Riser is Book #1 in The Riser Saga

Black
swirling holes churning madly in the center of every corpse. This is how
eighteen-year-old Chelsan Derée sees the deceased. Her ability to connect to
the black spinning holes allows her to control every dead thing within a
four-mile radius.

But that’s the least of her problems. It’s 2320 and Chelsan Derée has to
survive another year of high school, which for her is pure and utter torture,
mainly due to the fact that her schoolmate Jill Forester’s favorite activity is
making Chelsan’s life a living hell. If that isn’t enough, Chelsan’s impossible
crush on Ryan Vaughn makes her brain do somersaults on a regular basis,
especially since she is positive he doesn’t know she exists. And being eighteen
Chelsan has to deal with the pressure of whether or not she should take a
little pill called Age-pro, which cures aging, making the world eighteen
forever and highly over-populated.

When Chelsan’s mother, Janet, is brutally killed, along with everyone else in
her trailer park, Chelsan finds out that she was the intended target. Chelsan
must use her power to raise and control the dead to save herself, protect her
friends and take down the man responsible for murdering her mother.

My Review 🙂  
 

I wanted to love this book as much as everyone. And it is a fantastic book. But I just couldn’t enjoy it as much as the hype lead me to believe I would. Sometimes I think the hype destroys the book in a way that it has to live up to a high expectation that most things can’t. 

Riser shows the truth about high school and the struggle. It brings the bully side of high school up front and in your face. And if high school isn’t enough trouble you have to know that your mother dies because someone was after you and rather or not you want to stop your aging. Seems like 18 is going to be a tough year for those in years of 2320.

Grab a copy and find out just how Chelsan deals with everything being tossed at her.  It is a bit slow but once you hit that special speed button you’ll be turning pages like fire.
