Resist by Sarah Crossan
Resist by Sarah Crossan is the sequel to Breathe. We meet up with our heroes where we last left them, escaping from the riots. Alina and the gang are off to look for the other resistance cell, while Quinn, Bea, and Jazz are on their way to find the group. This book was cut into 4 perspectives: Quinn, Alina, Bea, and Ronan (the leader’s son). I would have to say that it is full of surprises, secrets, and redemption. Characters that were terrible in the first book look different in this novel, and characters that you do not expect to lose will go. Was I terribly please by this book? No, sometimes Bea was too annoying: I get it, you lost your family… but so did everyone else within a 40 mile radius. And if people didn’t die off in the first book, just wait because there is enough time in the second book for that to happen. Ronan was a nice change of pace, I forget if there was fourth person’s POV in the first book, but even so it was good to see the perspective of one of the elites during this revolution, and he working along with Quinn’s father makes things interesting.
Thank You Edelweiss! 3/5 stars.
