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.
My teaser, from p. 230 in the ARC:
Maybe I am strong enough. Maybe the things that crouch behind my inner silence wouldn't hurt me if I drag them into the light.I enjoyed Defiance last year, so I was so excited to get my hands on a copy of Deception early! (It certainly doesn't hurt that the protagonist's name is Rachel. That always makes me happy!)
Or maybe my secret horrors would cling to me with bloody fingers and destroy what's left of me.
I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! Have a lovely Tuesday!
