Sanctuary of Roses - Colleen Gleason Started out as a strong, character-driven drama and ended on a weak, disappointing note. Towards the end of the book, the carefully wrought, emotional story of the first several hundred pages devolved into a boring, snooze fest of plot machinations, complete with clumsy descriptions of combat and a mustache-twirling villain that should've been christened "Giant Plot Contrivance", because that's what he was. I was terribly disappointed, and enough so that I won't be seeking out additional books in the series. 2 stars.
