Anna and Peter, who first appeared in The Declaration, are now “Legal” and living in London. They are taking care of Anna’s baby brother, Ben, and life is still pretty shaky for them. Even though they are no longer Surpluses, people look at them strangely because of their youth. Strangely and angrily, because even though Longevity drugs give you eternal life, they do not give you eternal youth.
Both Anna and Peter still have ties to the Underground, a network of people who have not signed the Declaration but instead will die naturally. In order to help their cause, Peter takes a job at Pincent Pharma, the company his grandfather owns. The company develops and manufactures Longevity drugs. Peter pretends to have changed to get on his grandfather’s good side and find out what’s going on behind closed doors.
Peter does find out what’s going on. And it’s bad. Very, very bad.
Can Peter, with the help of a few friends and a long-lost half-brother, make a difference? Find out in The Resistance, by Gemma Malley.
