    One thought on “Revelation (Unchained, #3)”

    1. This is the final book in the Unchained Trilogy, a multi generational novel which predominately focused on the grand daughter of Daniel and Lori Taylor, an abolitionist and ex slave Selina has been brought up by her famous actress mother Lavinia This tells of her tale and there is a return to earlier Christian themes Whilst the author has taken great pains to explain the reasoning for this series, it was not well executed in this last installment It was meant to be set in the early twentieth cen [...]

    2. NOT YET COMPLETE My review is for the entire trilogy It is also not critically based, but is a pure emotive response to the saga and the nature of it I felt so much whilst reading these books, and I cried like a baby, no I ugly cried numerous times Firstly, given the current climate with race relations, this story was so bittersweet It was cruel but at times beautiful, utterly heartwrenching but at times heartbreaking, some of the characters Lavinia for one, and even Selina despite her acknowled [...]

    3. This was an enjoyable series Again, the only criticism I have is the giant leaps of time that the author skips over There s a 65 year lapse in this book so you re introduced into a whole new family I would ve rather had another book.

    4. Great story concept Unfortunately still applicable today Simple writing, for sure Could use a few passes across an editor s eye, though.

    5. Really Enjoyed but FrustratingThis is the third book in a series, this has been one of the most emotionally frustrating books I think because as an African American I was ticked that the characters were ashamed of who she was a bla k woman.

    6. Revelation Book Three of the Unchained Trilogy is by Maria McKenzie This book ends the story of the Taylor Standish family I do believe it is the best of the entire series as it brings everything to a close Sabrina Standish was four when her parents divorced Her Father married their Mother s sister, Aunt Olivia, and they lived in California Her Mother, Lavinia Standish, was an actress who lived in New York City When she was eight, she went to spend three weeks with her Mother in New York City wh [...]

    7. The awakening, Revelation, or simply the TruthI have always been told the truth will set you free In the case of Selina, it was a burden of bondage she carried for a century The innocent victim of a inner racial marriage that occurred during the time of slavery Sorry but love never takes into account of the hardships that may be vested upon the offspring of that love We can t change our ancestry Life is hard no matter what our ethnicity may be I was moved by each character in the Unchained Trilo [...]

    8. Good readI personally liked the first two books better This book I saw dysfunction than about the color of one s skin The ending seemed a little rush and the story slowed down quite a bit Overall this is a good read.

    9. Couldn t put it downWhat can be said of a book, or three books that made me leave off doing my housework and ignoring family and my dog until I finally finished it I hated for it to end She is a world class story teller More please.

    10. Read the trilogyIt was a good book, but I was a little disappointed that it skipped lots of years in between the chapters.

    11. Revelation the third book.Maria McKenzie the author of the unchanged trilogy writes quite a story of race It was very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyed.
