  • Cindy ✩☽ Savage Queen ♔
    "The only greater punishment than death is to be asked to die over and over again." As with the first book, the writing is engaging and the plot steady, never was there a dull moment. We are again pushed to question what it means to be alive. How do we measure the value of one life versus another? Again, makes us question the notion that some lives are more worth saving. And reminds us once again that home is not necessarily a place. It's a feeli...

    4.25/5This book was such a wild ride. There was so much action and I'm a little shook after finishing it haha Noemi and Abel are such amazing characters, and I love seeing Abel grow through the books. The science and technology in these stories is so well thought out, although a little scary look for the futureI'd say I didn't like this book quite as much as the first one, I can't place why exactly, I just didn't feel quite as amazed this time ar...

    Deep breath. “Six months after Noemi’s departure, Abel still has to consciously steer his thoughts to other topics daily. Maybe human love is different. Maybe it’s weak, as variable as the weather and so as emphemeral as a breeze. Abel’s love is not.”DEFY THE WORLDS jumped literally into action with this sequel with the pacing, writing and characterisation that fulfilled my desire for more from this trilogy. Noemi and Abel were left on ...

  • Ellie (faerieontheshelf)
    ↠ 4 StarsI received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.I might as well start by saying this right off the bat: I did not enjoy this one as much as the first one. It seems to have a case of the dreaded (le gasp) middle book syndrome. But, this should not be misunderstood as me saying it was bad!Abel and Noemi are just as enjoyable as ever - in fact, I really enjoyed Abel's exploration of his humanity and he remains one o...

    Once again Defy the Worlds has shot straight beyond my expectations. I'm so in love with this story and with all of its badass characters.Picking up six months after where Defy the Stars left off, Noemi is back on her home planet and Abel is travelling the worlds as a Vagabond. Fate once again brings them back together as they discover bigger and more sinister plans to the future of humans and mechs. Secrets are learned and truths exposed. Talk a...

    More like 4.5 stars.Received this through ReadersFirst in exchange for an honest review. So, in order to receive this book it pushed me to buy Defy the Stars after wanting to read it for so long. I loved Claudia Gray's Evernight series, and this series has yet to disappoint.It begins six months after the events that took place in the last book. Abel is travelling alongside Harriet and Zayan, who we met in book 1, and Noemi is on Genesis. When the...
