Oct 23, 2011 Shelly Crane added it  ·  (Review from the author)
Originally.....Collide was way WAY longer, almost 500 pages when I finished. So I cut it shorter and added it to the beginning of Uprising (Hence the part 1 and part 2) I loved writing this book as much as the first because I got to add some different POV's and you really get into the meat of the story behind the Lighters and what may come to help aid Sherry's little family in ending them. The addition of one person in particular was a blast to write (If you've read it I think you know who I'm r...more

Lighters are still in charge, Keepers are still the enemy and Specials are still coming to terms with their gifts.The world is going to hell in a hand basket and Sherry and her family are just trying to survive. At the beginning things get moving right away, bringing in new characters and new problems. With the new additions to the family, relationships will be tested, and lives forever changed.

Of course I am still in love with Merrick...my favorite Keeper! And you won't beable to resist new boy...more

Alright so I just finished book 2 of this series and I don't really know what to say. On one hand, I really like this story. On the other, similar to book 1, there were details that distracted me from the story. As usual I'll start with the positives. The story itself did get better like I'd hoped. There is more action, we get to see some darker sides of the characters, and there are some pretty unpredictable twists. We get to see the story from some new perspectives and that made Cain my new fa...more

Warning: This book is CALIENTE! Hot... Hot... Hot...

My Cover Thoughts: I love the new cover! Congrats Shelly for the new art work. Four hearts representing the four people she loves the most. You’ll have to read the book in order to find out who they are.

My Thoughts/Review: This book picks up where the last one left off. Sherry and Merrick are now a couple. Danny is safe for now but there is so much that has happened. They have had to move around just to survive and some of the people they are w...more

It pains me that I absolutely hated this book. I FORCED myself to finish this...and many times I was going to just give up on it. The only reason why I did not is that I read not one, but THREE of Alyson Noel's books. And this one was no where near as bad as those.
But I'm sorry but the love star, as I am calling it, was just too much for me. Why is everyone in love with Sherry? It is terrible. Not interesting, but actually extremely annoying. And she cries ALL THE TIME! Then Merrick. So unreali...more

oh thank goodness Catalyst is already out! I would have died if I would have had to wait!!!

March??? MARCH?!!! how am I supposed to wait FIVE MONTHS! *sniffle sniffle*
seriously you do not understand how good this book is! (Well if you've read it you do and should so come talk to me) but the rest of you! Gah you are missing the awesomeness! The amazing epic awesomeness!
I dont even like apocalyptic books and I am in love! No one but Shelly Crane could pull this off in such a way that I could be so thoroughly in love with a book in a genre I usually dislike! So if you're a fan of apocalyp...more

Uprising continues with Shelly and Merrick's love story that began in the apocolypic Collide. The chemistry is explosive and draws the reader into the relationships that build among the rebels. This book opens as the resistance has built an expanding underground bunker under a convenience store. It is the perfect hideout outside of town and provides much needed shelter for the group. Throughout the book, the group continues to grow in numbers as they seek out other Keepers and Specials who need...more

Oh no! At the end of this book, the second in the Significance Collide series, we find protagonist Maggie Sherry captured by the enemy. No joke, I honestly feel that this book mirrors the Significance series just as much as the first one. However, this time we got to see in multiple points of view which was definitely a nice change of pace. The first half was just like the first...Shelly and Merrick alternating their insecurities and obsession with each other. The latter half was much more inter...more

An uprising is coming, it was bound to happen. While many are falling, who everyone really is begins to show. While the group of people living underground begins to grow, there is no way of really knowing who's side everyone is on. It's all a matter of who you trust.

Even while Sherry and Merrick gather people to join them, the Lighters' army is growing- and any idea of hope is dwindling down. Should they fight, or live the best they can quietly? Can they live though either?

While I am usually n...more

Wow! I'm still completely hooked! This book will definitely keep you on your toes! You never know what to expect. I thought I might have a heart attack a few times! But it's all balanced beautifully with the growing family of misfits who are learning to love & trust more than they could have ever expected. It's amazing the strengths you can find inside yourself when faced with disaster and that's what they are all learning along the way. Sherry & Merrick continue to amaze me with their a...more

This was a great read. I was a little annoyed when Merrick was fighting with Sherry and I was like how could he not believe her, then the cliff hanger at the end. I just wish the third book was coming out sooner I can't wait that long please hurry lol. Shelly Crane is one of my favorite authors, I look forward to reading more of her books especially Devour (her new series) when that is released next month. I would definitely recommend reading this series, you won't be disappointed at all.

What overcomes an alien invasion and the disappearance of the moon? It's the worldwide answer that everyone knows (well, at least should know) it is love. That is right. With true love you could get through anything. Cliché I know. But when you start reading this series you'll know what I mean. I love this book with all of my heart.
Darcy
I love the way Shelly Crane writes. What she writes are believable. You feel like you are there in the book, and you know these people personally. She leaves this book with a great cliffhanger....now I must wait for the next one to come out. I highly recommend anything that Shelly writes!
Melissa
Oh boy, this book was so goood! Plenty of action, love, and drama...I just love the cast of characters involved, as they each bring something different to the story. I can't wait for the next book in the series! This was just excellent!
Nicole
Great sequel!!! I love how the other characters were used more than just Merrick and Sherry. I love them together, but it was nice to see the story told through others eyes. Can't wait to read the third one!
Nanette Bradford
ok so I'm reading this book now and I love how much action there is. I'm constantly going back and forth with all the characters and I love it all. it has so much passion and I love a story that gets me worked up.
Gloria Green
I always hate it when I finish a good book, no exception here. I loved the characters. This is the first series with a paranormal feel that I've read and i really loved it.I can't wait for the next book in the series.
Joanna
This series is fantastic! The storyline is unique and fast-paced and I just love the characters!! Thank you Shelly Crane for another awesome book! Seriously can not wait to read the next one!!
Vanessa
Non stop action, heart-melting romance and a cliffhanger end left me wanting the next book very badly.
March 2012 seems to be to far away...

Just when I thought the Collide series couldn't get any better along came Uprising!! Geez...moving quickly on to Catalyst! Gotta go!!

I really love this author. I enjoyed the characters and storylines. I did feel that at times there were a few to many characters. Some are thrown in and then not used for awhile, so when they're mentioned later I have to stop and remember who's keeper or special or just plain human and who they showed up with. That was a little confusing at times. I didn't like that Sherry seemed like a den mother in this book. She seemed more passive in this book. I like the heroine to be strong...more

I loveeee this series specially Merrick!!
James Scouller
I enjoyed this book but only really for the characters and the creativity of the story. The writing is pretty bad (horrible grammar and spelling mistakes), and a lot of the book is packed with filler scenes where there isn't much happening. I still enjoyed this book though as I was after something laid back and easy to read. This book is definitely that, and the story is pretty sweet - no ridiculously frustrating drama for long periods of the story.
I'll continue on to read Catalyst, the next bo...more

Uprising starts right where Collide finished. It kept the pace of the book and the fluid writing style. We are immediately introduced to more new characters - these novels have an insane amount of characters. I finished Collide, immediately started Uprising and had already forgotten or got confused with some of the names. You never know if the characters are on the bad side, the good side or just plain nuts. But even though there are a lot of them, in this book I got a better glimpse of some of...more

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the character of Cain. I also loved getting more character development with all the supporting characters(Jeff,Ryan,Lillian,etc...). The character of Lily was a welcome addition. The love story was great and even better than the first book in this series. I'm a sucker for romance and this one gives you loads of it with several different couples. The editing was also a LOT better. There were still some mistakes but not nearly as distracting as the ones in Colli...more

Well, I am hooked on this series! I couldn't stop reading these books if I wanted to ....I need resolution!! In a world that is in chaos due to the Lighters compelling Humans to believe their story that keepers and rebellious humans are the problem and the Lighters are the salvation of the planet, our growing band of Keepers and their charges, continue to survive with minimal loss of life. In the first book, Collide, a baby was born in their midst and a three year old girl was rescued from abusi...more

Sherry,Merrick and co are still hiding and building up their "good people" family. Piper is tilllusting after Merrick which provides a lot of attention as well as stuff to do with Cain... kinda vague but i dont want to spoil it.
Lily is still really sweet and adorable, ditto with Calvin. Still not much on the alien-y side of things which is good i think because the romances,bonds and friendships which accompany it are fabulous.
Quite a few characters now though quite a few have died :o( i really a...more

Uprising continues right where Collide ended. The Lighters are still in charge, Keepers are still the enemy and Specials are still coming to terms with their gifts. The "family" is getting bigger with the edition of some new people. We get different point of views in Uprising and I love that, so we can see what other characters feel and what their stories are. My favourite character is still Merrick, of course. I also really like Jeff, and Cain is nice but the fact that he's in love with Sherry...more

“And you, trying to look all innocent walking in here. You’re a real conch at this, aren’t ya?”
“Did you just insult me, Miguel?” Sherry asked, putting her hands on her hips but she looked on the verge of laughing.
“No, love, it means smart.” He grinned at her.”
