#Giveaway Dragon Month with Deliverance (Defiance #3) by C.J. Redwine ~ Review by Fallon

5 Out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

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 once and for all of the Commander and the tech that controls the deadly Cursed One.

Fighting through her pain and embracing the warrior she’s become, Rachel will do whatever it takes to escape her enemies’ clutches and join Logan in his fight. But when she learns a secret that changes everything, she realizes that escaping Ian and his tracker friends is no longer an option if she wants to save the people she loves. 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 their world safe, Logan may be just the weapon the city-states need to defeat the Cursed One.

But as Rowansmark bears down and uneasy alliances are tested, will Rachel and Logan’s love for each other be enough to surmount the unbelievable odds against them?

Fallon's Review:

I received an ARC of this from the publisher for a fair and honest review. Thank you Balzer + Bray.

This book picks right back up where Deception left off. Rachel is kidnapped by Ian and Logan is desperate to find her. He will gather an army to bring her back to him. Rachel is no damsel in distress though. 

I love the fact Rachel has worked through her grief and found that fierce spark once again. There are only two strong heroines I feel are strong in all the books I have read, Rachel from Courier's trilogy and Katsa from Graceling. I think what makes Rachel so strong is she understands her weaknesses and compensates for them.

Here is my favorite quote from the book and it is not a spoiler. Rachel in reference to Logan "Missing him feels like something I was born to do. I breathe. I blink. I miss Logan. I couldn't stop if I tried. I don't try. I want the hurt. The ache that threads through my body until I can't separate the pain in my arm from the pain in my heart. Ian was right about one thing - pain reminds me that I'm still alive. Still here. Still moving forward even when it would be so much easier to stop."

Deliverance is like when Game of Thrones ends, you never will be happy when it ends. I will miss Rachel and Logan. This was a spectacular series CJ Redwine gave the world. I will forever admire Rachel's tenacity. Respect Logan's loyalty. Defiance Trilogy ended on a perfect note and this series had it all action, grief, dragons, dystopian future, tough chicks and romance. I am giving this entire series 5 out of 5 stars because together they earn that rating and even individually they earn it. This is a must read.
