Graveyard Rose is titled as the first book in a series, but a note inside the book mentions that it is part one of a full novel. However you want to think of it, this book starts off the story of Lena and her life, the area where she is living, and the situation going on in that time. Trouble is, it ends just as it is getting intriguing! Of course, that is just another good way for author Ginny Clyde to make sure that you will be reading the next book. This book has adventure and hints of romance. It combines fantasy, paranormal, historical and Gothic themes.
