Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty-forced marriages and murder plots-for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall's bord

Perffffffffffect. I honestly don't know how Engel do it. I can't wait for more from her.

You've seen right. This book is worth three stars. You ask what happened to 'DIS GON BE GUD?' (see below:the end of the review). I'll say you what happened: After waiting a whole year for the sequel, I'm so frigging upset that the hype didnt deliver. THAT'S HAPPENED.

So abandon the hype train my friend and delete all of your hopes just like I did after 70%.

Bishop is a saint. And he deserves a cookie. And a golden medal. Actually, whomever deals with this bipolar chick called Ivy deserves an award

BISHOP!!!! OMG!!!! :D

Woow! What an amazing finale! From the begining to the end I loved it. I loved it because, finally Ivy found herself. She became such a strong girl. :) Bishop was amazing too, as always he did what he believed. And he always listened his heart as well... :)

I don’t want to give you spoilers but trust me, you’ll never regret for reading this books. You just have to meet Bishop one last time. And after that you're

“My father, in all his endless lessons, never spared a single second talking to me about how to survive beyond the fence. He never taught me how to start a fire or catch a small animal. I suppose he never considered the possibility that all his planning might come to nothing, that we might be caught, that he might need to give me some kind of alternative train
For every trial there has been an answering blessing, for every loss, something gained.

**Actual rating: 3.5/5 Being-Yourself Stars**

Again, apart from the gorgeous cover I can't stop tearing my eyes away from whenever I see it, the story picked up shortly after the ending of The Book of Ivy and brought us into Ivy's long journey of survival beyond the fence.

I’m not even telling you anything about this book other than if you haven’t started this series GO NOW. Check out my review of book 1 HERE – that will set the stage for book 2! All I could think when I turned the last page of book 1 was that I HAD to have book 2 immediately… There may have been some of this ..

After the devastating end of The Book of Ivy I didn’t think I would survive The Revolution of Ivy. I mean, I obviously wanted to read it but my god- Angel knows how to make a girl lose all hope and leave you a mess with just a few sentences. In order to remain a little of my dignity I decided to be cautious, refusing to be pulled back in and left heartbroken; I was not going to get attached. I failed miserably.

I’ve really enjoyed this duo! The first book was just swoon worthy and SUPER fun to read! *sigh* Bishop….

Ok if you’re looking for a clean good romance this I would recommend to anyone!

Book two is no different in wonderfulness than book one and I greatly appreciate that! We all fell in love with the story and the characters and the world building.

In this book we continue with the story after Ivy has been banished and she is out beyond the fence. Where she ha

*Spoilers for book 1 (The Book of Ivy) in the series.*


I wasn't sure WHAT to expect after The Book of Ivy ended with our poor Ivy exiled to outside the fence. I was 1) terrified of the gross and awful rapist guy 2) terrified of the gross and awful rapist guy. That storyline was gut-wrenching in the first book and I was 100% sure he would be back in the second book.

I wish I had a better review to write for this book because I adored the first book in this series, but The Revolution of Ivy--although not a complete disappointment--lacked in so many ways.

The Revolution of Ivy opens up where The Book of Ivy left off: with Ivy being cast out of the fence to fend for herself. And it ain't pretty folks. Beyond the safety of the gated town of Westfall lies desolate terrain, extreme weather conditions, wild predators, and other exiled criminals that are right up t

Wonderfully crafted and brilliantly concocted, THE REVOLUTION OF IVY takes us through a world of emotions, while keeping us at bay with the swoon-worthy romance and shocking revelations, this duology will have your head spinning by the time your finished!!

The Revolution of Ivy was such an entertaining Dystopian that I quickly devoured! I enjoyed where the story went and how everything was fabulously wrapped up! But while I was flipping through the pages, I desperately wanted Bishop back in the picture. And I wanted even more for Ivy and him to get their happily ever after. But I definitely questioned whether that was a possibility. Not because Bishop didn't come back, since we're told in the synopsis that he do

Now THIS is how you end a duology. I've finally discovered a dystopia without the usual tropes and annoyances. Whenever I read Amy's books I feel like I'm catapulted into that world, I'm fully immeshed in everything that's going on, and it's bliss. The characters are so strong and likable, the romance is amazing, the plot is fast-moving and plot twist-y. I love this series so so much!! Book 2 brought a satisfying conclusion and a wonderful end. ...more

This was just, eurgh, I loved it. I absolutely loved it. It's not often that a sequel is just as gripping as the first book but Amy Engel managed it perfectly with The Revolution of Ivy. This was just as heart pounding, intense and page turning as book one. I adored the character development throughout the book, especially in regards to Ivy and he different relationships she allowed herself to develop. The friendships were wonderful and the romance in this duology has quickly become a new a

5+++ STARS!! Loved it!!

"…no revolutions are won without sacrifices… I've lost so much, but I've gained something, too. Life beyond the fence is transforming me. Not into a new person, but back into the girl I've always been underneath all the layers… built on top of me. Slowly, I am finding myself. I am becoming Ivy again."

The sequel to The Book of Ivy was awesome. I loved it. Full of action, suspense, betrayal and second chances, it was a perfect ending and an expected one, to this wonderful dystopian story.
I loved seeing Ivy make it past the walls of Westfall, take control of her situation and become the young woman she was meant to be. I loved her and her tenacity.

This was a solid book, but since I loved the first one so much this one was a little disappointing. However, it was still enjoyable.

The Revolution of Ivy is one sequel I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this year. We were left with a horrible cliffhanger at the end of the first book, with Ivy separated from Bishop – him believing she never loved him – and banished from her home. She’s trading in a life of forced marriages and attempted murders for one she’s much less prepared for. Outside Westfall’s borders is a place full of unknown dangers for Ivy – human and natural – and she has to figure out on her own how to survive.

Reviewed together with my awesome coblogger, Nereyda!

Initial Thoughts
Nick: Wow! This was one of my most anticipated sequels of 2015. The Book of Ivy which released last year was one of those hidden gems that I immediately devoured even though it is a dystopia and I was over that phase by then. The book ended on a cliffhanger and I was eager to get my hands on the sequel. This book was everything that I wanted out of a second book and so much more. It was addicting, wildly romantic and fea

I just had a bitter sweet experience with The Revolution of Ivy. I started this with a bang. Ivy's strength and kick-assery(is that even a word? lol)was shown at the first part of the book that I can hardly put the book down. I knew right there and then that I was right to anticipate the release of this sequel regardless of the disappointment I had with The Book of Ivy.

I didn't put a warning in this review. It's safe to proceed. But with caution, there is some fangirling.

I give this book 4,5 stars.

I know, I am as surprised as you are.

After reading the first one, I thought * Well, it could only go downhill from here*. I was caught off guard with this one.

The sun was shining, birds were singing and I liked the book.

Even more surprised that I liked Ivy.

I mean, yeah, she did piss me off in the first half. But after reading so many books about conf
Jen (The Starry-Eyed Revue)
I liked his sequel slightly less than the first book. This is mostly due in part to how long it took for Ivy and Bishop to finally COMMUNICATE once they were reunited. I get Ivy's rationale, but that doesn't mean it wasn't completely frustrating. I mean, I looked down at my phone and realized I only had a little over two hours of audio left, and they were still doing that song and dance.

That said, I thought the second half of this novel wrapped up the duology nicely. Big risks. Big results. Big
