If this book was written years ago and I had read it then, maybe I would have liked it. Aug 28, Lili rated it really liked it. I am excited to continue on in this series sometime down the road.

Oh and as is more than insanely common to these dystopian novels, the status of women in this new civilization lies somewhere between roadkill and a precious jewel locked up in a vault.

C J Redwine Publisher: If that is how civilization ends I hope I die in the first wave because what a lame way to go! Damn the rant is starting. Such a cruel and disgusting excuse for a leader, the Commander lives on fear-mongering and thrives on abusing his power to get what he wants no matter what the cost to human life is. But I am telling you so many, many things could have been done better. No longer a girl with dreams. There’s a push and pull of unbelievable magnetic attraction and I couldn’t help but smile when reading those parts.

That quibble aside, Rachel does eventually grow up and change for the better throughout the novel, so it’s impossible to call her a one-dimensional character or even stagnant.

This is not a joke and I am telling you every book like this that I have read has been dubbed with this effect. Redwine is one I’ve been meaning to read for a while. And I’m more than happy to find out and tell you that this book really did not disappoint.

Worst case defkance you decide to not read this book and miss out on one of the best debuts this defianve. I read in another review that this was a futuristic realm where man had dug down so deep that they had awoken a beast, The Cursed One, who terrorized the people gedwine this story, but this book could just as easily have been set in a fantasy realm or on another planet for all I know!

This article is an orphanas no other articles link to it. Both were made to be the main characters equally. These characters won me over in a heartbeat. In a futuristic setting with walled-in cities to stave off a monstrous killing machine, Defiance is a mix of dystopian and fantasy that has a very interesting premise, although its characters did leave me feeling kind of uncomfortable, as well as annoyed.

Hmm I wonder what else it could’ve been. As apprentice to the city’s top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden.

Why does the commander have control over it? Needless to say, this change in character was not a very good one. Not that she doesn’t deserve some redwjne it. This was not a good thing. Oct 13, Zoey Talbon rated it really liked it. His most notable quality was that he fights with his brain too.

The story is told from two points of view, Rachel and Logan, and the story belongs to both of them equally. Whatever he says goes, if you step out of line or one of his guards c Defiance was a book that was on my priority to acquire list ever since I first came across it earlier this year.


He was one of the sweetest gentlemen, I loved how meticulous he was with everything he did; planning, checking and triple checking things, how he put his body on the line for those closest to him, I think he definitely made it to my favourite literary crushes.

Rachel refuses to accept it and decides to go find out what really happened to him. Defiance Courier’s Daughter Defianve 1 Author s: Redwine – Restarting February 3rd Defiance lived up to the hype, and who wouldn’t want to read about a fiery redhead who wants nothing better than to take down the tyrant that is making everyone’s lives a living hell? I’ve stumbled upon defiiance characters before, but in combination with such a wishy-washy setting? As the book progresses, I found she made a lot of impromptu decisions – trying to escape without a strong plan in place for example – which pestered me a little, leaving cracks in the image of an intelligent and wise character I had thought her to be.

She was a true badass and a very real person. Her character is one that is reddwine a force to be reckoned with and the only one that can reel her in, but not stop her, is of course, Logan.

I was also kept fascinated by the idea of a fire breathing beast roaming just outside the walls, giving the book a little fantastical feel. And, enjoyed it I did. The city-state of Baalboden is a terrible dystopia. But I will wax poetic about that later.
