We left off from Dahlia with only a name--a name that is the next piece to the puzzle. A name that will eventually, "lead us to him." But before we delve into the continuation of the Blood Crave Series, let's answer the question that's been on all our minds.

Who is Rowan?

This 21,000 word novella answers that question, and of how Rowan has come to know the vampire with pitch-black eyes.

You know what I love and hate about novellas? It's like the author is just dangling the characters in front of your face without giving you anything substantial to really dig into. I swear they were created to make me more impatient than I already am. The evil minds of authors are ganging up against me by creating so many amazing novellas that make me even more addicted to their series. 

Now, I am done whining like a child. Well mostly. My review is going to be short and sweet just like the book itself so don't judge me on its shortness. I really want to not spoil some awesome things. 

Fallen Tears by Christina Channelle introduces the newest character to the Blood Crave series (and I will pout on the sidelines of Dahlia doesn't make an appearance in the next book as well). Rowan has faced more than her fair share of difficult situations and she definitely seems to have a knack for finding it all on her own. It doesn't seem to take much for her to find herself in harms way but none of it is her fault. Really. There has always been one person who found her at her worst and saw her at her best and that was Kaji. It becomes clear that their story will never be simple. All it took was one situation for the whole house of cards to cave in on them. Will they survive beyond this?

Rowan is a sweetheart in the beginning, clinging to the happiness she once dwelled on as a child when she finds herself alone in the scary world. She had this ability to find a bright spot in the darkest of moments and those closest to her seem to bask in the warmth she provides. I found the innocence that she had at first to be very endearing. She trusts people without a moment's hesitation, which likely could've been her downfall. It all changes when she gets a job because let's be honest, doesn't everyone's lives change when they get a job? Well, hers doesn't change for the better in the opinion of those who control her fate. Suddenly she is forced from her safety, from her home into a life that never was her own. Her shaky resolve in hanging onto her humanity has snapped and now she is determined to shield herself from everyone. To protect herself, she must forget what it felt like to be happy... to be in love. She must remember those that hurt her most were the people she trusted. If only things were that simple and everything was black and white. Her character development is astounding over the course of the novella and I cannot wait to see more of her character.

My excitement for the next book is definitely at its highest. Why must I wait? Oh right, because I don't have magical powers that suddenly reveal all the books I want to me. Dang. That would be a legit power. So basically, the next time you hear about this series, it will be me fangirling (yup, I went there) over the next book.
