    Six hundred years ago, the Muir Court was wiped from existence, destroyed by an elite group known as the Black Rose Guard. Their Captain, Mara, has a reputation of being a harsh woman who leads the guard with a fierce formality. During her long years, she has known pain, loss, heartache...and one great love. Edward was the Captain of the Royal Guard. He loved her once. However, it was a love that faded the day he met young Liza, the Princess who stole the heart he had once sworn belonged to Mara alone.

    powerful

    this was a very powerful story. From the start of the book it was full of action and you can feel the characters anguish throughout

    A half-mortal, illegitimate child of a lesser court, Sarah's struggle only begins with leaving all she has known. Her hope for a better future, amid the prejudice of those who look down upon her tainted blood, is maintained by a blossoming love, and being personally trained by the court's captains. An unexpected turn of events gives Sarah an opportunity to change her fate - a position of leadership in the Black Rose Guard. But to accept will mean abandoning both the man she has come to love.

    Another great one by KL Bone!!

    Maybe once the series is finished up and I listen to it again.

    Six hundred years ago, Mara, the immortal Captain of the Black Rose Guard, led her knights to their greatest victory: the annihilation of the Muir Court. For avenging a fallen princess, she was hailed a hero. Yet for Mara, the mirror reflected only a killer. Haunted by the slaughter carried out in the name of honor and duty, Mara hoped she had fought her last battle. But when knights of the Arum Court murdered her sub-captain, hope shattered and the blood roses began to bloom.

    Another great one by KL Bone.

    I absolutely loved this book. I really helped fill in a few gaps. I can't wait for the next one and to see what will happen with Mara and the Queen...Show More »
