Synopsis (from goodreads)
Recovering from a near-fatal gunshot wound, eighteen-year-old Evan Taylor must find a way to stop the Uprising, an underground movement committed to destroying the Union, before her homeland is attacked.
After spending the last four months in the Ruins trying to get back to the only girl he’s ever loved, nineteen-year-old Cyrus needs to get past his jealousy over Evan’s involvement with Bryce or risk losing her again.
Together, Evan and Cyrus join with their friends to devise a plan to save both the Ruins and the Union, but when the pressure’s on, bickering and infighting threaten to undermine their goals. New information revealing a weakness in the Uprising is uncovered, forcing them to act quickly or risk losing everything.
With the help of old friends and new allies they set out to make history, but it might just take a miracle for everyone to make it out alive.
THE UPRISING is the third book in THE UNION series, a young adult romantic adventure set in the near future.
Evan is hurt and she’s back in The Union with Cyrus, Bryce, Jack, Lisa, Colin, Rainey and Simon. The Uprising is still active and the team will try to find a way to stop them.
Evan and Cyrus are not in a good relation in the beginning of the book and I can’t say that Cyrus didn’t have good reason. He thinks that Evan betrays him with Bryce. He didn’t accept the fact that Evan is close to Bryce and he can’t see him every day without thinking bad things. They are fighting a lot in this book and sometimes it’s disturbing.
The book begins in The Union but they are going to The Ruins and finally came back in The Union. We are seeing Ruins characters and Union characters, I love Marcus, Allie and Sonia and they are very important for Cyrus so it’s totally logical that we are seeing them.
The Uprising is full of action, they are fighting and searching The Uprising alone or in little group. The characters feelings are well written, not only those of Cyrus and Evan but also Lisa, Jack and the others.
The author has done a good job with the story, I don’t remember a moment in the book that I didn’t like, even the one where Evan and Cyrus are angry gives me some feelings I like when I read a book; except maybe for the awful cliffhanger at the end, and the fact that I must wait for the next book.
If you have read the first two books, you must continue the series because this book brings more questions and some answers.
About The Author
When not visiting the imaginary worlds inside my head, I live in San Diego, California, with one husband, three children, two cats, and one dog. In addition to my day job as a technical writer and editor, I write young adult fiction. I love the intensity of teen emotions and the way they’re still figuring out life.
When I’m not writing, you can find me with my nose in a book, hanging out with family and friends, hiking, or knitting. I’m obsessed with Facebook, young adult novels, bad lip reading videos, pumpkin spice lattes, microbrewed beers, and the San Diego Chargers.
