Revolutionary (Anomaly, #3)Revolutionary by Krista McGee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
★: Didn't Like it
★★: It was Ok
★★★: Liked it
★★★★: Really liked it
★★★★★: It was amazing

Suggested Age:12+ Genre: Dystopian, Christian Fiction

This series is really good and I think this book is the best out of the series. I admit that I was a little disappointed in book two because of how similar it was to The Hunger Games but now that it’s all over with—I’m pleased with how things turned out.  If you’re a fan of dystopian but you’re looking for something that is a bit less—dark, then this would be a great series for you.   Christian themes are woven into this book seamlessly. It's a very good alternative for younger Folks who have been wanting to read The Hunger Games and the parents are worried about the content.

Thalli and Alex have been returned to the State, along with Kristy and there are a few twists that I really didn’t see coming. In a way they were a bit cliché and I almost groaned over it but once I got over that—I was happy with everything.

I did tire of the love triangle between Alex and Berk. It’s not a major part of the story but it was just enough that it aggravated me and made me think it should have either been more dramatic or possibly not introduced at all. Love triangles are just so overdone.

In this book, we really see what a reprobate that Dr. Loudin has become and what he has planned for the remaining survivors above ground.  This guy honestly was just a megalomaniac.  At first it seemed that he had a real plan and purpose (though misguided) and then it basically just turned out that he was simply obsessed with control and power.  I did feel that the book took a turn into demonizing this character that they missed fulfilling a solid character building for everyone else as well as a chance to really outline the revolution.

Overall, this was the best book out of the series and I enjoyed the series well enough. I just feel that it could have used a little bit of polishing up around the edges.
