Rise (The Elysium Chronicles 0.6) by J.A. Souders ~ Review by Fallon
4 Out of 5 Stars
Timothy has lived his entire life in darkness, under the oppressive rule of Mother in the underwater city of Elysium. As part of the Underground, a rebel group opposing Mother’s dictatorship, he has one role: get close to the Daughter of the People, Miss Evelyn, in order to obtain enough information to take her and Mother down.
He wasn’t supposed to fall in love with Evie.
He wasn’t supposed to care.
And now he has a choice: risk everything – his life, his mission, his people - to protect her…or sacrifice her for the justice of all.
RISE is a chilling prequel to RENEGADE, an Elysium Chronicles short story.
This was a fast paced interesting prequel and I was happy to get a glimpse of Mother. I liked this read and it was entertaining from beginning to end. I did however feel it was almost too short to feel the emotions behind Timothy and Evelyn. I am excited for more short stories ahead. This was still a great read into something that sparks a change underwater in Elysium. I am giving this 4 out of 5 Stars.
