I enjoyed Light Rise it was rather different than my normal book choices, but I was drawn in by the lovely cover. This book is entertaining and full of adventures. Also, throughout this story you’re given plenty of characters to get behind right up until the very end. I loved how this book was full of magic against the backdrop of war, and the battle of good versus evil consumes the story and you never really know who will win.
The story itself follows Darian as he is dragged into time travel by the council of light. He is dragged into a war he was not prepared for, but destined to face. After a crash course in his new mystical abilities, he’s set to go up against the devil and trap him in a magical book. Will he succeed? Or will the devil present him with a more tempting offer to topple the balance towards the dark side? You’ll have to read this book to find out.
This book has some wonderful scenes and it blurs the lines between good and evil, right and wrong. I thought in some ways this book spoke of our moral compass on whether we help others or get driven to darker places where our morality and humanity is tested.
The author did a great job at ramping up the tension between Darian and the council as they march closer to the impending evil. The ending was very interesting and brought this novel to a great point between possible redemption and the possibility of another story in the making.
I would recommend this novel for anyone who likes stories laced with battle and magic, good and evil and characters that you will either love to get behind or love to hate. Either way, this is a great adventure.
Also, this book has a novella that is like a prequel if you want to start from there. However, this novel can be read and enjoyed on its own.
My only quibble is that at times I wasn’t always sure who was speaking. Some parts of dialogue appeared to be linked to a speaker but in fact were said by someone else. However, that is quite minor in terms of the whole book and could be due to me rather than the book itself. It took me a while to get into the story but when I did it was an enjoyable read and engaging. I’m sure many other readers will also like the series for the way it is constructed. I was particularly interested in the training aspects and I thought the fight scenes were drawn well technically.
He’s not sure he belongs with these powerful people, until they tell him he has powers of his own. Does he really belong in a fight between angelic and demonic creatures?
Light’s Rise moves at a quick pace and is an easy read. Darian’s reactions are relatable as we follow his journey into a newly challenging world, and the tone manages to be light, despite the weighty matter of good and evil. An enjoyable read.
Darian was a rather passive character, but gradually eased into the story. The battles were well done, although, none of the 'heroes' were in doubt and all miraculously came through...all with amazing abilities, perfect for war.
It's a fast-paced well-written story that keeps interest and I really enjoyed the magical elements.
Overall, an enjoyable fantasy read for all ages.
