The story continues as she faces increasing conflict at the Resistance headquarters, while also dealing with her growing romantic feelings toward Chad. When it comes to a decision that will possibly sever their relationship forever, Allira comes to a point where she feels that she has to sacrifice…
I think that overall, this story was okay, but it definitely felt like it dragged on too much, and it did not flow very well. For example, all throughout the first book, Allira is worried about her mother, and totally focused on getting back with her father, but then when she finally is reunited with her family, she immediately ditches them to live with Chad… It didn’t make sense to me. Also, I felt like the story was too long – it could have been cut down maybe 50-100 pages, and that would have made for a better story because much of what happened was very repetitive and time consuming to read. I usually breeze through books in a matter of hours, if the story is interesting and engaging, but this story took me almost a week to finish. I think the author is a good writer and has good ideas, but the story flow needs to be tightened up to make it better.
The plot is intriguing, drawing me in as I learned more about the mysterious Resistance and who is calling the shots, what the Institute is really up to and who's behind it, and what Allira's future has in store for her. There are a lot of layers here, all seamlessly woven in, with more than a couple of twists I never saw coming.
The author deepens the world building in this second go-round, providing further clues to the underpinnings of both the Resistance and the Institute. The world is a bleak place in her dystopian vision, dark and suffocating at times, but with a peek at blue sky promises, if only they survive long enough to experience it.
There is more character development in The Resistance as Allira comes to terms with her fate, uncovers some surprising information about her past, and embraces her feelings for the important people in her life. Drew also goes through a transformation, but I never quite knew where he stands, which makes him still one of my favorite characters in the series.
Top Five Things I Enjoyed About The Resistance
1. The Ending. Once again the ending was not what I expected. It caught me off guard and slammed me into a wall, making me gasp for breath and beg for more!
2. Drew. He continues to evade stereotype. He refuses to allow me to either love or hate him. Instead, he pushes me away, only to pull me back in like a co-dependent lover. Can't wait to see what happens with him in the next book.
3. The Twists. I love when an author can shock me, particularly when the plot twist is a natural evolution of the story.
4. Shate or Tailah. Not sure of the best "ship" name for this couple, but they are adorable.
5. Allira's Determination. Even when she's put in the worst situations, she manages to grit her teeth and find a way to persevere.
The Resistance is a worthy sequel to The Institute, better in almost every way. And The Institute was really good!
I was provided with a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Allira Daniels has found a way out: The Resistance, a community of escaped Defectives and sympathizers far away from the influence of The Institute. But brave Allira can't be satisfied to hide while the Institute spreads their lies, and so she much use her exceptional skills to turn their community into a true Resistance - and take down the Institute once and for all.
Allira is a marvelous heroine, one that most people should be able to identify with. She is surrounded by an exceptional cast of characters, some of whose motivations remain unclear. And without giving anything away, there were several jaw-dropping twists in the story that I just did not see coming.
With plenty of action, drama, suspense and humor, Resistance is a worthy successor to The Institute. I cannot wait for the conclusion to this trilogy!
