I was highly anticipating Breathe before it came out last year, and devoured it as soon as I could. Since that day I have been waiting, and waiting, for Resist. I know it’s still a long way off, but I loved Breathe so much and I can’t wait to get back into this world and find out more about it. Here is the synopsis of Breathe:
When oxygen levels plunge in a treeless world, a state lottery decides which lucky few will live inside the Pod. Everyone else will slowly suffocate. Years after the Switch, life inside the Pod has moved on. A poor Auxiliary class cannot afford the oxygen tax which supplies extra air for running, dancing and sports. The rich Premiums, by contrast, are healthy and strong. Anyone who opposes the regime is labelled a terrorist and ejected from the Pod to die. Sixteen-year-old Alina is part of the secret resistance, but when a mission goes wrong she is forced to escape from the Pod. With only two days of oxygen in her tank, she too faces the terrifying prospect of death by suffocation. Her only hope is to find the mythical Grove, a small enclave of trees protected by a hardcore band of rebels. Does it even exist, and if so, what or who are they protecting the trees from? A dystopian thriller about courage and freedom, with a love story at its heart.
The cover of Resist is one of my favourites ever, I love how it has kept the theme from the cover of Breathe, but highlights a completely different aspect of the world.
