Publisher's Summary

Blythe Sol never would have thought she would become the face of the Restoration Resistance. Yet, that is just what has happened now that the battle lines have been drawn. With the movement sweeping the United States, the stakes are higher than ever as President Drummond continues to prove his dedication to the destruction of the bionics and all who stand with them.
As anger and frustration among the American people reaches the boiling point, citizens begin to fight back, many showing their support for the bionics despite the personal costs to themselves. As protests turn violent, and people who once cowered in silence begin to fight back, the government continues its practices that fly in the face of the very principles the nation was founded upon.
Despite the many losses it has sustained, the Resistance stands strong, leading America into revolution and onward toward change. With an unlikely, ragtag family of misfits at its forefront, the Resistance stands, while a girl who lost everything continues to fight for a future that was once impossible, but may now be within her reach.

Great Sequel

Would you consider the audio edition of The Resistance to be better than the print version?

Only have listened not read, but I prefer audiobooks, as the characters come to life in a new way.


What other book might you compare The Resistance to and why?

There were references to a 'flame' and the resistance 'igniting' and 'catching fire'. Oftentimes I found myself noticing the similarities between The Resistance and the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire.


What about Marissa Clay’s performance did you like?

I enjoy listening to a narrator that can seamlessly transfer voices, both male and female. Marissa Clay's performance was so well done that I often forgot that it was a female offering the narration of the story.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Hope lies with the Resistance


Any additional comments?

This was a great sequel to the original bionics book. It was more sexually and violently graphic than the first book, but the scenes were necessary to the story line and did not detract in any way.

This audio book was graciously provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review

Great addition to the series

Any additional comments?

This is a series that is worth your time. Very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable.

Great continuation of the story. This installment pulled me in from the start just as the first book did. This book is packed full of action, suspense and intrigue with so many twists you're never sure what is going to happen next. This is not a stand alone book, you need to start at the beginning to understand all that is going on in the story.

What will our world be like in 2000 years? Think of all the advancements in the last 100 years. With all the leaps in modern technology it could very well resemble a scenario similar to this story in some ways. Which really makes you stop and think. If we apply all that knowledge what would the repercussions be?

If you had the chance to save a loved one or yourself from death through the science of bionics would you? Then if they or you suddenly became enemy number one to the government what would you do?

Form a Resistance and do the only you can do, fight back the any way you can. Even if that means teaming up with the enemy.

The story is told through multiple POV's keeping you up to date of what is going on simultaneously with all the characters who are in different places. The characters, their backgrounds and the plot are more developed and is getting even more complex in this book. Which just adds to the overall enjoyment.

Once again Marissa Clay does a great job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Her voice sounds age appropriate for the characters. Really good character voices. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. She was able to bring the characters and story to life through her narration.

There are some audio quality issues. Recording sounds hollow. There is also some background noise. Not quite sure what it is. Kind of a clicking. Didn’t notice it until chapter 12. Once I noticed it, it became annoying and distracted me from the story when ever it occurred. Chapter 24, repeated line.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.
