Peace is an illusion. Blood, violence, and death follow Mira like shadows. Battle lines have been drawn between human and Otherkin, and a bloody war is on the horizon: one that will end in either a shift in the world's balance of power...or ultimate destruction.
In spite of their strength, powers, and a rage known only by the oppressed, the Otherkin are evenly matched by the superior numbers of the human army. To tip the balance in their favor, the Otherkin need more soldiers - and their only options are the Gladiators of New Haven city. Mira is sent across enemy lines to recruit any able-bodied vampires to her cause. But what she discovers along the way will blur the lines between friends and enemies. Seeds of doubt weaken Mira's allegiance, and she finds herself torn between the old masters who used her as entertainment and the new ones who consider her as nothing more than a weapon. As the war draws near, Mira will have to decide what she is truly fighting for.

What I love most about this story is the perfect example Katie shows of Diversity and the effects of preconceived notions about people.
Mira, Is my favorite character. I love that she is a strong women and that she fights for her beliefs. I love the complexity of her character.
I love how Kerri McCann brings Mira to life. You can feel Mira's emotions and convictions dripping off every word,
My reaction to the ending of this book was pure shock!!! I did not expect it to end that way. Katie is a brilliant writer with an exceptional imagination.
I loved this Book. There are so many twists and turns. It is full of action all the way though. A must read!!
It is a great end to the trilogy! Revolution picks up in a seem less flow from the previous book Dissension leaves off. The author! always makes me feel like I'm part of the world I'm reading. I highly recommend this series!
Exciting anticipation emotional
The way Mira fights for peace between humans and vampires no matter what comes at her
A since of life for the chatacters
lots of action and twists. This was one fierce audio/ read Mira just keeps getting better and better.
I really enjoyed this story. It starts and you feel like u are transported into the pages of the story. The characters are amazing. The female lead is kick ass. Kudos to the author on such an amazing series.
Fantasy & UF reader/blogger/writer. Content Editor. Photographer. I prefer to live in my own version of the world,no matter how weird it is.
I love that Mira is vocal on what she feels is right and adamant about how she wants things to turn out, for all. Mira seems to have stepped into the role of mediator in Caldera Grove between the humans and otherkin. Two extremely different views of the way things should be. Mira knows what she wants and is determined, with help, to get there, for everyone to get along without pointless deaths. They are not the enemies, the enemies are the ones that want to harm them all, no matter if human, shifter, vampire, or something more.
Kerri has a smooth cadence as she narrates the story to us. This is what gives the relaxed feel of Mira. However, there is a small section in chapter two that feels as if Kerri lost that smooth flow as she has a slight pause in reading a description. It's so minor that I rewound to verify it was there. There are a few pauses that feel a slight bit longer than the normal cadence of Kerri. They feel as they are changes in the focus or view within the chapter. But otherwise, Kerri has voiced Mira in two of the three books and holds true to the feel Mira projects.
Absolutely. I am hooked on Mira and her ventures to find peace. This book feels as it could be an end to the series. But that's not so as we know there are more books available after this one. I'm ready to dive into the world again with Mira. I will follow Mira through all her battles with everyone as she's grown to be a strong leader with a wise view on the world.
Being in a new place brings new feelings to the surface. Mira is experiencing new emotions she's not felt in over thirty years. She finds she's worried for her friends, yes friends as Mira hasn't had one in years, and their safety while she's gone and if she doesn't return. I think she's seeing jealousy in one person as well, but doesn't know it. There are two potential love interests for Mira, if she'll let her guard down long enough to let them in and for her to trust them. But the betrayal she's seeing often from others makes it hard to do. The battles she fights also shows the loyalty that she has from people as well, which may help in building some sort of relationship.
Yes! It is an amazing series :) Although I would recommend that they listen to the preceding titles first!
Kerri McCann really has made Mira her own! I love the way she portrays her now. Full of hope and yet resigned to the reality that she just might lose and lose her life and all her friends' lives in the process. All the characters show a depth of emotion I would surely miss altogether if I was just reading the book. I can't wait to listen to more! I will definitely be looking for more titles narrated by her and I fervently hope she continues on with this series!
The Arena scene was amazing! Very uplifting and hopeful :)
This series must be listened to (or read) in order. The first book is Initiation. The second book is Dissension. The third book is Complication. I can't wait to listen to Transition!
Mira knows they can't truly trust the Council... But what other choice does she have at the moment? She needs to keep her Human friends safe and she needs to go back and rescue the rest of the imprisoned Vampires. She can't do that all on her own... Not entirely. She trust her Human friends (especially Lucian) and Stryker and his Pack of Wolf Shifters but that's about it. She NEEDS to keep her promise to George! Will the rest of the Vampires agree to fight in the war against their Human captors once they are free? Will the Council keep their promises? Can she trust them to do what is in the best interest of everyone and not just themselves? Will she die while trying to free the enslaved Vampires?
Full of action and intrigue this series just keeps on getting more intense! You never know what will happen next or who you can trust. Mira grows more and more complex as she discovers more about herself as a Free Vampire and comes to care deeply for more and more people. It is a coming of age story full of hope, pragmatism and sarcastic humor that will keep you enthralled and entertained from beginning to end!
***This series is suitable for mature young adult through adult readers who enjoy post postapocalyptal dystopian supernatural fantasy horror with plenty of action, mystery, intrigue, and adventure with a dash of romance :)
I love books!
I've been waiting for this book and it didn't disappoint. All Mira wants is peace. Tired of the fighting and the constant battle just to survive Mira takes on an impossible mission to free her fellow Vampires. So many twists and turns I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I've lived every book in the series but I think this is my favorite. It has everything I love action, suspense, loyalty and a relationships that continue to grow. I love the sweet revenge she got with Olivia. That was long over due. You will ,over this series. Katie is a great author and she does Vampires like no else.
Sci-Fi, Fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, thrillers with sarcasm are my favorites with some Romance thrown in for fun.
So they have visited the Wizard and the Emerald City (the Otherkin & Caldera Grove) and now it is off to kill the Wicked Witch (the Magistrate & his Elite) and free the munchkins (Gladiator Vampires). Sadly I think the Vampires would probably end me after seeing them referred to as munchkins.
This third book is as good as the first two. Driven by a great story line with a cast of intriguing characters.
Kerri McCann again does a very good job with the voices, inflections and personalities. You can really feel Mira's emotions in the inflections.
Will Mira get the peace she is looking for?
Who will win Mira's heart, Lucian or Stryker or someone else?
What will become of the other Gladiator Vampires, especially the yummy George?
Who will survive? (This is sounding like the end of each episode of the TV series Soap)
Enough of the jesting. You will not be disappointed in this series, the Chronicles of the Uprising.
