Resonance by J. A. Belfield & Giveaway (INT)

Release Date: April 2nd 2013
Title: Resonance
Series: Holloway Pack 2.5
Publisher: J. Taylor Publishing


Guilt is a heavy burden for the one carrying it.

Jem Stonehouse is no exception to this rule.

What if she’d acted sooner? What if she’d fully recognised the threat? What if she hadn’t allowed the male pack members to head into the witches’ ambush?

For one, youngest pack member Josh Larsen wouldn’t be trapped in the sleep of the dead.

Now, Jem is convinced it’s her job to bring him back to life no matter what it takes— learning more about her heritage, risking pack exposure, or travelling to places she couldn’t have imagined possible.

Even if the journey endangers her soul.

Disclaimer: Resonance is, by no means, intended to be read as a standalone. If you haven’t read at least Blue Moon, then you will have absolutely no idea what is happening in Resonance. Also, if you haven’t read Blue Moon, then you will be hit upside the head with one massive spoiler for how the book ends if you read Resonance first.

My View: I read Blue Moon (Holloway Pack#2) last year and really liked it. So as soon as Resonance was in my inbox, I started and finished it within the same day. Yeah, right, I know. I am kind of impatient when it comes to series I love. Even though I hadn’t read either of Instinct (Holloway Pack, #0)Eternal (Holloway Pack, #0.5)Darkness & Light (Holloway Pack, #1)Into The Unknown (Holloway Pack #1.5), Blue Moon worked great as standalone. However, do not mistake that for Resonance. It is not meant as a standalone. You must atleast read Blue Moon first.

Resonance is kind of dark. It’s fast, it’s visual and it’s mind-boggling. The concept is just a little difficult to grab at first but then it sticks to you. I had the movie going on in my head all the time while reading.

The book is such a tease. It almost finished a second after starting. Yes, I felt just like that! I was having a panic attack looking at the inching 100% on my Kindle while going all the time like ‘no, no, no’.

As always, you have to love Jem for her strong headedness, her strength and her perseverance. Love the chemistry and playful banter between Jem and Josh.

And I have no idea how to say something else without giving anything away. It’s frustrating not being able to go ga-ga over something I really liked. So you better read that book quick so we can have a chat.

On a last note (J. A. Belfield, if you’re reading this, I’m done. Go now. Bye.), I wanted to hit the author over her head once I finished reading because by the end, I was craving so much for more of Holloway Pack that it was almost painful. And this short little novella did nothing to quench that thirst for reading more.

    1. I know how messy that can get and that’s precisely why I haven’t started too many series I should have already read. Hope you get to this one sometime and like it.


  1. That is a good sign that you were looking at the Kindle percentage worrying that it was nearly over. I am always looking wondering if it is almost over. Thanks for sharing I will add this to my list.


      1. I, um … sometimes? :p
        And soooooooooon. You already know you’ll get an ARC, so at least you won’t have to wait as long as everyone else. 😀
