What a ride!!,
This review is from: Defiance (Defiance Trilogy) (Hardcover)
I've been in a reading funk for a while. I've read a few good books but haven't really had one that swept me into another world and made me forget about real life. Last Saturday I picked up Defiance with the intention of just reading a few chapters. Several hours later I finished the book. I had completely lost track of time while I was immersed in this world of action, adventure and romance. That's how good this book is!!
Defiance had everything I need in a book- a strong female lead, a fabulous love interest, a villain that makes my skin crawl and a plot that makes me forget about my life momentarily.
Here are a few things I loved about this book-
The dual POV: I'm not a huge fan of books told from multiple personalities so I was a little bugged when I realized Defiance was one of those books. But once I got to know Rachel and Logan I realized the story could not have been told by just one of them.
The "Cursed One"- I don't want to say much because I want you to discover this on your own. I'm intrigued by this character and am anxious to see where the battle with it goes. (Vague much? Sorry!)
Rachel- this girl is kick-ass! She is strong and brave and more than a tad stubborn. She's also scared and broken. Watching her go through the things she does in this book is brutal. I have a feeling that by the end of this trilogy she will rise above even my expectations of a strong, independent woman. I can't wait to see her journey!
Logan- he's nerdy, insecure and carries quite a few emotional scars. He's also deliciously swoon-worthy. *sigh* I love me some Logan.
The only problem with reading this book in one sitting is that it was over too quickly. Now I need the 2nd book... is it 2014 yet?!?
