A year after his encounter with the Bakzen, Wil is still grappling with his upcoming role in the war.

The romance in this book takes up way too much page-time. I would say the relationship between Wil and Saera (a brand new character) comprises about 75% of this novel. Which is surprising considering how underdeveloped their relationship ends up being. You see, Wil and Saera are soulmates. They have a "resonance connection," whatever that is. They see each other once, and are then obsessed with each other for the rest of the book. It's insta-love, and it's boring. These perfect characters have a ...more

I received an ARC from the author AMY DUBOFF, in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey's very honest opinion of BONDS OF RESOLVE. First let me say this- this is the first time I have read any books written by Ms Duboff. Saying this - even knowing that I am a fan of sci-fi. I was still unsure of her writing. But once I started reading - I was amazed with her writing talent and her ability of creativity She has out done herself - to the point that you actually believe and see everythin ...more

Part 3 sees the introduction of Saera Alexander, a young woman from Earth, who is a new recruit at the TSS, and on her first day makes an incredible impact on Wil as they cross paths. As they see each other for the first time, there is a shockwave in the resonance surrounding them that leaves them both reeling from the strength, and totally enthralled with each other.
Bonds of Resolve has multiple story lines, each that are rather fascinating, and it is easy to see that DuBoff is a master storyt

Books 1-3 were good clean book for juvenile readers I suppose but not enough for me to read any further. If they had some "stand alone" content, maybe...but they don't. Everything in these three books could be condensed into one book and not lose one thing of importance. Stretching this out to 7 or more books would be just painful. It ain't Star Wars for sure!
Also, no matter what their names were or what their gender was supposed to be, they all came across as juvenile female or unisex or somet

This is a great series! I love how the author has created such a unique universe, and continues to surprise me with each book. Very well written, and great dialog. The characters draw you in, and make you feel like you're part of the story! I highly recommend this series! ...more

Fantastic Dynastic Space Opera Success #3 of 3


Amy DuBoff's third "Cadicle" series novel hits the same high quality as the first two books of this series. There are a few more plot twists, and we learn (as the characters do) more about previously revealed mysteries. Without revealing the plotlines, the primary protagonist, Wil, and his love, are beginning to understand some of the ramifications that have been kept secret.

“Topnotch Author And Fantastic Series.”

In book #3 of the Cadicle series, young Wil Sights is in training for Junior Agent and preparing for his Internship graduation, but the Priesthood and the Tararian Selective Service have more plans for the 16-year-old. They are rushing him forward towards his final tests to see how powerful his telekinetic energy really is. He has been bred for this role, chosen in stealth by the Priesthood through secret maneuvers within his bloodline. Now a young woman, S

I have read the first two books in this series and I continue to be intrigued and connected to the characters. This is a great series!

DuBoff’s well-paced and captivating multidimensional story continues with our young hero, Wil, at the center of the intrigue. He is to be the leader to end a longstanding war that will be fought using advanced telekinetic abilities. As the story continues to unfold we find Wil developing telekinetic abilities that are as exciting as they are concerning.

By far, this is my favorite of the three books in The Cadicle series. This time we’re not focusing completely on the boy genius/future commander Wil. Enter Saera, outcast, intelligent, shy, unlikely candidate from Earth, who takes the opportunity to join the TSS as a new beginning to her life. She quickly realizes she can only escape her specific situation, not the behaviors that caused it. Saera decides to fully embrace her choice and be the best at what the TSS can make her. Her intelligence a ...more

This is the 3rd book in the Cadicle series. Wil, a prodigy with a destiny that scares him is doing what must be done, but has no friends and no hope. A new batch of trainees enter the TSS and in the process he meets someone who understands his pain. The TSS is gearing up for war and the trainees don't know their future, but Wil does and carrying that burden alone is not easy but sharing that future with someone else is even more difficult. While in many ways this 3rd book is about Wil and Saera ...more

The third installment of Cadicle was excellent. Now Wil is in his final training period and new trainees are coming in to TSS. The action mostly centers around Wil finishing up his last bit of training and his tutoring and teaching of other TSS students. He gets a love interest! Hooray!

I liked this one a bit better than the previous (second) book but I'm not sure why. I think here perhaps it's because Wil is a bit more in control of his own destiny, which is good, although it might just be an i

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for sharing my fair and honest opinion *

My first thoughts upon finishing this book? I need more, like yesterday preferably. In this third book in Amy DuBoff’s Cadicle series we follow Wil, and I honestly couldn’t get enough! Just like the earlier two books, the author has a way of crafting both setting and characters to have you feeling like you are truly part of the story. I feel like with each book in this series, it’s like peeling back layers. You a

This installment is definitely the best of the series so far. The longer length allowed for more depth in characters and the universe, which I felt lacked in the previous books. The addition of Saera gave a much needed reprieve from the focus on men in the series so far. However, there is still an overabundance of men and a severe lack of women. in the preview for the next book, a group of "twenty young men" was mentioned, so my frustration of women being absent or portrayed as weaker than men w ...more

Another fun book in the series, though I can tell this is a prequel series. The style reminds me of Terry Brooks, where each book is set way far about with whole new characters. I'm not the biggest fan of the style, but I see it's leading up to the main series where the action will be more immediate with the timeline closer. Looking forward to getting to the main series! ...more

Felt like a new book..

..but familiar. Really nice feeling for the characters and seeing them grow. Would be nice to have some more reading about the travels he made on the ship to gain gather support for the attack on the water world. Maybe a separate series? Overall it was a great read!

I have always loved science fiction—books, movies, shows and games. If it involves outer space, even better!

Most of my writing is character-driven, which traces back to my time as a Psych major in college. I love to blend science and fantasy, especially when it comes to metaphysical abilities. I publish both under A.K. DuBoff and Amy DuBoff.
