Revolution: The New World is a work of fiction in the science fiction genre. It is aimed at mature young adult readers and was penned by author Shemar Frazier. Set in a future vision of Earth ravaged by The Age of Zombies, a group of teenagers venturing outside the safety of their kingdom discover a means for ending the blight of the undead on their world. Unfortunately, those who run the safe zones learn of their discovery and utilize whatever means are necessary to suppress them from telling the rest of the world. The group must now battle against not just the bandits and the undead, but also the same government that previously protected them.
Author Shemar Frazier has crafted a non-stop work of post-apocalyptic fiction with plenty of thrills, action, and interpersonal drama to offer its readers. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was its resonating voice for YA audiences, because Luke, Anna, and the other ensemble cast members really did feel like teens thrown in at the deep end. In terms of this dynamic presentation of character, I found that the use of close narration created a deeper emotional resonance, and the dialogue spoke truthfully to characterize realistic attitudes, bravery, and grit. This makes for a bunch of heroes you can really get behind, and an immense and well-described disaster world for them to try to salvage. Overall, I would highly recommend Revolution: The New World to fans of intense adventures, clever and atmospheric worldbuilding, and to zombie fiction readers everywhere.
