Rising is Volume 2 of the Dark Surf Series by T.C. Zmak. When the Rogues attacked the Nomads, they bit off more than they could chew. Jake and Leilani are on their trail, chasing Dean to stop him before he can build up his clan once again, and to save Skylar from what could be the worse decision of her life. She doesn’t know what secrets Dean is hiding, what lies he has told her, and nobody could begin to guess what she will do if she finds out. For Jake and Leilani, the war is on and the bodies are beginning to mount up. But there is a new enemy in sight, one that threatens their very existence. Can Jake and Leilani stop Dean before it’s too late? Is Tristan truly gone for good?
Rising (Dark Surf Volume 2) by T.C. Zmak is another fantastic story, a great sequel to Dark Surf. Although it starts where Dark Surf ended, there is still enough information provided for those who didn’t read the first book to know what it’s all about. Things get somewhat more complicated as the cast list grows and the story stretches along the coast. The story is every bit as good as the first part, perhaps a little deeper, and with those all-important twists and turns that keep a reader hooked. It is a fast-paced story, one of those that you just can’t put down, especially if you have read the first book in the series and need to know what happens. The character development continues as we learn more about the main characters and the new ones we meet along the way. This is another page turner and I highly recommend it for anyone who likes the vampire/paranormal genre. Please read book 1 first to get the best experience from this story. Really looking forward to book 3 now; I can’t wait
