When we last visited Darracia, all was lost. The city was broken.

I finished reading the second book, Collision: The Battle for Darracia, and felt almost heartbroken wondering if and how things could ever rebound to the point of some semblance of happiness. My heart ached for characters that I have grown to love and friend over hundreds of pages and I wanted to reach out, join the battle, and find a resolution to fight evil and help good prevail. The second book was amazing but as I read the fin

Battered and beaten down, Darracia is fully in the hands of evil, and hope is all but lost. Where are the warriors who would lead their people to victory? Resources are dwindling and the waste of those in power is wreaking havoc as this once great empire is now falling to ruins.

V’sair, once the object of ridicule, has been swallowed by the sea, but is he dead or has he been given a second chance at life, a chance to learn the true meaning of being a leader, of having inner strength and trusting

I had read the previous books in this trilogy and true to fashion Michael Philip Cash did not disappoint but instead got better and better with each book. This one "Risen- The Battle For Darracia" is my favorite from all of The Darracia Saga. In all honesty I truly believe "Risen- The Battle For Darracia" is my favorite book, of all Michael Philip Cash's books that I have read so far - and I have read all but one of his books.

When I came onto Amazon.com I was torn between this book and finishing

REVIEW

Mr. Cash has penned some very good books. With his descriptions of the characters, you can relate to them. The reader is pulled into the plot more and more as you turn the pages. You will be interested even if you don't like sci-fi. His vivid imagination and his look into the future. I have read his other books, Brood X, Stillwell, The Hanging Tree, Schism and Collison. This book is the third and final of the Darracia saga. You don't have to read Schism and Collision first since Mr. Cash l

We last saw our heroes scattered, seriously injured and lost. Lothen is now in control of the planet, the people have either been murdered or turned into slaves. Everything looks lost, broken, and people have given up on everything. V’sair is going to have to learn the true meaning of being a leader to save his people. Zayden, he may be injured and drowning in his defeat, but can he find his true self and save those he cares about?

This is a dark story and a perfect end to this series. All hope i

The final book in the trilogy, Risen, is aptly titled V'sair truly rises, from the sea itself (unknowingly having gills really comes in handy, I guess)to help to lead a three pronged invasion, each one unwittingly beginning at the same time, to retake his planet. Now don't get me wrong -- I really liked this book. However, Cash ties it up just a little too neatly. All of the main characters survive (even Drakko keeps showing up as a spirit), and when they do encounter adversity -- even Zayden's ...more

A Fantasy-filled masterpiece, with a conclusion that will take you on a stormy journey from the deepest parts of the sea to the inner-most parts of the solar system. The suspense of who will walk away with what, and the mystery behind it all, will keep the reader anticipating, what unspeakable act could be just beyond the next page? An appropriate title, “Risen: The Battle For Darracia,” a stunning beginning that captured my heart and mind and held me prisoner until the end. The wonderful and ...more

This is the third and final book in this YA series. These books should be read in order as this is a continuing saga. The first two Risen: The Battle for Darraciaare:

Schism-The Battle for Darracia

Collision-The Battle for Darracia

What a wonderful finale to this series! Not only is there plenty of action but there are also lots of lessons being taught as well which adults as well as teens should learn. One is disabilities are only disabilities if you allow them to be and never under estimate the o

The author has done an excellent job of bringing everything to fruition the way it should be. Each of the characters are forced to face themselves and the adversity they face. They must find a way to overcome that adversity if they are to save themselves, their people, and the issues they fought so hard for. We see things come full circle. The author made sure we saw how flawed each of the characters were. This is what made them so realistic to us. I’m not sure many of my middle school students ...more

I received this book for the purpose of a fair review.

Overview: V’sair and the rest of Darracia have a surprise planned for his uncle. Lothen thinks that he won Darracia, but he isn’t ready for the uprising that is marching to his doorstep.

Likes: The final book of the trilogy, Mr. Cash has kept quite a bit of hope alive in this one. The people of Darracia were willing to fight for their homes and lives against one of the worst despots that they could imagine. Even Staf Nuen realized his mistakes

This is the third of the trilogy and I have also read and reviewed the first two, Schism and Collision. While this is a standalone book, I recommend reading the three in order. It will help to understand the growth of the characters and will keep the flow of the story. This isn’t the genre I usually read, but Michael Phillip Cash writes books that are easily readable with a style that crosses genre.

All three books present stories of adventure, mystery, and interesting characters. Risen is no dif

Once again Michael Phillip Cash did it again except with 3 books. I couldn't put them down. V'sair has to prove himself to his people with a constant struggle against him. He has no idea where his brother is, no idea when his love will return, and dealing with the loss of his father. He wants to make everything right once again and make The Elements whole. I can go on but if I do it spoils the riches you get after finishing the book.

Whyyyy does it to have to end. The characters were awesome and I hate to see them go but I am really happy with the ending. I do hope there will be more in the future and I do encourage other people to read it this series. It’s soo good!!!!!

The final book in the Darracia Saga continues the captivating story from where Collision left off. At the end of the last book, all seemed lost and your heart broke for the adversity and devastation the characters had faced. This third book does not disappoint, the many sub-plots, that seemed so diverse, come together nicely forming a satisfying end to the series. The narration in the audiobook is great, he brings the characters to life and the various voices fit their personalities perfectly. ...more
