Book Review for The Revolution of Ivy (The Book of Ivy #2) by Amy Engel

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.

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

When I first read the synopsis for The Revolution of Ivy, I was hooked. I wanted to get it in my hands immediately. Without having read it, the premise seemed exciting and definitely something that caught my attention. However, once I started the book it fell a bit flat for me.

Plot and world building wise, the The Revolution of Ivy is really something that gets you thinking and wanting to find out more. In comparison to a lot of stories, the potential of having a great plot is not lost. However, in my opinion, the characters were... a little dry. I didn't feel attracted or attached at all to any of the characters, not even our MC. Of course, this is just my opinion but I would recommend The Revolution of Ivy if you're looking for some action or if you're a fan of Divergent, Mara Dyer, or even The Selection series.
