Five years ago, he became the alpha of the most influential London pack. Responsible for monitoring and suppressing the human resistance, also known as the Candidate Evacuation Group.
A group he’d secretly founded.
Now exposed and on the run, labelled a traitor by his peers, he finds refuge in the home of the man he left behind. The only man he’s ever loved.
For Michael, that love burns as bright as it always has, but they’ve been apart a long time. He can’t expect Isaac to still feel the same.
But he can hope.
When Michael left for London after the war, he took Isaac’s heart with him, promising to return when the time was right. But that took longer than either of them expected.
Now he’s back, with the whole of the Shifter Alliance Party out for his blood. But being together is hard. Long-buried feelings bubble to the surface, and rekindling an old romance is low on the list of priorities—they have a rebellion to fight.
Isaac will protect Michael with his life.
But trusting him with his heart again isn’t nearly as easy.
Uprising by Annabelle Jacobs was everything that I hoped in the continuation of the Rebellion series. This particular book focused on Michael and Isaac, separated for five long years as their work with CEG took precedence over their potential mating.
There are a few things that I truly like about the series. One, Ms. Jacobs never failed to keep past characters resurfacing in subsequent books as they are all important in the overarching theme. Two, Ms. Jacobs delivered twist and turns which the reader would not expect, keeping us on the edge of our seats. And three, Ms. Jacobs gave all her characters life, edge, and intrigue.
Michael and Jacob captured my attention and they never let go. The author allowed them to create their own flow which traversed throughout the book in good and bad times. They created their own HEA, not forced but worked for- probably my favorite couple to date.
Ms. Jacobs has the uncanny knack of writing edgy scenes that take the reader to the brink, yet never lets us fall. Instead, we hang on every word in the hopes that the next sentence, paragraph, scene, will bring us full circle.
A book and series not to be missed.
