Book Review: RISE by Jennifer Anne Davis PLUS #Giveaway

Rise by Jennifer Anne Davis
Release Date: May 17, 2016
Publisher: Month9Books

The people of Nelebek live in fear of persecution from the evil Morlet, who reigns with a dark and destructive magic. The kingdom’s only hope lies with the Order of the Krigers—twelve warriors with mysterious powers linked to magical weapons.

For over a century, Morlet has been annihilating the Order, picking them off one by one. Eleven Krigers have been hunted down, tortured, and imprisoned in his dungeon. Now, only one remains.

Sixteen-year-old Kaia survives by keeping her head down and minding her own business. But when she finds herself in the middle of a public execution where the mysterious Morlet is in attendance, an odd compulsion she can’t resist comes over her.

Kaia looks into Morlet’s eyes.

Soon, an ancient power awakens and Kaia can no more blend into the scenery. Will she heed the call of the Krigers or will Morlet’s dark magic destroy the last of the Order?

Oh how I loved this YA fantasy novel! RISE pulled me into Kaia's world, a kingdom ran by an evil ruler, where only 12 special warriors can stop him. There's adventure, romance potential, and lots of action!!

Thankfully Kaia has been trained to defend herself. I found her compassionate yet strong, like Tris in Divergent.

Then there's Anders. Ah! My favourites are the bad guys you can't help but love. An assassin by trade he ends up helping Kaia on her quest; however, he proves to drive her crazy more than butterflies for the most part.

Fans of Throne of Glass will enjoy this new fantasy world. Davis writes with a magical passion that makes the world of the Krigers come to life.
