Liberation

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.

The Shed

The Shed is a suspenseful young adult novel and is the first installment of the Liberation trilogy authored by M.C Ronen. This chilling dystopian story revolves around Sunny and her seemingly apocalyptic community called Nature’s farm. Sunny lives in blissful ignorance, governed by strict rules and occasional raids. Her innocent bubble bursts when she discovers a disturbing revelation of what goes on in The Shed: a place off-limits to younger children on the farm. Stomach-churning secrets surround the shed that Sunny and her friend begin to uncover as they begin to explore forbidden areas on the farm.

With this gripping tale, M.C Ronen delivers powerful writing that will chill you to the core. The author’s use of detailed descriptions creates graphic images that will forever be stuck in the mind of readers. I found certain parts of this story unnerving, adding to the dystopian feel. This thrilling story is quite the page-turner, and I found myself flying through the pages.

The author is excellent at character development. The character of Sunny starts out as this naïve girl and develops into a strong independent thinker who starts to question her surroundings. With a strong intuition, Sunny can sense when danger is near and uses this to her advantage to survive the raid that attacks the farm in the opening chapter.

The story progresses smoothly, and the tension remains until the very end. M. C Ronen keeps the reader wondering what is going to happen next. Unfortunately, when the story ends, readers will be left waiting for the second book in this series to find out what happens to Sunny’s character.

The Shed is a shocking and unpredictable dystopian novel. Readers will be taken into a dark and thrilling world where women must fight for their very survival. Older teens and young adults will find this to be a suspenseful read and find it hard to put down.
