Image of Rise: A Nightshade Novel

Cremer is back with an all-new Nightshade book, her sequel to Rift. Although filled with great action scenes and wonderful characters, this reviewer was a bit disappointed. While Rise’s plot is totally amazing, it falls short when tying up with the Nightshade series, especially as it lacks the romantic elements that Cremer is so good at.

Conatus is at risk, and there is only one person who can save it. But what happens when Ember and Barrow want to escape their world? Who can truly win in the war between love and magic? These lovebirds are about to find out. When their plan is jeopardized, Ember is forced to return to Alistair. Can Ember save everyone she cares about and stop what is to come? After all, it is she who starts the Witch’s War. (PHILMOEL, Jan., 464 pp., $18.99, ISBN: 9780399159602, HC, 14 & Up)
