Uprising, by Jessica Therrien, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

In book two of the Children of the Gods series we see Elyse’s character developing as she grows into her role as leader of the descendants.  Elyse is the one foretold to save the descendants from centuries of oppression, and according to prophecy she will have a baby who will become the new oracle. But the Council, under the control of Christoph, wants the baby in order to maintain rule.  Elyse begins to have prophetic nightmares and must make some difficult decisions and life-altering sacrifices for the good of the descendants.

Uprising is an exciting page-turner which grabs the reader from the beginning and never lets up. There are enough plot twists to keep readers sufficiently engaged throughout. About the time you think you’ve figured out what’s going to happen, in comes another mind-blowing turn of events.

Author Jessica Therrien artfully depicts scenes and events throughout the book; in her description of the descendant’s annual celebration one can nearly smell the blossoms on the trees and hear the beating of the drums. This is an exhilarating read that will have your heart beating with anticipation.
