Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like it! As a big fan of the fantasy genre, I had Defiance on my list of 2012 most-awaited-releases since last year and Oh boy! the wait was long, but it was really worth waiting for! I previously heard that there were some dystopian elements on Defiance and I was definitely able to see a little bit of it in Baalboden, which is the city where most of the story takes place and which is in fact, ruled by a tyran. However, the term post-apocalyptic fantasy (like C.J.Redwine likes to define her novel herself) sounds much more accurate. I did in fact felt like I was living this story in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world that felt wonderfully new. The city, the wastelands and the Cursed Ones are some of the elements that C.J. Redwine masterfully developed giving birth to a terrifying yet fascinating world. I was absolutely delighted to read a story told from two different points of view. Rachel and Logan are the two characters we get to deeply know in a course of 403 pages. I love getting to know Rachel and Logan's thoughts. The story flows wonderfully and the romance between these two charming characters is really well balanced. Thanks to the dual points of view, readers have the chance to know each side of the coin and we get to know what both, Rachel and Logan, think about each other ( I SO enjoyed this!) and we also get to know in details both characters' story. I grew to love both characters deeply, but Rachel was definitely a very different kick-ass heroine. Rachel is in fact very good at fighting, but she goes through some quiet traumatic events that push her to the limits. It was quiet unsettling to see the main character lose it so badly. However, seeing her in shock was absolutely understandable after what she went through (I don't think I would have handle things any better). What doesnt kill you makes you stronger, and I love seeing the reasons why this characters turns into a stronger one, rather than meeting a super physically and emotionally strong character from the beginning of the book. This definitely felt different, even unsettling (as I previously said) yet, it is absolutely credible plus it backups character's development. Filled with action, adventure, danger and breathtaking romance, Defiance is the gripping and heart-racing beginning for a new great fantasy series!
