Beatrice There could (maybe) be a third book for Bishop's point of view. But the author isn't sure about that yet, even though the fans would love to!

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

Αιβι, είσαι χαζή κοπέλα μου; Δεν έμαθες ποτέ να βάζεις προτεραιότητες; Ή απλά τις βάζεις λαθος;
Το ηλίθια είναι λίγο για να σε χαρακτηρίσει. Εσύ όχι μόνο γυρνάς και το άλλο μάγουλο στο χαστούκι, αλλά σκύβεις για να σου κόψουν ολόκληρο το κεφάλι. Τουλάχιστον πήρες το αίμα ΜΟΥ πίσω.

“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 trainin

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!

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.

Following the unexpected ending of book one, Ivy is no longer in Westfall, now she’s o

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

Si pour moi, le livre aurait mérité d'être plus équilibré dans l'action, c'était une belle conclusion.
Pas mal de larmes versées et un Bishop incroyable qui donne de faux espoirs sur les mecs dans la vraie vie... XD

*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.

And the biggest selling point of book 1 for me was the romance and we start Revolution with our love i

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

I wish I liked this one a lot more than I did......
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

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
Rachel  (APCB Reviews)
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.

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.

Bishop...the man was amazing once again. I love how he doesn't try and save Ivy, doesn't try and be the knight, but rather takes pride in w

This was a super fun and addictive duology with OTP worthy characters, and I highly recommend it!

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."

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.
