ABOUT

Defiance by C. J. Redwine is rich postapocalyptic YA fantasy perfect for fans of Graceling and Tamora Pierce.

While the other girls in the walled city-state of Baalboden learn to sew and dance, Rachel Adams learns to track and hunt. While they bend like reeds to the will of their male Protectors, she uses hers for sparring practice.

When Rachel's father fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the city's brutal Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector: her father's apprentice, Logan—the boy she declared her love to and who turned her down two years before. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father's survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself.

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.

Book Description

Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls in Baalboden sew dresses and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and wield a sword. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the city's brutal Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father's apprentice, Logan—the boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago. . .and the one who handed her heart right back to her. Left with only a fierce belief in her father's survival, Rachel decides to find him herself. But what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.

Logan McEntire is many things. Orphan. Outcast. Inventor. Apprentice to the city's top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor's impulsive daughter. 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.

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.

There was almost too much to love about this novel. I don't normally drool all over Dystopian fiction. I like it, but I don't necessarily like it enough to throw the book against the wall yelling "Noooo!" when it's over...because that's exactly what I did when I finished Defiance. I didn't want it to end!

I loved both Rachel and Logan, I loved their strong characters and will-power, I loved the love story. In fact, I loved it so much I made my book club read it too. :)

This book made me gasp out loud (true story). This book made me tear up. And it made me grin like an idiot. I'm sure I freaked a lot of people out.

Either way, read this. You wont regret it.

EVERYBODY LISTEN TO ME:
READ THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!!! It's so damn good and so spellbinding...
I can't put it down even when I finished.
I'm not being dramatic, it's true.
I loved the action, I loved the romance, I loved the characters... and summarizing everything on the C.J. Redwine world enchanted me.
Again...
READ THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!!!
