From the ashes, a predator rises.

After stumbling into the supernatural world with her angel-hybrid bestie, Ella Thomas is doing just fine, thank you very much.

As the only human in her new social circle, Ella refuses to let the weirdness of living with angels, demons, and witches affect her. Not only did she conquer her master’s degree, but the fall term makes teachers’ college a reality, bringing her one step closer to her dream job.

If only her love life was shaping up as smoothly. Lately, every first date has been a dud, every guy Mr. Wrong, and she knows precisely who to blame…

A six-foot-seven hunk of chaos demon who disappeared months ago without a word. Try as she might, Ella can’t get snarky, seductive Malachi out of her head—and it’s driving her freakin’ nuts.

Lurking in shadows, he stalks his prey.

Sensing an opportunity to seize a valuable hell-gate, Malachi Saevitia descends into the pit, butchering and bribing and schmoozing until his name is on the deed to Farrow’s Hollow. No more useless demon mobs wasting a city primed for damnation. No more thuggish brutes making life difficult for his little brother. Under Malachi’s control, the darkness can—and will—flourish.

Before he can choose his faithful lieutenants, however, a summons sent by the Farrow’s Hollow angel garrison reaches him in Hell. Curious, Malachi goes topside, eager to see what the winged bastards want.

Only to once again find himself face-to-face with Ella Thomas. Breathtaking, mouthy, bold, she is the one and only human Malachi cannot seem to forget—a human who makes him fight his instincts and play the hero.

And for a chaos demon, there is no greater sin.

After the raid on Seraphim Securities, a power vacuum splinters the Farrow’s Hollow demon community, and from the pit, a monster stakes his claim—on the city, on the humans within it…

And most of all, on her.

The Uprising is a full-length companion novel to The Hunt, a demon paranormal romance serial. It is a direct follow-up to the four books and cannot be read as a standalone.


Uhm, wow! I read The Hunt and The Uprising back to back, and I was completely hooked to the story and characters from the very beginning. With that being said, you should definitely read The Hunt prior to this one, it’ll definitely make your reading experience a whole lot better! And well this book isn’t a standalone.

We have Ella and Malachi’s story! And since I devoured The Hunt , I was rather eager to see what was to come to this rather interesting pair. I don’t even know where to start or what to say because it’s nearly impossible without spoiling the story at all. Liz just did a phenomenal job of creating this world with sooo many great characters to just be obsessed with.

They are seriously just a hot couple! Everything between them is electric and magnetic. It’s nearly impossible for them to stay away from one another. In The Hunt, I wasn’t completely on board with Malachi, he was rather immature in a lot of things, so I was eager to see some growth from him especially with the strained relationship he had with his brother, Severus. He’s definitely come a long way from then and I grew to love him by the end of this book.

Everything about Ella is fierce especially with the sisterly bond she has with Moira. There’s absolutely nothing that could separate those two. Their relationship was definitely one of my favorites (even though I have many) in this book. There’s just something unbreakable between these two and there’s so much love.

Like I mentioned earlier, Malachi won me over completely in The Uprising. Ella definitely got under his skin and there wasn’t a damn thing he wouldn’t do for Ella. He was at her beck and call, and he wasn’t going to let anyone or anything lay a finger on her. I love his alpha-ness and just every darn thing about him. Gahhhh, I love this guy … but not as much as Severus 😉

Sooooo yeah, get your hands on this one, highly recommend!

major thank you to the author for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.

About Liz Meldon

Liz is a Canadian author who grew up in the Middle East. She has a degree in Bioarchaeology from Western University, and when she isn’t writing about her own snarky characters, she is reading about other people’s snarky characters, babying her herb garden, loitering on social media, or taking care of her furbabies.

Liz dabbles in both paranormal and contemporary erotic romance. Her paranormals are usually dark and angsty, and her contemporaries are stress-free smutfests, but you’ll find both riddled with feels. Most of all, she loves writing realistic characters in fantastical settings.
