Series: The Blackcoat Rebellion #3
Genre: Teen Dystopian [ish]
Release Date: November 24, 2015
The Overview: Kitty Doe is a Blackcoat rebel and a former captive with a deadly connection to the most powerful and dangerous man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. Forced to masquerade as Daxton’s niece, Lila Hart, Kitty has helped the Blackcoats take back the prison known as Elsewhere. But Daxton has no intention of ceding his position of privilege—or letting Kitty expose his own masquerade. Not in these United States, where each person’s rank means the difference between luxury and poverty, freedom and fear…and ultimately, between life and death. To defeat the corrupt government, Kitty must expose Daxton’s secret. Securing evidence will put others in jeopardy, including the boy she’s loved forever and an ally she barely trusts. For months, Kitty’s survival has hinged on playing a part. Now she must discover who she truly wants to be, and whether the new world she and the rebels are striving to create has a place in it for her after all.

I thoroughly enjoyed Pawn, the first book in this series, but never quite made it around to reading the sequel. Now that the third one is on the horizon, I might just hold off a little longer and then binge read all three (sounds like fun, doesn’t it?). Although the story lacks a believable society (and world building in general), I liked enough things about it that those deficiencies didn’t bother me. It’s a cool concept for a story, and I love the mild chess tie-ins that give these books their theme. I am genuinely excited to see where the story goes next!
What book are you waiting on?
I’ve always thought the covers of her books are good, and this one is no exception. Plus teh chess theme is kinda neat. This looks like a good serie…
I agree – it’s the covers that first sparked my interest. It’s definitely not the most robust thing I’ve ever read, but it was good for light entertainment. :-)
Yeeeees. I have only read PAWN, too, but I liked it enough! I think I’m going to have a binge-read of the series, too! Good pick!
Check out what I’m waiting on – plus your chance to win a 2016 YA Pre-Order (International!)
Yay! I’m really glad I’m not the only one ha ha. I’m hoping the next two are just as good as the first one… I’ve already invested in the hardcovers XD
