    Sexy with big characters and big action

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy: When you mix incredibly powerful witches and hot djinns who are tied to their lamps for hundreds of years, you get the incredibly sexy RISING FOR AUTUMN, which surprised me in a few different ways: for such a short book, it had big action, big characters, and an even bigger story. Alanna was an amazing character you don’t often get to read about. In urban fantasy, the heroes and heroines are often part of small knit groups or lone wolves (no shifter reference intended). Alanna is in charge of dozens of staff within the coven head quarters, and together they are in charge of protecting an entire city. She is responsible for the witches and the humans in her city, which means she keeps herself separate from her staff, even from the ones she dares call friends. Sam keeps himself separated too, but it’s because of his long life and the nature of his servitude. He keeps everyone at arm’s length in case whoever gets his lamp next orders him to hurt his friends and loved ones out of spite. He’s been forced to work for some very evil people, and he’s done more evil than he can reconcile his heart with. Watching these two get together was definitely the highlight of the story for me, but the action was nothing to scoff at: there were multiple dramatic battles and conflicts that were well written and really managed to capture how desperate things had gotten in Philadelphia. The book hints at a fourth instalment in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles, and with the naming scheme, we would expect it. If it stars a hot mercenary who can’t seem to pick a side, I’m in, especially if it's a bit longer than this one.

    not as good as one and two.

    Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Alanna puts up a front,a facade. She is, after all, head witch at the Philadelphia coven and has to show no emotion, be as hard as ice. And for a long time, she was able to cope with that. But Sam, the djinn whose lamp now rests in her vaults, makes her want to melt that ice. But he hates her, she won't give him his lamp back so he can be finally free of that prison. When the Order of the Serpent rears its ugly head again, and necromancers start raising the dead, they have to work together. And they each see aside to the other no one else sees. This is book three in the series and I would recommend that you read the other two, Hunting for Spring and Scrying for Summer before this one. It would help greatly to understand the Order and what they did to Sam and Liam. I loved books one and two and was eagerly awaiting this but one, but for me, it fell a little flat and I can't figure out why *insert wailing* and you know how that stresses me! It's very well written from both Alanna and Sam's point of view. And I did like their story, I just didn't love it like the other two. It is ,again, a while before Alanna and Sam give in to their feelings and it does get kinda messy, what with the necromancers raising the dead for their army to destroy not only the coven, but Philadelphia itself. Alanna has to face her biggest fear and Sam faces his demons, but his is an altogether different kettle of fish! I did like that Alanna was plotting, planning for Sam, long before they got together. Not telling you what though, because that's spoilers, but we don't get just WHAT she was plotting and planning til the very end. I loved that! I'm assuming there will be a winter book, but I'm not entirely sure who that book might be about. Maybe Cami and Dante after their . . . . . . .trip to the Otherworld. Although I'm not sure trip is the right word. Doesn't matter who it's about. I'd still like to read it. I'm hoping that the Order will be defeated once and for all in that book! Still a solid 4 star read, even if I didn't enjoy it as much as book two.
