"You're always going to be afraid, even you learn to hide it. Fear is like a companion, a constant companion -- always there. But that's okay because fear can bring us together. Fear can bring you home. Fear makes companions of us all."

Heyo, readers!
Today, I've got another review for you! :)

The remnant of Glenrock has been scattered. But they are not beaten.

The Safe Lands have long kept the true meaning of Liberation secret from their people. But after being sentenced to Liberation themselves, Mason and Omar soon discover the truth.

Levi watched his brothers’ public sentencing and tries to hold out hope they are still alive, He is forced to focus his attention elsewhere, however, when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and made the Safe Lands’ newest Queen. His only choice to save Jemma may be to take up Omar’s old role of undercover vigilante, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will Levi’s new role be enough?

Meanwhile, Jemma’s sister, Shaylinn, is ready to give birth to the “Safe Lands’” children … but not even Ciddah is sure they can be delivered safely in the midst of a rebellion. And Mason must face the fact Omar’s illness could be fatal.

If they can all unite their efforts, together they may be able to expose the Safe Lands’ lies to the people. But if they fail, they will all surely die.

Rebels was brilliant, vibrant, profound, another good book from Jill Williamson.

Oh my. They were wonderful. Poignant in nearly every respect. Real. Character you could identify with, and ones I could definitely see as friends.

2. The story.
I could totally see this happening in America's future. A sign of good storytelling is believability. And Rebels definitely had believability. 

3. The cover
That cover is positively gorgeous. :)

4. The ending

1. Suggestive content
This book is not for those under at LEAST 14. I read it, but I'm a, uh... Rebel. :) 

2. It deals with content intended for older people
Yeah, as I said, 14+. 

All in all, and enjoyable, suspenseful read, and a good end to the Safe Lands Trilogy! :)

Bravo, Jill Williamson!
