Spotlight: Blood Roses (Blackthron #2) by Lindsay Pryor (Plus Giveaway)

 Book Description:  
“She was supposed to kill vampires, not save them. Those were the rules. That was the lore.” 

A rare and powerful witch whose blood is lethal to vampires, Leila has always viewed her serryn abilities as a curse. After seeing her mother slaughtered as a child, Leila longs for a safe, quiet life.

That wish is shattered by Caleb Dehain – a vampire with a dark past and a darker heart. The most feared serryn hunter of his generation, Caleb now needs the help of one of the witches he despises to save his dying brother.
A serryn who has no reason to help him. Except that he has her sister.
Caleb and Leila are each other’s worst nightmare – but the slow-burning spark of attraction between them is undeniable. Will Leila’s blood be his damnation? Or could her kiss be his salvation?

1. Describe yourself in one sentence.
I’m a British paranormal romance author with a passion for animal welfare, books, films, mythology and making the most of each moment.

2. Tell us a little bit about the Blackthorn series.
In an imaginary future, the world is controlled by humans who rule over vampires with an iron fist. Society is divided and ‘third species’ are both feared and discriminated against. Additional seeds of unrest are sown by whispers of a vampire prophecy foretelling the overthrow of the human regime.
Blackthorn itself is the most impoverished of several administrative districts – a real melting pot for vampires, lycans and humans – and a subsequent hive of social unrest.
This dystopian backdrop is the perfect setting for intense forbidden romances – romances that will not only impact on the fate of humankind, but also on the fate of the ‘third species’ who have spent far too long waiting for their time.

The first four books each focus on a different couple who are going to impact on the eventual future of this new world, with their stories becoming increasingly interwoven as the series progresses to the final outcome.

It’s a dark, sexy and complex series with lots of twists and turns. I can only advise that you don’t judge anyone or anything too quickly.

3. Who is your favorite character and why?
I couldn’t possibly choose. I love them all for very different reasons.

4.  Sneak Peek! Can you give us your favorite quote/scene from Blood Shadows or Blood Roses?
Can I do one from each? There are way too many favourite scenes for me to choose from, but these are amongst my favourite quotes: 

“Strong isn't about not being afraid, Caitlin. It's about facing what you're scared of.” Kane to Caitlin ~ Blood Shadows

“I’m more than twisted. I’m the worst kind of vampire… But you’re the one who’s craving me, so what does that make you?” Caleb to Leila ~ Blood Roses

5. Movie/s you look forward to watch this year?
I’m hugely into sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal horror. I’ve just seen Superman and World War Z and loved them both. I can’t wait to see part two of The Hobbit later in the year. I’m also looking forwards to Elysium, Gravity and want to check out Apartment 1303.
Watch the Awesome Trailer!

Special thanks to Bookouture


  1. This one sounds really good. I haven't heard of it before, but the blurb caught my attention. Witches? Yes! Vampires? Yes! A witch whose blood is lethal to vamps? I'm sold. Great interview as well :D I still need to see World War Z!

  2. World War Z is awesome, Becca. I highly recommend it. And thanks for your interest in Blood Roses. Blood Shadows is book 1 in the series (the giveaway book), so I always suggest those new to Blackthorn read that one first.

    And thanks so much for hosting me, Book Whales. :-)
