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.

This is the man she gave her heart to, only to have it handed right back. They should be soul-shatteringly in love. Their romance is very sweet, and like I said, no insta-love, but instead a slow and satisfying build-up. There are just two well-rounded and believable main characters. She has the inability to act first, and think later which later leads her into a defoance of trouble.
The settlement in which the story takes place for the larger portion of the narrative came into existence after some grand destructive event tore apart the existing defiabce of days long past. Deathly fierce, exceptionally brave, head-strong, independent and feisty, pretty much not your average girl.
A thoroughly melodramatic misfire that ends like a B-grade Godzilla movie. This is the love interest we’re supposed to swoon over.
What little there was, however, I liked well enough. At one point during a rather unpleasant arbitrary conversation where she asks simply “What is that supposed to mean? Write him with what I like to call kick the puppy syndrome. See chapter one basically, where every third sentence tells me in a variety of maudlin ways how depressed Rachel feels that her father hasn’t come back and is presumed dead.
Uneven pacing, character issues aside, I am pretty impressed with C. It debuted on the New York Times bestsellers list.
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”? Defiance is one of the books I’ve been highly anticipating to read this year. But you still have to remember that she is only 16 years old.
As it is, there’s a lot to enjoy about this easily read, fast-engrossing ch novel. For more of my reviews, visit my blog at Xpresso Reads She is a flawed character and they are the best kinds.
Their relationship had never been the same, but Logan will stop at nothing to protect her now that she is in his custody. Logan on the other hand, is one great male lead. Which is a shame because if not for my issues with these characters, this book could have easily blown my mind.

Preview — Defiance by C. I loved everything about this story! It lacked world-building, redwne lacked feeling, it lacked character depth and it now also lacks my stamp of approval. Why not just take that from him and then stab the guy in the face? A very very good thing.
Hardcoverpages. 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 this series, and can’t wait to see what’s install for both Rachel and Logan.
At nineteen, Logan McEntire is many things. But the thin allusion refiance a world of advanced technology that is completely obliterated within five decades and replaced with a system of self-styled warlords and walled cities is too redwie for me to buy into.
Her wit and spunk defiane juxtaposed with heartbreaking vulnerability and immaturity. I like books that defiancw subtle with their emotions, Defiance announces it with as much finesse as the lumbering Cursed One that wanders around and kills people like the prehistoric fire breathing dinosaur that it is.
Can you make it dystopian? They cannot leave their home without said escort and when they turn seventeen, a man will court them and they will become a wife.
Defiance (Defiance , book 1) by C J Redwine
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. Both Rachel and Logan are defiance personified. Rachel the main character is the epitome of this over blown writing style. Why can’t they just blow it up?
Her dad is out hunting a monster that redwinne the village. The one who looks at me and sees. The Wish Granterthe second book in the Ravenspire series, was published on February 14, He loves Rachel, and will only honor Jared until his he is found safe.
I think fans of fantasy may just see themselves lost in this dangerous world. Shellie and Ann-Marie February 15 17 Feb 07, She’s presented as a strong, headstrong girl in a misogynistic, patriarchal world that misuses and mistreats its women so it’s obviously very easy to root for her, but she’s also careless, self-absorbed, and stubborn beyond belief.
Redwine – Starting March 7th 9 10 Mar 13, Rachel Adams lives in a city called Balboden where the women are meant to be obedient and docile Yikes!
It was quite engaging, actually. Then, there’s the whole contrived and not well thought out dystopian setting created solely to elicit more emotions.
Then, after Logan was appointed as her Protector, basically made her move out of the comfort of her own house and into the discomfort of his, and just was an all around asshole towards her but more on that soon. I forgot to add, I love this cover and it’s so perfectly suited to the story which is nice for a change!
Overall I was left feeling annoyed and disappointed. But I am telling you so many, many things could have been done better.
