by C.S. Hand
Genre: YA Dystopian
Release date: August 8th 2018
For fans of Divergent, Red Rising, and The Hunger Games comes a gripping new tale of ambition, treachery, and love.
When what appears as a prank on arrogant ambassadors at an exotic vacation city turns out to be the first tremors of a revolution, the Enlightened Council of Castillia turns to its 11-year old undefeated military prodigy and her loyal Guardians for help.
After all, it was Innocence who liberated the Jewel of All Cities in the first place. Everyone knows she will be the last to let it slip from her grasp.
But why would anyone want to leave Castillia? Its laws are just. Its Council is democratically elected. It has liberated more cities than any other Republic, past or present.
But Castillia has enemies, that’s for sure.
Sedition is the favorite trick of the southern Republic Ausonia. In fact, the exotic vacation city used to belong to Ausonia—and they have always wanted it back.
But could those hedonists really organize anything between all their dancing and drinking?
Or has Vesper, the mighty Republic to the North finally woken from its slumber? It has plenty of old scores to settle with Castillia and it’s palm-lined streets.
Squashing the uprising and re-uniting the town and her city could be the perfect way to end the most legendary military career Castillia has ever known and begin a new, exhilarating life as a prominent politician.
But it also might just be the perfect way to start what Innocence has secretly always yearned for: her own Empire.

Her Revolution is a gripping science fiction and dystopian themed book. Definitely one that demands your attention with descriptive scenes and steadily changing events throughout. A quiet room is a must when reading this for sure.
I was intrigued by the characters and C.S. Hand’s poetic style of writing. From the beginning, this seemed more New Adult with some phrasing and context in the book. It surprised me since the character is young in comparison. Most of the plot was quite interesting but could get a bit wordy at times. I do enjoy the artistic style of writing but found myself skipping the quotes before the chapters. Of course, that could be because I tend to overthink poems or quotes and could spend hours getting lost reading more.
Overall, this first person narrative could be chilling and calculating in her planning and perspective. I recommend it for those that want to read a challenging and chess-like point of view.
