Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
In this second book of The Resistance series Garritt’s twin Baylee takes center stage. Baylee has a hard time being a leprechaun, but when she is captured, she must figure out if she wants to be a normal teenager, an elf for her people or a ruler of leprechauns and elves.
Damon is in love, and even though what he did was wrong, he did it for all the right reasons. When Baylee disappears in front of his eyes he must go the wrong way to get her back.
I read the first book in the series, The Resistance: Leprechaun in April. I loved it, and gave it 4 stars, so I was looking forward to reading the sequel, The Resistance: Duchess. However, sometimes the second books in a series can be a huge let down, so I was also a bit worried.
I didn’t need to be. I enjoyed this book even more than the first.
Leprechauns are awesome. Seriously, ther are just not enough books about leprechauns. They have such a rich history in folklore and myth yet they’re hardly featured in nowadays YA lit, so I’m glad author Kristyn Stone is here to change that. In this book, Baylee, twin sister of Garritt, the protagonist from book one, takes center stage.
Baylee has to make some tough choices in this book which further explores the world of leprechauns, elves and humans. In typical YA fashion, there’s also some romance, a lot of difficult choices to make, and an intriguing cast of the characters. I can’t wait for the author’s next book.
