    One thought on “Resilience

    1. Marni on said:

      An interesting novel, unique in the surroundings described and very to the point with the way life, after drastic changes, would be lived. The author was able to take an idea and mold it into a story that grew as he wrote. He was able to build upon different types of collapses, environmental and physiological that created a future world that feels downright miserable but is the basis of hope for the characters in the story itself.I enjoyed the story, but felt that there were so many descriptions [...]

      This is an entertaining dystopian with a likeable primary character. My rating 4.0.Regina Shen lives in the swamps on the seaward side of the wall of the World Federation. Regina is one of the “marginals’ who survive beyond the help of the government. But the government is experiencing some difficulties. The world of only females is having trouble reproducing. The dna that has helped society continue has degenerated so that the species is at risk.The Federal agents are testing the marginal g [...]

      In this novel fusing elements of dystopian fiction and sci-fi, a girl named Regina, who narrates most of the story, lives on the seaside of barriers that protect residents behind them from elevated waters effected by climate change, with her clan sentenced to live there by the World Federation. Tricentenarians rule the female-centric Federation with a system of castes, with Chief Inspector of its Department of Antiquities Joanne Demarco, who is occasionally the focus of third-person sections of [...]

      I must say that Lance Erlick is a mastermind. Regina is a survivor. The copious amounts of misfortune she goes through in this book to evade the bounty killers and Antiquities, while trying to find her sister and mom, is admirable. Although, I had to gasp at the fact that this takes place in a time where books don’t exist. I can’t fathom not reading my favorite authors, let alone my new favorite author, Mr, Erlick.Regina grows so much in this first installment and she is so brilliant and res [...]

    5. Cheryl on said:

      I received the opportunity to review this book and the other three books in this series as part of a blog tour. I am glad I did otherwise I would still be unfamiliar with this author and this series. Although, I must admit that the front and back covers were not very appealing to me and in fact had me a little worried about the standards for this book. After reading this book it just goes to show that you can't judge a book by its front or back covers. I like the world that the author has built. [...]

      I couldn't put this fast-paced book down! The best way I can describe it is kind of like Hunger Games combined with Their Eyes Were Watching God, with a little sci fi thrown in. Great characters with strong personalities, descriptions that put the reader into the swamps with the main character Regina, and enough danger to get your blood pumping. It's probably one of the best books I've read in 2015! Highly recommended!

      This is the first book in this series, which must be read in order. Regina Shen is an outcast. Forced by the World Federation, Regina must live on the seaward side of the barrier walls meant to hold back seas that area rising due to climate change. Some many things happen to Regina. A major hurricane (a category 5)almost destroys what Regina has left in the worldAs all this is happening there is a decline in the population and Joanne Demarco thinks that Regina is the key. Regina is on the run to [...]

      *I received a free copy from the author for an honest review *What a ride! That was my first thought on finishing the book. And the second thought was that hopefully the following books in the series would be as good as this one.The author has taken the real issue of melting of the ice caps and created a dystopian world on the What-If situation of flooding of the world. The world described in the book kind of scared me. I definitely wouldn't want to be a swamp rat. But Regina, the protagonist ro [...]

      Global warming has destroyed the ice caps leaving the world sunk in water. In this new world women have taken over and changed all religion to focus around GODs, the Grand Old Dames. The dames are in struggle for who rules the existing world. But in their world, their systems are breaking down. There are no men and the girls created are made in labs. There is a break down in the genetic material and weakened the new children so they don’t survive. Regina Shen is a child in the marshes outside [...]

    10. Sarah-Jayne Briggs on said:

      (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).I though the concept of this book was a particularly interesting one. The idea of having a society entirely comprised of women, many of whom were forced to live in a swamp, was a really intriguing one. Even though I was a bit confused by exactly why so many of them were outside the Wall, I was easily pulled into the atmosphere of the story.I was disappointed by the fact that the book switched betwee [...]

    12. Thomas Weaver on said:

      A dystopia that isn't the result of some huge cataclysm or alien invasion That alone would be enough to make this novel stand out from the crowd. Also, unlike the other novels by this author I'd read, this one is in past tense, which I prefer. (Present tense feels artificial to me. It's just a matter of personal taste.)After reading The Rebel Within, I said I wanted to know a lot more about the setting and backstory, not because the author failed to give enough information for that story but bec [...]

      Regina Shen: Resilience is the first book in a YA Sci Fi series set on earth in a future where the melting of the polar icecaps tumbled the world into disorder. A new order has arisen. Males have been wiped from the planet, books were destroyed to limit knowledge and procreation for the all-female population is now handled in a lab. An ever changing truth is dictated by the government and a caste system is firmly in place. Undesirables are cast outside the walled cities on whatever small swampy [...]

      Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/book-touRegina Shen: Resilience is the first book in a trilogy focusing on Regina Shen, a young girl who is forced by the World Federation to live on the outside of the Wall. Aforementioned walls were built to hold back rising seas due to climate change and to protect the world behind the walls. Like that wasn’t bad enough, a hurricane raging overhead seperated Regina from her family, and she’s now completely run out of luck. Meanwhile, th [...]

    15. Amy on said:

      Regina Shen: Resilience by Lance Erlick is the story of a fifteen year old girl trying to survive in the receding swamps of what was once Richmond, Virginia during a hurricane. This is a post-apocalyptic story in a world where greedy, ruthless Grand Old Dames rule; nature has turned hostile; and all the men have long since been wiped out. That’s right, there are no men. As a female, myself, I do not find that future wholly idyllic. Women have managed to get by for several centuries by using Eg [...]

    16. Anastacia on said:

      Resilience is book one of the Regina Shen series, which takes place in a dystopian-type world. Though I was initially put off by the book covers, the premise behind the series intrigued me enough that I was thrilled to sign up for the review tour.Regina, of course, is our hero. She's a teenager, as they always are in dystopian books, and has a younger sister and a mom, both of whom we see little of in this book.Regina has courage, is portrayed as smart, and is certainly loyal to her sister. Much [...]

Since men were seen as incompetent, woman are the only living gender. But global fertility is failing, and Inspector Demarco believes that Regina is the answer to the problem. When a hurricane threatens to tear her family apart, will Regina be able to save her family and avoid capture? And is she truly the solution to fertility’s failure?Opinion: Most p [...]

      `Resilience` is the first book in an action-packed, science fiction, young-adult, series by author Lance Erlick.The Federation are the evil rulers. The people under the Federation are known as Marginals. Women within the Federation could only have children if they obeyed. The Federation dumbed down the Marginals, they were not allowed to read books. Regina Shen, the protagonist, wanted to learn, she loved her teacher and sought ways to stay after school so she could continue to learn. Three year [...]

    19. Dani on said:

      Review originally posted on A Bibliophile's Reverie Set in the future, Erlick does a great job showing us a world that has been destroyed by climate change and greedy people. It was definitely not a place that I wanted to visit, but I was still intrigued by the world nevertheless. The only thing that I was confused about was how they reproduced, since it sounded like there weren’t many men or they were held captive. I didn’t quite follow and wished that was a little clearer, or I could have [...]

      Think Hunger Games. Think in the future (way future) and battle for survival. The rich survive while the poor fight for their lives to be… well, the last one standing.Let me set the scene…The inner circle is surrounded by a giant wall. Have you ever watched the Avatar cartoon? The “big city” is surrounded by this giant wall to keep the outside world out, separate from the inside world. That’s what we have here.On the inside is the “worthy”. BUT, they are all women. No men. The worl [...]

      An adventurous and action packed novel for teens, Lance Erlick has written a captivating and thrilling dystopian series, beginning with book one in the Regina Shen Series, Resilience. This story is about a young girl, Regina, which must survive in a cruel and harsh world. She lives as a scavenger in a swamp with her mother and younger sister and attends a little local community school.

May contains spoilers, but hopefully not. All opinions are my own, and not by any means influenced by other.This book follows young Regina Shen, a Hispanic-Chinese, a Marginal girl in a very futuristic Richmond . . . California or Virginia? She lives in the swamps and whenever there is a huge storm that causes a flood, if the Marginals are no [...]

      I received this Advanced Reader Copy and I couldn't wait to read it. The plot promised to be another YA dystopic novel about a 15 year old girl forced to go the run because she has a gene the government wants. There isn't a love triangle though which is a nice change. The book is set in swamps at the edges of North America where “Marginals” live outside The Wall, and floods threaten this caste of survival-based women. Men have become completely extinct due to new biological advances that neg [...]

      (I received this book free from the author in exchange for my honest review)This was a different read for me and I’m glad that I took a change on this unique take on a world without men. I was hook from the start, the world building was fantastic and it drew me in a way that had me thinking I was watching a movie. The only fault I could see was that there wasn’t a whole lot of time give to explaining this worlds tec and some of the new worlds weren’t properly defined. So this did cause me [...]

      I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.Although the future world that Lance Erlick has created is interesting, it’s a terrible world for the Marginals, or the people living in the swamp outside the wall surrounding the rest of the world. It’s survival of the fittest in the swamp.Resilience starts with a hurricane and the action never stops. Regina Shen survives the hurricane, bounty hunters, salvagers, the Department of Antiquities, alligators, and more. She’s smart, res [...]

      It was love at first page! Seriously I loved everything about this book. I took this book everywhere with me so I could read it every little chance I got and couldn't wait to continue reading when I had to put it down for any reason. Resilience had all the things I want in a book especially my top 2 requirements of a great book which are great characters and plenty of action/adventure. The story reminds of The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner (the movies because I have never read the books). Res [...]

      I found this book to be a quick enjoyable read.The author created a unique take on the YA dystopian and climate change genres.The story centers around a young woman who is struggling to survive in a desperate world.She is considered inferior to the elite city dwellers.Regina and her fellow Marginals are forced to live outside the flood walls and live in the swamps.The author created characters I feel invested in and is quite talented at world building.The book finishes nicely without a huge clif [...]

The authority who rejected them to begin with then captures the young as slaves. The authority discovers that their fertility is failing and one girl possesses the key to save them. However, she fights to stay free even with so little to survive on. She's smart, savvy, has endurance and survival skills. This is a great well written and th [...]
