Waiting on Wednesday #59: ‘Deception’ by C.J. Redwine


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, Hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.



Defiance #2

C.J. Redwine

Publication Date:
August 27th, 2013

Balzer + Bray

Hardcover, 480 pages

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.

Good Reads


Pre-ordered this one for good reason.. Dystopian novel with strong female and male characters with a crazy villain to boot! Loved Defiance so I can’t wait for this one either.

What do you think about my pick for this week?

    Haven’t had the chance to read Defiance yet, but I am excited to. And I have no doubt that when I finish it up, I will absolutely be waiting on Deception, too! And I love the cover. My only compaint is that It isn’t quite as badass as the first cover of the series, but I still love it!

    There’s always hope that there will be a crack in the space/time continuum and but some magical twist of fate it gets published early, right? RIGHT?!?!
    Uh, boy, I’ve got to wait until August, don’t I? Ugh.
