Rise (Eve #3) by Anna Carey

Rise (Eve, #3)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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 rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rise (Eve, #3)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This is book 3 in the ‘Eve’ series.
Eve is married to Charles and told that Caleb is dead. She isn’t about to let this stop her and her plans though – to kill her father, and take down the new America.
Can Eve really take down the new America? Can she save the girls from the schools? And can she ever find happiness again?

This was a great end to the series, and definitely my favourite of the three.

I liked how strong Eve was in this book, and how she tried to take charge and really make a difference. The way she carried on and made the best of things, even in difficult situations was great, and I really liked her attitude and drive.

I liked the storyline in this book, and for me it was my favourite of the series. I found this book to be very different from the first, and although there were a couple of really stupid plot holes lurking, the book was actually a really good read.
There wasn’t a lot of romance in this book, as even though Eve married Charles she wasn’t in love with him, and remained faithful to Caleb, even though he was dead. (Spoiler - Highlight to view -
Her pregnancy wasn’t a shock at all either, as it was pretty obvious in book 2 that she was pregnant. I thought she coped pretty well with this really though. )

The ending was also good, and I was so pleased by what we discovered right at the end – something that I had been hoping for all book! This was pretty predictable really though.
Overall; a good and satisfying end to the series.
8 out of 10.
