Deliverance (Defiance #3) by C.J. Redwine

My Copy: Hardcover, 470 pages
Publication Date: August 26, 2014
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Source: Library

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?

My Review

For the majority of this book, Logan and Rachel are separated again. It’s interesting, I’m a huge fan of romance, but something about when these two are apart makes me enjoy the story more. I think maybe it’s because it’s more intense and exciting, because they are both going through their own crazy journeys while worrying about each other and trying to get back to each other to the other. It makes for a more interesting story to me. Therefore, I liked the first and third books better than the second of this series.

This book was good. I enjoyed it. Rachel continues to heal and grow as a character throughout this book. Logan learns new things about his life and has to overcome them and he becomes a stronger character because of that.

I still never got my answer as to how they were able to create devices that control the tanniyn. This frustrates me. I just don’t understand how that’s possible and I wish it would have been explained. It should have been explained.

Otherwise, the book was good overall. Again, the ending was my favourite part. I love how the endings in all of these books are completely intense and action packed and the chapters are super short, which ups the intensity, and you just can’t put the books down at the end. I enjoyed the series as a whole and I would recommend it.
