Editorial Reviews


★★★★ Trumpery Resistance by J. Steven Young is a politically charged sci-fi thriller set in the year 2169, a century and a half after the "Unifying Event" destroyed half the country and allowed the president to declare a period of everlasting martial law. Now called the New Republic, America has become a dictatorship, and a distorted caste system keeps everyday citizens in check. Any who dissent are taken in for questioning--and never seen from again. MacKenzie Dillon is an Enforcer, a member of this new system's violent, militaristic police force. Reconditioned as a child, MacKenzie has never stopped to ask how things ended up this way. But as he begins to wake up to the wickedness of the world around him, he gets recruited by a growing rebel force whose ultimate goal is to fish out and destroy the wormy dictator at the rotted apple's core--the President of the United States.

This is a timely read for anyone who is starting to feel the anxiety of election season creeping up on them. Through animated allegory, Trumpery Resistance tackles the overwhelming feeling of helplessness that many have experienced after viewing the current administration's actions these past few years. Young offers particular insight into the LGBTQ community's world--MacKenzie is gay and must hide it out of fear of reprisal--but readers will also encounter injustices committed against women, the disabled, and ethnic minorities. While all of this might sound bleak, perhaps the most surprising thing about Trumpery Resistance is that its characters can find hope in even the darkest of circumstances. Young seems to be saying that, if they can do it, then, with luck, people who feel marginalized by modern politics will find the strength to fight another day.

Redcity Review

From the Inside Flap

MacKenzie Dillon serves as a protectorate soldier in the New Republic, a new order that was created from the ravaged mind of a leader who had long ago given up his sanity. Now the New Republic is protected by a wall that keeps out everything that exists in the Wastes and keeps everything within it subjected to the severest restrictions of freedom and mental conditioning.

But MacKenzie is having flashbacks from his youth. The conditioning he has undergone is failing and with it comes a new realization that he is not what he thought he was. Confused by the change in circumstances, he takes on a role that allows him to infiltrate the resistance.

There he uncovers the real reasons behind America's decline and the formation of the New Republic. But there's yet more. A secret Caste called the Omega who really controls everything, the truth about the destruction of half the country and a deadly plot that has been set in motion against neighboring nations.

MacKenzie's quest for the truth and justice is just beginning. But is the way of the resistance any better than what the nation already has?
