Even as he trains to be a pilot for the Resisters, 12-year-old Ethan Blackwood is still reeling from the news that aliens called the Ch’zar have taken over the world and put all the adults under their mind control. Now the Ch’zar’s mechanical bug armies are growing. The Resisters need more pilots like Ethan, kids who aren’t afraid to think for themselves. Ethan knows just where the Ch’zar send troublemakers like him - to Sterling Reform School. Can Ethan find a way to break into Sterling and recruit new fighters before the enemy discovers the Resisters’ underground base?
Million-copy best-selling Halo author Eric Nylund again brings action-packed science fiction to a young audience with the riveting second book in the Resisters series.
Eric Nylund is best know for Halo and so for many parents of young readers might be an author to hessitate over. Resisters was very well done and my 11 year old son connected with the caracters, enjoyed the idea of an alien take over where the parents are helpless but kids can come to the rescue. Book two continues to develope the resisters characters and got another two thumbs up fromt the son. There are just not enough good books in any genere that speak to young boys and stay PG and out of the overly graphic. I am very pleased Eric Nylund knows that a good story can stand without such and kept it young reader approperate.
