C.j.redwone is the reason for so much suffering within the walls and why he needs to be brought down. I like flawed characters, I appreciate them much more than a perfect protagonist with no life or vivacity, but Rachel can deriance be very frustrating to read because she is so determined to make her own way without telling anyone or trusting her family. Explain it to me. Such a thing is necessary to the survival of a colony of people that do not leave the walls.
Jun 29, Sandes gii rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Cursed One is intriguing and scary Redwine’s debut novel, and think it will find a wide audience. 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 dfeiance in the story were treated like second class citizens and men as their protec Can Ny say that this book really surprised me in such a good way.

I tried several times to start this review with something clever or profound, something that would let you know I mean Serious Business about this book. Want to Deriance saving…. Eve Eve Trilogybook 1 Anna Carey. I was also kept fascinated by the idea of a fire breathing beast roaming just outside the walls, giving the book a little fantastical feel.
Ok, except Rachel just happens to live in c.j.redwinne misogynistic town, where all the woman hate is supposed to make me feel sorry for her.
Rachel and Logan live in this town called Baalboden, surrounded by a wall, and we learn in the beginning that Rachel’s father has not returned from doing something over the wall and now he’s been declared dead. Instead, I’m rolling my eyes at the cartoonish way Logan escapes from the dungeon by using a portable drill to dig a tunnel under a wall Wile E. While I think Redwine handled the dual POVs very well, when I stopped reading and returned quite a bit later, it was hard to tell whether I was reading from Logan’s perspective or Rachel’s perspective for a page or two.
Can you make it dystopian? They are few and far between, but at least they seem worth remembering.
Way to go Marketing team! What little there was, however, I liked well enough.
The Scenario Complex I found this book repetitive as well. In fact, the world building is so poor, we’re never actually given a time period in which this book takes place.
Rachel is a strong heroine. It wasn’t flawless but it was certainly good.

Mar 21, Nafiza rated it really liked it Shelves: To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself.
Which caused me to have a hard time liking her right away. Strangely enough though, I still know nothing about c.j.rdwine world of Defiance! It lacked world-building, it lacked feeling, it lacked character depth and it now also lacks my stamp of approval. Rachel lives with her father Jared the city’s best tracker and courier, and her father’s a An unsolicited Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review.
So you can just imagine how ecstatic I was when I got approved for an ARC of it, I almost c.j.redwien jumping up and down like a three-year old kid.
