This is the 1st book in a trilogy about two sisters. Once sister is caught stealing and sent into exile in the colonies, formerly known as America. The story picks up when the other sister decided to stage a rescue mission. There are many action packed moments and some unexpected surprises. I look forward to the next book in this YA dystopian series.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.I love the British accents.

I liked a lot of things about Dawn of Rebellion; the setting was good, and a lot of the world-building made sense. The two lead female characters were very well done. I found a lot of the use of modern slang kind of unusual, and Britain itself wasn't all that clearly flushed out as a whole. The narration was really good, barring a few minor and not particularly off-putting accent difficulties. Warning: this book has a gigantic cliffhanger at the end, so if that kind of thing really bothers you, wait for the next book before buying this one.
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
Wow!! AMAZING BOOK, AMAZING NARRATION!!! I loved how Danielle Cohen could go from AMERICAN accent to an ENGLISH accent!! she did an awesome job narrating this book!! I could RAVE FOREVER ABOUT IT.....BUT I THINK YOU GET THE POINT!! Now onto the Story, this is my first book by Michelle Lynn & I couldn't get ENOUGH!! I HAVE TO FIND THE NEXT BOOK TO THIS SERIES!!
I loved this book before I listened to the audio version, and now I love it more. I love how the characters just sprang to life with the narrator's voice
I don't know if I've read a book quite like this before. I could only compare it to the other two books in the series.
Whether the characters are English girls or Texas guys, Danielle brings flair and emotion to each character, and to the narrative, that makes it even easier to absorb than reading the book. (Not that there's anything wrong with the book!)
The moment when a purely innocent character died. The tragedy of the setting and the circumstances leading up to it really hit home in that scene.
Michelle Lynn is a brilliant writer, and I am a true fan of her work.

I like the narrator with her accent, but some of the character voices sounded very similar. She doesn't really sound like a 15 year old girl, but it didn't bother me much.
Gabby and Dawn are close sisters. After Gabby steals jewelry, she gets shipped off to the American colonies. Dawn and Gabby's boyfriend find a way to join Gabby on the colony and search for her. Be warned The story ends in a cliffhanger. The story switches perspectives between the three characters. The story was a little bit sad. A young girl dies of disease in the colonies while they watch, powerless to help her. The premise felt a little silly to me. I don't really believe Drew's reasons for going to the colony, and Dawn was just super lucky to get as far as she did. Despite Drew's claim that he wants to see his brother, we don't hear much about him and he seems forgotten after Drew lands.
