4.0 out of 5 stars perfect blend of romance and darkness, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The blood of the black rose is a powerful and well-written story, and not your typical vampire/romance novel. It starts off with the death of Demyan’s sister during a blitz, and then it drags you into the Holocaust.

Erzsebet the vampire believes Demyan belongs to her, she comes to him in the concentration camp, but she does not turn him straight away, she allows him to suffer, and watch his people suffer and die every day.

Vadoma, a gypsy seer has seen the destruction of the gypsies, and the darkness that will consume Demyan, so she creates a bond between him and a young girl Alhena. Alhena is the light to combat the evil darkness. Alhena will be reborn to him throughout the decades until he is saved.

Many beautiful dark poems fill the pages. The story was a perfect blend of romance and darkness, with a slight touch of erotica.
The sexual scenes in the book are quite detailed, so I would not recommend it to younger readers of this genre.

I loved this story but the only thing for me that did not seem to capture the rest of the book was when Erzsebet is taken by The Merciless Order, I would have liked her to put up more of a fight, not been captured so easily. She is the most evil vampire in the book and I would have loved to see how cunning and cruel she could have been in this scene, but that’s just my personal opinion.
Even though this book is part of a series it can be a standalone book. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
