Hogrefe brings the Rogues series to a satisfying close with The Reactionary. The book begins several months after The Revolutionary ends, with the second American Revolution well underway. The narrative takes us to new, unexpected places, including overseas to visit an unlikely international ally.

The book retains the fast pace and futuristic technology of the first two books, and I believe fans will be satisfied with not only the intrigue and politics, but with the maturing relationships between

After finishing "The Revolutionary" last year, I was anticipating the publishing of "The Reactionary". It was worth the wait. It was one of those books where I was constantly looking for another chance to steal away to read just a little bit more. When the book ended, I felt that the story had been completed although the Rogues have quite a bit of work ahead of them and relationships now had room to blossom and grow without prying eyes, but I was also sad that I was saying good-bye to this group ...more

An exciting conclusion to this trilogy

My rating is 4.5 stars

The cryptic warning read “Orbit to Sage: Pharaoh provoked ten plagues. We’ll defeat you with two. Find a Red Sea or brace yourself for Firstborn.”

I’ve been excited to read the conclusion to The Rogues trilogy. This dystopian adventure has been quite the ride!

Portia is quite the heroine. Thrust into terrifying situations, she holds tightly to her mission and perseveres. I love her loyalty to her friends and family, especially after she d

Portia determines to restore her broken family and her nation's freedoms. Could be impossible but she risks everything to accomplish it.

There's action from the first scene to the surprising ending. Crazy futuristic technology intends to control a fallen world.

I have enjoyed this series starting with the Revisionary, next the Revolutionary and now the Reactionary. The setting, post-United States, was dark, and hopefully, this story stays in the realm of fiction. Yet, Reactionary so close to reali

This book skillfully takes readers on a rollercoaster of emotions. Hogrefe makes every step of Portia’s sensational journey equally gripping and relatable. In this final book of the trilogy, Portia and the entire band of rebels are forced to dance between self-discovery and self-sacrifice for the sake of the community. The story kept me at the edge of my seat and the ending moved me to tears.

If you're ready to get lost in a great story with the perfect balance of adventure, action, and suspense with a little romance in the mix for good measure, do yourself a favor and check out Kristen's Rogues Trilogy! 
Feb 04, 2019 rated it it was amazing
This is the third book in the Rogue series by Kristen Hogrefe, but it doesn’t read like it. I never got a sense that this book’s purpose was to tie up loose ends and bring closure. It’s an action-packed novel of its own.

We see the heroine Portia as vulnerable. The characters face crises, work through attempts to break free from them, fail, try again. When help arrives, it is natural, not contrived or super-human, like I’ve read from some authors.

If you read this book without the others, you wo

Book 3 of The Rogues Series continues the story of Portia and the struggle of a newly liberated land to form a stable government and fight off tyrannical counterattack. The heroine continues to develop, this time more romantically and relationally with nicely nuanced spirituality. The strong supporting cast of male characters, both friend and enemies add color, and the imaginative plot features nice tension throughout. Although not quite as intense as the first two books, the dramatic action and ...more

Ahh...a fitting finale to a thrilling trilogy. I loved the incorporation of several European cities as well; this lent scope and impact to the plot I didn’t even know it needed, and it worked brilliantly.

This book changed things up a bit in that no longer was the story just told from Portia’s point of view, but also Gath’s and Luther’s. I enjoyed so much reading from their perspectives, it was just a little jarring at first since the first two were solely Portia’s POV.

So good!! A great and neede

Loved the final story

I am sad to leave these characters I've grown to love. But I loved this trilogy. I couldn't put the books down. Highly recommend.

Book 3 had some surprises in store along with satisfying developments to wrap up the trilogy nicely. I was a bit thrown by the viewpoint shifts, honestly, but that doesn't mar my enjoyment in the trilogy as a whole.
