Revolutionary
Krista McGee
Thomas Nelson

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.

I've been quite anxious to wrap up the Anomaly series - the books being a surprise hit for me- and while it took me a little while to get into Revolutionary, I did like it. Once it got going, I couldn't put the story down.

I do admit that at the beginning the first person/present tense writing did bother me. Again. this isn't my favorite style in general, but I was okay with it in the previous books in this series. It just felt a little clunky here, although it definitely improved as the story went on. Also, the whole love triangle/pretending to like each other to survive was a bit Hunger Games for me ;)

I will admit that this book made me really, really mad- one of the characters was such a villain I could have killed him a hundred times over. And *SPOILER* several people died* END OF SPOILER* so it was pretty sad. Still, there was heroism and a group of characters trying to work together to defeat evil- a favorite plot of mine even if it wasn't to the level I normally like.

Still, overall, this was a great ending to the series and sent my emotions on quite the roller coaster ride.

Rating: 8

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
