This series is definitely best read in order. In 'The Uncloaked', the Progressive Reform Party was voted into power and established a New Order: “No authority, on earth or in heaven, is above the power of the newly established order. Moreover, any claim of higher authority is punishable as treason.” To Braxton Luther, the answer seemed simple: Tick the right boxes and play the game. But then he found out what ‘playing the game’ required. There is no room for apathy now; doing nothing is still a decision, and it will cost more innocent lives.
When 'Tearing the Veil' opens, several months have passed since the events that closed 'The Uncloaked'. Braxton lives with the knowledge of all that his foolish naivety has already cost—both himself and others, most particularly Eliza—and he’s determined to stop Eliza’s sister, Hannah, from making the same stupid choices. Unfortunately, some people have to learn the hard way. But Hannah’s course takes a slightly different turn, one that confuses her all the more, and tangles her heart in an impossible knot.
Hannah and Braxton are both fantastic characters: passionate and stubborn, and more often than not, learning the hard way. But that somehow makes them stronger, and they definitely need strength— physical, mental, AND emotional—to do what needs to be done so that everyone will see the Party for what it really is. In fact, if the last pages of 'Tearing the Veil' are anything to go by, they’ll be needing more yet!
J. Rodes puts heart and soul into everything she writes, and I absolutely cannot wait to read the rest of this series.
I received a copy of this novel from the author. This has not influenced the content of my review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.
I was blown away by this book. I enjoy YA dystopian books, though it is not my favorite genre. What stood out in this novel was the strong theme of faith in Jesus and the unapologetic references to Scripture and hymns, which are usually absent in this genre.
The book was well-written. The writing flowed well, the action was fast-paced, the characters were note-worthy, and the plot was intricate without being overly complicated. I had quite a few "gasp, I can't believe that just happened" moments throughout the book which kept the suspense alive while I raced to the end of the book (knowing that I'll find a cliff-hanger, since this is book 2 of a trilogy).
Braxton and Hannah are both immature, selfish, self-absorbed young adults in a society controlled by the Party that has basically brainwashed the entire country. Braxton apparently did a lot of growing up in book 1 and he truly rises to the occasion in this book and emerges as a hero fighting for the rebellion against the Party. Hannah does a lot of maturing in this book and finally realizes her purpose and meaning. The story is told in first person point of view from Braxton and Hannah's perspectives. It would be interesting to see if the perspectives change in the next novel.
Now I need to go back and read Uncloaked. I'm breathlessly waiting for the final installment of this series!
I was given an ARC of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. A favorable review was not required. All comments and opinions are solely my own.
Tearing the Veil is told from two points of view, Braxton Luther and Hannah Knight (Eliza's little sister). I really enjoyed having the different viewpoints. Hannah's unpredictable and impulsive, reminding me a lot of how Braxton was in the first book. Braxton's matured a lot and now sees the errors of his former ways. He's trying his best to do the right thing. The author has a real way with words making me feel a deep connection to the characters and their circumstances.
From the very beginning to the very end, danger seeped out of the pages and I had a feeling of dread in the pit of my stomach. I was anxious the whole way through. There were times when I'd have to set my Kindle aside for a minute, take some deep breaths, and calm down. The things The Party were doing made my blood boil. Their tactics, propaganda, show of force/power, reformation camps, etc. harkened back to Nazi Germany. Terrifying!
This series is so relevant to our world right now. If we stay silent, keep turning a blind eye to the injustices, to the evils, to the just plain wrong, I'm afraid the picture painted in these books could very well become our grim reality.
Tearing the Veil was an extremely thought-provoking novel that I HIGHLY recommend to everyone! Would I be brave enough to stand against such evil? I certainly hope so!
I received an e-ARC of this book from the author and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my own honest opinion.
