About THE RISING (taken from

Things are getting desperate for Maya and her friends. Hunted by the powerful St. Clouds and now a rival Cabal as well, they’re quickly running out of places to hide. And with the whole world thinking they died in a helicopter crash, it’s not like they can just go to the authorities for help.

All they have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they’re so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting more and more out of control.

But Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her. And now, like it or not, she’ll have to face down some demons from her past if she ever hopes to move on with her life. Because Maya can’t keep running forever.

Old secrets are revealed and unexpected characters make a surprising return in this stunning conclusion to Kelley Armstrong’s New York Timesbestselling Darkness Rising trilogy.

Review of THE RISING

Once again, I’m going to be gushing over Kelley Armstrong this whole review. What I really love about her is that she’s fantastic at anything she writes. Whether it’s a young adult novel, like this one, or an adult novel or even a children’s novel. Everything she writes is amazing.

This book did not disappoint me. It was written with her usual fantasticness. It was also a perfect ending. The problem wasn’t completely resolved but it was good enough. It was actually a pretty cool ending. The rest of the book was awesome too. I liked all the running around and meeting new people. I loved the new characters that were introduced. They were all really cool. Plus I loved learning about the other experiments. That was fun.

What I love most about this book is that it’s even more connected to her world in the Women of the Otherworld series. I like how she actually mentioned some names of characters we’ve seen in other books. That was really, really cool. I wish she would have dine more. I miss the other characters.

I liked all the characters, the same as always. They actually change throughout the series, like normal humans should. I was a little upset with who Maya ended up with but I’ll get over it. I really loved Rafe, he was my favourite by far. I also love Sam though too. She’s just super cool. Actually, I love all the characters. Except like Nicole but she’s not important. It’s hard to choose a favourite character because they’re all so good!

This was a perfect ending!

5 out of 5

“We’ll meet you here. Hopefully everyone will be in human form.” A wry smile. “Though I’ll warn you, he’s not a whole lot more pleasant that way. At least as a wolf, he can’t talk.”
