'Emergence' review

‘Emergence’, the last novel in Rachel E. Fisher’s breathtaking trilogy ‘Eden’s Root’, proves to be a moving, cathartic closure to the series. While I always focus on Fi, the truth is, I fell in love with all of the characters, especially Asher and Sean.

Without dropping plot bombs here, I will only say that I applaud the way these characters have grown through their trials and heartache but still –always- maintain a sense of youth and spark. Even in their darkest hours, even when Fi is in “the nothing”, I never lose sight of what makes her her. As the war with the Truthers rages, I still see Fi for Fi, Asher for Asher, etc… Fisher’s characters do not grow into strangers, changing too fast for readers to comprehend. They grow into themselves. They flourish in dust and blood as real people do.

Fisher doesn’t hold back. She never has. That’s what makes the ‘Eden’s Root’ series great. But I will admit, while I usually shy away from such endings, I did have a rewarding smile on my lips as I read the final pages. I felt a wholeness, and that is quite a feat for an author to accomplish.

There. I know this review sounds elusive, but so much happens in ‘Emergence’ and I don’t want to spoil it for fellow readers. 

I loved it! Fisher brings the series to a close with heart.
