4 stars at the very least, possibly 5. Think Gladiator meets Truman Show meets Return of the King. Amazing from beginning to end, filled with action and emotion. Stanek has created a gripping epic of a story, which is an arguably darker than his others. I truly couldn't put this book down. Already can't wait until the next book in the trilogy! Whatever your preferred genre is, read it anyway. Even Stephenie Meyer recommended it and that says something. The way Stanek writes his characters just l...more
This book is clearly one of my favorite books! I myself have a very difficult time getting actively engaged in books. I buy many books hoping to get captured by one of them so that I will not want to put the book down. This book has done it! I'm reading this book again in between trying to finish the hunger games which is good but not as captivating or as well done especially when it comes to the characters.

I enjoy finding out what this elven gladiator will get his hands into. Another great thi...more
To experience the beauty of Ruin Mist in all its epic vastness, read Rise of the Fallen. To find out what it's like to be an alv or a jurin or one who gets caught up in all sorts of important events, but at heart still longs for to truly live - read this novel.

This book is filled with fantastic adventures, with marvelous creatures, and descriptions so vivid that you can feel the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Definitely a must-read for anyone. I enjoyed every moment of it.
This book is full of surprises and action. In the arena it’s all about surviving and not getting killed. Rise of the Fallen was one of the best books I have ever read. I couldn’t put this book down. The concept of this book is so amazing, and different then any other book. Who would’ve thought that a book about survival, killing, and the many interesting creatures could be so amazing.
The author makes it work so well. He does this through developing characters that you want to root for and characters that you want to hate. Robert Stanek does a masterful job at developing a world that you can see yourself in and places you in situations where you feel that you are there with Delinna. This is a book that I would recommend to all!
What I remember most are the three chilling images:

1. The thousand-fold gates and the bitter cold place between worlds.
2. The roaring and churning of the tower where they were kept.
3. The cries in the arena for Raistin's death.

Amazing story.
Rise of the Fallen is about a fairy land called the Hundred Worlds. The novel starts with the siege of Elvemere by drakon servants called the jurin. I recommend this book to others because it has a good plot and sucks you into the book.
Stanek succeeds in creating a vast, fleshed-out universe. I absolutely fell in love with it on the first read, I just couldn't put it down. I love Stanek's language and all the history that floods this book. Highly recommended.
The books have a great story, but this isn't a casual read, it's an undertaking. The whole of the Hundred Worlds seems so real.
I love his other ones. Until I read it I didn't think any other book would beat them. It does.
My favorite RS book by far. The action starts on the first page and doesn't let up.
I couldnt put it down. I read until I finished.
Read. Enjoy. Stanek's a pretty great writer.
