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.
