Liz’s Review~A Vow of Thorns~by R. Scarlett


“You won’t be alone.”


A Vow of Thorns is the third book in the Blackest Gold Series. The series must be read in order. This Series is a Paranormal Romance Reader’s Paradise as with each book this fantastical world unveils more terror and more passion. As the plot continues to thicken, the fate of Tensely Knight and Molly Darling is left to be determined.


“He’d rip their throats out with his teeth. The predators out there had never met the real beast.”

Tensley and Molly have finally come to an understanding that they are destined to be together. As Molly’s emotions continue to build, she battles her desire to give her whole heart to Tensley. Tensley is obviously feeling emotions he has never felt before. However, he knows that if he falls in love with Molly, the penalty is death.


Molly has made a terrifying discovery and as she reveals the truth to Tensley, the two are drawn closer together. As the connection between Molly and Tensley becomes indestructible, Knight’s family is attacked. He must step up and take his rightful place as protector of his people. However, Fallen wants to bring Tensley and Molly to ruin and will stop at nothing to cause harm to them. As tensions continue to rise, the stakes are high for Molly and Tensley to fight for their love.


“Gathered in my hallowed kingdom of our kind, a wedding of my own subject to a rare, dangerous creature…”

Told in dual POV, A Vow of Thorns is by far my absolute favorite book in this series. Molly and Tensley have finally found their rightful place with each other, and the passion and tenderness they display are beautiful to bear witness to. Tensley is fiercely passionate about Molly, and the effects of her love have changed him. This world is dangerous and dark, and the plot is constructed in such a way that you don’t know who is safe or who to trust. The text is fluid and loaded with description. The secondary characters continue to play a pivotal role in the plot, and I especially enjoyed the darkness of Fallen and his Queen. The characters have become more developed and more complex as the series has progressed. I was quite stunned with the ending, and although I am sure many readers will want to throw their Kindles against the wall, I have complete faith in Ms. Scarlett to safely deliver these characters home.


Overall, I highly recommend this series to Paranormal Romance Fans who enjoy action, suspense, and a twisted plot. In this fantastical world, the twists and turns are never ending! I can only hope that the love that Tensley and Molly share will be enough to see them through.
