BLACK ROSE; DYING is a book of dramatic and insightful poetry that was written through the eyes of a soldier who has been deployed to Iraq three times. Edward Val's poems are inspired by the emotion, passion, and drive he felt after being exposed to the horrors of war and the inspiration of bravery. The reflections revealed in this book of poems span the four seasons as they release trapped feelings and express hard-to-face truths. It is easy for soldiers who are exposed to so much devastation to view the world as a place of darkness, but moments of light penetrate briefly and powerfully, and that is what Val's profound poetry is made of. EDWARD VAL writes in order to release emotions and express himself. Black Rose; Dying was written over a two-year period while Val was mostly deployed in Iraq. Val is in the U.S. Army and is a full-time college student, and this book of poetry draws on what he has witnessed, both good and bad. Val grew up in Spring Hill, Florida, and is now stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Look forward to the author's next book, Of Tooth and Nail, the first installment in a three-volume fantasy novel series.
