Rise is book one of the Spelldrift: Coven of Fire series by Sierra Cross. For me it was a heck of a kick off too, I couldn't put it down. From pretty much the first paragraph this book had lots of action. Alix is a very likable character. I loved her attitude. Alix is very sensitive and tender hearted, just don't piss her off. Sierra Cross has done a great job with this series, I am on the look out for more of this series.
Alix was left an orphan at the age of 14 when her parents were killed in a bus accident, at least that's what she was told happened to them. Her Aunt has raised her since and has tried to give her a good life, or has she.
This book is filled with twists and turns and I feel like if I tell you about them I will spoil the story so this review is intentionally vague.
I was given my copy of this book from Xpresso book tours and the Author for review purposes.
