5* Resilience Review

I knew instantly that this was going to be a favorite series of mine. I loved Regina straight from the get go, and the plot was seriously made for me. This covers many buzzwords for me, a few being DNA, environmental collapse, climate change.

Regina was such an awesome character. I felt that she portrayed so much that many authors like to hide about characters, the human side. She was a young teenager, living in a tough time, and she rose to the challenge, but at times you could still see that 15 year old shining through. And I loved that aspect. It’s nice, and it brings the story to a grounded level, one that as a reader I can connect with.

The plot of this book was perfect. It has Regina on the run from a Department of Antiquities officer due to Regina’s special DNA. This entire part of the book had me completely enthralled, and I can’t wait to find out more. It’s a storyline that, personally, I haven’t seen done. And done this well. Lance Erlick really knows how to keep the story moving, but at the same time giving the reader enough information that they aren’t fumbling along.

This book takes the much used dystopian trope and gives it a new set of wings. I think Lance Erlick did a fantastic job spinning a unique tale, and one that I can’t wait to continue one with. I am so glad I have book two waiting and ready to be started!
