Me Before Reading

I was so excited to read this because its predecessor was really awesome. It’s ending completely intense and I expected the exact same beginning for this third installment.

Me Beginning Reading till mid reading

What happened to my snarky Cassie? Where is she? I guess constant struggle, hunger and war could zap the life out of a person. That’s probably the most logical explanation I could think of. I don’t care though. I just want her back!

God has definitely blessed Summer with a truly great gift for storytelling! Review to come for release day! A-W-E-S-O-M-E

From June last year, I have been hooked as Cassidy Harts’s life in this dystopian, war torn world, unfolded before me. I think it's safe to say the Collapse Series is my new obsession. It is so very easy for me to just start gushing about everything I love about it, but I fear no amount of words would be able to do that. I find myself thinking about this series even when I’m n

Still flying through these books in a matter of hours still excited and enthralled by this story. Over the last 3 installments in the Collapse series you have seen Cassidy go from naive young girl just trying to survive, to a solider willing to fight for her life and those of the people she cares about, to finally in State of Rebellion a leader in her own right marching her troops forward holding out hope when all seems lost. And as intriguing as I have found her transformation, I still find mys ...more

*I’d like to thank the author for providing an ARC of this book, in exchange for my honest review.*

As the Collapse series is one of my favorite ongoing dystopian stories, I am always excited when a new book is out. I love Cassidy, Chris, and the world in which they live. I assumed wrongly that this book would be the last in the series, but I still wasn’t disappointed in the events that took place in this installment.

After the ending in book two, I couldn’t wait to see what would happen to Cas

*I received an advanced copy from the author in exchange for an honest review

This book, much like its predecessors, is a fast-paced and gripping story. We catch up with Cassidy and Chris, who are really genuinely likable characters. The thing that makes Cassie so relatable is that when she is in the middle of some scary and potentially life-ending situations, she is both brave and terrified. In a lot of books in this genre, the female protagonist is brave, but doesn't show those signs of fear, o

State of Rebellion was one of my most highly anticipated books of 2014.

This book starts off right where the second book left off. My favorites, Cassidy and Chris, are back and hoping to once and for all defeat Omega. Cassidy has grown so much from the first book to this one. She is definitely one of my favorite heroines and she proved it in this book. She is no longer a naive, just out of high school girl. She is

I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

State of Rebellion is the third book in the Collapse Series. You’ll definitely want to pick up the first two books in the series before you dive into this novel. State of Rebellion is not however the final book, as State of Rebellion ends on a cliffhanger and has the reader asking more questions than those answered. I will say that some characters we’ve grown to love will die and others lives are in jeopardy. In a dystopian
This has turned to be an all out world. We still have no idea who is behind it but we get closer and closer to an idea. Harry is still pooping up and I am like dude that will be Cassie"s downfall her compassion. People are dying left and right and we still see no end in sight. Cassie has finally grown her woman balls which I am excited about because she can seriously kick ass.

I cannot wait for the next installment. This is really getting intense and I am so overwhelmed with anxiety...

Yep, didn't take me long to get through this one either. With the fast pace, the twists and turns, the EVERYTHING...I couldn't put the book down. Actually, since I started State of Rebellion immediately after finishing State of Chaos I completely forgot that I was on the third book in the series! I love Cassidy and Chris and everyone else for that matter. The Freedom Fighters are a force to be reckoned with!
State of suspense!

That's how this book leaves you! As the country collapses around them, Cassidy and Chris team their militia with a larger force to fight against Omega's attempt to take over the US. But, someone is not playing fair, leaving them to fight for their lives without support. Fast paced, exciting, can't wait for #4!

Loved this series

Not sure why some have given negative reviews to this series, but I love it! It is fiction, if I want reality I just go to work. These stories are non-stop, hold your breath, enjoy a good read. I love Cassidy's very real and humorous way of seeing life. Ordering #4 right now.

This book was just as good as the other two. Hate that the end is a cliff hanger because I'm anxious to find out what happened to Chris! I am SO excited to read the fourth book.

First posted at Words Fueled by Love.

It's not often I find a complete series that I have to binge read it all because it's THAT good and I can't read anything else until I get this story and it's characters out of my head. That's what the Collapse series has been for me. It's so well written that the pages just flow by and the action is nonstop so you are quickly turning each page eagerly waiting to see how the characters survive through each situation thrown at them.

I'm flying through these books entirely too quickly. They seem so short!

This was much better than it's predecessor, but not quite as good as Book #1. Summer Lane writes action scenes like a pro. You could cut the tension with a knife! The world-building is great, too. We get a really clear picture of how the new California looks, and what the trenches are like.

The character development is still lacking here, though. The characters are developing, but we're just not seeing the process. The whole

I received an ARC from the author, but unfortunately I was not able to finish before the release. I apologize for that.

State of Rebellion held my attention throughout the story which makes any read good. But the story line of this book in the series seemed to flow along without a lot of twists and turns. The story and character arcs were relatively flat, in my opinion. I wanted more highs and lows.

The plot had a lot of action which will keep readers glued to the book.

The series will continue. I

This series just continues on with great characters, a really good story line, and really easy to read. Summer Lane has done a fantastic job of writing a series that is fun to read, easy to read, and after each book, you just want the next one. Each time the series develops a little more and so have the characters. It hasn't stalled, the characters haven't grown stagnant, it continues to develop and grow.
Along the way, Cassidy is still a great character and highly amusing.

“At last, somebody in line steps forward. “I can commit,” he says. He’s a tall, lean young man with a rifle slung over his back.
“What’s your name?” Chris asks.
“Andrew,” he replies. “And I’m in.”
Chris nods. A few other guys step forward and, after a few moments, the entire crowd of ex-POWs takes one step, signifying their decision. My chest swells with pride – pride for Chris’s leadership, pride for the people willing to give their lives to take down Omega.
It’s a rush.”
“I'm not scared," I say.
I'm such a liar.”
