Defiance is a fast paced and well written debut from an author who will be one to watch in the future. A daring combination of Fantasy, Dystopia and Sci-Fi featuring great characters and set in a grim future where women are chattels and life is cheap. Rachel is a headstrong young woman whose father has trained her to survive and to fight, even though in this new world women are bought and sold and are not allowed out alone. Logan has been appointed her protector now that her father is missing and the responsibility weighs heavily on the young apprentice. The citadel in which they live is ruled by a cruel dictator who is keeping secrets from the people he claims to protect. Outside the walls a frightening monster stalks the forest hunting humans but it is to the forest the intrepid young pair must go in search of Rachel’s father and a package he has hidden. A great well plotted adventure which will appeal to fans of Graceling and the Hunger Games.
