Book Review ~ Revolution by Jessica Frances


Revolution 
by Jessica Frances
Publication date: January 26th 2016 
Genres: New Adult, Dystopia



I was raised in a world where humans no longer rule.
In the past, we made a terrible mistake by creating a new species we thought would serve us as our army, which led to our downfall.
There was a war, we lost, and many lives were massacred. It was the end of life as we knew it and the beginning of a hell we were now trapped in. We became enslaved to what we now called Superiors, becoming pets to them, simply there to entertain.
In a world so miserable, I managed to do the unthinkable: I fell in love. But even that was doomed, because to love a Superior was forbidden.
What the rest of the Superiors didn’t know was how deeply a human could love or how resilient we became when we were hurt.
The Superiors never could have imagined an uprising, which was why they never saw it coming.
Humans deserved to be free, and I would stop at nothing to deliver that promise.
My name is Tilly, and I am still alive with one sole purpose: to begin a revolution.

~
I had been raised to believe humans were worthless. We owned them and controlled them, and when we were done with them, we threw them away. Therefore, I never thought I would ever feel more for Tilly than disinterest. I never expected to want to save her.
It was forbidden for a Superior to love a human. No one had ever crossed that line, but I did. I fell madly in love with her, so it was no surprise how we ended up.
I was raised to be a soldier, and that was what I was always going to be. However, I was not a soldier for the Superiors, not anymore.
I became a soldier for humans, and I would stop at nothing to help them. They deserved to be free, and I would die protecting them.
My name is Johnny, and I am here with one sole purpose: to finish a revolution.

"I like to think we're the beginning of a revolution.  We're going to change our fate and the fate of future humans."

In Jessica Frances' newest release, Revolution, she has created a world where humans are pets/slaves and have no rights whatsoever - none - zero - zip.  Created for the sole purpose to help win wars, the Superiors have taken over and feel humans are the filth of the Earth and have taken away their rights.  But there are some Superiors who feel as though the humans should have the same rights as they do and there are humans who have escaped the madness of this new world to find a better life.  With these two groups combining forces, a revolution is about to begin and with that, hope for a better future where everyone can live together in peace.

Not only do we the readers get a front row seat for this battle for human rights, we also get to be a part of a forbidden romance between two souls that are destined to be together despite the rules society has drawn.  This is truly one book you will want to pick up immediately!

As a HUGE fan of Jessica Frances, whenever she releases a new book, I immediately one-click and devour it like there is no tomorrow.  With her newest release, Revolution, Ms. Frances has once again shown her outstanding talent by writing a totally amazing story that far exceeded my expectations.  Revolution is quite different from her previous works and proves just how diversified she can be with her writing talent.  Her ability to draw the reader into the story and being able to visualize everything going on and connecting with the characters makes for an engaging and captivating reading experience.  Revolution is an epic story that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time - savoring every word and craving more.  The ending was perfect and concluded in the happily ever after that was well deserving of this story.

This fascinating stand alone is a must read for any fan of dystopian fiction with a love story like no other and one that I would highly recommend.
