Book Review- The Revealed

I finished reading The Revealed by Jessica Hickam last night for the BookSparks Summer Reading Blog Tour.

About the Book:

Lily Atwood lives in what used to be called Washington, D.C. Her father is one of the most powerful men in
the world, having been a vital part of rebuilding and reuniting humanity after the war that killed over five billion people. Now he’s running to be one of its leaders.

But in the rediscovered peace on Earth, a new enemy has risen. They call themselves the Revealed – a powerful underground organization that has been kidnapping 18 year olds across the globe without reservation. No one knows why they are kidnapping these teens, but it’s clear something is different about these people. They can set fires with a snap of their fingers and create a wind strong enough to barrel over a tree with a flick of their wrist. No one has been able to stop them, and they have targeted Lily as their next victim.

But Lily has waited too long to break free from her father’s shadow to let some rebel organization just ruin everything. Not without a fight.

I wasn't too sure what this book was going to be about when I first started reading it, but I was quickly engaged in it.  The writing drew me in and I was so intrigued with figuring out what The Revealed was.  I told a friend that it's not often that I have no clue what was going to happen, but that was the case for this book and I quite liked it!

The main characters were great.  I loved that Lily didn't play princess just because her father was running for President.  She was completely her own person.  And Kai.  I liked him and was/am hoping that things will work out for them.  Rory was a great sidekick and best friend.  She completely surprised me too!

I found myself not wanting to put the book down and I love that feeling!  I don't see anything that shows that there will be a sequel but I sure hope there is going to be one!  There is so much more that I want to know about Lily, Kai, and Rory and The Revealed!

**updated to add that The Revealed is the first book in a trilogy.  Woohoo!

I gave this book a rating of 4/5.

*FTC Disclosure: I was given this book for free for an honest review as part of the BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge Book Tour.
