Truth is a powerful weapon...but explosives never hurt.

Sophia can run but she can't hide. RedZone is on her tail and those of the six tech-augmented soldiers who escaped its clutches with her. If she could only focus on fighting her way to safety, she might live long enough to disappear. But it's not just her own backside she needs to watch out for.

At her side is her boyfriend, Kyle. He's the reason she found the courage to escape, and she'll do anything to keep him and his secrets out of RedZone's hands. Only problem is, since she was once sent to capture him, he has good reason not to trust her.

In fact, there's not much trust to go around. RedZone keeps finding them, suggesting someone is a traitor. And if that's not enough to recapture the group, the organization has a backup plan. One that will force Sophia and Kyle to choose between safety and risking everything one more time.

Warning: Contains killer robots, mutant college students, and dangerous super soldiers. And those are the good guys. It's enough to make a rogue assassin wish she were taking her philosophy final instead.

I loved Revive when I read it last summer – so much so that I broke my rule of not reading any sneak peaks. So I had already started Resist long before I finally picked it up (I missed it’s release because of my stupidly busy life) and was super eager to get on. It did not disappoint.

What Worked:

  • The characters! I seriously love all of them. They’re very complex – you’ve got these people who have been created basically to be super agents but they still have humanity and it’s a battle of those two sides. Humanity seems to be way stronger and I love that about them. Sophia/Seven is a great character and I could spend weeks in her head 🙂
  • The action, once again, did not disappoint. It was pretty non-stop from the word go and when it did slow down and it was for super smart plot development. Tracey Martin knows how to weave a story! I’ll be looking into more of her series for sure.
  • The romance – in that there wasn’t much, but when it was there it felt right, not forced. Sometimes it’s just not about the romance and I like it when an author gets that!

What Didn’t Work :

  • A minor complaint, but the structure of Resist is virtually the same as that of Revive. Sophia has, for some reason we have yet to find out, lost a huge chunk of her memories. So we’re going back and forth as she discovers pieces and remembers. It’s a minor complaint – because clearly the structure works. It’s just a shame it wasn’t a little fresher.
  • Is this the end or not really? There’s plenty of places for the story to continue – or spin off to one of the other members of her unit, like Jordan – but I really can’t tell. Technically it IS the end of the duology, but please please NO! Don’t stop there. Please! I mean it’s this great world with these great characters… why waste them by not continuing? Right?

If there’s more I will most definitely be reading. I have these books as ebooks, but if I ever get a chance to meet Martin I need hardcovers on hand for her to sign. Yes, I liked them that much. I want signed copies. I need them. I do.

About Tracey Martin

Tracey Martin

Tracey Martin grew up outside of Philadelphia, the lucky recipient of a drama-free childhood, which is why she spent so much time reading about other people’s lives. It was while she was working on her doctorate in psychology that she had an epiphany–imaginary people are way more fun than real ones. And so she began writing.

She likes her coffee simple, her music epic, and her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn’t understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets.

Tracey is represented by Michelle Humphrey at the Martha Kaplan Agency and finds referring to herself in the third person to be very weird.

Although she consider herself a hermit, she’s a friendly one.

    This does sound like a great series. While I’ve been actively complaining about never ending series that seem to be around a lot lately, I do agree that two books isn’t enough too. For me, I need either a trilogy or a stand alone. I don’t know why, but I do. It is a weird thing I think. There aren’t many series with only two books. I think the only one I’ve read was one by Shiloh Walker. I hope you get your spin off or something.
