Marley’s determination and ability to work with her ex boyfriend, despite what he did to her, show her strength of character. She trains herself to be very kick-ass and dependent on nobody. Her transformation into a warrior is inspiring. Gage initially suspects she’s the villain, but after they get to know each other and understand more about the other person’s mission, they join forces and explore their sexual attraction. The question is, will Marley, Gage and their friends be able to defeat a rogue Goddess who has more at stake than anybody ever dreamed?
The third book in Damschroder’s Goddesses Rising series proves that third time is a charm. Granted, in my opinion the first two books were pretty charmed as well! I really enjoyed the worldbuilding in this series. Never too much or too little. I think a reader’s experience would be enhanced by reading these in order, but you may be able to pick one up and follow along anyway.
Damschroder has a way with action scenes and creating a very cinematic vision in a reader’s head. The pacing and adventure element also remind me of such TV shows as Supernatural, Lost Girl and Grimm. The romance plays an influential part in the storyline and is balanced by character development. When secondary characters from other books appear, it never feels like “character pimping” as all elements fit together to form a very readable whole.
Recommended for fans of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and sf/f adventure novels.
I really liked the plot of Sunroper. While it does stand on its own, it also combines everything from the previous two books, builds on it, and brings everything to a close. Marley is trying to track down the most powerful goddess the Society has ever known (and also kicked out). Rumor has it that her power source is the Sun, making her energy limitless. We've already learned from Quinn that hanging on to too much can be deadly, so Marley thinks she can help her too while also saving the world from evil boys with stolen powers.
Of course, there is also a romance at the center of Sunroper. Gage is also after the goddess doling out her power, since he suspects his brother is involved. He knows this can be dangerous, especially with the history of mental illness in his family, so he wants to stop his brother before the power can trigger anything that might be in him. Obviously he has to run into Marley since they have the same goals, and they're immediately attracted to one another. Much like Riley and Sam, they're running on adrenaline which develops their feelings that much faster. I'd say these two have the sexiest scenes of the three couples.
Sunroper was a pretty great ending to the series. Marley was definitely my favorite of the leading ladies, since she's been through so much, but doesn't let it get her down. She's owning up to her mistakes and is doing her best to set it all right. The ending is a bit sudden though. I would have liked an epilogue that shows what Marley is up to now that her mission is complete.
