A Strange Angels NovelBook - 2011
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Defiance, book 4 in the Strange Angels series, opens with a bang.
Dru is doing everything in her power to find and save her friend (oh but I want so much more) Graves from Sergej. While still dealing with the politics, training and other hassles/perks that accompany being a svetchka on the cusp of blooming.
Plus she's still trying to decrease the bad guy population.
AND figure out her feelings for Graves and Christophe.
Busy girl! But she manages to handle them all rather deftly. Gone is the wimpy whiny Dru from earlier. She is hella pissed that Sergej took Graves and will stop at almost nothing to get him back.
As much as I loathe the dreaded love triangle, I must admit Ms. St. Clair continues to handle this one rather deftly. Each has their equally strong pull with Dru.
Graves continues to be the heart of the story; even absent he is the core that keeps Dry going. (and if you want to know if, when, where, how and in what shape he shows up? I'm not telling..but to say READ IT) Christophe is her mentor, determined to hone the skills that may save her life when she faces Sergej.
The usual band of merry misfits is still around. And Dru actually gets her first female friend. I found their friendship to be quite honest and real. And it brought a nice layer to Dru we haven't seen before. And Ash? Ohhh who knew he could prove to be so complex? There is A LOT going on there, and I can't wait to see how that plays out.
This book begins with Dru acting as bait. It doesn't go as planned, and she ends up getting into a fight with some suckers. Luckily, she gets away alive and even kills one of them. For a book that begins with a lot of action, it was kind of slow overall. Stuff happened, but a lot of it just didn't feel extremely important. Also, Christophe was kind of a douche for most of it. I can't decide whether he's just kind of annoying some of the time, or if I straight out hate him but one thing's for sure: I am most definitely team Graves.
