Waiting on Wednesday: Defiance by CJ Redwine

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which bloggers post books they are eagerly anticipating to be released. I can't wait to read what everyone else is waiting on. I know my book wish-list appreciates it! No, really. This week, I'm waiting on:

Defiance by CJ Redwine
The Courier's Daughter Trilogy #1
(US) To be released August 28, 2012 by Balzer + Bray 
(UK) To be released September 6, 2012 by Atom

Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city's brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls sew dresses 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 one who handed her heart right back to her. Left with nothing but a 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. - From Goodreads
I'm so excited for this book, mainly because of the heroine that the summary promises. She sounds like such a strong character in such a dark dystopian world and it's only magnified by that glorious cover.


  1. I want to read this book too. It looks really good.

    My WoW

  2. I was lucky enough to receive an eARC of this one. :) I'm really excited to get started on it, because loads of people have been saying extremely great things about it. Great pick! :D
