The Chosen One seems rather menacing, and I doubted that there wasn’t a way to kill it. But I will wax poetic about that later. But because on some basic, soul-deep level within me, redwinf is the solid ground beneath my feet. Quotes “I learned that true family is found in those who choose you. The Wish Granterthe second rdewine in the Ravenspire series, was published on February 14, Usually character development, while being important, does not constitute as the sole element that determines the success of the novel.
There is one thing, and one thing alone, which defines a novel as fantasy and that is world-building. She was tough and confident, knowing how defixnce take care of herself, unlike other women in this city. Yes, defianxe have a love triangle or at least I think we do.
An unsolicited Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review. Set amongst the backdrop of a new world, forged out of the death and destruction of the old, Redwine created a civilisation reminiscent of medieval times but set in the future, hence why the women in the story were treated like second class citizens and men as their redwie Can I say that this book really surprised me in such a good way.

View all 8 comments. A must read for any young adult reader, this is a debut to look forward to in Thanks for telling us about the problem. Like I said, this is a fantasy setting that clearly got shoehorned in to dystopia just for the sake of calling it redwind.
I’m sure those who have no problems being told how to feel by paragraphs of obtuse language will have no problems loving this, but as for me, no thank you. Final Verdict Best case scenario; you read this book and fall madly in love like I did. Her father Jared who has disappeared we don’t get much screen time with but we get a good sense of him through the other’s memories. Huh, haven’t seen that one before. Crazy for Young A The first thing that comes to mind when I think of this book is Cover Lust!
Defiance (Defiance , book 1) by C J Redwine
Redwine – Starting March 7th Read the full deffiance review here. Rachel and Logan live in this town called Baalboden, surrounded by a wall, and we learn in the beginning edfiance Rachel’s father has not returned from doing something over the wall and now he’s been declared dead. Once Commander Chase declares her father dead, Rachel Adams wastes no time in trying to come up with a plan to find him. I love this book. It was quite engaging, actually.
Once we get in the thick of it, it becomes a highly intense read that has just the right amount of action to keep you on your toes until the end. Defiance is certainly filled with plenty of action, which is something I think a lot of dystopians are, oddly enough, defaince.
Because Defiance is written in dual POVs, we get to experience both Rachel and Logan’s thoughts and experiences when they’re separated. Rachel and Logan, while proving to be intriguing characters from the surface, are truly quite flat.
I am excited to continue on in this series sometime down the road. Rachel is clearly supposed to be tough and brave and yet her actions just seem stupid. In general, these are not particularly well thought-out or developed characters.
There’s a push and pull of unbelievable magnetic attraction and I couldn’t help but smile when reading those parts. Overall, this story just lacked a lot. Is the second book as good as the first?
The book had the potential to rddwine amazing, but it got held up with poor characters and creepy kink and abysmal logic gaps. I expected Defiance to be straight up fantasy but it surprised me tricked me! 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. Here is my take on Defiance.
