Today I’ve proudly teamed up with TLC Book Tours to highlight a great read! This is the third and final installation for The Initiation Series, entitled The Insurrection. Author Chris Babu gives a YA dystopian world that’s a fast paced read and very, very exciting!
They are protected by lies. He is armed with the truth.
Having survived the Initiation and expedition, one battle remains: the fight for the heart and soul of New America.
Drayden and his friends, enlisting the help of Professor Worth, must find a way back to New America before the Guardians imperil their return. But for these teens, their problems are only beginning. The Bureau, which never expected them to survive the expedition, will do everything in their power to prevent New America’s darkest secrets from getting out.
Drayden’s only hope is the insurrection led by ally Kim Craig. The David versus Goliath battle between good and evil, between truth and lies, will push Drayden to his breaking point and require bravery, self-acceptance, and above all, belief in himself. Backed by the will of the citizens, he’ll need to engineer an ingenious strategy to defeat the all-powerful authoritarians. The question is, will it be enough?
I really enjoyed this book! It was fast-paced and there wasn’t a time where something wasn’t happening! Utopia/Dystopia is one of my favorite genres in general, so I was definitely interested in picking this up.
Even though it’s part of a trilogy, I feel like you could pick it up and read it without being extremely lost. Drayden and his friends go through a lot, and it’s something I definitely am not sure if I could do it myself.
I think Chris Babu does an excellent job in writing the action sequences. It really did leave me wanting more. All in all, it was an excellent closure to the series! I gave it 4 stars.
