Once we get in the thick of it, it becomes a highly intense read that has just the right amount of action to keep you on your toes until the end. As apprentice to the city’s top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden.

As is also true of the cruel, mindlessly evil antagonist. But, so you can see some of the reasons while I wanted to desperately to strangle Logan, here are some of the things he’s said to Rachel, done to Rachel, and thought about Rachel, throughout Defiance or at least throughout the first half, because after that point I just didn’t care anymore and started skimming.

This was the first red flag this book gave me that I wouldn’t end up liking Logan. You, as the reader, get to watch Rachel shatter in a million pieces over and over and over again then try to pick them up and move on. She starts planning a way to skirt over the protective city Wall and n for her father.

The closeness of them had a smile on my face, especially the moments between Rachel and Oliver. Redwine loves fairy tales, Harry Potter, and going to the movies. Yeah, no dice, I have plenty of sympathies for real life women in situations like that, but for a fictional book, I expect the dystopian setting to have a point, like, I don’t know, social critique, besides just the, yeah, how horrible, sympathize with her!

What are these monsters? I love heroines Defiance is one of the books I’ve been highly anticipating to read this year. 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.

I just have to say how much I enjoy main characters who are intelligent and deadly at the same time. Clearly there’s something redeemable about Defiancegiven all the glowing reviews for it.

I did like the way some of the action scenes were written, rdewine the view spoiler [person under the cloth hide spoiler ] was genuinely shocking.

Their romance is very sweet, and like I said, no insta-love, but instead a slow and satisfying build-up. I think if I had gotten to this before a lot of o 2.

I still liked it, I just didn’t lurve it like I did back then. It’s just been thrown in. You can read this cefiance and more on my blog, Ivy Book Bindings. I told you this wasn’t going to be a happy review!

Not because he could plan our way out of this. A strong-ish female protagonist, an interesting mix of fantasy and tech, dystopia and post-apocalyptic scenarios all make for a unique novel in the vein of The Hunger Games, etc. I have high hopes for this character and her further characterization in the future books, as well as for fellow females Willow and Sylph to grow into more than just cardboard cutouts.

There’s chemistry within the characters, and the heat between the two is almost tangible. You’re a lovely storyteller! View all 3 comments. Gag me with a rusty spoon. I was left feeling disappointed and yet again annoyed during the majority of this book.


Some parts would make me roll my eyes, but it was still done very well. Internal logic takes a backseat to overwrought, present-tense narration, which alternates between Logan’s and Rachel’s nearly identical voices. View all 8 comments.

Rachel the main character is the epitome of this over blown writing style. The setting gave off the overall feel of a historical period but the constant reminders of the developed civilization before the Cursed Ones arrived kept me thinking that this was indeed a dytopia novel.

Because of Rachel’s idiotic actions, Logan gets caught up in it too. When Rachel’s father fails to return from Defiance by C. Can you make it dystopian? If not, bravery quickly becomes foolishness.

The respective backstories for both her and Logan are delivered somewhat clumsily in infodumpy dialogue, but Redwine outgrows that early on and it doesn’t overshadow the the narrative for too long. Okay, there’s still more examples I have to show of why I hated Logan and why you should, too.
