Monday Reviews - Rebels by Jill Williamson

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing Rebels by Jill Williamson. I received this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange of an honest review.

Before I get to the review, a quick synopsis.


In this third book in the series of fantasy/dystopian novels from award-winning author Jill Williamson, three teens must try to hold on to their values amidst the subjugation and lies of the government.

In this final novel of the Safe Lands series by Jill Williamson, Mason and Omar discover the true meaning of Liberation-a secret the Safe Lands have long kept from their people-but find they are trapped in the low lands with this crucial information. Meanwhile, Levi is forced to turn his attention elsewhere when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and becomes the Safe Land's new queen. His only choice to save her may be to take up the role of undercover vigilante that Omar began, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will that be enough to expose the Safe Land's lies and bring freedom to the people? And will they even want it if it comes?





Overall, I enjoyed this trilogy and this final book was no different. It is Christian fiction, and some of those views and values did come out throughout this series, but it wasn't in-your-face or shoved down your throat. 

It was a very well done dystopian story with a lot of gritty topics. There's love, hate, betrayal, but also more mature topics, like forced in-vitro pregnancies and drug and alcohol abuse. I would definitely say this is for the older YA readers who can handle that sort of thing.

I think that it was a very good conclusion to a very good trilogy. I gave Rebels by Jill Williamson a 4/5 stars on Goodreads.
