Rise by Anna Carey Review

Rise (Eve, #3)
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Harper Collins
Source: Bought
Third and final book in the Eve series
How far will you go when you have nothing left to lose?
When she lost her soul mate, Caleb, Eve felt like her world had ended. Trapped in the palace, forced to play the part of the happy, patriotic princess of The New America—and the blushing bride of her father's top adviser—Eve's whole life is a lie. The only thing that keeps her going is Caleb's memory, and the revolution he started.
Now, Eve is taking over where Caleb left off. With the help of Moss, an undercover subversive in the King's court, she plots to take down The New America, beginning with the capital, the City of Sand. Will Eve be able to bring about a new, free world when she's called upon to perform the ultimate act of rebellion—killing her father?
In Rise, Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight as Anna Carey's epic tale of romance and sacrifice in the chilling dystopia of The New America comes to a stunning conclusion.

This wasn't really what I was expecting. But in a good way. It had a lot of new elements to the series that I really enjoyed. 

This concludes Eve's story. She's lost the one thing she truly loved. Now she's determined to continue what she started. But you can't live two lives at the same time. 

Eve was probably at her best in this one. She was very self sacrificing and strong. She knew what she had to do and was determined to succeed. I loved how caring she was. I missed some of the characters from the past books. We only got to see a couple. But, we did get lots of new characters to love. 

Out of the whole series this had the best storyline. It never slowed down. It never ceased to surprise me. I loved the different setting and atmosphere. I loved how gritty and dark it was. It fit into the series but was very much it's own story. Overall I'm very sad to say goodbye to this series. It couldn't have had a better ending though. It definitely went out with a bang!
