✱✱Book Review✱✱ New Release:The Uprising by Liz Meldon

The Uprising: A Companion Novel 
The Hunt #5
by Liz Meldon

From the ashes, a predator rises.

After stumbling into the supernatural world with her angel-hybrid bestie, Ella Thomas is doing just fine, thank you very much. 

As the only human in her new social circle, Ella refuses to let the weirdness of living with angels, demons, and witches affect her. Not only did she conquer her master’s degree, but the fall term makes teachers’ college a reality, bringing her one step closer to her dream job.

If only her love life was shaping up as smoothly. Lately, every first date has been a dud, every guy Mr. Wrong, and she knows precisely who to blame…

A six-foot-seven hunk of chaos demon who disappeared months ago without a word. Try as she might, Ella can’t get snarky, seductive Malachi out of her head—and it’s driving her freakin’ nuts.

Lurking in shadows, he stalks his prey.

Sensing an opportunity to seize a valuable hell-gate, Malachi Saevitia descends into the pit, butchering and bribing and schmoozing until his name is on the deed to Farrow’s Hollow. No more useless demon mobs wasting a city primed for damnation. No more thuggish brutes making life difficult for his little brother. Under Malachi’s control, the darkness can—and will—flourish.

Before he can choose his faithful lieutenants, however, a summons sent by the Farrow’s Hollow angel garrison reaches him in Hell. Curious, Malachi goes topside, eager to see what the winged bastards want.

Only to once again find himself face-to-face with Ella Thomas. Breathtaking, mouthy, bold, she is the one and only human Malachi cannot seem to forget—a human who makes him fight his instincts and play the hero.

And for a chaos demon, there is no greater sin.

After the raid on Seraphim Securities, a power vacuum splinters the Farrow’s Hollow demon community, and from the pit, a monster stakes his claim—on the city, on the humans within it…

And most of all, on her.

The Uprising is a full-length companion novel to The Hunt, a demon paranormal romance serial. It is a direct follow-up to the four books and cannot be read as a standalone.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The gang's all here for The Uprising, and it is absolutely impossible to put down. I loved Malachi in The Hunt series, so I was excited to read his and Ella's story. Plus, we get the added bonus of Moira and Severus along with Cordelia and Alaric, and of course, they're all right in the thick of things as a new big bad hits Farrow's Hollow. The story is fast paced and filled with everything I've come to expect from Liz Meldon and this series. It's wonderfully written and draws you into a world of supernaturals complete with danger and excitement. Add to that Malachi's snark and the love/hate relationship between the chaos demon and Ella, and this one has it all. The Uprising is book 5 in The Hunt series and should not be read as a standalone. It is, however, one more terrific read in a whole series of them, and as a companion novel, it brings everything together perfectly.
