RISING Reviews


Kirkus Reviews

“The book does an excellent job of developing the players’ connections beyond those initial sparks and through further and further trials, making this sequel a real treat to read, maybe even more than the original. Delivering the salt- and blood-kissed depths readers expect, this vampire tale is everything a sequel should be.” — Kirkus Reviews

Review Rating: 5 stars! 

“Rising (Dark Surf Volume 2) by T.C. Zmak is another fantastic story, a great sequel to Dark Surf. Although it starts where Dark Surf ended, there is still enough information provided for those who didn’t read the first book to know what it’s all about. … The story is every bit as good as the first part, perhaps a little deeper, and with those all-important twists and turns that keep a reader hooked. It is a fast-paced story, one of those that you just can’t put down.”

“This book is very easy to read, the action moves along swiftly, and the language is pure surfer Californian.”
