Rebellion by Rowan Bishop - Review Tour and Giveaway




Rebellion
by Rowan Bishop

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:  Science Fiction Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Akyra Roux is an up-and-coming Security Operations commander: ambitious, dedicated, and fearless. Her soldiers have a reputation for getting the job done and cracking skulls, earning her a perilous mission to the far fringes of the galaxy.

As soon as she lands, however, Akyra learns the hard way that rival factions have a lot to gain by seeing her fail, no matter what the cost…

Captain Raemus Petrus is the hunky, charismatic leader of the genetically-engineered Titans stationed at the outpost. He has a job to do and battles to fight, and he doesn’t let anything get in his way. However, when Akyra and her team of hot-blooded females land on the planet, his need to protect her and his duty to betray her collide…

Can Raemus, engineered to be ruthless, prove he has enough humanity buried inside his heart to salvage his honor, save Akyra, and ultimately prove his ability to love?

Can Akyra, running from her past, learn to lose control of the one thing holding her back, her own heart?

Excerpt:

When one heard them sing of God, the words were carnal and blissful—as if they sang of sex. And when one heard them sing of sex, the words were heavenly and transcendent—as if they sang of God.

REVIEW:


Rebellion has some very unique world-building and that earned it five stars. Bishop used religion as the base of her story. It seems that religion and believers are not necessary the same. The two main characters are believers and are in rebellion agains the organized religion that rules the galaxy. The religion that is not serving the people and has become more interested in controlling the population than in providing spiritual guidance . Captain Raemus Petrous is a created man told he is not human and that humans are not to be trusted. Akyra Roux is a human and a Security Operations manager. When the two meet sparks fly and both find that their mission is changed. From there this is a fast paced story filled with action and romance. That romance often has to take a back seat to the action and danger they find themselves in. I liked the journal entires at the start of the each chapter. They give a hint about what happens to each of the two main characters and how they are agents of change. I also liked how the author showed the difference between organized religion and personal belief. Both gave an very unique look to the story.  would have liked a little more in the world building but expect that it will be more fleshed out as the series continues. Book two, Alliance came out January 2, 2017.
