All her life Thalli thought she was an anomaly. Now she must use her gifts to fulfill the role she was called to play: Revolutionary.
Back in the underground State against her will, Thalli is no longer the anomaly she was before. She has proven herself to be a powerful leader aboveground and returns with information that Dr. Loudin needs to complete his plan of uniting the world under one leader: himself. But he, too, has information. A secret he has kept from Thalli her entire life. A secret that, once revealed, changes everything about the person Thalli thought she was.
Hoping to help Thalli rise up against the Scientists, both Berk and Alex join her underground, but their presence only brings more trouble for her. Now Dr. Loudin knows just the leverage to use on his captive, and she is forced to choose between the two of them. Is her first love her true love? Or does Alex ultimately claim her heart?
Unsure of everything around her, including her own identity, Thalli doesn’t know where to turn. She knows she needs the Designer, but he seems further away than ever. What she does know, though, is that if she doesn’t do something to stop Loudin, the fragile world aboveground will be lost once and for all.

I’ve followed this series from the very beginning, starting with book #1, Anomaly and then with book #2, Luminary. Both books left me on the edge of my seat and anxious for more. As all for all series, they must come to an end. The last book in a series either wraps it up perfectly or leaves the reader wondering where the rest of the book is. Fortunately, that isn’t the case with Revolutionary, the third and final book in the Anomaly series.
Revolutionary wraps up Thalli’s story perfectly, but doesn’t cut back on the action and adventure that can be found throughout all three books. Krista McGee does a fantastic job of keeping her readers engaged, while also providing the reader with a little refresher of Anomaly and Luminary by mentioning things that have happened in the past. This really helps, especially if it’s been awhile since reading the previous book. I didn’t feel like I needed to go back and figure out what she was talking about, which allowed a nice flow and rhythm to the storyline.
By reading all three books in the series, I was able to see Thalli grow and mature into this strong young woman who overcomes so much in her young life. She wasn’t dealt an easy hand at life, but took hold of her life and was able to turn bad situations into good. There is so much love in this story. It’s apparent throughout the pages and even leaked in between the lines. I loved watching Thalli’s relationship with the Designer develop and blossom. Sure, she faltered at times, but allowed those positive influences around her to continue to encourage her in her growth and journey.
If you enjoy science fiction and dystopian novels, you’re sure to enjoy this thrilling and uplifting trilogy by Krista McGee. All three books are beautifully written and explore science and faith. Revolutionary summed up the series in an action packed and beautiful way.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
