Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Deception by C.J. Redwine. Here's the synopsis:

Baalboden has been ravaged. The brutal Commander's whereabouts are unknown. And Rachel, grief stricken over her father's death, needs Logan more than ever. With their ragged group of survivors struggling to forge a future, it's up to Logan to become the leader they need—with Rachel by his side. Under constant threat from rival Carrington's army, who is after the device that controls the Cursed One, the group decides to abandon the ruins of their home and take their chances in the Wasteland.

But soon their problems intensify tenfold: someone—possibly inside their ranks—is sabotaging the survivors, picking them off one by one. The chaos and uncertainty of each day puts unbearable strain on Rachel and Logan, and it isn't long before they feel their love splintering. Even worse, as it becomes clear that the Commander will stop at nothing to destroy them, the band of survivors begins to question whether the price of freedom may be too great—and whether, hunted by their enemies and the murderous traitor in their midst, they can make it out of the Wasteland alive.

In this daring sequel to Defiance, with the world they once loved forever destroyed, Rachel and Logan must decide between a life on the run and standing their ground to fight.

I really enjoyed Defiance and it's originality in terms of story and so OF COURSE I have to get the sequel!!  As always, the cover is lovely and matches the series so far (PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THEM MID SERIES, I BEG YOU!).  I'm pre ordering this as we speak. 

Deception is published on 27th August, 2013 in the US and 5th September, 2013 in the UK.   


  1. Great pick, I still haven't read the first book but seeing this cover makes me want to pick it up now!

    My WoW!

  2. The first book fell flat for me, but I must say after reading the blurb for this one I am intrigued. I may have to pick it up and see. Interesting pick.

    1. Really? :( I thought it was an interesting idea and I did enjoy it.

  3. I'm a bit behind on commenting but I'm catching up haha! I haven't read the first book yet so I'll need to give that a read before I check this one out.
