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.
This was wonderful ending to this trilogy. Mira had thought that she would find a hiding place with people like her. Instead, she is in the middle of a war. She isn't sure who she can trust, other than the 3 humans she brought with her. Some of the Otherkin respect her, many hold her in contempt, and others still are afraid of her and the changes that have come with her arrival. Mira knows she will still have to fight, but exactly for whom and why are decisions she must make.
Picking up right where the second book leaves off, Revolution shows Mira and her group still in limbo with the Otherkin. They want Mira to do their bidding in exchange for keeping her humans safe. Mira doesn't trust many, if any of them. She had wanted a relaxing life after what she'd lived through, but that wasn't looking promising. Besides, she still had to go in and free certain of her friends from the horrible life she had lead. I was rooting for her through the whole thing and hoping she wound up with the 'right guy' as I absolutely had a favorite. Overall, there were some surprises, plenty of action, and betrayal in spades. I completely enjoyed it.
This is a 5/5. I couldn't wait for this book to come out and I wasn't disappointed. I loved the whole cast of characters the author put together in this trilogy.
