Uprising by Dawn Jayne Review

Genre: New Adult,  Fantasy
Release date: 11/29/12 
Publisher: Time and TidePublishing 

Uprising Blurb (book 1 Fires of Providence Series):

What one angel will risk to earn the title of Herald,
is matched only by what another will do to keep it.

Heralds are the most powerful of all angels, secretive and feared, created for a single purpose. Only those most courageous and worthy earn a place within the elite choir, and only by breaking ancient oaths held sacred can the honor be stripped. It's a punishment that hasn't been imposed in over two-thousand years, until a single reckless act sets off a firestorm, threatening to consume all creation.

Rise Hawke never suspected she'd been marked to play a role in the deadly events unfolding in the spiritual realm. Independent and resistant to authority, she isn't thrilled when she meets Dominik, an angel with new wings, an old grudge, and a mysterious agenda he's determined to impose.

Vowing to uncover the secrets kept from her, Rise soon learns that knowing what you are isn't nearly as dangerous as discovering why. Hunted by those who want to destroy her, and controlled by those who would see her fulfill her purpose, she is forced into a brutal battle set in motion long before she was ever born. It soon becomes clear that what one angel will risk to earn the title of Herald, is matched only by what another will do to keep it.

My Review:  This book blows away almost every book I have ever read on angels and most books in the future I will ever read. From the very beginning of the story, you are violently tossed into a world that would break the strongest of spirits. Your head spins from the events that unravel beyond control. Just when you think you can't take anymore...you fall in love with characters you never thought possible, hate the characters you thought you would love and beat your head on the wall trying to figure out what will happen next. YOU WILL NOT FIGURE it out. Trust me. I tried. I was so engrossed by this story. I was a mess. I really was. I was not able to devour it in one sitting because I got the flu. I read every minute I could when I was sleeping. I finished it one day when I came home sick from work. I was NOT going to rest until it was done. I finished the book and then I was in mortal pain because I wanted so much more. I CAN'T WAIT for the rest of this series to unravel. The Heralds, the blues, the reds, the purples...OH MY! What am I talking about you ask? Well...read the book and you will know all too soon!

Happy Reading!
