Dangerous and deadly and I've just agreed to take on the most treacherous mission of all. But when I meet my mark…the new leader of the Vampires, Cassius Allarde…my instincts are screaming that something's wrong. My heart gets in the way of my job but if I don't carry out what he's paid me to do, I'll have a powerful and angry Demon heading my way.

The Demon lied through his teeth, but that won't save me from his fury. I must complete my mission, but I can't stop my heart pounding every time Cassius is near me. When he looks at me I want to fall into his arms and forget I've made a deal with the Devil. But I'm The Black Rose and she always carries out her assignments…

excellent read A K Michaels never ceases to amaze me with her unique writing ability, how she makes you feel that you're part of the story that's unfolding. Deceit and lies is an amazing read, I loved the great mix of different characters that are in the story, they are strong and well developed. This first book in the new series had me intrigued from page 1 and totally transfixed right to the end. Exceptionally well written & highly recommended

This is different then the other books AK Michaels has written to date and it's very good Set in a time were the supernaturals roam free with plenty of rogues, little electricity, food or water, Rose is an assassin who only will kill those who deserve it and it very good at her job. No-one can tell what she is when they're near her and she never volunteers the information because she's a hybrid of wolf and witch and witches are being killed off and no-one know why. Rose is contracted to kill the leader of the council and when she gets to where he is several incidents occur that make her question the one who hired her and if the mark is really evil. With the help of many people she finds out the truth and also other things that turn her world upside down. Once again the author tells a great story with strong characters and makes you want more. I can't wait to find out what happens next.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Ava K Michaels is an exceptional author. I wasn't sure where this series was going but I can tell you, so far I love it. Rose is an assassin and can kill just about anything. Cassius is an ancient Vampire who wants peace in this damaged world. Rose is hired, for all the wrong reasons, to kill Cassius. Can she do it? Is she,strong enough to kill demons as well? Definitely a must read.

I just loved this book. I really wished it was a bit longer as its 175 pages and cant wait to read the next one. Its different to the other books by the author.

First I have to get over the way Ava ended this book!!! Yes it's a cliff-hanger, and a good one at that!! I don't like to talk about what specifically happens in a book because I feel it spoils it for people about to read the book. I like to say how the book made me feel and if I think it is good enough to recommend. Well this book put me through a lot of emotions, from being quite aroused (the erotic parts are THAT good!!)to angry, to frustrated, and I was even brought to tears!! I love a book that puts me through so much because I read to escape and to get lost in the story, and that was very easy to do with Rose!! I highly recommend this book, but I am going to warn you, you will be screaming for book 2 when you finish!! I will be waiting for book 2 very impatiently, so PLEASE hurry Ava!!

Brilliantly different read by AK Michaels. Set in a dystopian future rather than a paranormal present day, this book had an entirely different feel. It felt quite dark and gritty but still with the edge of humour you expect from Ms Michaels. The world has been plagued by a inter-species war and witches have been hunted to almost extinction due to a dark prophesy. Rose is part witch, part werewolf and the survivor of a witch hunt when she was a young child. Left with a guardian whilst her father hunted those who hunted them, she is trained well...too well you could say by her fathers friend, Seth, and becomes a lethally effective assassin - The Black Rose. She is sought out by the Demon, Basilius, to take down a rogue Vampire, Cassius Allarde, who is seeking to unite all "supers" under his commend and take over the world and hunt humans without regard. But Rose does not follow orders blindly, she researches her targets well and only kills when she knows, without doubt, that they are worthy of death. When she goes to meet the engimatic Cassius, under the guise of working for him, she is hurt by a "super" and wakes up under Cassius' care. The man she meets has little in common with the intel she has been provided. So Rose gets to work determining the fate of Cassius and his followers before she concludes her assignment. NO spoilers here but there is a cliffie (damnit!!!). I loved all these new characters. Rose, mysterious hybrid assassin; Seth - Ex Special Forces Soldier and Witch; Cassius - Vampire High Duke and all around hottie and Basilius - the new power hungry Demon leader of the Council (think paranormal UN). There are also great secondary characters that I hope we see more of in the other books in the series such as Sue and Valentine (who I think are adorably self effacing). There are also a slew of icky bad guys that by the end of the book you will be making up your own tortures to inflict on them (Ms Michaels writes really good slimebags!!!!) I read this in one go as I could not put it down and it was a well paced story with snappy dialogue and great interplay between the characters - both allies and protagonists! There are also nods to other paranormal authors throughout the book, Ms Michaels is not afraid to highlight the work of other authors to her large fanbase or to take a pop at certain sparklies! Roll on book 2! I was given a ARC of this book by the author for an honest review.
