    1. I tried to not judge the son by the sins of the crazy mother. This book is not getting it though. I have another one of his to read so I'll try again. See I can be nice!This one is so frigging boring that well.rvy kitty on my status update showed what I would rather be doing.

    2. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/The Heavens Rise might just be the scariest thing to come out of the swamp since"Magic withheld gives birth to nightmares, and so I have no choice but to stand back, open my heart and let the heavens rise."Have you read the synopsis yet? You haven’t? Good. DON’T! This book could have possibly been 4 Stars if the f-ing blurb didn’t spoil the whole damn story for me. The big reveal/“dun dun dunnnnnnnn” moment doesn’t happen until the 61% mark. W [...]

    3. You remember when you were young and movies really scared you; and then 20 years on you go back and watch the same movie and cannot believe that it ever had any effect on you at all? Well that is how I felt after reading The Heavens Rise by Christopher Rice. I came into the book thinking it would be at least spooky if not slightly shocking; and maybe that was my mistake as a reader. Overall it was a pleasant story that struck me more of a Stephen King novel that has been watered down with an eve [...]

    4. Dear Christopher Rice,I have a confession to make. I've never read any of your books until now. I'm ashamed to admit that I prejudged you, assuming you were riding your mother's coattails to literary success. Thank you for proving me wrong with THE HEAVENS RISE. What a powerful novel! And what an amazing and inspired contribution to the horror genre. Your detailed and emotionally-gripping narrative did what all good books do--made me think, touched my heart, and best of all, kept me counting dow [...]

    5. The Heavens Rise is the first novel I've read by Christopher Rice and hopefully will not be the last. Rice takes us on a journey through the murky, black, swamp water in Louisiana where there is more than meets the eye, is lying in wait. Three friends are up against an evil the world has never seen before who's only goal is revenge.The Heavens Rise is an engrossingly atomospheric, poetically written, supernatural novel with elements of horror that will scare the pants off some readers. The novel [...]

    6. It isn’t the big things that frighten me the most. Oh, they are frightening: the storms, the fires and floods and hurricanes like Katrina. Their devastation is horrific, tremendous, outside the realm of reality in their own way.But those things can be shared, in all their pain and anger. What frightens me are the small things, the unseen things. The man who touches his three-year-old daughter, behind walls and in secret. The woman down the street, whose empty eyes have long given up hope for r [...]

    7. I knew I was going out on a limb with Christopher Rice's The Heavens Rise, but I can't help feeling annoyed that it proved such a disappointment. Having read the blurb I expected darker subject matter, but the vulgarity of the Rice's language paired with the his dependence on trite stereotypes grated my nerves. I would have been able to handle ominous, but the fact that I found much of the material offensive depleted my patience and made it intensely difficult for me to care about the narrative. [...]

    8. It seems that Christopher Rice attempts to reinvent himself with every new book he writes. A Density of Souls and The Snow Garden were stylistically and thematically similar (both read like deliciously melodramatic soap operas), but ever since then he has experimented with different genres: the noir thriller (Light Before Day); the military thriller (Blind Fall); and the international spy thriller (The Moonlit Earth). The Heavens Rise adds yet another genre to Rice's catalog: the supernatural th [...]

    9. Well, that was interesting. And, sad. And, entertaining. And, FREAKY!The Heavens Rise is my first Christopher Rice novel. Going in, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but, in most ways, the author has exceeded my expectations. THR is equal parts crime drama, thriller, romance, paranormal and more. You can read the synopsis on or but it doesn't really do the book justice. What I really liked: - Character Development - the reader gets to know Niquette, Anthem, Ben, Marissa and Marshall. In some [...]

    10. Where I got the book: e-ARC from NetGalley.I went through a major Anne Rice phase at one point a few years ago and then grew out of her. When I saw that her son Christopher's latest was available at NetGalley I was curious, and in the mood for some horror/thriller. The plot, or at least a bit of it; Anthem, Marshall and Niquette were high school friends but ten years later Niquette is missing, presumed dead, with the rest of her family, Marshall is a coma patient and Anthem has developed a drink [...]

    11. Hmmm I don't exactly know how I want to start this. I have this book sitting in my kindle right now at 92%. That's not far from being completely finished and yet yet I don't want to spend anymore of my precious time on it. I usually give a basic rundown of what a book is about when I do my reviews and then head it up by saying whether or not I liked the writing style, plot, characters, etc. I'm not going to summarize this time I like reading supernatural reads, that is why I was drawn to this bo [...]

    12. To be published on October 15 2013This is the first ARC I read, since I registered on Netgalley yesterday. Ok up to me now. First, I'd say the book is way to slow. I spend half the book waiting for the story to kick-off, and at this point I was just wishing for the book to be over. And yet I went on, mainly for my book of the day challenge, the review purpose and a little curiosity remaining: I read half of it, now I want to know why.I felt the premise of the book, if not a little misleading (bu [...]

    13. You can read more of my book reviews over at the rabid bookworm.I want to say first off that I didn’t finish this book – I tried really hard to but just couldn’t force myself past the 70% mark. I loved the setting, New Orleans both pre and post Katrina were really brought to life by the author but the time jumps between 2005 and 2013 were really quite jarring for me because if you finished reading half way through a chapter you struggled to figure out what time period you were in when you [...]

    14. Christopher Rice has written a creepy novel of the supernatural but it's more than that. The author has devised a post-Katrina love song for New Orleans. His novel teems with Southern atmosphere and the characters are steeped in the New Orleans tradition. I may be off here, but this story about four teenagers who are changed by a mysterious and tragic event reads like an allegory to New Orleans before and after Hurricane Katrina. We have four main characters who are destroyed by a strange occurr [...]

    15. Incredibly boring. I've been trying to read this since October. Could not get into it at all.DNF at 50%

    16. I was extremely excited when I happen to come across the book while out shopping for, yes more books, as I had read a book by this author a while ago and remember enjoying it quite a lot. Now although aside from that the synopsis was very intriguing and I thought I would give it a go. The beginning was great and was pacing itself quite nicely and I began to get my hopes up that I had lucked out found another great book, but towards the middle I was beginning to lose interest. Which kind of pisse [...]

    17. Thanks to the author, publisher and netgalley for the review copy and for the disturbed sleep….New York Times bestselling author Christopher Rice brilliantly conjures the shadowed terrors of the Louisiana bayou—where three friends confront a deadly, ancient evil rising to the surface—in this intense and atmospheric new supernatural thriller. Out October 15th.Intense and atmospheric. Right. Spot on description. Hey, me, I don’t get creeped out by novels often, a good horror or ghost film [...]

    18. A bit of a confession here. I had no idea Christopher Rice was the son of Anne Rice. In fact I was almost finished with the book when my wife ask me about it. This was my first book by Rice and I found more horror elements in it than I anticipated. Now it's not a slash and gore book but it did have some horrific moments. Set in the Louisiana bayou the story alternates between present day and eight years prior. The well-to-do Delongpre family is about to host a party celebrating their move into t [...]

    19. Marshall Ferriot has his eyes set on Niquette (Nikki) Delogpre, but her boyfriend Anthem Landry stands in his way. After engineering their breakup, Marshall and Nikki are exposed to a strange organism which will change their lives forever. When Nikki and her family disappear, and Marshall Ferriot ends up in a vegetative state and later also disappears, Nikki's friend Ben Broyard teams up with journalist Marissa Hopewell to investigate their disappearance. This search will last eight years. When [...]

    20. This is the complete review as it appears on my blog.This novel ought to be re-titled "Snakes in a Swamp", because there are, and lots of them. But despite that, something bad is happening in the swamps of Louisiana. That's all I got out of this novel in the first fifty pages. Reading it is like taking a switch-back ride and having your back switched with one belonging to the guy who previously took this same ride and had his back switched out, and not in a good way.I read one third of the novel [...]

    21. So Yep. Not the best way to begin a review, perhaps, but I am not certain what to say about this book. I think if you are the type of person (like me) who enjoys thrills and chills at a more psychological level than a physical, action-based one, that this book will keep you happily occupied. Christopher Rice did a beautiful job of creating characters that have depth and make you want to learn more about them with this novel. I was impressed mostly by his ability to make the bad guy more than jus [...]

    22. Via onlectus/2013/11/Hadn't I loved the beginning of the story, I would have given it 2 stars. I feel this book was written by two people. The beginning was one thing and the end was another. I could barely put the book down at the beginning, and then mysterious force entered the second half and the story became blah; especially the supernatural part of it.Let me start with the character of Marissa; two complete different people at the beginning of the book and the end. I was liking Marissa so m [...]

    23. While Niquette "Nikki" Delongpre is going about her life in much the same manner as other teenagers--dealing with the ups and downs of adolescence, spending time with her best friend, and chatting with the new boy on campus--she is unaware of evil forces creeping up on her, surrounding her friends and family, and gearing up to unleash fury from the most unlikely of sources. With her loyal friends as constant companions, what harm could befall this young girl? She has always lived in New Orleans, [...]

    24. I was debating for a while if I thought this book should get a 4 or a 5. I ended up just giving it a 5 since, for me, it's on the higher end of a 4.5.Really, the only reason I wouldn't give it a solid 5 is because there were quite a few grammatical errors throughout the entire book. However, they didn't bother me that much so it wasn't too big of a deal.Other than that, I really enjoyed "The Heavens Rise." It was extremely enjoyable to read; full of suspense and it always kept me guessing. I fou [...]

    25. I’ve been waiting for this kind of book from Christopher for a while, something in the fantasy genre, but subtle and literary. As well, literary fiction readers will enjoy this because it’s not so “genre” that it will put them off but is definitely “genre” enough that genre fans will snap it up.It’s hard to describe why this book is so good, but it’s an absorbing read with memorable characters. The lines are blurred between who is good and evil. There are shades of gray. There al [...]

    26. This isn't even out yet and I feel disappointed in it. First because it sounds like its from a females pov. (If she's lesbian I'll forgive this) and this only disappoints me because there are already so many heterosexual characters out, I dislike seeing an Lgbtq switch over. I get authors can write what they want to write, it is just personally disappointing to me. Second the name of the girl in the blurb really annoys me already. I can't imagine having to read that over and over again in the ac [...]

    27. Ugh. Really, 1.5 stars, but I'm showing one star due to some personally distasteful elements. And the plot. And the way the book started off strong and then just imploded.

    28. As soon as I saw that Christopher Rice (yes, he is the son of Anne Rice) had a new book coming out this year, I knew I would read it. I have read all but one of his other books (I just happened to miss its publication, and have not had time to request it from the library). Even better, Rice ran a promotion where if you preordered the book and sent a receipt to his publisher, he would send a signed manuscript page. I went ahead and ordered, but was even more excited to be granted access to a Gall [...]

    29. New Orleans may be the best setting for a horror novel ever invented. Cypress trees and the dark water of interminable swamps are a spooky background for Christopher Rice’s story about rape, snakes and mind control in The Heavens Rise, one of the nominees for this year’s Bram Stoker Award for best novel.Niquette Delongpre — Nikki — is a gorgeous teenage girl, the toast of her high school. She and Anthem Landry have been an item for three years before Marshall Ferriot figures out a way to [...]
