Goodreads Synopsis

Heralds are the most powerful of all angels, secretive and feared, created for a single purpose. Only those most courageous and worthy earn a place within the elite choir, and only by breaking ancient oaths held sacred can the honor be stripped. It's a punishment that hasn't been imposed in over two-thousand years, until a single reckless act sets off a firestorm, threatening to consume all creation.

Rise Hawke never suspected she'd been marked to play a role in the deadly events unfolding in the spiritual realm. Independent and resistant to authority, she isn't thrilled when she meets Dominik, an angel with new wings, an old grudge, and a mysterious agenda he's determined to impose.

Vowing to uncover the secrets kept from her, Rise soon learns that knowing what you are isn't nearly as dangerous as discovering why. Hunted by those who want to destroy her, and controlled by those who would see her fulfill her purpose, she is forced into a brutal battle set in motion long before she was ever born. It soon becomes clear that what one angel will risk to earn the title of Herald, is matched only by what another will do to keep it.

My Review

I loved this book!!!  I haven't read any other angel book like it.  It puts a whole new twist on angel stories.  Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down.  I was completely hooked after the very first page. Uprising was beautifully crafted  Dawn did a fantastic job with the that.  I loved how Dawn made this story feel real.  It was like I was right there along with the characters and able to feel what they were feeling.  I love that about books. 

The character development in this book was amazing.  I love watching characters grow and become more than what they ever expected.  Rise is a great heroine.  I just fell in love with her, and was able to relate to her very easily.  She has had a really tough time, but when tough choices need to be made, she battle through them.  She faces them head on.  I loved Dominik!!!!  I can't wait to see more of him!!!

The only thing I wish the book had was a little more romance.  I am a romance junkie so I love it.  There were little hints here and there so I am hoping to see more in book two.Uprising had a few twist and turns that completely shocked me.  This book was very unique and I recommend it to everyone!!!  I can't wait to read more from this author!!!  This is a great book!!!!  EPIC!!!!
