When a stranger gives Analiese Jordan a list of names before he dies, the last thing she expects to see is her own on it. Not. Cool. Her search for answers leads to the man’s grandson, Marek, who has dangerous secrets of his own. Both are determined to unlock the mystery of the list.

But the truth is deadly. Analiese is a descendant of the God of Death, known as a Riser, with the power to raise the dead and control them. Finding out she has hidden powers? Cool. Finding out she turns corpses into killers? No, thank you.

Now the trail plants her and Marek in the middle of a war between gods who apparently want to raise an army of the Risen, and Analiese must figure out how to save the world—from herself.

“An exuberant runaround, carried along by the heady rush of first love.” – Kirkus

“…Analiese Rising is a fantasy, Greek mythology romance that kept me guessing until the end.” – D.M., Goodreads

“...a fast-paced whirlwind that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the very first page.” –Katey Rossie, Kindley Katey

“Fast-paced. Mystery. Hang on for the ride. Loved it.” – Ipuna Black, Goodreads

“This book took me out of a reading slump. The mystery and pacing took over from the very start and never let up. It's been a while since I've genuinely felt just entertained by a read and this story delivered.” – Natalie Sue, Goodreads

“If you enjoy Rick Riordan books, a good mystery and mythology then you'll definitely enjoy this!” – Neonila, Goodreads

Analiese Rising was a page-turner from the start. Drake did not wait at all for the action to start with a frog coming back to life in biology class, which I absolutely loved.” – Amy, Goodreads

I absolutely love mythology and love when authors mix it into the current world settings. Going in, I didn't know that this book would be so entrenched with mythology so that was a very pleasant surprise.

About the author

NY Times Best Selling Author

Brenda Drake

Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda's world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there's always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she's not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
