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 the final book in the Book of Ivy Duology. It was a process getting Ivy to talk it out with Bishop. I get it in some ways, but in others? I don't understand why she took so long. Otherwise, I was very happy with how things worked out through this book. The life Ivy started making for herself outside the fence made me proud of her. I wish she didn't hold on to her lies for quite as long as she did, but it sure made for some good drama. Ivy and Bishop grew as characters, both together and separately. In my opinion, they became something quite beautiful. There were some new characters introduced who I really enjoyed. I would love to see a Caleb and/or Ash spin off.
Amy Engel was born in Kansas and after a childhood spent bouncing between countries (Iran, Taiwan) and states (Kansas; California; Missouri; Washington, D.C.), she settled in Kansas City, Missouri, where she lives with her husband and two kids. Before devoting herself full-time to motherhood and writing, she was a criminal defense attorney, which is not quite as exciting as it looks on TV. When she has a free moment, she can usually be found reading, running, or shoe shopping. The Book of Ivy is her debut YA novel.
