About the Book
With solidarity and vigor against the rulers of Eden, thirteen-thousand young revolutionaries staged an uprising the likes of which had never been seen in history. Calling themselves the “Causes,” they seek truth, change, and transparency from their government; a powerful council known as the Fifteen.
Two months in, the Revolution eases into a temporary stalemate. Dartmouth–known as “Brigg” among his fellow Causes–continues to enjoy carefree time to himself. Using the Revolution to distance himself from his personal hardships has been working out for him.
His time traveling solo is soon cut short when he crosses paths with an endearing girl named Mika, who has been seeking help in locating her missing father. Unsuccessful thus far, she confides in Dartmouth when he offers to help.
As the two of them become a team, a chain of events is sparked into motion. With their choice, the balance of the Revolution shifts, diplomacy shrivels to chaos, allegiances are shattered, and the course of Eden’s history is affected in ways far beyond what they could ever imagine.
Well this book is coming out at a perfect time! There are so many things in this story that can be related back to our current climate, which also makes the book that much more intense. But make sure that you plenty of time to read this, because you’re not going to want to put it down! There’s so much intensity and action that you’ll be wanting more and more.
This is a dark story that isn’t afraid to get deep and gritty. I mean, there’s a lot at stake, but I don’t want to say too much and give things away. But if you’re a fan of teenagers taking control and overthrowing a terrible dystopian-esque situation then you’re like this! And what I liked best about this book is that the characters aren’t your typical whiney ya type of teenager, they have a purpose and are willing to go to any length.
My only complain is more of just a personal preference. There wasn’t a lot of world building throughout the story, but instead it was used as a plot device to throw some epic curve balls at the end of the book. Now, I’m probably an anomaly in missing this aspect but that’s just because (as I’ve said many times) I grew up on Tolkien and love that aspect of long drivels of lore on the world. But anyways, this was still an amazing review and I cannot wait to see where this story leads!
