The Originals: the Rise is a book about a vampire family that includes Rebekah, Elijah, and Klaus who returned to their home in Boston from New Orleans. When one of the other vampires who is not an "original" decides to go out with a werewolf, a war begins begins because werewolves are the vampire's arch enemy. Then the werewolves become very angry. So it’s up to the "original" vampire family to stop the conflict between the vampires, witchs, and werewolves.
I give this book two stars because it’s slow paced and medium romance. If you like books with lots of detail, maybe this is a book for you. My favorite character was Klaus because of his rebellious personality. My favorite part was when Klaus meets the werewolf who was with the vampire because of its tension. Overall this book was pretty good, but it dragged on too long, to capture my attention.
