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 be able to resist new bo

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

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

ORIGINAL REVIEW: 5 stars -- Yeah, completely sucked in to this series... I think I know why people may have found it boring (or the first book or whatever)....it's b/c you actually get to read some happy time stuff...I LOVE that. It's not just conflict and craziness, but the occasional chapter of feel good love stuff. It was very satisfying.... Only thing that made me want to dock it a half star was the explanation for the loss of the light of the moon....that was terrible. Seriously. I don't kn ...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

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.

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!

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!

All great things come in twos……

Yet again Shelly Crane has written a sequel that is enthralling and excellent to the point at which I cannot wait another second to pick up the next book. Of course, I’m in the car while I am writing this so I can’t. The introduction and reappearance of new characters adds to the growth and excitement of the Collide series. Shelly Crane gets you emotionally invested the characters, making Uprising anot

I read the first book in this series last year and I always said to myself that I was eventually going to read the rest of the series so I sat down one weekend and did just that! I loved Collide so I was really looking forward to reading the next book! The plot of this book was similar to Collide in a way as it continues on from where it left off so they sort of face the same problem and have the same dilemmas but I was sort of proven wrong at times in the book as the characters faced some new c ...more

Seriously, this book was great. Words can't explain how outstanding this book was. With most series you read it seems that the farther into the books they become uninteresting and not as intriguing as the first books but this is complete opposite. There were moments that I started screaming at the book and wanted one character to get killed off *cough* Piper *cough*. Honestly, I think this book is better than the first because there was more ac

The survival of the human race is still being threatened by the existence of the Lighters and the Keepers are still cast as the evil doers. Sherry and Merrick are still hopelessly in love. Life in the bunker has become it's own little soap opera, with all the blossoming romances, flirting, relationship spats, and mix ups. There was a bit of drama in the book that totally spiced things up, sadly it was at the expense of Sherry and Merrick it had me doing a double take and re-reading some pages, I ...more
