The Greatest Risk is to Take No Risk at All. Nationwide food shortages have sparked civil unrest, and the Office of Civilian Safety and Defense's hold on the people is slipping. The Resistance's efforts to hasten the OCSD's demise have resulted in disaster, with Tommy Bailey and Careen Catecher taking the blame for the ill-fated mission in Tommy's home quadrant, OP-439. Both teens struggle to survive the circumstances that force them into the national spotlight--and this time, they're on opposite sides. On the run and exiled from his fellow Resistance members in remote BG-098, Tommy makes his way to a Resistance safe house in the capital. The OCSD is preparing to monitor all under-eighteens with the Cerberean Link, a device that protects them against hunger and sickness and can even locate them if they're lost. Tommy's now living in close quarters with Atari, an operative who has been assigned to sabotage the Link. But does Atari plan to use it for his own purposes? Through it all, Tommy refuses to believe Careen's loyalties have shifted away from the Resistance, and he's willing to assume any risk to reconnect with her. Will they be able to trust each other when it matters most?

Review:

Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite

Careen is in the hands of the OCSD, who now want to use her image to their own advantage - and they will use all means necessary to slowly and painfully break her into cooperating with them. At the same time, the OCSD is preparing to roll out a device called the Cerberean Link, which would make it possible for them to track all under 18s (for the public, the device is meant to keep children from ever being hungry or left injured and lost) - and later on adults as the link can never be removed. Unlike Careen, Tommy managed to get away after the bombing accident at the end of book 2. He wants nothing more than to get Careen back because he cannot believe that she would turn against the resistance. He temporarily lives with a guy called Atari, who is directly responsible for developing the Link - but apparently wants to use it against the OCSD. But who can the members of the resistance trust whenmore and more is at stake, and loyalties are questioned?

There are some brutal things happening to Careen in Ignite by Tracy Lawson, and as readers became attached to her over the first two books, it's not easy to read what is happening to her. Right to the end - and I mean LITERALLY right to the end -you will have some questions about whether Careen will ever be the same. A question that will most likely be answered in another part of the series. I highly recommend readers to read the first two books in the Resistance series by Tracy Lawson before they start with book 3, Ignite. It would otherwise be a bit difficult to understand. Like the previous two volumes of the Resistance series, this is a book that makes it hard for readers to put it down. There is a lot happening to the different characters. I like that the spotlight isn't always on Careen and Tommy as knowing about the other characters is very interesting, too. Atari seems a bit dodgy;who knows what he is up to? While the plot ideas can be found in older novels, too, it takes a lot of talent to make them feel fresh. I never felt like I was reading just another copy of another dystopian YA novel, or was following another Katniss Everdeen. The Resistance series is a series I would recommend to people looking for anew YA series to start,but who do not want to be bored by more of the same.

Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite

Ignite by Tracy Lawson is a fascinating thriller for young adults and the third book in the Resistance Series. Ignite introduces a dystopian settingwhere people are suffering from hunger and social unrest. An organization that should take care of the safety of the inhabitants is losing itsgrip because of the resistance. In the social chaos, heroes stand out --Careen Catecher, a young, dynamic and committed fighter who wants herfreedom and survival. Tommy Bailey is a brave young man who is in lovewith Careen, and committed to the fight of the resistance. Can these twostay together, given the chaotic social conditions and the conflicts that force them to watch every step they take and look over their shoulderswherever they go?

This is a great story, one of those raredystopian thrillers that had me reading nonstop, and what caught myattention most was the fascinating setting, captured in vivid prose. Thewriting is highly descriptive and engaging, and the plot is fast-paced,action-rich, and utterly entertaining. The characters are well-imagined,and whether they are working on a solution from a tight spot or lookingfor a way forward,they come across as charged, exuding focus and astrong determination to stand against the people who, out of greed, arebent on sinking their world. The chapters are well crafted to push thereader over the edge into the next one. Tracy Lawson is skilled atcrafting emotionally and psychologically rich scenes, a conflict-drivenplot that allows the reader no moment of distraction. It is focused; itis entertaining in an absorbing kind of way.

In the third book of this set, the OCSDs hold is slipping. Civil
unrest is growing and the Resistance is battling to win the
day. The book primarily follows two characters, Careen and
Tommy, as they fight to overthrow the terrible dictatorship.
But, in the shadow of the OCSD's latest plan, a device called
the Link, it is also a story of who to trust and who not to.
There is still another book to go in this set. Now, I often find
books that can't 'end' the story, rather unsettling. I don't get
to find out if the hero will save the day and, even if I suspect
they will, I won't find out how. For example, Harry Potter and
the Half Blood Prince. A wonderfully exciting book, yes, but
still incredibly annoying. This book also suffers from this but,

I'm happy to report, the author works had to offer her readers
plenty of thrills and spills to keep them interested. And most
of the thrills seem to spill from Careen. She is put through hell
in this book; graphically so, but it is so enthralling and so
fantastically written, I was engrossed.
This set of books, including Ignite, is fast-paced, swimming
with memorable characters and written by an author who
seems to be getting better and better. It is also an interesting
study of power and what can happen when the freedom of
citizens and what a government insists it must do to protect
them is unbalanced.
Ignite, I feel is not a 'stand-alone' novel. I strongly recommend
that if you enjoy YA thrillers to start at Counteract and enjoy
the ride. Trust me, when you get to Book Three, you will be
fully addicted and you will enjoy every page of this gripping
thriller.
