Customer Reviews of Deception

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A book divided 3.5 stars. Rachel's chapters were five star chapters. Logan's were two star chapters. I took the average. Let it be said, first off, that this had nothing to do with how much I actually liked either character. As a person, Logan was a lot easier to deal with than Rachel, seeing as she spent most of the book a self-destructive black hole of emotion, and Logan spent most of the book as a constructive go-get-er who refused to back down from any challenge and had half a dozen contingency plans for each. That said, those exact character distinctions was what made their chapters so different and five stars and two stars, respectively. Rachel's chapters were tense and emotional and heartbreaking, and usually involved action or character connection. Logan's chapters were all about moving and wagon trails and logistics and mapmaking and endless problem solving. This book had great stuff going for it - action and romance and intrigue and murder and mystery and tension and emotion and heartbreak and redemption - interspersed amongst a whole lot of moving around and talking, especially in the first half. It just so happened that most of Rachel's chapters lined up with the former, while Logan's took the brunt of the latter. Of course, there were exceptions to both rules, but in general, that was the trend. I'm looking forwards to the next book because, with Logan and Rachel separated, I'm hoping to see a better balance of pros and cons between their chapters and their storytelling. One big thing that nearly pushed this book to four stars was Rachel's arc. It was heartbreaking and oh so real, and the birth scene in the hospital nearly made me cry, so props for that.

Praise for DEFIANCE: “DEFIANCE defies all reader expectations, giving us both a post-apocalyptic setting rife with history and a plot that’s as much about the discovery of one’s own humanity as it is about survival.”
