The Rising by Kelley Armstrong

Contemporary, Romance, Paranormal, Young Adult

Vancouver, British Columbia

Maya and her friends are getting desperate.  They are being hunted by two Cabals, the powerful St. Clouds and another rival group.  They are also running out of places to hide. 

They have a name of someone who just might be able to help them by giving them answers they desperately need.  Answers like why they are so very valuable in the first place.  Also why their supernatural powers seem to be getting increasingly out of control.

What Maya is not prepared for are the truths that she finds waiting for her.  Also whether she likes it or not she needs to face some demons from her past if she has any hope of having a future and moving on with her life.  Maya is finding out that she can’t keep running forever.

This is a great way to finish a trilogy that has proven to be fun and a roller coaster ride.  Readers will be sad to see the end of the trilogy but will find it was definitely worth reading.  The reader gets to see how the characters grow through the adversity they are forced to deal with while trying to get their lives back.  The action never stops and keeps the story moving at a very fast pace.  It will also have readers hoping for more about the characters set maybe father down the line to see just what happens when the characters get a little older.  This proved to be a very fun trilogy that will have readers re-reading them just to revisit some fantastic characters.  This is a must read.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
