The supernatural world in which Alexa Montgomery has found herself is on the brink of war. She is charged with the task of raising an army, defeating an evil dictator, and struggling to contain the bloodthirsty monster that lives within her.
These are things Alexa can handle, but when the person she loves most in the world takes a turn for the worst, Alexa's loyalty and determination will be tested in the most horrifying of ways. Will she be able to rise to the challenge, or will her love for her sister kill her once and for all?
"The Rise", book three of the Alexa Montgomery Saga, has definitely been the most heart wrenching of all the books in the Alexa Montgomery saga thus far. Alexa has to make some terribly tough decisions and has her heart broken more times that you can count in this one book. Her dedication and devotion to her sister, Nelly, is tested farther than can even be imagined and she makes some new allies in the mean time. Loyalties are tested all around and characters true natures are revealed. This book will constantly surprise you and will leave you reeling, unable to believe that certain things just happened. The book ends with a king who is hell bent on destroying anything that Alexa and Nelly hold dear.
