Rose Taggert awakens in a greenhouse with no clear memory of the past two years and, to her horror, finds her body transformed into an unrecognizable form.
Paris Kuyper has convinced Rose that they are lovers and as Paris could not bear for her to die, he has used an ancient and dark magic to save her from certain death.
But the dark magic Paris has used comes at a price. A price which a terrible demon is determined to extract from Rose.
As Rose struggles to understand what is happening to her, she must navigate Paris’s lies and secrets; secrets that Paris will do anything to protect.
Thanks to the Isobel at Blackthorn Book Tours for my invite on to the tour end e copy of Rose by Remi Ungar.
Rose wakes up in a strange place, no memory, completely unaware of her whereabouts. And something strange is happening to her body... she soon finds she isn’t alone, in the shape of Paris, her apparent lover, or so he says...
For me, it’s hard to say much more on the book without giving away the plot and spoilers.
It was a difficult book for me to review probably because it’s not something I would ever pick up personally but I am trying to broaden my spectrum.
Whilst I wouldn’t say the premise behind the story is something new, Remi Ungar has certainly stamped his creativity and style on to it and written a good entertaining fantasy horror - psychological thriller hybrid that doesn’t rely on blood and gore to tell the story.
Intelligent writing, accomplished and confident, with a style to encourage you to read on.
Like nothing I’ve read before, there are plenty of scares and twists and turns in a fast paced and enjoyable quick read.
For fans of this genre I would imagine this to carry a big appeal.
Rami Ungar knew he wanted to be a writer from the age of five, when he first became exposed to the world of Harry Potter and wanted to create imaginative worlds like Harry’s. As a tween, he fell in love with the works of Anne Rice and Stephen King and, as he was getting too old to sneak up on people and shout “Boo!’ (not that that ever stopped him), he decided to merge his two loves and become a horror writer.
Today, Rami lives and writes in Columbus, Ohio. He’s self-published three novels and one collection of short stories, and his stories have appeared in other publications here and there. Rose, his first novel with Castrum Press, will be released June 21st, 2019.
When he’s not writing your nightmares or coming up with those, he’s enjoying anything from the latest horror novel or movie to anime and manga to ballet, collecting anything that catches his fancy, and giving you the impression he may not be entirely human.
