#BookReview for The Queen's Resistance (The Queen's Rising #2) by Rebecca Ross

Synopsis: The highly anticipated sequel to The Queen’s Rising!

Finally, Brienna is a mistress of knowledge and is settling into her role as the daughter of Davin MacQuinn, a disgraced lord who returned to Maevana to reclaim his house. Though she’d just survived a revolution, one that will finally return a queen to the throne, she faces another difficult challenge. She must prove herself trustworthy to the MacQuinns. But as Queen Isolde Kavanagh’s closest confidant, she’ll have to balance serving her father’s house as well as her country. And then there’s Cartier, a wholly separate but desirable factor in her new life.

Aodhan Morgane, formerly known as Cartier ร‰variste, is adjusting to the stark contrast between his pre-rebellion life in Valenia as a master of knowledge and his current one as the lord of a fallen house. During his castle’s restoration, he discovers a ten-year-old boy named Tomas, whose past and parentage are a complete mystery. So when Cartier’s former pupil Brienna is as taken with Tomas as he is, he lets his mind wander—what if he doesn’t have to raise him or his house alone?

As the Lannon trial rapidly approaches, Brienna and Cartier must put their feelings aside to concentrate on forging alliances, executing justice, and ensuring that no one interferes with the queen’s coronation. But resistance is rumbling among the old regime’s supporters, who are desperate to find a weakness in the rebels’ forces. And nothing makes a person more vulnerable than deep-seated love.

My Review: So this one picks up where book one left off.  I am one of those who liked The Queen's Rising but didn't really die hard love it.  But I really kind of wanted to know what was going to happen so when I was tasked with checking this one out I was like sure I can do that.  So as I said this one picks up where book one leaves off and takes off from there.  The pacing in this one was about the same as book one but was a little better.  

Where book one was all about reclaiming the throne and getting the stone. This one centers around politics, power plays, and of course the resistance.  I think the author did a really good job with those aspects of the title.  This one had a lot more action in it which was great.  I still think that it could have been a little faster but for those who read book one and thought that it was really slow. you should totally check this one out because it was a little better. 

One thing that I really didn't care for was the ending.  With these two books feeling very slow the ending felt very very fast.  I think it did sum everything up well but I think it could have been slowed down just a tad.   

In the end this book and series was ok.  I think that some people are going to really enjoy it but others are not.  It has some great characters and wonderful world building but the pacing needed to be fixed overall.  

“Rebecca Ross weaves a tale of hope, valor, and revenge of the most heart wrenching kind. The Queen’s Rising duology is unlike any other YA fantasy novel I’ve read and has been a story my heart had no idea it desperately needed to read.”   (Taylor Beach, Instagram Book Reviewer from @the_bookish_ballad)
