The Resistance (The New World Book 1)

by Rosie Scott
An alternate cover for this ASIN can be found here.

Melanie Adams has a normal life like any other citizen of the New World. When a loved one is executed after being deemed a domestic terrorist for accidentally muttering a banned word, however, she finds she is not alone in believing it is the government that is to blame. She is soon contacted by Axel Chambers, a member of a resistance group who tells her things used to be different, and people used to be free.

Melanie finds she is living in what used to be the United States of America. After learning more of the country's past, she decides to join the fight to regain the freedoms and rights citizens once had. Axel trains her to be stealthy and to kill as an assassin, and the two become fast friends and partners, working together to gather artifacts from the country's history that could help them in the fight.

The government will not make the fight easy. Intrusive technology is rampant in the New World, and the government does not like its citizens to have knowledge or allies. To make matters worse, Melanie and Axel are soon contacted by a government official who is looking to hire the duo to anonymously put a stop to the government's latest project: controlling the human mind.

Disclaimer: This is NOT a series for young adults. The New World is a bloody series of war, espionage, and government corruption. It explores themes including the morality of killing, mental illness in times of war, and sacrifices made for a greater good. Given the situations characters find themselves in, they will curse and sometimes are traumatized. The series includes scenes of intense violence, gore, and torture.
