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

When 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 revolutio

This review is spoiler-free for both Rise and the entire Eve trilogy

EDIT: I was originally kind and gave this book two stars, but it's August and I realize I am still angry when I discuss this book with people, so I think approximately six months of withstanding anger warrants a one-star rating from me.

Not including this final and ever so disappointing installment, I do love this trilogy, and will not forget the emotional impact Eve had on me when I read it months ago. The Eve trilogy was one I'

I must say, I devoured this series. Luckily, because I started Eve only a few days ago, I didn't have to wait for the next books in the series.

Rise picks up after Eve marries Charles and Caleb is killed. Needless to say, the book was significantly less enjoyable without Caleb in it, which warrants the three star rating. The memories of his times with Eve mentioned throughout the book were not enough to make me feel he had a presence in it. However, (view spoiler)

I cannot even believe this book was written by the same author who wrote Eve and Once. This book adds next to nothing to the series.

Eve is married to Charles. She's miserable in the palace. She's haunted by memories of Caleb. So when a chance to escape comes along, she gladly takes it, bringing with her many children from one of the boarding schools. Together they set off to find Califa, where the girls will be safe and Eve can forget her past.

The main problem with this book was how irrelevant

Can I ask " What Happened with the ending Carey???????? Seriously????? Are you kidding me??????"

And I think now I will sing :

I can't get no Satisfaction

I mean Eve is a great story . But Caleb and Eve had a deep and invincible love. Why would the ending be so abrupt, lame and incomplete? Why could we not see how the two of them collapsed into each other in the end of this war?

Very disappointing that you put such thought in everything but the most important

Eve is determined to end what Caleb has begun and end the reign of his father with Moss helping her and thats the way this book started ...

Many emotions in my chest right now ...


This book has touched every part of my heart and has not disillusioned me at all.

I'm excited, it's a beautiful ending that I did not expect. but left me wanting more , ie easily could get out a book more .... and I would love to ! LOL . I almost gave up with my thoughts toward Caleb andPUM! I'm just very very happy :)

For how much I loved the other two in the series, the finale of the Eve trilogy was a major disappointment. Don't get me wrong, the writing was still fantastic and the story so enthralling that once I started in on the ARC (advanced readers copy) I could not put it down and finished in one sitting. However, the ending, the final conclusion and farewell to the trilogy left so much to be desired. It concluded, yes, but it did not leave you feeling like it did. I actually want to cry at how awful t ...more

Holy cheese and crackers this book... Before I get into everything let me just say one thing...
This book is completely unnecessary. I feel like if ONCE just had a twenty page epilogue we would all be happy. RISE ends on a horrible cliff hanger that honestly makes you want to curl up and cry. So here's a basic synopsis.
Eve is the kings daughter and the king is obsessing over every single thing she does so he goes and kills the one person she truly loves. So Caleb is just gone-- bye bye--

I'm very conflicted about this book. I read it in just a few hours and had to know what happened, but now that I'm finished, I just don't know how I feel about it.

What I liked (no spoilers): Eve's determination and strength, new growth in characters, lots of action and surprises.

What I didn't like (no spoilers): I know the book is long, but everything seemed rushed and not fully explained. I would have liked more information about some of the new characters or explanation of how some of the surp

Let me first start by saying that I am sad to see this series end. I have loved both books but when I got this one I was afraid because when a series ends it is always with a heavy heart that I read it. Sometimes it is a hit and sometimes it is not but I have to say that I enjoyed the ending but I really needed more. I still have some questions but that is okay because I plan on re-reading the books all in a row so I can see if I answer my own questions.

In the third and final book of the Eve trilogy, Eve has married Charles, her father's advisor, in the wake of Caleb's death. Working with Moss, an undercover rebel against the King, she is asked to kill her own father for the sake of the city's future. But when things go wrong, she faces a life-threatening danger and must flee. Will she ever be able to defeat her father?

Another book that I finally got a chance to finish and ....yet I don't want it to end.

I'm going to start off with the ending. The last line of the book is solid and awesome yet there has to be more. Please tell me there will be another book cause it CAN NOT end that way. It just can't. Not after finally finding the answer that I had been searching for and then BAM over? I think not. With that said, the plot is awesome.

Also, beware of strong opinions. I understand that some people are not going to agree with me and I'm not here to battle you. If you disagree with the way that I feel, I'm not against you, and I feel as though you shouldn't be against me either.

Okay. So this book actually pissed me off. I was HUGELY disappointed at the end.

I feel as though the one, big redeeming thing about this series is the fact that Caleb dies. Eve needs to prove herself as a character and show that she is act

Hey, hey, hey you, yeah, you, do you wanna read the same story twice in one series? All you have to do is read Eve and this book. There you go, enjoy.
Eve travels to safety... Again, with a new set of people, with different problems. The girls who are with her are stupid.
It's OK, because I enjoyed the rest of the series.

OK. So I know I'm joining the bandwagon extremely late but, I needed to rant: AHHHHH, WHAT WAS THAT?!?!? I'm extremely disappointed with the way this book turned out. I mean it wasn't one of the worst books I've read in my life but it had a lot of potential to be something incredible and enjoyable- it wasn't.

First of all: The plot. I'm not too sure if it's just me, but I found the plot unenjoyable and repe

Okay, this is sad :( I’ve actually found an ending I hated more than REQUIEM – especially the last few pages! Really, the whole book had this detached, unemotional feel to it. Even the deaths and dramatic moments didn’t have an impact on me. I’m not sure what was wrong here!! Seemed like there was no depth to anything in the book--I really didn’t feel an emotional connection to any of it. And many parts of it seemed even more unrealistic and contrived than some of the events that bothered me in ...more

I am not an excessively critical reader. I can generally overlook holes in a story when the overall book is good, but this story had more holes in it than swiss cheese. Eve and Once had a few issues that I could easily put aside, but this was just ridiculous. It didn’t even feel like the same author. I expected fireworks. I craved the intense emotional connection that I felt throughout the first 2 books of the series, but felt nothing. There were several moments that I reread paragraphs because ...more

OK, REALLY??????? That ending literally made me scream. I really really really wish she would have given us more. I kind of had that "everything is going to turn out for the good" feeling, so when she learned Caleb was alive I was excited to see what the reunion was going to be like. Especially when she learned he was unable to use his legs and i REALLY wanted to see his reaction when he found out that Eve was pregnant.

I am very annoyed that this is the final book of a "trilogy". If this doesn't become a quartet I will not stick with my rating....because it ends horribly. The book was a fast read, and although some of it felt like a 'same place different day' scenario, the plot did progress and it did have just the right mix of suspense and feel good fiction. But ending it the way that she did was not only cruel but the perfect set-up for another novel. It opened doors instead of closed them. I don't need all ...more

I should not have read the synopsis of this book because I haven't read Once yet!

Yup that ending.. I could see it coming! It was a long and harrowing journey. A good dystopian even if there were plot holes.

Okay….so I’m not even sure where to start with this one. I loved Eve and Once and read them both in one sitting (and back to back). After that horrible cliffhanger in Once, I ran straight to my copy of Rise hoping that all would be revealed and explained.

My I please apologize in advance for this review and hope that it doesn't offend anyone to the point of flagging me because you believe I am being mean spirited towards the author. I am saddened by the fact that a TRILOGY has once again been written in such a way that it has left a bitter taste in my mouth, and NO people, there WILL not be any more books in the TRILOGY after this one so please move on with your lives, and breathe!

This is book 3 in the ‘Eve’ series.
Eve is married to Charles and told that Caleb is dead. She isn’t about to let this stop her and her plans though – to kill her father, and take down the new America.
Can Eve really take down the new America? Can she save the girls from the schools? And can she ever find happiness again?

This was a great end to the series, and definitely my favourite of the three.

Trudged through most of the book bored and annoyed. The pacing of the story was really off. I began to have a love-hate relationship with Eve. I wanted to slap some common sense into the school girls. The book abruptly ends just when there could be emotional pay-off to everything. -I hunted down the Epilogue that Anna Carey finally wrote for the series. It makes me mad that it's so difficult for her fans to find. Her responses on her FB page to her fans searching for it make me roll my eyes. The ...more

Ok so I started this trilogy a few years ago and, thanks to my husband, finally got the final book. I was excited for it, I thought book 1 and 2 were good stories and I really wanted to see what happened...... While I'm happy I have all 3 now, this last book was lack luster. The main character got way to whiney and not a whole lot happened for good chunks of the book. The very very ending almost felt like an afterthought. I was happy to finally see what happens to everyone although the final pie ...more
