After reading Once, I had to read Rise so I bought it right away, which is something I don’t usually do.
IF YOU HAVEN’T READ EVE OR ONCE, DO NOT READ RISE! THERE ARE SPOILERS!

My review for Rise:
It seemed that Once was a bit on the slow side so I gave Once 4 stars, but Rise redeemed the series back to 5 stars. I absolutely loved how Rise was written. Rise took a different direction than I thought it would go in, which is something that I love! The only thing that bugs me the most is that the ending of Rise ends with a scene that makes you question to what actually happens next and it ends with a line of dialogue. Seriously! It’s supposed to be the final book of the series and it’s going to be left up in the air. It just felt like it needed more closure, in my opinion. The next thing on my list after this review is write a letter/e-mail saying that she needs to make a fourth book because it can’t be left unfinished like that! So…
The book takes place 2 months after Once. Eve has married Charles against her will to save Caleb, but Caleb at the end of Once gets killed. Eve mopes around during the time for her loss, and Charles understands and gives her distance. Eve’s father, the King, acts like it’s no big deal and a weight lifted off his shoulder. In the meantime, Eve is found by rebel Moss who is actual the Reginald for the Palace. Moss and Eve plot together to kill her father so that his tyranny will be put to an end. Eve is the only person who can kill him. Will she be able to do it? Also, a few unexpected events happen that are extremely shocking and make the book more exciting. What happens and how will Eve deal with these unexpected events?
