Review: Refuse (Recoil #2)

30185590 Refuse by Joanne Macgregor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

This series! While I’m realizing that Jinx is pretty naive, I’m still totally in love with this series! This one somewhat reminded me of The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski. Jinx is starting to question everyone, and soon finds out something about ASTA that she can’t ignore. Planning to run, she struggles to find out who she can trust, and what side is right in this war.


She makes some new friends both inside, and out of ASTA, as well as some new enemies. With blackmail, danger, fugitives, and rabies hitting close to home, where can Jinxy turn?
