Présentation de l'éditeur

Livia has never felt like she fits in. As normal as it sounds, Livia is anything but ordinary. She can feel every emotion of every single person around her, and it’s maddening. In pursuit of some psychic quiet, she moves with her family from New York City to Whidbey Island in the lush and sleepy Pacific Northwest. But when a horseback riding accident in her new home gives her a broken leg that heals in a day, she finds that another unexplainable ability has manifested, and her life isn’t about to get any easier.

Adam has no problem fitting in and making friends. In fact, he’s the top of the school, the boy everyone knows and loves. However, people only see what he allows them to. No one knows what Adam is truly capable of. After witnessing Livia’s accident, Adam sees something intriguing in her quick recovery, something that gives him hope that he’s not alone.

Adam is the only one whose emotions Livia can’t read. Afraid of not knowing what goes on behind his dark eyes, Livia decides to keep him at a distance. Yet the more she tries to ignore him, the more alluring he becomes, and while their personal quests for identity will inevitably bring them closer together, it is the confirmation of what they really are that threatens to tear them apart.

Resilient, told in alternating point of views, is a gripping paranormal love story of survival and romance, in which two teenagers face the consequences of being anything but normal.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant! 27 août 2013
Par Julie L. Casey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is an intriguing story told alternately from two points of view: the first a girl named Livia, and the other a boy named Adam, both of whom have enhanced physical traits. The story is very absorbing, one you just can't put down, but what amazed me most about it was that the two voices were so distinct and believable. I got to know and love the main characters early on in the book and can't wait for a sequel. This book is a highly recommended read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Debut Series! 1 septembre 2013
Par kindlemom1 (My Guilty Obsession) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I have a feeling that Ms. Vanasse is going to be one author we are all going to love and want to watch as her name and her work grows. I truly am blown away but her writing and can't even believe this is her debut novel. The whole book was so well done, so well thought out and executed that I am sad it is over. I want more and I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Livia and Adam.

This story was completely engaging and had me enthralled from the very first page. It has been awhile since I have been this excited about something in the YA genre. It is rare that you come across something that isn't just a poor initiation or copy cat of those books or series we have all come to love and know. For whatever reason it really is hard finding something unique in the YA fantasy department and Vanasse has managed to create something that I think will appeal not only to those that love YA but to those that love fantasy and the paranormal as well. I am not a huge fantasy fan but this was right up my alley and appealed to me on so many levels. I loved Livia and Adam, their strong personalities, their abilities, their relationship, their families, I really enjoyed it all.

This may be a new series from a new, unheard of author, but it won't stay that way. I have a feeling people will be talking about this book, this series and the author a lot over the next few months as word gets around about her and more and more people give this one a try. I can see so many people falling in love with the writing and the characters and whole concept behind who Adam and Livia are. I know I am a fan and I can't wait to read more so much so that I am not even going to tell you any more about what this book holds, I am simple going to tell you to pick it up and experience it for yourself, I don't think you will be disappointed and I can only see this series getting better and better as it goes. The ending was a little bit of a cliffhanger though but in a good way. It left me wanting more and anxious for the next book to be out.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 But she doesn't empathize with him... 5 septembre 2013
Par Jaclyn Canada - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I couldn't pass up signing on for this blog tour since I really enjoy reading about people with supernatural powers. It must stem from my love of all things X-Men.

The Good

I enjoyed the supernatural powers the kids had and diving into them all as they developed. The story is told in dual POVs with Livia and Adam narrating. Each of these characters have powers that they don't understand and that no one else in their families do so it bonded them together (without them even knowing it at first.)

There is the catalyst of some people being after them so an air of mystery and danger follows them through the pages. There were quite a few times that I didn't know who to trust and I love that.

There were also a few things in this book that I haven't read about often before including horses and adopted kids. The change of pace to me was nice as was learning tidbits about things I haven't read up on a lot previously.

The story-line is really great. I am looking forward to the following installment so I can see where all this leads.

The Bad
The characters have a bit of immaturity that annoyed me at times. I'm hoping that this aspect turns into character growth throughout the story-line.

Resilient was mainly learning about the characters, their powers, who to trust, and what the story really is. The ending is a major cliff-hanger and I was disappointed that more didn't happen in this story. All that went on in this book set up the next installment very well, but I feel like with the way it was written and the ending that the second one will actually be better because of it. I was lucky to get to read an epilogue and the first chapter of the next book so I really appreciated that.

The Romance
Adam and Livia make a cute couple. They fit together rather well and since I got to read each of their thoughts, I know they both truly care about each other a lot. They have a very YA love, but it's a nice little romance to read.

Conclusion
Overall the powers and story-line are very interesting and I want to know more about Adam and Livia and where their story goes from here. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book since there is so much going on at the end of this one. Recommended for readers of YA Paranormal that don't mind the cons that I've listed.

I thoroughly enjoyed Resilient and look forward to the next in the series. Although I am often annoyed when authors change points of view when telling a story, the transitions were handled well in Resilient. I became caught up in the story from the beginning and found the story line intriguing. The ending definitely sets us up for the sequel and I, for one, look forward to it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Read! Wish the next book was out now!! 27 novembre 2013
Par Veronica Vasquez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This was a very captivating tale of suspense, love, and believing in yourself. I found it really hard to put down, especially at about the half-way mark and then on. Once I had reached that point, I stayed up until the middle of the night reading it, finally had to force myself to go to sleep, and finished it the next day. I loved this story and I am so glad to know there is at least one more on the way. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves suspense or paranormal romance. I absolutely loved how it was told through alternating viewpoints of the main characters, Livia and Adam. Patricia Vanasse is a wonderful author and I look forward to further books in this series, as well as any others that she writes.
