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.

Not an EPIC Revolution
I listened to this book based on my love for Ivy and Bishop's relationship, which (in my opinion) is the very backbone of the series. Thus, If you want Ivy and Bishop developing their relationship, then I suppose this is time well spent.
If you want more focus on the political and social situation of Westfall and the world it inhabits, unfortunately, you'd be disappointed. Because it seems to me as nothing more than a prop to Ivy and Bishop's romance.
I'd only recommend it to those who want a resolution to The Book of Ivy. To be fair, it did tie up loose ends. But just not in a way that I would have liked.
I think the narrator was good. But I guess, I'm just comparing her to other narrators I've heard. I've listened to other narrators that seemed to be so into the story that I definitely felt moved by their performance. The narration for the Revolution of Ivy is really just that. A Narration. Reading the book aloud.
I honestly thought that the Ivy Series would focus on both Ivy & Bishop's romance as well as the socio-political situation of their world. But Book 2 pretty much shows me that the series is really all about the romance. And on that front, I think that it already reached the conclusion it needs. Thus, I think that the book should end at that point.
I had high hopes for a great sequel. But I guess I was just expecting something epic (perhaps involving explosions and a bit of a war) considering it was called "The Revolution of Ivy."
However, it wasn't like that at all. And I feel a little let down on that front.
On the other hand, at least it ended in a satisfying manner (in my opinion) with no more obstacles to the two lovebirds being together

A fitting ending for Ivy, Bishop, and Westfall!
