One short week turned Ree McKenna’s life upside down. Not only does she have the weight of the world on her shoulders, but she still has to juggle homework, a job, and a curfew. While Ree tries to find her footing amidst the chaos, the Dark Ones and their champion are busy hunting down any humans that have a touch of the gods running through their veins. Allies have turned into foes, and enemies have become stronger.
The world is growing darker, but the passion between Ree and two irresistible guys blazes hotter. Romantic ties from a past life will threaten to break Ree away from the love of her life and will cloud her judgment. In order to follow her heart, Ree will break rules put in place by the gods, risking her life and the lives of her friends in an act of Mortal Defiance.
Please keep in mind if you haven't read Mortal Obligaton, there will be spoilers in my review. You can read my review of book 1 Mortal Obligation HERE.
Mortal Defiance starts off just mere days where Mortal Obligation left off. Now that school has resumed, Ree and her friends must balance being mankind’s only hope and making sure they got their homework done. But worse than that, Ree is having to deal with the shock of a lifetime, knowing her brother Tristen never really died, but became a Dark One. Try hiding that one from your parents! And as if that’s not enough, Paden and Roland both are vying for Ree’s love, leaving her feeling torn between the two. Yes, even when the world is days away from a possible war that could destroy the earth, a girl needs at least two guys fighting over her. Right? Am I right?
Nichole Chase is an absolute darling, and her writing is pretty awesome too! She tells a story like no other. I do believe I loved this second book more than the first. Could it be the toe-curling romance that finally takes off between a certain female and her guardian? *hmmmm?* Or was it the flirty banter between gorgeous Roland and the same said female, that kept my heart fluttering right along with Ree's? *ooooh!* Or maybe it was the nail biting, arse kickin’ action and suspense that had me on the edge of my seat? *oh yeaaaah* You get the idea right? Chase delivers an action packed, romance filled story, with a side of humor I might add *snickers*…that will leave you greedy for book 3. Trust me, you’re gonna love it!
