From Amazon: 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.
What a book! I thoroughly enjoyed RESIST. I previously devoured the first in the series, REMAKE, loving the intriguing take on a society fighting against families and the rebels determined to take the right to families back. RESIST is just pretty much brilliant. I was struck by how the plot and narrative was used to describe families, children, conceiving--just...brilliant. Not sure how else to say it. I loved the way Ms. Todd used her words, so beautiful, touching, and moving. I loved Theron. He was so real, so strong, just great. I cannot WAIT to see how this series ends up.

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
