Overview

How far will you go when you have nothing left to lose?

hen 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.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The conclusion of the Eve trilogy begins with Genevieve trapped in the City of Sand. Although her father has made himself the dictatorial king of The New America after a plague, Genevieve continues to side with the rebels determined to bring him down. To do so, she may have to murder her own father. Complicating matters, she's in a loveless marriage to Charles but is pregnant by Caleb, the love of her life, who was killed in the previous book. Now, after failing in her attempt to poison her father, she escapes from the City of Sand (formerly Las Vegas) with girls she rescues from the prisonlike schools her father has established with the intention of forcibly impregnating them to boost the population. The story then takes readers on an exciting trek to "Califia," although Carey never explains how the group moves so quickly on foot across the forbidding landscape, focusing instead on the threats they experience during their stopovers. When they reach San Francisco Bay, Genevieve suddenly decides to return to the City of Sand and complete the task of assassinating her father. Character development remains sketchy, although Genevieve's relationship with her estranged but devoted husband could be interesting. The author doesn't take up any themes such as societal freedom or individual liberty that might be provoked by the dystopian setting, focusing instead on entertainment value. Shallow but exciting. (Dystopian romance. 12 & up)
Lauren Kate
“A gripping, unforgettable adventure—and a fresh look at what it means to love.”
Cynthia Hand
“A thoughtful, heart–wrenching, and romantic book that I inhaled in one sitting.”
Booklist
“…this dystopia offers descriptively detailed fantasy–futuristic elements and builds suspense, and Eve’s continuing experiences—and the concluding twist—will be welcomed by series followers.”
