This book started off with a bang and held my attention throughout. The story takes place over a span of just a few days and it is unputdownable. It is part thriller, part suspense, part young adult romance, and part conflict/war. The story is expertly crafted and the characterizations are genuine. While the novel is fiction, persecution of this type is not implausible and that made the book intensely thought-provoking. I am quite impressed with Subversive and I cannot wait for Ms. Rood’s next novel in this series! I know she can write well, but I hope she can write really fast, too!
Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent, Subversive was suspenseful from the very first page to the last.
The Christian elements were appropriately placed in the story, and they never bludgeon the reader over the head. One of the things I look for in Christian fiction is if it draws me closer to the Lord, and this book does.
I loved the way this book kept me reading, flipping virtual pages until the very end. I began reading Reverence the other night and could not put it down until I reached the end.
