Publisher's Summary

I stood by and let it happen for too long, but I will not do it anymore. I will not be the person who watches others get hurt and does nothing to stop it. Not anymore. 

Returning to Sovereign City after everything that was stolen from her is something Indra never thought she would do. Despite the scars she wears both inside and out, left there at the hands of the Sovereign and the Fortis, she is determined to save her people from oppression, even if it means putting her own safety at risk. But it isn’t long before she once again finds her world shattering around her. As the dust settles, Indra manages to find strength among the ruins, and she sets out on a quest to unite the four Outlier tribes, hoping to take their enemies down once and for all.

Can I leave 6 stars???

I was hooked on this series after the first audiobook... I have anticipated the release of this one since I finished it, and it definitely was worth the wait. Now... please hurry with number 3!!! I can’t say enough about the author and narrator and how great they both bring this book to life.

If at first you don't succeed!...

Indra embarks on her new task after her revelation or awakening of who she is and what her purpose here on earth is. She has been on a one-woman quest to rid the world of the Fortis; one man at a time. She has been successful because she has not been seen, leaving the killings for the wild animals to mask her involvement. That luck is sure to run out and it will have dire consequences for the other Outliers. Realizing she can not accomplish her task on her own, Indra sets out to unite the four tribes of Outliers. If she succeeds she will have the numbers necessary to defeat the Fortis and then move on to the Sovereign. This is the story of Indra’s new mission; to unite the Outliers and bring an end to the Sovereign’s reign of oppression.

Great Fantasy Adventure!

Story has a very good flowing from scene to scene. Author has thought out progression of entire audiobook to smoothly require a sequel. Narration was flawless, and professional. The narrator’s voice was perfect for this type of story. It is not an “ooey-gooey girlie”book, but one that will draw listeners into the different characters experiences.
I recommend this audiobook for ages 17 and older due to some adult situations.
I was given this audiobook for free and I freely give my opinion and rating

Uprising

A fantastic series Indra has been taking to treatment that has been dealt her people for along time. Its time to take whats theres back. Will they be able to accomplish this. This is definitely a must read series. That keeps you captivated through the whole read. With twists and turns. The Narrator does a great job at bringing out the Characters as well as the Authors writing to where you can visually see the scenes. This series to me is up with the 100 and Divergent

Left me wanting more

Like book one, this book left me wanting more. Super excited to listen to book 3. Kate L Mary is one of those authors that can evoke feelings when I'm reading/listening to her books. At times I find myself so mad I don't want to listen, but then I think "damn she's a great writer"

A force to be reckoned with...

Uprising: A Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Novel (The Outliers Saga, Book 2) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Grace Sylvan is...WOW! What an exceptional follow up! For reals…if you enjoy books with darker themes, are empowering to women, strong female leads, or post-apocalyptic/dystopian worlds, you should be checking this series out asap.

What it’s about? After healing from her husbands death, Indra returns to her previous place of employment but something in her has changed. She is no longer the powerless woman she once was. Going back to work and encountering the Fortis and Sovereign sets off a flurry of emotions. No longer able to do nothing when her friend is being violated by Lysander, she takes action, resulting in changes for the Outlier tribes, Fortis, and Sovereign. Expect a lot of action and killing. We learn about the different Outlier tribes as Indra tries to unite them to rise up against the Fortis and Sovereign. Indra creates and becomes the leader of a new tribe of women. A romantic relationship develops. How to deal with the threats in the wastelands and from fellow tribal members? Who lives in the mirrors that make the energy for the Sovereign? How to handle the misogynistic tribe? What is it that’s stopping the tribes from entering Sovereign City? What happened to the missing tribal members? There should be no surprise that the book ends in a cliffhanger as there are three books in the series, but I feel I need to say this because there’s always someone who complains.

If you are looking for an empowering book, this is it. Make no mistake, it’s a book that deals with dark subjects. Kate’s writing makes you feel emotions and creates bad guys so bad that you can’t help but hate.

The narrator, Grace Sylvan, once again did a great job. As I said in the first book review, it is clear she is the perfect fit for this series. I would check out other books by her.

Overall I cannot recommend this series enough. I feel it’s Kate’s best work to date. I went straight from book one to book two despite other life obligations I should have been doing. If you enjoy books with darker themes, books that are empowering to women, or post-apocalyptic/dystopian worlds, this is the series for you. If you are new to Kate’s book, you best get on the Kate bandwagon quick!

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: revenge, remembering past sexual assaults and coming face to face with abuser, attempted rape, slaves, sex on wedding night and one other time (not in graphic detail), tattooing, killing of men via arrows, death from other weapons, one tribe is extremely sexist and believes women need men to survive (treats women like they are the bottom of the barrel- no eye contact/no talking or addressing women, comments about how they are inferior and things along those lines), hitting of a woman by a man, cruel treatment of the disabled by the Sovereign, getting rid of babies who are born with what some might consider a disability (death or sent to live elsewhere), and possibly similar scenarios that I’m forgetting. I do not recall any swearing. This is a book that contains dark/potentially triggering subjects.

Great Read

Uprising: A Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Novel was another great read by Kate L. Mary. Indra returns to Sovereign City to save her people from oppression. Even though it may put her own safety at risk. She is on a quest to unite the four Outliers in order to take down their enemies. I enjoyed reading Indra's story and enjoyed Grace Sylvan's narration and can't wait to read more in this series.

Great book but Hoped for more

I would say that I am veracious reader and listener and get through a few books/ Audio books a week. I have eclectic tastes which range from Jeffrey Archer to Stephen King, My main genres are Fantasy and Sci-fi.

I contacted the author on social media who very kindly gave me a copy of the book.

I was overjoyed by the first book and it is easily was my favourite book of 2019 so far so I had high hopes for the second instalment.

Again I love the Narrator I know some people are not keen on her accent but it is so distinct and unlike anything that I have listened to before. I feel that she is perfect for the story, Also the quality of the recording is awesome!

So the story why did I only give it 4 stars, the main reason was that the plot was relatively straight forward not that this is a bad thing but it wasn't what I expected after listening to the first book. I almost felt like it was trying to get from point to point in the quickest/easiest way.

The character development was good especially with the main protagonist growing and starting to get a wider perspective.

I'm looking forward to the next book and hoping to delve deeper into the world. I would recommend this book to anyone and still believe that it has potential to be an epic series.
