Book Review: Revolutionary by Krista McGee

In the third installment of the Anomaly trilogy, Dr. Loudin has taken Thalli back to the underground State where he is attempting to recreate the world, which was destroyed by nuclear weapons, according to his own designs.  Not only does Thalli have to figure out out to save her friends from the evil genius, but she also needs to figure out why God doesn't seem to be answering her prayers.

Having read Hunger Games and Divergent, this dystopian series is better by far.  (You can read my review of Anomaly here and Luminary here.)  Since it takes in the near future (about forty years), the world McGee creates is much more believable.  And the fact that the author takes pains to make sure to preserve a Christian remnant reminds us that God will always, always, do the same.  Thalli makes a wonderful protagonist in that she just tries to do what is best for her friends and the world.  Sometimes, she makes mistakes, loses her temper, and things like that, but the author does not make her into some kind of extraordinary person in order to save the world.  Thalli does what she can and follows the direction of her Designer which is something that we should all strive for.

I want to thank BookLook Bloggers for my review copy of this book, but my opinions are my own.
