by Andrea Cremer
By the end though, Cremer had me wanting to read the next one to find out what had happened and would happen to Calla, so I started the second one, Wolfsbane. This one was much better, and I knew once I started that I would be finishing the third on that same day LOL All in all, I would recommend you take a chance on this series – despite the reviews.
Apparently, blooddrose is one of those sets of novels that you either love or hate And not one you’re going to forget two days later! Bloodrose is the third and final book in the Nightshade Trilogy by Andrea Cremer.
She has ended every book on a cliff, and finally some closure. Calla, Ren and Shay, the love triangle will finally be decided right? This book was awesome! Everything that they went thru to get what they needed, the way they bloocrose together.
I loved it and it was so exciting. Ok, so Ren and Shay are still at each other throats, literally in this book, but what can you expect, they love the same girl nloodrose they are wolves. I still bloodrosse Ren to be the one I relate to and like better.
