New Orleans
Saint Louis
Number One Cemetery
A night there can change a life . . . or a death.

Increasingly worried that dark spirits will carry out their threats and hurt the people she cares for most, Amelia is ready to try anything to protect them. And for his own very different reasons, Joshua has come to this cemetery at midnight to join her in a powerful ritual.

Both know that once Amelia steps inside the Voodoo circle and the beautiful girl from the Conjure Cafe begins the ceremony, everything will change.

Tara Hudson's enthralling sequel to "Hereafter" escalates the danger and excitement, bringing a new dimension to her already mesmerizing story of a haunted love.

My Review: 
**2.5 Stars**

I was really disappointed with Arise. I have really liked Amelia's story in the first book and had hoped that it would continue just as well and as exciting. It just felt like it was almost a repeat of the first book, just in a different setting and with Amelia knowing who/what she is.

Also, it was kind of annoying how Joshua and Jillian could communicate with Amelia. They would look like crazy people walking down the street having conversations with themselves. At least get a blue-tooth and put it in your ear.

So, even though I didn't really enjoy Arise, I will be reading the next book because I loved Gabriella. I want to find out what happens to her.
