I was disappointed with this final book in the Nightshade trilogy. I really enjoyed the first, but I found this book slow and predictable. I found that there were too many witty comments between characters that just dragged the book on, and didn't add to the plot or character development.

A very bittersweet but still fitting end to the Nightshade trilogy. Very unique series - looking forward to reading the prequel(s).

Overall, it was a very interesting series, and I think the ending was satisfactory, but that tiny detail involving ren just dampered my mood....:P I LOVE YOU REN! :( I love the searchers and their personalities and again, conner and adne are the cutest ever <3 like...EVER. So I'm glad I actually got through the series wasn't a disappointment (excluding that one detail about ren..) :D

Okay, so let me start of by saying i was not a big fan of the first book but the last two were very good. i am in a agreement in one way with Mahala, and that is the ending did throw me for a loop and it was sorta happy but i did leave a bitter taste in my mouth too. but unlike Mahala, i would recommend this series. it was well done, so the ending was not how i pictured it. it happens a lot with me lol, but still a great book and series, so if you have not read, then do, but if you have read it then let me know how you feel about the ending.

I just finished reading this book; the end of the trilogy. Wow! I am not a teen and I was awestruck by the ending. Sure, part of the ending I predicted in the first book but the rest was a complete surprise! It was very poetic but was a total tear-jerker. I'm so sad that this was the end but she is coming out wiht a prequel but it just won't be the same! I highly recommend the three books. The ending is haunting my brain!!!!

I loved the first two books and the world that Andrea Cremer had created and couldn't wait to read Bloodrose. 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 awhile to process what happened. The end is completely unexpected, and threw me for a loop. I was left with more sadness than satisfaction, and confusion more than clarity.If you're looking for a happy ending, i guess you do kind of get one, but its almost like there's a bad aftertaste left in your mouth when you finish the book because so many things feel unresolved and you feel cheated as a reader. I don't know that I would want to recommend this series, knowing how it ends.

Can't wait!!! love the 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 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.
