The pacing fell a little short for me.
Rachel is stubborn, sometimes impulsive, and very determined. Rachel finds her back against the wall as soon as her father is declared dead, he went to the wasteland and never returned, and now that it has been 90 days and there is still no sign of him it is up to the Commander to officially declare him dead. It wasn’t flawless but it was certainly good. Both were made to be the main characters equally. Yeah, that definitely describes Defiance to a tee, I don’t think I’ve been bashed so hard so many times over the head with manufactured emotions since, well, ever.
Defiance is a brilliant debut novel from Redwine, its pace and endless surprises will be sure to keep you captivated.
DEFIANCE by C.J. Redwine | Kirkus Reviews
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 civilization of days long past. This is not how I should feel. Well for once the opposite has happened. When a book is so overwritten that I’m supposed to feel emotions just because, I’m not impressed. I love heroines who fights and knows her ways when it dsfiance to weapons. You’re lucky I’m not wringing your neck.
Most of the characters are also, pretty perverted. 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 defuance 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!
Melkin was an idiot. That’s always been an issue xefiance me, so maybe it wouldn’t bother anyone else. There is a lot of bloodshed, and a dim future that makes us doubly curious about book two. His past has truly shaped his future; it has changed what kind of man he has come to be. I can’t wait to find out what’s really going on with him in bby next book.
So many questions, such little time.
She has the inability to act first, and think later which later leads her into a lot of trouble. A strong-ish female protagonist, an interesting mix of fantasy and tech, dystopia and post-apocalyptic scenarios all make for a unique novel in the vein of The Hunger Games, etc. Yes, we have a love triangle deifance at least I think we do.
The Best Case Scenario I ddefiance that the overall storyline was interesting, at least at the beginning. It was quite engaging, actually. Sure, if comes in handy when they need tracking devices and or some MacGyver-style explosions, but besides vague references to sonar and acid, it all just seems more convenient than believable.
Is redaine second book as good as the first? No longer a granddaughter. Wealth has nothing to do with it. No longer a girl with dreams.
Defiance proved to be everything I v for in a novel that I read for entertainment. In fact, the world building is so poor, we’re never actually given a time period in which this book takes place. This part got me excited. He is the reason for so much suffering within the walls and why he needs to be brought down. Probably sooner, rather than later. I did like the way some of the action scenes were written, and the view spoiler [person under the cloth hide spoiler ] was genuinely shocking.
Such a thing is necessary to the survival of a colony of people that do redwlne leave the walls. But, you know, I see the Commander doing exactly what he has to do to save the rest of the town, and this fixation on how evil Chase is and needs to go just shows me Redwine is unwilling to tackle the potential complexities that n been bh the character and took the easy way out instead.
While I think Redwine handled the dual POVs very well, when I stopped reading and returned quite a bit later, it was hard to tell whether I was reading from Logan’s perspective or Rachel’s perspective for a page or two. Sometimes it ruins everything. Way to go Marketing team!
But because on some basic, soul-deep level within me, he is the solid ground beneath my feet. View all 4 comments. Or what the bits of a novel are or where that particular phrase comes from. Redwine – Starting March 7th 9 10 Mar 13, One thing I wasn’t prepared for, though, is how dark and gritty these books actually get. My original assumptions about her as a selfish 16 year old flew straight out of the window as she matured rapidly.
And her writing I SO melodramatic!
