How far will you go when you have nothing left to lose?
When she lost her soul mate, Caleb, Eve felt like her world had ended. Trapped in the palace, forced to play the part of the happy, patriotic princess of The New America - and the blushing bride of her father's top adviser - Eve's whole life is a lie. The only thing that keeps her going is Caleb's memory, and the revolution he started.
Now, Eve is taking over where Caleb left off. With the help of Moss, an undercover subversive in the King's court, she plots to take down The New America, beginning with the capital, the City of Sand. Will Eve be able to bring about a new, free world when she's called upon to perform the ultimate act of rebellion - killing her father?
In Rise, Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight as Anna Carey's epic tale of romance and sacrifice in the chilling dystopia of The New America comes to a stunning conclusion.

Unlike many readers, I liked this last book in the series. I liked the role that Eve played in this book a little more than in Book 2. I thought that Eve did what needed to be done. In addition, it was nice to see that Charles was one of the good. The ending was a bit abrupt, but the best thing, the expected thing, did happen. Good series.
I love a good story, especially one with a bit of a dark side.
My kids and I both listened to this series and liked it a lot. If you like Divergent you will like this too.
the story in general, but the ending was the most disappointing
yes she did a great job
boredom and disappointment
I read the first 2 books in the series and loved them. I had read the reviews for the 3rd and knew it had been poorly reviewed but I do not always agree with others reviewers and wanted to finish the series. They were right. I knew in advance some of the spoilers but the way it was revealed was terrible. I mean really terrible. It was like the author didn't know how to end it and just went ok lets do this and be done with it.
I was hesitant to purchase this audiobook series because, although there were rave reviews about the narrator, there seemed to be a lot of negative reviews about the story. I was hooked after the first book and really enjoyed both Eve and Once. Rise kept me entertained as well, but I grew concerned when I realized I only had one hour left and what seemed to me like a lot of story still to tell. I was right to be concerned. The last hour was a whirlwind that wrapped up a lot of loose pieces, but left me wanting more. I wish the author had taken her time with the final scenes. On the upside, however, she left me wishing for spinoff series focused on the lives of a few of the central characters. To me, that is the sign of a good series.
Eve (book 1) was pretty good. Once (book 2) was OK. Rise (book 3) was an utter disappointment.
The Eve trilogy had potential to be much more than it was. That the last book was so bad really taints the whole story for me.
I don't recommend it. Don't waste your credit.
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
I am so disappointed that I didn't like this book either, I found the first book was beautiful and it was one of my favorite books .. but the series continues in a most boring way that I didn't bother to connect all the dots, and the ending *sheesh* it is a cliff hanger just to satisfy the audience of young adults .. so .. I don't think the series ended well for me
Yes' because you can kick back and relax while you listen to someone tell you a story!
I believe it was the end when Eve finds someone!
She was excellent and had an amazing voice.
Yes and I pretty much did, well maybe 3 sittings!
This was a great 3rd book to the series and I hope the author continues to write more! She left it at a cliff hanger and well its not a bad ending but it leaves the reader expecting more.
*Book 2 Spoilers*----Wow! Let's start off with, narration again was awesome. Good job Tavia Gilbert! Anna Carey has done an AWESOME job with this final installment of this trilogy! My heart was crushed at the end of the last book when Caleb dies. I got this book/audiobook hoping there was some kind of mistake. Eve must carry on without her love and continue the fight for freedom that Caleb was unable to finish. She must kill her father! Come on with an ending like that, how can you not have to read the third book! The pace in this book is sped up by the thrill and fear of getting caught. Through the excitement there is still time for your heartstrings to be tugged on. Charles' love grows for Eve but it is unreciprocated due to her unwavering love for the one she lost. Excellent final book!
Another two drafts with the help of an excellent editor. One who's focus is on story development
She was an ok narrator. My problem was with the directing of the narration.
If you like endings that are easy, unrealistic and everything comes up roses... this is for you.
