Waiting on Wednesday (#63): Deliverance by C.J. Redwine


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Deliverance by C.J. Redwine
Book Three of the Defiance series
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Publication Date: August 26, 2014

Summary (from Goodreads):

Everything hangs in the balance, and nothing is certain: Rachel has been kidnapped by enemy forces and is being taken to Rowansmark while Logan, imprisoned and awaiting trial, is unable to leave Lankenshire. Separated from each other and their Baalboden comrades, each must find a way to achieve what they desperately want: to rid their world once and for all of the Commander and the tech that controls the deadly Cursed One.

Fighting through her pain and embracing the warrior she’s become, Rachel will do whatever it takes to escape her enemies’ clutches and join Logan in his fight. But when she learns a secret that changes everything, she realizes that escaping Ian and his tracker friends is no longer an option if she wants to save the people she loves. Instead, she’ll have to destroy Rowansmark from the inside out—if she can survive the journey through the Wasteland.

Logan needs allies if he wants to thwart Rowansmark’s power grab and rescue Rachel. But securing allies will mean betraying his beliefs and enlisting the help of the man he hates more than anyone: Commander Jason Chase. Driven by his fierce love for Rachel and his determination to make their world safe, Logan may be just the weapon the city-states need to defeat the Cursed One.

But as Rowansmark bears down and uneasy alliances are tested, will Rachel and Logan’s love for each other be enough to surmount the unbelievable odds against them?



Because why not?! The end to ANOTHER trilogy. Scariness! But I'm super pumped.

    1. Me too! Harper definitely pulled me in with the covers. I'm sorry to hear that! I feel like it's an intelligent kind of fantasy, so it's not for everyone. But I love it. OMG. Thank you!

    1. It wasn't *horrible* in my opinion - I almost expect similar cliffhangers in book two of a trilogy. Like The Crown of Embers. THE ENDINGS ARE ALWAYS LIKE THAT IN BOOK TWO D:

      Thank you!

  22. SCROOOOOOOOOLLING past the synopsis because I haven't read Deception yet! I will NOT spoil myself; it's happened too many times recently. But I LOVE these covers! The girl looks so cool and like she could beat me up, which is kind of awesome. And since I see the word cliffhanger for book two about, I think I'll wait till this is available for my consumption to read book two. :D Muahahahaha.

    Great pick Alyssa! :)

    1. HAHAHA good for you, Rachel! But do get on that. The cover model did an incredible job with the shoot, and the photographer/graphic editor/cover designer/etc. are so talented! Book two does have a bit of cliffhanger :( But that's a great idea, Rachel!

      Thank you!
