I would say that perhaps more depth of some other characters would have been good to read about but over all I did enjoy this.
Lenara is a young woman without a mother who has to find out about love and life on her own. Her father provides her a comfortable life, but this doesn't take away any of the perils that Lenara must face, particularly those she has to face when getting the medication that her ill sister so desperately needs from the dark forest. It gives for an exciting story.
I found that Ms Clyde has a nice way of storytelling. It draws you in and you feel like you are there. Graveyard Rose is a pleasant read with vivid descriptions and likeable (and not so likable) characters. It is great to see another book with a female character who stands up for what she believes and wants in life and it's a good read for any teenaged girl.
Graveyard Rose is the first in the series of The Rose Chronicles and the end of the book leaves you wanting to find out what happens next as this is definitely not the end of the story. The second and third book in the series are already out.
Set in the Dark Ages (I think anyway), Transylvania is a country run by a high society of vampires, who are quite happy with the way things are. The Guardians are employed to keep the local monster population down to stop drawing attention of the church and other civilisation who might want to do the masters harm. Most of the background lore is explained in Chapter 3, and whether this comes across as an info-dump or a necessary quick tour of the world given the novella length of the story will be up to the reader to decide. Personally, though, I think it could have been woven into the main text which would have given it more life. That's just a minor point though.
After a series of strangely coordinated werewolf attacks terrorise a nearby village, the Guardians are sent to investigate. Can Lena, a young woman of 18 years, make it in a male-dominated role and overcome the sexist attitudes of some of her fellow soldiers? And who is the mysterious stranger who helps her out of a bad situation?
I'll be the first to admit, that as a middle-aged bloke, I'm probably not the target audience for this kind of story, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. It's a good, well written, easy read and I was rooting for Lena as a character from the start.Read more ›
I enjoyed reading the book and found the story to be a quick read. I liked the fact that the main character was a strong young female and could stand up to any man who crossed her. I got a bit confused with all the families, but this did not detract from a good story. I found the story to be interesting from the start and her descriptive writing really made you feel that you were there whilst you were reading this book.
This was the 1st book I have read that was written by this author and I am definitely going read more. What is a nice touch is that the author is given the second part of the story free, so you want have to wait long to find out more about the mystery man
