Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always.
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.
Oh man. Ok. I wanna start this review out with this. Rebels is the final book in the Safe Lands series. Yes, the final book. So, if you have been reading these books already, this will be amazing for you. Unfortunately, I haven’t read any of the books.
So what does that mean for this review?
The book is really well written. I’ve never read her books so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The conversation is smart and the details are amazing. Jill Williamson immerses us into this world and these characters. With that said…..I couldn’t finish the book. Not because I wasn’t enjoying it but because I was lost. Completely lost. While I was able to figure out a little here and a little there, I really had no idea what was going on. Unfortunately, that is the bad thing about trying to review the last book in a series. I DO want to read the first two books, Captives and Outcasts. And then I will come back to Rebels and I know I am going to totally enjoy it.
THIS IS NOT A BAD REVIEW. It just means that the first books in the series are important!! Just wanted to make that clear.
