Waiting on Wednesday (18): Defiance by C. J. Redwine

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers talk about the books they are most eager for!

Publisher: Balzer & Bray
Release Date: August 28th, 2012

Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city’s brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword. 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. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself. But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.

At nineteen, Logan McEntire is many things. Orphan. Outcast. Inventor. As apprentice to the city’s top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor’s impulsive daughter. Logan is determined to protect her, but when his escape plan goes wrong and Rachel pays the price, he realizes he has more at stake than disappointing Jared.

As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can’t be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making. (Summary from Goodreads)

  3. Great pick! I can't wait for this one either. I've heard nothing but outstanding things so far!

  4. I'm really excited for Defiance too! It sounds really exciting, plus I love how the MC sounds like a strong heroine and it's high fantasy! I think the International Edition is being released in Canada, so the cheaper paperback price is also nice too. Great WoW pick, Ciara! ^.~

  5. I just recently read this and I'm kinda iffy about how I feel about it- it started out GREAT, but then I found the ending to be a bit lackluster. :/ I'm curious to see what you think of it, though!

    PS. You should check to see if it is on Edelweiss, I know that it was for a fair bit there!


Thanks for stopping by! I love myself some comments so if you have one feel free to add it! Hope you have an awesomely book-filled day!
