"Notes on a Rebellion" is a well-written, smooth flowing dystopian novel. Full of twists and unexpected developments, it keeps you surprised at every turn. Hepburn has a delightfully feminine voice, and she has some gems: "It's the beginning of the future. It could well be the end of everything" and "He's in my personal space and I sure didn't invite him." If you like fantasy, there's plenty to delight your interest. This is not a dark dystopian novel; it's full of light, and that's a good thing. It's a good start to her series, one that promises more to come.
I started this a long time ago, but everything in the world that could go wrong, did. But I finally got it back in my hands, and glad I did!
The world and character building are far above average, which is actually rare for authors coming out. I was really surprised at the change of landscape, especially the temperature.
A fantasy dystopia of a world being ravaged by winged beasts, and a small group of humans that have realized they are already dead, so what do they have to lose in fighting back? The worst possible scenario an enemy, or in this case, enemies, can face. An opponent whose every forward moving step, is a victory.
The drastic changes in weather, vegetation, texture, animals and beings, elevations, and the like make this an easier read, when you start to understand the world they are living in.
The relationship between the protagonist and her dog is actually realistic. I hate the dog/master scenario that would never emulate you and your pet in real life, but this one actually makes you glad to see her dog is just like yours.
The other "warriors", (a title inwardly deserved, not via sword and brawn) on the journey are who I would want, if I was on the same quest. It is so cliche to have the same elite fighter force of raging steroid and max power heroes, that folks never realize, maybe the courage and genius of the guy that might be nothing more than an average guy bagging your groceries, was what was really needed.
The protagonist has a personal agenda of answers she is searching for, as is expected with all stories. The difference here, is that the so-called "Heroine" is just an ordinary girl with a slingshot, someone easily underestimated, until that indifference towards her, turns out to be her greatest strength.
Everyone is a liability in their own way on this adventure, but everyone has a special strength that makes up for the liability of another, making this group of everyday nobodies, relatable as being you and your neighbors down the street.
This book is excellent in quality. Dark readable type, wonderful size. Quality pages, I never even cared about editing, because there was no real errors anywhere, and if they were, I had no interest in them, because of the readability of the story. The cover is what sold me before reading, and when the book arrived, It looked even better in person. I paid $11.65 at Amazon, and after receiving it, I would have paid as much $12.95 for it. It would be worth at least another dollar quality wise.
