Angels, humans, fallen angels, world travel, Biblical prophecy, romance, and lots of action is what awaits you in Dark Rising by Monica McGurk. It’s the second book in her Dark Hope series and even better than the first one.
In Dark Hope, readers are left hanging on so many levels and Dark Rising picks up right in the thick of it, not missing a beat. This second book answers a lot of the questions that surfaced in the first book but so many new conflicts pop up that you wonder if anyone is going to survive. Like I shared with my Dark Hope review, this isn’t a genre I’m normally drawn to, but I couldn’t stop reading. I want you to read this series so I don’t want to explain too much (especially if you haven’t read the first one yet), but Dark Rising is rich in travel descriptions, old European churches, and full of action. The reader can’t help but be bitten by the travel bug as you read. With the mysteries that Hope, Michael, and their unlikely band of angels are trying to solve, I would compare a lot of this book to the great historical mysteries that Dan Brown writes, full of hidden signs, secrets to decode, and ancient artifacts. Throw in all of that goodness with a side of romance (always my favorite part) and Dark Rising by Monica McGurk is exciting, enthralling, and makes me super antsy for the last book.
I might have sent McGurk some threatening tweets about the ending of this one and plot suggestions for the third book because I’m in too deep and need a happy ending. She assured me that her final plot decisions have been run by her teenage daughter and they were approved. No pressure, McGurk, but this better end well.
Okay, so here’s the best part (besides the awesome book), I get to give copy of Dark Rising to a lucky reader. Enter below using Rafflecopter and I’ll send one of you a signed copy courtesy of McGurk. How awesome is that? Good luck!
