Perfect for fans of Graceling, this final
installment in the Defiance trilogy drives Rachel and Logan to
conquer their greatest enemies-the Commander and the Cursed
One-once and for all
Everything hangs in the balance, and nothing is certain: Rachel
has been kidnapped by enemy forces and is being taken to Rowansmark
while Logan, imprisoned and awaiting trial, is unable to leave
Lankenshire. Separated from each other and their Baalboden
comrades, each must find a way to achieve what they desperately
want: to rid their world of the Commander and the tech that
controls the deadly Cursed One once and for all.
Rachel, for her part, isn't waiting around to be rescued.
Fighting through her pain and embracing the warrior she's become,
she will do whatever it takes to escape her enemies' clutches and
find her way back to Logan, to join him in his fight. But when she
learns a secret that changes everything, Rachel realizes that
escaping Ian and his tracker friends is no longer an option if she
wants to save Logan. Instead, she'll have to destroy Rowansmark
from the inside out-if she can survive the journey through the
Logan needs allies if he wants to thwart Rowansmark's power grab
and rescue Rachel. But securing allies will mean betraying his
beliefs and enlisting the help of the man he hates more than
anyone: Commander Jason Chase. Driven by his fierce love for Rachel
and his determination to make his world safe, he may be just the
weapon the city-states need to defeat the Cursed One.
But as Rowansmark bears down with all its might and uneasy
alliances are tested, will the pair's love for each other be enough
to surmount the unbelievable odds against them?
