    One thought on “The Rising”

    1. Woah woah woah that was awesome. IT'S OVEEERRR *sobs*What a great way to end such a great series. Kelley Armstrong, you're fantastic. Just to get this out of the way: DEREK AND CHLOE AND SIMON AND TORI SHOWED UP AND EVERYTHING WAS BEAUTIFUL The only reason why I did rate this book 4 stars instead of five was that it, surprisingly, started out slow for me. The first 70 or so pages were kind of lagging. The last half of the book, however, was everything I could've hoped for. Add a cup of action, a [...]

    2. AFTER READING:This book is most definitely the best book in the series!So much happens in this book, many questions do get answered, and,yes, we get to see are friends from Darkest Powers again!Was there anything I didn't like about this book? Not really, but there are some things that I wish we got to see more of.1. Our friends from Darkest Powers.They only appeared during the last 1/4 of the book. While I don't like how they weren't in the book as often as I hoped, I understand. We have alread [...]

    3. Yep, you've seen that right. I gave 3 stars to the last book in one of my top fav trilogy of all time, and also to one of my fav authors. I also gave 3 stars to a book i have been anticipating and dying to read for about a year. Disappointment won't describe how i feel, more like shock. And i don't mean 'shock' in a good kind of way. My hopes and believe in the author went straight to hell. It was like being slapped in the face, man. For those who don't know: The Rising is book 3 in the Darkness [...]

    4. Whoop! Can't wait to see Chloe and Derek again :D Also, can't wait to see what happens next /yearlonganticipation.Love this cover :o !/justfinished. OMG THAT WAS AWESOME *A* KJDSAKJDDJHSKJDSJDHS <3 !

    5. I really enjoyed what was an ending to both this trilogy and effectively also the Darkest Powers trilogy, which is one of my favourite YA urban fantasy trilogies! Overall, I didn't love this trilogy AS MUCH as that one, but I did still really like it. It's so gripping and fast-paced that I read each book within 1-2 days and I enjoyed every moment of it.This book is action packed and I could barely put it down. I loved the way things came together and intertwined with the other trilogy. I also ac [...]

    6. Bullet Review:That was AWFUL. Running around for 400 billion pages, all the info dumping, all the prolonged action sequences, all the forced romance (because EVERYONE has to tell us about Team Daniel as the two have ZERO chemistry) for THAT SHIT ENDING?!NO STARS.Full review to come when I am done doing damage to this waste of paper.Full Review:After the events of "The Calling", Maya, Daniel and Corey are in Vancouver on the run. They try to track down help and end up accidentally in contact with [...]

    7. I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK!!!!!!! If I had to choose only one book to read in 2013 it would have to be this one. I have waited two years to see Chloe, Derek, Simon, and Tori again. I loved those guys, and while I was happy with the ending, I was not satisfied. Darkness Rising has been a good series. I love Rafe and Maya together and I love Daniel as well. I like the characters a lot in Darkness rising, but this trilogy doesn't have the amazing plots that Darkest Powers did. I loved t [...]

    8. Can't wait to read this book! Love the cover, I like the Darkness Rising Trilogy but I miss the characters from The Darkest Powers Trilogy, and now that they are coming back I'm even more excited to read this book. Just Oh my gosh, it's been like two years since I finished TDP but I still remember all of them, I can't wait to read more about Chloe & Derek & Simon and the rest of the gang. I hope something good happens for Simon because he just got kinda dumped in the third book and nothi [...]

    9. *2.75/5 stars*Definitely better than book two. It took me some time to get into the plot, but I quite enjoyed the last part of this book. And the epilogue was so freaking sweet! I also liked how the ending was a more of a conclusion to The Darkest Powers series. We got to see the trio from that trilogy, I was especially glad about Chloe and Derek's comeback! “We'll meet you here. Hopefully everyone will be in human form." A wry smile. "Though I'll warn you, he's not a whole lot more pleasant t [...]

    10. Well um. Yeah. I don't know how I feel about this. First things first - I really truly honestly think that the Phoenix kids - and their story - could have been nixed. The whole lot. I did not like Maya or Daniel or the Nasts meh. Give me 3 more books of Chloe, Derek and the St. Clouds, and I would be really happy. I just didn't connect with this storyline or these supernaturals. And I really just wanted to slap around Maya's stupid brother. So snappish. I get that he had a hard life, but he neve [...]

    11. These books are all amazeballs but can Maya stop lying/withholding info from Daniel. it's annoying and pointless. this is a spoiler if you haven't read the last book butMaya needs to tell Daniel and EVERYONE her suspicions about Nicole. Nicole can easily put them all in danger and could turn on them in a heartbeat and they all trust her. Maya needs to get over sparing Daniel's feelings and save their livesah. It's not like Daniel can really blame himself because Nicole's a crazy person and Maya [...]

    12. I did not like this at all. So anti-climactic. And there probably won't be a continuation with Projects Valhalla and Thunderbird. There seemed to be a hint for future adult books but if it's from Maya's POV I won't be reading it.

    13. OH MY FREAAAAKIING GOSSH!!!!!!!!!!!A YEAR????? (I'm gonna faint)i mean can we fans can have a preview? sample? anything???shit the suspense is killing meee!!CHLOE AND (SUPER HOT WEREWOLF GUY)DEREK ARE GONNA SHOW UP!!(finally)it was the only thing that I'm looking forward to in this series:)first reading the gathering, comment: "uh its ok"the calling: " its getting better atleast"the rising: SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!! CHLOE AND DEREK ARE BAAAAAAAAAACK??? WTF!!!! YEEEEEEEEES!!!! AT LAST!!!x [...]

    14. 3.5 stars - SpoilersThis was the best book in the trilogy, that's not to say it was good, it was just okay for the most part. The main reason I gave it 3.5 stars was because The Darkest Power gang made an appearance and because I liked the ending… Not the romantic ending just the resolution between the bad guys (the Cabals/the Nasts/the St Clouds) and good guys (the teens - Maya, Chloe, Daniel…).-I was disappointed that most of the story consisted of Maya and co running from the bad guys, ge [...]

    15. I can't wait for this book! I loved the darkest powers trilogy as well, even though I wanted there to be more then just three. I really like how she is mixing both of the stories Can't wait for more Chloe and Derek! Perhaps both Maya and Chloe will both narrate? Hope so! I feel as if Daniel actually loves Maya and that was part of the reason he wanted to break up with Serena. I guess we will find out. I really liked Rafe in the first, especially because he was all sexy and mysterious, but we did [...]

    16. Hopefully there's actually SOMETHING that happens in this book. All they did in the last one was just run around, get caught, escape, and then run around and get caught again. Oh wait, and then escape again. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    17. Let me first start by saying that I won this ARC through Kelley Armstrong's news letter. If you have not read any of her books I strongly recommend you do. Especially her Darkest Powers Trilogy and her Darkness Rising Trilogy. They are wonderful to get into and read. They keep you wondering what will happen next.I will not get into to many details about this book because it will just give away all the secrets and ruin much of the book. Which I feel is the reason why Kelley Armstrong does not pos [...]

    18. Didn't like it, didn't hate so : 2.5 StarsOut of everyone who has readThe Risingtill now I am the only one who hasn't given it 4 or 5 Stars. Guess I'm in the minority here.This book was a continuation of the previous one, everyone was on the run the whole time. I think Kelly Armstrong is really fond of camping trips because this 6-books series was filled with it. And even though it was all so repetitive I enjoyed this series, I don't know whybut I did.I have nothing much to say about this book b [...]

    19.  I make no secret that I loved Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers Trilogy, Chloe was an engaging protagonist and Derek was awesome, the plot was creepy, and addictive, and fun. So when The Gathering (Darkness Rising #1) was published I couldn't get it fast enough. While set in the same universe (most of Armstrong's books are) it lacked something. While the first series was able to avoid annoying YA clichés, the second one seemed to rely on them too much. The Mary-Sue protagonist with her perfe [...]

    20. I would just like to say Kelley Armstrong has been stringing me along since I read the second book of darkest powers and realized it didn't come out for another year. This series gives me a mild heart attack every time I finish each book.

    21. 4 starsThis book came out in 2013. I bought it that year. And I haven't read it until recently. 4 years. 4 years of me having every opportunity to read it but haven't. I finally started it two days ago and am now finished. Do you ever have those moments when you say, "I'm going to read that book." And then never read it until after a few years? That's me. I really don't have much of an excuse other than I had other books to read and I forgot what transpired in the last two books. But I told myse [...]

    22. The Rising - 3 Stars Here lies my dilemma with this book: I don't think I'm being fair with it. I'd had such high hopes for Darkness Rising series because I absolutely loved Darkest Powers series. Normally, I try not to compare books like that, even if they are by the same author, because if you really like one book, the other just isn't going to rise to the challenge, especially reading them back to back. This goes back to my "the sequel is never quite as good" principle. It's just that this se [...]

    23. After loving the first 2 books and recommending Kelley Armstrong to people as, "the best at YA supernatural romance," I was unhappily disappointed in this book. To begin with, a lot of the dialogue was just dumb. "Did she just call me cute?" "Did you just flirt with my boyfriend?" Give me a break.The whole conclusion where they decide to give in and surrender basically does seem like the smart thing to do but only because the scary enemies have been replaced by different family members that are [...]

    24. Kelly Armstrong is a great writer. That's why I can't bring myself to give this anything less than 4 stars. I just can't. The story is so darn well written!Guh.But I was terribly disappointed in the ending. Talk about going out with a Whimper instead of a Bang! Wow. Did that really happen? All I can say is that she's forgiven if she writes about these kids again once they are adults, becausee on!ally?Ok, ok. If you haven't read this yet, let me explain. Everything does get neatly tied up in the [...]

    25. so long to wait till Maya&Co meets Chloe&Co :(And I'm wondering - will the real action (lets hope destruction of Cabal clan:) begin in this last instalment, or maybe Kelley has another YA trilogy in mind?(my rating is based on The Darkest Powers trilogy and the first two of Darkness Rising trilogy, so, please, don't judge me for making assumptions ;) P.S. I think it's unfair that Darkness Rising trilogy has cooler superpowers than the Darkest Powers.After reading it:it's definitely not w [...]
