review 1: First off, if you haven't read Glistening Haven, be sure you do. Glistening Rebellion is the second book, and while it gives some small amount of back story, I think it is necessary to read Glistening Haven to get the full story. It is worth the read, as is this second book.Glistening Rebellion picks up a bit into the previous characters' lives. It is just as equally fast paced and exciting as the first book. I love the way the book shifts through so many characters and gives readers a glimpse into all their views. This book is a dystopian, sci-fi, and I would say suspense. I was reading through trying to pinpoint what would happen next, who was causing what, and who was lying for their own gain.As far as characters go, there is a glimpse into most of the characters from t... morehe first book. Most of the book switches between following Jenna or Jake as they continue to find out who they really are and what the world around them is really like. I liked getting a further look at Dirk and his thoughts.I was left with several moral debates in this book. Are the glistenings the monsters? They turn into fire breathing dragons who can slaughter a country during one blood lust. Many of them, most of them really, just seek a peaceful life of freedom. Or is it the humans, who trap and experiment on the glistening like they are no better than animals? It's a question to answer, and it's pretty circumstantial most of the time.I think Jill Cooper has an amazing imagination and story-telling ability. I get drawn easily into the world filled with glistenings, and I am stuck there. Even when I wasn't reading, I found myself considering what could happen next, and who would do what on either side. I can't wait for the next book. I really want to know what is going to happen next.I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
review 2: I had not read the first book, Glistening Haven, before reading this one. However, Glistening Rebellion starts off with a little bit of history which made it possible for me to enjoy this book on its own. Jenna Morgan is exactly the type of character I enjoy reading about. She is a strong, independent woman who is capable of taking care of herself but at the same time, she isn’t perfect and has weaknesses just like everyone else. Glistening Rebellion is a wonderful, action-packed story that still manages to keep its humanity and make the characters totally believable.I received a copy of this book for my honest review. less
