“The sequel to Rift and the prequel to the New York Times bestselling novel Nightshade.
Everything Conatus stands for is at risk. Hoping to gather enough resistance to save their order, Ember and Barrow attempt a desperate escape. But fate offers little mercy. When their mission is exposed, the couple face relentless pursuit by the supernatural horrors that act on the commands of Eira’s ally: the mysterious Bosque Mar. A shocking revelation forces Ember out of hiding, sending her back into the heart of dark magic at Tearmunn keep, where she must convince her old friend Alistair of her love or face dire consequences. Ember’s deception offers the only chance for the resistance to succeed, but what she discovers in the shadows beneath the keep will shatter her world and bring about the Witches’ War.
Richly sensual and full of magic, action and danger, Andrea Cremer’s fifth book set in the Nightshade world is an edge-of-your-seat page turner.”
What I loved most about this book is the great plot. Once again, the reader is thrown for a ride of a life time with plenty of plot twist to knock you off your seat. Ember is thrown into some hard decisions in which she must play roles in order to accomplish her mission. I like that Ember is really good at this. She is very flexible in changing who and what needs to be done. She is not afraid to take the lead in needed be.
The love interest gets very interesting. The thing with Ember is, even though she can play parts well, her emotions can get the best of her. In the love interest, she doesn’t quite watch her feelings. They do get the best of her and well….lets just say this go crazy!!!
Rise is an great fantasy delivering great action with every page. It goes beyond what you think it will be surprising you with every plot twist and turn. An entertaining sensation that will sweep you off your feet, Rise is compelling!
I give it 5 BITES!
