Defiance had everything I need in a book- a strong female lead, a fabulous love interest, a villain that makes my skin crawl and a plot that makes me forget about my life momentarily.
Here are a few things I loved about this book-
- The dual POV: I've stated many times that I'm not a huge fan of books told from multiple personalities so I was a little bugged when I realized Defiance was one of those books. But once I got to know Rachel and Logan I realized the story could not have been told by just one of them.
- The "Cursed One"- I don't want to say much because I want you to discover this on your own. I'm intrigued by this character and am anxious to see where the battle with it goes. (Vague much? Sorry! Read the book and you'll understand.)
- Rachel- this girl is kick-ass! She is strong and brave and more than a tad stubborn. She's also scared and broken. Watching her go through the things she does in this book is brutal. I have a feeling that by the end of this trilogy she will rise above even my expectations of a strong, independent woman. I can't wait to see her journey!
- Logan- he's nerdy, insecure and carries quite a few emotional scars. He's also deliciously swoon-worthy. *sigh* I love me some Logan.
