The second book in Sarah Negovetich's Acceptance series, Rite of Revelation, begins just shortly after the events in book 1 and is just as gripping and interesting as the first book. After trying to tell the outside world of the truth behind the PIT and the people who are sent there, Rebecca becomes the cardinal's target. With the help of someone who betrayed her, she and some of her friends manage to escape the PIT. And soon she learns that many things the cardinal told the people have been a lie. There is a world she never knew about. There are other people who have escaped the PIT, and there are people who do not conform to the cardinal's rules. But can Rebecca just start a new life and leave the innocent people in the PIT behind, knowing that they, too, did nothing wrong?

I enjoyed reading Rite of Revelation just as much as I enjoyed the first book in the Acceptance series - even though I am not a fan of series and books that end in cliffhangers. Rebecca continues to grow from being a girl - who believed everything about her society was right and good - into a woman who knows that she and everybody else have been duped. The development of the characters is realistic, as is the behavior of the people in power. The plot is logical and well constructed. You do not know how things will turn out because the characters are unpredictable - and this is the kind of series in which people die, even good ones.
