Rising was an exquisite conclusion to the Slay Quartet! This series was masterfully written. It was a journey of penance, redemption, and finding one’s true self against all odds.

This series illustrates the remarkable talent and determination of the author. To write a story featuring one of the most hated characters we’ve ever met and transform her into a character that we admired, encouraged, and rooted for in the end, that takes a lot of guts. To echo the words of the author: this story definitely needed to be written.

I absolutely HATED Celia after reading The Fixed Trilogy. I know I wasn’t the only one who felt this way. But after finally reading her story, and finally understanding the why behind all the devious and callous actions and words, I can genuinely appreciate the new, and much more lovable, version of Celia. You won’t find many stories out there (at least, not many that I’ve read) that feature the female lead as needing absolution. That’s why this story uniquely stands on it own. Edward may have been the one manipulating and coercing Celia throughout the story, but it was exactly what she needed. And in turn, Edward did his own soul searching, discovering that by changing Celia, he too changed for the better. They couldn’t be more perfect for each other…the dragon and the devil.

Rising, along with the entire quartet, was pure brilliance! The character development, the architectural plot, and the gamut of emotions all combine to create an unbelievably fascinating and exquisite love story. This must-read series is 100% binge-worthy and one you will truly never forget!

5 Stars!

Together, we brought down powerful men.

Now we have a chance to start over. To be the family neither of us ever had, to leave the past in the past where it belongs. Edward has a choice to make.

It will decide if we fall into the flames–or rise together.
