Whoa, that ending was TOTUREEEE!!!

It left me feeling like this...


I enjoyed REBELLION more then I did EXTRACTION. Though it did have it's flaws and slow parts, but nevertheless, it was a fantastic addition to the EXTRACTION series!!


That ending left me grasping for the final Showdown...

REBELLION was an intensely thrilling, adventure-filled dystopia, that kept me engaged and on my toes until the very last page! It was a wonderful follow up to EXTRACTION, that had terrifying surpris

I read Extraction last year and while I wasn't completely in love with the book because it had a plot line that is so redundant in YA, I was impressed by Stephanie Diaz' writing and I knew that she was one of those authors who would undoubtedly improve with time. So, I picked up Rebellion with a lot of excitement, and dang, was this book great!

From the moment I opened my copy of Rebellion, I was hooked. This is a book that does not suffer from any kind of second book syndrome. It was intense, ac

I want to thank St. Martin's Griffin for providing me with a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.

If you haven't read the first book in this series, STOP HERE. I cannot promise there will not be spoilers from the first book. As a matter of fact, I can pretty much guarantee there will be.

So I was a HUGE fan of the first book in this series, “Extraction”, because for me it had everything you want from a YA Dystopian tale but managed to avoid so many of the cliches. It was just a thoroughly enjoyable read with some great characters and an intriguing and wonderfully addictive plot.

With “Rebellion” Ms Diaz has upped the ante quite substantially – after the adrenalin rush of battle at the end of Book One we find Clem and Logan hiding on the surface and preparing for the bigger battle

“We can’t forget those who are still imprisoned in the work camps, especially now that there’s acid descending on them from the sky. They already lived in fear of death, and now they have one more way to die.

They deserve freedom. But even if the scouts return and bring us news so we can launch an attack, it will take a lot more than a single battle to liberate everyone in the camps.

Our uprising has barely begun.”

'Rebellion' is the action packed second book in a young adult dystopian series. The book picks up right where the first left off - the rebellion has officially begun.

The war is far from over, and the Commander has every intention of winning - no matter what the cost. When Clementine and Logan team up against the Commander and against time - the

REBELLION is the action-packed, suspenseful, and totally epic second book in Stephanie Diaz’s amazing and unputdownable series set on a planet being threatened from without by the moon’s deadly acid and from within by a leader who demands complete subservience and who sees those not Promising as disposable. It is an electrifying and riveting sequel that will keep readers on edge as they follow the rebels and learn whether their uprising is enough to stop the Commander from going through with the ...more

Right off the heels of finishing Extraction I jumped into Rebellion and finished it in about two days. The two books were similar in terms of quality but Rebellion was the one I enjoyed more, especially with that unexpected cliffhanger ending.

World-building and settings in Rebellion were more or less on par with Extraction but this time we get to see the base of the rebels along with places like

Rebellion by Stephanie Diaz is book two in the Extraction series and I admit the second I saw this up on Netgalley, I requested it. I loved book one and couldn’t wait to see where Diaz was going to take these characters based on how that book ended.

Rebellion picks up shortly after book one ends. Clementine, Logan, and the other rebels are hiding from Commander Charlie while he continues to look for a way to defeat them and reignite the war with Marden.

An uprising has begun, and one girl is faced with an impossible task; to save those she loves, she has to lose herself. The sequel to Extraction, this book picks up seven days after Clementine and her boyfriend Logan escaped to the rebel's base, and are living in hiding as they plan their next strike.

I thought Rebellion was a good sequel to Extraction. I no longer felt like I was constantly comparing it to other YA series and it felt like the story was coming into its own more. Sometimes, with sequels I feel like they just are extensions of the first book and don’t have their own Story. However, with Rebellion I do feel like it stands well on its own.

One thing I wish we could have seen more of was secondary character development. Clementine definitely has gr

REBELLION starts a week after EXTRACTION ends. Clementine keeps flashing back to Oliver's death and the other terrible things she's been through. Her mind is still sharp, but she's not exactly up to taking part in space battles.

But time is ticking down for the rebels to foil Commander Charlie's plans, and she and her boyfriend Logan go undercover in a work camp while the other rebels infiltrate other places. Clementine's mission: sow dissent and prevent the workers from being injected with a mi

In Rebellion, Clementine must try to stop Commander Charlie's plans to destroy the alien threat at the cost of thousands of lives. She joins the rebels but soon learns there is nowhere she can hide from Charlie and his own plans for her.

This book is very much in the style of the first and is just a really fun ride. Clementine is as ever fiesty and cunning and always planning to thwart Charlie and the core. And yet there is much realism here.. Clementine doesn't always have perfect luck and she e

*4.5 stars. I never know whether I should leave that four or update it to five...

First I'll being with a few of the rather small issues:
The book began slow.

I still haven't become overly attached to Logan as a character, except through Clementine's eyes.

In that same vein, I don't think there was over much character development.

Now, onto the good parts. There wasn't much character development for only one reason, I think. After the beginning, the book moved fast. The story continuously changed a

This continues on from where the first book left off. Clementine joins a rebel group, and the Alliance devises a strategy to put its members undercover to unravel Commander Charlie's plan from the inside. But Commander Charlie may no longer be their biggest threat...

This was a great follow on from the first book. Shocker twists, high stakes, real danger, and nowhere to hide. Clementine isn't sure who to trust, and neither are we. After an explosive ending I'm glad I have the third and final book

This was a pretty good book, the plot moves quickly, and the characters are fun. I can’t wait to read the third one and see where everything goes. There’s so much intrigue and betrayal, and you’re never really truly sure who’s good and who’s bad, who's working of their own free will and who’s being controlled, which makes it very interesting. The romance isn’t overpowering which is always nice.

I really like this series. The only problem is that there is a long list of similarities between this, The Hunger Games, and Divergent. I could honestly list similarities for hours, but I won't bore you with all of them. My "favorites" are how much Sam resembles Eric and how both take a mind control serum that the main character just happens to be immune to. What stopped me from giving this book 2 stars is how strong Clem, the main character is. She is probably the least Mary Sue, Bella characte ...more

What a great sequel! I was looking forward to seeing the continuation of Clementine's journey as she went into hiding to prepare for the war ahead with Commander Charlie and seeing her continue to grow in each and every chapter following that was worth the read.

In the beginning, Clementine is still very nervous about facing Charlie, so much so that she has panic attacks at the slightest trigger of a memory involving him. She's reeling after the death of Oliver and has Charlie to think about alo

As with other sequels, I've decided to write a mini review for Rebellion, where I just share some of my notes.

To say that I had a hard time at the start of Rebellion would be an understatement. I thought that I remembered everything from Extraction, but turns out that my memory had big holes in it. Half of the things that happened, were completely erased from my mind.

Rebellion is about, well, a rebellion. Clementine and a small group of rebels are plotting how to undermine Commander Charlie’s plans and save the rest of the people. First 40% of Rebellion are a large introduction with a big focus on how e

Rebellion is the sequel to Extraction, which is definitely a great dystopian/sci-fi YA book to get on your reading list! As with most dystopian and sci-fi books, there’s plenty of detailed settings and descriptions used to set the tone in the first book. If you don’t read Extraction first, you’ll be at sea with Rebellion.

That said, Rebellion is a solid follow-up to Extraction. At the beginning of Extraction, Clementine is one of the chosen few who gets to be taken to the Earth’s Core to live, sa

I liked Extraction, though I thought it had some room for improvement. The world was interesting, the pace fast, and the main character, Clementine, fierce. And Rebellion was better. In this sequel, we see more of the world of Kiel and more of Clementine's willingness to sacrifice herself to save those she loves.

While Clementine is more introspective in this book, that's expected after what she's done and let happen in the first book. She is guilty over letting Oliver sacrifice
