Sunroper is the third and final book in the Goddesses Rising trilogy by Natalie J. Damschroder. Six months have passed since Marley accidentally nullified the toxic energy Sam took from Quinn. Since she realized she had this power, that a simple touch to those that weren’t supposed to have the Goddesses power would nullify it, she has been hard at work. She has worked out to get her body in the best of physical shape and has teamed up with the most unlikely partner and is traveling around fi

Unable to regain her Goddess powers, but "gifted" with a different type of ability, Marley is out to make sure no one is given power that isn't already theirs. When they realize that another goddess must be giving away her power, she begins the hunt to find out who it might be. She doesn't expect to run into Gage, son of the leader of the newly discovered Numina group, also on the trail of the elusive goddess. Thrown together by mutual goals they never expect find out they actually like each oth ...more

A few months after the events of book 2, we join Marley and now knowing what she can do, she takes it upon herself to nullify any ‘flux’ users, ridding the Numina of their stolen power and their capacity to take more. When she finds out that a rogue goddess is bestowing power

It is the final book in a trilogy and I really enjoyed it despite the fact I have not read the 2 previous books in the trilogy. However, Damschroder wrote this story so well, she was able to sneak in explanations early on about what has already happened previously, allowing us to read this even as a standalone novel.

The idea that both Gods and Goddesses may live amongst us in present day is not a new one but the author really ru

I received an ARC through NetGalley.

Everything comes to a solid conclusion in Sunroper! Marley is the one who started the whole mess with the leech, lost her powers in the process, but found something new. She's now a null or a void. She can take powers from those who aren't suppose to have them and make them inert. Marley is using this discovery to track down the young men of the Numina who aren't using their new found powers for good. But who's giving the power in the first place? It has to be

Sunroper was a different but necessary read for me because of my love of anything related to mythology and this book was a welcome surprise and one that I loved for so many reasons. I have to say the authors concept of goddesses and I loved how she went about telling how they came about. The character of Marley is one that I loved because she was strong despite all that had happened to her and I loved that she wasn't wallowing in self pity and decided to change her fate for the better. We find o ...more

In the interest of full disclosure, I received an advance reader edition of this book from Entangled Publishing, LLC and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

I would rate this book 4 1/2 stars out of 5. It is the final book in a trilogy and I really enjoyed it despite the fact I have not read the 2 previous books in the trilogy. The first part of the book was slow for me probably because I had a lot to catch up on that was

This is the 3rd book in the series and I must admit that I really enjoyed them. I love the idea of battling Goddesses and I thought the main story was very imaginative and probably a great metaphor for some real-life relationships in general (read it and you’ll see what I mean!)

The character of Marley was interesting and I loved the way that, through the series she actually lost her powers and pretty much had start again to gain them back – an interesting twist when most urban fantasy has a char

This is the third book in the Goddess Risng series and just keeps getting better. It's such an unusual premise that it's quite difficult to categorise these books. Full of non stop action, adventure, intrigue and romance this is a series that truly delivers tension and originality.
This book centres around the modern day Goddess Marley who has been cruelly drained of her own powers. Realising that she now possesses the ability to nullify stolen energy or flux as it's known she is determined to d

I loved the character of Marley in this book. She showed such strength while dealing with what happened to her previously. Her capacity for forgiveness rivals most characters in books, especially when we learn who she is working with and why.

She has a unique ability after being leeched: she is able to nullify power. She describes it as a void inside of her that can take the poisonous energy. However that poisonous energy has to go somewhere. Even unknown to Marley at the time.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Having picked up this series at book 2, I was really eager to get my hands on more from this author. The writing style is great, the pacing is quick, and the story is addictive. This world that these books takes place is really unique and interesting, too.

This book picks up with Marley, who we were all worried about at the end of book 2. She's toughed up considerably and is now working with the most unlikely of partners. While on he

This book was a brilliant ending to a brilliant series.

Marley shows great strength and forgiveness in this book. Not only with what she has already endured, but with who she partners up with and in what she continues to do, even when she finds out it could send her insane or even kill her.

All of the previous characters are involved to some degree which is great as this book happens a about six months after the second book and starts a few days before Sam and Riley's wedding.

This third and final instalment of the Goddess Rising Trilogy and it doesn't disappoint!
The book is packed full of action, so much so I felt a little book drunk dizzy at times trying to keep everything straight in my head!
Marley kicked ass in this book and after everything she had been through it was great to see her move forward and get her happy ending. The chemistry between her and Gage is FAB!
There are appearances from the rest of the gang, defeat of the big bad and it was engrossing. I inha

Sunroper by Natalie Damschroder is the 3rd book in her Goddesses Rising series. Damschroeder is new to me, as I have not read the first two books in this series. However, Damschroder wrote this story so well, she was able to sneak in explanations early on about what has already happened previously, allowing us to read this even as a standalone novel. Upon completing this wonderfully exciting adventure, I have added Damschroeder to my list of authors I want to read.
