Resist by M. Ainihi is yet another enthralling installment of the Blood Inheritance series. Hurt and alone, Amanda traverses the chaos realm trying to discern its secrets. Along the way, she tries to blend in with the inhabitants of the place, ending up meeting the daughters of the celestial - Sophia, Akila, and Mia - who advise her to unite the seven half-bloods to stand a chance in the upcoming battle with the celestial. In the human realm, Emily and Kiami continue their journey to search for the last half-blood, resulting in Kiami reuniting with her guardian, which evokes conflicting feelings inside her. Will Amanda and her friends be able to withstand the powers of the celestial? What will it cost for them to do so?
The most impressive aspect of M. Ainihi's Resist is its phenomenal worldbuilding. Ainihi has created a sprawling yet believable fantasy universe full of magical realms, creatures, and super-powered characters that draw you in from the get-go and keeps you immersed throughout the pages. The first three-quarters of the book has our main heroes embarking on their own journey, with Amanda in the chaos realm and Emily and Kiami in the human realm. But once the three reunite in the last quarter, it's a fast-paced, action-packed ride until the end. Amanda, Kiami, and Emily each have very distinct personalities, which makes their relationship dynamic all the more compelling to read. Overall, I very much enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy stories on an epic scale.
