Here's My #102th Teaser Tuesday From THE UPRISING!

The Uprising #2

The Uprising (The Forsaken, #2)THE UPRISING

Published: August 6th, 2013
Genres: Young Adult, Dystopian

In this dystopian sequel to The Forsaken, Alenna has survived the brutality of life on the wheel—and now she’s going back for more.
Alenna escaped. It was expected that she would die on the wheel, the island where would-be criminals are sent as directed by the UNA—the totalitarian supercountry that was once the United States, Mexico, and Canada. But Alenna and her boyfriend, Liam, made it to safety. Except safety, they will soon learn, is relative.

In order to bring down the UNA, they must first gain control of the wheel. If the mission succeeds, the wheel will become a base of revolution. But between betrayals, a new Monk leading a more organized army of Drones, and the discovery of a previously unknown contingent, Alenna, Liam, and their allies might be in over their heads. One thing Alenna knows for sure: There will be a reckoning. And not everyone she loves will make it out alive.

~ CHAPTER 13 ~ PAGES 185-186 ~
Octavio leaps three steps forward and grabs the drone by the throat, crushing his larynx with his strong fingers. The third drone tries to run. Octavio whips a knife off the belt of the strangled drone and throws it at him. Th knife hits directly in the center of the drone's back, and he goes straight down t the ground as the crowd parts.

I'm stunned. Within two seconds, Octavio has defeated—and killed—all three of the drones.

~ CHAPTER 22 ~ PAGES 298-299 ~
"I did spare one life!" the Monk cries out. "Behold!"

As he speaks, a group of four drones drags a wicker cage forward. An old man wearing a tight leather leash is inside. I instantly recognize him as Dr. Barrett. His hands and feet are bound, and circular red wounds dot his grizzled, bearded face. His eyes burn with complete rage. I feel sick. Death would be a better fate than this.
"I keep Dr. Barrett alive as a reminder of the failure of science over faith," the Monk sneers.
"You're a demon!" Cass yells at him, revolted.
