I want to thank Goodreads, Firstreads Giveaways and the Publisher, Scholastic Press for a copy of this book for review. Receiving a free copy has in no way influenced my opinions.
First, this was a big improvement over Defy, the first book. I started this immediately after Defy and I couldn't put it down. There is a lot more action and a lot more of the love story. I love how the "love triangle" is pretty much nonexistent. She is completely in love with Damian and doesn't complicate things to string Rylan along. Although, he is completely annoying in this book. He throws tantrums constantly when he knows that Alexa is in love with Damian. It's so immature and childish. It drove me nuts!
There is a lot more going on in this book that the plot constantly keeps moving. I would tell myself to wait until this is resolved and then I'll pay the bills. An hour would pass and I would still be reading. There is so much going on that there is really no stopping point. That reminds me, I need to pay my bills after writing up this review. :)
I love how Alexa and Damian's relationship grows in this book. It's more of an unselfish love, which is nice to read about. There is so much character growth in this book too. I love Eljin, Jax and Tanoori. It was fun to see their characters evolve and become part of a group. You get to know more of their back stories and it makes them so much more interesting. You get to understand more about their characters in the previous book too.
I really am looking forward to the next book. I need to know what happens next!
