Synopsis:


Allison now understands who she is and where she comes from, but will it be enough to save the world? She went through a dangerous journey, dragging her young daughter along for the ride, in an attempt to stop the evil Rising Leader, Damien, from opening the Seven Seals and bringing about the Apocalypse. 

But she hasn’t succeeded yet. The Rising still thrives and Lilith has made it her mission to open the remaining Seals so that she and her minions can rule the Earth. 

David and Allison hope that love can conquer all, but in reality, love is never enough. Will they, along with the rest of the gang back at the Compound, be able to stop the Rising?

And where is The Descendant that is prophesied to save them all?


The first book in the series, Power, is FREE during the tour!





My Review

Hope picked up where Power left off, with only a short time between the two novels. Hope had the same feel as Power and if you liked the first book in the series, then you are sure to like the second.


It's always fun seeing a story from different points of view, and it's even more fun when you get to see from opposing sides! We got to see a lot of Lilith and get a feel for just how dark and twisted the Rising is. Lilith is brutal and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. It was both fascinating and repulsive to watch her - I loved it! The Order members were the complete opposite and was great being able to see from both sides of this war.

This book probably seems slow to some readers because there isn't really any action until the end, but this book tells a gorgeous story and the growth of the characters is amazing to watch. Samantha is still my favourite character and what she went through in this book was both fantastic and frightening. She is such a brave little girl and I love her to bits!

I easily slipped into this book, it flowed seamlessly from the first book, carrying across all the right moods and tones. I am really impressed with Theresa's ability to spin a story and know the more she writes, the better she will become, even as good as I find her already. I didn't quite realise the horror and destruction that was taking place in Power, but Hope really brought that to light and I was both shocked and appalled at what the world had became. This story makes you think and takes you along for a great ride. It's not an action-packed book, but it's engaging 'til the last!
