Lynn Hallbrooks
This is the third book in a post-apocalyptic series that picks up from the previous one. There is some violence that is appropriate for the "new normal" the characters find themselves in.

Joel, along with his dad, friend, and dog are journeying to find out what happened to the other part of his family. The road is grueling and some people only want to do them harm. Joel must make some tough decisions. Is he ready for what lies ahead?

All I can say is I'm not sure I'd be able to do the things requi

On The Edge of Your Seat

Resistance picks up Ben, Joel and Allie’s trek through the post-apocalyptic United States in search of other members of their families. The tension temps up as the threesome come face-to-face with desperate survivors and events that have brought out the worst in people. The cliffhanger at the end will leave you on the edge of your seat, eager for the next book in the series.

I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest
The characters + storytelling were very captivating
We continue to follow Ben, Joel, Allie, and Gunner's journey.
Will this journey make them stronger or break them ?
The storytelling + the character's build were awesome!
It has all the ingredients that you need for a great book!
I can't wait for the next book in the series!

I've been reading the books in this series as they've been released and this one has been the most enjoyable so far. The characters have grown on me as they have developed and I've become genuinely engaged in their journey of survival across a post apocalyptic America.

I still find the writing style a bit clunky at times and the books a little on the short side, but there's enough here to keep me interested and coming back for more - particularly after the cliffhanger this one ends on!

On the road trying to get to their families Joel, Ben and Allie are faced with horrors no one thought possible.

Wow I must say this series is getting exciting. The more I read of it the more I want. It’s sucks me right in and I can feel some of the terror and horror these three face together. At the same time I can’t come close to imagining what they’re seeing. Again a lot of detail has gone into some areas of the book, but it’s becoming easier to read through these.

Good series

I have enjoyed this series very much. The only problem is, I wish he just wrote one big. I hate to wait for the next one. The way I read, I forget which series I am reading is which. When will his next book come out on this series? How long do I have to wait?

Good story just wish it was longer

This is a solid entry in the series. The characters, especially Allie and Joel, are becoming more realistic as they learn what it will take to survive in this new world. Looking forward to the next book

Enjoyed and looking forward to the next book. Little improbable that they wouldn't meet more people but the way he left us hanging at the end of this book I think that is about to change. Keep 'em coming.

Survival Adventure Continues

This book continues the journey of the EMP survivors; daily struggles and danger abounds. Everyday brings them closer to their destination and closer to chaos.

An amazing story well written with brilliant characters. An AMP has hit the U.S. We follow Ben Joel and Ellie as they try and get to their families on the east coast. I am looking forward to starting the next book.

Ben, Joel, Allie, and Gunner are on their way east after the catastrophe that has befallen America and the world 🌎. The trip has some harrowing moments and so much is going on in the world, that the group is literally overwhelmed. Will Allie be reunited with her father, will Ben, Joel, and Gunner reach their destination? So many questions but the group is resourceful. A standalone novel in the series but to receive the full range of the story start at book one. Great 👍 series!
Pam Shelton-Anderson
This is a little too short for my taste. It ranges from hair-on-fire action to segments like teaching Allie how to shoot a gun, which was quite dull. There were some chapters that because with a short recap of the end of the previous, like a TV show presenting a taste of where the other left off. I didn't have any problem remembering so it was a bit annoying. The cliff hanger is killer, though.

Loving this series

The main characters are so personable and I love how the dog has become a character too. Unlike some apocalyptic books this one isn’t filled with blood, death and extreme violence which I abhor. Instead there’s intriguing storyline with characters that are really fleshed out. The books are much shorter than I like but I can’t wait to start reading the next book in the series.

OMG ... so boring ... thank god each book in the series is so short. Nothing really happens. Even the "cliffhanger" ending is tepid and void of any action. That being said, I've invested too much in this series to quit now, so I'll trudge on and continue to Book 4. A far better apocalyptic series is Joshua Gayou's Commune series, which I'd highly recommend.

Good storyline, like the main characters

Didn’t write a review after he last book, wanted to be sure of my initial impression. While I enjoyed the story, it ended very soon. Finished this book in a couple of days and thought the same thing. Quick and enjoyable read, but expect the books to be longer.

What do we do?

I enjoyed this book because I was entertained and could not stop reading. I love how they interacted with each other. It was great to see how they handle crisis situations.

Good read.

Miller has complex characters become real to the reader. There is great action that causes the reader to become fully immersed in the world's Miller created within the pages of this series.

Excellent read, well written. My only problem is that this author, for some reason, seems to think that every vehicle on the road when an EMP hit, crashed and burned with no survivors.
I do not agree with that.

I am hung-up on this series. But it is hard to fine the books like these. I like how the family is trying to fine each other.Clear across the country. I have read five of these books but can not fine any more. I would reread this series next year.

Resistance by Bruno Miller

I have really enjoyed this book. The author takes you right along with him. A very vivid account of what America could look like after an EMP is deployed

Good but

I hate cliffhangers but luckily for me there is the next chapter in the series waiting for me. So far Ben, Joel, Allie and Gunner are making slow but steady progress on their journey with having encountered 3 villains who kidnapped Allie.

I enjoyed the 3 books so far and not killing on each page but a good story line of what could happen during this type of event. Looking forward to see how they get off island they are trapped on.

Wow. Talk about cliff hanger. The action between books 2 and this book, book 3, was pretty smooth and seamless. Looking forward to book 4!
