BLOG TOUR: Rise by Sierra Cross

Sierra Cross
(Coven of Fire, #1)
Publication date: June 15th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy
I closed the door on magic long ago…the day it made me an orphan.
Ten years ago, the Coven of Fire sacrificed their lives—my mother among them—to hold off an overwhelming demonic force. Now it’s back.
As a poorly-paid bartender, how can any of this be my problem? But Callie, another orphan of that battle, swears I’m the key to reviving the coven. And there’s an incredibly sexy guardian stranded on my couch who’s promising to help me stop the demons and keep the veil between the realms standing.
One problem: I’ve never been able to use magic. Our local bad boy warlock assures me I have the talent, but even if I did, we don’t have enough witches to complete a coven. The only way to survive is to pull together this pack of magicborn misfits, who have more secrets than spells, into a makeshift coven.
Can we—three untrained witches, a sarcastic warlock, and an overly intense guardian—take back the city…before the demongate falls and the forces that killed my mother destroy us too?

Claire's Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I don't get to read this genre of books very often anymore and so when I saw the synopsis for this one, I jumped at it, and I'm glad I did.

This book follows the life of Alix, a bartender who was born a witch, however, she is frustrated that she doesn't seem to have inherited her family's powers. Life hasn't been easy and she lost her parents in a freak accident when she was young...But things are about to change and she is about to find out that maybe she isn't as powerless as she thought.

I really enjoyed this story. I did find it a bit predictable but it didn't stop my enjoyment of the story. Well written, and developed characters and storyline. I will definitely be looking out for more books in this series.
