This book was really just okay for me. I mean, I was able to finish it and I wanted to know what was going to happen to Autumn, Samuel, and Holt. I just felt that a lot of times the characters reacted irrationally, there were a few things that need to be cleared up, and the ending was left undone (that is the best way I can explain it).

Okay, here's the story (Spoiler Alert):

Autumn has decided to stay the summer with her friend in Castelton, Maine. She's trying to give her parents time to focus on their dying marriage and really doesn't want to be around to see it crash and burn. So, when she arrives via airplane she is expecting to have her best friend pick her up, however the best friend is MIA. A complete STRANGER shows up at the airport(for an unknown reason), saves some guy from falling off of a light pole, and introduces himself as Holt, then basically says "Hey, I live in Castelton, let me give you a ride." Sounds weird, I know but that's basically how the whole book goes, weird things happen with no explanation. They see each other a few times after that and then he decides that they can't 'see each other' for a while....I don't think they had even been on a real date. Through out that, Samuel (who she feels 'drawn' to), is rude and sarcastic towards her. Then, his relatives threaten her with bodily harm if she's ever seen with Holt again. That's about how the rest of the book goes, with Holt backing off then coming back and all of Samuel's family giving her death threats for wanting to be with Holt, because they want her to marry Samuel. (She has only know both boys for a total of two weeks by the end of the story and she is SIXTEEN.

The Plot

Autumn is looking forward to a summer in Maine with her best friend and away from her arguing parents. She is especially excited when she meets Holt and Samuel, the good-looking sons of the wealthiest families in town. But she can't ignore the strange things that happen around Holt - how everyone seems to like him, how the flowers in his garden seem to come to life. And she can't explain why Samuel is determined to keep her away from Holt, even though he barely talks to her himself. Whatever is going on, Autumn's summer is turning out to be more eventful than she was expecting.

The Good

I got quite wrapped up in One Black Rose, and I stayed up late to finish it, rather than put it aside to finish the next day. Part of this was because I couldn't easily flip through chapters in my Kindle version. (Yes, I read books out of order. Yes, I am aware that you probably think this is a travesty against literature. I maintain that reading is a highly personal experience, and you can do nothing about how I choose to engage in it.) But part of it was that the pacing of the story was very good. I got a little bit more information about what was going on at just the right intervals that I was constantly curious but never felt like I had to wait too long for more information.

I also appreciated Autumn's best friend Carley. I feel like a number of books I have read lately have a set-up where the main character has a "best friend" who is either unlikable or has nothing in common with the main character. We as readers have a hard time fathoming why these two girls are friends, and we are left with an unsatisfying explanation like "we've been friends since kindergarten.

I haven't ready many fairy books but every time I do, I fall in love again. One Black Rose was no exception. I like the main character Autumn and her tenacity. She isn't easily swayed by a persons looks which is a nice change from so many of the other paranormal romance books I read. In this book there are a lot of questions that weren't fully answered so I'm excited to buy the 2nd book in this series and figure out what is REALLY going on. If you enjoy the magic of fairies, I highly recommend this book.

Like stepping into a modern, urban fairy tale, One Black Rose, is charming, enchanting and utterly romantic. With vivid depictions of Maine and the two families of the Winter and Summer Courts, I was instantly pulled into Maddy Edwards lush story. Easy, smooth, addictive prose, entertaining and authentic dialogue and a plot that transports the classic fairytale into modern teen fiction, I happily spent the day within the world of One Black Rose. As well as the awesome action-packed and glittering final chapters, my favourite element of the story was the aptly named heroine Autumn. Fiesty, stubborn, brave and fiercely independent it was excellent and refreshing to come across a YA heroine who continues to remain strong despite her supernatural bond to the two male protagonists. Speaking of which... I find myself in the unusual position of being completely on the fence: Holt or Samuel?! I don't know! They're both yummy. Mmm.

Great Read! Highly Recommended!
