The Rose by PD Alleva

    A dystopian science fiction thriller of telepathic evil greys, mysterious rebellion, martial arts, and Alien Vampires.

    Sandy Cox believed WWIII was over. But for those Alien Vampires, War Has Just Begun.

    Forty-eight hours after a World War III treaty is signed, Sandy Cox awakens in an underground compound unable to move. Tied to machines she screams for help but no one answers. At least no one human.

    And they’ve taken her unborn child.

    Phil is a rebel freedom fighter who has had more than his share of Alien Vampires. Armed with THE BLADES, a sacred alien martial art, he enters the compound on a mission to find Sandy. But as he battles through the compound, Phil discovers Sandy has her own agenda. Finding her stolen child is all that matters.

    But the vampires have their own plan and Sandy’s baby is at the heart of their diabolical plot. Joined by a crew of rogue soldiers, they must navigate the underground compound, battling genetically mutated humans, aliens and monsters.

    When battling Alien Vampires, one thing is certain… Get Ready To Bleed!

    My Review:

    This book! This book is just absolutely brilliant! Incredibly written, a story that is gripping and quite literally left me stunned at several places throughout. We’ve got a world war 3, land devastated by war, people in refugee camps taken to underground laboratoriums, mass murders and to top it all of ALIEN VAMPIRES! The way this whole scenario comes together is so incredibly brilliant you’ll have to read it to truly appreciate this masterpiece.

    I absolutely loved how we get insight from all sides of the ‘fighting’. There’s Sandy, whose rescue starts off the story, because there is something important about her. She’s also pregnant, which will have a huge part to play in how things will turn out. Why she’s so special we’ll only find out at the end of the book, but until then we see her make bad decisions that don’t only affect her own well-being, but also the people closest to her. 

    Then there is Sanos, the head of the space vampires that is slowly going mad on a drug that’s created in one of the underground labs, where Sandy also ends up in. I want to hate him, I really do, because he is the enemy to the captive humans. My loyalties should lie with my species, correct? Buuut the book is so fantastically written If connect with the struggles of the aliens as I learn more about their struggles and motives. And not only Sanos, but also the seven under his orders. We’ve got Cam, Grimes and Lao American and Chinese soldiers trapped in the same base under false belief that they are working on governments orders and totally oblivious of the real happenings below ground. And we’ve got Phil, the only person who truly knows what’s going on, but his focus is to get Sandy back to safety. Because she is important to the cause.

    Aaand then shit hits the van!

    With several things escalating at the same time, this fast paced thriller is born. And I can’t begin to describe how incredibly brilliant this whole book is with everything that’s going on.

    The characters are fantastic and you’ll want to root for every single one of them. I got to warn you, though, there is a lot of dying going on in this war between aliens and humans. If I say alien vampire’s I don’t mean big cuddly beasts. They’re damn cruel! Humans are but food to them, kept like livestock in cages. There is absolutely no connection they could make with us. Until Telas, one of the seven, gets her own agenda. And I know all of what I’m saying doesn’t make any sense to you since you’ve not read the book, but I hope some of it spikes your interest, because this one is something you really need to add to your reading list.
