Brom rarely disappoints and "The Devil's Rose" is one of those books that exude a kind of energy in your hand the moment you pick them up, before you even turn the cover.

The blend of a tale of redemption, lost love and punishment, and an art style that forgoes the frills to create a hauntingly human and psychological world where judgement is black and white, brutal and unrelenting, yet where humanity, hope and perseverance somehow break through.

It's a phenomenally moving book, highly recommended for anybody who loved Brom's "Plucker" or any other of his works. Definitely something to treasure for the future.

Well I read this illustrated book with alot of high expectations. it certainly delivered. the artwork is amazing, capturing the feel and tone of the subjects perfectly. the story is very well written and the main character "Cole" is far from 2 dimensional. he is well realised and believable and his mission is one we can understand and relate to. without giving up key plot details all i will say is Cole's journey through Hell and Texas is thrilling and all i can hope is that he finds Rose at the end of it all. a truly great read. 5/5

As much as I enjoyed 'The Plucker' by Brom, I enjoyed 'The Devil's Rose' more, I really enjoyed the story, especially the backstory of Cole and Rose, which I thought was brilliantly written. I recommend this book highly. A book to treasure.
