on April 9, 2013
Series: Darkness Rising #3
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult
Things are getting desperate for Maya and her friends. Hunted by the powerful St. Clouds and now a rival Cabal as well, they’re quickly running out of places to hide. And with the whole world thinking they died in a helicopter crash, it’s not like they can just go to the authorities for help.
All they have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they’re so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting more and more out of control.
But Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her. And now, like it or not, she’ll have to face down some demons from her past if she ever hopes to move on with her life. Because Maya can’t keep running forever.
Old secrets are revealed and unexpected characters make a surprising return in this stunning conclusion to Kelley Armstrong’s New York Times bestselling Darkness Rising trilogy.
I’ve said it before but it bears repeating, I looove Kelley Armstrong’s books. They’re really the only paranormal books that I anxiously await these days. So obviously, I was sad to see the series end, but like always this book definitely delivers.
Action packed, slow burn romance, a snarky loveable main character. The Darkness Rising trilogy has everything. There’s twists and turns by the dozen and it makes the book impossible to put down. These are definitely read in one sitting paranormal books. They’re also very fresh. Kelley Armstrong sets all her books (I think) in the same world, but they all have such a different feel and a drastically different feel from other YA PR books. I just love them, can you tell?
The Rising was a fabulous conclusion. Everything turned out just how I wanted it too, but it was a wild unpredictable ride to get there. I’m going to miss Maya and her brave friends. I really hope that Armstrong has some plans for more YA books in the future, because I will never get tired of reading her exciting and addicting stories.
