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.

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.

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.
