History called it the shimmering court. A palace of glass upon the water surrounded by silver roses. For a millennia it stood as a symbol of power and stability within the immortal realms.

In a single night, it washed away in a sea of blood.

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.

Determined to avenge her fallen comrade and save the young woman for whom the long-dormant roses have awakened, Mara dons her ancient Arius blade, and prepares to once again lead her men into a fight from which they may never return.

All the while, her enemies prepare to exploit her greatest weakness: the life of her only love, Edward. Deep in the heart of the Arum Court, King Mathew hoards secrets of his own as a voice whispers through the shadows: Beware the Silver Rose.

***Valerie – #NerdGirlVal’s Review***
In this book of the Series of A Tale of the Black Rose, K.L. Bone takes us back to a day Mara would like to forget, with dreams and nightmares of happy times ahead and the past. Mara is having a hard time to deceiver between a dream and real life. I sure hope by the last book, Mara and Edward sure get the happy life together that they so deserve.
K.L.Bone takes you back with flashbacks to the battle of the Muir Court and that lawful day. You learn more about how the battle came to be and how the Black
Rose won the battle. As you learn how it went from start to finish, there is a lot of jaw dropping occurrences. Surprise after surprise as the battle takes place. Then the confession to Edward hundreds of years later.
You find out who Sandra is and that in it’s own self is jaw dropping in it’s self. How?, Where was she? ,and How did she survive?, are some of the unanswered questions still left about her. I’m sure down the line we will learn more about Sandra. You also find out who the Sliver Rose is connected to.
Mara make some uneasy decisions for her troops that have them questioning what is going on. Jake is made the Caption of the Black Rose and Sara is made the co-Caption. Why? Where is Mara going? Is she giving up The Black Rose?
And the best part, if you can call it the best, Mara makes a deal with Mathew and Edward isn’t to happy about it. But this has been coming for a long time and I can’t wait to read about this fight. I will be cheering Mara on all the way.
So as I conclude this review, I look forward to the next book of this series. K.L. Bone is one very talented author. To be able to write a story or in her case stories with flashbacks that draw you in even more then the actual story of that particular book, is absolutely amazing. Until the next book!
