Although we, thankfully, don't like in the world controlled by the GDO, sometimes it feels as though absolute corporate power isn't that far away. I like the parallels of reality in this-hopefully an awakening to politics for readers too.
The love story is really compelling as is the action. A perfect combination of head and heart! Looking forward to the second instalment!
Europe has been conquered by a military organisation called the Global Defence Organisation. Our main character, Cassia, decides to enter the military in order to help her mother, who needs life saving drugs, and to break her father out of prison.
There are many things to like about this novel. The characters are well drawn, and the romance develops naturally. Cassia isn’t some super hero planning to take on the state, merely a young woman who simply wants to save those whom she loves.
The reason for four stars rather than five is that at times I felt as if I’d read the novel before. The use of a computer virus, a prison break, and a nasty superior trying to wrest sexual favours from an underling felt familiar. The plot was well constructed but I was never caught by surprise.
A good start and it’ll be interesting how the author develops in her future works.
I loved that we are finally given a female character who has to LEARN self-defence and how to fight, but more importantly, her talent is in coding and computers! So often we're told that girls can't do those things and don't have those kinds of skills but Rebellion works to subvert that "view". I thought that Cass was a really over-ambitious character, but in the best way possible. She was fuelled by her frustrations and her passions, and put those emotions into the achievement of goals which may have initially seemed unattainable. I also enjoyed seeing the different ways in which the act of "rebellion" was stretched between the two groups in the book. Violence vs Non-violence. It's always an interesting aspect, when people are fighting the same cause but through different aims and with opposing ideals. Drummer and Jono - brilliant characters, and personally for me, they were the light in some of Rebellion's scenes that otherwise would have been very dark and heavy. The situation that the GDO has everyone in is frightening, and these characters really do add a lot of much needed humour.
If you love Dystopian or YA novels, or even just looking for a book with a strong female lead, I'd recommend Rebellion!
