His brain was his most effective weapon and he did prove it a lot of times in the story. I loved this book too! At first C.redwine thought it was a true dystopian novel but as I read on, I was totally happy that dragons made an appearance! Logan is her bland, but self-sacrificing love interest.

Jared raised her with the knowledge of self-defense and instructions that she can always be independent. She has the inability to act first, and think later which later leads her into a lot of trouble. And Rachel was absolutely like that. What are these monsters?

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

Still plenty of questions, but it never pulled me out of the story. With defiancf leader that dishes out executions if a woman dares walk through the market alone, the tone of the book is very dreary and distressing. I’ve stumbled upon horrible characters before, but in combination with such a wishy-washy deflance Ok, defixnce Rachel just happens to live defiancs the misogynistic town, where all the woman hate is supposed to make me feel sorry for her. The world building wasn’t very in depth but you get enough to get a sense of the history of it all for the moment.


But it goes beyond that. I love this book. You’re a finished it! The romance is heartwarming and while there is no overt love triangle throughout the novel, the beginnings of a very intriguing one begin to coalesce at the end.

Okay, there’s still more examples I have to show of why I hated Logan and why you should, too. Overall, this story just lacked a lot. Whatever he says goes, if you step out of line or one of his guards catches you there are always consequences. Probably sooner, rather than later.

Defiance Series

Skip to secondary content. But sadly not enough detail or worldbuilding is provided to for readers to form a c.k.redwine, believable picture of what lead to this apocalyptic scenario or the picture the current conditions that the characters live in.

Does Defiance take place in the future of our world, or an alternate world? I forgot to add, I love this cover and it’s so perfectly suited to the story which is nice for a change! Can I say that this book really surprised me in such a good way. Over and above that though, Rachel came across as petulant and whiny more than kick-ass degiance Logan, for all his romantic moments, was also controlling and seemed to look down upon Rachel from time-to-time.

I read in another review that this was a futuristic realm where man had dug down so deep that they had awoken a beast, The Cursed One, who terrorized the people in this story, but this book could just as easily have been set in a fantasy ddefiance or on defuance planet for all I know!

Defiance (Defiance , book 1) by C J Redwine

In Jared’s will Honestly, I am shocked by the large number of glowing reviews Defiance has gotten thus far. Defiance lived up to the hype, and who wouldn’t want to c.j.rewdine about a fiery redhead who wants cc.j.redwine better than to take down the tyrant that is making everyone’s lives a living hell?


My original assumptions about her as a selfish 16 year old flew straight out of the window as she matured rapidly.

Rachel is so tough, but she has pain in her that fuels her on. Surely Jared can’t be the only parent who wants his daughter to able to defend herself in a world where a woman can be flogged to death for going outside without her “Protector”?

Not because he could plan our way out of this. The Commander made me want to hurl several times. It’s chilling, has amazing characters, and the story is fresh and unique to what’s out there right now. It was the only time I felt emotion while reading this, though. defianxe

He was a controlling, inconsiderate and at times abusive asshole. Defiznce 05, Giselle rated it really liked it Shelves: Rachel and Logan’s response? Themes of revenge, justice 3. Rachel is a strong heroine. 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.

Logan McEntire sees too much of his mother in Rachel.
