The Silver Rose Kindle Edition
The youngest of three Cheney sisters, Miri is renowned for her mystical abilities and calming aura. But her serenity has been shattered by the betrayal of the man she loved. As a girl, Miri was enchanted with young Simon Aristide. But time and events altered the handsome, gentle boy she knew, transforming him into France’s most notorious witch-hunter. When Aristide’s accusations of sorcery forced her two older sisters into exile, Miri vowed never to forgive him.
Lonely and grieving, Miri takes refuge in her home on Faire Isle, a haven for the wise women known as the Daughters of the Earth. But the peace of her island is once more destroyed by the return of Simon Aristide. Unbelievably, Simon has come seeking Miri’s help to fight a mysterious woman known as the Silver Rose, a sorceress whose mastery of the black arts rival that of Catherine de Medici, the notorious Dark Queen. Miri refuses, but when the Silver Rose’s sinister magic threatens Faire Isle, Miri has no choice but to join Simon in his dangerous quest.
Despite her resolve, Miri still desires Simon, believing she sees traces of the man she once loved. But can a Daughter of the Earth ever truly trust a witch-hunter? Even as she risks her life to unmask the Silver Rose, Miri may be risking her heart as well.
A blend of fantasy, history and romance, The Silver Rose is the third installment in Susan Carroll’s acclaimed Daughter of the Earth series.

Ms. Carroll is becoming predictable in her writing. Only one main character and the Cheney's one by one fade into nothingness and the Dark Queen is as always a shadow on the wall
The Courtesan was the first one I read and it is my favorite. I was disappointed that we did not get chapters devoted to Ariane's and Gabrielle's lives in The Silver Rose. Even though the Courtesan revolved around Gabrielle and Remy, we still got to see glimpses into Ariane's and Miri's lives and they both figured in the climax, along with Renard and Simon. I really thought the sisters would be drawn in to help battle Cassandra, especially given Gabrielle's relationship with her, so I was disappointed that this was not the case. The climactic scene with Catherine de Medici and the Silver Rose in this book was not nearly as exciting as the climaxes of the first two books. I also thought the book ended too soon and left me feeling deprived of a proper ending with the reunion of all the characters.
I loved the relationship between Miri and Simon, the witch-hunter in love with a "witch", I found it to be very romantic and I feel as though these two lovers got to know each other more deeply than Ariane/Renard and Gabrielle/Remy before taking their relationship to the next level, which, by the way, took way too long to happen and was not as romantic and passionate as the couplings in the first two books. I love Martin le Loup and my heart broke for him, but I believe Miri made the right choice. She and Simon were each other's destiny. I loved the way Simon was written in this book, with so much insight into his past and the choices he made.
I only wish so much time had not passed (ten years) between the Courtesan and the Silver Rose so that we could continue to have more adventures with the Cheney sisters. But I just discovered the Huntress, which I understand continues the story of Martin and Meg and I can't wait to start reading it!
