Galilee Rising

The Galilee Falls Trilogy, #2

I have to say that I was so happy to get back into this book and find out how Joanna was holding up after everything that happened in the first book. As we get back into the story we find Joanna still trying to pick up the pieces and get on with her life. I loved that throughout all that was thrown at her Joanna was holding herself together and functioning just fine. This time around we learn that there are new heroes in town to deal with a new villain. I have to say that I immediately liked these new heroes and was happy to see them since Justice was gone. They worked well together as a team and it was cool seeing Joanna also work with them.

As we get further into the story we learn that it may take some serious work to take down the villain that is out to hurt the whole city and one hero in particular. I loved that this time I pretty much figured out the heroes’ true identities early on and it made me love them even more once I knew who they were. This book was one again full of plenty of action and was a great read that had be hooked from the first page.

Overall this was a really amazing read and I loved it more than the first book. The author creates characters that make you fall in love with them and get invested in their story. I was so happy to see how everything played out and the happily ever after that Joanna was able to achieve. I think with all she had been through it was what she deserved. I would highly recommend this one to others.

Love in the time of superheroes...

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” -Confucius

The year since Galilee Falls lost its reigning superhero Justice has not been kind to Joanna Fallon. She's lost her best friend, her boyfriend, her badge, even her mind. The city of Galilee Falls hasn't fared much better with supervillain related crime skyrocketing to cataclysmic proportions.

Deliverance for the city arrives in the guise of The Royal Triumvirate--King Tempest, Lady Liberty, and Lord Nightingale--who vow to be the heroes the city needs. Salvation for Joanna appears in the brilliant form of Dr. Jem Ambrose, another lost soul in need of saving. But salvation comes with a high price.

When Emperor Cain, an old nemesis of The Triumvirate, decides he will stop at nothing to make sure there is no city left to defend, it is up to Joanna to rise not only for her city, for her new love, but for herself as well…
