TLC Book Tour: The Insurrection ~ Chris Babu

February 5, 2020

About The Insurrection

• Hardcover: 320 pages
• Publisher: Permuted Press (February 18, 2020)

They are protected by lies. He is armed with the truth.

Having survived the Initiation and expedition, one battle remains: the fight for the heart and soul of New America.

Drayden and his friends, enlisting the help of Professor Worth, must find a way back to New America before the Guardians imperil their return. But for these teens, their problems are only beginning. The Bureau, which never expected them to survive the expedition, will do everything in their power to prevent New America’s darkest secrets from getting out.

Drayden’s only hope is the insurrection led by ally Kim Craig. The David versus Goliath battle between good and evil, between truth and lies, will push Drayden to his breaking point and require bravery, self-acceptance, and above all, belief in himself. Backed by the will of the citizens, he’ll need to engineer an ingenious strategy to defeat the all-powerful authoritarians. The question is, will it be enough?


Man, oh, man. Y’all, this series is so intense. I had to reread the first two books before I took this one in and I’m glad I did. They really could be read in one, fiery gulp because the plot builds impressively as the story hurdles from one volume to the next.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read something that held my interest the same way Babu’s books do. Reminiscent of The Maze Runner and The Hunger Games, Insurrection caps off this three volume series Whit Ha world wide whirlwind that made this fiction-loving, former polisci Major very satisfied.
