“I really enjoyed this journey. It was a fresh new look at vampires and things supernatural. I really liked that the author based the book on twin sisters, one very calm and one very snarky. I do like the back and forth between Madeline and Marissa, who are our heroines. Our story starts out with Marissa getting herself into trouble (which she does really well) and the father moving the family from Texas to Pennsylvania. At this point the story really takes off and becomes very gripping. When the twins get to Pennsylvania they start meeting all kinds of interesting people and find out some very old secrets about themselves and their family history. They get to unravel the mystery about out and what they really are, which was a very good solid story told from our authors superb imagination.
If you enjoy a story that will take you an amazing adventure then you must read this book!”
“*I received this book in exchange for an honest review, so here it is :)
"Blood Roses"...the title seems obvious enough, and with the brief description given, it's easy to assume "Ok, another vampire story, but with the twist of it being twin sisters. Cool, sounds interesting." The surprise? That was the smallest twist in the book...
This book blew me away, in every way possible. Between the fascinating writing style, the intriguing characters, and a plot/story I haven't come across yet, I was completely enthralled! I started this book in the morning, and couldn't put it down until I'd finished the whole thing.
I was really drawn into all the characters, the challenges they faced, and the questions that were raised- it seemed like every time a question was answered, 4 more popped up, which kept it really interesting! There isn't a strong romantic theme to this book, which is really refreshing- the characters, even being two twin teenage girls, dealt with more serious things, with life, and that is nice to find.
The thing that made this book so great for me, is the author writes in a way that assumes his readers aren't stupid- there are puzzles, and things to figure out with the characters, and it really pulls you into their struggle and life. You're not being talked at, you're drawn in.
Overall, this book was a great read, and I can't wait for the sequel! I would certainly recommend this book- it was deep, and interesting, and I'd be surprised if many people got to the end feeling like they waste their time. I'll certainly be eagerly waiting for the sequel :)”
