Half-Blood meets Antigoddess in a thrilling, romantic new series from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Drake.

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.

What’s a hidden power you wouldn’t want to have (and what would you want!)?

I wouldn’t want to be immortal like the gods and goddesses in Analiese Rising. Every mortal you love would die. Since you wouldn’t grow older, you’d have to leave them early in life as they age. You’d out live your family and friends. Always hiding your immortality, worrying that someone will discover what you are, would get tiring. It would be lonely.

The power I would want is the one to heal people. I’ve seen many people suffer from illness and wished I could remove their pain. Make them better. It would be tiring trying to save everyone, but I’d cure as many people as I could. It would be great if everyone could die of old age and go gently in their sleep. There are so many powers I’d want, but since I had to pick one, that’s the one I’d choose.


About 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. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she's not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
