Welcome to the beginning of book two!
“Has my son arrived yet?” Rory asked one of the healers.
Healers were rushing around toward every direction trying to clean up the blood that was all around Rory.
“No sir, he has been informed and is on his way.”
“Leave me, so I can prepare,” Rory demanded with a cough.
“Sir, Lorcan is requesting entrance...” spoke another healer near the door.
“Do not let him in, I must speak with Sorley.”
The door burst open, Sorley came slowly through the doorway sending papers and funeral flowers swirling around the room.
“What happened? How did he get hurt?” Sorley growled at the healers.
Rory smiled, his favorite son had finally arrived.
“Sorley, please calm yourself. Sit with me for a moment.”
Sorley did as he was asked, grabbing a chair covered with funeral flowers.
“Dad is it really that serious? There are funeral flowers all around the village,” Sorley asked desperately.
With a sigh and a smile, Rory answered with his last breath, “Sorley you are my son and heir to lead this village, and all the elven people; I give you my blessing.”
Sorley held his father's hand sobbing quietly as the healers rushed to place more funeral flowers on Rory's still body. Sorley glanced up seeing Lorcan in the doorway. His expression was grim.
“You're supposed to protect him while I was gone, where were you?” Growled Sorley as he stood moving toward Lorcan, slamming the door in his brother's face.

This is the first series I've ever read that focused on leprechauns, and I loved it! Baylee is pretty awesome, but Damon is my favorite character of the entire book. Once I started reading, I flew through the pages, and finished it in no time.
I read the first book in the series, The Resistance: Leprechaun in April. I loved it, and gave it 4 stars, so I was looking forward to reading the sequel, The Resistance: Duchess. However, sometimes the second books in a series can be a huge let down, so I was also a bit worried.
I didn’t need to be. I enjoyed this book even more than the first.
Leprechauns are awesome. Seriously, there are just not enough books about leprechauns. They have such a rich history in folklore and myth yet they’re hardly featured in nowadays YA lit, so I’m glad author Kristyn Stone is here to change that. In this book, Baylee, twin sister of Garritt, the protagonist from book one, takes center stage.
Baylee has to make some tough choices in this book which further explores the world of leprechauns, elves and humans. In typical YA fashion, there’s also some romance, a lot of difficult choices to make, and an intriguing cast of the characters. I can’t wait for the author’s next book.
