Arise: Review

From Goodreads:
With power comes the responsibility to accept its consequences.

After the betrayal of those closest to her, Eviana Dumahl struggles to cope with her new reality. Kidnapped, broken, and confused, she is forced to engage in a war that will alter merfolk politics forever. With her estranged father leading the charge, Eviana has no choice but to stand by his side. Her continued existence hinges on the acceptance of the power growing inside her, even when that means embracing the family’s dark lineage.

Kain Matthew will sacrifice the world for Eviana. And he is not alone. As time runs out, her friends fight to save her life and theirs. An unlikely alliance gives them the edge they need to take a stand, although it keeps Eviana's heart trapped in the past. A new discovery explains some of her previous mistakes, but it may not be enough to stop her father's plans. Merfolk, selkies, and water sprites work together to save their kind, only in this final battle, not everyone will survive.

In the striking series conclusion, Eviana will learn the true meaning of power, sacrifice, and love. 

My Review:
yeah, this was such a great and fantastic book! I loved it so much, it was the perfect ending to this series, so much happens, and I just loved reading it! I've enjoyed this series so much, and this book, well, yeah, again, perfect ending!

I was planning on reading this book later then I did, to read it closer to when this review was posting. But after the ending of Betrayal, well, man, I just had to read this book! And yeah, that need was just all consuming! Which just speaks to how great this series, these books, are!

This is the book where we get the answers. What's going on, who's truly behind everything, and yeah, Eviana is held captive by the bad guys, which means that we get to see a different side of the characters, which was really great!

The ending was just perfect. There were losses, which kinda has to happen, unless it's Breaking Dawn, and that hardly ever happens! But there was also the triumph of winning the battle, winning the war, and the right side having done so. So that was really great!

I just enjoyed this book, this series so much! Can't wait to read more books by Amber Garr!
