    “I will be standing at the front and if you feel afraid I want you to look at me and know that you are not alone” At first I debated the necessity of writing a review for this book instead of simply writing that these books were going on my favorites list Both these books are on my favorites list because of each other Not that they aren't good enough individually but that they complemented each other so well The first book introduced us to the world as is the virtue of all first books and started with a light hearted story about a girl and her dreams to become a passion Then the story twisted into a complicated plot of restoring the rightful ueen to the throne and displacing the cruel king This book moves on to have a complicated plot in terms of what must he achieved once the ueen has been placed on the throne and to securing her position Emotionally this book is a roller coaster compared to the last one Since the first book introduced us to the characters and have given us the start of their relationships this one takes off with the bond between the characters being much stronger and with meaningA book like The ueen’s Rising could have been left as a standalone given the ending it would have left doubts on the fate of the traitors and their houses but it wouldn’t have been too big of a crime to stop there A seuel to such a book has the potential to disappoint but this book was anything but a disappointment In fact I think it only gets betterThe difficulties with securing Isolde’s position are accompanied by the difficulties of Brienna finding her place in the Macuinn court with citizens who view her as an Allenach and Aodhan rebuilding the Morgane court which has turned to ruins Tensions run high as the supporters of the Lannon rule are yet to be fully unearthed and no one knows if their court is fully secureIsolde starts her rule by allowing the citizens to decide the fate of the prisoners by trialAodhan formerly known as Cartier also has a perspective in this book which allows us a broader view of the world when the characters are in different places giving us different opinions on the same situation In the first book the Maevan houses were named and we saw a few members but in this book we get to watch first hand the functioning of the court the citizens and the stories of the lords and ladies of Maevana during the war and after itThere is definitely depth to this book than the last one because the need to introduce the readers all the new aspects of the world is minimized We dive head first into the new plot which reminds us that running a country after a revolution might be harder than the revolution itselfThe characters are put in demanding situations both mentally and physically They will have to make choices that will test loyalties between houses The book itself feels severe than the first one and the therefore the we see a side of the characters we may not have seen or had to have understood before the events that unfurl in this book Since we now have Cartier’s perspective we see a lot about his past his family the struggles faced by the Morgane house and we also see the burden he carries on his shoulders to make the best decisions for his house and the people he cares aboutIn both books I loved the portrayal of the traditional relationship of Maevan men and women being that the women were capable fighters to protect themselves the mutual respect between men and women how the men accepted the matriarchy and the simple ideology that any Maevan will kill if it means it will protect their family from a threatIf you read the first book and liked it don't hesitate to read this one it only gets better

    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review1 The ueen's Rising ★★★★ “Crowning Isolde Kavanagh as the rightful ueen was not the end of our rising It was merely the beginning” The ueen’s Resistance is book two in Rebecca Ross’s debut series which I think is so underhyped and so underappreciated Seriously friends stop sleeping on this series Because this is exactly the kind of YA fantasy that I’m always on the hunt for; amazing friendships swoon worthy romances medieval setting uniue magic systems and women coming into their power and embracing what has been taken from them by men who fear that power The ueen's Rising focused on our main character Brienna at a school that helps young girls hone sought after specializations And after graduating in one of these sought after trades art music dramatics wit and knowledge you will work under a patron doing a vast array of different things with your skill set But Brienna was sent to this boarding school so that she could go into hiding because the blood that runs through her veins has made her uite the threat to the throne and the world I honestly feel like I can’t say too much about The ueen’s Resistance because it picks up very soon after the end events of The ueen's Rising and a lot of things went down But I will say that Brienna is still very sought after but now she has a very strong found family that helps protect her regardless of what her last name is And even though the revolution is over the rebuilding has just begun and Brienna and her family want to build something worthy of a legacy “If you were a storm I would lie down and rest in your rain If you were a river I would drink from your currents If you were a poem I would never cease to read you” Cartier also gets his own point of view in this book and his journey is also not an easy one because of his bloodline But regardless of the bad things that have happened in his past he always shows empathy and consideration in every situation Seeing him and Brienna grow and grow together is so beautiful and their strength and compassion really knows no bounds Found family is for sure the shining light of this beautiful tale but this is also a book about becoming the person you want to be regardless of the evil acts people have committed with the same last name as you And this is a story about rising up and being what you dream of being not who people expect you to be on account of a last name that you never asked to have “Is it only blood that makes a House? Or is it beliefs? What holds people together ? The red in their veins or the fire in their hearts?” Overall I can’t wait to see what comes next in this world I just fell so in love with these characters and I want to protect them at all costs Rebecca Ross’s writing is so lyrical and beautiful and I really have become so attached to this entire world she has created Again this series is so underhyped and this author has really blown me and my expectations away with this debut series Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Youtube | Twitch The uotes above were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publicationContent and trigger warnings for graphic torture murder death loss of a loved one abuse child abuse domestic violence talk of past rape sex trafficking captivity and slaveryBuddy read with Lea at drumsofautumn ❤

    ♦ Video Review ♦The ueen's Resistance was an amazing seuel to a first book that I already loved This second book only solidified my love for this seriesThis is also a hugely underrated series that much people need to pick up “I love the spirit you are forged from If you were a storm I would lie down and rest in your rain If you were a river I would drink from your currents If you were a poem I would never cease to read you” I feel like I'm not even gonna have that much to say about The ueen's Resistance It picked up directly after the end of The ueen's Rising and I felt like it really followed the themes of the first book So everything I said in my review for that definitely still stands for this seuel as wellI do think that you could tell that after her amazing debut Rebecca Ross improved her writing even I loved how she referenced the events of the first book and it was surprisingly easy to get back into the story thanks to her giving us small recaps throughout the first couple of chapters It was very cleverly doneOne of my favourite things about this story is still just how simplistic it is There's no big focus on any drama or tropes Rebecca Ross doesn't need to rely on any of that to keep you engaged And while I love some good angst and tropes it is so refreshing to read a book where it really seems like there is no need for thatAnd it's so interesting because at the same time this book is full of surprising twists and shocking revelations Somehow Rebecca Ross really managed to pull that offI also really love the world and all of the politics within it I can't wait to explore this even in the seuel and I really hope that even after this trilogy we will return to this world cause I think it has so much potential “Is it only blood that makes a House? Or is it beliefs? What holds people together ? The red in their veins or the fire in their hearts?” But the best thing about this series is all of the characters and their relationships The found family theme still runs strong throughout this book and it is so beautiful There were so many moments related to family that really made me tear upAs someone who truly loves romance I almost think that there's not enough in this book I really love the relationship between Brienna and Cartier and so I wish that we had seen of them together in romantic moments At the same time everything we did get was wonderful and beautiful and I know that a lot of people will be very satisfied with the way the romance is handledWhat really makes this novel stand out in comparison to the first book is some of the darker themes and topics that were included I don't really wanna go into any detail but it really felt like Rebecca Ross was ready to go a big step further than she did in The ueen's Rising and I think it worked incredibly well and was handled with care That said it does deal with some really hard and heavy topics Content and trigger warnings for torture child abuse violence slavery and sex trafficking “She gave me her breath as I gave her mine until my heart was beating in her hands until I felt like she had swallowed all of my secrets” Overall The ueen's Resistance is an amazing seuel that builds on the basis that the first book has provided while adding some really interesting new themes This book has me incredibly excited for what's to come in this series this world and by Rebecca Ross♦ Booktube Channel ♦ Twitter ♦ Instagram ♦✨ Buddy read with Melanie at meltotheany ✨ I received an ARC of this through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review

    Reading this made me feel like a fairytale princessSpecifically Shrek’s Princess Fiona right after she knocks Robin Hood unconscious for being annoying This book is a great example of why character flaws are vital and why Mary Sues should be put to death by any self respecting editor Rebecca Ross isn’t a bad writer She proves this in the Cartier POV chapters Unfortunately she then contradicts this assertion any time we switch to Brienna Mary Sue’s POV There’s not much to work with when YOUR MC IS JUST SO PERFECT AND EVERYONE LOVES HER AND SHE CAN LITERALLY DO NO WRONGNOT THAT I TOOK THIS WASTE OF TIME PERSONALLY OR ANYTHING

    The plot of this book had an odd focus in my opinion but I did enjoy that this was all about the next step immediately after a rebellion has won back the throne This series is exploring the true heir trope in a uniue way I enjoy the world the characters and the writing I love the focus on adoptive familiesAudiobook review The female narrator was good with voices but average with reading The male narrator was poor with female voices but otherwise pretty good Enjoyable enough in this format to recommend

    35 Stars “Is it only blood that makes a House? Or is it beliefs? What holds people together ?” This continues to be a wonderful fantasy series with The ueen’s Resistance being a strong political fantasy ab0ut rebellions family and legacy Picking up right where The ueen’s Rising left off Brienna and Cartier try to navigate Maevana politics and heal from old wound as the country is fundamentally changed Things I Liked This book had all the politics and power plays and I was so here for it I love political fantasy books because they just add so much to the world Seeing how the different alliances and rivalries influence the characters andee drive their actions was so coolI feel like the story introduced some great strong new characters Especially Neeve and Ewa both of which had plenty of screen time that never took away from the main charactersThere was such a natural progression to the story reveals made sense and moved plot forward and nothing felt rushed It made the story super easy to read and fall intoThere was so much action and fighting in the story It was well placed and plotted keeping me engaged and hooked Things I Didn’t Like First chapter felt really long so it was a bit hard for me to get into the story and back into the world But it picked up after chapter 1 and there was enough of a recap without feeling too much to help familiarize myself with the storyMy least favorite part of the story was probably the ending It just felt a little rushed and unsatisfying It was a nice conclusion and I got most of the answers I wanted but 50 pages wouldn’t have hurt my feelingsThis truly is an underrated fantasy series that offers so much worldbuilding and shining character moments that it’s impossible to not fall in love The ueen’s Resistance is a uniue story filled with loveable romances and intricate worldbuilding that crafts a surprising story that sticks with you I received a copy of the book from HarperTeen via Edelweiss in exchange fro an honest review

    This is a solid seuelHere are some of my thoughts• The strong family and friendship themes are what makes this book worth reading I like how it’s not just about the romance or about the political plot Ross has done well in establishing the strength of each relationship It makes me feel so much when I see characters be happy or sad for one another I love how much Luc and Jourdain have become her family now – they are such lovable characters Also I appreciate seeing Brienna forming a strong friendship with the ueen• Cartier gets his own narration in this one and I enjoy it His romance with Brienna is sweet and romantic• Brienna is frustrating at times with her secrecy about her not being accepted as a Macuinn and with the retaliation I feel like it would’ve been smarter to voice her concerns but I can understand why she’d be embarrassed to say them• Brienna definitely goes through a lotttt in this book – way than the previous I appreciate that she has gotten stronger3 stars I like the 1st book better but this is a solid seuel and I have learned to really like certain characters I’m honestly not sure where the next book will go book focuses a lot on the vengeance and healing to gain closure from the dark era I guess it’ll be nice to see a book of that rebuilding and moving forward Things that you might want to know WARNING Spoilers belowHappysatisfying ending? view spoilerYes Not the last book though hide spoiler
