I really love her books. This is my favorite of the series. If you enjoy books with a mystical feel or reading about vampires then this is the series for you. This is not another day Twilight series. These books are so worth it! she gives new theories on the origins of vampirism and speaks like a normal human being to her readers. :-)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I said this for the 2nd book, Mariposa, and it applies to this one too: Mesmerizing. Captivating. Addictive. Perfect. I am so hooked, and can’t wait until Halloween when the 4th book is out! I was very pleased with how this story progressed, it has just gotten better if that’s possible, but it did, so far each book just grows the story, and that’s the kind of series I like.
I am so amazed at Rebekah’s writing style. It all flows so beautifully together. The descriptions are so vivid, you really feel like you’re there with Nadjia. I am extremely impressed. Rebekah has a huge career ahead of her, and would not be surprised to see her become one of the top writers. I really believe that. Give these books a chance. They will hook you in, the story is so intriguing, and the suspense is there, with such believable characters. You become attached to them, and you will feel all the emotions and the fears and excitement right along with them.
Nadjia is a great lead character. I love her witty, sarcastic, sometimes harsh personality, it is refreshing to me, and that part of her, feels so real.
We begin this book pretty much were the last one Mariposa left off. There is a huge revelation at the end of this book, that I won’t say what, but it makes this love story between Nadjia and Alexei EPIC, it really does. We finally learn some well hidden secrets that shed some light on why these two are so perfect for each other, and seem drawn to each other as if it was a magnetic pull. We also get to learn why Nadjia is so powerful. She also learns some pretty awesome magick, that has me in awe.
Here is a very touching quote between Nadjia and Alexei, when he asked her if she was in love with James, she said she loved him, but not in love with him, and how he would not be able to fulfill all her needs, and that Alexei is everything to her, and then she says this:

“And to be honest, this entire time I was quiet because I was thinking about how much I love you. Every time I allow myself that quiet reflection, I begin to panic. I become paralyzed with fear, because the love I have for you is so overwhelming and irrational that I would never survive the absence of it. For people like us, forever is a very long time.”
It’s so touching the relationship they have. It’s not perfect, they have their fights and all that, but they always come back to how much they mean to each other.
I again, really love the relationship Nadjia and Alexei have. I also really love the love James and Nadjia have for each other. It’s platonic, but a very reall love all the same. James is a great character too; I really love the final truth we learn behind the Vlkolak that Nadjia learns from her Aunt Lizzy (Olga’s much younger sister) we find out who James’s father is, and it’s a whopper of a surprise, and a nice one too. We know from book 2 that Nadjia wants the get the Vlkolak back on the council, and she wants James as their king. She can feel James is filled with goodness like no other. I was openly crying when Lizzy was telling her story about when she was very young, and about the King of the Vlkolak. It’s heartbreaking, and the emotional turmoil this will put you in is hard to describe.
I feel privileged to be able to go on this journey with Nadjia and the rest of them. It’s a story like no other out there. It has its own spin on Angels, Vampires, and Magick. It will have you dreaming and thinking of this world that Nadjia liv

Rebekah entrances the reader with her gift of story telling and Lucifer Rising has to be my favorite installment of the series thus far. The characters (old and new) are well written, each with a history all their own. Every one has a moment in their past foreshadowing something to come in the future (which is always written so subtly that you don't realize it until it happens and you have that "ah ha" moment). My favorite story in this book pertains to Lizzy and her past relationship with the original Vlkolak King. It's incredibly romantic and exciting. The details are so well written that the reader can picture everything happening in the scene.
This series is unlike any other I have ever read and it always leaves me wanting more. I love the way the books end on cliff hangers and really keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what happens next. Having said that I am eagerly awaiting the release of Book 4.
