A review by roonies
Dark Rise by C.S. Pacat


Kind of a rough start (a little slow) but I’m really glad I stuck with it. The lore and fantasy building was great, I enjoyed the writing style and action scenes, and overall I felt good about this read.

BUT, I would not label this a YA novel. In fact, I need a reference for James age because…little sketch. If this were new adult, I think a lot more could be done with it.

I personally saw the twists coming for the most part, there was only one I didn’t see coming and it was minor.
