Genre: Paranormal, Witches, Magic, New Adult, Fantasy


Mysterious claimings, kidnappings, and disasters are occurring the world over. Sara McKay knows that can only mean one thing--the fata, magical beings from the planet Hecate intent on ruling Earth, are growing stronger.

With the help of their pneumas, benevolent fata souls residing inside Sara and her sisters Lily and Evelyn, the McKay witches of Ireland prepare for war.

However, with Sara no longer playing peacekeeper between Lily and Evelyn, strong insecurities stemming from Sara's past make a reappearance in her life. Once the most powerful triplet, she struggles to master the lifesaving skills the pneumas introduce and fully integrate with the supernatural soldiers flocking to Fern Cottage.

Will Sara's instability help Noro and King Dimia drive a wedge between the triplets the fata forces can exploit? Or will Sara's issues be just the thing the Triplet Army needs to win an otherworldly war?

My Review:

People are disappearing all over the world. They are being taken by the fata, magical beings from the planet Hecate. The fata are making plans to take over the Earth and are becoming stronger as they build their army.

Meanwhile, Sara, Evelyn, and Lily are gathering an army of their own to aid them in their fight against the fata. Sara, Evelyn, and Lily have the help of their pneumas, benevolent fata souls residing inside them. The pneumas come from past lives. Evelyn and Lily have released their pneumas but Sara is having a hard time figuring out just how to release hers.

The sisters are preparing for war against the fata. They are playing games with werewolves, vampires, and other paranormal creatures to help build their strength for the coming battle.

I enjoyed these games between all the supernatural creatures. Some of the battles were very dangerous making me wonder if they were going to make it out alive.

Rising of Three had me hooked from the first page with battle after battle. The action and suspense never let up from one minute to the next. I could see it all playing out in my head as if I was right there fighting alongside the girls. The description of all the scenes was so vividly written I felt as if I was a part of it.

Have you ever had one of those authors where you didn’t have to read the summary of a book that they have written to know that you wanted to read it? Well, Ashley is one of those authors for me. Once I pick up one of her books I can’t lay it down until I have read the last page.

I highly recommend Rising of Three to all paranormal fans out there. One-click your copy of Rising of Three today! If you have not read the first two books in this trilogy then I would suggest that you start with Prophecy of Three book one and Souls of Three book two before reading the last book Rising of Three as they are not standalone.
