Today I have the honor of closing the Deception blog tour, hosted by Mundie Moms! This is a HUGE honor because it's my first Mundie Moms' blog tour, and to be included at all is just so cool (also, do you see all the totally awesome bloggers I"m part of this tour with!?). You can check out the previous stops on the tour here.
I read and loved Defiance so I'm excited that I get to show you all a sneak peek at it's sequel, which is on shelves now! (Although due to the large number of books in my library I've been unable to read.)
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, which 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, slowly killing them off. 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 survivors begin 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.
C. J. Redwine lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with her four beautiful kids, an amazing husband, two fairly crazy cats, and a dog. She has books in every corner of her house, an impressive Harry Potter memorabilia collection, and a bunch of really cool friends she doesn't get to see nearly as much as she'd like to. She is also the author of Defiance.
"...... What better way to pay a debt than to keep his ridiculously headstrong daughter alive and well?"
"She is ridiculously headstrong, isn't she?" A weary smile tugs at my lips. The rest of my life might be an ugly lie, but I can trust Rachel to be exactly who she's always been.
He rolls his eyes. "I care about Rachel, but you have to admit she's unbelievably stubborn. Bossy. Never listens. Never! Keeping up with her is a full time job. There'll be no rest for the man who chooses to spend her life loving her."
I feel a little lighter. "I'll rest when I'm dead."
"I want to explain what you saw. I think it's important that you understand."
"Yeah, I'm still wondering what the girl I love was doing in your lap."
WHAT!? You guys, what is going on here!? Also, IS THIS FROM LOGAN'S POV!? AHHH!!!! It's such a tiny snippet but I just want the book even MORE now. Okay, that's it, I'm going out and buying this book today. Is anyone else?
And be sure to check out the first book in the series, Defiance, if you haven't already!
