SciFi Book Review: Revelations

Revelations by JA Souders

Synopsis:
Six weeks after her arrival on the Surface, Evelyn Winters is no closer to unlocking the memories lost in her subconscious than she was when she first came. Isolated in a strange new society, Evie has only Gavin Hunter to remind her of who she once was.

But even with a clean slate, it’s easy to see that Evie doesn’t fit in on the Surface. And as her differences make her feel more and more alone, she can’t help but yearn for that place she doesn’t remember: the isolated city hidden in the depths of the ocean. Elysium. Home.

But she can’t exactly tell Gavin what she’s feeling. Not when he’s the one who helped her escape Elysium in the first place, and has the scars to prove it. Though the doctors say otherwise, Gavin believes that Evie just needs time. And if her memories don’t come back, well, maybe she’s better off not remembering her past.

But the decision may be out of their hands when Evie’s ever-elusive memories begin to collide with reality. People and images from her past appear in the most unlikely places, haunting her, provoking her…and making her seem not only strange but dangerous.

Evie and Gavin can’t wait around for her memories to return. They’ll have to journey across the Outlands of the Surface to find help, and in the end, their search may just lead them back to the place it all started.

Review:
Even though Evie’s mind has been wiped, she still retains her feelings for Gavin. Evie, Gavin, and Asher travel to a fortified city in hopes of finding a way to help Evie with her memory and violent flahsbacks. Her flashbacks are jarring, but what’s scary is what she does when she blacks out. But the journey is dangerous, with mutated birds, hungry coyotes, and other obstacles along the way.

Revelations is a dramatic and exciting sequel. Though not as intense as the first, there is still plenty of suspense and mystery that made it hard to put down. There are several surprises along the way, especially when they have to head back to Elysium. And when they arrive in the underwater city, I found myself reading faster as the intensity grew. There isn’t a real resolution at the end on this installment, so I’m hoping the next in the Elysium Chronicles brings some kind of conclusion. Unless, of course, the series is picked up by the publisher for additional books. This dystopic series is a unique and thrilling saga that I highly recommend.

I was able to attend this year’s Syfy Digital Press Tour (or Behind-the-Scenes Tour) in Montreal where most of our day was on the set of Helix, Syfy’s newest series coming in January 2014!

Some of the areas are still under embargo, so I’m not allowed to post those photos yet. But here’s what I can show…

We started our tour through the corridors of the Helix station. I was able to catch it on video, so that it feels like you’re actually there:

And here’s a live action scene in a lab that we got to see up close:
