GRIT Sector 1: The Uprising was a book that made me feel all of these things. I was just in awe while reading it. I may hat times that I did not want the book to finish because it was so good. The Uprising was dark, delicious, sensual, thrilling and so addictive that I could not take my eyes away from the book. Rebecca Sherwin totally out did herself. She just keeps getting better.
The Uprising is the second installment in the GRIT series. It is not a standalone. You must read GRIT Sector 1: Elias. It follows the lives of Trixie and Elias as they rule GRIT. I was blown away by the events in this book. I thought the first book was explosive but nope The Uprising upstaged it. The Uprising is not for the fainthearted. It contains scenes that will make you cringe or cover your hearts but for a person like me, I gravitated towards it because the story was so unique and captivating. The Uprising gave me so much chills and goosebumps all over my body that I found myself shivering by the sheer excitement. Rebecca gave us everything in The Uprising. She gave me emotion. She gave me drama. She gave me a dose of darkness that had me delirious and thrilled. She gave us so much angst that it was bleeding out in the pages and touching my soul. All I can do is bow down to her because she really outdid herself to give me a story that was uniquely and beautifully written. It was flawless, It was just pure dark perfection. I was so shocked by the writing of The Uprising because she gave us taboo fetishes that gave me so many shivers down my spine and I loved it. I craved it. She did not disappoint to give me a story that moves my inner dark soul. All I can say she gave a story that just screamed effortless.
"She was the fucking devil and she’d been sent to this earth to summon my demons."
Trixie Ashford Blackwood is one of those heroines that I just loved. She is one of those heroines who give a true dynamic to the story. I loved her strong side especially having to be strong in the role and responsibility she was thrust upon. I love her feisty side more and she was capable of handling herself. I could sense she was conflicted about who she was and we could see that there was a dark inside that wanted to break free. She was an equal to Elias and did not allow herself to be bulldozed by her husband Elias Blackwood.
"It was like his soul was in a dressing room, trying on different armours to see which one would protect him."
Elias Blackwood was a hero that had my heart pumping. He was brooding, dominant, controlled and just a true alpha male. He was sinister and dark but it was his love for Trixie that made me love him. I was also saddened because he had a duty that made him conflicted between his love for Trixie and his duty to his family. Sometimes he could surprise me because he had so many personalities that added a dynamic to his character. His thoughts and his whole being was testing him and I loved getting to know more of him and who he was.
The Uprising is truly a story that had me on the edge of my seat. With The cliffhanger that had me looking for more and speechless, I know the next book, Revolution is going to be nail biting explosive. I can't wait.
