Review: Rise (#3) by Anna Carey
Summary from Goodreads:
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 part of 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.
I took me forever to finally finish this series, I read the first two a year or so ago and thanks to my library finished the series.
The third book was not my favorite, I loved the first one and the second was good, but I would have liked a different ending. And two of my favorite characters were not in it until the very end, it focused too much on the castle life and did not pick up until the end.
However, this was a solid series and I'm planning on reading her Blackbird series (even if it is in the You narrative format) because I love the way she creates worlds and characters.
I recommend checking out this entire series!
