    Reviewed by Delene Vrey for Readers' Favorite In a short time, Sophie has lost her father and her brother and the only things helping her through the difficult time are her job as a police detective and her brother's ghost. Yes, she has powers, some that she does not even know about. In The Black Rose: An A.L.P. Legacy Novel Book 2, the sequel to The Sword of Reckoning by Lea Schizas, we meet a new heroine who does not take anything from anyone. She is a strong woman while remaining feminine. She is pulled into the A.L.P. through her new position as a detective and partner to Brian. He had a tough childhood and has been part of the A.L.P. task force for a while, working with Sophie's father up until his death. Sophie has no idea of how paranormal her world will become until she is brought face to face with vampires. To top it all off, her dream lover turns out to be a real person. And a demigod at that. Written in the same playful tone as The Sword of Reckoning, we are again taken on a joyride of paranormal experience, looking for an escaped Vampire Lord. In keeping with the spirit of The Sword of Reckoning, Lea Schizas has put together another action-packed paranormal romance/mystery. The Black Rose is a story with a relaxed and laid-back feeling, supported by the casual dialogue and snarky comments, and the humor that breaks the tense situations. The characters become so well known to the reader that one can almost anticipate their reactions to situations. As this is the sequel, less time is spent introducing the characters and environment, while more time is spent on the story, with all its intrigue. This story is paranormal from start to finish and a pleasure to read. The word choices and style are casual and informal. Reading the story is like floating on water while consciously trying not to sink into the water. So if you love vampires, witches, dragons, and angels and want to relax with a book, this is for you. There are some sensual scenes and innuendos in the dialogue, so I would not recommend it to younger readers.

    Thanks for your feedback!
