The Blurb
Connie thinks she’s never met anyone quite like Luke Beith before.

She has no idea how right she is.

As a high-ranking mathematician in a male-dominated field – with bright red hair – Connie’s used to being considered a little unusual.

But she’s nowhere near as peculiar as Luke, who is recruited to work alongside her on a top-secret code breaking project.

Just what is this bizarre sequence they’re studying? It isn’t a solution to the global energy crisis. It isn’t a new wavelength to sell microwave ovens. The numbers are trying to tell them something… and it seems only Luke knows what.

The truth is out there. Will Connie dare to find it?


The Review
Thank you to Orbit Books for the copy of Resistance is Futile to read and review.

Connie, a mathematician, is given a Government project to try and crack a scientific code that holds the answers to something that could change the world forever. However, she’s not alone, there’s a selection of other intellectuals that put together their thoughts and detail their workings.

Connie and her team become the rat pack, and look out for each other. During the long hours of trying to answer the problem they become friends, as well as, allies.

Finally, a female lead that has brains, as well as beauty. Connie is very intelligent and loves her mathemetics. We always need books to showcase just how strong women are, and Resistance is Futile does exactly that. Go Jenny!

The name of the novel was brought to my attention by Charlotte, who informed me that ‘Resistance is Futile’ is a phrase from Star Trek – I had no idea! When you dive into the novel, the phrase will all make sense to you, as it did to me.

I obviously can’t tell you too much about what happens because that would ruin the story and we don’t want that, do we? Let’s just say that Connie and Luke lead people on a wild goose chase, whilst trying to hide from the clutches of some very angry people!
