Title: Rise (A Blood Inheritance Novel)
Author: M. Ainihi
Rating: 5 Badass Skulls/Stars
When Amanda Garrett stumbles across a strange artifact in the woods, she has no idea of the dangerous secret it holds. The teen soon discovers that she has unwittingly released Erol, an imprisoned jinni, and whether she likes it or not, they are bound together until death.
Amanda’s life soon begins to spiral out of control and she finds herself orphaned, kidnapped, and thrust into a terrifying reality. Her captor is convinced that Erol knows the whereabouts of a powerful relic which has been hidden from him and he wants the pair to retrieve it. Still reeling from her loss, and hoping to be spared further pain, Amanda agrees.
As the pair set off on their journey and Amanda learns more about the existence of the realms and the magical beings which reside within them, the clearer it becomes that nothing is quite as it seems.
After Amanda discovers the power of the relic that her captor seeks, the only thing she knows for certain is that her true suffering has only just begun, because no matter how great the sacrifice, she can never allow the relic to fall into her captor’s hands.
Rise is a fast-paced introductory novel to an alternate world where mundane humans are oblivious to the existence of the realms that separate them from other magical races.
When she feels, the darkness closing in around her, Amanda is not sure if she can hold onto a single speck of light, and soon she comes to understand that some secrets are better left buried.

Wow! What a book! When I received this novel I wasn’t sure how I felt about the premise because of my previous experiences but I am so glad I chose to read this debut novel! Rise captured my attention from the very beginning and held it all the way until the end. I was able to read this novel in one sitting and it was completely worth my sleepless night! The story even moved a bit slow at times but I was still turning pages! Trust me, that’s usually a big turn off for my scattered brain but the author’s descriptions were amazing!
This book was beautifully written and I didn’t want the escape of the real world to stop at that time. I found the characters relatable. I LOVED Amanda and could relate to her on so many levels. This may have been more of a YA Fantasy novel but I could feel Amanda’s emotions through the pages and I hurt along with her.
As an adult who survived a terrifying childhood, I have faced many things that would shock the world. Reading this novel helped me face reality through this fantasy. I’m glad I had the chance to read this novel and highly recommend this to anyone who loves a great YA or fantasy novel!
M. Ainihi is a passionate independent author and adventurer. Hailing from the wilds of Upstate New York and currently residing in the Chicagoland area, Rise is her first novel in a planned quartet.

Hello there, Loves! Dani is the name and reviewing and blogging 4 books is game!📚 I am also a free-spirited woman! Some may call me a gypsy or a hippie but that is all good and gravy because I am just customarily me! I am a Tarot & Oracle Reader and have a very strong passion for it. I have a faith of my own that believes fully in my higher self but fully respect others beliefs. I have had Medium, Astroplaning, and Empath abilities my whole life but I am finally putting them to good use within recent years. I love helping people and I'm very open-minded. I also will review Oracle & Tarot Cards and books on my blog as well. If any of this bothers you, I'm sorry but it is who I am. I just ask on my page for everyone to give equal respect! I am an experienced life coach, mental health hotline specialist with my degree in Psychology. I am a complete bibliophile and have a TBR that will outlive me.🌠 I have a fierce passion for the blogosphere because I love sharing my love of reading 📚 and the incredible/amazing and badass people I have met here! I fell in love with reading due to being institutionalised as a child. I have mild dyslexia and battled some huge physical and mental wars as a young child. In the places I was "placed" there wasn't a school more like a daycare and as a child who wanted to be so much more one day, I used books to learn. I treasured every dictionary, textbook and novel I could get my hands on. By the time I was a mid teen, my self taught full bookish education gave me the ability to test above college level and gave me hope.🎸🌠 Since I have become disabled and have lost my ability to spread my social butterfly wings, I in return lost friendships due to my inability to leave home so that left my books. Books opened more doors because it opened me to all of you and now I have the best of friends that the world could offer from the comfort of home. All that mess with being disabled doesnt matter because I have my 3 amazing kids, amazing friends and acquaintances in the World of Blog, and my blog and books give me the super powers to be a badass book blogger! I love people and getting to know people! All that I ask is that anyone on my page treats everyone with equal respect! I am completely open-minded and all about free love. I'm also a very accepting person and I find the beauty in our differences so never feel ashamed to be yourself on this site! 💜💙 Thanks for stopping by Touch My Spine Book Reviews!📚💖💜 I hope your day is full of awesomeness!
