Perfect for fans ofGraceling, 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 Wasteland.
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?
