Everyone wants Jinxy, except the one she loves.

In a near-future USA decimated by an incurable plague and tightly controlled by a repressive government, teenagers with special skills are recruited and trained to fight in the war against terror.

Now a rebellion is brewing.

All sixteen year-old expert sniper Jinxy James wanted was a little freedom, but now she’s trapped between the government and the rebels, unsure of who the real enemy is. When she uncovers appalling secrets and twisted motivations, Jinxy begins to question her allegiances. Soon she will need to choose between love and freedom, as she struggles to do the right thing in a world gone horribly wrong.

Refuse is the second book in the Young Adult dystopian romance that began with Recoil. This much anticipated sequel is filled with romance and heartache, shocking twists, and a thought-provoking examination of freedom, fear, loyalty and identity.

Refuse begins immediately after the cliffhanger ending of Recoil. Buy it now to continue the compelling story of Jinxy, Quinn and the forces ranged against them. 

Refuse by Joanne Macgregor (Recoil Trilogy, #2)

Refuse (Recoil Trilogy, #2)The USA has been destroyed by an incurable plague. What is left has been yoked to the cart of a repressive government who is using teens as their enforcers. Among them is expert sniper Jinxy James, sixteen, with a burning desire for freedom that has gotten her caught between a group of rebels and the government who has been her puppetmaster. Meanwhile, her heart longs for that one boy who may determine where her allegiance will fall, but which side is the lesser of two evils?

Once again, Joanne Macgregor takes us into a chaotic future where free thinking is frowned on and rebellion must be quashed. Jinxy is forced to harm Quinn’s brother and will pay dearly in more ways than one, will she become a girl with no alliance or will her skills be the determining factor that saves her and possibly her own brother? Will Robin be used against her in a cruel game of emotional blackmail? Can Quinn forgive her or what she did or are they over? Jinxy must choose, say yes or Refuse, knowing no matter what she does lives will be lost?

Edge of your seat tension, young love, pain and a world where even the youth are expected to act like adults without the mental maturity. Ms. Macgregor shreds this genre with her crisp and powerful style, leaving no doubt that she know how to connect with her readers. We take freedom for granted, but what if you lost yours? How would you choose which side to give your loyalties to? How far would you go to protect those you care about? Jinxy is about to test every fiber of her being with every beat of her heart…and I NEED to see what happens next!

I received an ARC edition from Joanne Macgregor in exchange for my honest review.
