Alenna escaped. It was expected that she would die on the wheel, the island where would-be criminals are sent as directed by the UNA—the totalitarian supercountry that was once the United States, Mexico, and Canada. But Alenna and her boyfriend, Liam, made it to safety. Except safety, they will soon learn, is relative.

In order to bring down the UNA, they must first gain control of the wheel. If the mission succeeds, the wheel will become a base of revolution. But between betrayals, a new Monk leading a more organized army of Drones, and the discovery of a previously unknown contingent, Alenna, Liam, and their allies might be in over their heads. One thing Alenna knows for sure: There will be a reckoning. And not everyone she loves will make it out alive.

"As for what to expect in The Uprising, Stasse says it’s much more epic than The Forsaken. “I wanted to work on a bigger canvas, so this time around, the rebels travel the globe in their effort to recapture Prison Island Alpha, free their friends, and uncover the mysteries that haunt them so much. There are new tribes, new rebel bases, new battles, new creepy machines—and a bunch of plot twists too. Alenna gets tested in every way possible, and some of the people she trusts and loves the most turn out to have their own agendas and terrifying secrets.” --from EW.com

Previous version
I love the covers for this series, they have to be one of the most stylistically appealing out there. It helps that the contents are as cool as the cover, still on tenterhooks from the ending of book one. Everyone is so suspect, and I fear that  things are going to get really crazy before the end. I am so looking forward to reading THE UPRISING, but of also having it on display in my collection.
