And I have to mention that I love love love the fighting scenes. They are so well written! I will admit I'm a bit paranoid with dashing, knife-welding assassins, but seriously, some of these guys (and gals) are So. Cool. Also, good people do die and get hurt while fighting, which makes the story seem very real. I'll warn you...once you start, you may not want to put this book down. And when you finish, you'll want to buy the next one. I'd know...
Even better than Dare, if you can believe that. Tricia Mingerink is so creative.
There weren’t many new characters in this book…just returns of the old ones. No complaints here. I loved all the characters.
Again, absolutely fantastic.
Amazing, just as book 1.
Ahem. Well, I read this book even faster than Dare. And I think I read Dare in two days. Need I say anything more?
I also really admired the characters for how well, and sometimes creatively, they handled the situations they were thrust into, even if the results would cost them dearly. I am so eager for the next book. Deny was a bit of a cliffhanger so i'm counting the days until I can get my hands on Defy!
Renna faces her biggest struggles yet. It's not that she's in more danger (well, she is), but that her inner turmoil is taken to a max.
Writer thoughts: Recently had several story discussions with a sibling about how many characters "repeat" character development in sequels. This did not happen in this book. Renna and Brandy and Leith all grew in book 1, but they still had room to grow in book 2, and they have room to grow more (in deeper and different ways) in book 3. It's clear Mingerink is growing them gradually on purpose. It feels sloppy when an author makes a character backtrack in order to have the character go through the same character development in book 2 that the character underwent in book 1 (or side characters).
Major cliff hanger there at the end. Tricia, how could you do this to me?
While reading this book I kept thinking "what would I do in Lieth's/Renna's situation?" Let me tell you, I would make a terrible spy.
I could relate to Renna in her thought processing, the doubt and then the dawning of faith. I've always been apprehensive about persecution, and books like these, the Ilyon Chronicles, and the Tales of Goldstone Wood really do help me give these anxieties to the Lord.
There was one particular scene where I slightly got a lump in my throat because it was so beautiful and heart wrenching at the same time. For those who have read it, you know what I am talking about.
Brandi, you're my hero.
And Tricia, thank you for giving King Respen a backstory, a reason for being bad.
Overall, I'd say this series is great for teens and is quite exciting. A little bit of violence, but appropriately dealt with.
As Respen's persecution increases, Renna and Brandi are forced to flee Walden. But escapades don't always go as planned. How will the Resistance respond? And will Leith ever be able to live as himself without everyone's varied impressions of him?
Loved this story, although ACK, that cliffhanger at the end!
Content warning for violence, mostly battle scenes.
