The Revolution Of Ivy – Amy Engel

23198876

(The book of Ivy #2)

Synopsis 

Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty–forced marriages and murder plots–for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall’s borders.

But there is hope beyond the fence, as well. And when Bishop reappears in Ivy’s life, she must decide if returning to Westfall to take a final stand for what she believes is right is worth losing everything she’s fought for.


Review

The revolution of Ivy was such an amazing ending to such an epic series! It follows off where the first book ended, with Ivy thrown outside the fence alone and defenceless. It tells you the struggles that Ivy faces and the decisions she must chose trying to survive outside the fence. She comes across two people that quickly become the family she always wanted and they help teach her how to survive. I was so happy when Ivy and Bishop were reunited but angry that it took them so long to make up and accept what had happened in the past. I found it quite infuriating when they would just ignore each other for days on end, I mean Ivy was going on about how much she wanted to see Bishop again but she knew she would never get the chance and then Bishop finds her and she just gives him the silent treatment? But its okay they got their stuff together and made up in time for the epic finale.

The thing I love most about this book are the character developments. I love how strong Ivy and Bishop become in the second book and how they will do anything to protect each other. I also love Caleb and Ash and how they all become one family and stick together even at the very end.

A story of courage, bravery, love and just the right amount of suspense. This was such a great book and I think the ending was perfect to end the series.

Quotes

“I don’t understand how the pain of losing him can be a pale shadow in comparison to the pain of finding him again.”

“I just want to be with you. Walk next to you, Ivy, wherever you’re headed. That’s all.”

“You don’t stop loving someone just because they disappoint you.”

“I concentrate on the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other and continue moving forward even as part of me is left behind, beyond a fence I cannot breach.”

“Relax,” the girl says. She holds out a hand but doesn’t touch me. “We’re not going to hurt you.”
“Yet,” the man in the doorway says with a smirk.”
