Deliverance (Defiance, #3)

Published: August 26th, 2014
Genres: YA, Dystopian, Sci-f

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?

Check Out My Review Of DEFIANCE & DECEPTION!!


I have been on my toes, waiting impatiently for the final book in the DEFIANCE series to be released. Then when it finally landed on my door step, I jumped for joy!! My UPS man probably thought I was crazy because I was acting like a nut, jumping up and screaming in glory! I instantly tore it open and was in a moment of pure bliss!!! I was hugging it, and petting it, and staring it, and then I was reading it, and finally, I was LOVING IT!!! Are you starting to see the full depth of my love for this!? :)


Leaders are at their breaking point, Cities are crumbling, people are dying, and war is on the horizon. The Cursed Ones, the fire breathing monsters that live under the earth have destroyed the world that once was. And now people live in walled in Cities under the rule of they're Leaders, all hoping just to survive if The Cursed Ones surface from underground. Most people just want safety, security, and a reliable Leader that can be trusted to look out for the people, and not just himself. But everything is about to change, for everyone.

Rachel and Logan have been separated, both fighting the same battle for the same goal, but in different locations. And are both willing to do the unthinkable to come out on top of this impending war!! But it won't be easy, as they've both been left broken, shattered, and striped away from everything they love. But one thing is for certain, they're not giving up, and their determined to keep fighting until the very last drop of their blood is shed. Until they are breathless and have no strength left to go on. But they are not there yet, and they don't plan on it!!!


Rachel has been kidnapped by Logan's sadistic estranged brother Ian, and is being forced against her will to make the long tiresome journey to Rowansmark to receive pain atonement for her so called "Crimes" and to await Logan's arrival with the stolen tech that every one's been fighting for. But Rachel is beaten down and her body still recuperating from Ian's last plot that killed many, and left others burned and deformed by the white phosphorous bombs that Ian and his tracker accomplices from Rowansmark had laid out for her group to suffer through the pain atonement that he thought Logan and Rachel deserved. Her body is wearing down and she barely has enough strength to make the long trek through the Wasteland, let alone take on Ian and his trackers. But she has no choice if she has any chance at stopping the Commander and bring down Rowansmark before it's to late. And she'll need every bit of healing and strength she can get, but Rachel's journey is just getting started, and it's going to be deadly!!!!


Logan thought he lost it all when his families secrets were finally revealed. He thought his world was shattered to the breaking point. But he finds out just how wrong he is when Rachel is taken from him by his estranged brother Ian. And that's when Logan's world explodes into a world of unbearable pain and torture. He is prepared to do the unthinkable to get Rachel back. Even sell his soul to the devil, in which he may just have to do if he has any chance of building allies in different Cities, Leading a march on Rowansmark to free Rachel, bring justice to his insane brother, stop a sadistic Leader, and end the Commander once and for all. His final battle has just begun, and if he has any chance of surviving and bring any peace to their world, he'll have to be prepare to defeat them all, or die trying!!!

verall, DELIVERANCE was epic, totally EPIC!! It tied up a lot of loose ends and emerged into a direction that I was HIGHLY satisfied with. I loved the writing, the character development and growth, the action and adventure that never stopped, the swoony unforgettable romance, and everything else that C.J. Redwine delivered in this book. It's a series that will stay on my shelf and in my heart for years to come!!
