    One thought on “Galilee Rising”

    1. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy 2013 will go down as the year that I discovered Jennifer Harlow. I have devoured everything she’s written so far – three F.R.E.A.K.S. books, the Midnight Magic book, and both books published so far in the Galilee Falls trilogy. This is to say, I may be a bit of a fangirl. However, I do think it’s deserved. With GALILEE RISING, Harlow steps up the game a bit. Whereas her other books are a bit more lighthearted, the Galilee Falls trilogy has a dark [...]

    2. I'm going to say this right away. I was slightly disappointed with Galilee Rising. I mean, it was still a likable book and the last 10 to 7 chapters I couldn't stop reading because I wanted to know what was going to happen yet it wasn't enough to wow me like the first book, Justice, did.I guess the main reason for not loving this book was that a lot had changed between the ending of Justice and the beginning of Galilee Rising. It was quite shocking. I guess I just do not well with change. I did [...]

    3. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: An action-packed thriller filled with bad decisions, deception and hope.Opening Sentence: God, how I love this city.The Review:Last year, I had the pleasure of reading Justice by Jennifer Harlow. It was the first book in the Galilee Falls Trilogy and I absolutely loved it. Justice was one of my favorite books of the year. Galilee Rising is the sequel to Justice and while it didn’t quite live up to what I loved about Justice, it was still a [...]

    4. My first comment: Good, but not as good as the first one. Once again, probably my favorite part of this book was the voice. Again narrated by the main character, Joanna Fallon, the book has that refreshing, take-no-shit outlook to everything. I think, however, with Joanna's big life change after the first book, the chance to really hear this voice in more exciting context is lost. Instead of being a detective who spends her time actually IN the action, she is now the heiress of the Pendergast fo [...]

    6. *Genre* Science Fiction*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts**Galilee Rising was provided to me by the author Jennifer Harlow in lieu of an honest assessment of the book.*Galilee Rising takes place almost a full year after the ending of Justice (Galilee Falls # 1). For 33 year old Joanna Fallon, her entire life has been fundamentally changed and there is no going back in time and wishing that things could be different or that she could change who she's become. Joanna went from being a disgraced cop with no b [...]

    7. Ms. Harlow has created another exciting chapter in her superhero series that kept me on the edge of my seat and my emotions on a rollercoaster ride from start to finish. Joanna's still recovering from the dark place she went to following the death of her friend/soul mate Justin in the previous book. Relying on alcohol and isolation almost killed her, as did her survivor's guilt, but she's slowly coming back to life. With a trio of new superheroes on the scene she has found purpose once again, al [...]

    8. Holy crud, Joanna hasn't had an easy year. And with some of the foreshadowing I see for book 3 (unless I'm just projecting, which is ENTIRELY possible), things are going to get rougher once certain truths come to light. Honestly, I don't know what to think. I DON'T KNOW! I'm on the "there's potential for complete happiness and yet THINGS ARE GOING TO COME TO A HEAD! I CAN FEEL IT!" emotional roller coaster. Well played, Jennifer Harlow. Well played.So, book 1 in this series kind of gutted me. Wh [...]

    9. So, this is what Jennifer Harlow serves up for the second helping of Galilee Falls Pie. And it's really good.Joanna Fallon returns, one year after the events in Justice. She has inherited Justin's house, butler Dobbs, and the Justice Cave, complete with Justice Computer. She may not be a super hero herself, but using the Justice Computer, she does what she does best: help the people of Galilee Falls. But this time, she has help in the form of the Royal Triumvirate; King Tempest, Lady Liberty, an [...]

    10. I was shocked when I started reading GALILEE FALLS, so much has changed since the ending of JUSTICE and the start of book 2 it takes a minute to catch up with time. And don't think that the twists and turns are over with Justices 'death' because they just get more complex. The synopsis above does a pretty good job explaining the book so I wont bore you with my take on events. Joanna is more determined than ever not to be shoved in a protected corner. When The Royal Triumvirate show up in her cav [...]

    11. Braine's Talk Supe reviewGALILEE RISING is the heart stopping second book in Jennifer Harlow's Galilee Falls Trilogy. Let me get this out of the way before I proceed. Ms. Harlow, please don't end the series yet! These superheroes are the gifts that keeps on giving and I hope you'll consider extending the expiration date of this brilliant series of yours. I don't know how you're going to do it, overdose on your magic juju juice, talk with the leprechauns in your backyard, have your Muses serenade [...]

    12. The conclusion to the Galilee Falls trilogy just came out earlier this month and as soon as I finished it I embarked on a reread of the whole series. It's really holding up for me and still as enjoyable the second time through as it was the first.The first book in the series was very much an urban fantasy novel with a great set up to the world where superheroes really exist and the city where the trilogy is focused, Galilee Falls. This book is a bit more relationship focused. There is still the [...]

    13. I absolutely loved book one, JUSTICE, when I read it. Harlow knocks it out of the park again with this second installment. Vivid, vibrant, dreary, human, action-packed, and full of human emotion, this was an incredible follow up to Justice that is easily termed a kindle-bruiser. I couldn't put it down once I started.It's been nearly a year since we left Galilee Falls. Joanna self-destructed after Justin's death: her alcoholism skyrocketed, she self-sabotaged her relationship with Harry (and I wa [...]

    14. The second book the Galilee Falls series, "Galilee Rising" returns us to the story of Police Detective Joanna Fallon about a year after the previous book "Justice".Now head of Pendergast Industries, Joanna has been using Doris, Justice's crime fighting supercomputer, to help her old supervisor at the Police Department. She is less than thrilled with the arrival of a supergroup known as the "Royal Triumvirate" to Galilee Falls, especially when they demand access to Doris.As with the first book, " [...]

    15. So I'm kind of in love with anything Jennifer Harlow's written"With GALILEE RISING, Harlow steps up the game a bit. Whereas her other books are a bit more lighthearted, the Galilee Falls trilogy has a darker, more sinister bent, a more damaged heroine, and no vampires, witches, or werewolves in sight The Galilee Falls trilogy reads a little bit like a written version of a comic book. Obviously, there’s superheros, but there’s also underground lairs with crazy technology, double identities, l [...]

    16. While I'm reading this book I sadly tell at my son (who reads comics) about poor King Tempest and he answers that is so for the good ones super heroes but after Justice I would have liked more happy time also for Joanna, poor her too, always finishes to hospital . Apart for this I enjoyed reading this story, not as the first book but close enought. I liked Harry more than Jem but I'm happy for Joanna who finally has found her match . This series is truly extraordinary, unique for being romance,f [...]

    17. There are very few books that force me to shoot up out of a comfortable bed at 2am- with a heart beating so fast I can practically hear it and a sudden heat flush as I furiously clutch my kindle thinking "THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN OH MY GOD I DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING OH MY HOLY F**KING HELL JEEZ OH MY WHAT?! NOOOOO!? WHAT OH MY GOD AAAAAAAH WHAT!? NO WAY NO WAY. NO. WAY!". I then looked around my empty bedroom mouth agape, mind aghast, desperate to share my outrage, with someone,anyone . It took me [...]

    18. I was not expecting this but I absolutely loved it! I would say even more so than the first story.Sure, Jo became completely screwed up after the event on the first novel and did come out as a whiny self-pitying woman but it just made her much more believable, more human. No one could have gone through what she did and not develop a bad case of PTSD.Also, the plot was clichéd and very predictable but that is always the case with superheroes stories, really.I have no yet read the prequel to this [...]

    19. Great book! Wish I could give it 6 stars since it was even better than the first one (which is 5 stars). wWile I know this is supposed to be a trilogy, I would be quite content for the series to end here for fear what the author might do in book 3. The change in Joanna's situation between books 1 and 2 was a bit of a shock at first and I don't think I could handle more upheaval for her in book 3 if that's what Harlow chooses to do. However, if Joanna keeps with the path she is on, then bring on [...]

    20. Dark, Gritty, at times depressing. This is not usually the type of book I enjoy. but I loved this second book in the trilogy. I'm a huge fan of Jennifer Harlow, I devoured Justice, with Galilee Rising, I simply couldn't wait to keep reading it. I like that Joanna Fallon displaces such raw human emotions following the events of the previous year. The action is jam-packed, the romance not overwhelming, and I love that "girls" kick-ass.

    21. I just started Galilee Rising and the 'White Knight' bit at the beginning of the book really annoyed me especially after we read on and see how damaged Joanna has become. I think it's obvious who the white knight is and that is just not cool. So I'm taking a break and I'll see if I come back to the book.

    22. In my opinion, it wasn't as good as the first book and there are two main reasons: first, the element of novelty was gone, and second, the scheme of how to capture Emperor Cain was too complicated and confusing. I did like it but I don't think that I am going to read final book.

    23. Fantastic! Up late into the night, got up earlier to read before work after sleeping only 4 hours, read through lunch, and finished as soon as I got home. Could not be any clearer that this book absolutely pulled me in. LOVED IT

    24. Good book! If you've read the first of the series definitely jump into this one and take the time to finish it! The twists aren't as out of left field as the original but this book provides a lot of fun for superhero fans.

    25. Good second book. Lots of secrets come to light. Joanna falls in love. Tragedy strikes again. Only thing I didn't care for is the bad words used by Jo everytime she opens her mouth. Wow to much. Can't wait for book three to come out.
