"Rise" by Jennifer Anne Davis & Giveaway

You KNOW this book has to be good if I'm telling you about it. If you've been a reader of mine for any given time, it's no secret that I'm extremely picky when it comes to YA Fantasy AND ebooks.

This one, "Rise" by Jennifer Anne Davis, just happened to be both! (But you can get it in paperback!)

The people of Nelebek live in fear of persecution from the evil Morlet, who reigns with a dark and destructive magic. The kingdom's only hope lies with the Order of the Krigers--twelve warriors with mysterious powers linked to magical weapons.

For over a century, Morlet has been annihilating the Order, picking them off one by one. Eleven Krigers have been hunted down, tortured, and imprisoned in his dungeon. Now only one remains.

Sixteen-year-old Kaia survives by keeping her head down and minding her own business. But when she finds herself in the middle of a public execution where the mysterious Morlet is in attendance, an odd compulsion she can't resist comes over her.

Kaia looks into Morlet's eyes.

Soon an ancient power awakens and Kaia can no more blend into the scenery. Will she heed the call of the Krigers or will Morlet's dark magic destroy the last of the Order?

This book kept my interest. Again, this is a fantasy with some typical tropes-but Davis does them very well. If you enjoy Mary Weber's "Storm Siren" trilogy or"Sunbolt" by Instisar Khanani-this is absolutely your next read. Kaia reminds me a lot of Nym (stubborn and bull-headed!). 

Davis has also done some wonderful world building. The whole concept of the Krigers is pretty darn interesting and the first climax within the book pretty much sealed the deal for me.

Filled with adventure, angst, magic, and a splash of romance-"Rise" is a fun and well-worth read.
