Bone has a master’s degree in modern literary cultures and is currently working toward her PhD in Gothic literature. She wrote her first short story at the age of fifteen and grew up with an equally great love of both classical literature and speculative fiction.

Black Rose is the beginning of the Black Rose Series by K.L. Bone. She was a new to me author, and I am grateful I gave her a read, and you will be too. Mara was born a Princess of the Court, but due to tragedy and circumstances, she becomes a member of the Guard. There is a darkness to this story, but enough light and love to keep you going, and rooting, for Mara and her loves. Once this story has grabbed you, you cannot stop; you will keep reading until you are finished, and it will leave you wanting more. Mara is a heroine for everyone. Total 5-star read.

This book is so great. It has love, tragedy, forbidden love, violence, and more. Mara and Edward have loved each other for a very long time. They have been through so much and it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier. Mara was born a princess and lost her parents very early. She meets Edward after losing them and he helped her through it. Her aunt is the queen of their fae court and she is a horrible woman. Mara and Edward have a once in a life time love; they are the other halves of their souls. Something that happened a very long time ago is coming back to stir things up now. Mara is still haunted by what she had to do and having to revisit it is harder than she can bear. So much happens in this book. The characters are forced to do things and suffer through things that extremely horrible. The Fae are known for being a bit ruthless and this book shows some of the meaner things they are willing to do. I am excited to read the second book in this series. This is the first book by K.L. Bone I have read and I look forward to reading more by her. She writes a story that takes you on a fantastic journey and has you pulling for the characters. I was given this book in return for an honest review.
