Eric Nylund is best know for Halo and so for many parents of young readers might be an author to hessitate over. Resisters was very well done and my 1..Show More »1 year old son connected with the caracters, enjoyed the idea of an alien take over where the parents are helpless but kids can come to the rescue. Book two continues to develope the resisters characters and got another two thumbs up fromt the son. There are just not enough good books in any genere that speak to young boys and stay PG and out of the overly graphic. I am very pleased Eric Nylund knows that a good story can stand without such and kept it young reader approperate.
