Gripping action, provocative ideas, and shocking revelations in a dystopian novel that fans of Patrick Ness and Veronica Roth will devour.

Thank you Bloomsbury Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review.


I just run. I run as fast as my lungs and legs will carry me. The voice comes at me again. It's Silas. "Run, Alina! ALINA!"

Even though Resist was not as stunning as Crossan's first instalment, Breathe, Resist was still a thoroughly enjoyable book compact with action, survival and persistence. I just was hoping for a little more from every

Možná, že kdybych se po celou dobu čtení nesnažila vymyslet 100 + 1 vtipných způsobů usmrcení hlavních i vedlejších i všech ostatních hrdinů / nehrdinů, užila bych si to.

Jenže možná je jako kdyby.
A na kdyby žádný slušný člověk nehraje.

Hulka na tebe, autorko jedna. Zabilas své skvělé nápady. Jsi vrah!

Such an amazing sequel and ending to the series, unexpected and thrilling this duet is seriously special and well worth reading if you like the dystopian genre and a nice, thick plot!

I thought the first book had potential but lacked character development. This book stills lacks character development but the plot is absurd. Not enough is explained, the action doesn't flow well from one scene to the other, and some parts don't make sense. I had way too many questions at the end. The story starts where Breathe (book 1) left off with Quinn, Bea, and Alina being tossed out of the pod and looking for Sequoia, another oasis to get oxygen. Or is it? Jazz, Bea, and Quinn are fleeing ...more

After reading this, THANK YOU GOD FOR OXYGEN!

The sequel and I believe also the last book in this series -don't quote me on that- was more gripping, shocking for sure, and had me more than the first book. No spoilers of course but there was more things going on in this and we get to see that in many point of views.

First thing comes in mind about this was shocking. About maybe 24%, 11 chapters in, I literally jumped out of my bed and started screaming. I did not see that coming. I can't even... I

Ik heb enorm genoten van het herlezen van Breathe en Resist. Deze duologie weet je van begin tot eind op het puntje van je stoel te houden en onderscheidt zich door haar enorm originele world building en een goed uitgewerkte diversiteit aan karakters. Helaas vond ik het einde iets te kort door de bocht en had ik graag wat extra achtergrondinformatie gelezen over deze interessante toekomstvisie. Desondanks wil ik deze boeken enorm graag aanraden, omdat het verhaal super spannend is en het je zeke ...more

Tohle byla docela smršť. Myslím si, že tenhle díl byl lepší než předchozí. Napínavější, akčnější, na jednu stranu také dost smutný, ale co, to k tomu patří. Dopadlo to tak, jak to dopadlo a jak asi i mělo a já jsem spokojená. Trochu mě mrzí, že ještě není nějaké pokračování. Hodně mi tenhle příběh i postavy přirostly k srdci a budou mi chybět. Především Quinn s Beou a i Ronan, který mě neskutečně mile překvapil.

Co si mám o téhle knize myslet?
Nápad s kapsulemi, systémem a světem bez kyslíku byl dobrý. Fakt jo. Jenže autorka si to pojala po svém... a tím tak všechno nadějné zabila. První polovina knihy ještě šla, ale v té druhé jsem už ztratil chuť číst. Bylo to dlouhé, místy nezajímavé a trvalo mi strašně dlouhou dobu, než jsem se mohl začíst. Postavy mi mnohdy přišly jednotvárné, ploché a jako kdyby to byly jenom figurky, které se pohybují na jakýsi příkaz. A ten epický konec? Tam jsem si akorát ověři

This book was the squeal and final book in the breathe series, it was gripping, shocking for sure, and had me more than the first book at times. New characters make an appearance in this book we don't get 3 different perspectives but now 4 different ones in this book we have Bea, Quinn, Alina and now Ronan.

První díl téhle série se mi líbil svou originalitou. Že lidé žijí ve světě, kde není kyslík, a proto se uzavírají do kapsulí, kde je kyslík uměle vyráběn. Tohle všechno mi přišlo skvělé, bohužel celé provedení trochu pokulhávalo. A ve druhém díle už to pokulhávalo o dost víc, proto jsem z něj byla spíše zklamaná.

Hlavním kamenem úrazu bylo pro mě to, že jsem si nebyla schopná vybavit, co se dělo v jedničce, nebo kdo jsou postavy, které například příběh vyprávějí. Není to tak úplně chyba knihy, sp

In dieser spannenden Fortsetzung hat es die Autorin geschaffen mich wieder einmal in ihren Bann zu ziehen!
Nachdem wir wissen dass Sauerstoff ein wichtiges Gut ist und dass die Organisation Breathe den Sauerstoff kontrolliert. Wissen wir auch um die extremen Klassenunterschiede und um das Regime das dies rücksichtslos durchsetzt.
In diesem zweiten Teil nach der Zerstörung des Hains und der Flucht nach Sequoia merkt man schnell das aufgeben für die Menschen nicht in Fragen kommt und

Teil 2 der Breathe-Reihe schließt nahezu nahtlos an den ersten Teil "Gefangen unter Glas" an.
Der Rebellen-Hain wurde durch die Kuppel-Soldaten zerstört und nur wenige Mitglieder konnten fliehen, darunter Alina. Gemeinsam mit den restlichen Überlebenden machen sie sich auf den Weg nach Sequoia.
Zu den drei bereits bekannten Erzählperspektiven von Quinn, Bea und Alina kommt nun noch eine vierte hinzu: Oscar. Auch hier ist es geschickt gelöst, mehrere Perspektiven einzuführen, um die an verschiedene

Wow. This was a perfect conclusion to a really good duology. I gave the first book, Breathe, 4 stars, as I liked it a lot. So I was interested in reading Resist and seeing how the sequel compared. And I loved it. It was so good! It was fast paced, exciting, dramatic, everything you'd want from a dystopian conclusion. The ending was possibly a little rushed. We never found out what happened to Vanya really, and the rebellion was kind of skipped over. It was hard to tell what happened i

Resist did nothing to pull me in emotionally.

I thought I may as well start this review with brutal honesty. I can tiptoe around it, but this is by far the biggest issue of Resist. I wasn't a fan of Breathe, but I read a review that spoke so highly of Resist that I convinced myself that it deserved another chance. So, here we are.

The characters were barely distinguishable to me. Alina was fierce, Bea was strong, Quinn was umm, mature? Ronan was the only one I

Last year, I was completely taken by surprise by how much I loved Sarah Crossan's Breathe despite the multiple mixed reviews from blogger friends. I was more than excited to begin Resist because I wanted to know how everything ended for the characters that I grew to cherish in the first book of the series. While Resist ended on a positive note, I was still disappointed by the lack of answers to some questions I had in the first book.

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

The final book in Sarah Crossan’s Breathe duology ends with more than a few gasps and even more POVs. Quinn, Bea, and Alina are once again the protagonists, and joining them is Ronan. The multiple POVs worked in BREATHE since the group was together for most of the book, but in RESIST, not so much. One storyline was inevitably much more interesting than the others (Ronan’s was particularly dull), and it was at times rather jarring and frustrating to get

This book was a very satisfying read, though it was a bit confusing at points. It is full of action, from start to finish, with several tension peaks throughout the story. There were some unexpected deaths, so watch out for them. The very end felt a bit rushed, and, because of that, it was a bit confusing at points.

My biggest challenge was remembering who on earth were all the characters, especially considering that this book has several POVs. In truth, I never remembered who were all of them, b

Her and Quinn are thrown back into the fray of the government and when they are they are separated. The separation helps them become stronger and more determined to beat the odds and show others that they should resist and fight.

Young adult dystopian novels are all the rage right now. Go to any bookstore and there will be a huge display of these books. While they are a refreshing change from all the young adult vampire books of a few years ago, I’m not sure that this trend is one I’d like to see continued. I find that dystopian books depress me. I’m saddened to see society devolve to such lows. I find that a lot of these books lack hope.

For example, the world of Resist is a world where breathable oxygen is seriously la
