SUMMARY: 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 borders.
But there is hope beyond the fence, as well. And when Bishop reappears in Ivy’s life, she must decide if returning to Westfall to take a final stand for what she believes is right is worth losing everything she’s fought for.
The Revolution Of Ivy is a finale or a sequel to the Book Of Ivy which I’ve been anticipating for a long time. After the nightmarish cliffhanger of it’s prequel, I’ve been dying to read it’s sequel so I was very much excited when I finally got it in my hands. It was really a perfect finale and I loved it. After having such an amazing experience with this series, I would definitely look forward to more books from this author.
The book continued where it was left off in the previous book where Ivy is no longer in the westfall but beyond the fence. She is a daughter, wife, killer and traitor but now she has to become a survivor. Her father told her that no one can survive beyond the fence and he didn’t see the need to explain or teach about how to survive there. Now Ivy has to fend for herself entirely on her own to survive in a waste land with no food, water and shelter. She thought there’s no life beyond the fence but she was totally wrong when she meets some strangers and later a whole civilization who seems to be living there for a long time. In her way to finding herself and also to live in a place where no one recognizes her, she thought she’s going to start a new life but unfortunately, her past finally catches up with her.
Ivy is really a great character in this plot who sacrifices everything just to save her loved ones. We come to see her becoming more tough and stronger than before. Now in this strange land, she is just a nobody and also an independent person who can make her own decisions. Bishop is really amazing in this, after how things ended in the prequel I was really looking forward to their reunion. Their reunion was inevitable but the way they were reunited is totally unexpected. Ivy and Bishop are a strong couple because they built each other’s strength and I always enjoyed their relationship. The supporting characters Caleb and Ash are wonderful addition to the plot. They are totally kickass characters who teaches Ivy how to hunt and fight and with time they develop a strong bond with Ivy and Bishop.
The plot was well written but I hoped for much more action. The first part was slow paced but it wasn’t nearly boring watching Ivy struggling to survive and becoming a strong woman. At the end of the second part, we get to see all the action and thrills we are anticipating. Another thing that I liked about this book was the writing style which was solid and strong and I think the character development of Ivy is the best thing in this book.
Overall, it was fantastic and perfect end to the series. The ending was both bittersweet and happy but I liked how things turned out in the end. Now it was finally over, I’m really gonna miss both Ivy and Bishop. It is really a great YA dystopian series or duology and I would highly recommend it.
