The Rising (Darkness Rising #3) by 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. And with the whole world thinking they died in a helicopter crash, it's not like they can just go to the authorities for help.

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 now, 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.

Old secrets are revealed and unexpected characters make a surprising return in this stunning conclusion to Kelley Armstrong's New York Times bestselling Darkness Rising trilogy.
Woah! That was a thousand times better than i expected and i loved every minute of it. It has made me an even bigger fan of the series and i wish it hadnt ended already. After the last book, everyone has been captured except Maya, Daniel and Corey and they are doing everything they can to gain back their freedom and reunite with their parents.

This book sheds more light on St. clouds group and we find out more about them and what they are trying to do. Another rival group is introduced which doubles the stakes and the whole time i was thinking how the hell are they going to get out of this. There is a lot of suspense and i couldnt put the book down.

One of my favourite part of the book was Ash - Maya's brother. Yes, we finally get to meet him and i loved him from the start. He is a bit of a jerk but really funny and kinda felt sorry for him too when i found out about his past. I really loved the relationship that evolved between Maya and him and he definitely made the book more interesting.

I love the ensemble of characters in this book. Maya is a great protagonist, Corey is really funny, and Daniel is just perfect. Rafe, Sam, Nicole and the others join later as well and we get to see Annie too. I suspected from the first book that Maya and Daniel had something going on and that is finally acknowledged in this. As much as i like Rafe, Daniel is just way more perfect and a way better match for Maya and i was rooting for him since the start so i am really happy.

I thought the ending was really good and everything was done perfectly. This book was a great conclusion for this series that u wont be able to put down.
