Educational Value Bloodrose could initiate discussions about teen sexuality, relationships, and how Calla handles having two potential love interests.
Positive Messages There are positive messages about all kinds of relationships, as well as a focus on the fact that a family is more than a blood bond -- it can include the people who nurture and care for you unconditionally. The story also encourages relationships based on love and respect rather than convenience and obligation. Calla mistreats and misleads one of her suitors to the point of rendering her unlikable. She can be manipulative and self-centered, but everything works out for her, sending the message that the end justifies the means.
Whenever it suits her, Calla lies. That said, Ren, Connor, and Shay are all incredible warriors who protect those they love. In conflicts between the werewolves, Seekers, and Keepers, each group suffers many losses.
A couple of key characters are killed off, one in a particularly anti-climactic way that will upset many readers. Other less important characters also die during the climactic battle, and one main character is presumed dead.
The deaths are mourned but not for long, as this is a "warrior culture," where the solider-like characters consider it an honor to die fighting for their beliefs and each other.
Sex Calla initiates sex by taking off her top in one sex scene and spends a good bit of time thinking about sex or touching both of her suitors. She has sex with only one, but she does passionately kiss the other. Other couples finally admit their feelings for each other and share a few intimate kisses; in one case, the girl is 16 and the guy is The two male alpha werewolves are openly jealous of each other.
Language Occasional cursing, including "bitch," "a--hole," "s--t," "cocky bastard," and "goddamned. The main character, Calla, continues to agonize over her overwhelming feelings of love, lust, grief, and responsibility for leading her wolf pack in a dangerous war against their oppressors.
The body count includes a few key characters, and one death in particular will upset many fans. Several couples kiss passionately, and Calla initiates sex with one of her two suitors. Despite all of the steamy descriptions and bloody sequences, the trilogy does focus on the themes of loyalty, friendship, sacrifice, and family.
