“She was supposed to kill vampires, not save them. Those were the rules. That was the lore.”
A rare and powerful witch whose blood is lethal to vampires, Leila has always viewed her serryn abilities as a curse. After seeing her mother slaughtered as a child, Leila longs for a safe, quiet life.
That wish is shattered by Caleb Dehain – a vampire with a dark past and a darker heart. The most feared serryn hunter of his generation, Caleb now needs the help of one of the witches he despises to save his dying brother.
A serryn who has no reason to help him. Except that he has her sister.
Caleb and Leila are each other’s worst nightmare – but the slow-burning spark of attraction between them is undeniable. Will Leila’s blood be his damnation? Or could her kiss be his salvation?
* Blood Roses is book two in the Blackthorn series.

You can read my review of Blackthorn #2 here
This was probably more what I had expected #1 to have been. This time we have the story of Leila and Caleb and although I had enjoyed the first book, I felt that this one had more structure. But I didn't immediately like Caleb and by the end I'm not really sure that he won me round but I definitely liked Leila. This book also showed us the really dark side of Blackthorn which was very intriguing. Mixed with the romantic elements that we had grown accustom to in the first book there is still some very sexy scenes too.
It still had the suspense factor and it still made me jump in places. I really like what this series is becoming and I can't wait for more.
Looking forward to Blackthorn #3!
