The Safe Lands have long kept the true meaning of Liberation secret from their people. But after being sentenced to Liberation themselves, Mason and Omar soon discover the truth.
Levi watched his brothers’ public sentencing and tries to hold out hope they are still alive, He is forced to focus his attention elsewhere, however, when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and made the Safe Lands’ newest Queen. His only choice to save Jemma may be to take up Omar’s old role of undercover vigilante, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will Levi’s new role be enough?
Meanwhile, Jemma’s sister, Shaylinn, is ready to give birth to the “Safe Lands’” children … but not even Ciddah is sure they can be delivered safely in the midst of a rebellion. And Mason must face the fact Omar’s illness could be fatal.
If they can all unite their efforts, together they may be able to expose the Safe Lands’ lies to the people. But if they fail, they will all surely die.
I had already read the first two book in this series by Williamson, so I was excited to see what happened next to Levi, Mason, and the others from Glenrock. It took me a few pages to fully immerse myself into the story and remember all the slang terms that Williamson uses in the Safe Lands, but once I did, I couldn’t put the book down.
This is definitely my favorite book from this series. Williamson does a great job in bringing all the characters to a realistic conclusion, which I particularly appreciated. The plot moves along very quickly and holds the attention of the reader throughout the book. In this book, more than the other two, the Glenrock people take the opportunity to share their faith with the Safe Land people and the Below Grounders, which was nice to read.
If you have read the previous two books in the series, this one is a must read. I’m not sure how easy it would be for someone to pick up the storyline if they hadn’t already read the other two. The book really takes off running and the relationships between the characters aren’t reviewed much, so it might be hard to enjoy this one without reading the other ones.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
