    I think this book, the first in the series, really actually deserves 3 1/2 stars, but since it compelled me to read all five books in the series in a 3 day period, I believe the extra 1/2 star is an "obsessiveness bonus". I picked this book up on a whim from an List (honestly, I find the best books that way! Thank you contributors!) It looked to be something I wouldn't necessarily love (a bit twee from the description) but I quickly fell in love with the characters and the world. Just great!Th [...]

  • Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) says:

    This lovely book was on my to be read pile for a long time. I'm glad I finally got around to reading it. The idea is very unique and quite intriguing. However, it took me a little while to get into the book. Once I made it about forty pages in, I was settled into a groove and enjoying the ride.Dunleavy is not happy about her bonded work partner. He's probably the second to last one she would have picked, and her last choice has a reputation for being a psychopath. Lord Shintaro Karish is just to [...]

  • Angie says:

    I first read about this series onAnn Aguirre's blog. She recommended it so highly and, given how much I enjoyedGrimspace, I immediately picked up a copy of the first book. By the time I cracked it open, I'd been sufficiently warned not to be deterred by the ridiculous cover and anemic title. It's difficult to get past the outside, they said, but persevere you must. The cover is truly cringe-worthy. But the contents are not. The story has its laughable parts. But they're meant to be funny. So tha [...]

  • Tink Magoo is bad at reviews says:

    Let me start by saying that I actually like this cover, I know some reviewers despise it, but I don't. I will admit that it lead me to believe this story would be a bit of a romantic farce and actually, there isn't any romance and minimal comedy, but that can be put down to me judging it by its cover (again) rather than the synopsis being misleading. I'd also expected to really dislike Dunleavy because a lot of reviews mention that she's extremely judgemental. While she is judgemental, it wasn't [...]

  • Anne Osterlund says:

    Lee is absolutely ordinary. Well, except for the fact that she is a Shield (someone born with the unique ability to keep a Sword from dying when he or she channels the forces that cause natural disasters on Lee’s world). And the fact that Lee is particularly sensitive to music (not in a good way). And that she left her family before the age of ten to be prepared for the day, which happens to be today, that she will be bonded with a Sword.A bond to someone she has never met. And a bond that wil [...]

  • MrsJoseph says:

    bookslifewine/r-resenting-Tamika, I really enjoyed this one! It's not a Romance but rather it's a Fantasy book with a romantic (ironic) cover. I had a lot of fun reading this oneough I'm not quite sure it's your taste. How much straight Fantasy do you read now?

  • Katyana says:

    Okay. So it turns out, I actually liked this quite a bit. I was worried at first, because I thought Lee was pretty judgmental and unfair (particularly about Taro). But she won me over.Let's talk about how. I think the author used POV to wonderful effect here. Lee definitely doesn't always say the right things. But she's thinking them - we see that, with her internal dialogue. She's also witty, funny, and at times gut-bustingly hilarious. Definitely sarcastic. But the reason she didn't read as bi [...]

  • Alexa says:

    RTC!

  • Lyndi says:

    What the hell did I just read? This is one of those "so bad it's good" books.I wanted to DNF it a lot because Lee is like, super inept. This is a pretty good example of her:I studied some maps of Middle Reach and the surrounding areas, just because I thought I should. I didn’t know what I was looking for, but studying maps seemed like the thing to do before heading off on a journey.She has great intentions, but she is totally clueless in the execution of anything other than her actual Shield m [...]

  • Gail Carriger says:

    This is the first in the Source & Shield series of books (the Hero Strikes Back, Heroes Adrift, Heroes at Risk, Heroes Return, Heroes Reward). I read them all, one after another so I'm afraid they all blur together in my head but I certainly enjoyed them. The main character is a tough practical Shield with some odd ideas about how the world works and her own feeling on the matter. Much to her disgust, she is bonded to an outrageous overly-emotional Source. Together they form one of the few m [...]

  • CJ - It's only a Paper Moon says:

    I waited forever to read this book finally found it in the library and grabbed it immediately.It was completely worth it. Two unlikely people learning to live, work and like each other (think Pride and Prejudice if only Darcy and Lizzie were permanently stuck together on the day of the ball and couldn't separate because it would result in either death or uselessness. I don't think they would get along so well either). Underlying that, Source Taro - reputation: playboy, hero and adventurer- is ta [...]

  • Erin O'Roark says:

    I forgot I even read this.

  • Martha says:

    (Ignore the cringe-worthy title and cover - this book is amazing!) This book does such a great job of creating a fantasy world. In this world, there are Sources and Shields. A Source, typically popular with a crowd and the receiver of much glory, can stop natural disasters, such as tidal waves. However, to do so is a great trial upon their minds and bodies and could ultimately cause their deaths. This is where the Shields come in. When a Source opens their mind to stop these natural disasters, a [...]

  • Gokce ~Muslin Myst~ says:

    I can't remember how I first saw this book and added it to my to-read pile but I'm glad I did. There were parts of the story that were a bit complex to imagine but once I let go and went with the flow, it was all good and I enjoyed it very much.The world is under threat of many random natural disasters and certain people are able to prevent these. They work in pairs, Souces and Shields; while a Source has the ability to detect and avert the disasters by channeling their powers through themselves [...]

  • Sarai says:

    Okay I am half way through this book and couldn't put my finger on what i disliked about it until I came across this review which hits it on the head:"I don't understand Dunleavy's continued resentment and dislike of Karish. Throughout most of the book, although there is a lot of evidence that Karish is a good, responsible Source despite his partying ways, she continually sees him as irresponsible and overbearing. Dunleavy herself came across as a stuffy stick-in-the-mud. Maybe the author meant [...]

  • Kiri says:

    Haven't finished it yet, but just had to comment on a few things. The writing style is starting to bother me; there's a lot of summation of events that could have been told in a more narrative style. The dialogue has been snappy and humorous all along, but a lot of it seems unnecessary, especially when important plot points are glossed over.I found the entire bench dancing sequence really hard to picture - the description left me imagining the dancers hopping from one foot to the other back and [...]

  • Keertana says:

    While I fell head-over-heels for the world-building in this novel, not to mention the subtle weaving of politics between Source and Shield, I was less impressed by Lee's naivety; her refusal to alter her opinions of others, despite overwhelming evidence. Resenting the Hero is full of entertaining banter between Lee and Taro, but the fact that it takes them the entire course of this novel to simply like one another, looking past reputations and pre-conceived notions, grated on me. I found the con [...]

  • Miss Jools says:

    This book didn't fulfil either attempts at being a fantasy or a romance. I don't mind if it focuses on one or the other, but to miss the mark on both makes a boring book.The world building was really poor; the magic badly/not explained. The two main characters could have been interesting but their interactions with one another were too limited - the clash between their personalities was never really addressed so the tension/romance element was badly handled. And the plotyawn.Disappointing.

  • Loise says:

    i've always been a sucker of hate-to-love tropes and boy, did our heroine truly resented our hero. sometimes, i think a bit too much. but i loved dunleavy, she's so rough around the edges - judgmental and has too many selfish thoughts - but still has a good heart underneath all that. she's strong-minded, independent and she's really funny! i loved how this book subtly (or not so subtly) takes a jab at "heroes" or guys who are supposed to be knights in shining armors. i thought it was fucking bri [...]

  • Zimt says:

    I believe this series is an insiders' tip and should be on everyone's to-read list who likes exciting fantasy.It is well thought-out. The speech is beautiful done. And it never gets boring."Resenting the Hero" by Moira J. Moore is the first book in a seven book long historical romance fantasy series. We get introduced into the world and its history and, of course, to the two main protagonists, Karish/Taro and Lee. (The POV is for all seven volumes entirely from Lee's point of view and in the fir [...]

  • Sally Linford says:

    UPDATE: David informs me that my review is lean on real info about the book, for example . . . "Why would I want to read it?" So, here's a bone for those of you who like more of a teaser. (Don't worry, no spoilers.)In this world of extremes, the population is constantly threatened by violent atmospheric events (earthquakes, floods, tsunamis). A few gifted people "Sources" are able to channel their mental resources to dispel these events, but left undefended, they die in the process without prote [...]

  • Jacob Proffitt says:

    This book is done an active disservice by its cover. Even the cover copy is, at best, misleading. Dunleavy (sometimes Lee for short), the heroine, is a Shield and trained to service in a partnership that is inherently unequal. This much is true. But she is never subservient and the tone of the novel isn't nearly as light or farcical as the cover would have you believe.Further, while Lee is unquestionably naieve and this book is largely about her growth and maturity and overcoming her (understand [...]

  • Denise says:

    All Dunleavy Mallorough ever wanted was a quiet, not overly exciting life. As a Shield, she will become one half of a bonded pair of people with special gifts that allow them to protect their world and its inhabitants from the frequent natural disasters that plague it. Her Matching ceremony offers several promising candidates for just the life Lee has in mind - steady, uneventful and pleasantly free of attention and heroics. Of course, fate has a different idea, and she ends up bonding with none [...]

  • Kathleen says:

    *3.5 starsI really enjoyed this book. Most of all, I was enchanted with one of the main characters - the shield. She was far from perfect and could be dense and such a fool but there's hope for her. She was stubborn in her ways as a result of being isolated and taught how to act and feel. You know what? She was somehow what I have envisioned Kelsey from Queen of the Tearling to be if Kelsey stopped acting like a child. I also appreciate how her friendship with her source Taro was built up. Just [...]

  • momokaachan says:

    Wow. this read is a real gem. I am not a great fan of reads falling in the "young adult" bracket, but the growth of the MC throughout this book is worth the read. Oh, and did I mention the "Hero" mentioned in the title? The relationship between these 2 characters is a joy to watch develop.Not 5-star just because of some niggling repetitiveness that bugged me. Oh, and PLEASE ignore the cover. Overall, a very satisfactory read. Looking forward to more, 'cause it's a series! =)

  • Lexie says:

    I originally read this book 10 years ago, on a whim because I could not for the of me remember an author name. I had been wanting to read John Moore, who writes amusing fantasies as well. when sending my dad out to get me those books he returned with this one. it's a fantasy, author's last name is Moore and it's amusing so far as he could see.Best mistake ever.

  • Summer says:

    I'd read this book ages ago and couldn't really remember much about it. After reading it a second time I found it to be entertaining. If a bit slow and towards the end it felt a little muddled. I skimmed a bit in places but I like the characters and world enough that I'll be giving the sequel a try.

  • Paranormal Romance says:

    The heroine has trained all her life be a Shield and she's certainly adopted the cold, calculating personality that benefits the position. While she is confident in herself and her abilities, she doesn't want to prove herself. Instead of adventure, she wants a calm and respectable life with a Source partner who she can tolerate for the rest of her days. Insteade gets the hero. Stories of him circulate the city. Stories of whoring, drunkenness and standings of grandeur. Just because he is stunnin [...]

  • Kuroi says:

    Normally, I know how I feel about a book. It's usually one of strong dislike, enthusiastic love or a resigned feeling that it could have gone somewhat better. Resenting the Hero gets the dubious honor of being the first book to induce complete apathy in me.I think, in part, it was thanks to the emotional indifference of the protagonist, who simply doesn't empathize with anyone or anything. Dunleavy (that names make me think of bread, dunno why) is a character that is so stoic and detached from a [...]

  • Jennifer says:

    I was looking for something fluffy and easy to read that wasn't terrible, and I was intrigued by Resenting the Hero since it was on both a Kirkus review list, "Top 10 Fantasy Novels by Female Authors," and the list for "Wonderful books with Awful Covers." (In my opinion, the title is awful as well) Clearly, the cover for this book is awful, combining the worst of cheesy fantasy covers with the suggestion of romance, but at least the guy on the cover isn't shirtless with an oily chest. Also, if [...]
