2022 Book Review: Resistant


Resistant by Rachael Sparks

A Science Fiction, SparkPress in 2018, 296 Pages

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Secondary romance line felt unnecessary and forced. The good news is it’s not a major storyline, which means it’s not a major issue. 
  • Felt a bit younger. This one is an adult science fiction book, but it honestly reads like a young adult book. That’s not entirely a bad thing, but it’s worth noting. 
  • Could’ve gone a bit more indepth with that ending. I had to double check that this wasn’t the first in a series because there is a lot more that could’ve been explored. 

What I Did Like:

  • I LOVE when a book leaves the science in science fiction. This one is PACKED with knowledge that the author, who has a degree in microbiology, brings to the table. It’s realistic and that makes it terrifying in the best way. 
  • The primary romance subplot works. It’s adorable and strong, which is what you want from a romance subplot. 
  • Rory is a great protagonist. She’s strong and hard willed plus she’s smart. I’m a fan!

Who Should Read This One:

  • Science fiction readers who like when science is front and center of a story. 

My Rating: 4 Stars. 

GREAT addition to any science fiction lovers shelf.
