    1. I can't wait to read this book. I can't believe people would leave such insulting remarks. If you disliked the first book so much why bother commenting on the next one if its not worth your time?I've waited a long time to read this and I really enjoyed it. I once again fell in love with Logan and felt so bad for him, having the weight of the world on his shoulders. I loved the duo POV, swapping between Rachel and Logan. Although I really liked Rachel I wished she would just open up a little. The [...]


    2. 2.5 starsReview to come?Ok I have rants on this book and they mostly revolve around the nothingness of oh about 70% of this book! Seriously I feel like this series has been stretched out to make it 3 books when it should have been 2.The good news? The last 30% of this book was an EASY 4 star rating. Unfortunately the first 70% was a 2 at best (because nothing happened!). I think they just needed to talk less, travel faster, and condense this into a duology and this would have been a great serie [...]


    3. SpoilersMeh, just another below average YA book. Everything was so predictable — there was nothing original about the plot, the characters, the relationships, or the world building. -The world building lacked imagination and originality. It was the same old dystopian world that's present in other YA books — there was a city (Baalboden) surrounded by a wall to keep out some really bad thing, there was the stereotypical evul-power-hungry-commander guy in charge, there were secrets about how th [...]


    4. Deception, how I love thee! Let me count the ways.oh wait too many to count! In all honesty this book was seriously to die for. After loving Defiance to death last year, this book was easily my most anticipated. And boy did Redwine deliver a powerful sequel. My mind is blown. To smithereens. Now floating in the atmosphereokay you get the picture. Basically my worries about Deception having Second Book Syndrome? Blown to smithereens. Something is seriously wrong with me.Just as in Defiance, Rache [...]


    5. This was not a book about Rachel. Yes, I know she’s on the cover and I know the blurb goes on and on about her. But this was not Rachel’s book. This was Logan’s book. Rachel spent the majority of the book going on about being broken and basically hollowing herself of all emotions and being a shell of a character that just floated through the plot. She was utterly unremarkable. Logan, on the other hand, had all the angst and all the drama and all the action and all the backstory and all the [...]


    6. So what happened?I was really looking forward to reading this. After Defiance, I just know there's so much potential for this series. But boy, was I disappointed. First, let me say that I love books that focuses on the humanity of people. No matter what plot there is, what action scenes or love scenes there are, it always goes back to "How do you hold on to being humane in spite of everything that's happening?". This kind of books almost always have a lot of me-time with the main protagonist's t [...]


    7. These days, eight out of ten middle books in trilogies are complete letdowns, but as long as there are shining stars like Deception, I won’t stop hoping that more authors will find a way to make those second installments less clichéd and more interesting. Fortunately for me and her other readers, this is a lesson C. J. Redwine doesn’t need. Deception picks up mere days after the end of Defiance. Logan was chosen as leader of their group, which consists of around a hundred Balbodeen survivor [...]


    8. I don't know why it took me so long to pick up the sequel. When I'm reading these books I'm thoroughly enjoying them!


    9. Gorgeous. Gorgeous characters. Gorgeous writing. Gorgeous worldbuilding.Gorgeous FEELINGS.Now I need the third please!


    10. Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! 4.5 starsI cannot believe I was going to give up on this book. It was dragging on for the first 30% but then POW! I got sucker punched right into the story until I was freaking knee deep in it with no escape out until I read to the very end. And boy, oh boy, oh boy what an ending it was. I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING AT ALL. Got me good and clean. This goes to show how much of an exceptional writer Redwine is. To not only weave such a suspenseful and plot twisting story, but a worl [...]



    11. I can't decide if I like this book better than the first or not. It started out great then kind of sagged in the middle only to have a great last 25% or so. Also, despite Rachel being on the cover, this was more a Logan book - thank the heavens. Picking up where the first left off, Rachel and Logan are trying to keep their people safe and at the same time find a way to stop the Commander. But nothing comes easy for our group as they are chased through the Wasteland by the Commanders army and als [...]


    12. Deception is full of exactly that--Deception. Who can you trust when the greed for power takes precedence over loyalty? The ruthless Commander is back to claim the tech device and he has paired up with another city-state.Logan and Rachel have their hands full. Not only does Logan have the weight of leading the remaining Baalboden citizens, but he is constantly having to reassure them that he is a nineteen-year-old fit for the job, even if he questions it himself at times. He doesn’t want to di [...]


    13. OHWD. I read defiance in less than 3 hours and I was a crazy person in my house trying to convince my sisters how good the book was. I seriously cannot wait to see the LOVE in this book, ^-^ the couple in defiance was seriously freaking A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E, ugh -_- but i really hope there isn't a love triangled for those of you who have absolutely no idea what i'm talking about here is the preview.Baalboden has been ravaged. The brutal Commander's whereabouts are unknown. And Rachel, grief stricken [...]


    14. When I read Defiance, I just couldn't stop reading it. This book series is WAY better than the Hunger Games. This is how dystopian YA books should be written. The plot is genius, the characters amazing. Not to mention she added a monster that could possibly be related to Godzilla. What more could you want. I am dying to read this book, and can't wait for it to come out. This series is definitely a must-read.I am adding this second part of of the review because now I have actually read the book. [...]



    15. 3.25 starsI feel utmost obliged to appreciate how wonderfully C.J Redwine writes. Damn, the feels tho As for the plot, I felt it was quite dragged I was bored till the 50% of this book. Only few parts were interesting. Redwine was stretching the book, honestly. Thus it took me a while to finishHowever, after 50-60% the story got intriguing! I was at the edge of my seat! Damn! The pain of the characters is so amazingly described. And the some secrets were discovered, quite unexpected really.Furth [...]


    16. Meh. That's all I can say at the moment, meh. I wasn't expecting much and as predicted, I didn't receive much. Deception picks off right where Defiance ends. Baalboden has been burned to the ground and Rachel and Logan must lead their people to refuge. But by doing so, they must travel through the dangerous Wasteland. Like the shady surroundings around them, there's some sketchy stuff going on. With a traitor among them and a battalion racing behind them, the stakes are high, and no one will be [...]


    17. I loved this follow up to Defiance and I can't wait for the next book in the series. I loved being back with Rachel and Logan and loved them both as much as I remembered from Defiance. Deception is full of action, emotions, small steamy scenes, healing, friendship, betrayal, secrets and fighting against all odds. This is in no way a filler book, and I loved every second.Revenge is a big theme in this one, and we see how it drives so many of the survivors. They all have lost people and their home [...]


    18. Is that ash falling off the sky?*squints*Interesting. I just like the cover. Why must I get cover biased every. single. time? I mean, I had such great problems with Defiance so my instincts SCREAM I should stay away from this butPretty Cover, fuck it. Hmp. If I read this, what could go wrong? Really guys, give me options. Could it be possible that this book defies all the logical conception of mathematics & goes upward (unlike its predecessor)?Nah. Don't think so.At all. As long as Rachel &a [...]


    19. Well call me pleasantly surprised by this one. I'll be honest, the first 30% of it was pretty slow. I had to make myself continue on with the hope that it would eventually pay off in the end and boy did it pay off! Big time. The twists and turns and surprises were bigger and better than I anticipated. I can honestly say that I was leafing through the pages lick a mad woman through the last quarter of this book. Will definitely be reading the last book in this trilogy for sure.


    20. It's rare that there are second books in YA trilogies that do not suffer from any form of sophomore book syndrome. Deception, fortunately, strays away from any kind of second-book syndrome and managed to stand strong next to it's predecessor, Defiance, one of my favorite reads of 2012. Redwine weaved together a story with strong characters without falling into holes of cliches. For me, Deception was quite the exceptional read!Rachel and Logan were both spectacular main characters in Defiance. I [...]


    21. Oh My JellybeansThis book was so amazing I don't have the words to describe it! It was so worth the wait from the library let me tell ya! As I've mentioned a LOT of times, I'm an emotional reader and when a book invokes a reaction in me, they are at the 4 star level. But when they make me cry, laugh, and jump around like a crazy person because I'm so caught up that I think it's happening to me or my best friend? That is a five star book.Deception gave me that reaction. There is a lot of heartbre [...]


    22. Extremely enjoying this series so far. I'm so happy for the lack of a love triangle in this series because I loathe them. I never had a doubt that their would be but I'm happy it was clarified in this book that Quinn and Rachel would have a platonic relationship. I also have to thank the author for allowing our main characters to think about doing STUPID things but not actually going through with them, it's refreshing and nice to see characters think twice before acting. Also the "cursed one" ha [...]


    23. I think this book just left me speechless.Once again, C. J. Redwine make me speechless. She also makes me want to throw my books and cry in a corner.She really developed Rachel and Logan's characters excellently. Though I have to say it took me just a little while to develop my love for this book.It kind of slow in the beginning, though it will get addictive, plot-twists will be thrown to you. A BIG one.So, 4/5 stars!I definitely recommend this book to YA readers! Although read Defiance first. I [...]


    24. Here's my favorite thing about this sequel: Rachel sort of loses her stuff. I love that. How many books have we read where the main character kicks butt -- but almost in a machine-like manner. Rachel's a pretty kick-butt heroine, but she's so humanized in this book in that she's racked with grief and guilt and breaks down pretty majorly. It was hard to read (and sacrificed some of the romance I loved in the first book, booo), but it was really refreshing!Check out AnnaReads for the full review: [...]


    25. Somehow, despite how utterly gorgeous this cover is, the synopsis just isn't doing it for me. In fact, it's absolute garbage. Damn. Such a waste for such a pretty book. Why can't I judge books properly by their covers?


    26. Mal wieder ein Fall von "ich lese die Fortsetzung, weil ich sie schon besitze, gekauft hätte ich sie mir auf keinen Fall!".


    27. Seriously!! I mean seriously?? Now THAT is what you call a sequel!!! Incredible!!!(Full review will be posted when blog tour begins)


    28. It was a pretty good read. Be sure to check out both Defiance and Deception to get the whole story! Great storyline and I can't wait to see what happens next!
