The Rise of Lucerne is the second book of the New World series, and the largest of the books so far. The Rise of Lucerne deals heavily with the growth of the Kingdom of Lucerne following the events of the Battle of Berne, and the effect this growth has on several of the characters in the Kingdom Of Lucerne.

The Rise of Lucerne is distinct in that it opens up the story to much of the outside world with significant chapters dealing with characters outside of the valley of Lucerne. The second largest chunk of the book from a POV point of view is a mixture of characters that have never entered the Valley of Lucerne or have any connection with the Kingdom Of Lucerne.

The Rise of Lucerne opens up into many different side stories of which Fires of Harrenhall, The Twilight, and Blood Lillies are the largest and the ones that open up the most areas of the plotline. The Twilight expands into the world of the Elves people with the POV Characters of many of the different Elven side groups featured throughout and explaining the motivations of these groups.

Many of the POV Characters are similar from the End of Darkness but on top of the members of that story come newcomers in the form of Karl Franz who takes the role of the Prologue and is the Emperor of the Imperium of Germania. Saiden Scarlet enters the POV role and details the increasingly powerful House Scarlet as well as the taking of Fairmarket, and the Riverlands. Lucie Lovie first starts off as a POV Character of the story during the Rise of Lucerne and she stands as the oldest child of William Lovie III. of whom she was born to Britney Hemsworth before she was sent away from Lucerne by his increasingly insane father.

The Rise of Lucerne deals with many conflicts including the Civil War in Alcase which is dealt with from the POV of Lesiana Orsinio. The Invasion of Westbridge is heavily the source of parts of the book and over the span of six chapters their are six characters that give a POV of the events of the Invasion of Westbridge.

The Rise of Lucerne begins with the aftermath of the Battle of Berne, and the dramatic end of the Lucernian Civil War which all but ended with the death of Sean Lovie. The expansion of the Kingdom of Lucerne into Westros begins following this as does the long foreshadowing of the eventual continent defining event in the form of the Invasion of Westbridge. The Invasion of Westbridge occurs and leads to Lucerne conquering basically all of Westros on the western side of the Rhine, and dramatically threatening many of the nations in the region and forcing both the Kingdom of Bolten, and The Empire into there own moves. The Rise of Lucerne ends with the dire conseuqences of the Bolten invasion of the Divine Lands which leads to a huge rise in the conflicts in Westros and the eventual Bolten-Lucerne War.
