Book Description

Love in the time of superheroes...

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” -Confucius

The year since Galilee Falls lost its reigning superhero Justice has not been kind to Joanna Fallon. She's lost her best friend, her boyfriend, her badge, even her mind. The city of Galilee Falls hasn't fared much better with supervillain related crime skyrocketing to cataclysmic proportions. Deliverance for the city arrives in the guise of The Royal Triumvirate--King Tempest, Lady Liberty, and Lord Nightingale--who vow to be the heroes the city needs. Salvation for Joanna appears in the brilliant form of Dr. Jem Ambrose, another lost soul in need of saving. But salvation comes with a high price. When Emperor Cain, an old nemesis of The Triumvirate, decides he will stop at nothing to make sure there is no city left to defend, it is up to Joanna to rise not only for her city, for her new love, but for herself as well…

5.0 out of 5 stars Joanna Fallon evolves into a character I enjoy reading 11 Jan. 2014
By Valerie B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story picks up whereas Justice is gone and Joanna Fallon has fallen apart. Alcoholic, no longer a detective, no longer in a relationship due to her own questionable liaison(s) with other men. Rich beyond belief, but one of the most unhappy women in Galilee Falls, no purpose to it, cynicism driving her view on life. So, sounds depressing, no?
It's not. Along come three supes new to Galilee. And Joanna has the computer, the money, and police resources to assist them in their quest to negate criminals from Galilee Falls. They need her. And I as a reader quickly realize she needs them.
Good snappy, and at times the snarky, dialogue I have come to expect from Ms. Harlow. And a surprising inclusion of the protagonist from the last story.....ah I think there is another ending coming up for that acid man. Not a good one.
Well written. I am a huge fan of Jennifer Harlow Galilee series. I think you will be to. More than urban fantasy. Enjoyable, fast paced and absorbing. You should read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ain't Nothing Falling Here 20 Dec. 2013
By Will Myers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So, this is what Jennifer Harlow serves up for the second helping of Galilee Falls Pie. And it's really good.

Joanna Fallon returns, one year after the events in Justice. She has inherited Justin's house, butler Dobbs, and the Justice Cave, complete with Justice Computer. She may not be a super hero herself, but using the Justice Computer, she does what she does best: help the people of Galilee Falls. But this time, she has help in the form of the Royal Triumvirate; King Tempest, Lady Liberty, and Lord Nightingale. It doesn't take her long to figure out who they are. Things go from bad to worse when Emperor Cain arrives to make the Triumvirate's life, as well as Joanna's, a living Hell.

I really, really like this book. It's a great follow up to Justice. Joanna is back and is just as big a bitch as ever. I thought Ms. Harlow did a great job in writing this book, as I stayed up late three nights in a row to finish the whole thing. The characters are big, bold, and easy to like. Or hate, in Cain's case. Additionally, some of the supporting cast from Justice make their returns. Harry, Cam (in a brief appearance), and even Alkaline, in a Hannibal Lecter type role to Joanna's Clarice Starling. The pace rarely lets up in this book, which I think helped drive me to want to read more of it.

The one thing I didn't care for as much in this book is that Joanna's personal life seems to take much more of a center stage than it did in the first. It felt like that was a much bigger part of the story than it needed to be. I don't think it was *bad* necessarily, but much more up front.

Oh, and I found a typo. "gage" for "gauge." Meh.

Once again, Jennifer Harlow produces a great book. Pick up Justice, if you haven't already (come on, it's $3.99), read that, read this, love them both, and then wait for the third book. Just like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talk Supe Review 12 Dec. 2013
By Braine @ Talk Supe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
GALILEE RISING is the heart stopping second book in Jennifer Harlow's Galilee Falls Trilogy. Let me get this out of the way before I proceed. Ms. Harlow, please don't end the series yet! These superheroes are the gifts that keeps on giving and I hope you'll consider extending the expiration date of this brilliant series of yours. I don't know how you're going to do it, overdose on your magic juju juice, talk with the leprechauns in your backyard, have your Muses serenade you, I really don't care what you do it as long as you write more superhero books! I'll offer a blood sacrifice on your behalf if you say YES!

I found it so interesting that Joanna's greatest ally in GALILEE RISING is her greatest nemesis. That is just genius on JHarlow's part that put quite an interesting twist on things. Which makes me wonder if book 3 will revisit some parts of Justice of it it's going to be a whole new plot. And as we're a book away from the ending, I really don't know how JHarlow is going to conclude this story. It feels like there's so much more to tell and I don't think three books will be enough to cover so much ground. However, JHarlow never fails to surprise me so I'm sure that I'll both be wailing and laughing when book 3 comes out. As for now, stay safe and healthy guys, keep yourselves warm and curl up with a superhero book for a change. Joanna Fallon and her league of superheroes will provide you with much entertainment and joy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark superhero book, like reading a comic in book form 12 Dec. 2013
By Kate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
*Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy*

2013 will go down as the year that I discovered Jennifer Harlow. I have devoured everything she’s written so far – three F.R.E.A.K.S. books, the Midnight Magic book, and both books published so far in the Galilee Falls trilogy. This is to say, I may be a bit of a fangirl. However, I do think it’s deserved. With GALILEE RISING, Harlow steps up the game a bit. Whereas her other books are a bit more lighthearted, the Galilee Falls trilogy has a darker, more sinister bent, a more damaged heroine, and no vampires, witches, or werewolves in sight.

Jo Fallon, the main character of the Galilee Falls trilogy is one of those characters that is frustrating but that you can’t help loving anyway. She’s got a lot of issues – some stemming from her childhood, losing her father early in life and growing up with an alcoholic mother – and also some from as recently as the events in JUSTICE, when she finds out her best friend was lying to her for years. But she’s also a strong, resilient, and loyal woman, and that helps balance out the times when she runs from something and you’re thinking “JOANNA just give it a chance!” Her romantic life is particularly emotional, because as a reader, I just wanted her to be happy, and it is so hard for her to have that happy romantic ending, with all of the barriers she puts up between herself and other people.

The Galilee Falls trilogy reads a little bit like a written version of a comic book. Obviously, there’s superheros, but there’s also underground lairs with crazy technology, double identities, lots of explosions and even faked deaths. There’s a lot of other tropes too, like the “meeting with the previous supervillain to try to figure out the motives of the current supervillain.” Sometimes, plot points come off as rather obvious, for example, in both books I spotted the civilian identities of the superheros within pages of them appearing, but Harlow still manages to pull off a thrilling mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat.

If you’re one of those people who loves the more recent, darker Batman films, I would definitely suggest you pick up both books in the Galilee Falls trilogy. And while it is possible to read GALILEE RISING on its own, as a reader, a lot of it will be much more fleshed out if you read JUSTICE first. I know that I definitely can’t wait until the third and final book in the trilogy comes out, as I’m rooting for Jo’s happy ending, and can’t wait to see what superheros we’ll encounter next.
4.0 out of 5 stars ... so much has changed since the ending of JUSTICE 9 Dec. 2013
By Urban Fantasy Investigations - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was shocked when I started reading GALILEE FALLS, so much has changed since the ending of JUSTICE and the start of book 2 it takes a minute to catch up with time. And don't think that the twists and turns are over with Justices 'death' because they just get more complex. The synopsis above does a pretty good job explaining the book so I wont bore you with my take on events.

Joanna is more determined than ever not to be shoved in a protected corner. When The Royal Triumvirate show up in her cave she lets them know they are stuck with her. I was a little surprised that Joanna was attracted to Jem. I mean he sounds cute but he is super shy and it didn't seem like she went for the shy nerdy type. They are pretty cute together though so it was fun watching him stutter in her presence. If you have read any of Jennifer Harlow's other books you know she does a great job conveying and bringing out emotions to her readers. This series is no different. I found my self tearing up and laughing with the characters. There are plenty of devastating events so have the tissues on hand if you are an emotional reader. I really enjoyed the new characters that GALILEE FALLS introduced and I am excited to see where they all go next.

I was really happy with the events that took place in GALILEE FALLS and the outcome of those events but I can't help but think of the s*** that will hit the fan when Joanna finds out that she is still being lied to when it comes to Justice. How much lying can one girl really take? I guess we will find out in book 3 ... Hopefully...
