The Rise (The Alexa Montgomery Saga, #3) - H.D. Gordon The first two books in this series were amazing so I had very high hopes for this one and it did not disappoint. The book starts exactly where Half Black soul ended; with Alexa, her recently rescued mother and Kayden racing back to two rivers to rescue Nelly. H.D. Gordon is incredible at writing gripping, page turning books and The Rise is no exception, there are many unexpected twists that take the story in an entirely different direction to what you expect. Secrets that people have been hiding start to come out during this book and several new POV’s are used that give you a deeper look into some of the characters.Alexa and Kaydens relationship develops a lot in ways I really enjoyed; their chemistry is portrayed very well and is 100% believable. I’m not going to mention anything about Jackson in this review, you will just have to read the book to find out what happens with him :P By far one of my favourite parts of this book was Nelly, in the previous books she was just Alexa’s weak, gentle sister that always needed protecting but in this book you get to see an entirely different and unexpected side of her. I didn’t think this series could get any better than it already was but this book has made it even better. This is a book that I would not only recommend you read but I would almost demand that you read it, it’s just too good to miss. I can’t wait to see what the author is going to do with the final book in the series. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, this has not affected my review in any way*
