Review for Revolution by Katie Salidas - 5 out of 5!
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Peace is an illusion. Blood, violence, and death follow Mira like shadows.
Battle lines have been drawn between human and Otherkin, and a bloody war is on the horizon: one that will end in either a shift in the world’s balance of power...or ultimate destruction.
In spite of their strength, powers, and a rage known only by the oppressed, the Otherkin are evenly matched by the superior numbers of the human army. To tip the balance in their favor, the Otherkin need more soldiers – and their only options are the Gladiators of New Haven city.
Mira is sent across enemy lines to recruit any able-bodied vampires to her cause. But what she discovers along the way will blur the lines between friends and enemies. Seeds of doubt weaken Mira’s allegiance, and she finds herself torn between the old masters who used her as entertainment and the new ones who consider her as nothing more than a weapon.
As the war draws near, Mira will have to decide what she is truly fighting for.
MY REVIEW -
Loved this addition to this series! Mira continues to kick lots of butt, and prove that she is definitely someone that shouldn't be crossed. Vampire Mira, human Lucian, and werewolf Stryker, head back to the city where Mira was held prisoner in order to save the other prisoners, and to hopefully find allies. Mira has hopes of peace between humans and the Otherkin (Vampires, Shifters, etc.), but everyone isn't on board with that plan, so Mira needs to watch her back. Mira has lots of enemies trying to kill her; some she expects, but others she doesn't see coming, so there's lots of dangerous situations that Mira finds herself in. Lots of action in this book, and it's great to see some people get what's been coming to them for a long time now! Mira's character also continues to grow, and I'm excited to see her continue to develop. There's a little bit of romance in this book, but Mira is still hurting over the death of her last mate and she also finds it very hard to trust others, so it's slow going. I love that we are getting to see a little bit softer side of Mira! Excited to see where this story is going to go next!
