Author: Marta Moran Bishop
Main character description (short).
There are three main characters in this book. Jewell who holds the prophecy to chart us on a new course and bring hope to the world. Ben (her father) who has been her protector. And Jamie (who with the help of those he recruited implemented a plan to be put in place after Jewell had torn down the walls between the rich and poor.
Dawn Rises the sequel to The Divide Series brings us hope after fifteen years of despair. When all rights were taken away from women, children, and anyone who was not rich and white. The suburbs and small towns destroyed, the rich walled themselves into the upper town with clean water, electricity, heat, domes that kept the city air clean, and pushed everyone else into the lower towns to live in tenements designed to house multiple families, though women were no longer allowed out of the house or even to meet, and men of different races no longer mixed.
But all had the same fate, at six the boys were all taken away to apprentice, and at fifteen into the military. If they survived fifteen years in the military most were given a wife and a job in the company owned factories.
But a prophecy was to be fulfilled according to Rebecca’s words as she died for to give them a chance, that a girl child would be born who would be able to draw in the magic that would free the world.
How and what happens is in Dawn Rises the sequel to this dystopian series. It might be a future we face. It is a cautionary tale.
Turning to the crowd she said. “Fifteen years ago, I stood before many of you and made a prophecy. Today that prophecy has come true. My daughter Jewell has brought us all with her into the between times and opened the door for us to build a new world.
When women were made breeding animals, books were burned, and all but the rich were denied education. Sent to labor in sweat shops, shipped off to fight in yet another war. The poor separated from each other and kept poor and uneducated; it was then our society died.
But we can and will build a new and better one together and the true American dream will spread across the land and the world.”
