Review for The Rising: Dark Fae Hollow 3 by Eileen Cruz Coleman - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
In Crimson Hollow, darkness rules, and those who seek the light are eliminated.
Twenty-one-year-old fae, Isabel, is kidnapped and tortured by a half-vampire, half-fae hybrid who is part of an army raised with one goal: the enslavement and killing of all good fae and humans. During her captivity, she vows not only to escape but also to lead a rebellion against the dark army.
But when her rebellion is ambushed, she is recaptured and imprisoned until she can be brought to the treacherous Hollow Council for trial and punishment.
Isabel is sure she is going to die, until Adriel, the hybrid soldier assigned to her charge, helps her escape. Now, on the run with Adriel at her side, Isabel must stay alive long enough to reach a secret camp of hybrids who wish to stay hidden and somehow convince them to join her rebellion.
To restore peace and light to Crimson Hollow, Isabel will risk everything...including her life.

MY REVIEW -
I loved the world building, and the open scene totally drew me in! Great way to start and set the tone for the story! The Rising takes place in a bleak world, where Vampire/Fae Hybrids have enslaved or killed humans, Fae, Vampires, and other supernaturals. Isabel has been tortured by a Hybrid, but escapes and vows to lead a rebellion to defeat the Hybrids and Queen Crimson. I loved the premise for this book, and the story had lots of unique elements that I enjoyed. Isabel is a strong and vulnerable character, but I would've loved a bit more depth with her and other characters. That's the only thing that didn't quite work for me, I would've loved more with the characters and the romance, but as the title suggests this book focus more on The Rising, which I enjoyed, but just wanted more character evolvement. I still liked all the characters, and this story is entertaining, so it didn't affect my rating too much. Quick, interesting, and different! I enjoyed it!
