Read full description of the books:
'The Revolt' completes Danielle Tara Evans duology (I believe that is the right word!), that began with 'The Cleansing.' It's actually nice to have a series come in a pair, rather than threes. 'The Cleansing' ended in shock-dramatic fashion, so it was hard to see how a sequel could be resurrected from it, but Evans has found a clever way. (I rather suspect the two books were worked out thoroughly in advance of her beginning the first, since they follow on with coherency.)
John and Annie, the two main protagonists from the first book, had a son, and now he is grown up and in a privileged yet tightly restricted position in the new regime that has taken over America; a dictatorship under the auspices of a certain Julian. John comes to understand not only the true nature of the despotic regime, but also his own lineage.
The story then takes a different turn as he finds himself in Ireland, which is now a lawless, frightening land.
'The Revolt' is certainly more action-packed than 'The Cleansing', which had a slow-burn that eventually erupted in a fiery end. I liked that nothing was too easy for John. He had successes, some minor, some major, but they always came at a price. These bittersweet victories give the duology a level of realism lacking in much dystopian fiction and film at the moment, and makes for a more satisfying storytelling.
There were some nice moments of irony, like when technology we consider cutting-edge today is described as 'so 21st century' by these future inhabitants.
While John is certainly a brave and masculine hero, he is far from Neanderthal and cliched. I particularly enjoyed the inversion of the usual conventions, such as the scene where he and his girlfriend, Megan, are about to enjoy their first intimate night together. Of the two, he is the inexperienced, nervous virgin relying on the practical knowledge of his partner.
'The Revolt' rollicks towards an undeniably emotional climax, bringing Evan's dystopian narrative to an exciting and memorable conclusion. An excellent and intelligent addition to the dystopian fiction genre.
