Hello again everyone, Paul here today. I am quite excited to be a part of YA author Jessica Jaster’s Delta Project: Revolt Blog Tour. I am a big fan of Jessica’s and consider her a friend. I have read the first two books in the series Delta Project: Hide and Delta Project: Rescue. You can read my review of Hide here and Rescue here. Before I get to my thoughts on the third and final book in the series, let’s take a look at the Goodreads Blurb:

D005 has been a part of a secret government program known as the Delta Project her entire life. She has been genetically modified to be stronger, faster, smarter and to heal faster. Trained in hand-to-hand combat, weaponry and battle tactics, she has been worked to physical and mental exhaustion every day of her life. Raised without love or care of any kind, she has no idea what it means to be happy – to be free. And now she has run away.

After willingly leaving the Hartman Ranch and Cormac, in order to protect those she loves, Weston is back at the Delta Project compound. Back exactly where she does not want to be. On the plus side, it’s not a bad place to be if she wants to free the rest of the Deltas.

However, it also means she’s under Commander’s thumb again. And he has questions he is willing to go to great lengths to get answered.

The thing that Commander doesn’t understand is just how much Weston wants her freedom back. And with her back at the compound, he’s going to have a fight on his hands.

Now for a bit about author Jessica Jaster:

Jessica Jaster lives in Iowa with her husband and her (currently) one year old and two year old, as well as their cat, Pandora.

She has always had an over-active imagination and has been making stories up in her head for herself for as long as she can remember and finally decided to start writing them down (when she is not busy chasing the two little ones around anyway) and sharing them with anyone interested. Most ideas she has so far for her novels are for young adults – some fantasy, some science fiction and some normal contemporary story-lines.

Her current works include Delta Project: Hide, DeltaProject: Rescue and Delta Project: Revolt.

What I liked best: As with the first two books I like Weston. She is a great lead character; strong, vulnerable, funny, tough, caring, you get the point. In Revolt, Weston finds herself in a new situation. She is back at the Delta Project, but instead of being familiar with her surroundings and routines it all feels foreign. This is due to Weston’s growth as a person, something I have taken great joy in reading. Weston faces challenges like none she has ever faced and the stakes are higher than ever. I can’t tell you much more than that without spoiling anything, but Weston fans you won’t be disappointed.

What missed a bit: The ending. Honestly, I thought (for some reason) this was the final installment, but it obviously isn’t. Which leads me to my all-to-familiar thoughts about cliffhangers. I don’t like them. Jessica has done this to me three times now, and the real problem is that I can’t wait to see what happens next, but have to.

Overall: Another great chapter in Weston’s life. I have to mention that I thought this book had more romance than the previous two. I didn’t mind even though that’s usually not my thing; probably because I enjoy the Delta Project characters so much. ****SPOILER BEGINS**** I had a wee bit of trouble accepting the fact that Mac and his “gang” were able to get inside Delta as guards, but it still worked for me. ****SPOILER ENDS**** I really enjoyed Weston in this book. She was the main focus and that is just fine with me. If you were wondering, I am hooked and now I have to wait for the next book to see what happens to all of my friends. For all you Jessica Jaster and Delta Project fans out there, be sure to pick up this book. If you haven’t read any of the Delta Project books yet, do yourself a favor and start with book 1; you won’t be sorry.
