Shelves: dystopian, ya
I loved this book as much as the first, despite some issues I had with the ending.

This book takes place three years after the end of the first book. Annabelle is a mech, an elite female warrior who is charged with protecting the border, rounding up boys and enforcing regulations.
This book also lends more insight into the “Second American Civil War”.

As with the first book, this absolutely fascinates me. “When the Progressive Reunion seized power, men got suckered into supporting the Patriots; th

Annabelle has grown up in a world where females have weeded out the men and boys from their society and their lives. Her adopted mother, a Tenn-tucky state senator, still remembers the husband and son she sent into the Outlands to protect. Annabelle has grown up believing her brother George is a monstrosity of a boy.

This novel picks up three years after the ending of The Rebel Within (read my review here). Annabelle is still paired with Dara in the Mechanized Female Warriors, and still is tryin

For the nth time in my life, I read a book cover to cover, only to realise that it is NOT the first book in a series. I am banging my head on the desk right now. Seriously. No wonder chunks of the book makes zero sense to me.

Which brings me to the first thing I had wanted to point out before the penny dropped ─ nothing makes sense at all for the first half of the book. Unless you have read The Rebel Within, the first book in the series, before you jump into this one. I am not one of those people

Again, I'm not going to give a summary; others do that more effectively. Instead, I'd like to say that I enjoyed Lance Erlick's "Rebels Divided" much more than its prequel.
Erlick's action has tightened up, the speeches are more succinct and his characters are deeper and more developed. As well, he has included more sensory descriptions, which increased my enjoyment. With a more complex vocabulary, it also allowed the characters to become more mature.
Well done, Lance! I'm looking forward to comi

Nicely paced SF novel with more than a few twists to keep the reader wondering.

it's a future world after a second civil war. The story is concentrated between two sides. Tenn-Tucky, the merging of the two states where women control things and have driven most men out. The few left are virtually slave labor. Appalachia, concentrate in Biltmoor where it's mostly men.

As with most political groups, corruption reigns and what the regular folks want is not even considered.

In this environment comes two

Rebels Divided is the follow up to The Rebels Within. However, this book can definitely be a stand alone. What was most notable for me were the action scenes. I couldn't put the book down because of them.

Overall, the premise of the book is intriguing (would have loved to see more homosexual and heterosexual tendencies within both societies). The world building was fantastic, and I really enjoyed the characters and their development within the book.

I look forward to reading other works by Erlic

I have no idea wtf is going on in this YA Dystopian story. It doesn’t help that the writing is only so-so, the dialogue is stilted and for the love of all that's holy, I cannot stand when a character says something like, “We have to go! Now!” Then the other character is all, “Uh, who are you? Hey! You’re the enemy! Why should I go with you?” Then they argue for like ten hours when the danger is only seconds away. *rolls eyes* The nicest thing I can say is, this wo

Rebels Divided: Lance Erlick

The world has changed greatly after the Second American Civil War. As with all nations things happen that divide it and in this case splits it down the middle. As women had to fight for the right to vote, better jobs and to have the right to speak out in this new world, the Federal Union controls what happens in the country and those in charge are all females along with the aide of the Egg Fusion Fertilization and Female Mechanized Warriors. The males now have to flee

What I Liked: Annabelle has grown so much in between the two books and it shows. She acts much more mature than she did in the first book and she’s even become more cautious about how she is with her rebellious tendencies. Three year as a mech is a lot of time for her to grow, but she’s still the same Annabelle we knew in the first book with her attitude and stubbornness. She’s still even incredibly protective over Janine! She’s also more friendly with her mech sisters than she was in the first ...more

I have mixed emotions about this book. The first book was really good and I couldn't wait to start this one. I liked the book but there were things that really bothered me.

My first question: what happened to her undercover job at the police station? The first book ended with her not getting into Mechs because she was supposed to go undercover. It is never mentioned in RD and jumps three years and she has advanced in the Mech program. What happened?

The next question: when did Annabelle turn into

The Rebel Series by Lance Erlick is a curious examination of society after the Second World War which divides men and women into separate communities. Each with their own government, religion, morals and values.

What I Liked Most About the Series
The grey area. There are some obvious plus sides to a society made up of a single sex. And there are some obvious down sides. Erlick, through the characters, presents many of these views, but doesn’t push the reader in either direction.

Annabelle. She fits

This was a good read overall. It was a good story and plenty of action to keep the book moving along. They were very shocking plot twist that added the story as well. The characters were interesting and well developed. Annabelle was crazy annoying throughout the majority of the book. There were quite a few questions left unanswered. Such as what exactly happened to the documents they were looking for? I thought the ending could've been better as well but overall it was a good read.

Mr. Erlick makes the world of man against women very believable. The struggles of two types of people that have become alienated further by lack of exposure, different environments, and the propaganda of the greedy make this story full of conflict. I love this book. The characters are engaging and relatable. I read this from cover to cover.

A dystopian novel aimed at older teens. The premise was interesting, but the follow-through didn't seem to jibe with the behavior of the characters. The leads were believable and inconsistent, must like the average teenager. There is some graphic violence and sexual suggestiveness - particularly regarding same sex relationships - that may bother younger YA/Teen readers. ...more

It pledges Annabelle to the warlord to provide heirs, a ...more

Liked the book overall, it has an interesting take on the guys versus girls struggle and has plot twists which keep it interesting. Looking forward to reading the prequel and waiting for a sequel to hopefully come out.
