Overview

Twell's life is complicated. Her world has been attacked for precious water resources, and loved ones have died. Thrown into the Army Of Powers, Twell is forced to continue training her telekinetic gifts for the looming war.

As if that wasn't stressful enough, she's in love with a boy who was not chosen for her, and her genetic match believes in obeying the Governing Body's laws, and fighting for Twell, whether she likes it or not.

When Twell begins to question her rights, she manages to invoke a rebellion against the Governing Body she never could have imagined. Twell finds herself in more danger than ever, both from the enemy planet who want to destroy her world, and her own people, who will punish her for fighting for love and free will.

To save the ones she loves, Twell must choose what's worth fighting for, despite the consequences.

Twell and the Rebellion starts from where book 1 left off - thank goodness!!! I had guessed who her genetic match was with the description of the silver eyes, but I did enjoy the feeling of knowing that I had guessed correctly. The action is pretty much non-stop in this book as Twell's training ups a gear and she meets others with the same powers as her. Unfortunately, because they're training in power groups, it means that she doesn't see as much of Jonaz, or the others. Add Avin into the mix and it's not surprising that Twell feels confused, and easy pickings for Shanna. Now, I need to say something that might not go down too well, but I didn't like Shanna as a character. I started off with the same feelings for Mira, but she grew on me (like fungus!), until I loved every scene with her in it because of her acerbic tone. Shanna though... nah, she doesn't do it for me. I will also say that I really, REALLY, dislike love triangles. And yet you will notice that I gave this book 5-stars. Simply put, it is because there is no 'nonsense' in this book. Everything that Twell feels and goes through, I could understand perfectly how she felt. She wasn't just being indecisive for the fun of it, which seems to happen all too often. This book is absolutely chock-full of character development, with new characters to behold too. I don't think there were any editing or grammatical errors in it, but I was too engrossed to notice if there were! With a gripping story, cliffhanger ending, full of emotions, and smoothly paced - what more could you ask for? Highly recommended by me. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Wow, I just couldn't put this book down. At the end of the first book, I took a guess as to who the Governing Body matched Twell to, and at the start of this book, I found out I was right. And after reading this book, I am so conflicted as to who she should end up with. I feel loyal to the one she is in love with, but I can also see her being happy with her genetic match. In this book, we see Twell struggling with what is right and wrong, her loyalty--to her planet's people, the Governing Body, and those she cares for--and her trust in the Governing Body. I am looking forward to reading book three to see what happens, not only to Twell but to Shay, Jonaz, Avin, and all the other young Comians. The book has action, young love, conflict, and a slight cliffhanger. What more is there to want in a Young Adult book?

This is the second in the series and it keeps getting better with every book. This one we have the characters from book one and some new ones. All of them are developed well. This one is all about the action, with a good dose of drama, and of course a love triangle so intense you can't decide which way you want it to go. You want to side with Jonaz and then you want to side with Avin. Both of them are such strong characters. Twell's character has developed perfectly and I liked how you see everything that she has to go through. It helps understand her character even more. Now this book is a major cliffhanger so now I am hoping the next one comes out fast. I need to know what happens. Everyone should read these books.
