This series has been phenomenal! The Uprising is book 3 in The Union series and I am absolutely in love with this world and the characters. This book in full of action and adventure as well as love and loss. It melds these elements together is such a well-crafted way that I didn’t want it to end. By this point in the series, a lot of the endgame is finally starting to fall into place and when I was reading I thought this was the final book, so when I came upon the ending I knew there had to be more and I couldn’t have been happier.
Evan is once again thrust into making life altering decisions and she has finally accepted her role in this world. She also accepts her love for Cyrus. Whom we get his point of view in this book, which was so perfect. Evan and Cyrus are meant for each other…but circumstances have them completely separated for most of this book, which was heartbreaking in itself, but fortunately worked in a suspenseful way. Evan is such a well written character. She is strong and when she makes mistakes its not a woe is me moment. It turns into pulling herself up by her bootstraps and fixing the problems at hand. She has really grown leaps and bounds since book 1, not in a forced way, but in she has learned from her naivety about the world she lives in through her experiences and used that to mold her into a very empathetic hero.
There is a little bit of pining and woe-is-me on both Evan and Cyrus’ parts when they are struggling to vocalize their emotions, but again Evan is a teenager and Cyrus grew up in a much harder environment so I think their personalities make perfect sense when it comes to their uneasiness to settle into themselves and accept each other for who they are, and that they are capable of being together. Cyrus has some of the most swoony lines ever in this book, I am so dying for their HEA! Do you hear me, T.H. Hernandez? I need them together, no more possible love triangles, no more angsty will they or won’t they! Just plain old we’re in love together and we are bringing down the damn uprising…together!
I have said it before in my past reviews but this book really makes you care for characters and it writes in the importance of friendships and family so well. I have absolutely fallen in love with all of the characters, even the ones I want to hate but I can’t because they too aren’t bad people, just slightly conniving. Oh and I love Rainey. Give me more of her. Honestly, all the side characters are so good, they all bring something to this story and not a one of them feels extraneous.
The Uprising has everything I need in a good book; a well-built dystopia, a futuristic world, conspiracies, action, adventure, and most of all love. I mean what are we doing if there isn’t love in our world! We need to fight for something, we need love to keep us motivated to keep us balanced. I am not so patiently waiting on book 4 and I highly recommend if you love a perfect dystopian read!
First off I was not prepared for what happened in the end. I thought that this was the last book in the series, but now I am desperate for more. I read the last paragraph and found myself clicking frantically to the next page on my kindle with nothing there. I was shocked. Now I am even more invested than I was before and I cannot wait for what is to come. All I can say is that it had better come quickly or I just might freak out.
This story was filled with action. There is a common goal in mind for all the characters involved and watching that unfold was gripping. The story progresses logically and brilliantly adding to the series a sense of more excitement and danger. One thing that is different in this book than all the others before is that it is in dual POVs. I loved this idea. We see things unfold though Evan and Cyrus’ viewpoints and that helps to enhance the budding romance and the emotional attachment of the series. Everything in this book is a classic take on the dystopian story. There are teenagers and young adults fighting against an faceless tyranny, one that is set to destroy what they know. It is always interesting to see how an author spins that theme into something new. Hernandez does a great job of making the issues, emotions, and situations age appropriate. There is quite a bit of floundering. The characters must learn to work through emotional issues and roadblocks they encounter. It is messy which makes it plausible and a great story. I was invested in what happened to Evan and Cyrus. In my mind they were always meant to be. Seeing them both muddle through what is happening in dual POVs gives more depth to the story and a more satisfying romantic storyline.
Adventure is this books source of intrigue. There is not a dull moment. As the plans to fight the Uprising become more complicated, so do the dangerous missions and plans. I loved seeing how this group problem solves. They must learn to enhance their strengths as a whole and compensate for weaknesses. We see that even the most brilliant and though out plans have the chance to go wrong and the adrenaline from what could happen and what does happen carry the book into something exciting. This book converges all the people we have met from the very beginning. We see the people from the Union working and planning with the people from the Ruins. There are so many different strengths that each person brings to the story, allowing everything to progress and bring a stunning story to life. I loved seeing everyone together and how the comradery grows with each situation.
The overall emotion and depth of this story is profound. In this book we see so much that happens and the characters are not immune. The reality of what happens and the consequences they face are heartbreakingly written. Hernandez does a great job of getting the reader to emotionally invest in what is taking place and rooting on the characters we meet. The Union Series is by far one of my most favorite Young Adult series ever! It is a story of love, loss, and fight. There is depth that surprises you and characters that will endear you to the series. The twists and turns of this book kept me on my toes, always wondering what would happen next and who would survive in the end. What I thought would be an epic conclusion became yet another gripping step in the ladder to see what would happen in the end.
