Revolutionary Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

Revolutionary (Anomaly #3)
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.

Author Bio:

I know I've mentioned this in my reviews of the previous two novels, but I love this series for the unique quality it has: Christian dystopian. Throughout the book, Thalli struggle to find the Designer that she has come to trust. Her faith starts to waiver as she feels abondoned. But there are people in her life that show her exactly what she needs to know to put her trust back in God.

The symbolism in parts of this story is beautiful. The story of Noah is a particularly strong theme woven throughout the novel. Loudin purged the earth of people, save for a small sect in the State, just as God wiped the earth clean except for Noah and his family, wight souls in all. Stuff like that is woven into the story and it makes it quite awesome.

Readers will be happy to know that there is a definite end to the love triangle. I am a fan of love triangles with definite ends. I don't like it when the girl just chooses one or the other. I prefer when something irrevocable happens and there's no possible way for the girl to be with one of the guys. Like in the Hunger Games, Katniss will always harbor the feeling that Gale is directly responsible for Prim's death.

I'm sad to see this series go, especially since the ending was bittersweet. I hope you enjoy the trilogy as much as I have.
