Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city’s brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan—the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself. But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.
At nineteen, Logan McEntire is many things. Orphan. Outcast. Inventor. As 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.
I read this book in March. I was the lucky winner of the first ever ARC and I couldn’t wait to read it. The story sounds so amazing and I couldn’t wait to hear what happens.
So now I’m writing a review of Defiance. Oh My Goodness!!!!
I devoured this book. *Jumps up and down in happiness* It’s soooo good! A total win!
|Thank you for sharing my enthusiasm! 🙂|
(Sorry, I just had to take a moment and freak out a little bit. )
Logan is *swoons* *faints* *passes out from awesome*
LOGAN!!!! (by the way, I adore that name).
I’m sorry I just can’t help myself. His voice is so raw and beautiful! I loved his character, his mind, his everything.
Sometimes I feel there are too many “love at first sight” “omw he’s so cute, I just met him but he’s my soulmate” kind of relationships. Not that I don’t appreciate those once in a while, but Rachel and Logan are not prince and princess, they’re real, powerful, blow your mind characters that have the chemistry that will pull you in and won’t let you go.

So glad you enjoyed Defiance. I'm very looking forward to reading it. Great review!
Yay! I read a review yesterday and she didn't like the book which dampened my enthusiasm a little bit because this is on my TBR this month. At least now I have a balance of opinions. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Valia!
