Glistening Rebellion by Jill Cooper
Glistening Rebellion by Jill Cooper is the sequel (Book 2) to Glistening Haven. This entire series is set in the future in a time when society has attempted to make everything beautiful and perfect. But, we all know that perfect just isn’t possible. Here’s a bit more information about this series and the books included. So, if you enjoy dystopian fiction, check them out.
Glistening Haven (Book 1)
A sexy dystopian novel, The Glistening Haven is set in the future where society’s attempt for beauty and perfection nearly destroyed it. Murder, sex, duplicity, and drama join us in the world of New Haven 56.
Susan Monroe doesn’t ask for much: good grades from her children, a house with room for a pool, to be the best Tupperware party host in New Haven 56.
But inside her tranquil 1950s styled community, a monster lurks. A monster that lives inside Susan, and every one of her superficially perfect neighbors, held in check by the oppressive police state that rules over them. Buy it now. This story takes place before Glistening Rebellion.
Glistening Rebellion (Book 2)
In Glistening Haven, Jenna Morgan fought to uncover a government conspiracy. In Glistening Rebellion, she fights for her life. New Haven 57 is opening for businessâ€”bigger landscape, nicer homes, and tougher reconditioning techniques that will make resistant glistenings docile. A caravan of glistenings from overcrowded concentration camps are en route to their new home.
For Jenna Morgan itâ€™s the final job before she retires forever to a happy low key life. When the escaped glistenings from New Haven 56 attack, a simple transportation job turns into life or death. Jenna does the unspeakable and is pulled back into a fight she wants no part of. With an assassin on her tail, her loyalties are questioned. She will need to decide once and for all, which side sheâ€™s on as she teeters on the brink of full out war. If Glistening Rebellion sounds like your kind of book, Buy it now.
Glistening Swarm (Book 3)
This story takes places after Glistening Rebellion. Manâ€™s reign is over. Now fear the day of the dragon. The human resistance bands togetherâ€”to fight for their very survival. Staying ahead of the glistenings led by the savage Victor is their top priority, but as the children they have sought to protect fall ill, their days are numbered.
Fighting is their only chance of survival and itâ€™s one that the passive glistening, Jake Monroe, has been dreading for over a year. Jake will have no choice but to meet the dragons head on. No matter the cost, no matter the personal sacrifice. What happens when a dragon first tastes blood? Find out in Glistening Swarm, an adult dystopian where Jurassic Park meets the Walking Dead.
You can find Books 1 and 2 (Glistening Rebellion) on Amazon. Book 1 (Haven) is available as a paperback. Book 2 (Rebellion) is available as an eBook or as a mass market paperback. And, Book 3 is no longer available on Amazon.
