The Lucent Rise. (n.) Title of the third book in The Trailokya Trilogy. The title hints at a rising, but whose?

Just as she is making connections to the world she longs to work and belong in, everything crumbles.
But, what must crumble often provides the necessary materials for building stronger than ever. Just because it seems that she is on her own, a symptom of her trauma, depression, and anxiety, doesn’t mean that she really is. Holly stands upon the crossroads.

Readers will have to unpack the clues as they go. Hints are everywhere. It may not be just one of our friends…
