Defiance by C. J. Redwine is rich postapocalyptic YA fantasy perfect for fans of Graceling and Tamora Pierce.
While the other girls in the walled city-state of Baalboden learn to sew and dance, Rachel Adams learns to track and hunt. While they bend like reeds to the will of their male Protectors, she uses hers for sparring practice.
When Rachel's father fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the city's brutal Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector: her father's apprentice, Logan—the boy she declared her love to and who turned her down two years before. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father's survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself.
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.

I LOVE THIS BOOK!! I totally fell in love with the Logan character! So brace and adventurous and smart! And Racheal is also very brave, beautiful, and has an attitude! I would definitely recommend this book!
I love it! Rachel is strong, brave, and beautiful. Logan is smart. Adventure, action, fanasty, romance, forest missions are my things<3
Plot inconsistencies + mix & match characters/elements from other YA titles = tedious read.
