Rise Against: The Foundling Series

This is the 2nd to last in the series
This series starts with Bayou Born by Hailey Edwards. This is the series that I started reading and fell in love with Hailey Edwards story-telling. The characters, stories (While fantasy themed) are / relatable and yet sucks you into a whole new world that you get lost in and just speed read through everything.
This is a build up series. So, I do not feel like you can just willy nilly start in a book and know. It’s only five books so why would you do that to begin with?
Netgalley description of the story:
Welcome to the ferocious world of The Foundling, set in a bayou town where men are men – except when they are also dragons, kitties with wings, crocodiles and . . . well, Miller.
Apocalypse? It must be Tuesday
The four horsewomen of the apocalypse came to Earth – and only two survived. Now it’s time for the real battle to begin . . .
Luce has come, literally, through hell, and now she’s trying to pick up the pieces. Earth is getting ready for the war to end all wars: it’s angels vs demons and Luce is the only one who seems worried about humanity, hapless pawns who are stuck in the middle of the battlefield. Between building an army and running for her life, she’s got a lot on her plate – and that’s not to mention her beloved Cole.
As angels drop dead and violent forces begin to gather in the city, the final pieces of an ancient war fall into place, and it’s time for Luce and her loyal coterie to face an enemy like no other. In order to survive, they’ll need to team up with those they’ve considered enemies, and try to decide who, if anyone, they can trust. And Luce must decide how much she’s ready to risk in the name of peace – and whether she’d be prepared to sacrifice her very soul . . .
