The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige

the-wicked-will-riseI have a feeling this will end up being my least favorite out of all of the books. Just because I’ve found that the second book in a series like this is usually just filler. In a way, this book meets that assumption. That’s just because by the time it ends, nothing has truly been accomplished. That doesn’t mean it isn’t good! It’s great!!

I did love this book because it answered almost all of my questions from the first book. Forty pages in and I was bragging to my friends how I was, “finally getting answers!!” Of course, after finishing, I have more questions that will – HOPEFULLY – by answered in book three. Also, *possible spoiler alert* but Pete is a friggin’ punk and a half. Never trust a man with big, beautiful, green eyes. -_-

I so desperately wanted Amy to be able to help him. I was trying to think of ways myself! And although I understand his feelings behind what he did, that doesn’t make it okay. Part of me is saying screw him, save Ozma, sayonara Pete . . . but more of me is still saying save both of them, then just never talk to Pete again – that will probably be the better option for Amy. I could have called her “battle with the darkness” from a hundred billion miles away, blindfolded, but I am enjoying how it’s playing out. Every time you think, “Oh. She’s done with it. She knows better now, she’s fine.” Then she’s turning into a – literal – monster right in front of you! These books are great! I’m enjoying them so much.

27 Thoughts I Had During My Week-Long “Game of Thrones” Obsession

***WARNING SPOILERS BELOW***

Man, people weren’t kidding. Death, sex (including, incest and rape), children being injured, the works! All in the first episode!

I had never watched GoT before or read the books. COMPLETELY new fandom for me. I was enthralled.

2. Joffrey gets hit more than anyone else I know.

And those screams of peril! “Ahhh!” I’m sure you’ve all noticed the girl screams and had quite a thrill.

3. Wait, who’s Sansa and who’s Cersei? Why are their names so similar???

4. There’s no way they’re killing Ned, he’s a mai—OMGOMGOMG!

5. Joffrey is the worst….well you know what they say about inbreeding…..

The other two seem normal enough. Well except the whole Myrcella, “I’m glad you had sex with your sister, dad.”

6. Cersei’s name is pretty and she’s pretty, but they are nasty af…

7. Wait, I thought Catelyn didn’t like Snow….oh wait, that’s Robb. Too many lookalikes!!

8. Wait, who’s this? And this? And this?

Why does everyone look the same??

9. I’m such a girl. I’m only paying attention to Sansa, Daenerys, and Arya’s stories. What are the dudes doing?

10. Wait…did he just…? No. no. no. NO. *Looks up spoilers on internet* BETTER NOT BE BRAN AND RIKKON, YOU JERK!!

Although later I do feel suuuuper bad for Theon but come on, Alfie Allen is fire as all get out. He is ACTING as Theon Greyjoy who is ACTING as Reek who is ACTING as Theon Greyjoy. What a time to be alive.

11. Okay, I feel like I heard about this red wedding a couple years ago, right? So if there’s five seasons, must be somewhere here in season three? But when? HOLY FFFFFFF THE BABY!

My mouth literally dropped open when they started just stabbing Talisa in the stomach. I could not believe what I was seeing. And I never knew how much I loved Robb until he wasn’t alive anymore. The more you know.

12. JOFFREY IS CRAP. SERIOUSLY WHEN IS HE DYING??? Oh thank god.

I have never been happier to see a teenager die in my entire life. What a fitting, nasty, ugly end. Good riddance.

13. I knew those Tyrell’s were up to something. I support it. 😀


14. TYRION DIDN’T DO IT! GAAAAAAHHHHH. GO TALK TO THE OLD LADY!

15. Daenerys is seriously my fave character. DIGAF what anyone else thinks? Nada.

The thing is, people say she’s spoiled and whatnot, but she is a GODDESS and a WARRIOR. And she’s gonna win the whole damn thing. AND DRAGONS!!!!!

16. Did they change that actor? Oh, they did.

17. I need to read these books. I’m reading them. *buys book one* this is different, this is different, this is different, I LOVE EVERYTHING.

18. I KNEW SHAE WAS A WHORE, BUT I DIDN’T THINK SHE WAS AN ALL OUT SKANK. CALL HIM LION ONE MORE TIME, HOE!

19. You know nothing, Jon Snow…

But for real, though when Melisandre knew the line. FORESHADOWING……

20. I really hate creepy church people. Leave me alone.

21. I accidentally read spoilers and I know you die, but I love you, boo. (Basically me to every character.)

22. WHERE IS BRAN??

23. Arya is a badass. You get that revenge, girl.

“OYSTERS, CLAMS, AND COCKLES!!”

24. ICE DEATH MONSTERS ARE SCARY AND ARE IN MY NIGHTMARES, THANK YOU GEORGE

No thank you, White Walkers.

25. Is it just me or are we kinda feeling bad for Cersei now? How are they doing this to me???


26. NOT JON. Dude. They are just killing these Stark kids in order, huh?


27. I need to re-watch episode 1……or just the whole show again…..ONWARD!!!

^^ Me watching/reading GoT. I can already tell that I will never not be totally obsessed with this show and book series….here comes the niki fandom. 😉
