what?!? There's a sequel already?!? I haven't even read the first one
Zofis fierce and adventurous with a strong desire to heIp her scorned fellow Travelers. Being a Traveler can make life pretty dangerous, but its instilled a fighting instincts in Zofi that will help her keep fighting when all hope seems lost. Akeylahs abusive upbringing has given her the determination and quiet strenght of a survivor. Shes smart and very perceptive.

I went into this series not realizing it is a duology, and thinking the first started slow but by the end had managed to capture my attention enough that when the opportunity to read #2 came around, I went for it. I'm quite glad I did, as I honestly liked #2 better. The pacing seemed better, and the main characters came into their own. They faced battles both individually and together, and the fact that they happened to be 3 strong women characters certainly was great. The end (no ...more

Ellen Goodlett... you’ve done it again! Rule was excellent (besides the cliffhanger that destroyed me) but you have out done yourself!! You gave the girls the proper ending they deserved and, although I’m sad the story is over, made my heart overjoyed! :)

I loved how the story progressed and all the drama it contained. The character development was excellent and my heart swelled up reading how the girls grew from Rule to Rise.

You’ve made the perfect world and although I’m sad it’s over, you have

Another win for Ellen Goodlett on her debut duo. Every twist, betrayal and secret from the first book Rule only becomes more entangled and crazy in this one. With attacks on the three sisters, no one knows who to turn to, who to trust or how long they’ll survive. This book keeps you guessing till the last page.

So good. I read it in a day. Loved the sisterly bond and loved that they worked together in the end to put a stop to the blackmailer.

Ohh man. I really enjoyed the ending of this duology. I was so sure that the blackmailer was one person, but it turned out to be someone else that I did not expect! Definitely a page turner for sure.

Ellen Goodlett writes because otherwise she would spend her days plotting to take over the world. She figures that the former would benefit humanity ever so slightly more than the latter (which would be disastrous and involve a lot of cats in government positions). Her debut novel, RULE, about three girls competing for the throne in a fantasy world, will publish in fall 2018 with Little Brown.
