Tour Finale: Dragon Rising by Rachel E. Fisher + Giveaway

A Themed Tour through Prism Book Tours


We're blitzing the GRAND FINALE for
Dragon Rising by Rachel E. Fisher

Dragon Rising is Asher's story and takes place during the first third of Eden's Root, which is the first book in the Eden's Root Trilogy. If you missed any of the tour, go back and check out the reviews and excerpts!



Kelly P's Blog - Excerpt
There was a creak and Asher straightened, clicking off the keychain, the sickly blue LED glow vanishing. He waited in the darkness, his back pressed to the wall of the supply closet. His free hand tightened around the hilt of his sword.


Since everyone fled fearing nukes, the City was largely abandoned, the towers and subways now skeletons and blood vessels in a dead body, a corpse left to rot in the summer sun. At times he imagined walking out to the center of one of the Avenues and standing there alone, certain that he was the last man on Earth.


The abandoned state of New York City) deepened the ache for his parents. What if he was one of the last men of Earth? Not “were,” not the subjunctive…the subjective. What if he WAS one of the last men on Earth? The thought rattled around his brain like a psychotic marble.


"This is a novella that gives us the backstory of one character and it would be easy to mistake it as a prequel even though it’s labeled as #4; it is not a prequel in the usual sense and should be read after the first three books or, at the least, after Eden’s Root. Then you’ll just be adding to the pleasure you’ve already gotten"


Hope to Read - Excerpt
When I first moved here last fall I never admitted that I was nervous. It’s not like I’d ever really left Chicago. But that first night, when sirens floated up from the streets I slept with a smile on my face. It felt like home.

Now it’s a silent, sticky wasteland.

Fundinmental & sherryfundin - Review
"This is a horror story that has no supernatural monsters, just the humankind.

I am blown away by this series and find it hard to put into words how frightening it is....

Rachel’s writing gave me a first hand experience into what could be our future.

The Eden’s Root Trilogy has stuck with me long after I finished reading."


Colorimetry - Review & Excerpt
"I love this novella. !! It's dark and harsh and gritty... and I felt Asher's hunger and what he was willing to do to find food, making this dystopian reality so real, it hurts."

I’ve decided to stop keeping a body count after today. All 11 additions are from one site, a grocery store on 93rd. Someone trapped the family inside - easy enough with steel plates over the doors.


SBM Book Obsession - Spotlight


"I thought this story was good. I was a little confused since I hadn't read anything else but loved what I read. The story is written well and keeps you intrigued."


Pieces of Whimsy - Excerpt
I’m doing better at getting sleep now, whether that’s from exhaustion or adaptation, I don’t know. Either way, I’ve managed to avoid the gangs so far. I’m alive and that’s all that matters. If I can keep it together…if I can survive this first wave of death, someone will get things back up and running, right? There’ll be radio or an Army convoy, or something. There has to be.


Anyway. I was robbed last night while I slept. I guess I should be grateful that I’m still alive. (And I’m not being tortured. Bonus.) And I’m grateful that they didn’t see my sword and take it.


Brooke Blogs - Excerpt
The wheeze of his breath rang in his ears, but he tilted his head, listening for his followers. Rivulets of rain splattered through the shattered windows, last vestiges of the thunderstorm that had ravaged the City. But nothing else…


Asher awoke to a scream and sat straight up, nearly braining himself on the pipes above. Ducking just in time, he swiveled, seeking the source of the sound.

“No, please! You can have me, just let Cassie go!”

Author Bio - Rachel E. Fisher
 

I am a wife and entrepreneur living and working in Florida. I am also a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, where I majored in Biology. It was always my assumption that I would end up making research my life. Though it did not work out that way in the end, my passion for Biology remains intact.

I have always loved biology-based science-fiction and the young adult genre. It is in this vein that I offer my work.

  2. No, I haven't read any of her books. I just got started into the dystopian genre recently, by accident, really. I didn't think I would like it, but I was surprised at how much I like it!
