DETERMINED YOUNG FUGITIVE …
DESPERATE FEDERATION FORCES CLOSE IN …
BETRAYALS AND TRAPS ALL AROUND.
Regina Shen’s advantage as an outcast is she doesn’t need much more than food and water to survive. She’s been poked, prodded, and chased across a continental desert, all for her unique genome that promises to prevent human extinction. She’s beginning to believe she has a destiny beyond surviving and rescuing her sister as she faces her biggest challenges yet.
Perfect for fans of the Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner. Regina Shen: Endurance is the fourth book in a science fiction thriller series about an ordinary yet strong young woman facing extraordinary hurdles with tenacity.
Abrupt climate change melted ice caps, flooded coasts, and turned continents into deserts. Regina grew up on salvage from sunken cities, including illegal print books from the past, which she committed to memory. She snuck onto World Federation land to rescue her sister and dropped into the middle of political intrigue.
The Federation uses the notorious Department of Antiquities to keep order by suppressing dissent and destroying evidence from the past. While the North American governor vies to become World Premier, rival Antiquities agents fight to capture Regina for political gain.
Betrayed by her mother, Regina must escape dragnets in Alaska. Posing as an ally, Chief Inspector Demarco offers to help Regina and her sister if Regina finds hidden vaults containing viable human DNA. Giving up such treasures violates Regina’s commitment to preserve ancient gifts.
Driven to help her sister and seeing no other choice, Regina embarks on a journey to the Southwest Desert to use her unique skills to provide what Demarco wants and hunt for evidence that threatens the Federation. She faces challenges and loss that shake her to her core. Can Regina find the DNA vaults for Demarco and master Federation intrigues to survive and rescue her sister before it’s too late?

After the last vault was destroyed, Regina has decided to trek to the great desert and try to find the vault hidden there. Thankfully Ester has trucker friends to help them along with others. But DeMarco and Volpe are still fighting to get their hands on Regina and the government is still trying to figure out who is going to be the next World Premier. But things are going to get tough when Regina’s mother makes another appearance and Regina has to make some tough decisions. Regina is still holding out hope to rescue Colleen. She still hopes that finding this vault could be enough to save Colleen. But Ester and Regina are trying to find a hidden vault in the middle of a huge desert and if they do find it all they can do is hope that it has survived time. The real question is if she does find the vault would the government accept it. I love this series and have heard this is the last book. I hope not since somethings were left open and I hope to see how they are finished. I am very proud of Regina, she has grown into a strong woman that is needed to survive in this world. This is a great series and one that I strongly recommend for those that like the post-apocalyptic/dystopian books. I received Endurance for free from iRead Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
Oh Regina. My friend Regina. I feel like her friend. I feel an attachment. I have been through so much with her and have cheered her on the entire way. Four books. A series. (I highly recommend reading these in order, together, as soon as possible!) Supposedly this is the final book in the series, but I am not convinced! I feel like there are still unanswered questions and curious what happens next. Things were left… unfinished. Don’t get me wrong, I feel like some things were finally explained but there are still some things that weren’t wrapped up. All in all, I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and will be passing it on to my 10 year old to read. It isn’t inappropriate. It is future based with a lot of intrigue and interest, twists and turns, edge of your seat suspense (but not in a bad, scary way suspense.) I definitely recommend picking up the Regina Shen series!
Regina Shen: Endurance is the last book in the Regina Shen series. This series as I have pointed out in the other book reviews I have done for this series must be read in order to understand the plot. These books do build on one another. Each one does get better and each one story gets more thrilling. Regina Shen is an outcast in her futuristic society. She lives in a time where everything we know is gone. She is once again caught between the people who run the government. This time it is the Department of Antiques and the political turmoil over who will become the next World Premier. She is also still trying to find enough treasures to sell in order to buy her sister's freedom. This journey is not an easy one and it will push Regina to her limits. Will she be able to endure such trials? This book in the series is the best of the entire series. Regina has really grown as the character who has become a very strong female protagonist. This book has so many twists and turns that it will keep the reader at the edge of their chairs. the author knows how to draw the audience into this world. This book was a wonderful way to end this series. This book I give five out of five stars. This series is one I would recommend to those who love the "rebuilding of a society after this one has collapse" genre. Lance Erlick is a wonderful writer. The reader can tell his joy of writing just by reading this series. It is amazing to see how Regina has grown throughout these books. This character will be missed.
