The part of the book that I read never said what exactly they were being protected from, but surly even if men are going to be really sexist they have better thing to do considering civilization is in ruins than escort women everywhere they need to go. Jun 27, Ashley rated it liked it Shelves: I was more than a little surprised and more than a little thrilled vefiance I was able to add Defiance to this very short list.
But sometimes they just didn’t have unique voices in their narratives. Not surprisingly, her rebellions mostly fail. There were so many things that thrilled me about DEFIANCE, from the characters to the worldbuilding to the gorgeous prose that defiacne me so deep into the story I never wanted to leave. Nah, the only thing remotely enjoyable about this cheap tearjerker is watching these woe is me characters get one upped by the one note villain. Logan McEntire sees too much of his mother in Rachel.
I am warning you now that this might not be pretty but it will be honest.
Mar 21, Nafiza rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. He’s just evil to be evil. As the book progresses, I found she made a lot of impromptu decisions – trying to escape without a strong plan in place for example – which pestered me a little, leaving cracks in the image of an intelligent and wise character I had thought her to be.
I do have to thank Edelweiss for providing me with a copy of this book for an honest review.
I’m glad I finally read this just to satisfy my curiosity. Does Defiance take place in the future of our world, or an alternate world? This book was lucky I was reading it on my Kindle, because if I had a paperback copy, that would have been the point where I would have, a thrown it out the nearest window and into the street, hopefully to get run over by a car or two; b shred to a million tiny little pieces and use it for litter in a gerbil cage; c ripped it to shreds by hand, and release those shreds into the wind in a My Sister’s Keeper fashion Damn you, Kindle!

Redwine – Starting March 7th As it is, there’s a lot to enjoy about this easily read, fast-engrossing young-adult novel. Direct statements are avoided by dancing around them with purplish musing, and the pacing of the story suffers for it. What are these monsters? Gag me with a rusty spoon.
DEFIANCE by C.J. Redwine | Kirkus Reviews
Defiance succeeds for me in its characterizations. This article is an orphanas no other articles link to defiwnce. Some people are brave, but most people are self-preserving first.
Both Rachel and Logan are defiance personified. There are certain forms of techy goodness that Logan invents so that’s my guess.
Defiance (Defiance , book 1) by C J Redwine
You’re lucky I’m not wringing your neck. And her writing I SO melodramatic! It felt a bit rushed to me, even though I know it wasn’t since Rachel and Logan have known each other since forever, basically. Her wit and spunk are juxtaposed with heartbreaking vulnerability and immaturity. Revenge and redemption take front in this story full of suspense and told by both Rachel and Logan, Defiance is one of those books that will ensure you keep turning the pages, because you really can’t stop and beg you to come back for more…I know that I can’t wait to continue on with defiannce series, and can’t wait to see what’s install for both Rachel and Logan.
The leader of this city is an evil creep who will get under your skin as only a great villain can. Everything living must have a vulnerability.
And maybe, somewhere, there’s a mediocre plot behind my blinding hatred for Logan and the melodramatic everything that takes over Defiance. It doesn’t help that her “voice” and that of Logan’s can read almost interchangeably for the majority of the novel. Please email webmaster fantasticfiction. As I said earlier, the cover and blurb held so much promise but fell short in so many ways for me.
There are some defiiance strange phrases, metaphors and analogies used for things that could have and should have been said quite simply: It lacked world-building, it lacked feeling, it lacked character depth and it now also lacks my stamp of approval. I judge a book on the entire story and effect, but also look at individual things – characters, writing, world-building and defixnce. Lots of books, particularly YA dystopias, use sexism to engage the readers – yeah, make us angry!
Hopefully now you understand the basis behind my extreme hatred towards Logan, because he truly is an awful character, and an even more awful love interest. Logan calculates things, makes plans. Customs and traditions seem to have reverted back to the past.
I also enjoyed how his lust consumed his logical reasoning and was rather amused at how Rachel affected him as a man. Way to go Marketing team!

I think I’m gonna skip the many plot holes, which are the least of this book’s problems, except to say in one scene, Rachel shoots an animal, jumps on top of it, slices its throat, flips it over The book had the potential to be amazing, but it got held up with poor characters and creepy kink and abysmal logic gaps.
In fact, the plot moves forward by failures. Why can’t they just blow it up?
