Lili St Crow
Release Date: April 19, 2011
Rating: 4.5 stars
The heart-stopping fourth novel in New York Times bestselling author Lili St. Crow’s Strange Angels series.
Now that sixteen-year-old Dru’s worst fears have come true and Sergej has kidnapped her best friend Graves, she’ll have to go on a suicidal rescue mission to bring him back in one piece.
That is, if she can put all of Christophe’s training to good use, defeat her mother’s traitor, Anna, once and for all, and manage to survive another day . . .
I absolutely love this series – it is so much fun to read.
The new characters that were introduced in Defiance were awesome! I really loved Nathalie. She was so much fun, and I thought a much needed female in the book. I loved what she brought to the story. The old characters were just as great as before. I still am very Team Christophe :)
My biggest issue with Defiance was that Dru came off as a sort of weaker character in this one towards the end, contrasting with the ultra strong heroine she has always been. She was also way too gullible in this one – which led to her doom. I called it out right away.
The plot was awesome! There was so much action and in Defiance there was so much conflict! The story in this series never gets old, and something new is always popping up. I am now counting down the days until Reckoning – November cannot come soon enough!
I recommend this series 100%! It is so fun and full of tons of kickass characters. There is always a ton of action in the books, and they’re super fast reads. You will become addicted to them with page one. A must read!
