Today I bring you the third and final book in the Division Bell Trilogy, “Divided We Stand“, written by Rachel McLean. This Political Thriller was published today, 20th November 2018.
Happy Book Release Day, Rachel!
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Rachel McLean for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and by being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book.
Britain is a country under surveillance. Neighbours spy on neighbours. Schools enforce loyalty to the state. And children are encouraged to inform on their parents.
Disgraced MP Jennifer Sinclair has earned her freedom but returns home to find everything changed.
Rita Gurumurthy has been sent to a high security prison. When a sympathetic guard helps her escape she becomes a fugitive, forced to go into hiding.
To reunite her family and win freedom for her son and her friend, Jennifer must challenge her old colleague and rival, the new Prime Minister Catherine Moore.
Will Catherine listen to reason and remove the country from its yoke of fear and suspicion? Or will Jennifer have to reveal the secret only she knows about Catherine, and risk plunging the country into turmoil?

I’m Rachel McLean and I write thrillers and speculative fiction.
I’m told that the world wants upbeat, cheerful stories – well, I’m sorry but I can’t help. My stories have an uncanny habit of predicting future events (and not the good ones). They’re inspired by my work at the Environment Agency and the Labour Party and explore issues like climate change, Islamophobia, the refugee crisis and sexism in high places. All with a focus on how these impact individual people and families.

If you guy have been following my reviews, you know I don’t like to give that many details when it comes to a series that are very connected, book after book, which is the case of this trilogy. And you also know I have been reading and reviewing all the books in this trilogy.
This was a journey that I enjoyed taking because it was scary real, it felt that way because of Rachel McLean’s writing style. The power she gives to her words and to the characters was something I loved from book one. And reading this one was as an adrenaline rush and quite and intriguing finale book.
We still follow Jennifer Sinclair and we still get to uncover new secrets and new information. And this novel brings twists and turns, action, thrilling moments and that strong group of well written characters that keep develop with each book.
Speaking about the characters… As you have read in the blurb, Jennifer has earned her freedom and returns home. Of course, after everything that went on and after the long months away, the family dynamic is very different. That was something I like to read about because it was something I could relate too, since my dad had three years away working in another country and he could only be with us during the summer and Christmas time. So I know how hard things can be for a family. In this case, it was a harder context and the family had to deal with strong emotions and all the problems that came with the circumstances Jennifer was in.
Overall, I loved this all trilogy. I loved that it felt real, that it was thought provoking. And I loved that it talked about strong subjects and that exposes them to everyone in a brilliantly written novel. I totally recommend this book and all the ones in this trilogy if you like Political Thrillers.
