The Best Case Scenario I thought that the overall storyline was interesting, at least at the beginning. Mar 05, Giselle rated it really liked it Shelves: I was expecting the bad boy type rwdwine he was actually more of the nice guy. Okay, there’s still more examples I have to show of why I hated Logan and why you should, too. I’m not done with reasons why I hated Logan, but seriously, read the above things he’s said to Rachel, done to Rachel, and thought about Rachel.
Some parts would make me roll my eyes, but it was still done very well. It felt like the h had a checklist of things that sounded good to her and just threw them in the blender: I went into this novel with low expectations, simply because so many trusted reviewers had given this a low rating, and I absolutely have to agree with them.
I get it – he’s the bad guy. Quotes have been pulled from an ARC and may be subject to change. View all 35 comments. The story is told from two points of view, Rachel and Logan, and the story belongs to both of them equally. The two of them are still perfect for each other, of course. Return to Book Page.
And the founders of this society happened to be crazy sexist too. These characters actually learn from their mistakes and do not keep repeating them. The world-building was great though I wouldn’t say it was completely redwone.
But the Commander has something up his sleeve, no matter how hard Rachel and her deemed Protector Logan try he always seems one step ahead. Themes of revenge, justice, grief, and guilt are explored in detail, and the characters are tested emotionally and physically in refiance I defiacne never to experience. And speaking of Logan and Rachel The whole scenario complex was just too much.
I love how these two developed and grew through the unexpected situations they were thrown into and discovered new things about their selves. But it goes beyond that into…almost fetishizing misogyny. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
I guess you would call this a steampunk novel set in a post-apocalyptic future world. 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 vy boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her. My only problem was that I got really confused whether I’m reading a dystopia or a steampunk.
Still he easily took a place in my heart with his really caring but also strong personality. This book was lucky I was reading it on my Kindle, because if I had a paperback copy, that would have been the point where I would have, a thrown it out the nearest window and into the street, hopefully to get run over by a car or two; b shred to a million tiny little pieces and use it for litter in a gerbil cage; c ripped it to shreds by hand, and release those shreds into the wind in a My Sister’s Keeper fashion Damn you, Kindle!
In fact, the plot moves forward by failures. You’re a finished it! This is a first in a series so I am sure more detail and concrete answers are on the way, but the omission and neglect of information often got in the way of my truly being involved in the story.
Their romance is very sweet, and like I said, no insta-love, but instead a slow and satisfying build-up.

Oct 13, Zoey Talbon rated it really liked it. This book is the epitome of action-packed, but it stull left me yawning and it was very putdownable. Also, I’ve heard other reviewers sometimes talk about “over-writing”, but I don’t think I’ve ever really appreciated what they mean until reading this book.
As the story progressed she grew on me a lot more, I liked the character that emerged, she was still head strong, but there was a fierceness about her which I admired. They cannot leave their home without said tedwine and when they turn seventeen, a man will court them and they will become a wife. Or what the bits of a novel are or where that particular phrase comes from. Major points get deducted. Want to Read saving…. View all 23 comments. Redwine expertly created her defince and the world surrounding them, making their journey easy to follow and completely unforgettable.
Rachel is so tough, but she has pain in her that fuels her on.
Tell me about the main character. Logan invents brilliant pieces of tech that might be found in a science fiction novel.

With a leader that dishes out executions if a woman dares walk through the market alone, the defiancee of the book is very dreary and distressing. Gag me with a rusty spoon. At such a young age, she does her own thing and will not allow herself to behave and look to men to save her.
