Tour Stop: Rise by Sierra Cross - Review - Giveaway!

Rise (Coven of Fire, #1)
Sierra Cross
Publication date: June 15th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy
I closed the door on magic long ago…the day it made me an orphan.
Ten years ago, the Coven of Fire sacrificed their lives—my mother among them—to hold off an overwhelming demonic force. Now it’s back.
As a poorly-paid bartender, how can any of this be my problem? But Callie, another orphan of that battle, swears I’m the key to reviving the coven. And there’s an incredibly sexy guardian stranded on my couch who’s promising to help me stop the demons and keep the veil between the realms standing.
One problem: I’ve never been able to use magic. Our local bad boy warlock assures me I have the talent, but even if I did, we don’t have enough witches to complete a coven. The only way to survive is to pull together this pack of magicborn misfits, who have more secrets than spells, into a makeshift coven.
Can we—three untrained witches, a sarcastic warlock, and an overly intense guardian—take back the city…before the demongate falls and the forces that killed my mother destroy us too?

My Rating: 4 Stars
My Recommendation: Hight

               A fast pace, action filled thriller that had me gripped from start to finish. 
Man I am having a good year for books. This one is no different. I was tossed into a magical world full of all my fave otherworldly characters.  The delicious world building made this outstanding read even more exquisite.   

The plot moved fast, and that is on of the main reasons I fell so hard for this book. There was littler to no filler. There was a time crunch and it was honoured. The only thing that I can say that threw me, or more so why this book isn't a 5 star. The plots twists, were lacking. I had them figure out pretty fast, and for me it was a bit of a let down. Giving to many clues isn't ways a good thing, something giving non is even better. 

Now the structor and writing of this book is professional, well crafted and easy to follow. There was no plot holes and it flowed seamlessly from once scene to the next, causing you to be immersed in the story and not hopping along.  

Overall, this is truly a book that needs to be read and get out there. I can't wait to read more!

Happy Reading
