The Blackcoat Rebellion, Book 2
Synopsis: For the past two months, Kitty Doe’s life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate the Prime Minister’s niece, her frustration grows as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoats keep her in the dark more than ever.
But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she’s accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape.
As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she’ll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in—but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?
Review: I had a great time with the first book and I was really looking forward to read more. As soon as I had the opportunity to immerse myself in the story, I did not hesitate a second!
Kitty Doe had to adjust to her new life in the first volume, and to face the consequences of her transformation into Lila Hart. Yet more than ever, Kitty feels trapped. Yes, she is now a real pawn in a plan that is completely beyond her. But our heroine is tired, she does not want to be part of a game where she doesn’t have any controle and whose consequences hurt the people she cares about. Alas, rebelling could be worse than anything and when Kitty is set once again to the wall and ends up hurt more than ever, she will have to learn to survive in the place where she is sent. Elsewhere, this place where all the excludes are brought together, criminals and people who aren’t wanted, a place even worse than we would have thought but that could bring a lot of surprises.
Kitty has to go through a number of events in her life and it’s true that it’s pretty impressive to see that she still stands up after all what happens to her. I was also so sad for her… She tries to do the best, to help as best as she can and yet only misfortune falls on her. Kitty has no person to whom she can turn to, she can not trust one single person and everything falls continuously over her. Of course we have Benji, sweet and charming Benji but will he always be there for her? And we also have Knox. Oh boy … We appreciate him, we dislike him, we hate him. Yes, our sentiments are always changing along with those of Kitty’s because of her discoveries and I admit that I was surprised more than once about him. Is he a traitor? Is he a friend? Questions appearing repeatedly elsewhere. It is very difficult to decide about him but one thing is for sure, it’s not possible to trust him. He has his own goals and whatever they are, our Lila remains in the greatest secrecy, suffering the consequences of his actions. At the end of the novel, I can say that I am still in shock … so many things and yet I still do not know what to think. At the same time we understand the reasons but we also understand the difficulties behind this.
But that’s not all because we learn an incredible revelation, one that perfectly explains why Kitty was chosen to take the place of the young Lila. I was really surprised when I learned the truth because it’s not something I expected but I let you the pleasure of discovering it for yourself.
In any case I had a great time with this new novel, by following Kitty, seeing her doubts, her sorrows, her hopes and her determination. This is a great game combining plots, murders, complots and where our heroine is the key. The end is pretty amazing too and I am very curious to see what will happen thereafter to see how our Lila will manage to get by everything.
