How far will you go when you have nothing left to lose? hen she lost her soul mate, Caleb, Eve felt like her world had ended. Trapped in the palace, forced to play the part of the happy, patriotic princess of The New America—and the blushing bride of her father's top adviser—Eve's whole life is a lie. The only thing that keeps her going is Caleb's memory, and the revolution he started. Now, Eve is taking over where Caleb left off. With the help of Moss, an undercover subversive in the King's court, she plots to take down The New America, beginning with the capital, the City of Sand. Will Eve be able to bring about a new, free world when she's called upon to perform the ultimate act of rebellion—killing her father? In Rise, Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight as Anna Carey's epic tale of romance and sacrifice in the chilling dystopia of The New America comes to a stunning conclusion.

There are those series I adore and sing their praises, and then there are those I stick with and finish out of a strong, morbid curiosity. After liking Eve well enough, but getting extremely irritated at Once, I had a feeling Rise would either sit very well with me, or make me want to throw somethi...
Still uncertain how angry this book made me. Review to come. Edit 6/20:This review is also posted at The Bawdy Book Blog. Let me preface this review by saying that Rise could easily have been a 3-star book for me, as I could have overlooked at lot of the items below I'm going to point out. Except...
I always expect a huge finish at the end of a series and I have to admit, I was a little disappointed in the ending of this one.
