Rise
The Order of Krigers #1
Jennifer Anne Davis
Publication Date: May 17, 2016
Genre: YA Fantasy
The people of Nelebek live in fear of persecution from the evil Morlet, who reigns with a dark and destructive magic. The kingdom’s only hope lies with the Order of the Krigers—twelve warriors with mysterious powers linked to magical weapons.

For over a century, Morlet has been annihilating the Order, picking them off one by one. Eleven Krigers have been hunted down, tortured, and imprisoned in his dungeon. Now, only one remains.

Sixteen-year-old Kaia survives by keeping her head down and minding her own business. But when she finds herself in the middle of a public execution where the mysterious Morlet is in attendance, an odd compulsion she can’t resist comes over her.

Kaia looks into Morlet’s eyes.

Soon, an ancient power awakens and Kaia can no more blend into the scenery. Will she heed the call of the Krigers or will Morlet’s dark magic destroy the last of the Order?
The premise is familiar but I am sucker for this kind of stories. Fantasy, another world, girl with an extraordinary destiny, etcetera, etcetera. It does remind me a bit of Eragon: Order of Krigers=Dragonriders, Morlet=Galbatorix...

Don't you think the girl on the cover looks a bit like Leighton Meester?
