  2. Honestly, I am shocked by the large number of glowing reviews Defiance has gotten thus far Once again, it looks like I m the black sheep, here to reign my terror on fangirls and fanboys all over , and give my honest opinion on what I thought of the overrated mess known as Defiance 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 In Jared s will, he left Lo [...]

  3. 1 1 2 stars If this book was written 5 6 years ago and I had read it then, maybe I would have liked it Maybe Back before the formula it uses was used in every single dystopian novel Back when I was less likely to see the huge gaping holes in it.I judge a book on the entire story and effect, but also look at individual things characters, writing, world building and plot And I must say that this book doesn t do anything that well Let s look at the characters There are two POVs, Rachel and Logan, a [...]

  4. A thoroughly melodramatic misfire that ends like a B grade Godzilla movie Yeah, that definitely describes Defiance to a tee, I don t think I ve been bashed so hard so many times over the head with manufactured emotions since, well, ever Whether it s the melodramatic overwriting, the cruel, harsh, cookie cutter dystopian landscape, the one note antagonist, or all the awful things that happen to Rachel in the first chapter of this seventy one chapter mess, wow what an annoying book I m sure those [...]

  5. Defiance doesn t waste any time at throwing you right into the story Once Commander Chase declares her father dead, Rachel Adams wastes no time in trying to come up with a plan to find him Of course, Logan McEntire Anyone think of Myra McEntire I do doesn t plan to let her leave the safety of Baalboden on her own Defiance is certainly filled with plenty of action, which is something I think a lot of dystopians are, oddly enough, missing Because Defiance is written in dual POVs, we get to experie [...]

  6. It s probably my job to tell you life isn t fair, but I figure you already know that.So instead, I ll tell you that hope is precious, and you re right not to give up Seventeen year old Rachel Adams can t believe it when all the searches are called off, and her father, Jared, is declared dead He is the best tracker courier for the city state of Baalboden Rachel s heart is crushed with grief and despair, but she knows deep down that if anyone can make it in the Wastelands that lie beyond the city [...]

  7. Yikes I took almost two weeks to finish this And to think, once upon a time I gave this book 5 stars and endless praise It s amazing how opinions can change within a few years, huh This book was fine 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 My tastes have since developed and I no longer find much unique about this book You know how I usually say that there are some slower paced, ch [...]

  8. 2.5 stars For some reason I expected this to be YA fantasy with castles magic maybe it was the cover It s of a typical dystopian, though, complete with an evil Commander and a Wall the teens need to cross 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 Basically, nothing stood out for me good or bad I think if I had gotten to this before a lot of other similar books I mi [...]

  9. Rating 2.5 Stars If I had to describeDefiance in one word, it would be forgettable Like so m any books before it,Defiancehas all the right ingredients to be an incredible novel, from its heart stopping cover to its kick ass heroine to its intriguing plot, but somehow, it just didn t work for me I went into this novel with low expectations, simply because so many trusted reviewers had given this a low rating, and I absolutely have to agree with them.Defiance, far from being a defiant cry about th [...]

  10. Well, it seems I can still enjoy dystopian after all Now, this statement and my delight may seem a bit odd to those of you who don t know me very well, but I was never a big fan of the sub genre in the first place, and there are only a handful of dystopian titles that I actually loved Tahereh Mafi s Shatter Me trilogy and Ann Aguirre s Razorland are the only two that quickly come to mind I was than a little surprised and than a little thrilled when I was able to add Defiance to this very short [...]

  11. I can just imagine the conversation that must have taken place with this book So, I ve got this manuscript about a girl who lives in this fantasy setting Fantasies aren t big right now Can you make it dystopian Um, I guess we could just say that the world got destroyed and this is what s leftover Great, let s go with that That fact that it makes no sense will be beside the point Tell me about the main character Her name is Rachel, and her dad is missing so she has to go find him using the skills [...]

  12. In a futuristic setting with walled in cities to stave off a monstrous killing machine, Defiance is a mix of dystopian and fantasy that has a very interesting premise, although its characters did leave me feeling kind of uncomfortable, as well as annoyed As it started out I began to really like our female lead, Rachel She was tough and confident, knowing how to take care of herself, unlike other women in this city As the book progresses, I found she made a lot of impromptu decisions trying to es [...]

  13. Check out Amanda the Book SlayerRating 1.5 StarsRecommendation I really don t think I can.The first thing that comes to mind when I think of this book is Cover Lust Seriously is that not an awesome cover I mean it oozes Bad ss and action packed right I know that is exactly what I thought too So for the Cover I am going to have to say it won all 5 Marks for getting noticed and wanting to read buy Way to go Marketing team I wish that I could say that what I found in the pages were up to my expecta [...]

  14. 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 amazing It took forever to read, and nothing truly exciting enough to draw me in happened.I liked the main characters, and some of the things that happened to them made me sad I liked how it drew them closer though I am excited to continue on in this series sometime down the road Probably sooner, rather than latere find me facebook ReadsAshIG ashads Twitter ReadsA [...]

  15. I tried several times to start this review with something clever or profound, something that would let you know I mean Serious Business about this book But every time I tried, I ended up with something like OMCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC In case that wasn t clear enough for you I love this book.There were so many things that thrilled me about DEFIANCE, from the characters to the worldbuilding to the gorgeous prose that pulled me so deep into the story I never wanted to leave DEFIANCE was one of those rar [...]

  16. 2.5 stars This was But felt like an urban fantasy set in a fantasy dystopian world, and I didn t really care that much about the characters.I did like the way some of the action scenes were written, and the view spoiler person under the cloth hide spoiler was genuinely shocking It was the only time I felt emotion while reading this, though.

  17. finished it this bookgh I love it love, love LOVE it Rachel is so tough, but she has pain in her that fuels her on Logan sexy That s all I m going to say about him, because what girl DOESN T want a sexy inventor boy who can fight It s chilling, has amazing characters, and the story is fresh and unique to what s out there right now I LOVED IT.I read through it pretty quick, despite the fact that I m knee deep in edits, and I can t wait to buy a finished copy Congrats, CJ You re a lovely storytell [...]

  18. 1.5 starsWell, T.I.A 1It s been a while since I ve found it such a struggle to finish a book I m not going to sugarcoat this, I wouldn t have reached the end of Defiance without resorting to pep talks, a bit of page skimming and outright bribery You can do it Finish this chapter and then you can eat all the chocolate in the house Is anyone able to clear something up for me Does Defiance take place in the future of our world, or an alternate world Because if it s ours, and Redwine is suggesting t [...]

  19. Surprisingly excellent Loved Rachel, Oliver,and Logan a close knit family even if not by blood The closeness of them had a smile on my face, especially the moments between Rachel and Oliver Her father Jared who has disappeared we don t get much screen time with but we get a good sense of him through the other s memories An honorable man.The commander a good villain but oooooh I volunteer to kick him on the balls Haha snake of a man with no conscience Living under the rule of that man shudders I [...]

  20. Read This Review More Like It On My Blog 3.5 out of 5There s a lot going on in those three hundred odd pages, the first of a new series by author C.J Redwine 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 Like my other 3.5 5 ratings, I want to stress that I really enjoyed this, particularly a [...]

  21. 3.5 4 starsThe Defiance series by C.J Redwine is one I ve been meaning to read for a while Dystopian books can be hit or miss, but I kept hearing good things about the story and characters One thing I wasn t prepared for, though, is how dark and gritty these books actually get 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 hardly stand to read it Themes of revenge, justice, grie [...]

  22. 5 5hace rato necesitaba un libro que tuviera todo chica valiente y luchadora chico sexy e indiferente romance y rechazo pelea, luchas, batallas y mucha sangreme agrado de principio a fin porque tiene todo lo que antes dije y me parecio interesante la historia Me gusto mucho la qu mica de Logan y Rachel, a Logan me lo imagine como Logan Lerman aunque no tiene nada que ver.Me gusto mucho como se describe el paisaje y el tiempo en que esta Es uno de mis libros preferidos y se los recomiendo.

  23. An unsolicited Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review Quotes have been pulled from an ARC and may be subject to change.Rachel Adams lives in a city called Balboden where the women are meant to be obedient and docile Yikes This screams at the feminist in me , and the men can freely take what they want Balboden and its citizens are all under the rule of the tyrant Commander Jason Rachel lives with her father Jared the city s best tracker and courier, and her father s apprent [...]

  24. I m no longer a daughter.No longer a granddaughter.No longer a girl with dreams With hope.I m a weapon, now I hate this book with the heat of a thousand suns The post apocalyptic setting was one of the most ridiculous settings I ve ever come across The city of Baalboden was a glorified fortified village We have not idea who are the Rowansmarks exactly and why they are building weapons to obliterate other communities starting with Baalboden No idea what the heck is The Cursed One Why can t they j [...]

  25. Defiance was a book that was on my priority to acquire list ever since I first came across it earlier this year The gorgeous cover and enticing premise instantly captured my attention I ve had certain issues with paranormal books where they just haven t appealed to me, but I had a feeling Defiance would be different and different it certainly was.The city of Baalboden is under the regime of the Commander and his brute squad Whatever he says goes, if you step out of line or one of his guards catc [...]

  26. Defiance is one of the books I ve been highly anticipating to read this year So you can just imagine how ecstatic I was when I got approved for an ARC of it, I almost started jumping up and down like a three year old kid And I m than happy to find out and tell you that this book really did not disappoint It wasn t flawless but it was certainly good The plot, twist and character blend it effectively to make a really interesting, thrilling and gripping action packed story.I love heroines who figh [...]

  28. I d like to start this review by saying that I loved this novel to bits Well, okay, not to bits because I have no idea what bits have to do with loving Or what the bits of a novel are or where that particular phrase comes from Let me start again.Defiance proved to be everything I look for in a novel that I read for entertainment This is not to say that it is perfect and flawless but when you like something despite its flaws, I reckon it s a good thing A very very good thing For me anyway.I expec [...]

  29. This book is set in a world where civilization has been destroyed by creatures that live beneath the earth s surface that were awoken by people drilling for a new source of renewable fuel Once these creature were awake they were apparently really offended by all the noise being made on the earth s surface they decided to exterminate everyone 50 years later the remaining people on earth live in walled cities surrounded by wastelands, and the biggest change in society is that women are no longer i [...]

  30. 5 FREAKING STARS.I LOVED IT.Haven t read anything so strong, powerful and equally emotional in a long time.The plot, the story, the characters, everything, was so powerful, it seeped into me, my brain, my mind and made me wept I haven t cried since finishing Daughter of Smoke and Bone a couple of months back I LOVE Logan and Rachel I can t wait to see what happens in Deception.All I want to do to this book is Maybe I am already doing this in bed But thats for me to know.GO READ THIS BOOKS FOLKS [...]

  31. Defiance was not what I was expecting with the synopsis, the tagline, the cover I expected a lot of action A super exciting adventure story I didn t get that There was some action, some interesting scenes, but overall it was a romance and self discovery type novel Overall, I did like it I thought that the romance was obvious and overdone sometimes, but overall it was well done and didn t feel anything like insta love, which I really appreciated The characters that fall in love have known each ot [...]
