Book Review: Rise by Anna Carey

Title: Rise
Author: Anna Carey
Series: Eve (Book #3)
Pages: 310
Publisher: Harper
Year Published: 2013
First Line: “Charles rested his hand firmly on my back as we spun once, then again around the conservatory, the guests watching.”

“How far will you go when you have nothing left to lose?
When she lost her soul mate, Caleb, Eve felt like her world had ended. Trapped in the palace, forced to play the happy, patriotic princess of The New America- and the blushing bride of her father’s top adviser- Eve’s whole life is a lie. The only thing that keeps her going is Caleb’s memory, and the revolution he started.
Now, Eve is taking over where Caleb left off. With the help of Moss, an undercover subversive in the King’s court, she plots to take down The New America beginning with the capital, the City of Sand. Will Eve be able to bring about a new, free world when she’s called upon to perform the ultimate act of rebellion- killing her father?
In Rise, Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight as Anna Carey’s epic tale of romance and sacrifice in the chilling dystopia of The New America comes to a stunning conclusion.”

My Rating: 5/5

This has been a tremendous series. One that teaches and makes the reader wonder about the future. The never ending what ifs that come with a future based novel make them such a fun read. Especially one filled with such great characters and concepts. The ideas in this book are fantastic and very well carried out. Thoughts are fully explained but not to the point where a reader gets bored. I have loved reading these books and this final one has finally given me just what I wanted. It is truly a 5. Anna Carey does an amazing job with her main character, making her relatable but not predictable, which I think for authors is a tricky task.  So thumbs up Anna Carey!

Thanks for reading,

Sidny xoxo
