Review: Risen – Christine James
Erin’s unexpected arrival has put a damper on Angie’s love life. Granted, she and Blaze haven’t been together for quite some time, but she can’t deny she cares for him, none-the-less. She knows Erin is the one the prophecies have spoken about for centuries, and that her relationship with her beloved isn’t what she thinks it is.
However, she can’t quite seem to set aside the jealousy that boils to the surface every time she sees Blaze and Erin together. Angie knows Erin isn’t a true threat. Yet she can’t find it within herself to befriend the beautiful Nephilim. Nor can she find it within herself to accept the love Blaze wishes to share with her for the rest of his life.
There’s something roiling deep within her. Something she can’t explain. The alien feeling is doing its best to consume her, even though she’s doing her best to ignore it. Her unexpected rages and the incessant restlessness are a cause for alarm. She knows she’s needs to come clean about what she’s been experiencing as of late, but the fear of rejection is far too strong. Most especially when she can sense that not everyone is what they seem to be with her.
Vowing to set aside her differences with Erin for the sake of the task at hand, Angie soon has a hard time making sense of what’s going on. The voices in her head are getting stronger, and her actions don’t seem to be her own at all. Something, or someone, is pulling her along, and she’s not sure as to what to make of it. The question is, can she succeed in overcoming the darkness that threatens to consume her from deep within? Or will she allow it to claim here, once and for all?
This is definitely another lovely addition to The Chosen series. I enjoyed this second book, and was delighted to see that Blaze and Angie did get a little closer. Granted, love triangle and the ending were a little unexpected. While this book also ends on a little cliffhanger, it does tie up some loose ends that book one left behind. Definitely looking forward to what book three has to bring.
Synopsis for Risen:
Blaze and Angie were happy, or so she thought. There was a restlessness growing inside her that not even she could explain. How could she trust his love when she wasn’t able to trust herself?
They thought the battle was finished when they sent Satan back to hell, so how could they have known another threat, larger than Satan himself, was looming on the horizon? This time the stakes are higher and the game much more deadly. Something is coming and it will shatter everything they have ever known. Can they stop it before it has Risen?

About The Author:
I’m a born and raised small town girl. I love fishing, camping, big and loud trucks, but don’t let my boots fool ya, I can slip out of my boots and into a pair of heels in no time flat! I love books and movies and it seems that there is never enough time to read or watch them all. I bake and decorate cakes (in my free time) pffft what’s that right?
My husband is my world. He has been my cheerleader as I strive to achieve my writing goals; he’s helped pick me up and dust me off when I get rejected; he laughs with me, and more times than not he laughs AT me, and he lends a shoulder for me to cry on. He’s my rock but more importantly he is my best friend. We have two beautiful sons, Dillyn (8) and Traben (2). They are my angels and by becoming an author I want to show them that their dreams can come true. I have something that not many people can brag about. I have my parents (both amazing God Fearing people married 31 years) and my AMAZING in-laws (married 44 years) these two couples are part of my inspiration. I am also fortunate to call my three younger brothers my best friends. I have a few close friends that have helped me come so far.
I value my relationships and treat them all like rare gems, because they are all special and unique in their own way. I love making people laugh, no matter what. Life is too short to be so serious all the time.
Writing has always been a dream of mine. It’s been a comfort when I’m hurting and an outlet when I’m mad. It is my security blanket.
