The race for survival comes to a thrilling conclusion in the heart-stopping finale to the Darkness Rising trilogy, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong.

Things are getting desperate for Maya and her friends. Hunted by the powerful St. Clouds and now a rival Cabal as well, they're quickly running out of places to hide.

All they have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they're so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting more and more out of control. But Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her. And like it or not, she'll have to face down some demons from her past if she ever hopes to move on with her life. Because Maya can't keep running forever.

With all the twists, thrills, and romance that have made Kelley Armstrong an international bestseller, plus the surprising return of some fan-favorite characters, The Rising will hold you under its spell long after its breathtaking end.

As I never read the Darkest Powers trilogy (by this very author), I did not understand the references between the introduction of the "new characters" who had a past. Or what that past was, but to be very honest, I almost felt like there wasn't much thought happening as I read this book. Afterwards, however, I did a lot of questioning and reflection. Why was it that I couldn't enjoy this book as much? I don't know whether to blame the books and their lack of interest, or if it was my own preferences. However, I would definitely recommend this to people who enjoyed "Twilight" and "Teen Wolf" and such.

This book was amazing and probably the best from the whole series. I especially loved the ending, how everything turned out.

This book was amazing. A great way to finish off the series. Read some spoilers, and it kind of spoiled it. But over all, amazing book

This book had a great ending! I love when a series leads to an outcome that makes sense and is so perfect! Although my favourite book in the series was the first, this one one came close in second place.

It has been a while since I read the first two books in this trilogy so it took me a little while to get into this book. However I did enjoy this book. I also like the way everything came out and it had an ending. It left another story a possibility but it gave an ending. I also like the conclusion of the love triangle. It was not all teen angsty. Nice ending to a good series.

Not as strongly written as the previous books. Still a fun read, and am glad Maya made the decisions she did. I cannot see this being the end of things at all. Eventually they'll have to grow up, right?

I reeeeeally wish Maya stuck with Rafeal!!!!!!!!!!! But this was the best series i've read in a looong time.

Maya has been separated from a lot of her friends but she still has Daniel and Corey and there is one more person to add to the list when she finds her long lost brother, Ash. Shortly after, she gets captured but it might not be as bad as she thinks because she is learning things at the same time.
