Hello, fellow readers! Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. I noticed last week when I link back to the original creator that their account doesn’t seem active. I want to continue to give them credit for this, but if someone knows a blogger who is currently hosting this, please let me know so I can give them credit.
Rise (Rule #2) by Ellen Goodlett
I don’t read many high fantasy books, but I remember enjoying the first book in this series, so I would like to continue it.
“Sisters Akeylah, Ren, and Zofi are all a step closer to their dying father’s throne, a step closer to the crown that will allow one of them to rule over Kolonya. But the sisters’ pasts continue to haunt them. Each hides a secret marked with blood and betrayal, and now their blackmailer is holding nothing back. When King Andros discovers the sisters’ traitorous pasts, the consequences will shake the entire kingdom to its core.
As Kolonya’s greatest threat stalks closer and closer, weaving a web of fear and deceit around Ren, Zofi, and Akeylah, even the people they love are under suspicion. If the sisters are going to survive, they’ll have to learn to trust each other above all else and work together, not only to save themselves, but to protect everyone and everything they hold dear.”
Why I’m Excited to Read It:
I read the first book almost two years ago and I remember it ending on a cliffhanger! I finally bought the second book earlier this year. The series has been called a cross of Three Dark Crowns and Pretty Little Liars, which I definitely thought was accurate!
