Rise: An Eve Novel by Anna Carey

"Rise" concludes the trilogy of the, Eve series. It picks up right where, "Once" ended. There continues to be adventure, action and suspense.

The story is well written and the character's are interesting enough, yet everything ends rather abruptly and there is quite a degree of prediction.

Overall, "Rise" is an fair conclusion to the series. I don't want to divulge any more information as I'm afraid I will give the book away.

Make sure you read, "Eve" and "Once" before you pick up this book or you will be completely lost.

Grade: B
