Fans of Vampire Diaries and Twilight will be thirsting for this latest vampire addiction…

My aunt has been kidnapped by vampires, and it’s up to me to save her. Only…I had no idea vampires existed. None. Nada. I’m more of a reader than a fighter, and even though I’d been wishing to escape my boring existence in the middle of nowhere, I’d give anything to have it back now if it meant my aunt was safe.

Then there’s the vampire Sebastian, who seems slightly nicer than most of the bloodsuckers I’ve run into so far. Yes, he’s the hottest being I’ve ever come across, but there’s no way I can trust him. He swears he’s helping me get answers, but there’s more to his story. Now I’m a key pawn in a raging vampire war, and I need to pick the right ally.

But my chances of surviving this war are slim at best, when the side I choose might be the one that wants me dead the most.


5 stars: "I'm so glad Risen raised vampires from the dead. I love vampires and it never gets old so long as it's written well, and Cole Gibsen delivers.” —Sasha Hibbs, author of Black Amaranth 

5 stars: "This was a complete surprise. As much as I tend to love vampire novels, they usually get repetitive after a while. Risen defied my expectations and kept me on my toes." —Alice, The Alley-Cat7 

5 stars: "Risen is a fresh addition to the world of vampire fiction. With its unique plot and captivating characters I was hooked from the first paragraph." —Jess Wright, Goodreads Reviewer 

5 stars: "I strongly recommend this book because it's a fun read and a unique-ish twist on vampire/supernatural books that we see today." —Tashy, Goodreads Reviewer 

4.5 stars: "From the first pages, I was totally hooked by the story. The writing is really smooth, pleasant and the action starts already in the first chapter." —Elodie, Further West 

5 stars: "This well developed storyline has it all from three vampire clans that have different gifts to action and just the right amount of romance and I love the characters." —Laura, YA/NA Book Divas 

5 stars: "I have never read anything from this author before. Risen was a well written story that kept you interested." —Kathy Dinisi, author of A Vacation From Hell 

4.5 stars: "Charlie is spunky, defiant, and sarcastic. I liked her immediately. She's also pretty fierce at times." —Kristi, Confessions of a YA Reader 

5 stars: "I love Charlie as a character. she's so strong and she always follows her heart even when it leads her to dangerous situations. She makes me want to be kidnapped by vampires but only if it's Sebastian or Edward." —Tiffany, Tiffany's Book Reviews & Blog 

5 stars: "I didn't know I needed a new Vampire obsession in my life, but Risen has fuelled that fire and jeeze did I love it! Ignore the tagline saying it's like Vampire Diaries and Twilight; it's so much better than those books!" —Gem, @gemlovesbooks 

5 stars: "I don’t know where to start with this book. Every aspect is outstanding! A true work of art." —GG Reads 

5 stars: "This was definitely a "one more chapter" read for me as I found myself half way through the book on the first night and finishing it the next day." —Erica Toole, Netgalley Reviewer

By Deborah February 17, 2018

This is an interesting YA vampire romance with a difference. And with so many vampire reads out there now it’s difficult sometimes to find one that stands out.

The main difference here is we have three different types/clans of vampires. The Mentis clan are what most of us would relate to as vampir... ...more

I just finished “Risen” the first book in the Blood Eternal series and it was very good! I previously read another book from the same author called “Life unaware”, it was not my favorite, but I wanted to give her another chance and I was right!

I didn't know I needed a new Vampire obsession in my life, but Risen has fuelled that fire and jeeze did I love it!
Ignore the tagline saying it's like Vampire Diaries and Twilight; it's so much better than those books!
To me, it's more comparable to the epic series by Will Hill, Department 19.

"Risen" is an interesting new vampire romance (don't judge it by the cover- it's much more bubbly and YA-ey than it would appear). Charlie is a normal teenage girl who lives with her reclusive aunt and is homeschooled. Charlie has always dreamed of branching out on her own and living the true nor... ...more

Huge thanks to Netgalley and Entangled Teen for the e-arc for this book.
