The Rising Review

The Rising
by Ryan Troske

Hey, so it's time for another book review! This book is called The Rising by Ryan Troske and, just as a disclaimer, I did receive this book free in exchange for an honest review.

  The first book in the Supernatural series, The Rising is about a teenage boy named Ethan who's always lived a normal life. After a car accident leaves him in the hospital, he starts to realize that he has supernatural powers.
  Now, I don't know about you, but I love that type of stuff. There's just something about it that makes it seem so much more interesting than our lives without cool powers.
  From the first page, you get sucked into the book with your conversation with Ethan. And there's really never any boring moments. Whether it's accidentally causing a knife to fly and hit his mother, or trying to work up the courage to ask the girl he has a crush on out on a date, there's tons of reasons to read about Ethan's adventures.
   This may not be a laugh-out-loud funny book, but Ethan definitely has some witty remarks at times. And the titles of each chapter can tell you everything (without realizing it until after) in such a funny way. And it definitely takes some interesting twists and turns that I don't think you'll see coming. I didn't. But, who knows, maybe I'm just an awful guesser at that type of stuff.
  In short, it was well-written, witty, and the plot was well-thought out. I definitely recommend reading it.

My Rating:    4
