Book Description

In the stunning conclusion to Anna Carey's epic tale of romance and sacrifice, Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight in her final stand against the New America.

When Eve lost her soul mate, Caleb, she felt like her world ended. Now, trapped in the palace, as a reluctant bride and unhappy princess, Eve's entire life is a lie.

The only thing that keeps her going is Caleb's memory—and the revolution he started. Eve plots to destroy the New America, beginning with the capital, the City of Sand. Will she be able to bring about a new, free world when she's called upon to perform the ultimate act of rebellion—killing her father, the King?



Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Eve trilogy finale finds Eve, the king of New America’s daughter, in an unwilling marriage to her father’s employee Charles. She’s still mourning true-love Caleb and discovers she’s carrying his child—and she’s resolute in helping the rebel uprising. But when plans go awry, Eve, her friend Clara, and some girls they free from the king’s nefarious school initiative, escape and face dangers and difficulties on the path to new beginnings. Though some elements throughout may stretch believability, this dystopia offers descriptively detailed fantasy-futuristic elements and builds suspense, and Eve’s continuing experiences—and the concluding twist—will be welcomed by series followers. Grades 10-12. --Shelle Rosenfeld

Review

“A gripping, unforgettable adventure—and a fresh look at what it means to love.” (Lauren Kate, New York Times bestselling author of FALLEN on EVE)

“A thoughtful, heart–wrenching, and romantic book that I inhaled in one sitting.” (Cynthia Hand, New York Times bestselling author of HALLOWED on ONCE)

“…this dystopia offers descriptively detailed fantasy–futuristic elements and builds suspense, and Eve’s continuing experiences—and the concluding twist—will be welcomed by series followers.” (Booklist)

I'll start by saying this is the first time I've written a review about anything I've bought on Amazon.I first read Eve years ago and fell in love with the story. Dystopian star-crossed lovers story? Count me in. The first books were so riveting. The constant danger, the action, the romance. I eagerly awaited the final installment.

I was slightly disappointed by the book from the beginning (no spoilers, I promise). It went in a strange direction and much of the book was taken up by tedium. I missed the romance between
Eve and Caleb-a romance, I know realize, was the primary force behind the trilogy. Without it, this book stagnates. I put all of that aside, though, until I finished the book. The end of the final book can make or break a series.

I was incredibly surprised by how fast the ending came. Eve was thrown in every which directions. In the last 5% of the book (Kindle doesn't do page numbers), Eve is in four different scenes and makes two huge discoveries. Barely any time was spent explaining how previous events had lead up to what Eve saw before her. All that could have been okay, if the final pages just had a clincher of some sort. I wish I could say that they had, but....no. The book just ended. I flipped to the next page, but all I saw were the acknowledgements. I flipped back to the ending. Then back to the acknowledgments. Then I realized that the book had ended.

I've been an avid reader ever since I was five. I've read books whose endings made me laugh, cry, and sit down and made me think for awhile. Rise did none of the above. It just made me upset that the story that I had followed for so long didn't have any more to give me. The ending soured everything for me. If you don't think you would mind the abrupt ending, then by all
means, purchase this book. However, if you're looking for a well-rounded dystopian trilogy, I would suggest the Matched or Hunger Games trilogies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book-3 stars; Trilogy-4 stars April 2, 2013
By KVB99
Format:Hardcover
Book: I was a little disappointed in this book. After Once, there were so many interesting storylines: Caleb's death, the marriage to Charles, Moss, the need for Eve to kill her father. Coming into Rise, I was licking my lips. Can't miss, right? But IMO, this a bit of a belly flop. Eve is a good character and the writing is decent, but the plot is too brain dead. One big example is that all of the foregoing storylines terminate a third of the way into the book as the author inserts an utterly pointless road journey back to Califia, only to have Eve immediately return to palace. What did we just do here? And then we have the army of the Colonies. First, they decide not to help and then they decide to help, and we really never understand what the frack is going on with this thing. It really smacks of deus ex machine...that is, I'm a lazy author. And then there's the ending. Talk about pulling a rabbit out of the hat. I began to suspect this was coming about halfway through, but I thought no way would the author jump off that implausible cliff. That would be story suicide. But there it is. Seppuku.

Trilogy: Eve was an awesome book--great character, great dystopia, romance--it really worked. Once wasn't quite as good, but still a solid, 4 star read IMO. Alas, Rise didn't appeal to me any where near as much. I was a little disappointed in the plot and I thought it dragged down the series a bit. But I would still recommend the trilogy. Overall, it is entertaining.

2.0 out of 5 stars Warning: the end is SO disappointing... :( July 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Please know that I NEVER write bad reviews! I will highlight every good point in a book and, typically, veil any disappointment I have, knowing that everyone has different opinions... but I have to say something about the ending of the series. NO SPOILERS, I promise:
I so loved the first two books of the Eve series and even liked most of the last book. The last chapters or so were rushed, but it was the abrupt ending that absolutely ruined the entire series for me. I am so sad that the author ended it this way. It just came off as if she had a deadline and needed to rush the ending (or couldn't think of how to "voice" it). We, the readers, are left bereft of closure, kept from experiencing it, and have to be content with just the narrative that closure was going to happen.

Please read this series, as they are wonderful, overall, but just be prepared for the abrupt ending. I wish I would have been warned!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst. Ending. Ever. July 1, 2013
Format:Hardcover
Such an anticipatory book, I'd been waiting for Rise to release for what felt like decades (but okay, it was only one year, let me have my moment!), when I went on vacation and my friend brought it with her. I took my opportunity to read the most disappointing series finale ever.

That's a harsh statement to make about a book and I 100% own it. But I have my reasons and they start with books one and two. I was slightly intrigued and yet indifferent with Eve, the first book in the series, but I saw the great potential this trilogy had and eagerly awaited for book two. Eve grew so much in book two, Once, that I just ended up loving the series, especially with the mega cliff-hanger ending of Once, where we find out she is not only a School refugee, but also the King's daughter - and then they marry her off to Charles! I had had a feeling she was royal, but it didn't make me love the plot set up for book three, Rise, any less. So I wanted to find out what happened next!

Rise had great potential, but I do think it fell flat, mostly with the ending, which I will try super-hard not to spoil for you, but discuss at the same time. You can beat me if I ruin it for you. I give you permission.

Rise is all about the rebellion, like any good dystopian should be. Rise up and stand for what is right and you believe in! But Eve spent more of her time worrying about her own self than she did about the others around her. (K, I'm probably being a little unfair here... she cared pretty hard about the girls in the Schools, so I'll give her a pass - sort of.) Jebus, Eve, what kind of heroine are you?! You are a fail!

~Charles

He really could have had more page time.
