Better but still The Hunger Games!! I feel like I'm reading that series again in a parallel universe. The similarities are strong,however.. This is developing into a good story, it's an entertaining read and the characters are strong. Abi is a force and her passion is addictive. Next book, let's go rescue Peter....oh no sorry wrong character. I meant Gray!!!!!
I enjoyed reading the last 2 Harvest saga novel. It’s a dystopian novel that explores the existing social & political structures that is still existing in society. The rich and the poor, good vs. evil and man’s thirst for power & position. How I always loved a brave and bad ass heroine. Abby may not kick butts in the story but she is a fierce fighter and very compassionate girl. She has to endure pain both emotionally and physically and yet she remained resilient. The author was able to describe the characters without going into further detail but their actions and movement speak for themselves. How I love Kyan. I was really rooting for him but I guess they were not meant to be and I just wish in the 3rd book he will find his true love. I felt sad for Crew that it has to end that way but he was manipulated and used by his Father. I felt Abby’s pain when he was sentenced. As for Gray the Olympian guard who stood with her and loved her through tough times. I can’t wait to read the 3rd book. I hope all gets their HEA.
I ran out and bought Resist the *day* it went on sale. I loved Reap, and couldn't wait to continue the story of Abby, Crew, and Kyan. Casey is quickly becoming a go-to author when I'm in the mood for a great story. Enough of my rambling! I'm sure you're eager to hear about the story.
From a Reader's Perspective: Let me tell you, there were some major shockers in this book. They had me putting my hand to my mouth and gasping for air. This is an edge-of-your-seat read for sure. Many times, I find the middle book in a series lacking punch. They kind of go tra-la-la to move the plot along, and there's nothing interesting on the pages. Resist isn't one of those books. It'll keep you biting your nails, cringing, and tearing up over and over again. Pacing is spot on, and I wanted more when I hit the last page. As in Reap (book one), the world building is awesome. I love that there are more than one Greater factions in control of the Lessers. It made the twisty plot even more of a page turner. Warning! There is a cliffhanger. It's a big one. So, if you don't like that sort of thing, wait for the last book to come out before you start reading. If you don't mind, pick up these books ASAP.
From an Editor's Perspective: So many errors in the writing. Mostly punctuation and pronoun confusions, but there were a few oops moments that should've been caught. Example: Even though it was only a rouse, she would be hurt. This should read: Even though it was only a ruse, she would be hurt. Sadly, what would've been a 5 star book, is dropped to 4 because of the errors. I had to turn my inner editor off.
Rating: 1 Star for keeping me on the edge of my seat 1 Star for awesome twists I was blindsided by 1 Star for world building 1 Star for pacing and wonderful conflict -1 Star for editing
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars. A fantastic read that'll keep you gripping your chair despite the writing errors. Recommended if you can look past writing errors and really get into a story.
So much death in so little time. The action doesn't really slow down much in book 2, and where it does is to leave suspense and build up to much greater plus. Keep reading these books, they just get better and better.
