Whether it’s the melodramatic overwriting, the cruel, harsh, cookie cutter dystopian landscape, the one note antagonist, or all the awful things that happen to Rachel in the first chapter of this seventy one chapter mess, wow what an annoying book.
The boy and bh are always putting eachother down. So many questions, such little time. In fact, the plot moves forward by failures.
I went into this novel with low expectations, simply because so many trusted reviewers had given this a low rating, and I absolutely have to agree with them. The characters, the pacing, the world, and of coursethe romance!
This was not a good thing. I still liked it, I just didn’t lurve it like I did back then. A thoroughly melodramatic misfire that ends like a B-grade Godzilla movie. I find them jarring and disruptive to the rhythm of the novel. The Scenario Complex I found this book repetitive as well. The middle I can forgive some skimming but I do enjoy being captivated at the end and this one just… did not hold any interest for me. View all 4 comments. We get a train wreak instead of Epic Awesomeness or even a decent battle would redaine done.
Hmm I wonder what else it could’ve been.
Defiance (Defiance , book 1) by C J Redwine
Want to Read saving…. Any time she did do anything on her own, it was always a disaster that got her scolded afterwards. There are two POVs, Rachel and Logan, a fact that these days immediately gives away the romance that is sure to come. We know this because Logan has lots of plans lying about and ink-stained fingers and does a lot of tinkering around with gears and wires. The “post-apocalyptic” redwind was one of the most ridiculous settings I’ve ever come across: Once her father doesn’t come back from one of his jobs, Rachel recruits Logan to help her find him, and together they unravel the secret of the Commander’s power over the Chosen One.
The two of them are still perfect for each other, of course. Back before the formula it uses was used in every single dystopian novel.
There is a lot of bloodshed, and a dim future that makes us doubly curious about book two. Set amongst the backdrop of a new world, forged out of the death and destruction of the old, Redwine created a civilisation reminiscent of medieval times but set in the future, hence why the women in the story were treated like second class citizens and men as their protectors.
Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city’s brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. Customs and traditions seem to have reverted back to the past. This is not defiiance joke and I am telling you every book like this that I have read has been dubbed with this effect. That all of this seems to have happened within the lifetime of the Commander who founded Baalboden beggars credulity. I’m sure tho A thoroughly melodramatic misfire that ends like a B-grade Godzilla movie.
Instead, I’m rolling my eyes at the cartoonish way Logan escapes from the dungeon by using a portable drill to dig a tunnel under a wall Wile E.
Rachel is so tough, but she has pain in her that redwinf her on.

Rachel lives with her father Jared the city’s best xefiance and courier, and her father’s apprentice Logan. Regarding the worldbuilding, I think most of you know how much I admire a good genre mash.
The second book in the Defiance DefiancwDeceptionwas published in August That showed an incredible amount of loyalty and integrity on his part. I know that is exactly what I thought too.
The romance is heartwarming and while there is no overt love triangle throughout the novel, detiance beginnings of a very intriguing one begin to coalesce at the end. I can tell Logan apart when he’s talking about logic, science, or plans, but when he’s narrating, talking about the plot, his voice, sounds the same as Rachel.
Final Verdict Best case scenario; you read this book and fall madly in love like I did. Yet she also has such a vulnerable innocence when it comes to her love for Logan.
