Name: Resistance (Rebellion #2)
Author: Josephine Boyce
Genres: Young Adult, Dystopia
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Right. So I bought Rebellion when I met Josie at YALC last year and enjoyed it but I wasn’t blown away. It was different from typical YA/NA dystopia and I enjoyed that because we’re all tired of that samey storyline, aren’t we.
My main issues with Rebellion was things like lacking descriptions and I kinda knew what was going to happen etc etc. Resistance basically fixed every issue I may have had with Rebellion.
The introduction of two new points of view – one third present and one third past – which may have been confusing, instead broadened the whole scope of the story and made it more exciting. Don’t get me wrong, I love Cassia, but it was so much more intriguing to see what was going on through other people’s eyes, especially the new character in the sequel, Rage.
Now lemme tell you something about Rage. I LOVE Rage. Rage is everything I wanted to be as a twelve, maybe thirteen, year old battling my goddamn inner demons. Rage is my smol sweetpea who could kill me before I even took a breath. I LOVE RAGE. YOU WILL LOVE RAGE.
Anyway, Resistance takes another brilliant turn, still seemingly relevant to to political climate we live in and continues to move in a way that keeps you interested. Both of these books are shorter than your typical 600-odd page YA novel and fast paced, they keep you in and interested.
Just read them.
