Rebel Born (1st time around) hasn't hit me like ALL the other books, I am surprised by this feeling of...Is that it?
So much future state tech and sci fi in this book am I really getting this?
I feel like there is a whole other story missing from the uprising of the Zeros and the Black O's to Roselle awakening. That it was a too quick ending for Dune and Walther Peates...
I still recommend the series, the amazing author and all her other books. Amy is well deserved in her UTOPIACON awards and all other awards. I do not want to take anything away from her writing.
I am usually left with the feeling that once I am finished reading one of Amy's series or novels I want to start all over again because I was so invested in the fantasy, escaping and living inside the story. Amy is that good!
But I was left a little disappointed in this book, I want to re-read Rebel Born to make sure I understood it and have it straight in my mind.
Sorry Amy (if you read this).
The first two books set up the dystopian setting beautifully with strong and likeable characters and I was so looking forward to seeing how they went about creating a new world. Instead I found myself reading about collective AI intelligence, clones, human/animal (including dragons) hybrids and gods.
Then to make matters worse, all the characters who I loved in the first two books just become boring one-dimensional characters in the third book.
I will never again waste my time on this author and I strongly suggest you don’t waste your time on this trilogy.
I'm not sure it ended how I expected but I'm also glad it didn't drag into another book. You balanced it just right.
It pains me to rate this 1/5 - but Goodreads says 1 star is "did not like", and well, I didn't. The previous books explored power/control, the failings of a flawed class system, and rebellion in a world with moderately advanced tech. I was looking forward to seeing that world reborn, and seeing Roselle come into her own. This book didn't continue with any of that, and did not feel like a natural extension of the first two Secondborn books. I would describe this book as Hercules meets the Matrix, with alternate dimensions/worlds. Everything that happens in this book, including the laws of physics and history, seems completely new, and came from nowhere. Rename the characters, and it would be an entirely new story.
Had this been a new series, the concept was ok, but way too much exposition and repetition. I stopped caring about all of the characters before the end. Even Reykin, who I adored in book 2, fell flat.
The story took a really strange turn and for me it lost all of its magic and the connectections I felt with the characters. If they hadn't been developed so strongly in the first two books I probably wouldn't have made it to the end of this one. 95% of the way through the book I thought for sure there would be a fourth book, but instead it wrapped up in a dozen or so pages with a neat little bow and zero excitement.

This was such a massive disappointment after the first two novels, after becoming invested in the MC and actually caring who she would end up with romantically (when I usually hate "love triangles") only for it to be copped out and the choice is fixed with the parallel universe. Overall, a big disappointment.
