Defiance (Defiance, #1) by C.J. Redwine

Back before the formula it uses was used in every single dystopian novel. Rachel Adams lives in a city called Balboden where the women are meant to be obedient and docile Yikes!

Here is my take on Defiance. She’s presented as a strong, headstrong girl in a misogynistic, patriarchal world that misuses and mistreats its women so it’s obviously very easy to root for her, but she’s also careless, self-absorbed, and stubborn beyond belief.

She has the inability to act first, and think later which later leads her into a lot of trouble. Then there’s the love interest, Logan. Let me say rfdwine right now: In Jared’s will, he left Logan to be Rachel’s Protector, acting as a bodyguard for Rachel and never letting her out of his sight. No longer a girl with dreams. It wasn’t perfect but still it provides a great and wonderful reading experience for me.


This is not the kind of thing you want to stick out in a book. Over and above that though, Rachel came across as petulant and whiny more than kick-ass and Logan, for all his romantic moments, was also controlling and seemed to look down gedwine Rachel from time-to-time.


I just feel like there could have been more. In the city of Baalboden, Jared Adams is declared dead by the ruthless Commander, and Jared’s daughter, Rachel, friend, Oliver, and apprentice, Logan, are gathered to the hearing of his will.

I found this intriguing enough to continue on in the series, but I didn’t really feel like this first book in the series was all that edfiance. An unsolicited Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review.

The plot would look like it was gaining speed and getting interesting then plateau or just drop off completely. There were, however, hints of a love triangle in the last part and I fervently hope that C. As the story progressed she grew on me a lot more, I liked the character that emerged, she was still head strong, but there was a fierceness about her which I admired.

Apr 12, Wendy Darling rated it liked it Shelves: The only good character was her father but he is in so very little of the book that for that reason alone might be why I liked him the most.

You can read this review and more on my blog, Ivy Book Bindings. I was left feeling disappointed and yet again annoyed during the majority of this book. As a rule, I dislike novels where the chapters are narrated in alternating perspectives.


Defiance Series

The leader of this city is an evil creep who will get under your skin as only a great villain can. Redwine – Starting March 7th 9 10 Mar 13, Crazy for Young A But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.

Hmm I wonder what else it could’ve been. The whole story, characters, setting, and basically everything were super forgettable to the point where I feel like I just had my mind wiped right after finishing the book.

It’s easy to see that the world Rachel and Logan live in is dangerous. Which caused me to have a hard time liking her right away. But sadly not enough detail or worldbuilding is provided to for readers to form a clear, believable picture of what lead to this apocalyptic scenario or the picture the current conditions that the characters live in.

Because Defiance is written in dual POVs, we get Defiance doesn’t waste any time at throwing you right into the story. Back when I was less likely to see the huge gaping holes in it. View all comments. However, Rachel and Logan don’t believe that Jared is actually dead, and escape the walls of Baalboden to look for him.

While they bend like reeds to the will of their male Protectors, she uses hers for sparring practice.
