Six weeks after her arrival on the Surface, Evelyn Winters is no closer to unlocking the memories lost in her subconscious than she was when she first came. Isolated in a strange new society, Evie has only Gavin Hunter to remind her of who she once was.

But even with a clean slate, it’s easy to see that Evie doesn’t fit in on the Surface. And as her differences make her feel more and more alone, she can’t help but yearn for that place she doesn’t remember: the isolated city hidden in the depths of the ocean. Elysium. Home.

But she can’t exactly tell Gavin what she’s feeling. Not when he’s the one who helped her escape Elysium in the first place, and has the scars to prove it. Though the doctors say otherwise, Gavin believes that Evie just needs time. And if her memories don’t come back, well, maybe she’s better off not remembering her past.

But the decision may be out of their hands when Evie’s ever-elusive memories begin to collide with reality. People and images from her past appear in the most unlikely places, haunting her, provoking her…and making her seem not only strange but dangerous.

Evie and Gavin can’t wait around for her memories to return. They’ll have to journey across the Outlands of the Surface to find help, and in the end, their search may just lead them back to the place it all started…

Ok I loved RENEGADE with a fiery passion and dare I say it but I think REVELATIONS was EVEN BETTER! J.A. Souders has created one of the creepiest villains I've ever read. Mother is crazy! I will admit I kind of missed her in this second installment in the Elysium Series but we got to meet a new possibly worse bad guy jury's still out on that...

I was so happy to get back into Evie and Gavin's story and it was so cool to be on the surface for this one. We get to see where Gavin lives and meet his family and his friends. There's one person in particular that we meet whom I fell head over heels in love with too! His name is Asher and Gavin hates him but, he helps out with Evie in ways that Gavin just couldn't and I love that instead of being overbearing and shielding Evie from things he was honest and a bit of a smart ass. He made me smile and laugh even during some tough situations.

J.A has written another book that will make my top 10 list of the year and I highly suggest if you love a Sci-Fi that has an awesome villain and a great love story you should read this series!

I chose an Asher excerpt well because I love him lol

"Weak?" He laughs. "You think you're weak? You totally kicked ass! The way you took care of those vulture-hawks was like something out of a comic book."

I lift my brows at him. "You make that sound like it's a good thing, when all it does is make me a...freak." That was one of Gavin's little brother's words. It was a word he liked to use. A lot. I'd made him tell me what it meant and, ever since, I'd known it applied to me.

Anger flashes across Asher's eyes and he takes my face in his hands, forcing me to look at him. "You are not a freak. You hear me? 'Different' doesn't make you a freak. 'Different' makes you special. And special is good. Special is what makes you 'you'. That's who Gavin loved. He thought you were amazing and wonderful and...perfect just the way you are."
