Resistance (The 1000 Revolution #6) by Pippa DaCosta

My body is a hollow shell where my heart and soul used to reside before it was cruelly ripped to shreds by the talented Ms Pippa DaCosta.

Resistance can NOT be read as a stand-alone story. At the very least you need to read book #5, though to be honest even that might not be enough and why would you want to deprive yourself of four other books of Caleb filled deliciousness?

There were a great many things about Caleb Shepperd I liked,
and none of them were logical.

One, Resistance by Pippa DaCosta

Oh One, when will you finally get to be free? Please don’t let it be out there amongst the stars, on your own. And Caleb, life really has dealt you a crappy hand but despite it all there is still a really good guy underneath all the tarnish and bluster. And the rest of the guys all deserve their own little slice of peace and happiness.

After my reluctant nod, Fran piloted the ungainly Starkiller to the shuttle’s coordinates with all the skill and finesse i’d expect of an ex-fleet commander, although I’d never tell her that. Her ego was already big enough for the both of us.

Caleb, Resistance by Pippa DaCosta

Beware, once you step aboard the Starkiller you are in for one heck of a bumpy ride. Up becomes down, left becomes right and enemies become, well, if not quite friends at least temporary allies. This book gave me all the feels, every single damn one, including several that were not welcome, not at all (#passmethekleenex, #uglycry).

Whilst previous work by the author may have inferred intimacy between characters, this was much less subtle in its honesty. Whilst there are no very intimately graphic scenes, we are aware that some characters may get to bump their uglies.

This kiss was nothing but a meeting of mouths and tongue, but it didn’t feel like nothing. It felt like safety, and comfort, and warmth. It felt like home.

One, Resistance by Pippa DaCosta

The ending left me spinning alone out there, amongst the stars, in the black. I’m fairly certain it’s obvious from my random mumblings that this story has left me with one HUGE book hangover, and I’m still not quite sure how I’m going to process it. 

Count the stars…

Listen… I need you to know… you saved me in all the little ways. There ain’t no power in the nine strong enough to stop me from saving you back.

Caleb, Resistance by Pippa DaCosta

This book left me senses a-reeling, heart shattered and emotions pummelled. I simply had no words, no words at all, for a while and could only express my thoughts and feelings via gifs. I’ve included that here because – hey it wasn’t easy given the fragile state of my mind at the time. So for the more visual learners amongst you here is my 0riginal review that I posted, whilst I cobbled together my broken psyche.

So I started out feeling all


and that quickly progressed to


as we plunged into


before suddenly hitting this moment


We will pause here for a while, rocking quietly in our corner, possibly sucking our thumb and definitely sobbing into a handkerchief.

Yes the author did THAT author thing. I should have seen it coming, she’d dropped enough hints on her FB page but I stupidly didn’t think she would be so cruel!

eventually this led to


and a bit of


to which I was 100%


and then it all went


with a bit lot more


before ending on


Yeah. I just can’t at the moment, but you DO need to read this and join my in my strange mix of misery and joy. I’m still not sure if I’ll ever forgive the author though.

“This shit is why you always kill the bad guy.”
Wanted dead or alive by the law and every criminal this side of the jump gates, there’s only one place Caleb and his crew can hide:
All the crap in the Nine systems washes up there.
With their rustbucket tugship Starkiller about to cough its last space-mile and credits scarce, raiding a few scrappers rigs is a last resort. Scrappers are hard bastards, but then so is Caleb.
Stealing from the bad guys should be easy, if Caleb’s crew can get their shit together. The pressure is on. Trust is a joke. And then there’s One. New and improved but just like her old self? Or not…
One says there’s a revolution brewing, and she’d know.
Synthetics move among us, their strings pulled by a mad man. The Nine Systems teeters on the edge of a war it can’t see coming, and Caleb’s crew might be all that stands in its way.
Sometimes it takes bad guys to kill bad guys, and if Caleb’s crew have learned anything together, it’s how to be bad.

5 stars – This is a book I will not forget and would definitely read again.

4 stars – I really enjoyed this book, I might not read it again but I would definitely recommend it to others.

3 stars – This story was good but either forgettable or just very typical of its genre.

2 stars – Whilst the book was readable I either didn’t enjoy parts of the plot or just could not connect to the main characters.

1 star – This is a book I simply could not finish for reasons listed in the review.
