"In this sequel to Remake (2014), Todd writes a cinematically drawn, well-paced story set in the South Pacific. A major arc involving richly written Pacific Islanders breaks up the relentless whiteness of Freedom 1, and there are a number of well-rounded disabled characters, including Theron . . . Speculative fiction with a 'family values' spin." -Kirkus Reviews

Now, I was super excited to get invited to this tour because I really enjoyed the first book in this series. REMAKE. If you haven't read it, pick both books up. They are great.
I had a scenario in my head already when I started this book (go to above statement ;)), and as I started reading this wonderful book, the story starts to unfold in a way I was totally not expecting. Well, some yes, others no.
The book came to life right away. I watched as the words brought the whole world back to the front of my mind. After Nine, and Theron get "remade" something happens, and Nine doesn't come back from her Remake.
Theron is introduced to a new trade. We get to meet new characters, that are just as wonderful as the previous characters. Ilima, is a beautiful writer. I loved how she brought these new characters in and the roles they play.
Theron is devastated that Nine is gone and cannot seem to find a way to get her out of his mind. When introduced to his new trade, things begin to change for him, in a way Theron was not expecting. Regardless of whether or not he will ever see Nine again, he decides to go into this new trade and do the best he can. He meets Catcher. There is way more to Catcher than meets the eye,
While this story unfolds into the wonderful story it is, I was again taken into a scenario I indeed did not expect. It was fantastic. I cannot wait for the next book to come out. In the mean time I am going to have to "write" my own version so I don't dream about it every night.
Ilima's world, story, writing, and character building is fantastic. I do not think you will be disappointed if you pick this series up.
Having been rescued, Remade, and returned to Freedom, Theron must now face a life without Nine. Though he’s chosen to be a healer, he uses all the vices Freedom affords to try and dull the pain of losing Nine. But he can’t find the peace he so desperately needs. Until he meets Catcher, a man who shows him the dark truths behind Freedom’s Batcher program. From him, Theron learns what it means to be a leader and a father. When he falls in love with a captured rebel named Pua, Theron must choose: Freedom and its easy pleasures, or a life that is truly free but full of hardships and decisions.
I loved Theron so much in Remake. I ached for him at the end of the book, so I was excited to see that he was the main character in Resist. He's definitely not in a good place at the beginning of the book. But an unusual case where Theron show his fast thinking and ingenuity leads him to the underbelly of Freedom and exposes things that even Nine hadn't know about.
Once again, this story dwells heavily on the surface pleasures our modern society offers, that also encourage our own selfishness. And how fulfilling having a family can be. Of being a mother or a father, a sister or a brother. The people of Freedom know nothing of this. They don't bond with each other like a family would.
The ending was cliffhangerish, but it wasn't a "literal" cliff-hanging event. Their circumstances are dire, but there's also hope.
At the end of Remake, I really hoped that Kai's sister Pua might be a good love interest for Theron. Todd did not disappoint me. :D
