***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
Mara’s saga continues in this beautiful continuation in The Black Rose Gaurd Series. I am in utter awe of the detail and passion; KL Bone put into writing this book. More mysteries revealed, the continuation of “WHO IS SANDRA?” saga, but most of all more clues to the tragic relationship between Mara and Edward. Will they finally find their happiness??

In this book, Mara’s sub captain was slain by the Arum Court during a siege on the Black Rose Gaurd’s main home and Sandra (who was under their care) was taken without cause. This angers Mara and she calls all the guards home from all their respective ongoing duties. Together with her most trusted friends, she sets out to see King Matthew’s Court and enact revenge and rescue the soon to be Princess of the Arum Court. The big mystery of who exactly Sandra is is looming over my head. I keep ticking off clues, but everything is so blurry. I can not wait until book 4. 2017 will be an awesome year for books!! AND I PATIENTLY AWAIT THE NEXT BOOK IN THE SERIES.

Five stars and a grand sword salute to KL Bone for writing another fantastic tale of court intrigue and tragic romance.
