Analiese Rising
by Brenda Drake
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: January 8th 2019
Entangled Teen


When a stranger gives Analiese Jordan a list of names before he dies, the last thing she expects to see is her own on it. Not. Cool. Her search for answers leads to the man’s grandson, Marek, who has dangerous secrets of his own. Both are determined to unlock the mystery of the list.

But the truth is deadly. Analiese is a descendant of the God of Death, known as a Riser, with the power to raise the dead and control them. Finding out she has hidden powers? Cool. Finding out she turns corpses into killers? No, thank you.

Now the trail plants her and Marek in the middle of a war between gods who apparently want to raise an army of the Risen, and Analiese must figure out how to save the world—from herself.

My Review:

Analiese witness an accident involving an old man when she tries to help the old man he tells her not to touch him. He gives Analiese a bag and asks her to take it to his grandson. The old man also explains to her that she is in danger. When she gets home she knows she shouldn’t look inside the bag as it does not belong to her but she can’t resist. Inside the bag she finds a piece of pager with a list of names on it. Some are crossed out and some are not. The most confusing or terrifying thing about the list is that Analisese’s name as well as her parents name is on the list as well. Why is her name and her parents name on the list?

Analiese takes the bag to the old man’s grandson and they work together to find out why her name is on the list and why? When she finds the old man’s grandson Marek she learns that he has secrets of his own. Marek’s grandfather use to play games with him giving him clues so he could figure out the puzzle but Marek was not any good at. Analiese and Marek work together to try and figure out what clues the list have and what it means.

Their quest takes them on a long journey finding the clues that his grandfather left him. Analiese and Marek must solve each clue in order to move on to the next one. Everywhere they go they keep running into Gods and Goddess from all over the world. Some are good and some are evil. Analiese and Marek don’t know a clue who they can trust. Dangers lurk around every corner. A war between the Gods and Goddess is imminent.

Analiese Rising will have you guessing right up until the end not wanting to give up its secrets. You won’t be able to flip the pages fast enough to see what is waiting for Analiese and Marek on the next corner or what God or Goddess is lurking nearby.

Analiese Rising is for anyone who likes a good fantasy mixed with mythology and a great adventure. 

About the Author

Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda's world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there's always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she's not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
