Debut author, Mark S. Moore, introduces us to his historical fantasy novel, “Rise: Birth of a Revolution”:
Mark S. Moore's debut novel follows the fledgling Ricchan rebellion. A dark and gritty tale of war, intrigue, and betrayal. Rise is driven by a diverse array of complex characters and moral consequence. Between muskets and firebrands, Damien Flynn finds himself in the midst of growing turmoil. Political espionage, assassinations, scandalous affairs, underhanded deals, and dirty politics threaten to plunge the known world into chaos. What makes a patriot? What makes a traitor?
The desire to be free and make your own choices is a huge part of the human experience, no one wants to be a slave. This book taps into that theme very effectively. Change a few names and this could be the story of every free society on earth.
This book brings a great mix of big picture events, the people who cause them and the people who are caught up in them.
I enjoyed the dialogue tremendously; personalities are captured so well. The action is plentiful without being overwhelming. The scene setting is very well done, just enough to avoid getting in the way. The characters are gorgeous, so real and full of life.
I give “Rise: Birth of a Revolution” 4.9 stars! The score would have been higher except for a handful of spelling errors that the author has corrected. Your reading experience will be that much smoother.
