Analiese Rising
by Brenda Drake
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: January 8th 2019
Entangled Teen


When a stranger gives Analiese Jordan a list of names before he dies, the last thing she expects to see is her own on it. Not. Cool. Her search for answers leads to the man’s grandson, Marek, who has dangerous secrets of his own. Both are determined to unlock the mystery of the list.

But the truth is deadly. Analiese is a descendant of the God of Death, known as a Riser, with the power to raise the dead and control them. Finding out she has hidden powers? Cool. Finding out she turns corpses into killers? No, thank you.

Now the trail plants her and Marek in the middle of a war between gods who apparently want to raise an army of the Risen, and Analiese must figure out how to save the world—from herself.

Today I’m here to share my dream cast for ANALIESE RISING. I’m sure most of us wonder who would be the perfect actor for our favorite book characters should they make it into a movie. When sketching a character, I tend to search for actors and save pictures of them in a folder so that I can get a visual while writing the story. So, here’s a list of what I think would be the perfect cast.

Analiese Jordan: I think Merit Leighton who played Hannah in the series Alexa and Katie on Netflix and acted in A Tiger’s Tale when she was eleven fits. She’s a perfect match for Analiese.

Marek Conte: Okay, so Noah Centineo is totally Marek for me. Look at those eyes and broad shoulders—he’s irritable.

Dalton Bove: With those sandy locks and strong jawline, Doug Booth is definitely a good choice to play Dalton.

Shona Jackson: Madison Pettis with that curly hair and flawless makeup could play Shona well.

Cain Jones: Cain is extremely good-looking but seriously dangerous. Alex Pettyfer from Beastly would fit him great.

Sid aka Sidapa: He’s a god from Philippine mythology and a cross-dresser with attitude. With his height and god-like good looks, I think Xian Lim would be the best choice for Sid.

The story has many more fun god characters I’d like to build a dream cast, but then this post would get too long. I hope you enjoyed meeting the main characters for Analiese Rising!

About the Author
Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda's world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there's always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she's not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
