Overview

Million-copy bestselling Halo author and game developer Eric Nylund again brings action-packed science fiction to a young audience with the riveting second book in The Resisters series. Even as he trains to be a pilot for the Resisters, twelve-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 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 that—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?

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A young pilot trainee needs to recruit more to defend Earth against an alien menace in this made-for–video-game sci-fi adventure. In volume one of this series (The Resisters, 2011), Ethan Blackwood found out Earth was overrun by an alien species long before he was born. Kidnapped and then recruited to fight with the last remaining humans, he's learned how to fight as only a 12-year-old in a massively built cyborg wasp can. Ethan's still in flight training when he discovers that the alien Ch'zar have been expanding their forces across the planet with terrifying speed. Ethan and his fellow pilots are up for the battle, but there just aren't enough of them. They need more, kids who are old enough and strong enough to control the bio-tech insect weapons that are the only way to fight against the enemy. Adults can't fly without being absorbed into the collective Ch'zar mind, and most kids live in the simulated safety that Ethan came from, unprepared for the truth, much less the fight. But Ethan knows where they can find kids who are ready for the challenge: the Sterling Reform School, where the troublemakers are sent. Well developed, with an action-packed plot and good characterizations, this is a strong sequel leaving room for more to follow. Tailor-made for gamers, this adventure fills a niche. (Science fiction. 10-14)
