More About the Author

Christine Morgan divides her writing time among many genres, from horror to historical, from superheroes to smut, anything in between and combinations thereof. She's a wife, a mom, a future crazy-cat-lady and a longtime gamer, who enjoys British television, cheesy action/disaster movies, cooking and crafts.

Her stories have appeared in several publications, including: The Book of All Flesh, The Book of Final Flesh, The Best of All Flesh, History is Dead, The World is Dead, Strange Stories of Sand and Sea, Fear of the Unknown, Hell Hath No Fury, Dreaded Pall, Path of the Bold, Cthulhu Sex Magazine and its best-of volume Horror Between the Sheets, Closet Desire IV, and Leather, Lace and Lust.

She's also a contributor to The Horror Fiction Review, a former member of the HWA, a regular at local conventions, and an ambitious self-publisher (six fantasy novels, four horror novels, six children's fantasy books, and two roleplaying supplements). Her work has appeared in Pyramid Magazine, GURPS Villains, been nominated for Origins Awards, and given Honorable Mention in two volumes of Year's Best Fantasy and Horror.

Her suspense thriller, The Widows Walk, was recently released from Lachesis Publishing, and her horror novel, The Horned Ones, is due out from Belfire in 2012.She's currently delving into steampunk, making progress on an urban paranormal series, and on a bloodthirsty Viking kick.

I have been a fan of Ms. Morgan's for several years due to her collection of fanfiction and original online writings. I've known about this book for a while, but have just been able to purchase it.

Having already been a fan, I knew what to expect and was not disappointed. Morgan's way with a phrase made the book an excellent read. It's a dark fantasy, but she manages to have the characters squeeze in a good one-liner every now and then. The book is a page turner and I couldn't put it down. I finished it in one night - I HAD to find out what happened next. If you like Stephen King, I'd like to think you'd like this as well.

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed dark mysteries with a bit of the supernatural thrown in. It is the first in a series and I will definitely be purchasing the other books in the near future.

Format: Paperback
So some of you may remember that I did a review of Changeling Moon by this author a while back that I generally liked, but noted I had picked up the wrong book, since it wasn’t the first in the series. For some reason, my brain will occasionally randomly see a book and leap to, “Oh hey, this looks really cool; it must be the first book,” or “Hey, there are three books here, so it must be a trilogy,” despite what evidence to the contrary may actually be on the back cover.

I have repeatedly torpedoed myself with this glitch and sometimes Frog, who, back in the day, was really upset when I presented him with the first three books of what I thought was a trilogy… and it turned out to be the beginnings of “A Song of Ice and Fire.” I’ll let you imagine how thrilled he was to get to the end of book three, and realize that no, this was not, in fact, a trilogy. Since the books are still coming out, I still haven’t lived that one down.

Well, Black Roses is actually book 1 in the “Trinity Bay” series, so I can finally redeem myself somewhat and at least do a review on the beginning of this series.

Let me start out by saying that Ms. Morgan is an incredibly strong writer, and her sense of dramatic timing, imagery, and voice are some of the best I’ve read. Her prose is always engrossing, and she manages to give the reader a very strong sense of who her characters are, and a vivid picture of their settings without bogging her scenes down. Her world is absolutely believable and real to me as it’s written. This is not a story where suspension of disbelief even crossed my mind. I just believed.

This book is a good read.

Christine Morgan writes an excellent story. She decided to write a Horror novel and this is a novel which makes the town of Trinity Bay a place that I will never forget. I would beware of going anywhere near this lovely town, because of my newfound dread of Black Roses.
