The thrilling conclusion to J. A. Souders’s riveting SF psychological thriller series for teens

In this conclusion to J. A. Souders’s thrilling, twist-filled Elysium Chronicles series, Evie Winters and Gavin Hunter return to the isolated, dangerous underwater city that they fought so hard to escape.

Back in Elysium at last, Evie has finally found her true self hidden under layers and layers of false memories implanted by the woman she knew as Mother. Thanks to the intervention of her father, she knows the horrible truth about Mother and her insidious plans for her city. With the help of the love of her life, Gavin, and her best friend, Asher St. James, she’s determined to free her people from the cruel dictatorship of Mother’s laws. But how do you free people who don’t know they need rescuing?

Working with the growing Underground rebellion, Evie tries to remove Mother from her position by force—with disastrous results. As the body count rises, Evie must find a way to save Elysium before Mother destroys them all.


Thank you Tor Teen for sending me a copy of Rebellion for review. This in no way affected my opinion. 

What a fantastic conclusion to this trilogy. I love how J. A. Souders makes her heroines kick butt and not hold back punches. Evie is soft in all the right ways but knows how to take care of herself. I guess you would have to with Mother. Yes, Mother is back with a vengeance. Oh how I love to hate her. I loved the dual POV in this one. I kept reading straight through to get to the next POV to see what would happen next.

"Well, you know what they say about rumors, Mayor. They're carried by haters, spread by fools, and believed by idiots." ~ literally my new favorite line in a book.

I have to say this is one of my favorite science fiction series. This book has so many layers. From enforcers that are kick butt females that can take on anyone. To a ruler who is a perfect example of manipulation at it's finest. To doctors who have inserted nanites into human subjects and created monsters. Then the nanites are used control the population that does not always want to be controlled. Rebellion delivers non-stop action from start to finish. "Survival is all about who has the best weapons. Where's yours, Mayor?"

This book even delivered humor. I am not kidding you when you read page 262 come back and comment on this post. It is so hilarious. This is a must read series and I can not wait to see what Souders will write next.

  1. I don't think that I would. Escaping would be easy, but I wouldn't give up my freedom just so that I could escape. On the other hand, an underwater society sounds awesome. =P

  2. No, I would not escape. this limit of freedom and free will is not for me. But I'd love to read about a character that would make this choice.

  3. No, I would not escape to a carefree world under the sea. The lack of conflict could in itself be a problem.

  4. If I was given this option back in high school I totally would have taken up the offer. But, at the moment I would have to decline (unless there happened to be the guy of my dreams who was going to be there, then I definitely would).
