“I really enjoyed this book and the characters in it.  Gaby and Alexander have two wonderful characters, both filled with love and loyalty.  Both are willing to fight for those they love.  There are secondary characters that are equally great and I would love to read about them in future books in this series.   This is a book that can be enjoyed not only by young adults but by adults as well.”

“This story consumed me from the exciting beginning to the very satisfying ending – to the point that I even dreamed about fallen angels and epic battles between good and evil.

Once you start reading Rise from Darkness be prepared to become addicted to it. It will have turning the pages and not able to put the book down! A great read! But beware of what you may not see just from reading the back of the book!”

“WOW! This is a great start to the Battle of Souls Series!! Ciara (as always) does a wonderful job with creating a story line that grabs you and doesn’t let go! The characters are realistic and you become invested in the outcome. There are several twist and turns and you are not disappointed in where you end up. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series ~ Fall from Grace. You can also check out Love’s Long Shadow a prequel Novella, I read it first and felt that I had a better understanding of the characters. If you are looking for a new series then this is it for you!! I will definitely be reading more from Ciara Knight!!”

5 Stars Keeping Up with the Rheinlanders

The very first chapter of this book made my chest tighten up. Gaby has gone into the water for a swim, trying to cleanse her mind. She gets flipped around in the water, a bit disoriented… then she hears some laughter, sees swimming shapes around her. It was some very powerful imagery and a perfect introduction into the rest of the book.”
