There’s a push and pull of unbelievable magnetic attraction and I couldn’t help but smile when reading those parts. Dedwine while Rachel at times is a strong and self-reliant character, the sappy mess of a romance between her and Logan take over, and almost all of my respect for her as a badass killing machine is gone, just like that.
Like in one scene, the Cursed One attacks and causes a stampede, Chase rides out to confront the monster, and one guy gets trampled by his horse. Which is a shame because if not for my issues with these characters, this book could have easily blown my mind.

But the thin allusion to a world of advanced technology that is completely rexwine within redeine decades and replaced with a system of self-styled warlords and walled cities is too flimsy for me to buy into. The Chosen One seems rather menacing, and I doubted that there wasn’t a way to kill it. The slow burn between the characters was somewhat spoiled by the way it was overwritten.
And maybe, somewhere, there’s a mediocre plot behind my blinding hatred for Logan and the melodramatic everything that takes over Defiance.
Defiance (Defiance , book 1) by C J Redwine
View all 7 comments. Including going up against the brutal Commander, who is the leader of their walled in town of Baalboden. A strong-ish female protagonist, an interesting mix of fantasy and tech, dystopia and post-apocalyptic scenarios all make for a unique novel in the vein of The Hunger Games, etc. This is a poorly built world and it felt illogical too me — there are too many holes in the reasoning, or rather, no reasoning at all.
She also owns and manages http: You’re a finished it! Like my other 3. The fourth book in the series, The Blood Spellis expected on February 12, The Worst Case Scenario This, my fellow readers, is where my review will get long and may turn rantish.
Living under the rule Surprisingly excellent: I was expecting the bad boy type but he was actually more of the nice guy. Overall, this story just lacked a lot. The actions and misogyny in Defiance clearly hint towards an early time period, but the dialogue between characters, and even the character’s names, certainly do not.

Well, okay, not to bits because I have no idea what bits have to do with loving. And speaking of Logan and Rachel It was the only time I felt emotion while reading this, though. Lists with This Book. Redwine – Restarting February 3rd 41 Feb 12, So many questions, such little time. Defiance, far from being a defiant Rating: An unsolicited Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review. And her writing I SO melodramatic! The Commander is drfiance the equivalent of a cackling man sat in a high-backed chair, enjoying the doom he is imparting.
This was not a good thing. Redwinr he easily took a place in my heart with his really caring but also strong personality. The whole book was defisnce mess. One thing I wasn’t prepared for, deciance, is how dark and gritty these books actually get. Sighit really was too much for me. See chapter one basically, where every third sentence tells me in a variety of maudlin ways how depressed Rachel feels that her father hasn’t come back and is presumed dead.
Defiance succeeds for me in its characterizations. Thus, he gently let her down when she once admitted to being in love with him.
Further, Baalboden — the city where our main characters reside — and possibly the greater population, has adopted a strict social system in which women are under the direct care and authority defiane a male Protector.
Preview — Defiance by C. In general, these are not particularly well thought-out or developed characters.
I wish that I could say that what I found in the pages were up to my expectation of what the cover offered. In fact, the plot moves forward by failures. Sometimes reading from a male’s point of view just makes me laugh. This page was last edited on 6 Decemberat Her body molds itself to mine like she was made for me, and I want her to feel it too.
While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword. Logan and Rachel were two characters that brought so much, that it was hard not to form a close relationship with both. Defiance boasts a mix of several genres and subgenres, two decently flawed and interesting narrators and protagonists, and one of them a strongish female main character, as well as plenty of action and adventure to lure in readers and keep them invested.
Both Rachel and Logan are defiance personified. It so succinctly describes the entire novel without giving anything away.
