"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Series: The Black Rose Chronicles
Note: Book 2 of 3, not a standalone book
Author: A.K. Michaels
This is my review of The Black Rose Chronicles, Torment and Treachery, Book 1. I bought this book through Amazon. This is the second of a great series. Be warned though you will not want to stop with just this one book. I sat down to read this book and immediately found myself buying, and reading, the 3rd book in the series right away. Needless to say I did not get any sleep last night because I read all 3 in a row.
This book is the story of a young woman named Rose who is a Witch/Wolf hybrid in a world where society has almost completely fallen and the things that go bump in the night are no longer hidden from the world of Humans. Vampires, Wolves, Shifters, Fairies and even Demons are now not only part of the world but also part of the leaders. But not all of them are out for good and most of the species are attacking each other and the weakest, Humans, are basically screwed. But all of the species, especially the Vampires and Wolves, have made it their goal to see all the Witches wiped out and no one knows why except reference to a strange prophecy about a Witch who will do something major but no one knows what. Rose grows up to become an assassin known as The Black Rose, the deadliest assassin that the Council knows. She hides who she is from everyone and they only see her as part Wolf and a weakling because while she is wolf she cannot shift and has never felt her inner beast.
Rose has been betrayed. Basilius, who hired her to kill Cassius Allarde, lied to her and used her and put her life, and the lives of those she cares about in danger. Both Seth and her Father are now in the city and part of this situation. Cass is really her life mate and while this may hurt her relationship with Seth he knew it was coming. Rose now knows the truth and it may be too late because now she has been kidnapped by Basilius and taken to the hell realm and Cassius does not have the power to go get her. 1 hour in the real world is equal to a week in Hell. How is Rose going to stay alive, safe, and unmolested in that time? Will she be able to return and if she does will she be the same person she was before? The only good thing Rose has on her side is that Basilius does not know that she is part Witch and that is something that is very handy for her. A large amount of trust is placed in Kuan (who healed her in book 1), who is a Chinese God, who can hop realms and see the future and wants nothing more than to help Rose to the positive future that he sees in his visions because she is special. Kuan knows she will unite all the creatures in the world, bestow wonderful gifts on them, and be one of the main people who can help the world begin to heal. That is if she can get back to the side of the man she loves and is destined to be with and is not twisted by evil.
New (and hilarious) characters are introduced in this book and I really loved Nikki and I would like to see her have her own books because there seems to be so much more about her than we see.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal type of romance, it is well written and very suspenseful. The author was able to describe different worlds or dimensions that really brings them to life. If you pick up book 1 you will want them all.
This is as beautiful story and brings you along for a ride to rid the world of evil. But buried in the mess of evil, love is in the air and this love will have to be proclaimed in order to win the fight. Can we find the true love of our hearts or will the world be lost forever? Come on this journey and discover yourself.. You will not be disappointed.
Until Next Time... Tabi
This series has some language and sexual scenes but the story is one worth reading.
Juan, Cassius, Seth, Brenden, Valeria, Valentine, and six strong warriors are transported to Hell to rescue Rose.
Read the book to find out how the fight ends, or does it?
