Armstrong, you re fantastic Just to get this out of the way DEREK AND CHLOE AND SIMON AND TORI SHOWED UP AND EVERYTHING WAS BEAUTIFUL The only reason why I did rate this book 4 stars instead of five was that it, surprisingly, started out slow for me The first 70 or so pages were kind of lagging The last half of the book, however, was everything I could ve hoped for Add a cup of action, a tablespoon of suspense, a teaspoon of sadness, a dash of romance, a group of characters who were fascinatingly realistic, and you ve got Darkness Rising all measures are approximated I don t know how to bake This book s ending, while somewhat bittersweet, was the best way it could have ended All the characters seemedor less happy, and the last chapter was beyond adorable I have to admit, love triangles suck most of the time, and I was a little tentative about the choice Maya seemed to be making But I m completely on board with the choice she made in the end and I couldn t have asked for a better boyfriend For Maya to have a better boyfriend NOT MINE Because reaching into a book and grabbing the character you ve fallen in love and making him marry you is impossible because they re fictional characters sulks away In all seriousness, this was a great book We met some new characters, we reunited with some old characters, and everything was wonderful There was a sense of closure at the end, and while the circumstances might not have been completely ideal, the characters were happy which of course makes me happy and makes me want them to be my friends WHY CAN T THEY BE MY FRIENDS Love this book and love Kelley Armstrong It was a crazy, wild ride while it lasted Thank you for a lovely trilogy P.S Where can I find a Daniel or a Rafe AFTER READING This book is most definitely the best book in the series So much happens in this book, many questions do get answered, and,yes, we get to see are friends from Darkest Powers again Was there anything I didn t like about this book Not really, but there are some things that I wish we got to seeof.1 Our friends from Darkest Powers.They only appeared during the last 1 4 of the book While I don t like how they weren t in the book as often as I hoped, I understand We have al AFTER READING This book is most definitely the best book in the series So much happens in this book, many questions do get answered, and,yes, we get to see are friends from Darkest Powers again Was there anything I didn t like about this book Not really, but there are some things that I wish we got to seeof.1 Our friends from Darkest Powers.They only appeared during the last 1 4 of the book While I don t like how they weren t in the book as often as I hoped, I understand We have already heard their story and it is now Maya s turn.What I didn t like was how they were there but not mentioned, so you were left wondering if they were there or not that probably didn t make sense.2 The powers.We obviously got a grip on Maya s powers, but I din t see many examples of powers The powers were explained rather than told Sure, we saw Daniel s and Corey s powers, but not often The major problem I had is that Haley s and Nicole s powers weren t really shown.Those were the only problems I had in this book.And now I must say goodbye to this seriesand Darkest Powers BEFORE READING One of my ultimate favorite series is The Darkest Powers TrilogyBut I felt that it ended way too soonThen I heard rumors that in the new series Darkness Rising the two stories would mergeSo I read The Gathering and got disappointedThen I read The Callingand that s where the conflicting emotions come inThe Calling ended in a way that definitely hinted that our friends from Darkest Powers might make a return crosses fingers I literally cried of happiness when I read the ending no joke but then I realized.THIS BOOK COMES OUT AFTER THE WORLD ENDS cries tears of sadness EDIT IT SHOWS CHLOE ON THE CHARACTERS LIST does happy dance EDIT OH MY HOLY DONUTS THERE S A COVER AND A RELEASE DATE faints For the first time EVER I m hoping for a love triangle in the third book.I love Daniel For the first time EVER I m hoping for a love triangle in the third book.I love Daniel Why am I being punished for being a loyal fan who reads books as soon as they come out 2013 Yep, you ve seen that right I gave 3 stars to the last book in one of my top fav trilogy of all time, and also to one of my fav authors I also gave 3 stars to a book i have been anticipating and dying to read for about a year Disappointment won t describe how i feel,like shock And i don t mean shock in a good kind of way My hopes and believe in the author went straight to hell It was like being slapped in the face, man For those who don t knowThe Rising is book 3 in the Dark Yep, you ve seen that right I gave 3 stars to the last book in one of my top fav trilogy of all time, and also to one of my fav authors I also gave 3 stars to a book i have been anticipating and dying to read for about a year Disappointment won t describe how i feel,like shock And i don t mean shock in a good kind of way My hopes and believe in the author went straight to hell It was like being slapped in the face, man For those who don t knowThe Rising is book 3 in the Darkness Rising Trilogy You HAVE to read them in order, from 1 3, because they do relate and you won t know, and understand things if you read them separately The trilogy is about a group of supernatural teens who s life s are turned upside down They find out they re experiments and try to escape after an incident happens But the people who are after them, won t stop until they capture them again And it s not just the guys who were experimenting on them, other scientists and similar groups, want them too.I was expecting so muchfrom this book I was expecting true awesomeness But it turned out to be just enough enjoyable to keep on reading It wasn t as gripping as the previous books It didn t make me squeal in excitement every time i got to a knew page or chapter In my opinion the characters changed a bit I can t believe i m going to say this, but they were so stupid sometimes i wanted to punch them in the face For example We have this scene where Maya is with, we will call him h , in a shop, and then these bunch of drunk people come inside Things start to get hot, they offend Maya, and h decides to protect her So he s ready to take a swing at them, but then Maya is like I m going to grab some chocolate, do you want some too And i m like Are you ACTUALLY kidding me There were so many things i didn t like, i don t want to give to much away, so i will just mention a couple of things i kinda hated.We have another situation where Maya finally meets this guy He look familiar, and Daniel asks him questions that should give her a freaking big clue about who the hell he is But no Maya has to freaking have it written on a freaking piece of paper calm, deep breath And the situation that ruined the whole book for me I absolutely DESPISED it, and it got me so frustrated that i swear i couldn t even freaking see straight In the previous books the teens actually run away from the bad guys, because they actually want to be free and not be locked up in a freaking cage like animals But in this one Some of them LIKED being captured NONE of them fought back They just gave in I would have killed everyone if i had the powers they had, and if that was what it took At least i wouldn t listen to them I would say for them to go fuck themselves Show a little dignity and rebellion kids With that said, there were some things i really liked too I absolutely LOVED the suspense and action And the thing i adored the most, was being able to read about Derek, Chloe and Simon again We first meet them in a different trilogy The Summoning I almost fainted when i first had a gimps of Derek in this book Let s talk about the ending I have a question What.The.Hell.Was.That Whilst the whole trilogy did have a nice conclusion, the love triangle between Maya, Daniel and Rafe sure as heck didn t I wouldn t even call that a conclusionlike rushing things and ruing readers lives view spoiler I can t believe Maya chose Daniel And even thought i m ok with it i m disappointed yet again There was love between her and Rafe There was danger and it wasn t boring They had something special You can t just break that with a click of your finger Kelley Armstrong That adds up to a badly written love triangle, and it was not realistic hide spoiler Overall, The Rising was definitely no what i was expecting and hoping for It was the first time Kelley Armstrong disappointed me, and i hope it ll be the last if she decides to write a new series trilogy and i decide to pick it up The Rising Darkness Rising 3 , Kelley

Review After the events of The Calling , Maya, Daniel and Corey are in Vancouver on the run They try to track down help and end up accidentally in contact with Bullet Review That was AWFUL Running around for 400 billion pages, all the info dumping, all the prolonged action sequences, all the forced romance because EVERYONE has to tell us about Team Daniel as the two have ZERO chemistry for THAT SHIT ENDING NO STARS.Full review to come when I am done doing damage to this waste of paper.Full Review After the events of The Calling , Maya, Daniel and Corey are in Vancouver on the run They try to track down help and end up accidentally in contact with Ashton Ash , Maya s brother They run around some , then decide the best way to get help is to drag back the kids from Darkest Powers, in between going to visit her grandmother for no reason , going to their funeral amounts to nothing , getting captured, escaping and on and on and so forth.At this point, I m sure people are thinking that I just hate read this trilogy I did not I actually liked Darkest Powers I liked Armstrong But when I started reading The Gathering , I was astounded at how paper thin the plot was How forced the character interactions were How lame the romance was And it never got better than what I saw in The Gathering Now that I ve finished the trilogy, I don t know whether to laugh maniacally or burst into tears.I was never a fan of the characters I thought they were all pretty meh Sure, I appreciate how Maya is wayindependent than, say, Bella Swan or most other YA heroines But this book doesn t endear meto any of the characters we ve supposedly gotten to know better All the characters seem to be variations of snarky teen MayaRafeCoreyHayleyAshton Oh god, Ashton What an obnoxious p % I hated how he was so overprotective and creepy for a sister he just barely met Stop policing Maya s actions, a hole What characters aren t snarky teens are just so boring Daniel Nicole Even the reappearance of the Darkest Powers kids can t save the book and if you are reading to see them don t , as they seem to be merely caricatures of their former selves But even as caricatures, they are STILL better than the characters created for this trilogy What wasobnoxious somehow than the characters themselves was how in this book, Armstrong gave up on Team Rafe and decided to have every character try to promote Team Daniel Numerous times, from every character, we are told how intimate and close Maya and Daniel are, how they aren t friends, how they read as dating, Hey, get your boyfriend off me what do you mean he s not your boyfriend and I m just tilting my head in bewilderment I never once read any sort of sexual chemistry between Maya and Daniel, and further, why the flying frak do they have to be romantic partners in the first place Why is it when a woman shows concern for a male friend, it has to be a romantic relationship This is not to say I was Team Rafe, BTW, just that I buy Team Rafethan Team Daniel But this show don t tell is pretty much systematic problem of the entire trilogy Nothing is learned organically no one investigates the information just falls into people s laps like a cat who vomits on you Need to have Corey find out about his superpower He does it offscreen and then when there s no action, dumps all the information on Daniel and Maya Need to fill the audience in on the Darkest Powers events Infodump from Calvin Antone and Maya relating what she read from the convenient data the author gave her Then we have the constant movement, the constant action, as if Armstrong is trying desperately to hide the fact that there isn t enough story to necessitate a 3 book, 300 page long series I love action as much as the next girl, but geez, a good 3 4 of the events could have been omitted such as the romp to visit Maya s grandma , and nothing would have been lost For instance, the diversion to Grandma s house gave us nothing They sneak to her house, meet her, learn nothing, meet no new people, get chased back to the mainland All it does is stretch out the book so it could fill the page quota That is all.But the cherry of sorts on this pile of elephant excrement is the absolute crap ending I can t detail how awful and painful it is, as it would probably be spoilery, but suffice to say we spend 3 books building to this moment and end up almost exactly where we started The negotations last one paragraph, and everything is suddenly hunky dory except for that threat of another trilogy to wrap up what should have been wrapped up here Meaning, I basically spent all the money on 3 books and the time reading for NOTHING.No wonder people hate reading No wonder people only read a book when they are on a plane I would give up on reading if all I was doing was tuning into one massive infodump after another, with boring characters, forced interactions, endless action scenes, capped off by an ending that made the entire trilogy pointless Hell, I m so dejected at the end of this trilogy, I m halfway to quitting reading myself And I ve basically been reading since second grade.A while back, I read a book, Arclight, that kinda broke me and my love of reading It wasn t terrible , but it was just all the various things about reading that I despised that I kinda wanted to quit reading forever.This book is worse than that It s worse, because it was pointless It s worse, because it tries to conceal its problems with plot and characters with endless action and chase sequences It s worse because it sets up one relationship with actual chemistry but then uses its characters to TELL us how amazing another one a virtually platonic one is.It s worse because after reading this book, I don t know that I can go back and read any of Armstrong s books.I don t read to hate books I don t write reviews to hate on books or authors I write the above out of frustration and despair Most of the books I was so sure I d love, I seem to end up feeling meh about or hating And who wants to do any hobby that they hate Please excuse me while I go cry into my pillow I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK If I had to choose only one book to read in 2013 it would have to be this one I have waited two years to see Chloe, Derek, Simon, and Tori again I loved those guys, and while I was happy with the ending, I was not satisfied Darkness Rising has been a good series I love Rafe and Maya together and I love Daniel as well I like the characters a lot in Darkness rising, but this trilogy doesn t have the amazing plots that Darkest Powers did I loved t I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK If I had to choose only one book to read in 2013 it would have to be this one I have waited two years to see Chloe, Derek, Simon, and Tori

longer to get into each book.I have really really really high hopes for this book, and I know that Kelley Armstrong will not disappoint Can t wait for April 2013 On a side note, I also absolutely love all of the covers for both trilogies They are just plan awesome UPDATE 11 16 12THE SUMMARY I WANT TO READ THIS SO BAD All they have is the name and number of somebody who can help them That is totally going to lead them to Chloe and Derek I m so excited, I can hardly wait for it to come out Just fivemonthsUPDATE 12 25 12Slowly but surely the release date is approaching Slowly but surely..WHY IS IT NOT APRIL YET I NEED THIS BOOK I read this for Derek and Chloe But even they couldn t resuscitate my interest in this series Bleh.

could have been omitted such as the romp to visit Maya s grandma , and nothing would have been lost For instance, the diversion to Grandma s house gave us nothing They sneak to her house, meet her, learn nothing, meet no new people, get chased back to the mainland All it does is stretch out the book so it could fill the page quota That is all.But the cherry of sorts on this pile of elephant excrement is the absolute crap ending I can t detail how awful and painful it is, as it would probably be spoilery, but suffice to say we spend 3 books building to this moment and end up almost exactly where we started The negotations last one paragraph, and everything is suddenly hunky dory except for that threat of another trilogy to wrap up what should have been wrapped up here Meaning, I basically spent all the money on 3 books and the time reading for NOTHING.No wonder people hate reading No wonder people only read a book when they are on a plane I would give up on reading if all I was doing was tuning into one massive infodump after another, with boring characters, forced interactions, endless action scenes, capped off by an ending that made the entire trilogy pointless Hell, I m so dejected at the end of this trilogy, I m halfway to quitting reading myself And I ve basically been reading since second grade.A while back, I read a book, Arclight, that kinda broke me and my love of reading It wasn t terrible , but it was just all the various things about reading that I despised that I kinda wanted to quit reading forever.This book is worse than that It s worse, because it was pointless It s worse, because it tries to conceal its problems with plot and characters with endless action and chase sequences It s worse because it sets up one relationship with actual chemistry but then uses its characters to TELL us how amazing another one a virtually platonic one is.It s worse because after reading this book, I don t know that I can go back and read any of Armstrong s books.I don t read to hate books I don t write reviews to hate on books or authors I write the above out of frustration and despair Most of the books I was so sure I d love, I seem to end up feeling meh about or hating And who wants to do any hobby that they hate Please excuse me while I go cry into my pillow I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK If I had to choose only one book to read in 2013 it would have to be this one I have waited two years to see Chloe, Derek, Simon, and Tori again I loved those guys, and while I was happy with the ending, I was not satisfied Darkness Rising has been a good series I love Rafe and Maya together and I love Daniel as well I like the characters a lot in Darkness rising, but this trilogy doesn t have the amazing plots that Darkest Powers did I loved t I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK If I had to choose only one book to read in 2013 it would have to be this one I have waited two years to see Chloe, Derek, Simon, and Tori

characters a lot in Darkness rising, but this trilogy doesn t have the amazing plots that Darkest Powers did I loved those books from the first page, while in this trilogy it has definitely taken me longer to get into each book.I have really really really high hopes for this book, and I know that Kelley Armstrong will not disappoint Can t wait for April 2013 On a side note, I also absolutely love all of the covers for both trilogies They are just plan awesome UPDATE 11 16 12THE SUMMARY I WANT TO READ THIS SO BAD All they have is the name and number of somebody who can help them That is totally going to lead them to Chloe and Derek I m so excited, I can hardly wait for it to come out Just fivemonthsUPDATE 12 25 12Slowly but surely the release date is approaching Slowly but surely..WHY IS IT NOT APRIL YET I NEED THIS BOOK I read this for Derek and Chloe But even they couldn t resuscitate my interest in this series Bleh.
