After reading the first part of M. C Ronen’s Liberation trilogy, The Shed, it felt right to proceed to the second part. The story picks up immediately after Sunny escapes from Nature’s farm. We get insight into her life after she’s recruited by DaSLiF, an activist organization with the sole purpose of liberating enslaved people.
Leaving her past behind, Sunny strives to get acquainted with her new reality, but she is still haunted by nightmares from her past, particularly Jacqueline Roth. Roth is the reformed nature’s farm soldier responsible for her mother’s death, and Sunny is convinced that this former assassin is not all she appears to be.
Liberation by M. C Ronen is an independent read, so if you’ve not read part one, you will not be lost when reading this book. M. C Ronen carefully refills all the loopholes from part one. However, I recommend reading it for better context.
The author creates a world where all forms of slave exploitation are legal, a symbolic representation of animal exploitation in the real world. The brutal conditions these enslaved people find themselves in emphasize the cruelty of humanity. Readers’ discretion is, however, advised for young readers as the book contains detailed scenes of horrific experiences that could be triggering.
Another commendable element of Liberation is Sunny’s character development. She undeniably evolves from a dairy slave to an activist while balancing an ordinary life as a teenage girl. She confronts her fears, although not without a few missteps. M. C Ronen crafts an empathic character, making us feel the apprehension of the protagonist.
Liberation is a suspenseful dystopian novel that will leave readers with much to think about. The dynamic characters and drama of fighting for freedom will have readers waiting for the third installment to see how things end.
