Title: The Plan Commences
Series: The Rising #2
Author: Kristen Ashley
Once upon a time, in a parallel universe, there existed the continent of Triton. The land was filled with beauty, but it was also splintered by war. Out of the chaos grew a conspiracy to reawaken the Beast, a fearsome creature who wrought only tragedy and devastation. The only way to stop him was to fulfill an ancient prophecy: Triton’s four strongest warriors must wed its four most powerful witches, binding all nations together and finally bringing peace to the land.
This is the story of their unions: the quiet maiden Silence and the savage king Mars. The cold warrior Cassius and the fiery witch Elena. The steadfast soldier True and the banished beauty Farah. And the pirate king Aramus and the mysterious queen Ha-Lah. Their unions will not be easy, but each couple must succeed, for the fate of their world is at stake….
This book was just captivating. I was hooked, blinkin hooked and I didn’t want it to end!
I fell in love with the characters more and more. The couples, them getting to know each other, accept each other and the feelings that are brimming.
But my gosh it infuriated me that some of these girls cannot say what is actually on their minds! It drove me crazy in some parts! And that is the mark of a great read. Pulling those extreme emotions from me and left me wanting more and more!
Elena is still my fave! And to see the fab 4 (well 8!) from the Fantastical series again rallying to the cause made my heart leap!
This is a big book but my gawd, I can’t wait for the next installment!
