Resistance reviews round 4: Return of Resistance

Resistance main page here.

Collected reviews here.

A few reviews I’ve been waiting to share – Curiosity of a Social Misfit, FanGirl Confessions, and Muggenet, which is a site that as a long-term Potterhead I’ve been to several times. It’s an honour to see my own work there – and a five-star review? Super grateful. Warning, though: the Mugglenet review, while plot-spoiler-free, does give you a great deal of information about the book. So if you like to go into books knowing very little, you might want to read it afterwards – though if you were that kind of person you wouldn’t be here, would you?

‘ If you have the guts to poke your head out of the comfortable and familiar and try a new, somewhat foreign flavor (“international” would be a better description), you will be richly rewarded. Only look out for falling buildings, animated statues, monsters with poisonous flatulence, and the possibility of at least a third book to come!’ – MuggleNet

‘… a tighter pace, well rounded characters and some really well placed revelations about not only the characters but also their powers…. When all the pieces start to come together, it’s just like watching a master painter working on his next piece of art.’ – Curiosity of a Social Misfit

‘What would it be like if normal humans were suddenly given superpowers? I feel both books deal with this issue in a way that isn’t just humorous, but also realistic. And that’s what makes both books a good read’ – FanGirl Confessions
