Review: Revolution by Shelly Crane
In the fourth and final installment, everything is on the line. Merrick's life is in the balance and Lily is their only hope. Ellie and her new powers are miraculous, but also problematic; if she's with the bunker family, they won't be able to sense when the Lighters are there. There are many new members to the bunker and sparks will fly, and with the food shortage, they will all have plenty to deal with. Miguel is intrigued with Rylee, her past and her spunk. Ryan and Elli are barely scratching the surface of their relationship. Cain and Lillian will have to deal with Daniel, who has no qualms about showing his true feelings for her. And Sherry and Merrick…what will happen to this happenstance family who have worked so hard to come together? Can they all survive? Can they all withstand the new enemy that is right outside their door? Can they beat the Lighters, once and for all…
FAITH, LOVE, AND HAPPY ENDINGS are three of my favorite things about the Author Shelly Crane. I've learned from reading all of her books that I can trust her to always make my heart happy by the end on her stories.
This final installment in the Collide Series is bitter sweet. I've been anxious to find out what Merrick's fate would be but not so ready for the series to end. Shelly in her genius way gives us our most wanted answers in the first two chapters. There are so many things I loved about Revolution. One of my favorite parts is Lily playing dolls with Calvin. Her reference to Joy doll being "Piper, psycho Barbie" and telling the boy doll to "take that you sissy" made me laugh out loud. I LOVED the developing love story between Ryan and Ellie. I can't get them out of my head. It was too funny when Miguel walks in on Sherry and Merrick getting frisky. Miguel is still one of my fave characters and he finally gets a little love in this book which is another part (in the club) that just cracked me up. I also love the new character Chesser. There's so much action in this book as well as sweet and saucy moments. Shelly does not disappoint in giving each of the main characters an ending that will keep me happily ever after. Thanks to Shelly for making my heart swell with happiness for Merrick and Sherry.
