From Sellout to hero, by way of the den. Braxton Luther finds himself in the crossfire of a new order, and discovers apathy is a dangerous option.


I read the the complete The Uncloaked Trilogy by J.Rodes, also known as Jennifer Rodewald in complete succession, without any other books in between. How could I? Once you start this trilogy, starting with The Uncloaked, you will be hooked.

Dark and intense, this dystopian series delved deep into the concept of faith in times of discourse. There's a strong political emphasis as with all dystopian stories. Organizations to rebellions, ramifications of political upheaval to the dismissal of religion, the story begins, but also a tad bit prophetic in what seems to be history repeating itself in different ways. The Uncloaked Trilogy starts with apathy in The Uncloak to the reveal in Tearing the Veil, and eventually the conclusion, the decision and the answer in Charging the Darkness. As in life, even what we presumed the end of the series, a story, there's possibility of more, and that is by choice, of life.

"I'd been so focused on fighting for an identity for myself, to be somebody, that I'd taken the identity of a monster I hadn't understood."(351, Tearing the Veil)

The Uncloaked Trilogy will challenge your belief system, will question your faith, and encourage you to see life, in more than one perspective, or at least deeper. Will you fight for your faith?

"I'd fight before I'd bend."(3, The Uncloaked)


On a final and side note, I read the paperback version, and it would benefit with some visual revisit. There were several spelling errors, and the font was double the size of ones you see on a typical novel.

For my review policy, please see my Disclosure page.



Jennifer Rodewald is passionate about the Word of God and the powerful vehicle of story. Four kids and her own personal superman make her home in southwestern Nebraska delightfully chaotic.

Born in Colorado, she experienced both the seclusion of rugged mountain living and the busy streets of a Denver suburb during her growing up years. Somewhere in the middle of college, she married a Husker and found her way back to the quiet lifestyle of a rural area, which suits just fine.

Blessed with a robust curiosity, Jen loves to research. Whether she’s investigating the history of a given area, the biography of a Christian icon, or how nature declares the glory of God, her daily goal is to learn something new. Aiming to live with boundless enthusiasm, her creed is vision, pursuit, and excellence.

Jen lives and writes in a lovely speck of a town where she watches with amazement while her children grow up way too fast, gardens, and marvels at God’s mighty hand in everyday life.
