Insurgent is the riveting sequel to the surprise bestseller Republic: A Novel of America's Future.
Three months after the end of the West Virginia civil war, Valerie Murphy faces her worst fears as the violence escalates. Former Congressman Al Clark, now Governor of the bankrupt state, must quell an insurgency even as he struggles to put the state back together.
In a small town south of Charleston, West Virginia, Corporal Jim Turville meets a young ballet dancer who dreams of moving beyond her small coal mining town. As the young couple grows closer, their love and their lives will be at risk as insurgents move to disrupt the town with shocking violence.
I have enjoyed this story immensely, the story and characters are engrossing. I have been unable to put it down because I am so hooked. It has made me laugh, grimace, and cry throughout the story (same with Republic) and I am hoping book 3 will be available soon. I highly recommend this series.
