In a single night, it washed away in a sea of blood.

Six hundred years ago, Mara, the immortal Captain of the Black Rose Guard, led her knights to their greatest victory: the annihilat

I am dead! My heart is in pieces on the floor right now! This was another fantastic installment in the Black Rose series full of passion, magic, danger, court intrigue, and hope. I am loving the continuation of Mara and Edward's story and I have grown quite attached to them as well as some of the secondary characters, I sure hope Gareth gets his own story and happy ending. Dang you KL for giving us an other amazing story and making me dread the wait for the next one!!! ...more

Wow! I'm twisted between wishing that this book had been the last installment or thanking the author for teasing me with another release. Heart breaking is one way to start this review, which is no surprise if you've read all of the books. Another way to describe it is beautiful. Not many authors can capture and create a world this lovely and, at the same time, evoke so many emotions from their readers. There is a lot of back and forth between past and present but i, personally, think that this ...more

Amazing storyteller!

K L Bone just keeps getting better and better with each book in this series The love story of Mara and Edward is enthralling, the honor and magic of the Black Rose Guard is unfailing, and the vengeance for the fallen princess Liza is almost complete. I truly can't wait to see what happens in the next book! I highly recommend these books to anyone who enjoys a wonderfully told tale.

I am such a fan of this series that I take my sweet time reading and reading and re-reading the pages over and over. Silver Rose is beautifully written as are all the others. In this installment of the Black Rose series many questions are answered and some answers come with much heartache and surprise. Bone is a master at putting you right there with the characters and feeling all of their emotions. I cried, I delighted. I raged!! All of it is so realistic yet not lacking in fantasy. My beloved ...more

In this book of the Series of A Tale of the Black Rose, K.L. Bone takes us back to a day Mara would like to forget, with dreams and nightmares of happy times ahead and the past. Mara is having a hard time to deceiver between a dream and real life. I sure hope by the last book, Mara and Edward sure get the happy life together that they so deserve.
K.L.Bone takes you back with flashbacks to the battle of the Muir Court and that lawful day. You learn more about how the battle came to be and how th

I got a little whiplash from the back and forth to past and present from this book. I was almost in tears when I realized there was to be yet ANOTHER book in the series. I'm not sure if it was from joy that the story would continue or sadness from the fact that it was yet to be concluded. I NEED TO KNOW!!!!

First off, we have solved a few mysteries in this book. Why Sandra effects the blood rose, when Edward and Mara first had sex 🤗, and one question I've been asking myself since book one, how Ph

***I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange which was generously provided by the author.***

So I don't hide the fact that I love this series, I love the characters and I know the world that KL Bone has created. This installment was still wonderful and heartfelt and I loved it, but I want so badly to find out how Mara and Edward will end, I'm bursting at the seems.

This book definitely turned a corner and took some unexpected turns. Mara and Edward's time at the Arum Court surprised me and what

This installment in the Black Rose series is a chilling, thrilling, gasp worthy emotional rollercoaster! Much the same as the previous ones in the series! Literally could not put it down! Loved every page! Except where the nasty Queen Clarissa was concerned! I am not sure there is another queen I hate so much in all the books I have read!
K.L. Bone is a genius!

This book had my mind spinning with the possibilities of who Sandra could be, what really happened with Princess Liza, what do the roses

Every book in the Black Rose series gets better and more exciting as you advance! You encounter lies, secrets are revealed, deception to the deepest place of your heart, people you have grown to love have turned on you, family ties are severed! This book is a page turner and I caught myself rereading parts to make sure I read it right because the words were so heart wrenching! Love the series and cant wait to continue on to book 6.

I am loving this story as it moves forward! I am in shock of things hah have happened through this story and the things that are coming to light. I am also saddened for Mara and Edward as their story progresses, its seems as they never catch a break in their tale. I can’t wait to see how everything concludes in book 6!!

A lot of things begin to fall into place. The characters are so broken that they can't even see it. The story is well written. I don't mind the back and forth on the story, what I did get a bit confused on is the different courts. There is one more in the series and I am hoping more will come. ...more

This story has it all. An epic love story, sword fights, honor, history, tradition and so much more. As you read the book you are transported into the world that KL Bone has created. A must read.

Silver Rose by KL Bone is the fifth entry in her Black Rose Guards Series.

This sweeping epic continues the story of Princess Mara, Captain of the Black Rose Guard, and the tragedies that have made her who she is today.

Silver Rose is the designation of the Muir Immortal Court. The destruction of that Court is chronicled in flashbacks to that very time, approximately 940 AD.

This is, at heart, a love story, in the tradition of the tragedies of old. Because when you love as deeply, as completely,

As each book is read, I find I cannot read the words fast enough, I must know what happens with each passing page. I am in awe at the skill to keep straight the centuries of stories for each character that K.L. has created. I cannot wait for the next one and what all will he revealed in it and all other books to follow.
