Glistening Rebellion

Glistening Rebellion - Jill  Cooper I want to thank the author for providing me a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.

Nearly a year ago I was given the opportunity to read the first book in this series and fell totally for it. Glistening Haven was and still is a story that doesn’t have anything to match it. This book continues that story, and once again I was blown away by the writing, the story and the characters.

This is not a book you can pick up without reading the first one. There are so many different series and trilogy’s out there right now, but this is a story that can’t be put into just one book. All your favorite characters are back. Jenna has found love but is also dealing with uncertainty in a life changing way and finds herself exactly like those she had once been trying hard not be like. Jake is trying to make things better for the glistening but another glistening keeps undermining him and making changes that makes the good things go bad.

This world of humans and glistenings is that of turmoil, heartache, heartbreak, love, hope and disaster. As you feel a door opening, something comes along and slams it shut. The story is fast paced and will keep you glued to your seat. You will burn your dinner, and that’s if you remember to eat at all. By the end of the book everything has been turned on end. The rebellion has succeeded in some ways and faltered in others. This book will not leave you disappointed. I look forward to what the 3rd brings.
