Review Tour + #Giveaway: Revolution by Jessica Frances @RABTBookTours

I was raised in a world where humans no longer rule. 

In the past, we made a terrible mistake by creating a new species we thought would serve us as our army, which led to our downfall. 

There was a war, we lost, and many lives were massacred. It was the end of life as we knew it and the beginning of a hell we were now trapped in. We became enslaved to what we now called Superiors, becoming pets to them, simply there to entertain. In a world so miserable, I managed to do the unthinkable: I fell in love. But even that was doomed, because to love a Superior was forbidden.

What the rest of the Superiors didn’t know was how deeply a human could love or how resilient we became when we were hurt.

The Superiors never could have imagined an uprising, which was why they never saw it coming.

Humans deserved to be free, and I would stop at nothing to deliver that promise.

My name is Tilly, and I am still alive with one sole purpose: to begin a revolution.


I had been raised to believe humans were worthless. We owned them and controlled them, and when we were done with them, we threw them away. Therefore, I never thought I would ever feel more for Tilly than disinterest. I never expected to want to save her.

It was forbidden for a Superior to love a human. No one had ever crossed that line, but I did. I fell madly in love with her, so it was no surprise how we ended up.

I was raised to be a soldier, and that was what I was always going to be. However, I was not a soldier for the Superiors, not anymore.

I became a soldier for humans, and I would stop at nothing to help them. They deserved to be free, and I would die protecting them.

My name is Johnny, and I am here with one sole purpose: to finish a revolution.

“How can you do that to these humans? This is beyond cruel!” I demand of her, not as afraid of her as I am of Jax.

She saunters over to me, her expression one of someone feeling carefree. “Many reasons, one being I make a lot of money doing this. Another is it is great entertainment.” She shrugs. “You humans are beneath us. I think it is disgusting that you are allowed into Superiors’ homes. You deserve to be in cages and in gutters. You are genetic mistakes that I would love to completely wipe out.”

“You wouldn’t even exist without us!” I yell, angry at her words.

“You humans stupidly created a species superior to you in every way, and then you tried to exterminate us when you realized you were no longer at the top of the food chain. You failed, and now you are forever destined be our slaves, our pets, our playthings. You are weak, disgusting, disease-ridden beings who deserve every ounce of pain I give you.”

Without warning, she shoves one of the sticks at me, zapping me with an electric shock powerful enough to send pain coursing through my entire body, forcing me against the back of the cage.

I scream, shocked and scared at how painful the experience is.

She doesn’t stop, and I swear my heart gives out. But then she pulls back, her laughter slowly filtering through my ears as I begin to calm down.

“Pathetic,” she mutters to me, turning around and moving past the cages, randomly choosing humans to zap.

My Review:

I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Many, many, many years ago humans created a new species that was more intelligent, stronger, and faster and could heal quickly. Humans wanted to create the perfect human that could fight theirs wars for them. But they were in for a big surprise they ended up fighting the new species they created and guess what they lost. So now humans are slaves to the Superiors. Humans are now pets to the Superiors and are abused physically and mentally. They are not allowed to read and write or even talk. They are lucky they are given anything to eat but when they are given food it is usually only enough just to keep them alive.

Joseph Knight buys his family a human pet and his daughter Charlotte makes a connection or a bond with the human baby when she lays eyes on her for the first time and immediately agrees to take care of her. She is named Tilly and is allowed to sleep in Charlotte's room on a mattress at the foot of her bed on the floor. Charlotte teaches Tilly how to read and write and lets her be her own person. Charlotte knows this is against the law and there could be dire consequences if she is caught.

Charlotte's brother Johnny learns to love and care for Tilly just as much if not more than Charlotte but in a different way. He knows that this is also against the law but how can anyone help the way they feel in their hearts. But of course most superiors don't think that humans have any feelings much less a heart. Tilly has it somewhat better than most humans because of Charlotte and Johnny helping her out with their father when they can which is not often.

Most humans are treated way worse than Tilly. But Tilly is almost at that age where she is getting to old to be a pet and will probably be sent away to be used in other ways and for other things for someone her age. When Charlotte and Johnny both get their own lives and move out of their father's house to live their own lives then Tilly will no longer be needed at the Knight household so will then be sent away to live a darker life than she has now.

Charlotte and Johnny don't like the way humans are treated and plan on finding a way to help Tilly and other humans to escape bondage and to live a better life. But will it cost them more than they are willing to give? How much or what are they willing to give up to help the humans have a better life?

Revolution will take you on emotional roller coaster that will have you laughing one minute and then crying your eyes out the next. It will take you down some very dark roads with no light at the end of the journey. But it is one journey that you will be glad you took. Revolution will have you wanting to take some people and beat them until they can't stand any longer. It will also have you wanting to take a hold of some people and give them the biggest, longest hug ever. It will break your heart wondering how anyone can treat another human like this. How can they be so cruel? How can they be so much hate in someone's heart?

Revolution is one book that I would recommend to anyone that loves a good book. This is one book that everyone should read. So grab your copy today and get started on reading a wonderful story.
