"One word... WOW!"

Dawn Madison is a tough, butt-kicking stuntwoman that at her last gig nailed an overzealous actor right in the jewels. Oh...yeah, you do not want to mess with her. Now, she finds herself in another battle, but this one involves her missing father in the glittering forum of Hollywood.

Dawn is the product of a famous starlet, who died young and tragically. This left her to be raised by her father, a man that had a little too much of a craving for the bottle and little in the way of earning a living, but he did the best he could. Dawn grew up fast, and being a stuntwoman was perfect for her.

Low and behold, once she starts her search for her missing father, Dawn is pulled into the employment of a private investigating firm whose team of investigators makes the Adams Family seem normal. From a little person, a sultry Spanish woman, and the Voice (and what a carnally crafted Voice it is too). Dawn gets caught up in a web of unimaginable intrigue that will toss her normal life into paranormal pandemonium.

This tough talking, whip smart woman will have to trust her instincts and have the willpower to get through a maze of otherworldly dangers. Will she find her father? Can she spot the truth in the clutter that has become her life? Danger, sexy characters, and the unknown awaits you... Now open the book to experience Dawn's discoveries for yourselves...

Night Rising is by author Chris Marie Green. One word...WOW! If this book is any indication of this author's writing talent, then hail to the newest paranormal princess, may she live long and prosper.

Ms. Green from the start is like a siren enthralling this reader. On each and every page there seems to be more to learn and be thrilled by, without overwhelming one with too much information.

Ms. Green is a storyteller extraordinaire. With fluid grace, her voice conjures up one of the most novel premises this reviewer has ever read. With Vampire books filling the shelves to overflowing, Night Rising has the right balance of chemistry and exciting elements to make it a winning read. And, yes, Ms. Green also has a very sensuous way of making one squirm too.

Night Rising by Chris Marie Green is so good, you will find cooking, cleaning, love and life put on hold as you drink-down chapter after chapter... Do not walk. Run, to get this book. It comes with the highest of recommendations from this reviewer.

Welcome to Hollywood—after dark…

Stuntwoman Dawn Madison is a girl with a lot of attitude—and a lot of issues, mostly about living up to the legacy of her mother, a world famous movie star/sex symbol, whose death left Dawn to be raised by her dad Frank, nobody’s notion of single-father-of-the-year. Now that she’s all grown up, she and Frank aren’t on the best of terms, to say the least.

Still, he is her dad, and when he vanishes while investigating the bizarre sighting—caught on film—of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join the search for him. Working with his colleagues—a psychic short in stature but big in dreams of stardom, a beautiful Latina techno-geek, and the P. I. firm’s never-seen boss—she discovers an erotic and bloody underground society made up of creatures she thought existed only on the screen.

They are devious. They are deadly. And some of them are dangerously attractive…
