Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The sequel to Fade to Black and Before the Fall (both 2013) finds the towering city-state of Mahala under imminent siege by their powerful enemy, the Storad. This is bad news to Mahalans, of course, but it’s particularly bad news to Rojan Dizan, whom the Storad want dead. Another enemy, the Mishans, has offered to help some of the Mahalan higher-ups to safety, but they want something in exchange—two things, actually: Rojan and his sister, Lise, whose expertise in weaponry and magic would come in handy. But is this a good deal for Rojan, or a deadly deal? If none of the foregoing made a grain of sense, then you probably need to read the first two books in this series before tackling this one. If, on the other hand, you understood all that, then proceed with all haste to this book and devour it immediately. It’s powerfully written, with a beautifully realized dystopian world and some thoroughly engaging characters. --David Pitt

The city rises upwards not across. Those at the bottom, as you might imagine are rather downtrodden and rarely see light, or much of it anyway. Those at the top, in the clouds, are living on cloud nine; that would by the Ministry. You do Not cross the Ministry. Rojan freed the Downsiders from the Pit they resided in and when doing so he doomed the city to starvation unless he can do something about it. He may act like he doesn’t care about much but people are beginning to crack the code about him. Pain mages have been made legal in order to get the city running, which they must because they have an army at both their gates ready to pick the city apart should they fail. They desperately need power, and more pain mages to help.

There is a great deal about this novel that just works. It is a great last novel. The second novel was one of those typical build-up novels where nothing too much happens but it builds up in tension to this novel. So from the start we have a ‘situation’ and a lot of tension. In the last novel Rojan was betrayed by Dench, who now works for the army waiting outside of the city and has some rather hateful feelings towards Rojan now. Speaking in general terms though this novel has love found, friends lost and sacrifices made. All powerful concepts to include into a novel. So it is fast paced and powerful. The ending is perfect for the trilogy.

Worth getting to. Great read.

I have to admit that Last to Rise was a very anticipated novel for me. It is the third and as far as I know final book in a trilogy of books, which the first one was Fade to Black which came out back in January of this year. Yes an entire trilogy in a year. The book, as part of the trilogy is amazing. Everything is coming to a head, the Storad are at the gate; literally. Things are going to get much worse before they get better. The story is well handled and while there are new characters introduced. None shine as brightly as the characters who have been there from the beginning. I find myself at a loss when I talk about Last to Rise because with the trilogy over I mostly think about the trilogy as a whole. Nothing ends the way one might expect and I have to admit Last to Rise has one of the best Epilogues I’ve ever read. No matter what Francis Knight writes next, I definitely NEED to read it.

The Rojan Dizon series was always packed with dark emotion and barely contained rage, and I enjoyed every second of all 3 books.

Mild spoiler alert-

The worst thing I can say about this book is that it was predictable. But that's to be expected as the events have been building up for the past 2 books, and for Pasha, Jake, and Rojan, they're just too broken for redemption or salvation. The ending is sad but powerful, and Rojan finally gets the rest he wants and deserves.

Francis F. Knight has another strange background, a city built on the edge of a cliff and magic that requires pain to work. Mahala is under siege by enemies determined to destroy their new acceptance of the wizards of pain. Rojan Dizon apparently was responsible for the rise of these wizards in the first two books of this series. In Last to Rise ( paper from Orbit) he, not only has to find potential wizards, he has to find a way for his city to survive and face a major sacrifice himself. I’m thinking about reading the first two tales in this dark, albeit fun tale.Review Printed in Philadelphia Weekly Press

This is a strong ending to a inventive fantasy series with a vivid and unique world. You end up caring more and more for the characters as it progresses. A strong series end.
