    Dnf 67% bored to tears. I skipped ahead to the last chapter & read a major twist but tbh I just don’t care to continue the series. 1 star.

    Much better This one is loads better than the first one! Tons of action, answers and adventures! I’m really looking forward to reading the next one and I hope it’s more geared towards mature audiences because I’m a sap like that.

    Whoa! Talk about twists and turns. This book keeps you on your toes. You have a notion of what is going to happen and bam the author hits you with a whole new level! Heck yeah. A great read learning more about Brohn, Kress, Rain, Card, Manthy, and the rest of the seventeens!

    The Dystopia and Adventure Continues I will be honest, second books in trilogies are not my favorites. I didn’t like Render as much as Recruitment, either. But I kept in mind that it’s a second. Authors are forced to recap and set up for the showdown simultaneously. But Riley does give us meat, and the last 25% of the book lives up to the excellence of Recruitment.

Manthy is reluctantly heroic, as she uses her gift, and I believe Brohn’s gift is a little more than hinted at. Secrets are revealed. And the past comes back to help lead to the future.

    I liked the first book and loved this one. It has the same appeal as the Hunger Games trilogy. I love the voice of this author, the characters are rich and developed - even those that have bit parts. There are strings of really great prose at times. I struggled with a couple of small plot gaps and twists/timelines that didn’t seem too plausible. The characters don’t experience much value-change but the dialogue is great and there is good action.

    I am going to be honest with you guys, I normally do not like the second book in a dystopian series, but I loved to Render a lot more than Recruitment! I love all of the twists and turns and I could not at all put this book down! I finished it in a couple of hours because I felt like I was apart of the Conspiracy.

When they were mourning I right alongside them mourning. I thought that Kress would be my favorite character because in many ways we are alike, but I think that Wisp was my favorite character in this book. I love the way that we were able to see her grow so much from the girl who was thrown from her brother to a girl who is now leading the resistance. She has grown so much and I know that Brohn is so proud of her. This book was so much better than the first because it does not have a prolonged beginning. The book starts right after the Conspiracy has escaped. As you read this book you really start to connect with each person. You start to see them grow into people they never thought possible. While the recruitment of the seventeens was not a great thing, I feel as though each character was able to grow so much because of it. They were able to figure out who they were. They were also able to grow closer together.

    3.75⭐️ This book was enjoyable! I loved reading about their adventures to San Fransico. Few things I would critique... 1. I feel like it was TOO easy to get to San Fransico. I think there should have been a little more action/problems that happened along the way. 2. Sometimes, I’m the story, the author went a few days or weeks without explaining what happened between them, which I personally don’t like. I always feel like I miss something. 3. I wish the author would have written more about Brohn a 3.75⭐️ This book was enjoyable! I loved reading about their adventures to San Fransico. Few things I would critique... 1.

And what they have been through, I think they should be connected more than they are. 4. Slight text errors, but nothing too distracting. However, Despite my personal critiques, I do like reading this series, and it’s worth the read. I am excited to see how the third book goes! Let do this!😍

    LOVED this book. The first book was fantastic, but this one takes you on an even bigger adeventure. Kress and the Seventeens are lucky, smart and stick together like a family. They are discovering who they are, learning about the war, figuring out who the "bad guy" is and making a plan.

Their survival is the key to saving their world. The style of writing is wonderful. The writing flows and the descriptions are detailed. The main characters and the people they meet are never boring. 5 stars, for sure, and I can't wait to start book 3!

    The second book in The Resistance trilogy. Kress and her friends, having escaped the Processor, set off on a journey to spread the shocking truth about the war. The story picks up nicely where it left off. It was an entertaining read, and I enjoyed it more than the first book. However, I found it really implausible that a little 13-year old girl could turn into a confident leader within a few months. I also think that the relationship between Kress and Brohn lacked spark.

Between the questionable timeline and a young girl showing up and somehow being accepted as a leader of the resistance and is in charge of everything, it was a mess.

    Confusing? The second book was a just as difficult to get into as the first. There are parts that don't make sense and quite unfeasible. I get its a dystopian story but to have the whole world relying on just give people and no one else standing up to a corrupt world except give teenagers and a very unlikely 13 year old who everyone just listens to without question. Since the story takes place over a few months it seems unlikely that these characters came into their roles so quickly with no devel Confusing?

    This book was almost unbearable to read. I read the first book which was okay but SLOW. Hoped for better in the second because I read some dumb review saying it was amazing and had some answers. LOL some answers after 85 percent finished with the book. And the plot twist at the end was so dumb I wanted to stop reading right there. I skipped so many paragraphs here and there because they were so detailed for absolutely no reason. I can’t even finish the series after that dumb plot twist.

    Render book 2 of the Resistance Trilogy has some serious growth from book 1. While I do like this book more than the second book it has more ~drama~ in it.

Honestly, was it too hard to make it Press’ dad or literally ANYONE more believable than a barely minted teen?! I would’ve rated it lower but the writing was still good enough to redeem it slightly.

    Keeps getting better I just can’t express how much I love these characters! The plot thickens yet again, the stakes are raised, and there’s even more mystery to uncover. This author has painted a marvelous dystopian backdrop that’s raw and deep, beyond what a lot of other dystopian stories have done. There are elements thrown in that you never would have thought to pair together. This is inventive and exciting and I’m off to get book 3 right now!

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 In a world fractured by lies and misinformation, a young woman and her “conspiracy” may be the only hope. YA Dystopian by K.A. Riley Kress and her friends have survived a lot in their 17 years. But their battle is far from over. With hearts of gold, rock-solid relationships and even some confusing but cool af abilities surfacing, they will take on their greatest enemy. Looking forward to book 3!

    For smart teenagers these kids are horribly dumb sometimes. This book was too long on some unnecessary parts of their journey and way too short on details of what's actually going on. Rain and Cardyn are useless characters, no idea why they're still even around. And yes I understand the teenage romance angle that has to exist (for some stupid reason) in every YA but for God's sake, dial it back a bit.

    Slow and uneventful I wasn't impressed with this sequel. There was no edge of your seat material or anything fast paced to want you to keep turning the pages. I'm not one to not finish a book, and as I've read the first two I will give the third in the series a read. I just hope, as I did with this one, that there is more action that encourages you to root for the remaining seventeens. Slow and uneventful I wasn't impressed with this sequel.

    Okay nit great for me This book was just okay for me. I liked the first one better, maybe this was a set up for the third... I don’t know but it seemed to drag and didn’t hold my interest much. It me forever to finish. But I will keep trucking along to see where we go. And the last part... I just don’t know about that... hmm...

    Good trilogy Riley is a good story teller. This series has harmonics to our world right now. In that regard this is definitely a cautionary tale. It is also a tale of the power of friendship and loyalty and our strength is in unity for good.

    I enjoyed this book, although not quite as much as the first. I think this served as a nice bridge between the first and the third in the series, tying up loose ends from book one and seeing things in place for book 3.

    A great second book in the trilogy..... They have escaped but what happens now?? How do they get the revenge they crave? Who will , after being thought dead, he found far from their home?? These questions will be answered in this sequel. Highly recommended.

    These books are definitely slow at getting to the point and purpose, but still somehow does it amazingly. I never want to put the books down. So much happened in such a short book. Can't wait to see what happens next. These books are definitely slow at getting to the point and purpose, but still somehow does it amazingly. I never want to put the books down.
