Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer Review

"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 this remarkable final installment of the Nightshade trilogy, international bestselling author Andrea Cremer crafts a dynamic novel with twists and turns that will keep you breathless until its final pages."

Wow... After an okay book in the middle of the series, I didn't feel that I really need to read the last book. I mean, come on, the ending is soooo obvious. 

Bloodrose is the final book of the Nightshade trilogy as said in the synopsis. Before Bloodrose was Wolfsbane and before Wolfsbane is Nightshade. (All of these books have reviews).

After spending hours of finishing this series, I was going to call it quits until I found read the final battle. Let's start with the rotten parts of Bloodrose.

Rotten Part One: First all, once a traitor, always a traitor. I don't understand how Ren can switch sides so fast. He was about to kill his father and now he wants to help his father. Well, Calla, you should really have learn your lesson by now. Traitors are traitors, especially if they betray the pack.

Rotten Part Two: The beginning was horrible. Why would you start off with the escape of Ren? Seriously, that is a horrible place to start of Bloodrose. I don't even like Ren. 

Rotten Part Three: You start looking for the three pieces of the weapon now. The search should have start before this book. It's just like Harry Potter, but worse. At least Harry Potter had the sense to start in the six book instead of the seventh. (Remember the locket?) Instead, the search has to start in the final book of the trilogy. Wow. BTW, the search for the cross went by way too fast. Andrea Cremer could have slow down a bit.

Rotten Part Four: Ren's death. What a shame. It could have been a good fight of Shay vs. Ren. 

Good Part One: Calla's reaction to the situations. Her way of reacting to Shay/Ren drama was pretty smart. Tell them to stay back and away from her. She's the alpha, not them. They'll solve the issue after the war. 

Good Part Two: Shay's weapon. At least, he found it.

Good Part Three: The plot. Lots of twist and turns to satisfy the reviewer. 

Good Part Four: The ending was amazing and sweet. I love how well the happily ever after part works. Good ending.

Rating: Three point five out of five. Rounded to Four.
