    I loved this book as much as the first, despite some issues I had with the ending This book takes place three years after the end of the first book Annabelle is a mech, an elite female warrior who is charged with protecting the border, rounding up boys and enforcing regulations.This book also lends insight into the Second American Civil War.As with the first book, this absolutely fascinates me When the Progressive Reunion seized power, men got suckered into supporting the Patriots they saw no alternative After war broke out, they learned that entrepreneur Adrianne Picard secretly provided the Progressive Reunion with mech gear and drones The war ended quickly Radical Patriots clung to Appalachia and limited government.The way this is conveyed throughout the book is in a simple manner that is plausible in light of today s political issues I live in the great state of Texas, which would probably be at the forefront of any Patriot party movement.In this book, Mr Erlick further examines the problems that usually plague any sort of utopian society In the Progressive Reunion stronghold, known as the Federal Union, Annabelle learns that the rules don t apply to all She sees things in her capacity as a soldier that further questions the confines of her society we re all equal, except the elite She tried to remember where she had read that Some banned book her mom kept hidden Animal Farm maybe Also in her capacity as a mech, Annabelle can help the unfortunate boys that are discovered living within the borders of the Federal Union She becomes part of the Underground Railroad that leads boys and men to safety in the Outland In this activity, she regularly meets with her adoptive mother s banished husband And in a fateful turn of events, meets Geo, her adoptive brother that she has never met.They both have to collaborate to survive as well as bring peace to their prospective homes.Again, I love the character of Annabelle for many reasons Her humanity and her compassion only deepen in this book She also pieces together many parts of a complex puzzle and is able to avert disaster.I also fell in love with the character of Geo He is strong, loyal, very intelligent and also works for what is right I loved reading about his conflicting feelings for Annabelle.I also loved reading about the gadgets and techniques Geo and his father came up with while living in the Outland They have electricity They have saferooms They have homemade weapons and other ways to ensure their safety for the most part.The problem I have with the ending is that it essentially abruptly ends Also too many loose ends are tied up at once in a nice pretty package As much as I love happy endings, things just seemed a little too convenient by the end.I would have liked an epilogue that sketches out Annabelle s new life or a hint that everything is alright beyond the last pages of the book.But overall, a very satisfying conclusion to the adventure Annabelle began in the first book.

    Annabelle has grown up in a world where females have weeded out the men and boys from their society and their lives Her adopted mother, a Tenn tucky state senator, still remembers the husband and son she sent into the Outlands to protect Annabelle has grown up believing her brother George is a monstrosity of a boy This novel picks up three years after the ending of The Rebel Within read my review here Annabelle is still paired with Dara in the Mechanized Female Warriors, and still is trying to evade and brush off the s advances Her younger sister Janine has now joined their ranks, and they are sent on a mission into no man s land, the strange common ground between the female Civ society and the male retreat of the Outlands.Governor Battani is still pressing forward with her own political agenda, the mechs are amping up their border patrol and missions, and Senator Scott is still opposing Battani on many issues until Battani gives Mama Scott an ultimatum she can t refuse.Annabelle and Janine are both captured in the Outland and held hostage, but Thane Edwards has underestimated Annabelle s resourcefulness She must impost her much hated mech presence on the very thin hospitality of those trying to sustain a life during the hard times on the frontiers of the Outlands She s not leaving without her sister, even if it means taking a stand against the much feared and well trained former mech Thane Edwards.The novel s chapters alternate between Annabelle s world and a young Outland man s world, until they eventually find each other in the Outland.Annabelle and Geo are both betrayed by their people, fighting against both of their worlds to do the right thing, and forging something new of their quickly deteriorating civilizations before civil war can strike again and take its toll.This is not a novel to be missed While the first was hard for me to get through at times, this novel pretty much lays it all out on the table The past of Annabelle is fully explained, the truth of George s banishment is shown clearly, and shows the strength and willpower of young individuals, which is something I find quite lacking in today s time.Annabelle continues to grow as an individual, even deceiving Geo along the way for his help She shows a softer side in this novel, as does her mech commander, Sam, which is totally out of place based on the hard nosed character she was portrayed as in the first book Geo is a character that grows throughout the novel in so many ways He is a young man trying to be a man but is oppressed by the societal structures of the Outland and the cause his father has taken up to protect others I loved Geo s character he has a heart to match Annabelle, even if he was unfocused at times.I am intrigued to see how Annabelle and Geo will build a new Appalachia, in hand with their mother and Sam, and how their relationship will progress I m keeping my fingers crossed for a third book

    For the nth time in my life, I read a book cover to cover, only to realise that it is NOT the first book in a series I am banging my head on the desk right now Seriously No wonder chunks of the book makes zero sense to me.Which brings me to the first thing I had wanted to point out before the penny dropped nothing makes sense at all for the first half of the book Unless you have read The Rebel Within, the first book in the series, before you jump into this one I am not one of those people So apologies to the author, because I was about to file a complain for the major confusions Just kidding.Here s a piece of useful advice for everyone out there never read book series out of order because most of the time you ll be the one with messed up brain cells Now that that is out of the way LOVE this book I do, I do, I do It s so intense, with adrenaline pumping actions at every turn of the pages We also have the kind of romance that is found in the most unlikely places, with the most unlikely people.And the plot twists Sheesh, no wonder I have trust issues All in all, Rebels Divided is just my kind of thing and I love it despite the headaches clears throat.5 stars

    Again, I m not going to give a summary others do that effectively Instead, I d like to say that I enjoyed Lance Erlick s Rebels Divided much than its prequel Erlick s action has tightened up, the speeches are succinct and his characters are deeper and developed As well, he has included sensory descriptions, which increased my enjoyment With a complex vocabulary, it also allowed the characters to become mature.Well done, Lance I m looking forward to coming books from ypi

    Nicely paced SF novel with than a few twists to keep the reader wondering.it s a future world after a second civil war The story is concentrated between two sides Tenn Tucky, the merging of the two states where women control things and have driven most men out The few left are virtually slave labor Appalachia, concentrate in Biltmoor where it s mostly men.As with most political groups, corruption reigns and what the regular folks want is not even considered.In this environment comes two young people, Geo of Appalachia, and Annabelle, a mech warrior of Tenn Tucky The pair of them are connected in ways they don t realize, but will learn.Fine SF novel.

    DNF 37% Book source NetGalleyI have no idea wtf is going on in this YA Dystopian story It doesn t help that the writing is only so so, the dialogue is stilted and for the love of all that s holy, I cannot stand when a character says something like, We have to go Now Then the other character is all, Uh, who are you Hey You re the enemy Why should I go with you Then they argue for like ten hours when the danger is only seconds away rolls eyes The nicest thing I can say is, this world is a very interesting concept However, the execution is very lackluster.

    Rebels Divided is the follow up to The Rebels Within However, this book can definitely be a stand alone What was most notable for me were the action scenes I couldn t put the book down because of them Overall, the premise of the book is intriguing would have loved to see homosexual and heterosexual tendencies within both societies The world building was fantastic, and I really enjoyed the characters and their development within the book I look forward to reading other works by Erlick.

    Rebels Divided Lance ErlickThe world has changed greatly after the Second American Civil War As with all nations things happen that divide it and in this case splits it down the middle As women had to fight for the right to vote, better jobs and to have the right to speak out in this new world, the Federal Union controls what happens in the country and those in charge are all females along with the aide of the Egg Fusion Fertilization and Female Mechanized Warriors The males now have to flee for their lives and are definitely treated in a subservient manner Living in the male dominated Appalachian Outland these young men learn how to deal with life, learn how to become individuals except for one man named Thane Edwards that has all of the power over the church and the economy Rangers, as they are called in this place are similar to the Texas Rangers we see in many western programs Two separate worlds, two separate governments fighting for control, power and the right to dominate When the governor of Tenn tucky and the Outland warlord decide to create a special deal the fate of many is at risk and their hope to become powerful the goal When Geo encounters a Mech named Karen he has no choice but to kill her Fighting Union mechs and protecting their neighbors, taking in refugees that seek refuge from the Federal and Ranger cruelty, Geo along with his pa live in a poor Outland glen hoping to hide from the local Rangers, stay alive and help others Meet Annabelle who is now a Mech Warrior, not of her own choice but forced into this program in order to protect her sister and her family or face being exiled With a captain that hates her and does all she can to make her life unbearable, Geo s Mom who was forced to leave her family is bringing up Annabelle, who lost her parents at a young age Tough, brazen, filled with fire she is determined to try and conform to the rules of the Federal Union but can she But, things change when Karen, her friend is killed Facing this young man from the Outland and having the chance to kill him too, you wonder why she did not avenge her friend s death and let him live But, Annabelle is haunted by her friend s death and when approached by her superior she is confronted with her feelings, her new assignment and given little opportunity or time to mourn her friend Not allowed to see the Outland and hoping to complete her next assignment and capture the escapee, Annabelle is about to learn some hard lessons when her adopted sister is kidnapped Things begin to change as Annabelle finds herself in dangerous territory after going to a party with her sister and Dara and then beginning her mission the next day Explosions, the Union and Rangers after her, links disconnected and then the unthinkable happen once again Sent to capture a man named Cory Phillips little does she know that he has enlisted the help of someone else When Dara steps away, her sister is in danger, a young boy named Tommy is brought to safety, and what happens next will change everything Mech warriors are required to complete their missions and not question their superiors Families are separated and boys are not allowed in certain areas or they are taken into custody The Patriots vs the Union two separate parties almost like those we have in the present today Each side wanting control and each wanting power With the economy in trouble, food supplies on the decline we wonder if the author is trying to send a message to everyone that this just might happen Annabelle learns early on how to defend herself but when ordered to marry Thane Edwards, the Outland Warlord, now they have gone too far Hoping to escape she and her sister and Dara venture out to find Cory Phillips and bring him in but the end result would result in her sister being kidnapped and Annabelle taken captive When face to face with Thane Edwards she finds herself than just repulsed, angry with her adopted mother for cowering to his demands and the Governor s crooked agenda as things are about to change Escaping captivity with some help she finds Geo and together they just might team up to save Janine and maybe change things for everyone How far would you go to save your adopted sister How far would you go to right so many wrongs In a world that is not that different than ours today where restrictions are placed on travel, food allowances, jobs and even economic advancement on the decline the author brings to light what might happen in the future Girls are not allowed to see or deal with boys Boys are restricted to living in exile and Rangers fight Mechs and no one seems to be able to create peace Union Mechs and Outland Rangers are out to stop Geo and Annabelle Taxes, tithes, greed and power are some of the driving forces behind what most want One man stands to gain it all and will stop at nothing including killing to rule Justice seems outlawed and the rules that apply are the ones set by Edwards and his minions When Geo s father is murdered in cold blood and Janine is kidnapped will they team up to avenge his death and find her before it s too late Betrayals, lies, deceits, hate, vengeance and murder are just some of the issues brought to light in this interesting novel where two sides are so divided but to win they must unite When things come to a head Annabelle and Geo face some harsh realities as sometimes trust is misplaced and the end result could cost you than you think With their President being held hostage and Edwards ordering many innocent people killed, will Annabelle and Geo be able to find Janine and stop what Edwards has planned Conspiracies, treachery and traitors Who can Annabelle trust Who is really on the side of peace and who is really working behind the scenes for the other side Will she really have to go through with the marriage to Edwards Sometimes the answer is right in front of you and you just don t know it as one savvy tech teen just might hold all the cards to stop what others have put in motion Explosives, grenades, fight scenes that are heart stopping and vividly depicted characters bring this outstanding YA novel to life for young adults An ending that you won t expect and a fight that still remains to be finished as a chance for peace has come but will tyranny resurface and will Annabelle and Geo be able to create a better world for Mechs, Civs and the people of Appalachia Lessons in trust, hope, loyalty and friendship are learned and even a world filled with corruption, hate, rules that were made for those at the top, families torn apart and girls forced into slavery, being soldiers and two young people that aimed to create a better world Annabelle is definitely a great role model for young adults as if Janine with their respect for their parents, work ethic, loyalty to family and their understanding that working as a team just might be the way to create Harmony Fran Lewis reviewer

    What I Liked Annabelle has grown so much in between the two books and it shows She acts much mature than she did in the first book and she s even become cautious about how she is with her rebellious tendencies Three year as a mech is a lot of time for her to grow, but she s still the same Annabelle we knew in the first book with her attitude and stubbornness She s still even incredibly protective over Janine She s also friendly with her mech sisters than she was in the first book, and she s shown to be close to some of them like she isn t with others Dara appears as well, and she doesn t seem to have changed much in the sense that she still seems to be chasing after Annabelle three years down the road We re also introduced to a host of new characters to go with Annabelle s stay in the Outlands, the main one being George or Geo as he seems to go by Geo s actually an interesting character and gives us a good bounce off with the alternating perspective between him and Annabelle throughout the novel Geo s growth in the novel was noticeable, and he was a character who did sometimes surprise me Actually, Annabelle surprised me than anyone, she did what she had to do to rescue Janine and let me tell you the way she went about it with Geo in the beginning showed that she s learned how to get what she wants I loved them both, I really did and I m curious as to what the sequel to this book will be like The writing was better in this book than the first book, and that pleased me.What I Didn t Like Okay, seriously, what happened to the plot at the end of book one that got set up I was totally expecting that one to play out in book two But instead we get sent three years into the future and we don t know what happens during the plot set up at the end of book one I was frankly rather puzzled by this development, it didn t add up to me There were also some parts that didn t quite add up, and they left me a little puzzled, such as Annabelle being a mech warrior but not being able to stay silent when her life is in danger and keeps asking questions, what was even up with that Plus she s only able to survive in the wilderness as long as she has her mech suit, and didn t Sam tell her she would have to know how to survive without one in case of emergency Pretty sure she should have learned to fend for herself in the wilderness without her mech suit Some portions again suffered from bad writing, it was either was just too rushed or not worded right to make sense Plus the senseless fighting Annabelle initiated with Geo.Overall Review I love this book than I do the first one despite its hiccups and faults, its paced really well and interesting in a way that keeps you guessing with than a few twist to keep you from getting comfortable with how everything is playing out Sam even shows a new face in this book that s a bit kinder than the tough shelled person we knew in the first book Annabelle has grown in some ways, but we still see that she s dealing with doubts and she s got her faults There an interesting plot, interesting characters, and an ending that could leave you wondering what happens afterward All in all, a lovely addition to this series.Recommend Why yes I do It s a really good book, in its own way If you liked the first one then you should definitely read the second one

    I have mixed emotions about this book The first book was really good and I couldn t wait to start this one I liked the book but there were things that really bothered me.My first question what happened to her undercover job at the police station The first book ended with her not getting into Mechs because she was supposed to go undercover It is never mentioned in RD and jumps three years and she has advanced in the Mech program What happened The next question when did Annabelle turn into a hard core Mech I was hoping she would have figured out how to help people since she was a Mech now but she seems to have lost her purpose and focus She only seems to focus when her and her sister are kidnapped She seems very conceited in this book, like when she talks about the filthy outlanders Is she too good to help those people What happened to the girl that wanted to help boys escape Then the scene with the boy tied to the bed at a party They hate boys but somehow they can stomach to rape someone they hate and Annabelle goes along with it What All they while dressed like a guy I was definitely weirded out by that scene I am disappointed in Annabelle s character in this book Especially how she interacts with Geo All she talks about is her sister and guilt trips Geo the entire book Geo just lost his dad and home and all she talks about is Janine Not to mention that she never shuts up She is military trained and somehow she can t understand to keep quiet while they are running for their lives Her picking fights with Geo was a little weird for me too Did she do that with other Mechs Are they all touchy feely and then next thing you know they are fighting Her trying to prove she can fight a man and therefore take care of herself was a little ridiculous Oh yeah she can kick your butt but can she kill and field dress a deer Can she feed herself and find water Can she find her way through the woods or back home No Not without her Mech suit But she sure showed him by kicking his butt.The good thing about the book was the action Which was great from the start and carried all the way through I was looking forward to this book but it left me feeling like I had no closure This book could have easily been made into two books Some of the things happened too fast I think it was a week that the book spanned I wonder if there will be another book to tie up loose ends like meeting her mother, does Annabelle and Geo get married, do they get peace or does it fall apart There were too many things left open I did enjoy the book and hopefully there will be another book to tie some things up and maybe the Annabelle from the first will come back.
