Waiting on Wednesday (11)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine and it's used to showcase the upcoming releases we're excited about.

One of my most anticipated books for the year is Defiance. Gorgeous cover. Amazing summary. I really, honestly, can't wait to see how it turns out to be! I always love strong, fighter heroines. And Defiance sounds like the perfect example.

Defiance (Defiance #1) by C.J. Redwine

Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city’s brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan—the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father’s survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself. But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.

At nineteen, Logan McEntire is many things. Orphan. Outcast. Inventor. As apprentice to the city’s top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor’s impulsive daughter. Logan is determined to protect her, but when his escape plan goes wrong and Rachel pays the price, he realizes he has more at stake than disappointing Jared.

As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can’t be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making.

One of my favourite lines of the summary is this one: "While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword." <-- Because I love strong, fighter heroines just as much as you do and Rachel sounds so perfect for that title! :) I just can't wait to read this book too! I haven't read any reviews on it yet, but I can already tell that it's going to be awesome -- hopefully we're both right! ♥

Ah-MAZING pick for your WOW this week, Sophie! I hope your Wednesday is filled with awesomeness all day long! :)
