The sequel—and conclusion—to Sarah Crossan’s Breathe. Three teen outlaws must survive on their own in a world without air, exiled outside the glass dome that protects what’s left of human civilization. Gripping action, provocative ideas, and shocking revelations in a dystopian novel that fans of Patrick Ness and Veronica Roth will devour.
Bea, Alina, and Quinn are on the run. They started a rebellion and were thrown out of the pod, the only place where there’s enough oxygen to breathe. Bea has lost her family. Alina has lost her home. And Quinn has lost his privileged life. Can they survive in the perilous Outlands? Can they finish the revolution they began? Especially when a young operative from the pod’s Special Forces is sent after them. Their only chance is to stand together, even when terrible circumstances force them apart. When the future of human society is in danger, these four teens must decide where their allegiances lie. Sarah Crossan has created a dangerous, and shattered society in this wrenching, thought-provoking, and unforgettable post-apocalyptic novel.
So I loved Breathe the first in the series, It was new and unique for me to the Dystopian Genre, however Resist didn’t stick with me as much, I read this book back at the start of the year and somehow forgot that I read it, and started again.
Just as action packed and gripping as Breathe with most conclusions I found it lacking, there were heartbreaking scenes as well as triumph, much loved characters lost their lives, and apart from these scenes that stick in my memory I can’t manage to draw out the rest of the story, which really makes me think that I really didn’t enjoy it all that much. So for now I am writing my notes on what I remember, I may re-read the books in the future and update my review but really I have so many other stories to read it may take a while.
I am rating Resist at 3 hearts because the parts I remember of the book, did stick with me It was also a enjoyable read but in the end failed to live up to Breathe.
