Review: Revolutionary by Krista McGee


Revolutionary by Krista McGee
Anomaly Trilogy: Book Three
Thomas Nelson / 2014

About the book:
All her life Thalli thought she was an anomaly. Now she must use her gifts to fulfill the role she was called to play: Revolutionary.

Back in the underground State against her will, Thalli is no longer the anomaly she was before. She has proven herself to be a powerful leader aboveground and returns with information that Dr. Loudin needs to complete his plan of uniting the world under one leader: himself. But he, too, has information. A secret he has kept from Thalli her entire life. A secret that, once revealed, changes everything about the person Thalli thought she was.

Hoping to help Thalli rise up against the Scientists, both Berk and Alex join her underground, but their presence only brings more trouble for her. Now Dr. Loudin knows just the leverage to use on his captive, and she is forced to choose between the two of them. Is her first love her true love? Or does Alex ultimately claim her heart?

Unsure of everything around her, including her own identity, Thalli doesn’t know where to turn. She knows she needs the Designer, but he seems further away than ever. What she does know, though, is that if she doesn’t do something to stop Loudin, the fragile world aboveground will be lost once and for all.

My thoughts:



Now that I've finished Revolutionary, book three in the "Anomaly" trilogy, I can say that I've loved the entire series and Revolutionary was such a great conclusion! I've read some dystopian trilogies where the last book was kind of disappointing and my least favorite of the series - not so with this one...in fact, Revolutionary is my favorite!

I absolutely loved how the story grabbed my attention right away and didn't let go until the end (and even then I wanted to read more!). I had the hardest time putting it aside, even when I knew I should have been reading other books instead.

One thing I really liked was how some of the things that happened in Anomaly and Luminary were mentioned in this story; so, if it's been awhile since you read the previous books (or if you haven't read them), you'll have a little refresher and not be racking your brain trying to remember certain things that happened earlier.

Revolutionary had so many surprises! There were several times my jaw literally dropped from shock and other times that I started to cry because of something that happened. I just loved the entire book, but I don't want to go into details to avoid spoilers. So, I'll end by saying that Revolutionary exceeded my expectations and I absolutely loved it! I'm a little sad to be saying goodbye to these characters, but it was a satisfying ending. :)

I look forward to reading more of Krista McGee's novels and definitely recommend Revolutionary (and the rest of the "Anomaly" trilogy) to fans of dystopian and YA novels. It was so good!!

  1. I can't wait to get up on this series! Sounds soooo good! I know my Grandma loved the first one! She actually got mad at me when book two wasn't out yet when she finished book one! Haha!

  2. I loved Anomaly so much, and I can't wait to read the last two books, though it's always hard to say goodbye!
