TRIGGER WARNING: Threat of sexuality "reprogramming".

(Just a threat; it doesn't happen.)

Why is this novel's society advanced enough to create replicas of particular people, yet the Chairman's Heir's sexuality has to be kept secret? Supposedly because of the financial/political benefits of an arranged marriage, and then possible heirs, but I'm not entirely convinced.

Anyway, why did I wait so long to read this RESISTANCE? Possibly because Book 1, REPLICA, is worth five stars, and I worried this wouldn't have the same quality? I shouldn't have been concerned, because RESISTANCE is another five-star read in this amazing trilogy. Early on in the book I had a theory, and it turns out to be correct, but that didn't stop me loving the book, anyway.

And yes, plot convenience seems to trump realism when teens easily overpower their adult adversaries in physical combat, and get away with sneaking around on "sanctuary"/"retreat" grounds.

And Nate Hayes is SO BLOODY ANNOYING in this book, though his opinion later changes somewhat. Can I forgive him because he shows character development by novel's end? I won't entirely, because his thoughts and behaviour in regards to Agnes Belinski are absolutely appalling. The trilogy's world is rather classist, yet what bothers Executive teen Nate the most? Someone who's "not beautiful" (which is the nicest thing said about Agnes's appearance in this novel) and lacks social skills. Oh, but then Nate figures it's good Agnes is meek, because she'll just go along with whatever he says.

Not cool, Nate. Not cool.

By the end of the story, Nate comes to the conclusion that Agnes isn't so bad after all, compared to the novel's villains, but still...

5.0 out of 5 stars What? The second book is better than the first!?! 11 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Five out of five stars
In the sequel to REPLICA, Jenna Black drops us right where we left off. Nate and Nadia know that their small battle was nothing compared to the overall war they are waging with Nate’s father. They are also painfully aware of how precarious their current situation truly is. Nadia knows that she has to protect her sister, and Nate is desperate to protect not just Bishop but Nadia too. This sets the stage for the next thrilling installment of the series. Jenna once again leverages transitioning between Nadia and Nate’s point of view to create the suspense that makes it impossible to put the book down. The overall pace allows for character connection. There is also more focus on the relationships between the characters and character growth. Nadia and Nate are not the same people introduced in REPLICA. Throughout RESISTANCE both of them display how their experiences have changed them.

The best part of any second book is less world and character building and more story telling. That is exactly what Jenna does in this book. She does introduce new characters, but only in an effort to move the story long and help gain momentum throughout the book. There are predictable moments, but there are still surprises especially the end. It will leaving you begging for the third and final book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Resistance (#2 Replica Trilogy) By Jenna Black 24 Feb. 2015
By Melonie B. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book! Very rarely is Book 2 in a series as good as the first one. I think I even liked this one a little better. It starts right where book 1 (Replica) left off and it is action from start to finish....I started the next book the moment I finished the last word. A lot happens and secrets are revealed! Nate and Nadia will have their hands full getting out of the surprise ending of this book. I can't wait to find out!!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 1 Aug. 2015
By Reese's - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Resistance picks up almost immediately where Replica left off. Nate and Nadia think they’ve stopped Nate’s father and the artificial intelligence he created from harming any more people. Sadly nothing is ever that simple. Now Nadia is sending her to a retreat out of embarrassment with no connection to the outside world. When Nate finds out Nadia has been put away and his father tells him he’ll be marrying someone else or else he’ll have his sexuality reprogramed. Now it’s up to him and Dante to help her.

Nate is a complete jerk in this book somewhat. I get why he was upset and it’s not completely out of character since he’s more or less a spoiled brat, but I also felt he grew a lot throughout this story. He gets engaged to a girl named Agnes who I guess is unattractive in a lot of ways. She’s shy and definitely an easy mark for him throughout the book. Nate ends up working with Dante a lot throughout the book and we get to see his boyfriend Kurt again. I definitely love the quips between the three boys in this story since they’re all so jaded and sarcastic.

Nadia is a surprisingly strong character, which is one of the main reasons I ended up liking Replica so much. I wouldn’t usually associate privileged and powerful with strong YA female leads, but Nadia has definitely had a hard go at it. Now she’s stuck in an institution and her life is becoming a downward spiral. Getting news of her broken engagement, her family, and about Nate’s dark secrets aren’t easy for her, but she comes out of this book stronger than ever.

I seriously enjoyed this book a whole lot. I’m nervous about ending this series since I hate endings, but I have a feeling it’ll be epic.

Restistance definitely upped the romance level up a notch. I enjoyed the growing affection between Nadia and Dante. Seriously in my mind Dante is ubber sexy and I’m excited that Nadia will have someone who cares about her.

Oh Agnes. So we’re supposed to not like her because she’s taking Nadia’s place, but I like her a lot. Agnes and Nadia really get along when they meet and I liked how we get to fully understand her character through Nadia’s eyes and from the perspective of a girl who is just doing what needs to be done for her family.

Overall great book, I love the characters, the story, and all the mystery and secrets surrounding this book! Can’t wait for Revolution!

Not cool, Nate. Not cool.

By the end of the story, Nate comes to the conclusion that Agnes isn't so bad after all, compared to the novel's villains, but still... However, Nadia Lake is much nicer about, and towards, Agnes - though this might be counted as Nadia's "save the cat" moment (in scriptwriting terms). Yes, she criticises Agnes's looks, outfits, and behaviour, but only silently. Outwardly, Nadia is much nicer to her.

But Agnes's ill-fitting and unflattering clothes don't make sense, anyway. She's an Executive, so surely her family could afford a stylist, or for someone else to provide her wardrobe? Maybe her lack of style is just another thing that Nate can hold against her.

Admittedly, Nate has reason to not like Agnes (they're being forced into an arranged engagement), but still...that's their parents' fault; not her doing.

These criticisms aside, I loved the book and highly recommend this trilogy.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Freaking Awesome Sci-Fi Read!! 19 Mar. 2014
By Jessica S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having previously read Jenna Black's Replica as an ARC, I thought I would have a hard time getting back into the swing of things with Resistance, but luckily, Jenna has some helpful summaries along the way, that I recalled the gist of things.

We pretty much pick up where we left off, and if you read Replica, you know what an epic ending we had there! Nate and Nadia believe that they have beaten Chairman Hayes and that the replica process has been destroyed. They have evidence against Hayes that should he misstep, they would release the tapes that indicate his crimes. But life is not moving smoothly for Nadia or Nate for that matter.

Nadia's parents have decided to send her to a "retreat" in order to get away from it all...and the media. There are rumors floating around and none of them are good. It is in Nadia's best interests to leave the public limelight, but she is against it. She doesn't want to be locked away, for this spa, is nothing more than a fancy prison.

Nadia's life is about to get even more difficult for Nate's father is calling off their unofficial engagement and giving Nate a new fiancee. This complicates things for Nate as well, for Nadia was his best friend and who knew about his boyfriend and accepted him for who he was. Nadia was willing to live a sham of a marriage with him, but a new girl? Not so much. Plus, Agnes is a plain, meek sort of girl and Nate wants nothing to do with her. He treats her poorly, in an attempt to get her to break off their engagement.

This was a fairly fast-paced read and I was eating up the pages, desperate to see how things turned out. And wow! Resistance was truly a fantastic read! Generally, I'm not one who enjoys the sci-fi type things, but yet, this series doesn't take it to the point where it's overly complicated and hard to understand. In fact, it's quite thrilling and exciting! Replicating a human mind and putting into a clone, so to speak, so that way even if a loved one dies, he can just come back! It's truly a unique and engaging storyline and I am so very, very eager to see how this one ends!

As far as romance goes, I was surprised with what Jenna did this time! I continue to sympathize for Nadia. She was putting herself into a loveless marriage while Nate would continue to see Kurt in secret, but where does that leave Nadia? But then she meets Dante who turns out to be a spy for the resistance movement. And there were definite sparks flying between them last time! And let's just say, that those sparks turn into fireworks this go around!! Although, I can't help but have hostile feelings towards Nate, who doesn't like Nadia with Dante. He does his best to accept it, but he feels like she should be with someone else. I know he cares for her as his friend, but I really wish he would be more happy for her that she found someone, for all this time he has had Kurt. So yeah, I had me some hate Nate time, but then he would go and do something sincere and then I stopped!

This one had quite a few jaw-dropping surprises thrown in! I mean I can't even remember how many times I was just shocked! A character might do something that was surprising or you know one of those startling events would happen, ones that you don't see coming! Basically, this read was just freaking awesome! I am very glad the final book, Revolution comes out later this year in November. But sadden by the fact that it doesn't come out until November! The ending definitely leaves your jaw hanging open yet again and I am sooo looking forward to this one's conclusion! Jenna Black has done it again and wrote yet another amazingly, GREAT read!

Overall Rating 5/5 stars
