BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Resist by Tracey Martin

Book & Author Details:

Resist by Tracey Martin
(Redzone #2)
Published by: Samhain Publishing
Publication date: November 17th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Science Fiction, Thriller


Truth is a powerful weapon…but explosives never hurt.

Sophia can run but she can’t hide. RedZone is on her tail and those of the six tech-augmented soldiers who escaped its clutches with her. If she could only focus on fighting her way to safety, she might live long enough to disappear. But it’s not just her own backside she needs to watch out for.

At her side is her boyfriend, Kyle. He’s the reason she found the courage to escape, and she’ll do anything to keep him and his secrets out of RedZone’s hands. Only problem is, since she was once sent to capture him, he has good reason not to trust her.

In fact, there’s not much trust to go around. RedZone keeps finding them, suggesting someone is a traitor. And if that’s not enough to recapture the group, the organization has a backup plan. One that will force Sophia and Kyle to choose between safety and risking everything one more time.

Warning: Contains killer robots, mutant college students, and dangerous super soldiers. And those are the good guys. It’s enough to make a rogue assassin wish she were taking her philosophy final instead.


5 out of 5 (exceptional)

This is the second book in the Redzone set and starts off with Sophia back in the camp. Cole is also there with her, and she finds out that Kyle is also there. Her memories are missing again, although she is having dreams and flashbacks which are confusing as they seem very real. Sophia has to play a game with rules unknown, not knowing who she can trust, until she can get her memories back and figure out just what the hell is going on. 

This is once again packed full of action and attitude. I loved how you are with Sophia all the way, only learning bits as she does. This made for one heck of a page turner! I am torn on how I feel about Cole though. At one point, I really disliked him (and I do mean REALLY!), but now I just sort of feel sorry for him. I hope that he gets his HEA at some point. 

Well written and totally gripping, I loved every scene in this book. Yes, I am completely happy with the way things turned out, and no, I can't think of a single thing that I would change. Loved it! Highly recommended.

Tracey Martin grew up outside of Philadelphia, the lucky recipient of a drama-free childhood, which is why she spent so much time reading about other people’s lives. It was while she was working on her doctorate in psychology that she had an epiphany–imaginary people are way more fun than real ones. And so she began writing. Never able to choose just one of anything, she currently writes both urban fantasy for adults and contemporary stories for teens.

She likes her coffee simple, her music epic, and her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn’t understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets. You can find her online at
