Some books should come with a warning: Main character to stupid to live.
Unfortunately, this book falls into that category.

Sorta spoiler, although it all happens in the first chapter, so reading it won't hurt much.

The main character starts the book by losing 317 friends and acquaintances, the gets knocked out, he wakes up in a van with the guy that killed all these people. We later find out he has the power to pretty much create a high powered laser from his body, that can pretty much destroy a persons soul and body. So what does he do? He punches the guy in an effort to escape. We also found out that he let the guy go because he doesn't want to kill anyone because in the past someone tried to kill him and he defended himself and killed his attacker, and has felt guilty about it ever since.

So he has no survival instinct, can't seem to get angry, and has angst issues. Oh, and to top it all off, his race and every other race like him has been hunted for several generations, but killing is bad, even if it might, just, be justified in a scenario.

Hero's like this irritate me.

I can honestly say that I've missed M.R. Merrick's fantastic world building and descriptive writing. I can also honestly say that I didn't miss the torture he puts his characters through. Unfortunately, you can't have one without the other and it only takes reading the first chapter of The Rise of Genesis to prove my point.

Ash Lawson is a hero, or at least he tries to be. He lives in a world where few know about the existence of supernatural beings and those that do want to harness their power. He also deals with the fact that his particular brand of supernatural being is hated by the others. To make matters worse, shortly after he's introduced to readers, his entire world is shattered and he ends up captured... and worse. Yeah, M.R. Merrick wins the #evilauthor prize for not wasting any time. Things are intense in The Rise of Genesis from the beginning to the end.

Of course I loved Ash, but the author didn't stop at him when it came to amazing characters. Tryst and Soren were among my favorites. They gave Ash a reason to fight as well as protect. Even the characters I hated in the beginning had their moments. Not enough to forgive them entirely, but Gage and Gareth had a few redeeming moments. There were those that I could never forgive though and I don't even have to mention them. Once you meet them, you'll understand.

As for the rest of the story... I can't do it justice by trying to explain. There were so many levels to this world, but then that came as no surprise. Merrick is a master at world building, which he proved in The Protector series. His supernatural beings have their own twist and the different levels of the world he created look on a life of their own in The Rise of Genesis. The characters, with a few exceptions, are not entirely good or evil.

When I want good fantasy, this is the author I choose. I guess because his fantasy is always based, in some way, with the world I know. It never stays in that world but it's enough that I don't get lost. This books is no exception.

Ash Lawson is an angel in a world where supernaturals are hunted and angels are distrusted...even despised. Always on the run and trying to help his fellow supernaturals, he's devastated by a loss that hits him hard. In his weakened state, he's captured and sent to become a tool for the government, like he would though. But not everyone or everything is as it appears. Wading through who to trust and who to fight, Ash must recover from his losses and find a way out of a "school" even an angel can't escape.

I love Ash. He has a big heart and even bigger doubts about himself. Trying to make the right decisions, he makes mistake after mistake. But he doesn't want to hurt those that he's learned to trust and care about. He's in an impossible circumstance and I admire his strength and conviction. No doubt I was cheering him on and hoping a miracle would happen.

The friends Ash makes along the way were easy to love. Tryst is amazing. Strong yet wary, she wants to stay away from Ash and his overwhelming problems. She's lived in captivity safely for awhile and there's no point risking what she has. Yet what she has is captivity. It takes her some time to figure that out and to decide what she's willing to risk. Her desire to protect Soren is sweet and I loved her more for it.

And Soren. Oh, Soren. So love him. His nature is tender but he holds so much strength. The secret he keeps even from Tryst and his desire to take care of her had me falling in love with him.
