The Rise by Julie Plec

The Rise by Julie Plec
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The year is 1722. Elijah, Klaus, and Rebekah have fled, from Mikael their father who is hell bent on killing them, to the new world. They try in New Orleans to build up a new life and have the past nine years lying low not really being able to settle in a town that is ruled by witches and werewolves. But everything is about to change. Vivianne, born of a mother who is a witch and a father who was a werewolf is betrothed to a werewolf to establish a union between witches and the werewolves that should bring peace between them. But then Klaus sets his eyes on Vivianne and the union is in jeopardy.

This is without a doubt a book written for the fans of the tv-series The Originals,if you don’t like the show or has not even heard of the Mikaelsons then you probably won’t like it as much as a fan of the show. Like me, who loved the book! I can’t remember the last time I read a book with such an enjoyment that the time just flew by and suddenly the book is over and I just wanted more, but there isn’t anymore because the last 8 % of the book is just the first part of the next book (that I want pronto!) and now I’m sad because it was so good.

I mean it had instlove and everything and I bought it. Sure Rebekah falls way too soon, but that is part of her character, she has never been very lucky when it comes to men. Seeing Klaus in love was more of surprise, but it worked also. Elijah, as usual, is the one trying to stay level headed and keep his brother away from problems, but as always, Klaus is a loose cannon and Elijah will always put his family before anything. Was the ending predictable? Yes, but I didn’t mind that either. Damn, I just sucked up the story like a sponge sucking up water.

Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy for an honest review!
