Blurb (as on Goodreads)

Written in three installments, this is the breathtaking and sensual story of how two unlikely people change the world, and each other, one book at a time. 

Immerse yourself into the icy cold world of this scorching hot new novel. 
In No Plain Rebel, Felix finds out the truth. 
Or so he thinks. He’s trying to come to terms with that, as well as with the fact that the Clockmaster’s shack has been discovered by his fellow-soldiers, but he can’t exactly concentrate. The match girl’s fiery curls appear before his eyes every ten seconds, distracting him, and then he starts talking to her in his head. 
Because she’s no longer there. 
The Stadium is looming in the distance. 
It’s ten heartbeats to midnight. 

gold-dividerMy Take

Astra and Felix, two amazing characters, both equally strong (one mentally and the other, physically) and smart. Dreamers and survivors, both are a part of a plan- a grand celebration. No plain Rebel is the sequel to the dystopian novel No Ordinary Star. The journey continues as Astra and Felix find a hidden treasure in the basement of the clock master’s house. And by treasure I mean Books, Games, Music, Frozen food etc., practicing any of which is considered a Felony in “One World”.

The story begins with Felix and Astra learning about their father and the history their parents shared, both with them and Ulysses (The Clockmaster). Felix also learns the reason why Ulysses considers him as his only hope thereby leaving the job of building the clock into his trusted hands.

There’s another thing that Felix feels for the first time- Love. And how beautifully!

The plot has been strategically written, giving away details slowly and systematically. The reader is kept curious about secrets that are buried and events that will destroy mankind. Felix is planning a rebellion and he needs all the help he can get. He also needs a group of people called “The Rebels” and only Astra can help him find them. Astra- HIS match girl. The plot is fast paced and it only gets better. This is a journey of self-realizations and the not-so-simple choice between right and wrong. Felix finally learns what it is to be born a human and live like one. He feels his heart beat not only for himself but also for Astra.

I was, however, a bit disappointed with the ending. I expected a little more drama and a little more plot twist. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to how Felix faces his destiny. I also want to see more of Fe-stra! I think they have an awesome chemistry and they can achieve a lot together.

The Stadium is looming in the distance.
It’s ten heartbeats to midnight.

The third installment No Vain Loss will release soon, and I can’t wait to read it.
