The Resistance

Rate this book
Fighting back is twice as hard when battling on two fronts.

Living in an encampment in the Ruins, life is harsh for most Unis in the Resistance, but for Cyrus and the other Ruins survivors, it's just more of the same. While training for their ultimate mission to take down the Uprising, tragedy strikes, turning Evan's and Cyrus's world upside down. Before they can recover, they discover someone in their ranks is working against them.

Facing tougher odds than they ever imagined, the group realizes the only hope they have of saving the world they know is to find help. When no one is above suspicion, even accomplishing everyday tasks is fraught with danger, but seeking out reinforcements could mean the end of the Resistance and all of them along with it.

The Resistance was an action packed ride from start to finish. All of our favorites were back and the stakes were even higher. With fabulous twists and turns, and characters that continually pulled at my heart, this book sailed right onto my favorites list! If you're a fan of young adult, dystopian and romance then you definitely need to add this series to your tbr!
I take one step forward, then another, heading to an unknown future, fear spiraling through me, on the verge of twisting me apart.

✮ Twists and Turns:
“It scares me.”
I reach out and locate her hand in the darkness, giving it a gentle squeeze. “What does?”
“I don’t know what’s real anymore.”
Leaning forward, I find her lips, devouring them with a searing kiss. “You and me. We’re real. That’ll never change.”

I absolutely loved how throughout this book, so many of the puzzle pieces were falling into place. It made me feel confident with where the story was going. I should have known better, since moments started making me gasp out loud. My mind was blown. Multiple times. I had some guesses that were sooo wrong and there were twists I didn't even see coming. Looking back, the clues were there, I just thought they were leading me elsewhere. The Resistance unfolded so effortlessly and the unexpected twists made for a fun and exciting read!

✮ An Emotional and Action Packed Journey:
“Cyrus!” Evan yells as if she’s entered a tunnel . “Oh my god! Cyrus!” Cool hands cradle my face that feel like ice against my raging skin. “Cyrus.” One sob follows another as she continues to yell my name, softer and softer, as if she’s fading away.

One of my favorite things about this series, is how emotional moments and action packed ones were seamlessly intertwined. With love, family and friendship splashed across the pages, it made for an emotional story. The characters became a part of my heart and soul. And since that first book, I have felt everything they have felt. So it wasn't a surprise that I found tears pouring down my face multiple times. And once those tears would dry, then I'd find myself with sweaty palms. I was scared to death over the fate of those I loved, since there were so many moments where I was on the edge of my seat. This book impossible to put down!

✮ The Heart of This Series:
“All the shit we’ve weathered , we’re still us, Ev. We go from one disaster to another, but we never lose who we are. I’m sorry I forgot that. No matter what still lies ahead for us, that’s all I need. Just… you and me.”
“Always,” I say, squeezing his hand. “That will never change.”

The hurdles thrown in their way seemed insurmountable at times. Yet these characters, who I love with my whole heart, kept pushing forward. Even when the odds were stacked against them. And that's because they have all grown so much since they first appeared in this series. Especially Evan and Cyrus. Their moments together were powerful and I loved how they've learned to communicate. Even if it was hard at times. It made my heart so happy watching the two of them be such a formidable team. And when you throw in the rest of their group of friends and family, they were a true team. I loved how they worked together. I couldn't be prouder of all of them!
When our lips meet it’s a sultry dance of desire, forgiveness, and undying love.

I loved The Resistance with my whole heart! With a heroine I'd love to have by my side, a book boyfriend I want to steal from the pages and a storyline that had me turning the pages faster, this book was such a huge win! Add in the fact that there was a strong redemption theme in this story, how could I not love every single thing about it? Okay maybe I didn't completely love Bryce. Yet. But that yet is all I'm admitting lol! So definitely add this series and book to your tbr, it's a must read!

So the story keeps on going - We see these characters keep evolving over the the last 5 books which is great. I am just curious as to how many books this series is going to be - I have read many a series and the problem is stories and plot lines can stall and get repetitive. I hope that isn't the case here but we shall see.
With that being said The Resistance had a lot going on here. It seems like they were trying to make a lot of strides to take down the Uprising however didn't get too far. They had to take care of something in their own camp - and that is what this book is about along with a few side missions.
The good thing is it is written so well you move through the story quite quickly. I guess I was just hoping for a wee bit more progression with the Uprising at this point as we are at Book 5. :0) Please dont hate me :0)

T.H. Hernandez keeps Evan busy in The Resistance (978-0990868897, 2020), the fifth book in “The Union” series. Hernandez has almost non-stop action throughout the book as Evan moves from one mission to another. There is drama in-between, but the pace moves right along as Evan and her friends are starting to get squeezed from all sides.
Hernandez provides an exciting ride, even for a new reader to the series. There is romance, but it is mainly off-page and what is on page is drama filled. Hernandez writes with a crisp and clean style that I like. Plus there was plenty of action to keep me enthralled.
Join The Resistance for a quick fun read.

I received an ARC of this book from Xpresso Book Tours and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.

So far the best in The Union series! The Resistance is not a standalone novel, so you'll definitely need to read the first four books before diving in to this one. However, The Resistance definitely advances the entire story, and does a great job doing so. When the series began, the author was pretty new to novel writing, but the writing and storytelling has gotten better, tighter with each book and I can't wait to see how the rest of this story unfolds!

Somehow, some way, the author has managed to put several genres into one book. Not only is The Resistance exciting and powerful, it inspires young teens to be brave and to take action. Read as a stand alone or a series, it doesn't really matter. It's the plot that counts!
