    Extremely fast paced action, desperation, insanity, loss, and love

    I don't how Gordon always catches me off guard! Maybe because she keeps me up reading all night. The Rise is a masterful blend of heart racing action, fear, betrayal, and unyielding love.

    The Montgomery sisters take us on a dark journey in book 3, more secrets to be discovered, and some one is tested to the brink (and way past) of insanity.

    And through it all Alexa's Libra, Kayden, is steadfast in his support of Alexa.

    But the Question is what happened to Jackson? Will Alexa learn about his secrets?

    Ms. Gordon is a master. Extremely fast paced action, desperation, insanity, loss, and love, she will put you through the ringer in this one. You will feel exactly how she intends you to feel. Some people will die and you can't seen really care and others will make you cry. The series is unlike any other, pure perfection.

    I really can't say much more because there are things that I do not want to spoil all the fun!

    H.D. Gordon has done it again! This third book in the Alexa Mon

    H.D. Gordon has done it again! This third book in the Alexa Montgomery series follows along right behind book two. It is fast paced and full of unexpected twsits. Just remember, prophecies are not always what they seem! The secrets and surprises keep coming, along with the pain and the love. The different POVs allowed for more diversity, which I truly enjoyed.
    Like a stone in a pond sends ripples out in many directions, so do Alexa's decisions. Ramifications are being felt in numerous places and H.D. Gordon does a great job of letting us and the characters in on them and keeping us connected to their feelings. I found Alexa's on-going conversation with her monster in her head had me cracking up. She is totally conflicted and this mechanism was a great way of illustrating it.
    Kayden is amazing through everything and the extreme steps he takes in support of Alexa are incredible. Yes, I am totally Team Kayden and have been from the start. The connection between Kayden and Alexa is undeniable and can clearly be felt.
    Jackson....such a twist while going to extreme lengths to prove his love to Alexa. How will she handle the truth about him?
    Nelly was a huge surprise here. While I expected something big, she surpassed even my imagination. I expected her to be powerful and the author did a great job showing her struggle to keep her monster in check.
    Thanks H.D. Gordon for giving us such an incredible series to enjoy! Redemptionwill be the first book I read in 2013 can't wait! The War is HERE and all bets are off as to who will be left stading at the end.

    The third installment of the Alexa Montgomery series is amazing

    The third installment of the Alexa Montgomery series is amazing in that the author took the word "twist" to a whole new level. No way could anyone have seen that coming. The story continues right where book 2 left off but plunges into a dark abyss that will be difficult to climb out of. The book is action packed with never a dull moment. There is a lot of love in this story, as well as loss, pain, hope, fear, emotion, emotion, emotion, and the author did it all quite well.

    Through the whole story, even still at the end, Alexa is conflicted with what and who she is. She knows her fate and never questions it, though she does wonder, why her? What makes her so special that she should be able to do what is being asked of her? Though I love Alexa and her badass self, her whole crappy attitude did get on my nerves a bit in this book (is it really necessary to be so freaking rude to EVERYBODY? I'm sure she has some niceness in her somewhere…I hope it does come out eventually. It would be a nice change for her…maybe at least to be nice to Kayden).

    And Jackson, oh my true love, Jackson. What could I possibly say about you? I cannot possibly leave you out of my review of this book; however, I'll just leave it at that. I love you. Enough said.

    On top of all of that, the books are incredibly well written. The author really has a way with words, painting almost whimsical pictures with her poetic-like words. I would definitely recommend this series as a must-read to everyone!

    HD is just awesome

    A great series!!! Two sisters who love for each other is fierce. Everyone in this book makes the ulimate sacrifice for love. A fast paced action from start to finish. My heart felt like it would leap out of my chest and tears in my eyes I could not put the book down. Cant wait for the next and final book. It will be bittersweet but all good things must come to an end.
