Review: Complication (Chronicles of the Uprising Book 2) by K.A. Salidas


Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Magistrate, Mira travels west, toward the coast. With three weakened human fugitives accompanying her, she searches for the mythical land of Sanctuary. 

After encountering a pack of wolf shifters, headed by the charismatic—and brazen—Stryker, Mira learns that Sanctuary is real after all. Caldera Grove: home of the Otherkin. Hidden in the mouth of a dormant volcano, it has protected its residents from humans since the early days following the great cataclysm. For Mira— a vampire— Caldera Grove is a land of peace; an escape from the relentless persecution of the humans who once enslaved her, and an end to the daily struggle and bloodshed of being a gladiator. 

For the humans accompanying her, Caldera Grove means death. Humans, greedy and untrustworthy creatures, are destroyed before they can penetrate its borders. 

To plead her case for entry into Caldera, Mira must abandon her companions, albeit temporarily, and follow Stryker into the heart of the city. What she finds within Caldera Grove presents her with an unenviable decision between her own desires for freedom and peace, or honor and the human companions who risked it all for her. 


What a great adventure. I started reading and just couldn’t put it down. I was up all night, because I got so caught up in this book that time just slipped away.  I find it all so intriguing. Katie Salidas has done a wonderful job on this vampire tale. I love the unexpected twist in Complication. At times I would think I had it all figured out and then I would be hit with something I didn’t expect. I just love how some of the characters can overcome generations of prejudice between their species to save the lives of the other. Mira is my favorite character. She stands for what she believes in and doesn’t back down, even though her mouth gets her into a world of trouble.  She has spirit that can’t be broken. The description of the Sanctuary was amazing, so magical. I could see it all in my head and it is beautiful.  I can’t wait to see what happens next, where this journey will take Mira from here. Now I’m even starting to wonder about a possible love interest in her life.

In Complication the Mira and her companions hit the road in search of a sanctuary, while battling to stay out of reach of their pursuers. Danger lies ahead and behind. What can they do to survive? Mira discovers the sanctuary at last. What she finds there is beyond what she could have ever imagined, but there is one problem. No human can know where it is and will be killed before they can enter. So she is left to decide where her loyalties lie. Can she leave her companions to die for a chance at the life she always believed she wanted?
