Book Review: The Rising

In Crimson Hollow, darkness rules, and those who seek the light are eliminated.

Twenty-one-year-old fae, Isabel, is kidnapped and tortured by a half-vampire, half-fae hybrid who is part of an army raised with one goal: the enslavement and killing of all good fae and humans. During her captivity, she vows not only to escape but also to lead a rebellion against the dark army.

But when her rebellion is ambushed, she is recaptured and imprisoned until she can be brought to the treacherous Hollow Council for trial and punishment.

Isabel is sure she is going to die, until Adriel, the hybrid soldier assigned to her charge, helps her escape. Now, on the run with Adriel at her side, Isabel must stay alive long enough to reach a secret camp of hybrids who wish to stay hidden and somehow convince them to join her rebellion.

To restore peace and light to Crimson Hollow, Isabel will risk everything...including her life.

There is a lot of action in this book that will keep the reader entertained.  Where I really felt that it was lacking was in character development.  For a stand alone book, I shouldn't have to read the others to get a feel about Isabel but after reading the book I don't feel as though I have more than a passing acquaintance with her.   

Ms, Coleman does a good job on world development however and I can easily see how this would be a series that readers would follow.  The dialogue is also snappy and at times amusing.

So while this was an enjoyable read, I really feel that a bit more work on the characters would make this an excellent book and would encourage me to read the rest of the books.
