Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Marissa Wolf
The war against the 'gades is at full throttle in this concluding novel to the gritty dystopian Blending Time series. Picking up where the previous novel ended, seventeen-year-old blenders D'Shay, Jaym, Reya, and the rest of the New Sun members are coordinating their final attacks to take back Wananelu, the capital of Chewena, from GlobeTran's control. D'Shay, Jaym, and Reya are also given dangerous personal missions to carry out and must overcome their past traumas to do so. Jaym has still not fully recovered from the horrific death of his blender match, Reya must face guards similar to the ones who abused her in captivity, and D'Shay continues to prove his worth to a native girl he loves. As with the other two books, each chapter begins with an epigraph, a nice touch that gives readers more details about 2070 Africa. One of the strongest aspects of the book is the vivid descriptions of Africa, which is probably attributed to the author having lived and taught there. The series will appeal to teens who like war stories or fast-paced and plot-driven dystopias. With well-written and believable action sequences and a suspenseful build-up leading to a hopeful conclusion, The Rebels Of New SUN delivers a satisfying ending for readers. It is recommended for libraries where there is a following for the series. Reviewer: Marissa Wolf
Kirkus Reviews
This conclusion to an exciting dystopia morphs from shoot'em-up into spy thriller as the titular rebels try to bring down the corporate tyranny established in their African territory. Called back to the city where they first landed in Africa, Jaym, Reya and D'Shay separate and work to free their colleagues from a notorious prison and to foment an attack on GlobeTran, the corporation that has established an intrusive, ruthless dictatorship. The three friends split up, each working on separate missions. Reya goes undercover as a medic in the prison where two of her friends suffer. D'Shay starts selling contraband inside the local military base in an attempt to swing the soldiers there to New SUN's side. Jaym, still morose after his fiancee's death (The Fires of New SUN, 2012), reluctantly teams up with her sister to aid New SUN's existing undercover network in the city. Kinch's emphasis here is on intrigue rather than battles. The often stilted expository dialogue is compensated for by a few nifty robot foes, such as flying bugs and metallic dogs. These are in keeping with his futuristic setting, although most of the African town comes across as contemporary. Nevertheless, fans will identify with the three returning heroes and should enjoy the conclusion to the series, even though this story rarely mentions the series' original premise of repopulating Africa. A satisfying conclusion. (Dystopian adventure. 12-16)
