The Revealed by Jessica Hickam
Lily Atwood lives in what used to be called Washington, D.C. Her father is one of the most powerful men in the world, having been a vital part of rebuilding and reuniting humanity after the war that killed over five billion people. Now he’s running to be one of its leaders.
But in the rediscovered peace on Earth, a new enemy has risen. They call themselves the Revealed – a powerful underground organization that has been kidnapping 18 year olds across the globe without reservation. No one knows why they are kidnapping these teens, but it’s clear something is different about these people. They can set fires with a snap of their fingers and create a wind strong enough to barrel over a tree with a flick of their wrist. No one has been able to stop them, and they have targeted Lily as their next victim.
But Lily has waited too long to break free from her father’s shadow to let some rebel organization just ruin everything. Not without a fight.
The Revealed by Jessica Hickam is an interesting YA dystopian read. I liked the concept of the story. There were several parallel ideas intersecting and I liked that there was a lot going on. It is a decent story with some action and suspense, but there were a few times that I felt like I knew what was going to happen. All in all, this was a good read and I would recommend it to those who like YA Dystopian stories.
