Review: The Revolution of Ivy by Amy Engel

The Revolution of Ivy
by Amy Engel 
Paperback, 290 pages

Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty--forced marriages and murder plots--for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall's borders.

But there is hope beyond the fence, as well. And when Bishop reappears in Ivy's life, she must decide if returning to Westfall to take a final stand for what she believes is right is worth losing everything she's fought for. 

I can’t deny that the main thing I love about this duology is the romance. I fell in love with Bishop and Ivy in THE BOOK OF IVY, and after reading this one, I am now even more in love. I am in love with Bishop and the way he cares for Ivy. I loved how he was constantly putting himself in her shoes and was understanding. He had faith in Ivy from the beginning and continued to till the very end. I am in love with Bishop and Ivy as a couple.

THE REVOLUTION OF IVY opens up with plenty of suspense. Ivy finds herself in some very dangerous situations, but not once did she think about giving up. She figured she would suffer outside the wall, and would eventually be killed, or die from starvation, but she was determine to live as long as possible. She knew that what she had done had landed her outside the wall, and she accepted it. I did not find her weak at all.

Ivy fights for survival, makes new friends, and accepts her new life. Of course all that changes when Bishop comes slamming back into her life. Which, by the way, was probably one of my favorite moments in the entire book. I loved the way Amy Engel took the story.

I truly enjoyed this sequel and am a little sad that we won’t be getting another book in the series. I wish it was a bit longer. Amy Engel introduces two new characters that I immediately liked and wish we had a little more of. Hopefully she writes a spin-off with them. They were awesome!

I also found the story to be a bit predictable. Everything I had hoped would happen did, but I predicted it all and it sort of took from the excitement.

In the end, I loved the ending. I love how the author didn't change the chemistry and emotions that Bishop and Ivy had/felt towards one another. It has a perfect HEA.

4 Stars!
