Book Review- Rise (Eve #3)

I just finished reading Rise (Eve #3) by Anna Carey for an Around the World ARC Tour.

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.

Once again I enjoyed the Eve series.  I do have to say that I didn't remember much of what happened in the previous two books.  And I'm not sure I was ever really caught up.  But I enjoyed the story nonetheless.

I liked Anna and all of the girls.  I felt bad for Charles, the man that Eve was forced to marry.  He seemed like he would do anything for her. 

The plot was interesting and kept me hanging on.  There were several little twists and turns.  And the big one at the end--there were no clues that it was going to happen but it was still predictable.  And I liked it :)  I think the trilogy wrapped up nicely and I look forward to seeing what Anna Carey will be writing next.

I gave this book a rating of 4/5.

  1. I read and enjoyed the other two books in the series. I thought book #2 was quite different from the first. Nice to know the series wraps up satisfactory. I'll be looking forward to reading this one myself. Nice review.
