The Black Tide: Rebellion by Baileigh Higgins - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads Bookdepository

Review by Anniek

Ava and her sister Lexi are orphans now that the virus has also taken their father. The army is on the lookout for Ava after she stole food to survive. The virus became airborne and killed off the rest of humanity. Only those who turned out to be immune survived. Ava, Lexi, Sarah, Calypso and Lloyd are now living in a secluded river house, working hard to keep the place as secure and safe as possible. Will they be able to build a new life there?

Brian is in love with Ava, but they got separated when he was sent to the border. He applied for the army when his parents passed away after they got infected by the virus. Brian and two other military survivors are headed towards the river house, which belonged to Brian's parents. He hopes he'll find Ava and Lexi when he gets there. His military brothers aren't the most trustworthy human beings. Can he count on these guys to stand by his side when the going gets tough?

Ava has been so strong ever since the virus got out. She's taking care of her younger sister and she goes out on supply runs all the time. Together with Calypso and Lloyd they make a strong team. Ava misses Brian very much and she hopes that he's still alive and will eventually find his way back to her. Ava and Brian are both skilled enough to survive in this new harsh world, but they have remained caring and kind. I admired that in these people, even more so because of everything they've been through. After all the hurt I was hoping wholeheartedly that Ava and Brian would find their way back to each other.

The Black Tide: Rebellion is a bone chilling story about surviving in a lonely world. Now that the only people left are the ones who are immune to the virus, a new world has risen out of the ashes. Not everyone is having the best intentions and this results in situations that made me forget to breathe while I was reading. The Tides of Blood series is heart-stoppingly frightening and I had a hard time putting The Black Tide: Rebellion down. Baileigh Higgins always grabs me from the very beginning and I can't wait to read the final book in this fantastic gripping series.


If you're a fan of post-apocalyptic stories you shouldn't miss The Black Tide: Rebellion. Please note that this is the second book in the Tides of Blood series. I'd advise you to read The Black Tide: Remnants before starting this story and keep in mind that the story will continue in the next book, The Black Tide: Vanquish.
