My Review

5/5 Stars

Compelling and powerful, Rise of the Immortals pulls you in from the very first page.

A story of good versus evil, ghosts, and magic come together to tell a powerful story full of vivid details and imagery. Though it is a fantasy novel, the author did a great job of introducing everything and everyone without long info dumps or bits of exposition. Important details were easily worked into the story, slowly building up the fantastic world her characters find themselves in.

I especially loved the magic system.

Josse and Leonne, the two main characters, are their own bit of fantastic, and I loved the way the author built the trust between them.

This book is a fantastic choice for fans of dark fantasy.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
