The Rising (Darkness Rising, #3) by Kelley Armstrong
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.
I was a bit wary entering this book, I loved the series and I feared that 405 pages couldn’t possibly tie up all the knots and conclude the series in a manner in which it deserved.
I was wrong. Very wrong. 405 pages packed a lot of action, emotion and awesome storytelling. Everything I could have wanted and more.
New characters were introduced, and some reunions with old characters took place. I love how Armstrong’s series intertwine perfectly with one another. Her YA works show a glimpse into the characters that are present in the Otherworld series. Darkness Rising mingled with the world and character of Darkest Powers. I loved it.
This is one of my favourite books by Armstrong. It had every component readers have come to expect from her: romance, adventure, humour, supernatural elements and thrills and chills.
This book provided a sense of closure for the characters we have grown to love. Situations and circumstances aren’t exactly idea, but nonetheless, everyone seems to be at a good place in the final book. That is all a reader can ask for, right? For their beloved characters to be safe and happy.
PS: I hope this storyline gets picked up for a television series.
