The Defiant By Lesley Livingston(2/2)

The Valiant

The Defiant

So if you haven’t read the first one………………….what are you doing here? I have the links above so…you should get them, they’re good, go and read the first one.  Then when you’re done with that please go read my book review (I mean I know it’s cringe but it would mean a lot to me.) BUT IF YOU HAVE READ THE BOOK AND ARE STILL HERE WITH ME… thank you. Okay so we left off on characters but for the people who haven’t read this I’ll go into the little catchup.

Fallon won the competition or whatever ya know, so NOW everything is alright in the world……and for any of us who know, just no, no. So remember that one scene where that evil character that Fallon beat in book one and there was that scene where our girl was alone in the catacombs? Yeah that scene comes back to haunt her and take everything from our girl.

Okay so no that we got all of this I just wanted to say something about THE AMAZONS (Oh my these ladies were my everything like yes) I loved them for basically the same reasons I love our girls Fallon and Elka. Elka! Oh she was my everything in this book, she didn’t shine that much in the first book but she sure did in this one! She was humorous and we got to know her more as a person, I was living for this spotlight on her. But let’s get back to the Amazons. They were hardcore with that almost death ceremony for Sorcha. And then the whole shield thing going on which was freaking cool, and they all learned it on a boat too. Then after that wasn’t a thing they all still had to go back to fight the other people who stole their Colosseum. I was dying of laughter when the general was all like ,”oh yeah I’ll stay in place of them and if one of them die, you can just kill me no biggie.” Like dude (laughing) you could die, but then I was I like this old man still has a sliver of game (what is this?). So while I was dying at that I just imagine the Amazons just looking at each other and shrugging. (Imagine those dead pan anime characters who just have no emotions, that’s how I imagined the scene go down)

The relationship between Cai and Fallon was there but at this point I wasn’t living that much. It reminded me of Four and Tris in divergent, they were stuck, trying to make it work but they just made each other mad. SO with all of that in mind, I was more focused on getting Sorcha and the Colosseum back like everyone else.  For a while I thought Fallon was going to just go on her own and kill everyone but she didn’t.

As I stated before this book is amazing! I reccommend it to anyone if they love gladiators or just cool new YA fiction to read. So like always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!
