Wasn't as good as Oppression... ( )

I flat out adored the first book in this series so I was very happy to be able to review the second before its release! (Thanks, Jessica!) Anyhow, this book is rocking from the very start, with hardly a moment of down-time for the whole book. The war that has been brewing boils over and everyone is touched. I loved the breakneck pace and new characters we get to meet and old characters we get to understand a little better. The truth of all that is being perpetrated by The Council, as much as is revealed, had me reeling, and I think it becomes increasingly clear to Elyse and everyone that there is no choice in what they have to do. I'm having a hard time saying anything else without giving away spoilers, so I'll sum this up by stating that if you enjoyed the first book you'll love Uprising! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984035095, Paperback)

Jessica Therrien follows up her bestselling novel OPPRESSION with UPRISING, the second book in the Children of the Gods series. OPPRESSION, translated and sold around the world, was one of the best selling YA novels of 2012. UPRISING continues the story of Elyse, William and the Descendants. Elyse has been in hiding for most of her life. Only now she’s hiding with William, and she knows who she’s hiding from. The Council wants a child Elyse and William have yet to conceive, a child who will be the next oracle, and who will provide the final piece to a plan Christoph has been organizing for years. Charged with leading the rebellion against Christoph and his Council, Elyse feels well out of her depth. But she has good friends and strong allies who are willing to fight with her to the end, regardless of how far they have to go, and how many lives will be lost in the process. They have one goal: to live freely and openly with the rest of humanity, out from under The Council’s oppressive rule. The stakes could not be higher for Elyse and the Descendants longing for freedom. They'll have to learn to fight if they want to stand up against The Council, and to find allies in a world ruled by their enemies. The hardest part of waging a war is knowing who to trust. Elyse knows their uprising will change the world. She doesn’t realize it will change her, too.
