Austin Valley appears as it always has, but Em Fuller knows that appearances aren’t what they seem. She knows under the surface, that cracks are starting to form in this seemingly well-manicured society. She’s responsible for creating these cracks and for planting a slow dissension among many of the residents of this once happy city. Broken in a way Em never thought possible, she turns into a well-calculated, strategic leader. With the help of the brightest minds in Austin Valley, Em begins building an army whose only purpose is to protect the population of Austin Valley from their President, Victor Vider. Em firmly believes the success of her army is inevitable, that is until a new blow strikes her heart and she questions whether she has the tenacity to go on.
*WARNING* This review will contain spoilers from the previous books in the series.
Warriors picks up a few months after Rebels. Em is still trying to lead the rebellion whilst coming to terms with Rogue’s death. Things are moving along quickly. Working with the trusted doctor, Parker, her uncle, Ren, Nona, and Zack, Em is convincing as many kids as possible to avoid conversion to Middlings. If they choose to remain Rebels, Parker will inject them with a harmless fluid, and eventually they will finally receive their gift.
Em is working non-stop, forcing herself to her very limit. Zack and Nona are concerned with how much she is taking upon herself, but she is determined to fight the battle herself and Rogue started, and finally win this war.
This is the final book in The Reverians series, so I had high expectations, and I was not disappointed. Em was on strong form throughout this story, doing everything within her power to bring Vider down. I love how much she has developed over the series, and you get to really see how far she’s come in this final instalment.
I’m not going to lie, I desperately missed Rogue. He was such a huge part of the first two books that I got so used to him being there, with all his wit and charm. It made me resent Zack a little when he had to step up and do more, because even though he wasn’t, I felt like he was replacing Rogue.
However, this book did change my opinion on Zack. He got himself into a serious situation with
Em’s sister, Dee, and how he dealt with it and resolved it made me admire his character. He proved how much he truly cares for Em, and was willing to do anything whilst fighting at her side.
The final few chapters had me on edge, desperate to know how things would play out. Em’s final showdown with Vider did not disappoint, and I adored the comeuppance that Em had in store for him. It was perfectly genius.
The epilogue for this story was beautiful, wrapping up the series brilliantly. There is a scene with a tree (and that’s all I’ll say, because spoilers), that was seriously emotional, and a perfect goodbye to the characters. They’ve offered me a little bit of everything; heart-stopping action, a gripping rebellion, and breath-taking romance. I’ve loved joining them on their journey for justice. I’m so thankful to Sarah for once again sharing her awesome stories with me!
