When vampires are at war . . .

No one is safe.

Charlotte 'Charlie' Houser discovers how vulnerable she is when she searches for her aunt. Drawn into a shadowy world she didn't know existed, is it really surprising to learn her entire life has been a lie? Heck, it's just another "untruth" to add to the list. Right up there with vampires. Because, yeah, they do exist.

As the key pawn in the raging war for America's Heart, Charlotte's only chance at survival is picking the right ally. But once allegiances are made, the side she chooses may be the one who wants her dead the most.

Review quote

5 stars: "I'm so glad Risen raised vampires from the dead. I love vampires and it never gets old so long as it's written well, and Cole Gibsen delivers." --Sasha Hibbs, author of Black Amaranth

5 stars: "This was a complete surprise. As much as I tend to love vampire novels, they usually get repetitive after a while. Risen defied my expectations and kept me on my toes." --Alice, The Alley-Cat7

5 stars: "Risen is a fresh addition to the world of vampire fiction. With its unique plot and captivating characters I was hooked from the first paragraph." --Jess Wright, Goodreads Reviewer

5 stars: "I strongly recommend this book because it's a fun read and a unique-ish twist on vampire/supernatural books that we see today." --Tashy, Goodreads Reviewer

4.5 stars: "From the first pages, I was totally hooked by the story. The writing is really smooth, pleasant and the action starts already in the first chapter." --Elodie, Further West

5 stars: "This well developed storyline has it all from three vampire clans that have different gifts to action and just the right amount of romance and I love the characters." --Laura, YA/NA Book Divas

5 stars: "I have never read anything from this author before. Risen was a well written story that kept you interested." --Kathy Dinisi, author of A Vacation From Hell

4.5 stars: "Charlie is spunky, defiant, and sarcastic. I liked her immediately. She's also pretty fierce at times." --Kristi, Confessions of a YA Reader

5 stars: "I love Charlie as a character. she's so strong and she always follows her heart even when it leads her to dangerous situations. She makes me want to be kidnapped by vampires but only if it's Sebastian or Edward." --Tiffany, Tiffany's Book Reviews & Blog

5 stars: "I didn't know I needed a new Vampire obsession in my life, but Risen has fuelled that fire and jeeze did I love it! Ignore the tagline saying it's like Vampire Diaries and Twilight; it's so much better than those books!" --Gem, @gemlovesbooks

5 stars: "I don't know where to start with this book. Every aspect is outstanding! A true work of art." --GG Reads

5 stars: "This was definitely a "one more chapter" read for me as I found myself half way through the book on the first night and finishing it the next day." --Erica Toole, Netgalley Reviewer

"Romance, action, wit, and fangs abound in this fast-paced paranormal fiction that will delight vampire fans..." - SLJ
