Review: Rebels by Jill Williamson


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0310735777/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0310735777&linkCode=as2&tag=chrisbooksrev-20&linkId=UHM575QUXTPISCLI
About the book:
The remnant of Glenrock has been scattered. But they are not beaten.

The Safe Lands have long kept the true meaning of Liberation secret from their people. But after being sentenced to Liberation themselves, Mason and Omar soon discover the truth.

Levi watched his brothers’ public sentencing and tries to hold out hope they are still alive, He is forced to focus his attention elsewhere, however, when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and made the Safe Lands’ newest Queen. His only choice to save Jemma may be to take up Omar’s old role of undercover vigilante, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will Levi’s new role be enough?

Meanwhile, Jemma’s sister, Shaylinn, is ready to give birth to the “Safe Lands’” children … but not even Ciddah is sure they can be delivered safely in the midst of a rebellion. And Mason must face the fact Omar’s illness could be fatal.

If they can all unite their efforts, together they may be able to expose the Safe Lands’ lies to the people. But if they fail, they will all surely die.

My thoughts:

Rebels is the third and final book in the "Safe Lands" series and a great conclusion! I was surprised to find out what "liberation" was - it was not what I was expecting!

The book ends in a way that doesn't tell you how everything is going to turn out, so you can decide what's going to happen regarding certain things. I'm not really a fan of this type of ending because I like to know what will happen without having to guess. ;)

I loved the suspense and action in Rebels. There were a lot of moments when I was so engrossed in the story and eager to see what was going to happen next! I also loved the setting and characters -- it all felt so real!

Overall, Rebels was a great YA dystopian. I've loved this series and definitely recommend it to mature teens and adults that like this genre.
