As the first Alsean to serve aboard a Protectorate warship, Rahel Sayana thought her empathic sense would be an advantage. She never imagined it could be a weakness.
Captain Ekatya Serrado has her hands full with a new empathic officer, an attempted murder, and a missing cargo ship. Finding the lost ship only adds to her problems: its crew lies dead amid signs of alien predators. When those signs appear on her own ship, she must find a solution or face a similar fate.
The clock is ticking, but Ekatya has a resource she never had before. Rahel’s weakness is also her strength, and she will stand between danger and those who need her—no matter the risk.

Fletcher had this to say about her latest book!
Why did you want to write this book, specifically?
After finishing the story of Rahel Sayana in Outcaste, I said to myself “Okay, done” and began writing the next book in the Chronicles of Alsea series, which deals with different characters and wraps up a bunch of threads that have been woven through the whole series. Then I got to the part where Rahel makes a guest appearance, and thought, “Waitaminit. There’s a story missing here. What happened to Rahel between the end of Outcaste and this point?”
I took characters who would all be social outcasts for different reasons and showed how love dissolves all barriers. #EmbraceDesigner.
What do you like best about it?
Did I mention that I love my aliens?
Can you tell the readers something about Resilience that they might not know just from reading the book?
The weirdest bit of research I did for Resilience was determining what a viewer would see if they were looking closely at someone whose throat was torn out. There were quite a few emails back and forth with my medical consultant, who sent me anatomical diagrams with nicely colored veins and arteries. She also kindly kept me from embarrassing myself by mistaking the esophagus for the trachea.
Totally immersive world-building, adventure, fun, FIVE kickass women, top-notch writing. (Hyphenated words only count as one, right?)
