I thought he was mine.
I LIVED WITH TOO MANY DEMONS.
He belonged to the underground.
AND THE UNDERGROUND WERE COMING FOR HER.
I wanted to know every secret.
I THOUGHT I KNEW EVERY SECRET.
I thought we were safe.
WE WOULD NEVER BE SAFE.
I thought we had won the fight.
BUT THE WAR WAS ABOUT TO BEGIN...
Trixie Ashford-Blackwood is now a part of a world she had no idea existed a mere few months ago. Married to a vigilante, heir to the throne of the organisation governing London, and chasing her own tail as she tries to uncover more clues about her purpose within GRIT, Trixie is battling against time as much as she is her husband. She has no idea what lies ahead, no idea who the man is who lays with her at night, and no idea of the traitors hiding in plain sight, waiting to spill her priceless blood. Elias Blackwood continues to fight his urges. He controls his desires, keeps the beast contained and refuses to acknowledge the risk that he may let loose on his wife. GRIT is slipping through his fingers, his control wavering with every minute that passes, while betrayal runs rife within the ranks of his army. He fights against time, and the people who are trying to bring the king of the empire to his knees; to not only keep them alive, but save a city that is drowning in evil and debauchery. But GRIT aren’t the only people working the Capital. Someone else is watching them. Analysing them. Preparing to strike. Someone else is preparing to step up and threaten their place on the throne. Someone is about to declare war on GRIT. An uprising is upon them. No one could have foreseen the betrayal. No one could have anticipated the devastation they would soon have to face.
*Warning: GRIT is a dark romance series. There are no rainbows and butterflies.
I am constantly floored by this author... Just when I think I have her sussed out she changes the boundaries and leaves me reeling and she has done it again with The Uprising, she’s taken everything I thought I knew and made me realise that what I actually knew barely scratched the surface.
I thought it was impossible to love Elias more than I did but I was proven wrong... Somehow as he was showing Trixie the many different sides of himself I managed to fall in love with him more, I just love that he isn’t the same as any other character I have come across, he made me fall for Elias the monster, Elias the deviant and Elias the hero all within one single chapter, I really don’t know how Rebecca does it! Trixie really surprised me throughout the book, I wasn’t expecting her to react and behave the way she did at all, after the way GRIT Sector 1: Elias ended I thought for sure that I’d be opening this book up to find a completely different Trixie, so what I found shocked me but in a good way. One other character that I found I was intrigued by is Trace... I wanted to know more about him anyway but now I NEED to know more, he just surprised me in a few of the chapters and now I’m making grabby hands for his story ;).
In my opinion The Uprising is a lot more grittier than Elias, you get to see a little deeper into GRIT and a little deeper into the underground and they are both pretty dark in their own way. There were quite a few twists and turns in the story that kept me on my toes... And then there were the revelations that just shocked me and left me gobsmacked, even though there were some hints here and there I wasn’t prepared for most of them and I love how unexpected it was. I need to take a minute to say.... THAT ENDING!!!!! WTH!!!! I now really can’t wait for The Revolution and that ending is partially the reason for my eagerness!! Thank you for another gripping and tantalizing book Rebecca, I can’t see where Elias, Trixie and GRIT go from here!
