Baalboden has been ravaged. The brutal Commander's whereabouts are unknown. And Rachel, grief stricken over her father's death, needs Logan more than ever. With their ragged group of survivors struggling to forge a future, it's up to Logan to become the leader they need—with Rachel by his side. Under constant threat from rival Carrington's army, who is after the device that controls the Cursed One, the group decides to abandon the ruins of their home and take their chances in the Wasteland.

But soon their problems intensify tenfold: someone—possibly inside their ranks—is sabotaging the survivors, picking them off one by one. The chaos and uncertainty of each day puts unbearable strain on Rachel and Logan, and it isn't long before they feel their love splintering. Even worse, as it becomes clear that the Commander will stop at nothing to destroy them, the band of survivors begins to question whether the price of freedom may be too great—and whether, hunted by their enemies and the murderous traitor in their midst, they can make it out of the Wasteland alive.

In this daring sequel to Defiance, with the world they once loved forever destroyed, Rachel and Logan must decide between a life on the run and standing their ground to fight.

The summary has me a little nervous for Rachel & Logan. They’ve been through so much already and I would love to see a couple who fights together for once in a series. Even so I think it sounds pretty kick-ass and this series has one VERY nasty villain!

The cover seemed very similar to Defiance at first but now that I’m looking closer, I can see a lot of detail in the background. I’m searching for clues :-)

  4. LOVE this cover. I'm excited about Deception. I entered some contest to guess the title, and I guessed Deliverance. Because her father was a courier! Yes, there also was that creepy movie with the same name. But Deception is also a TV show. I think...

  5. This sounds really good. I have to say I really like Deception's cover. Great pick!
