Baalboden has been ravaged. The brutal Commander's whereabouts are unknown. And Rachel, grief stricken over her father's death, needs Logan more than ever. With their ragged group of survivors struggling to forge a future, it's up to Logan to become the leader they need—with Rachel by his side. Under constant threat from rival Carrington's army, who is after the device that controls the Cursed One, the group decides to abandon the ruins of their home and take their chances in the Wasteland.

But soon their problems intensify tenfold: someone—possibly inside their ranks—is sabotaging the survivors, picking them off one by one. The chaos and uncertainty of each day puts unbearable strain on Rachel and Logan, and it isn't long before they feel their love splintering. Even worse, as it becomes clear that the Commander will stop at nothing to destroy them, the band of survivors begins to question whether the price of freedom may be too great—and whether, hunted by their enemies and the murderous traitor in their midst, they can make it out of the Wasteland alive.

In this daring sequel to Defiance, with the world they once loved forever destroyed, Rachel and Logan must decide between a life on the run and standing their ground to fight.

OMG!!!! Seriously, DEFIANCE was hands down in my top 3 of 2012. The order and the books change, but THE most notable of 2012 were: CROWN OF EMBERS by Rae Carson, THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas, and DEFIANCE by C. J. Redwine. But I have them in no order, just these three books rocked my socks in a major way. I looove the covers for this series. If you notice the details at the bottom, the first cover had the surrounding walls of their city (and readers all know what happened at the end of book one!), and now we see rows of tents. I really have to stress how much I believe DEFIANCE was also one of the best romances of 2012. Best fantasy, best books, best everything. Sure I'd figured out how the Commander controlled everything, but that is a minor aspect on the overall genius of this story. I was on pins and needles breaking out into cold sweat, you never know who is safe, and who is dead meat. You are just wishing and gripping the book tight hoping that Rachel and Logan can live long enough to stay together. I cannot do justice to this story, but I hope I can impress upon you readers that it is worth it's weight in gold.

Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city’s brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan—the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself. But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.

At nineteen, Logan McEntire is many things. Orphan. Outcast. Inventor. As apprentice to the city’s top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor’s impulsive daughter. Logan is determined to protect her, but when his escape plan goes wrong and Rachel pays the price, he realizes he has more at stake than disappointing Jared.

As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can’t be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making.
