Book Review: Rise by Anna Carey

Rise (Eve #3) by Anna Carey
Genre: Young Adult (Dystopian Romance)
Date Published: April 2, 2013
Publisher: Harper Collins

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. 

Rise is the third and final book in the Eve Trilogy by Anna Carey. Eve is an amazing character. Through the whole trilogy, she's done what she felt was right no matter what. She sees people for what they are. She doesn't lump them as just good or bad, because she sees the good and bad in everyone. That being said, she sees the big picture about them as well. With Caleb gone, she has so much to handle, and it's a rough road for her. There will be more losses, more gains and a few surprises along the way. This was a very entertaining trilogy. I was sad to see it end, but I was very happy with how it all turned out.
