#NewRelease by Teri Polen: The Insurgent

Ciao, amici! I must admit, I find myself flummoxed. In all the years I’ve known my guest, I’ve never invited her to my site. But I know you know her, and if you appreciate good writing, voracious reading (combined with thoughtful reviews), and generous blogging, I know you’re a fan of hers.

And I’m so glad to finally right this wrong and host her!

Today, I’m delighted welcome friend and fellow author Teri Polen (via R&R Book Tours) promote her latest release. Now, without further ado…

Welcome to the book tour for the exciting sequel in The Colony series, The Insurgent by Teri Polen!

The Insurgent (The Colony #2) 
Expected Publication Date: May 19th, 2022 
Genre: YA Dystopian

About The Insurgent

If a megalomaniac threatened your family, would you give up your freedom for them? Would you give up your soul?

Asher Solomon is faced with that choice. And makes the ultimate sacrifice.

Exactly as Director Silas Reeves expected him to.

Unable to live as the Colony’s premier assassin, Ash retreats to a corner of his mind, ceding control of his body to the alter-ego he was engineered to be—Subject A36. As he’s unleashed to battle the Insurgents, the only family he ever knew, the tide of war shifts in Silas’s favor.

Combined with his expansion into new territories, the director is poised to take over the world.

But the Insurgents don’t give up easily. Not on their cause, and not on their people. With the help of a few double agents deep in the Colony, they stand a fighting chance at ending Silas’s reign.

In order to shut down the program, they face almost insurmountable odds. And their most dangerous foe—their former champion turned killing machine, A36.

After passing more of the shallow vessels impersonating humans, I finally reached my
office, swung open the door and halted.  Hairs rose on the back of my neck.
I was afraid to move a muscle. 

To even breathe. 

Casually leaning against my desk, ankles crossed, was a dangerous predator.  He
watched me intently.  Muscles rippled in his forearms as he flipped a silver dagger in one hand.

It was Asher. But it wasn’t.

Sure, Ash had killed before, but it was to save hostages or in self-defense.  He’d never
outright murder anyone with no justification.  But I sensed the creature in front of me
was on a wholly different level.  To him, killing was the same as eating or sleeping.  It
was routine, a part of life, something he did every day.  And didn’t think twice about.

A36 stood before me.

Subject A36 by Teri Polen

About Subject A36

If genetic engineering could guarantee you and your family perfect health and unparalleled beauty, would you pay top dollar for it? Would you kill for it?

Residents of the Colony would. And do.

Only the Insurgents can stop them.

Seventeen-year-old Asher Solomon is a premier operative with the Insurgents. He and his team have rescued countless hostages, saving them from painful deaths in Colony labs as desirable genetic traits are stripped from their bodies.

He’s also suffered more losses than anyone should have to.

Then Asher gets intel that might give his people the upper hand. The Colony is searching for Subject A36. If the Insurgents determine the subject’s identity first, they might be able to turn the tide of the war.

Asher and his team embark on their riskiest mission ever, and the stakes have never been higher. But even if he survives the physical dangers, the devastating secrets he uncovers might destroy him.
