I’m glad I finally read this just to satisfy my curiosity. Even though I wasn’t taken by the characters, I still found Defiance’s premise entertaining. Rachel Adams lives in a city called Balboden where the women are meant to be obedient and docile Yikes!

Deathly fierce, exceptionally brave, head-strong, independent and feisty, pretty much not your average girl. Explain it to me. Redwine definitely delivers, and I can’t defiancr until the sequel. Well, it seems I can still enjoy dystopian after all! Probably sooner, rather than later. Whatever he says goes, if you step out of reswine 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.

Still plenty of questions, but it never pulled me out of the story. Jun 27, Ashley rated it liked it Shelves: Does Defiance take place in the future of our world, or an alternate world? Rachel is redwin tough, but she has pain in her that fuels her on. This is a first in a series so I am sure more detail and concrete answers are on the way, but the omission and neglect of information often got in the way of my truly being involved in the story.

Her dad is out hunting a monster that terrorizes the village. I had no expectations going in except knowing that those who have read it really enjoyed it. Redwine loves fairy tales, Harry Potter, and going to the movies.


The author is not afraid to make her characters experience pain, suffering, and heartbreak; she pushes Rachel and Logan past their limits and there were times I could hy stand to read it.

And, enjoyed it I did. Logan and Rachel were two characters that brought so much, that it was hard not to form a close relationship with both. More damning is the fact that deiance POVs seem identical – if their names were not at the start of the chapters, it would be hard to distinguish them from one another. There’s no point to the misogyny here, sorry. It’s f how opinions can change within a few years, huh?

Defiance is certainly filled with plenty of action, which is something I think a lot of dystopians are, oddly enough, missing. One of the few people that is able to leave the walls is couri 4. Basically, nothing stood out for me good or bad. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor’s impulsive daughter.

Right in chapter one, we’re provided with very clear indications that Rachel has a strong hatred towards Logan, ever since she confessed her love hmph to him two years ago, and he rejected her.

You’re a lovely storyteller! Clearly there’s something redeemable about Defiancegiven all the glowing reviews for it. If this book was written years ago and I had read it then, maybe I would have liked it. That’s right, Chase is evil just because, so of course he’s going to be cruel and ruthless enough that he’s willing to do anything to get what he wants, heck he’ll even kill minions and kidnap pregnant women just to make a point.

I was expecting the bad boy type but he was actually more of the nice guy. That all of this seems to have happened within the lifetime of the Commander who founded Baalboden beggars credulity. Please provide an email address.


Redwine – Starting March 7th 9 10 Mar 13, 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.

Redwune, this didn’t stop our antagonist, our heroine, Rachel. This page was last edited on 6 Decemberat It felt a bit rushed to me, even though I know it wasn’t since Rachel and Logan have known each other since forever, basically. 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.


I am warning you now that this might not be pretty but it will be honest. I love this book. I think if I had gotten to this before a lot of other similar books I might have liked it more, though.

And I must say that this book doesn’t do anything that well. Lists with This Book. I don’t have a problem with Rachel or Logan, the characters, but honestly the tough orphan girl with emotional problems and the possessive guy who won’t admit his feelings are a dime a dozen in young adult books, particularly dystopians.

The slow moving plot in Defiance is actually done attractively and lets you savor the entrancing, yet terrifying world that we’re introduced to.
