Book Review: Rise by Anna Carey

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.


My Thoughts:

The Eve Trilogy is a trilogy that I have been reading and loving! Though Rise did not live up to every single one of my expectations, it is still one of my favorite conclusions to a dystopian trilogy. Character development was truly perfect. Eve grows so much in this book, in fact, she hardens and molds into this very brave strong female, which made her more intriguing to read about. There are some twists in the book that I definitely didn’t see coming, which is better than the few I did see coming. The only thing I am not happy about is the ending result for the soon-to-be Prince in the book. I won’t spoil it, but I will say that I was really looking forward to something more happy for him. On the other hand, I would rate Rise and the rest of the trilogy a 4 out of 5 stars!
