The Rising is the final book in the Darkness Rising series. After reading all three books in the series, I really think it could have all been edited down into one book and it might have been a little better. I did enjoy the story, but the ending felt a little anticlimactic to me. Armstrong really painted herself into a corner because of the way the events of the story were built and the development of the issues the characters faced. However, the emotions were high in the story and the ending was satisfying. ( )

I'm three quarters through and I really don't like Rafe... ( )

I didn't like this trilogy. The story kind of dragged, the second book sucked and this book felt unsatisfying. The pay off wasn't worth the read. Not a bad book just not at all good. ( )

My review and rating were somehow lost, so my review won't be as detailed as before.

This is the conclusion to this series and we even get to see what happens to Chloe's group from Darkest Powers series.

This book wasn't as action heavy as last book but overall I enjoyed it. I did like the ending and was kind of sad that the series was over. Even though it wasn't as much action, all our questions get answered and and we get a conclusion. I don't remember there being anything that was missed or forgotten to answer.

I loved reading this series and Darkest Powers and would recommend them both to anybody. Overall I was very pleased with what was written. ( )

Blurgh. Well, as a series this one is much weaker than her Darkest Powers series. Whereas the story following Chloe, Derek, Simon and Tori is action packed and there's a new twist everywhere, this story is a much slower, basic rehashing of the original series. You could literally chart the plot points from the Darkest Powers series and check them off one by one. While I loved the first series and think it's a great story line this one doesn't have the action and quickness the other used to carry it along.

I hated the first book from this series. Basically it was the first half of the 1st Darkest Powers book, drawn out and slow. Book 2 is essentially the 2nd half of book 1 (finally they escape!) and the beginning of book 2. It made for a much better read and felt better timed. Then came this book and I was so excited after book 2 I leapt straight into The Rising. Ugh. For a woman who writes surprisingly strong, well recognized female characters she makes them shockingly dumb. For some stupid reason Maya lets herself get caught in this book. So now we get the whole stuck in an institution thing. Only in Chloe's books there was a feeling of fear. At any moment they could pull the plug and kill our beloved character. There's no such fear for Maya and friends so instead it was just a boring place holder for us to wait out an escape which we all knew was coming.

Yes, we get to see Derek, Chloe, Simon and Tori but it's with a whimper and not a bang. In fact, that's how I would sum up this whole series. Every action has a whimper and no bang. It's slow and repetitive if you've read series one. Characterization is also a lot weaker here. Maya finally won me over and Daniel was a favorite from the start for me but Rafe drove me insane (he felt like a giant cardboard cut out of a every bad boy who's secretly a good boy).

Overall this series wraps everything up but it's so weak, there's just no tension or action. The same ending could have been carried off with action and everything clicking into place as our hero's fight for it all. Instead, it just falls together for them. The last 5% of the book is just happily ever after writing, but it makes the book go from UF (um, or attempted UF) to PNR and I really don't think that was the goal for these books, other than the idea that all YA readers apparently need a romance or else they just don't get your writing.

Hugely disappointed after the first series. This series is readable which is more than I can say for much of the YA out there and I'm sure many will love it just because they loved Darkest Powers, and here you get to read it all over again, just with different characters at place holders.

Series was a 2.5 for me. Book 2 settled at a 4.5. This book is also a 2.5, just couldn't give it a 2 because there's a lot I like (strong female character, sets a boy aside to get some work done, blah, blah, blah) but very far from a 5 in my book. ( )

[All the girls have been put in Tori's bedroom. Chloe is supposed to be with them, but isn't.]

That left me with Hayley and Victoria -- Tori, as everyone called her. She sat cross-legged on her bed, watching us like (sic) we were stray cats someone had stuck in her room -- strays that were liable to pee on her ankle boots and shed all over her designer jeans. (chapter 40)
