Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty--forced marriages and murder plots--for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall's borders.

But there is hope beyond the fence, as well. And when Bishop reappears in Ivy's life, she must decide if returning to Westfall to take a final stand for what she believes is right is worth losing everything she's fought for.

AMAZON | B&N | GOODREADS This book was just simply amazing. If you haven’t read this series you need to because it’s fantastic. The Revolution of Ivy was perfect

We pick up where we left off. Ivy is now outside the fence and must figure out how to fend for herself. The amazing thing about Ivy is her drive to survive. If it were me on the other side of the fence, I don’t think I would be as strong as Ivy is. Her family always considered her the weak link but really she is the strongest one of all of them. She has the ability to not let herself become consumed by her hate. Which we see her demonstrate during a very scary scene where she comes across someone from the past. There is one part where she throws up her arms even though she is almost done and is like come on at me.

When Caleb and Ash enter the picture Ivy is at her limit and they save her. Ash becomes such a great support for Ivy and Caleb although Leary of her at first. Also ends up becoming an important person in her life. I loved how they form their own little family and begin to depend on each other. Ivy is not afraid to do her share and work hard.

Bishop, oh Bishop. Talk about the awesome amazing fantastic book boyfriend that is Bishop. Holy smokes. He finds Ivy and even though she tries to push him away. He still the kind, patient, loving boy that he has always been. He is there for her, no matter in what capacity that has to be.

The thing I like about this book is that it gives us a real view of hate. How people can sometimes hate so much and for so long that the hate ends up becoming bigger than they are. It ends up becoming their essence that without it they don’t really know how to live. This is definitely the case for Ivy’s family. Ivy knows that she cannot move forward until she can let go of the past. She doesn’t want to end up like her Father and Callie, which is what drives the end of the book.

It’s so hard to write a review for such a fantastic book like this because I don’t know if I can do it justice. I loved this series so much and I can’t wait to read more Amy Engel’s works. She will be auto buy for me without a doubt. I really think you should pick up this book and fall in love with the series like I have. I want to share the love.
