Summary (Goodreads. Da real MVP):

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.

My Thoughts:
This book was a helluva great sequel!
In the first book, Rachel had to make some insanely tough decisions, and you really see the psychological turmoil she’s battling through, understandably so. Her and Logan become a force to be reckon with, though I thought their dependency on each other was a bit annoying. Still, their vows and love for each other keep growing, and it’s heartwarming to see them stay strong for each other.

Logan is such a puppy. He is taking on a responsibility that is much more than he should, and he places the burden solely on himself. While I applaud him for his efforts, I did think it was kind of bizarre for a large group to be travelling with just a teenager as their leader. We were literally bound for disaster. We also see Logan battling his own inner demons as well as the physical ones always trying to kill them, and the love he has for Rachel and for everyone else in their company is really heartwarming and AGH

I seriously LOOOVE Quinn, he’s probably my all time favourite character in this book. Moreso than Logan. He’s mysterious, but also unendingly loyal, and I don’t think he gets the recognition he deserves. Willow too! She’s more badass than Rachel, and doesn’t give a second thought in her actions, which is kind of brash, but I AM HERE FOR IT.

The mystery in this book was one that I kind of caught around half way, but I enjoyed that you didn’t know who to trust, what to trust, and how deep loyalties go. It was so intriguing.

Final Thoughts: The title is exactly what his book is really about, Deception. hella deception all over the place. Deliverance, COME TO ME
