My Review:

Terra Blanca – Insurrection is a great introduction to a brand new series Gaia by Zoë Routh. Terra Blanca – Insurrection grabbed my attention from the first page and never let go.

The action and suspense ramped up page after page with never a dull moment in between. Terra Blanca – Insurrection kept me hanging on as I raced to the end wanting to know how it all would turn out.

Rylie Addison is asked to be the leader of a new community on an island after the world comes to an end. Civilization is picking up and they are trying their very best to create new lives for themselves and everyone else as well as a safe place to live.

Just as they are getting everything set up and in motion a new group of people come in and want to take over and run things their own way. Rylie and her people have to find a way to take back their freedom and their home. Can they? Are they strong enough to fight back against these people and win?

Terra Blanca – Insurrection was well written. The description of everything that was going on was well written making it so easy for me to see what was happening in my head as if I was watching a movie.

The characters are all just as amazing. They made you feel as if you wanted to be a part of their community and stand up with them and fight for what was right.

The world-building was very well done. I can’t wait to see where this new series Gaia takes us in the next book.

Be sure and check out all the books in the Gaia series
