A Revisionary rewrites the rules. A Rogue breaks them. Which one is she?

Nineteen-year-old Portia Abernathy accepts her Revisionary draft to the Crystal Globe with one goal: earn a Dome seat so she can amend the satellite rules and rescue her brother. Her plan derails when Head Gage Eliab brands her as a suspect in a campus Rogue attack, and in a quest to clear her name, she questions if the vigilante Brotherhood responsible might be fighting for a cause greater than itself, a cause championed by the last civilization.

About the Book

The Revolutionary by Kristen Hogrefe

Title: The Revolutionary: Liberate the Captives

Author: Kristen Hogrefe

Genre: Young Adult, Action, Adventure

Release Date: March, 2018

Freedom costs more than Portia wants to pay, but revolutions run on sacrifice … and blood.

Three months a satellite prisoner, Portia wonders if the Brotherhood has left her to die—until she plunges into the domain of an underground smuggler contacted by her brother.

There, she learns that her enemies want the Dome to approve mass satellite executions. No one knows why. Worse, they’re using her friend Luther, now a Court Citizen intern, to sign the short-term orders. She desperately wants to confide in Luther, but can she still trust him with the company he keeps?

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read Again

Top Ten Tuesdays

Hello and welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl!

Today’s topic is about books that I loved but will never re-read again. This is probably a bad thing to say as a reader, but I almost never re-read books. I always keep the books I love on the shelf because I love looking at them, running my fingers along the cover, and looking back on fond memories with hopes that I will return to them again. There are so many books out there in the world and so little time so I never manage to re-read them. Well, sometimes I do if it’s an absolute favorite and I’m in one of those awful reading slumps. So I thought for today’s topic that I would mostly focus on favorite childhood books that I loved, but now as an adult, unless I end up getting married and having kids, will probably never re-visit again.
