Mini Review: Six Scorched Roses by Carissa Broadbent

Title: Six Scorched Roses

Series: Crowns of Nyaxia #1.5

Author: Carissa Broadbent

Six roses. Six vials of blood. Six visits to a vampire who could be her salvation… or her damnation.

Lilith has been dying since the day she was born. But while she long ago came to terms with her own imminent death, the deaths of everyone she loves is an entirely different matter. As her town slowly withers in the clutches of a mysterious god-cursed illness, she takes matters into her own hands.

Desperate to find a cure, Lilith strikes a bargain with the only thing the gods hate even more than her village: a vampire, Vale. She offers him six roses in exchange for six vials of vampire blood–the one hope for her town’s salvation.

But when what begins as a simple transaction gradually becomes something more, Lilith is faced with a terrifying realization: It’s dangerous to wander into the clutches of a vampire… and in a place already suffering a god’s wrath, more dangerous still to fall in love with one.

Desperation made Lilith visit vampire, Vale, because she was determined to be the saviour of her dying people, her dying land, forsaken by the God of her people.

A tenuous friendship strikes up……and then more!

Even though this was short, I loved the letters between Lilith and Vale:

‘One day, he ended his letter with a drawing of a nightbane flower, and a tiny note beside it: sweet with a bitter bite.’

I wonder if these 2 will make an appearance in book 2 of the series, I can’t remember them from book 1 but I can’t wait to continue on in this world!
