My Review:
Maya, Daniel, and Corey are all that's left of the small group of supernaturals that fell out of the helicopter that was trying to kidnap them. Proclaimed dead the group is searching for any clues they can find that will save them. When they finally reach someone they think can help it turns out to be a lost cause, that is until Maya's long lost twin brother shows up.

With new information gathered from their new ally they make a plan to attend their own funerals to try and talk to their parents. Too bad the groups set out for their capture are attending the funeral as well. When things get dangerous the group splits up and in a desperate effort to save her brother Maya gets captured and taken right into the lions den.

Taken into the Cabel laboratory she finds her friends, Rafe, her dog, and her father. While Maya is happy to see her friends again safe and sound she knows she has to get out and find Daniel, Corey and her brother. That desire becomes more urgent when the staff show her pictures of Daniel getting hit by a car. After a life or death attack against someone she once considered a friend, unexpected help comes and she can finally escape with almost all her friends.

Together they join up and find her brother with Corey, an unharmed Daniel and a new lead that brings they face to face with Cloe, Derek, Simon, and Tori. When the team finally bands together their only hope is that Cabal wants they bad enough to negotiate.

Oh my goodness, I loved this book. I wish there was more Chloe in the book because I so love her. I think it was amazing to see the groups band together again from both trilogies. This book had so much going on and it was just jam packed with awesome, thrilling scenes that will leave you on the edge of your seats until the last page. The Rising was a great conclusion and I have no doubt in my mind this these books will always hold a special place in my heart.

Oh and P.S. I was super happy with who Maya ended up with in the end 8) Needless to say I was doing the happy dance.

About the Author:

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers' dismay. All efforts to make her produce "normal" stories failed.

Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She's the author of the NYT-bestselling "Women of the Otherworld" paranormal suspense series and "Darkest Powers" young adult urban fantasy trilogy, as well as the Nadia Stafford crime series. Armstrong lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.
