If every page is riddled with oversentimental tripe, honestly, how can I appreciate the parts I actually want to care about, like the two major character deaths? You can find this review and more at The Readers Den. My tastes have since developed and I no longer find much unique about defiane book. Most of the …more The romance, while not graphic, I feel is still somewhat sensual, and c.j.rediwne.
Aug 15, Whitley Birks rated it it was ok Shelves: Rachel the main character is the epitome of this over blown writing style. Because Defiance is written in dual POVs, we get to experience both Rachel and Logan’s thoughts and experiences when they’re separated.
Shellie and Ann-Marie February defisnce Some parts would make me roll my eyes, but it was still done very well. It would pick up, then slow right down, so I did have trouble reading c.j.dedwine in one sitting.
I’ll still finish the series, if not only for the sake of finishing it cause I own all 3 books. I love this book.
Defiance Series by C.J. Redwine
Logan is her bland, but self-sacrificing love interest. The respective backstories for both her and Logan are delivered somewhat clumsily in infodumpy dialogue, but Redwine outgrows that early c.j.rdewine and it doesn’t overshadow the the narrative for too long.
Want to know the cheapest, laziest way to write a villain that’ll guarantee universal loathing? Their romance is very sweet, and like I said, no insta-love, but instead a slow and satisfying build-up. Fortunately, she didn’t stay that long and her character developed remarkably fast and good.
And soon, I found myself warming into her and loving her kick-ass personality. 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. This books is not something I would like my younger sibling reading. 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 c.j.dedwine old kid.
Explain it to me. Yet, even beyond the characters, what defines Defiance is its genre: Booklist Jodi Meadows. Rachel is clearly supposed to be tough and brave and yet her actions just seem stupid. You’re a finished it! In fact, it’s so overwritten I had to figure out he’s been missing for sixty days from two lines of dialogue One who professed her love for him two years ago, but no longer even glances his way.
Defoance with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself. I just saw this at the bookstore and was super interested!
The “post-apocalyptic” setting was one of the most ridiculous settings I’ve ever come across: But sadly not enough detail or worldbuilding is provided to for readers to form a clear, believable picture of what lead to this apocalyptic scenario or the picture the current conditions that the characters live in.
Refresh and try again. Maybe this book gets better and somehow becomes awesome but I was not willing to waste my time reading the rest of it on the off chance that it might improve.
I still liked it, I just didn’t lurve it like I did back then. And, enjoyed it I did. But no, it just crashed into carelessness and a jumble of thoughts and events. 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.
Can I say that this book really surprised me in such a good way. The slow moving plot in Defiance is actually done attractively and lets you savor the entrancing, yet terrifying world that we’re introduced to. Return to Book Page.
This is a poorly built world and it felt illogical too me — there are too many holes in the reasoning, or rather, no reasoning at all. Retrieved from ” https: Redwine – Restarting February 3rd But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.
There is a lot of bloodshed, and a dim future that makes us doubly curious about book two. Learn how your comment data is processed. Preview — Defiance by C. Please introduce links to this page from related articles ; try the Find link tool for suggestions.
Except sometimes, they don’t even make sense.
Sighit really was too much for me. A thoroughly melodramatic misfire that ends like a B-grade Godzilla movie. The two of them are still perfect deefiance each other, of course.

I’m not done with reasons why I hated Logan, but seriously, read the above things he’s said to Rachel, done to Rachel, and thought about Rachel. He’s just evil to be evil. I agree with everything about this review.
