Resistance series
Resistance - Carla Jablonski,Leland Purvis,Hilary Sycamore
Defiance - Carla Jablonski,Leland Purvis
Victory - Carla Jablonski,Leland Purvis

 

 

This is a great middle-grade graphic novel series on the French resistance during World War II. Kids play their part and there is danger, but it is not overwhelming. My son brought this series home from his school library. He loved it and wanted to share it with me. I love when he does that!!

ARC Review: Juvenile
Juvenile (Resistance Book 1) - Perrin Br... Juvenile (Resistance Book 1) - Perrin Briar

I received an ARC to give an honest review.

I have sat here and tried to write this review without giving anything way only to delete and rewrite multiple times.

We are introduced to Dana who is troubled teen. When she finds herself in the middle of an apocalypse she will stop at nothing to save her sister Max.
She ends up befriending a boy named Hugo, she doesn't believe he will be able to survive because of his weight and his loudness but it seems he may surprise her.
Hugo decides that he is going to hang with Dana and survive with her and help her find her sister which in this new world it seems a majority of people will only be looking out for themselves.
I will say this. There was one scene where I sat there with my mouth opened going oh wow the author went there with that one part. I kind of giggled a bit I will be truthful.
If you enjoy zombie books check this out. Is there gore of course you have to have it in zombie books.

Resistance on Ice (Boys of Winter #2) by S.R. Grey
Resistance on Ice (Boys of Winter Book 2) - S.R. Grey
  1. R. Grey’s RESISTANCE ON ICE is a winning addition to the Boys of Winter series. NHL Right Winger, Nolan Solvenson, wants to get Lainey Shelburne back in his bed, but Lainey has put him in the friend zone. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Las Vegas.  It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.

 

We first met both Nolan and Lainey in book one, DESTINY ON ICE.  Nolan is Brent Oliver’s friend/line mate, and Lainey is Aubrey’s little sister.  Nolan and Lainey were secretly hooking up.  They stopped seeing each other.  Now Nolan wants to start things back up with Lainey. However, Lainey wants more and has told Nolan they could only be friends.

 

Nolan is an interesting character.  He has a secret he does not want anyone to discover.  That secret has understandably left him humiliated and untrusting of relationships.  I like Lainey.  She is feisty and brave.  She pulls off stuff I would not have the nerve to do.  Nolan and Lainey are a great couple.  They have hot chemistry and similar personalities.  Lainey instilling the friend rule was the perfect call.  The two end up being very compatible and value their relationship more.

 

The plot was skillfully-executed.  A lot of fun and thrilling things take place.  There are some interesting dynamics in the story, including Aubrey hating Nolan, that makes the story thought-provoking.  I love that Area 51 made a comeback in this story.  I love that RESISTANCE ON ICE began and ended in a similar manner. 

 

I liked the introduction of the Coach Townsend’s daughter, Eliza.  I found it amusing she was a Capital’s fan.  She becomes a good friend to Lainey.  I am looking forward to her and Benny Perry’s story in book three, COMPLICATIONS ON ICE, expected to be released in August 2017.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Resistance - Book 1
Resistance - Carla Jablonski,Leland Purvis,Hilary Sycamore

 

This graphic novel gives us a look at the French Resistance during World War II, and how the war affected everyone, including children. The resistance was a complicated thing, but all efforts were crucial in the fight.

 

This story centers on kids who are naive at first, but gradually realize how dangerous the war is and how much it affects their lives and the people they love.

 

I enjoyed this novel and am looking forward to reading the sequel. I felt for the kids and was as nervous as they were around the soldiers.

 

Great graphic novel for middle school aged kids. My son (8th grader) liked it and brought it home so I could read it too.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Degree of Resistance (Pacifica Rising #1) by Nicola M. Cameron
Degree of Resistance (Pacifica Rising Book 1) - Nicola M. Cameron
Degree of Resistance is the first book in a new series by Nicola M. Cameron in the #Cyberpunk/#Science_Fiction genres. In this series, climate change is real. There is snow in the Sahara, places in India are only inhabitable for about 3 months out of 12, due to the searing heat in the summer and freezing in the winter. After The Warming happened, life was chaos, but some form of normality has been regained. However, it only takes one thing to knock everything off balance. This is what happens to Evie when her boyfriend/fiance dies, and she is suddenly in charge of a 6-year old. She makes decisions and sacrifices, changing her life towards a new direction. Eleven years later, she hears a story from her daughter which throws her life into chaos once again.
 
This is exceptionally well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. The story is intriguing, with lots of twists and turns to keep your interest. There are more shocks and surprises as the book continues. This story is wrapped up nicely, whilst still leaving you wanting more, and leading nicely onto the next book. A new direction from Nicola M. Cameron, and definitely recommended by me.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *
