Resist

About the book: Having been rescued, Remade, and returned to Freedom, Theron faces a life without None. Though he's chosen to be a healer, he can't seem to heal himself of his heartbreak. Not even the endless pleasures and vices Freedom offers can dull the pain of losing the only girl he's ever loved. The peace he so desperately needs seems impossible to find.

Then he meets Catcher, who becomes a friend and a mentor and who teaches Theron about the dark truths behind Freedom's Batcher program—and about a growing rebellion known as "the Rise."

Theron's quest for peace and healing is further complicated when he falls in love with a captured rebel named Pua. He must choose: Freedom and its easy pleasures, or a life that is truly free but full of hardships and sacrifice.

My review: I was excited to get to read this new book by Ilima Todd, I really enjoyed Remake. I loved the way that this book is from the point of view of Theron. It's fun to read what happened from his perspective. And I was kind of sad about how things ended for him at the end of Remake.

I have to admit that I still felt bad for him at the beginning of this book. He was very obviously still hurting about losing Nine and Eridian will not allow him to forget her and move on. Eridian seems to think that Theron knows where Nine went and she keeps him on his toes in different ways trying to figure out what he may or may not know.

Theron is a healer, and he's approached by a man named Catcher to help him with a project, little does Theron know that this project will change everything for him, his life, the way he sees their government, his loyalties and even his love. Catcher asks him to talk with a young woman named Pua to try to figure out what might be wrong with her. He eventually does figure it out, but along the way he falls in love with her. I was really amazed by the way that Pua's whole story fit into Theron's. 

I loved the plot of this book. I loved the action, the adventure, the cunning that the characters show, only to find out that they weren't as sneaky as they thought they had been. 

I loved seeing the way life has turned out at this point for Nine and learning just what the reason is for Eridian being so fixated on finding her. 

I really enjoyed this book and I'm hoping to be able to read a third one really soon! I need to know just what happened to all of these amazing characters!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Ilima Todd was born and raised on the north shore of Oahu and currently resides in the Rocky Mountains. She never wanted to be a writer even though she loves books and reading. She earned a degree in physics instead. But the characters in her head refused to be ignored, and now she spends her time writing science fiction for teens. When she is not writing, Ilima loves to spend time with her husband and four children
