Title: The Risen: Courage
Author: Marie F. Crow
Release Date: December 20th 2013
When everything shatters into madness, how do you pick up the pieces that are left? When your friends lie bleeding around you, which ones do you fight to save? To find these answers, Helena Hawthorn will have to face the ghosts that now walk the halls around her.
In the wake of J.D.’s madness, Helena and G.R.I.T. will have to find the courage to fight for their home and for each other as a new evil takes hold of their lives. The biggest threat to the high school and its survivors is no longer the Risen, and G.R.I.T. will have to fight to survive.
This book packed a powerful punch! It has action, horror, and those emotional moments that Miss Crow seems to bring with each book. Who can scare you and make you feel things at the same time? She can and she does with this series. The characters she’s created have become family. I’m fully invested in what happens to Helena and crew. I have my favorites! Everyone is recovering and dealing with the aftermath of what happened in Dawning. Things seem to keep getting better and better. No, that was sarcasm. Just when they think they’ve handled the crisis, something happens to make the next one even worse.
I was captivated right from the beginning! I didn’t put the book down once. I was rapidly turning pages because I needed to know what would happen next. There’s a surprise at the end that I didn’t put together right away. If you know me and my reviews, then you know how I really dig when that happens. Bravo Miss Crow! I’ll be not so patiently waiting for the next book. I give this 5 stars.
