I can’t wait for…

The Uprising by Lisa M. Stasse

The Uprising (The Forsaken, #2)

In this dystopian sequel to The Forsaken, Alenna has survived the brutality of life on the wheel—and now she’s going back for more.

Alenna escaped. It was expected that she would die on the wheel, the island where would-be criminals are sent as directed by the UNA—the totalitarian supercountry that was once the United States, Mexico, and Canada. But Alenna and her boyfriend, Liam, made it to safety. Except safety, they will soon learn, is relative.

In order to bring down the UNA, they must first gain control of the wheel. If the mission succeeds, the wheel will become a base of revolution. But between betrayals, a new Monk leading a more organized army of Drones, and the discovery of a previously unknown contingent, Alenna, Liam, and their allies might be in over their heads. One thing Alenna knows for sure: There will be a reckoning. And not everyone she loves will make it out alive. (Goodreads summary)

While I had issues with The Forsaken (insta-love!!), I really enjoyed the story overall. I’m looking forward to reading The Uprising, and I’m hoping that we’ll get more background into the relationship between Alenna and Liam. Plus, are you kidding?! These covers are gor.geous!!

Releases: August 6, 2013

    • Yes, I love these covers!! The cover of The Forsaken is visually amazing, but it’s even better after reading be book because all of the pieces of the cover come together. Every image serves a purpose. Love them!

  1. This cover is A-Maze-Ing. But I didn’t even finish book one. The Insta-Love! Uggh. And it was just so similar to all the other dystopians. I think I would have had a different reaction to it if I hadn’t read so many other dystopians at the time. But the covers are to die for.

    • Yes, the insta-love was NUTS in this book. There was absolutely NO reason for them to be so in lurrvvvve. I’m still going to give this one a chance.
      I need to see who designed these covers and see what else they’ve designed!
