From the ashes, a predator rises.

After stumbling into the supernatural world with her angel-hybrid bestie, Ella Thomas is doing just fine, thank you very much.

5 - "I'm not afraid if I'm with you..." Stars!

The companion novel to The Hunt series see’s chaos demon Malachi Saevitia and Ella Thomas get their HEA. This is a couple who in the previous books rubbed each other up in completely the wrong way, but you know what they say about the boy that pulls your pigtails in the playground the hardest…

He heard her every movement, every breath, and it was driving him fucking mad…

Liz never takes the route you are expecting when it comes to her story lines,

I knew I was going to love Malachi from his appearances in the other books! Sexy, strong chaos demon? Yes please!! As always, the writing is fantastic. Plot twists, action, steam, and real, loveable characters full of classic Meldon sass and snark. A perfect addition to the Hunt series, I loved this!!

You guys, I just really, really, REALLY love Liz Meldon. This woman is as prolific and talented as they come. The fact that she loves her readers so much to bless us with this follow up to The Hunt is just the most heartwarming thing.

I absolutely LOVED returning to Farrow’s Hallow. Reading about Ella and Malachi while getting to see all these glimpses into the rest of the squad’s lives since The Hunt ended was pure magic. Together, they find family. And it makes me feel like I’ve foun

5/5 - Finally MALACHI x ELLA’s story!!

⭐️ Demons x Angels x Vampires x Witches = PNR DREAM

⭐️ The Uprising is book 5 in the The Hunt series. Also known as a companion novel. You must read The Hunt before this book, it’s not a standalone. The gang is back: Severus x Moira, Alaric, Cordelia, Malachi, and Ella. Along with a new villain.

⭐️ This is going to be vague because I’m not one for spoiling...

I received a copy of this ARC in exchange of my honest review.
I don’t want to say that I am disappointed by this book, but I am going to say that having read this separately from “The Hunt” series (with almost a year apart, and my taste in books changing) might have impacted a bit into what I ended up thinking about this book.
It honestly took a different road on what I was expecting it chose for it to start and continue and end, and although I do have to say that I was a bit not happy with the a

When Liz said this was a love letter to the fans of The Hunt she 100% was not kidding because I am utterly in love.

A chaos demon who has known nothing but darkness and bloodshed. A mortal human who was plunged face first into a dangerous world. Together they'll discover how good it feels to give into pleasure.

My heart was in my throat for most of this book which is peak Liz Meldon. I was so excited, a bit terrified and absolutely in love while reading. No one and I mean no one writes a PNR lik

Uhm, wow! I read The Hunt and The Uprising back to back, and I was completely hooked to the story and characters from the very beginning. With that being said, you should definitely read The Hunt prior to this one, it'll definitely make your reading experience a whole lot better!

A fabulous addition to the paranormal world of Farrow’s Hallow …

I really enjoyed this entertaining paranormal romance! It’s a well written companion story that begins directly where The Hunt serial left off. This story revolves around Ella Thomas, Moira’s sassy, feisty human bestie as she prepares for life after college while living in a house full of paranormals. Good thing she doesn’t have sexy-as-sin chaos demon Malachi Saevitia dogging her every move and messing with her emotions – or is it?

Wow! Talk about one wild rollercoaster ride. You get it all with this little guy. A whirlwind of mishaps, unexpected circumstances and surprises that pull all your emotions into play with every color on the spectrum. One action packed, hard hitting, pulse racing, heart pounding, page turning wonder that brings this bad boy blazing to life flawlessly. Twixt and twined and put through the wringer as we follow their trials and tribulations. You get drawn into this world so deep everyt

I’m in shock. My brain is completely numb. I have no idea how I’m going to find the right words to explain what this book has just put me through. There’s action and intrigue, plot twists that take you down dark alleys you never thought you’d explore, and an emotional undertow that swept my bawling backside out to sea. I loved coming back to these characters to see what happens next but reaching the end of the book and realizing that I might just have to say “goodbye” to them this time, just abo ...more

The gang's all here for The Uprising, and it is absolutely impossible to put down. I loved Malachi in The Hunt series, so I was excited to read his and Ella's story. Plus, we get the added bonus of Moira and Severus along with Cordelia and Alaric, and of course, they're all right in the thick of things as a new big bad hits Farrow's Hollow. The story is fast paced and filled with everything I've come to expect from Liz Meldon and this series. It's wonderfully written and draws you into a world o ...more

The Uprising was totally unexpected, in both it's existence and it's content. HELLLOOOO Ella and Malachi. Super dark and twisty, action packed, and just utterly fabulous. We got to reconnect with Moira and Severus, hello twist there as well. Liz always impresses me with her work! ...more

Wow, just wow. The plot threw me off so many times. It is one of those books where you think you have it figured out but then it blindsides you. Liz Meldon has the uncanny ability to weave a story that includes action, intrigue, violence, hot sex and plot twists that feel as though you are on an emotional roller coaster. Brilliantly written (as usual). The chemistry between Malachi and Ella which we already experienced in The Hunt explodes in this book. The snappy dialogue is now more from Malac ...more

I loved this companion novel to The Hunt Series. The storyline is well-written, has action, suspense, steam, angels, demons and a realization of a relationship. There is plotting, fighting, a trial, and emotional upheaval. These remarkable characters all have substance and depth. Great Read. I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review.

I LOVED Ella and Malachi’s story. I’ve been waiting for it and I was not disappointed. They have been dancing around each other and flirting in typical demon style. Tragedy strikes and Malachi steps up and goes all out for Ella. I don’t want to say more because I don’t want to give anything away. I love all the characters in the series and was happy to see updates on them as well. You definitely need to read the series before taking this one on. You won’t be disappointed and you’ll wonder why yo ...more

Boy, these two are volatile and have a fierce attraction even if they fight like cats and dogs.
It's an entertaining read and I just couldn't wait to get my hands in Ella's and Malachi's story. Intrigue, drama, plot twists and romance.

The Uprising is the companion novel to The Hunt Series and you should definitely read the series before starting this book otherwise you will miss out on a great read. Ella and Malachi go on quite a journey and I loved feeling like I was right there with them through it all. Demons, angels and so many other intriguing characters are in this amazing world. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

It has a great story that is full of adventure. It has steamy sex between Ella and Mal but not too prolonged. It has very interesting characters, albeit Moira and Ella are too dramatic for me. Great series! [I received an advanced copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.]

Always entertaining

Malachi the chaos demon was not a character that lingered in my mind as I read previous volumes in the series. However, the story was surprisingly entertaining. Lots of action, a dash of heat and if demons can get sweet, a bit of that also. There is also quite a bit of stories about other characters in the series.

A totally intriguing story as always. A human among angels, demons and more. That’s a totally different world to be living in. Loved it and looking forward to more.

This is Malachi and Ella’s story. The characters are well developed and engaging and storyline flows smoothly. Will Ella let Malachi into her life or will him having disappeared for months on end only to show up when things are starting to become dangerous

We return to Fallow's Hollow, and revisit our friends: Moira, Severus, Alaric, Cordelia, Ella and Malachi. This story really focused on Ella and Malachi's relationship, or struggle toward one? Ms. Meldon has once again, whisked me away for hours to another "world." Demons, angels, vampires, oh my. Absolutely love each and every character. The love between Moira and Severus, the sacrifices these characters make for one another! The snappy dialogue, especially from Malachi. This is not your ordina ...more

(Thank you Liz for the eARC!)

4.5 stars. Visiting Farrow's Hollow once again and seeing all of my favorites was so, so much fun. I love THE HUNT, so I was all in for a companion novel about Ella and Malachi (although Moira and Severus are still my favs). From page one it kept me guessing and I was not expecting that ending!

I like how Liz Meldon writes, to the point, moves on with the story and gets things done.
I loved all the characters although Moira's overprotectiveness got a little annoying. Mal and Ella were a bundle of hotness, loved them. Can't wait for the next book!
