REVIEW COPY: personal tradeback
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.
So I read this ages ago but haven't been reviewing lately what with life, my dog dying and morning sickness. But I want to at least get a few more posts in this year. If you head to Goodreads you'll see I have been reading, but my reviewing is pretty sucky these days. So anyhoo...on to the reviewing(mini-reviewing.)
I liked Defiance. I love romances that jump between the male and female leads (As opposed to sticking with just one character) and Defiance does this well. Plus I liked the story. There are some gaps in the world building but since it's only the first book I think there is still lots more to learn. I found the story fast-paced and exciting. I was always really curious to find out what would happen next.
All in all it's a good fantasy (I think it falls more into fantasy as opposed to dystopian or romance but it straddles a lot of lines.) I was really into the stories and the characters and I'm definitely looking forward to the sequel.
