Summary: How far will you go when you have nothing left to lose?

When 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.

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed both Eve and Once so I was looking forward to this one. And I wasn't disappointed. We start the book off with Eve’s new life. She’s married to Charles and Caleb is dead. She’s in mourning but can’t be too forward about it since she’s supposed to be happy with Charles now.

Eve is working with Moss to take her father down. She has a lot of challenges ahead of her but she knows she can fight them. She’s a strong girl and very motivated. If anything, she’s motivated by Caleb’s death alone. She must make it so it actually meant something.

Eve ends up helping the girls from the school and there were some sad moments. A few of them I didn’t see coming and it hurt  a lot. I felt Eve’s pain. I felt what she had to go through. We are introduced to new characters and some of our old ones are gone, which was sad.

And the ending, whoa. I didn’t see it coming but I had hoped throughout the book that it would. This one kind of seemed stretched out to me but in a good way. It probably could have been shorter  but I liked reading about Eve and what she was going through, so I liked the extra stuff.

Overall: I really enjoyed this one. I’m sad to see this series ending, as I liked it a lot and read all the books as they came out. I still really like Eve as a character and Caleb-yummy.

Cover: Like it. These covers are always really pretty.
