Description [contains spoilers for Book 1]
Beyond the fence. I am still alive. Barely.
My name is Ivy Westfall. I am sixteen years old and a traitor. Three months ago, I was forced to marry the president's son, Bishop Lattimer - as all daughters of the losing side of the war are sold off in marriage to the sons of the winners. But I was different. I had a mission-to kill Bishop.
Instead, I fell in love with him.
Now I am an outcast, left to survive the brutal savagery of the lands outside of civilization. Yet even out here, there is hope. There is life beyond the fence. But I can't outrun my past. For my actions have set off a treasonous chain of events in Westfall that will change all of our fates-especially Bishop's.
And this time, it is not enough to just survive...

Praise for the Book
"This sequel picks up right where book #1 left off and the excitement lasts throughout the entire book. [...] There were some unexpected twists and turns in this book and that just made it a better read. Once again, Engel has crafted a story filled with action, romance and humor. I highly recommend this series to high school students and adults." ~ Melissa A. Palmer
"This was everything I had hoped for in a sequel. It was just as action packed as the first book and continued on the fast paced storyline that I fell in love with! The Revolution of Ivy takes off right where the first one ended and we are thrown right back into this crazy adventure." ~ Bookworm
"Engel does a good job in creating her characters. The novel is dense with emotion and action without being wordy. I loved Bishop's character and appreciated that all of the young adults were not stereotypes but individual people. The story was tense and tender, sad and, if not happy, at least warm in parts. This is a good read, and worth the time I spent on it." ~ booklass
"Both the primary and secondary characters in The Revolution of Ivy have great depth; they are multi-layered. This is an exciting tale from beginning to end. The reader will find romance and humor mixed in with action and adventure. The plot is fast paced. This is a beautifully written series. I look forward to reading more books by author Amy Engel." ~ Annie
"The Revolution of Ivy is a breathtaking, beautiful and satisfying ending to this love story between two star-crossed lovers whose faith and intense love for each other helped them overcome all obstacles in their path." ~ Kris

About the Author
Amy Engel was born in Kansas and after a childhood spent bouncing between countries (Iran, Taiwan) and states (Kansas; California; Missouri; Washington, D.C.), she settled in Kansas City, Missouri, where she lives with her husband and two kids. Before devoting herself full-time to motherhood and writing, she was a criminal defense attorney, which is not quite as exciting as it looks on TV. When she has a free moment, she can usually be found reading, running, or shoe shopping. The Book of Ivy is her debut YA novel.
