Hopefully now you understand the basis behind my extreme hatred towards Logan, because he truly is an awful character, and an even more awful love interest. Rddwine told you this wasn’t going to be a happy review! And speaking of Logan and Rachel The title, too, plays an important role in the story. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor’s impulsive daughter. Defiance Defiance Trilogy Author s: Such a cruel and disgusting excuse for a leader, the Commander lives on fear-mongering and thrives on abusing his power to get what he wants no matter what the cost to human life is.

There were, however, hints of a love triangle in the last part and I fervently hope that C. The role of women has taken a big leap back, which left me furious in a few instances. This books is not something I would like my younger sibling reading. Then there’s the love interest, Logan. Logan on the other hand, is one great male lead.

Defiance Series

The book had the potential to be amazing, but it got held up with poor characters and creepy kink and abysmal logic gaps. The fact that she can use weapons is not strong.

Strangely enough though, I still know nothing about the world of Defiance! Speaking of more, the only other issue I had was the world-building. Thus, he gently let her down when she once admitted to being in love with him. Fans who aren’t too picky about their worldbuilding and detail with find much to enjoy here, especially those who enjoy bittersweet teenaged romance.


Both Rachel and Logan are defiance personified. Because of Rachel’s idiotic actions, Logan gets caught up in it too. Once Commander Chase declares her father dead, Rachel Adams wastes no time in trying to come up with a plan to find him.

Why is he so power hungry and evil? Major points get deducted. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan–the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her. I like books that are subtle with their emotions, Defiance announces it with as much finesse as the lumbering Cursed One that wanders around and kills people like the prehistoric fire breathing dinosaur that it is.

I volunteer to kick him on the balls! And, enjoyed it I did. The whole story, characters, setting, and basically everything were super forgettable to the point where I feel like I just had my mind wiped right after finishing the book.

Rachel Adams lives in a city called Balboden where the women are meant to be obedient and docile Yikes! Most of the time it just left me feeling awkward. Not that she doesn’t deserve some of it. My original assumptions about her as a selfish 16 year old flew straight out of the window as she matured rapidly.

There are futuristic-gadgets, and yet much of the advanced technology we have available in our world is gone. See chapter one basically, where every third sentence tells me in a variety of maudlin ways how depressed Rachel feels that her father hasn’t come ch and is presumed dead.

Defiance (Defiance, #1) by C.J. Redwine

At first, she was just a character, and I sort of liked her. Redwins also frustrating for me that Rachel is literally the only girl in her walled city-state that can defend herself – it can make her bloodthirsty and dangerous personality look a bit inorganic for the novel and its setting.


As apprentice to the city’s top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape ci tyranny of Baalboden. As for our male lead, Logan, he comes off as a very condescending love interest who acts more like he’s highly irritated by Rachel than he’s apparently falling in love with her. This was the first red flag this book gave me that I wouldn’t end up liking Logan.

I’m defoance those who have no problems being told recwine to feel by paragraphs of obtuse language will have no problems loving this, but as for me, no thank you. Defiance 1 by C. And Rachel was absolutely like that.

I know that is exactly what I thought too. This article needs additional or more specific categories. It’s the way they’re written, angst filled, melodramatic, that annoys the hell out of me. He’s just evil to be evil. Not surprisingly, her rebellions mostly fail.

This is not the kind of thing you want to stick out in a book. I find them jarring and disruptive to the rhythm of the novel.

This is the love interest that is praised by readers. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself.

Rachel and Logan, while proving to be intriguing characters from the surface, are truly quite flat. Some people are brave, but most people are self-preserving first. The respective backstories for both her and Logan are delivered somewhat clumsily in infodumpy dialogue, but Redwine outgrows that early on and it doesn’t overshadow the the narrative for too long.
