Thank you, P.D. Alleva, for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for a fair review!
I don’t pick up thrillers often, but I’m glad I picked up The Rose. This story follows multiple POVs as the world turns upside down. Just when Sandy thinks WWIII ended, she ends up in an underground compound filled with alien vampires. She also realizes in horror that they’ve taken her unborn child. Fighting the aliens to get her child back is all that matters.
This book is the first one in a while where I couldn’t predict most of what happened. It seemed like everyone had a twist up their sleeve. Just when someone’s life seems over, the story does a one-eighty turn. The descriptions were great throughout. I also liked the different characters: human and alien.
My main critique is that some of the dialogue and scenes repeated a bit, making the story pause. It wasn’t anything major, but it did slow down the pace in a handful of sections.
Overall, I enjoyed this book, and I’m interested to see what happens to the characters next.
