What started as a way to bring her brother back morphed into a battle for knowledge and, ultimately, truth…

The world Kristen created in The Revisionary is reminiscent of that in the Hunger Games, but our heroine’s journey of discovery is comparable to that of Tris’ in Divergent. If you liked either of those series, The Revisionary is an obvious MUST read. – Jordan

  • Review by Christian Books for Tweens and Teens

The Revisionary is a sharply written dystopian tale with an interesting protagonist and supporting characters. The well-woven plot takes some interesting turns, including journeys of a sort back into American history. The political and relational intrigues and subtle spirituality were captivating.  This is a book readers should look forward to reading. – Glenn Haggerty
