Welcome to the blog tour for The Rise of the Raidin by Susan L. Markloff. Read on for more details and a chance to win a signed a signed copy of the book!

The Rise of Raidin
Publication Date: November 1st, 2021
Genre: YA Fantasy/ Urban Fantasy

Jennifer Monroe is an average eighteen-year-old girl, and she knows it.

Which is precisely why no one—least of all herself—would suspect anything extraordinary from the quiet, boring girl who only has a few good friends to call her own. But that all got flipped on its head about a year ago, when two imposing men, a complete goofball, a werewolf, and two large four-legged creatures barged into her life.

Now over a year later, Jen leads a double life. Mild mannered, quiet, high schooler by day; dragon slayer and raw-energy-wielding-warrior (in training) by night. Juggling SAT scores, papers, and mastering the art of flying, she’s managed to keep her friends and family oblivious of her hybrid abilities and continue on a track for college. Everything was going swimmingly.

Until one normal, foggy, November morning, when a dragon crashed through the clouds, heralding a small army to descend on her high school. All for little, forgettable her. Making her realize that maybe there’s a whole lot more going on than she originally thought.

My favorite genre is fantasy and I read a lot of YA so when the tour invite for The Rise of Raidin by Susan L. Markloff came through, I jumped at the chance. I’m glad I did! What a great read!!

Jen is am intriguing main character. She leads quite the double life and I think the differences in what she allows people to see in her personality depending on whether she’s at school or slaying dragons is really compelling. Quiet at school, snarky and quit witted when battling the dragons.

The world building is really cool in this book. The creatures and powers are unique and I found myself drawn into the story. There isn’t any info dumping, just wonderful world building which is what I like to see in a novel!

The writing is great and so are the character and the world. Overall, I enjoyed this quite a bit and would recommend to YA Fantasy readers.

Thank you to R&R Book Tours for the free review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
