Book Review: Raise Hell

 

It’s hard to outrun the ghosts of your past when you can talk to the dead...

Leigh Raelyn should be burned at the stake. Not only did she cause the deaths of her family — she’s also a Lunar witch, bonded with the outlawed element, aether. But hiding an illicit gift is almost impossible when you’re next in line for the throne, and her supply of magical suppressants is dwindling.

So, when she discovers a way to surrender her title, Leigh seizes her chance.

Wilder Dunn will do whatever it takes to ascend the ranks of the Borealis Blades — so long as it gives him the power to bring his sister’s killers to their knees. But as the son of a traitor, he is failing to gain favor with the Council. When Wilder agrees to protect the princess ahead of her coronation, he hopes to prove fealty to authority. Until he discovers the real reason for his employment...

With Wilder’s help, Leigh goes in search of her throne-bargaining secret: the truth behind Corona’s centuries-old peace treaties. But as the pair spiral closer to a realm-shattering revelation, only one thing is clear: to fix the world order they need to break it...and possibly, their own hearts too.

RAISE HELL is the first book in the Eleventh Hour series by Brit KS. This fantasy romance is filled with witches, vampires, ancient laws, tech mixed with magic, and slow-burn lovers.


My Review

I enjoyed this fantastical journey that author, Brit took me on with this book. As soon as I started reading, I had a good idea of who was who and the world that this story took place within. You can say that I was engaged in the story. 

Because of what Leigh had endured and was trying to atone for, I was rooting for her. In addition, that I liked seeing her learn more about her abilities and how to use them. Wilder had a bit of mystery about him that made him interesting. Together, these two did work well together. 

There are other characters featured in this story that I did find intriguing as well. One is Selene. She has a bit of a sassy edge to her that I liked. There is witty banter throughout this book. Look forward to seeing how this series continues.
