Something is brewing. Like the far off rumble of a train in the distance, a rebellion is stirring. A cry for change arises in the midst of a traditional monarchy, where King Addison has inherited the throne. Who are the underground troublemakers? What is stirring their defiant banner and demand for change? Find out in The Rebellion! (The Tales of Tarsurella #2)
Vanessa Bennett lands her dream job working at the Palace in Tarsurella. She struggles to balance everything on her plate: life in a new country, stressful deadlines, crabby co-workers, college classes at the local University, and blossoming feelings of romantic adoration toward her boss–King Addison. Keeping up with her To-Do list, while trying to earn respect in Addison’s male-dominated administration, presents its challenges. Nevertheless, she can’t help but fight a reoccurring thought and the excitement rising with it: is Addison interested in her?
Addison is adjusting to his new role as King. Rumors of a rebellious uprising among the youth in Tarsurella intensifies, as acts of violence and protest break out across the city. Addison is determined to uncover the hidden instigator who fearlessly blogs democracy-driven ideals with a secretive pen name. Will Addison discover and expose the fiery rebellion leader? Or will his efforts fail to stop the rebellious thoughts spreading like wildfire, causing a heartbreaking rift in his divided nation?
Genre: Christian Fiction.
My Rating: 4 and 1/2 Stars, because of the girls attitudes about boys.
Recommendation: 16 and up because of the girls attitudes about boys, but otherwise I loved The Rebellion.
My favorite character is: Man, there are so many and I don’t know who is my favorite character is so I guess their all my favorites.
Vanessa is working for King Addison to help the homeless in Tarsurella, she is determined and won’t let anyone stop her. I like her relationship with Addison they are sweet, their differences sometimes come between them, but they work through them. Vanessa is a kind and caring girl not letting others stop her from helping people.
My Verse for Vanessa is Proverbs 31:26
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. King James Version (KJV).
Addison is running a upset country, while keeping his family safe, courting Vanessa and through it all he is strong, trusting in God. I like how he treats Asher when he comes home.
My Verse for Addison is Psalms 21:7
For the king trusteth in the Lord, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. King James Version (KJV).
My thoughts, Miss Jarmusch is an AMAZING writer!!! I love The Tales of Tarsurella. Her stories are great! The only thing I don’t like is how the girls sometimes act towards boys, but their attitudes only take away ½ a star. Otherwise, I love her books! There’s great action. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. It is the best book I’ve read this year.
I received an ARC of the Rebellion from the author in exchange for my honest review and the thoughts are my own.
