The Light bore her.

The Earth whittled her.

The Air swayed her.

The Water cleansed her.

The Fire renewed her.

And after thirteen lifetimes, her blood still condemns her…

As the final battle between her ancient enemies and her kin rages around her, Ren must decide if it will be her first great love, or the great man who has loved her since the first, who will sacrifice their last life on Earth to bring the truth to light to save a world teetering on the brink of eternal darkness.

This second installment of The Rosefire Trilogy by Ky Lehman: a series created for all young adults at heart, answers many of the questions raised in Book 1, THE 13TH DESCENT, as the individual battles of Ren, Josh, Mike and the Tor all come to a head as they wage their final war against humankind’s greatest threat. Ren also must cross swords with the traitorous Tor Princess, Avira, who is determined to claim Mike as her own, so they can live, and forget, together under the Bloodstones dictatorship of the new world: a darkness Ren and The 13th Brigade will fight until their last breath to save Mike, Josh, and the people of Earth from enduring.

The third and final book in The Rosefire Trilogy, THE 13TH RISING, is in the making, and will be coming…soon…

I wasn’t sure what to expect from The 13th Brigade, but the book pleasantly surprised me. Ren hasn’t always had it easy. Belonging to one of the most powerful families that ever lived has its upsides, but its downsides too. She used to be married to one of the greatest teachers in history in her past life… But in this life, she’s still struggling to find out just who she is, and who she wants to be.

In this second installment, Ren, Josh, Mike and the Tor each have their own battles to fight. Ren especially has to battle the Tor Princess Avira, who wants Mike for himself. She also has to do some soul-searching to find out what she wants, who she wants, and the person she wants to be. Earth is in danger, and it’s up to Ren and the 13th Brigade to rescue Earth’s inhabitants, but it might come at a terrible price.

With great writing that flows very fast, I was immediately drawn into the story. Ren is an amazing character. I could instantly connect with her, feel her pain, her struggles, her confusion. The plot was great too and always kept me guessing. I don’t want to give too much away, but I loved the addition of past lives, the whole thing about Bloodstones, and basically just everything about the book.

If you’re a fan of paranormal romance, I highly recommend The 13th Brigade!
