When political parties have failed, the Oligarchy tightens its grip to hold power. A puppet leader who can’t be controlled has devastated the nation and put the population against one another. In a future 150 years from now, the climate of today has reached its limit.

Where walls stand high, deceit runs deep…

Handled since childhood, repressed and embittered, MacKenzie Dillon is the posterchild for America’s New Republic. As a Protectorate soldier, critical thought is neither required nor advisable, and for over a century he’s served the state, helping to silence dissent. Performing his duties without question or concern, he’s been the perfect pawn in every way…until now.

MacKenzie’s earliest memories have begun to surface, and it’s grown exceedingly difficult to deny the truth about his masters. Do the walls that surround him represent security or enslavement? Is it possible that he’s been supporting a malevolent force all along? With secret ties to The Resistance, Commander McCord has answers, but they’re sure to come at a cost. It’s a regime that takes no prisoners, and nothing could be more dangerous than exposing its ultimate motives. Vice Chancellor Pincer has eyes everywhere.

Should he accept the risk that a secret promotion involves, MacKenzie will be positioned to ascertain his true identity while aiding those that still dream of peace in a landscape of hatred. Does he have what it takes to represent humanity’s final defense?

With Trumpery Resistance, J. Steven Young offers a fresh take on ‘political action’, transporting readers to a dark future that’s all too foreseeable from today’s tumultuous vantage. Defiant on all levels, inward and out, it’s a cautionary tale that’s wildly entertaining.
Author J. Steven Young’s LGBT anti-hero, MacKenzie Dillon, works well within an action-packed plotline that is meant to elevate him from a robot-like Enforcer to a high-ranking First Protectorate in a dangerous position with essentially unbound authority. The opportunity of his promotion provides Dillon certain privileges that allow him to rub elbows with the political elite, work clandestinely within the rebel forces, and live a private life that he could only have dreamed of.
