The story flows well and there's lots of action and suspense to keep the reader guessing. The forbidden love affair between Shiovra and Odhran gives the romantics equal parts passion, romance and angst to keep them interested as well. The story will keep you on your toes with unusual and unique names of people, places and things while still capturing and holding your interest.
The story of Shiovra and Odhran itself is still a bit of mystery to me. At times it came across as forced, but they still conveyed a level of passion and endearment. So perhaps Sasina meant this to be more angst than uncomfortable.. or both. Either way Defiance is a must read for fans of fantasy, adventure, romance and intrigue with a strong female lead in Shiovra the priestess.
I enjoyed this read--it moved along at a good pace, and incorporated some fascinating historical information. The characters are well depicted and even when they're making awful choices (there was a moment when I went--no no NO! Don't do that!), you can still see how they got to it, you can understand it even if you want to shake them :) There's murder, deception, politics, magic and love in this story, and it's well worth the read.
I don't normally read adult fantasy, so I feel beholden to mention to folks who know me that there were a number of sex scenes that required skipping over for me. That's just me.
I am looking forward to discovering what Melissa Sasina has in store for the rest of this series.
The story starts off with an 8 year old being forced to make a life altering decision - leave her family and train to be a priestess to be betrothed to a great match for the clan OR to stay with her mother, brother, and cousin in the only home she has ever known. Join Shiovra as she follows the only path she feels will work. If you enjoy fantasy and historical stories this young adult book is right up your alley. As the description says: "Steeped in ancient Irish myth, this tale is spun of love, war, and DEFIANCE."
