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.
The Rising is a great conclusion to the Darkness Rising Trilogy. Unlike it’s previous two installments this one was fairly action packed throughout and managed to not be overwhelming in that regard.
It seems all of the readers questions and concerns get addressed by the end and we even get to see the characters from the Darkest Powers trilogy make an appearance. Daniel’s presence wasn’t felt as much in this one but we did get a new addition to the cast of characters. There was tension and realism to the interactions between most of the characters and I appreciated how well Armstrong portrayed these relationships.
I was extremely satisfied with the ending and really liked the afterward bit that we were able to see. Having that really made me feel like I could walk away satisfied. When I think back over the trilogy as a whole I believe that it could possibly have been done in two books rather than three, but I think that is mostly because I can be an impatient reader sometimes when this start out slow. With that in mind I still enjoyed each book. This series is a good trilogy for those YA readers that like a pretty endings.
