Review: Subversive by Rebecca Royce



Read from November 21 to 24, 2014

Synopsis: Rachel Clancy has been through a lot. With a mission to fight vampires, while losing two boyfriends—one to a vampire and one because of his daddy issues—she is in charge of a secret revolution that could change Genesis, her home, forever. Her confidence is shot, her hands are shaking, and she hasn’t felt a real emotion, except for anger, in a long time.

But Rachel should never be counted out. She sees things others can’t, even if her ideas are considered downright traitorous. The life destined for Rachel is to lead in the world, filled with vampires and werewolves instead of romance and flowers—always forced to fight to stay alive and vanquish any threat to her friends and family. But no matter how many times she’s won, the evil that has stalked her never forgets her name….

Life is a continuous battle that never ends…

Bookish Things: 151 pages. The cover is lovely and ties in nicely with the other covers of the series. This is book 3 in The Warrior Series. This is the 21st book by Rebecca that I’ve read.

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $3.05 or paperback for $7.99

My Review: 

It’s been a while since I started Rebecca Royce’s Warrior series, over three years actually. This did not detract from the story though. In fact, I’d argue that returning to Rachel Clancy’s rag-tag crew of teens after a sizeable break was even better than rushing through the series as quickly as I could. Coming back to witness Jason and Rachel’s chemistry, Deacon’s strange intense emotions and the raging battles between vampires, werewolves and humans was a welcome relief from the ho-hum of some of the other books I’ve recently been reading.

I enjoyed the action, the deceptions and the wicked twist in the tale. I can honestly say I wasn’t expecting that one.

With a very strong theme of independence, yet feeling alone permeating the story, I was left with a strong feeling of desolation at the close.

Luckily, there’s another two books in the series, so I know Rebecca will have more twists and turns for me to endure with the crew. Bring it on!!

I did get a little annoyed with all the ‘I love you, no, I love you, no I actually love him,” that occurred in this book, it was much stronger than I remember it being in the other books. I hope this little issue doesn’t become the main theme of the remaining books.

I’ll be onto the next ones a lot sooner this time.
