Redwine definitely delivers, and I can’t wait until the sequel.
This books is not something I would like my younger sibling reading. I’m nearly done with it but don’t want it to end!
These characters actually learn from their mistakes and do not keep deciance them. I don’t think I need to explain my feelings of this statement, and how wrong it is, do I? View all 4 comments.
Defiance Series by C.J. Redwine
The title, too, plays an important role in the story. Let’s just start redwihe Rachel, and get her over with. 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.
The world building wasn’t very in depth but you get enough to get a sense of the history of it all for the moment.
First and foremost, it should be known that their dual narration was very poorly written and if it were not for their names appearing before every chapter, I would not be able to tell them apart. They should be soul-shatteringly in love.
The setting of tyrant-controlled Baalboden and the destroyed world Rachel and Logan live in is both a strength and a weakness for Defiance. Jun 27, Ashley rated it liked cc Shelves: Every bit of drama is created out of Rachel and Logan constantly screwing up their plans and getting themselves in a load of trouble.
A strong-ish female protagonist, an interesting mix of fantasy and tech, dystopia and post-apocalyptic scenarios all make for dwfiance unique novel in the vein of The Hunger Games, etc. Jul 27, Jodi Meadows rated it it was amazing Shelves: With strong characters – that also know they need help from one another – and action-packed chapters with smooth writing, Defiance is a dystopian you don’t want to miss out on.
There’s chemistry within the characters, and the heat between the two is almost tangible. I just feel like there could have been more. Still it offered things that were really intriguing, entertaining and refreshing.
Deathly fierce, exceptionally brave, head-strong, independent and feisty, pretty much not your average girl. The plot, twist and character blend it effectively to make a really interesting, thrilling and gripping action-packed story. This book was fine. The Commander made me want to hurl several times.
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 redine on the line for those closest to him, I think he definitely made it to my favourite literary crushes.
She was a strong-willed, confident and impressive character. I get it – he’s the bad guy. Her body molds itself to mine like she was made for me, and I want her to feel it too.
As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can’t be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making. Make us want to scream at the unfairness!
This is reswine man she gave her heart to, only to have it handed right back. However I thought she was a bit frustrating, narrow-minded and childish during the earlier parts.
Maybe this book gets better and somehow becomes awesome but I was not willing to waste my time reading the rest of it on the off chance that it might improve. Logan is determined to protect her, but when his escape plan goes wrong and Rachel pays the price, he realizes he has more at stake than disappointing Jared. But no, rrdwine just crashed into carelessness and a jumble of thoughts and events.

Now I can move on to better books and not look back at this series. Can you make it dystopian? The Cursed One is intriguing and scary Her character is one that is definitely a force to be reckoned with and the only one that can reel her in, but not stop her, is of course, Logan. I, unfortunately, did not happen to find that. Defiace can’t help but admire Rachel’s stubbornness and tenacity that her father is alive.
His brain was his most effective weapon and he did prove it a lot of times in the story. I actually stopped reading this book, myself because I couldn’t take the violence. Seriously is that not an awesome cover? While they bend like reeds to the will of their male Protectors, she uses hers for sparring practice. And soon, I found myself warming into her and loving her redwind personality.
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. She was tough and confident, knowing how to take care of herself, unlike other women in this city. There were, however, hints of a love triangle in the last part and I fervently hope that C. It’s just been thrown in. There are instances of blood jetting out of throats and people getting trample and eaten by a monster.
Defiance (Defiance , book 1) by C J Redwine
Basically, nothing stood out for me good or bad. The whole book was a mess. But, you know, I see the Commander doing exactly what he has to do to u the rest of the town, and this fixation on how evil Chase is and needs to go just shows me Redwine is unwilling to tackle the potential complexities that could’ve been with the character and took the easy way out instead.
Any time she did do anything on her own, it was always a disaster that got her scolded afterwards. She was a true badass and a very real person.
