I just personally got bored because it was like so many other stories I’ve read before. I tried several times to start defiancr review with something clever or profound, something that would let you know I mean Serious Business about this book. The whole story, characters, setting, and basically everything were super forgettable sefiance the point where I feel like I just had my mind wiped right after finishing the book. An unsolicited Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review.
These characters actually learn from their mistakes and do not keep repeating them. But whatever, that isn’t important. Or what the bits of a novel are or where that particular phrase comes from.
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.
The “post-apocalyptic” setting was one of the most ridiculous settings I’ve ever come across: Fans who aren’t too picky about their worldbuilding and detail with find much to enjoy here, especially those who enjoy bittersweet teenaged romance.
The me from 3 years ago remembered it as awesome and heart-stopping and jaw-dropping and whatnot, but I suppose I was a tad too easily impressed at the time. Whatever he says goes, if you step out of line or one of his guards catches you there are always consequences. Such a cruel and disgusting excuse for a leader, the Commander lives on fear-mongering and thrives on abusing his power to get what he wants no matter what the cost to human life is.
Then, after Logan was appointed as her Protector, basically made her move out of the comfort of her own house and into the discomfort of his, and just was an all around asshole towards her but more on that soon.
DEFIANCE by C.J. Redwine | Kirkus Reviews
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 gy lure drfiance readers and keep them invested.
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 city of Baalboden is under the regime of the Commander and his brute squad. I think if I had gotten to this before a lot of other similar books I might have liked it more, though. Bh all 9 comments. And why would women need to be constantly chaperoned by men?
The fourth book in the series, The Blood Spellis expected on February 12, Redwine has good ideas, but little follow through. However, Rachel and Logan don’t believe that Jared is actually dead, and escape the walls of Baalboden to look for him. Nov 26, Lindsay Cummings rated it it was amazing Dsfiance You’re a lovely storyteller!
However I thought she was a bit frustrating, narrow-minded and childish during the earlier parts. Overall, this story just lacked a lot.
Defiance (Defiance , book 1) by C J Redwine
I expected Redwlne to be straight up fantasy but it surprised me tricked me! The Commander was a right piece of work; he was a character which had a constant buzz around him, as he always had something up his sleeve which would have me stunned or so worked up that I rediwne wanted to punch him. Logan wasn’t what I was actually expecting. I do have to thank Edelweiss for providing me with a copy of this book for an honest review. Defiance 1 by C.
The pacing fell a little short for me. When a book is so overwritten that I’m supposed to feel emotions just because, I’m not impressed. They refuse to let anything stop them from achieving their goals. Here, the women must be given a Protector at age sixteen. And, enjoyed it I did. The two of them are still perfect for each other, of course.

Defiance was a book that was on my priority to acquire list ever since I first came across it earlier this year. It’s chilling, has amazing characters, and the story is fresh and unique to what’s out there right now. He simply cannot let Rachel meet the same redwihe.
Jul 27, Jodi Meadows rated it it was amazing Shelves: Nah, the only thing remotely enjoyable about this cheap tearjerker is watching these woe is me characters get one upped by the one note villain.
As it is, there’s a lot to enjoy about this easily read, fast-engrossing young-adult novel. I’m not done with reasons why I hated Logan, but seriously, read the above things he’s said to Rachel, done to Rachel, and thought about Rachel. Seriously is that not an awesome cover? Except sometimes, they don’t even make sense. There are two POVs, Rachel and Logan, a fact that these days immediately gives away the romance that is sure redwnie come.
