    I usually like to add a little summary of the book in my own words when I write my reviews. It's just how I roll. But I really don't want to do that on this review cause it would kinda give too much away. Trust me, you will want to read this book to get closure for the series. But one thing is for sure...these guys cannot catch a flippin break!

    What can I say about this book...this series? Collide is what started my fascination with Mrs. Crane. I knew when I read it I would love everything she wrote…and so far I have. In fact each book, in each of her series, is different and better than the last. #TRUTH Please keep in mind when you read Revolution you must prepare yourself. Break out the tissues, cue the sappy sad songs, and get ready for one heck of a story. And if you don't shed a tear or two at the beginning you are apparently not human or have no soul. Just sayin!

    I probably have mentioned this before but I absolutely loved when more POV's were introduced into the series. Cause really it is not just Sherry and Merrick's story anymore. Throughout the series there are more characters introduced that we have come to love and adore. All the characters really have become like a second family, to me at least, and it's heartbreaking to see this series end.

    But guys...so much happens in this book! There are ambushes, deaths, love, and weddings. Oh did I just say that? Hmm maybe there was...maybe there wasn't. Guess you will have to read to see. And that ending!! Whoa! Absolutely loved it! It was something I was hoping for from the moment I fell in love with Merrick and Sherry at the very beginning of the series.

    Fav Quotes…
    Merrick: He leaned down to me, nose to nose, and let his fingers run a path across my cheek. “No matter what happens, baby, I love you more than I ever though was humanly possible. Sometimes, my heart hurts from being too full. Know that. If nothing else comes of this day, know that I loved you so much that I could never be sad again, wherever I am.” Yeah I know right? Freakin love that man!

    Lillian & Cain: “Make me forget that the world’s ending, Cain.”
    My heart ached a bit at that, but I complied with a willing mind and body and even grinned as I said, “Anything you want, L.” Yep, Cain is hot!

    If you love books that are packed full of romance then this series is just for. Yes, my dear Shelly can write a romance like no one’s business. So I bid farewell to this series but welcome her new books with open arms.

    Lighters and Keepers and Takers...OH My!!!
    I loved this series Collide and I especially loved the last book, Revolution. Even though the world was fading into the apocalypse, human life goes on....There is life and death and new life. The cycle continues whether things are good, bad or indifferent. This series told of hope, love, and was filled with undaunting human spirit. For me, it was actually inspiring. Many times life hands out lemons and we need to enjoy the day for today and appreciate the many little things we take so for granted.

    Thank you so much Shelly for writing a series so far from my reading genre, but so engrossing and so full of LIFE! I enjoyed every page and every character!

    It is so sad to see this series come to an end. We've all been

    It is so sad to see this series come to an end. We've all been through thick and thin with Sherry, Merrick, and the rest of the gang. In Revolution, the battle is coming to a crescendo. Not only are they threatened by the Lighters, the Markers, and the Enforcers, now they have Graphters to worry about. After their location is compromised, they have to leave suddenly, leaving everything they have built behind, things, memories, and lost loved ones. Food is scarce and so is privacy, but nevertheless they press on. There are turns in relationships and choices are made, which will affect each of their futures.

    We are introduced to a some new characters in this book, one being Chesser, who is an Enforcer that is secretly helping the rebels. I really liked him. Lily is said to hold the key to ending the war, and she does. This beautiful little girl is just precious. All the Keepers are their usual hot selves, and even Daniel the Lighter who turned over a new leaf, ends up being a hero. Cain is still his sexy, funny self, and you can't help but love him and Lillian. Miguel and Rylee are pretty hilarious also.

    Shelly has done an excellent job in bringing the series to a close in Revolution, which is exciting, fast-paced, and entertaining. There is still a ton of romance, which Shelly writes so well, and there is also a whole lot of action, danger, and edge of your seat situations that keep you turning the pages. Although I hate to see the series end, it really ends so well, and I think you will truly be pleased. Shelly even writes an epilogue, which is so awesome, and we get to find out about some new "little surprises" in it. This is a great end to an awesome series and I highly recommend it.

    FAITH, LOVE, AND HAPPY ENDINGS are three of my favorite things a

    FAITH, LOVE, AND HAPPY ENDINGS are three of my favorite things about the Author Shelly Crane. I've learned from reading all of her books that I can trust her to always make my heart happy by the end on her stories.

    This final installment in the Collide Series is bitter sweet. I've been anxious to find out what Merrick's fate would be but not so ready for the series to end. Shelly in her genius way gives us our most wanted answers in the first two chapters. There are so many things I loved about Revolution. One of my favorite parts is Lily playing dolls with Calvin. Her reference to Joy doll being "Piper, psycho Barbie" and telling the boy doll to "take that you sissy" made me laugh out loud. I LOVED the developing love story between Ryan and Ellie. I can't get them out of my head. It was too funny when Miguel walks in on Sherry and Merrick getting frisky. Miguel is still one of my fave characters and he finally gets a little love in this book which is another part (in the club) that just cracked me up. I also love the new character Chesser. There's so much action in this book as well as sweet and saucy moments. Shelly does not disappoint in giving each of the main characters an ending that will keep me happily ever after. Thanks to Shelly for making my heart swell with happiness for Merrick and Sherry.

    UGH! I can't believe this wonderful, crazy, amazing story is ove

    UGH! I can't believe this wonderful, crazy, amazing story is over!! I don't think I'm ok with that! This whole series has taken me on an emotional ride I don't think I will forget! Revolution picked up right where Catalyst left off (WITH MY HEART IN MY MOUTH!) with Merrick recovering from his Lighter attack! (THANK YOU SHELLY!) Things get really bad for the gang and you watch the characters fight to stay alive and keep hope. This book was so nerve wracking and dramatic I had to pause in several spots to calm down lol! It definitely keeps you on your toes. I was pleased with how everything was wrapped up, and getting to see certain things finally happen you have waited for really made up for the rage filled anger inducing parts that made me squirm. I feel like a mother who just sent her kid off to college OMG! My heart is full and broken all at once because it's over! I am NOT OK YOU GUYS!!!!! Shelly Crane writes the he** out of a book and I really hope you check out this series because it is so worth it!

    First let me say sorry it took me so long today to get our post

    First let me say sorry it took me so long today to get our post together, moving sucks major sometimes! Shelly Crane, what can I say that would truly capture the way I feel about Revolution? I haven’t reviewed the rest of the Collide Series and I’m thinking I may have to remedy that because; this series is seriously one of the best series that shows the struggle of life and love.

    First and foremost, for those of you have already read the Collide series up until this point, take a major deep breath and know Merrick is very much still with us! I was so worried but knew Shelly wouldn’t do that to us, I mean she is a HEA girl! I’ve read all her other books and I’ve never been disappointed! So a lot happens in this book, I mean it has to right since it’s the end. Is it going to be the end of human life as we know it, or is the Lighters reign finally over?

    LOVE! OMG all the love that is instilled in this book is so breathtaking that I’m actually jealous of the relationships these characters have. A band of people who knew absolutely nothing about each other when everything got started formed an incredible family that some don’t see in the actually relatives they have. That in its own is truly inspirational and just shows you that family is who make it. Merrick and Shelley, their love is so awe worthy that whenever I’m reading about them I have this ridiculously huge grin on my face, totally and completely love them! Then there is Cain. Fell in love with Cain and was so happy when he got Lillian. Their love is amazing too, as is Danny and Celeste’s love. I’m telling you so much love, oh and Jeff and Marissa can’t forget them! Then there is the lovely Lily; the sweet, innocent, beautiful girl who is so important on so many levels and helps in more ways than one. Sigh…then there is Daniel, the Lighter who turned sides…I can’t really talk about Daniel without giving away what happens, I happened to fall in love with him too and I believe my tears started around him. The most important thing to know about Daniel is he helps save the world from his fellow kinsmen. Calvin comes into play into this book as well and he is a damn good special!

    I love alternating POV, to me it makes each character more real by providing depth that we don’t see from single POVs. Shelly totally uses this in this book and it’s amazing, we even get a POV from Lily at the end. Love that little girl, I can hear her giggle in my mind know. This was an amazing ending to an amazing series, and though I’m sad to see the end is here, I could not be happier or more thrilled at how it ended. Love Love Love Shelly Crane!

    Amazing Finale!!

    Whoa! What a trip! I can’t believe this out-of-this-world series has come to an end. I have really grown attached to the Keepers! This was a pretty stressful book, too. The enemy keeps getting stronger and you just know something big is going to happen at any moment! This poor little family of rebels has already been through so much, it’s amazing that they have stayed so strong. Every time one of them walked out the door I was worried that they would not return. Sherry & Merrick are so amazing, they helped the group learn to love and survive no matter who or what was against them. This book really gave me a great appreciation for all the things I might take for granted, too – like beds, doors, food, and family. (Of course, it also made me start checking for the moon every night to make sure it’s up there like it’s supposed to be!) This will always be one of my favorite series!
