    1 thought on “The Defiant

    1. If you liked The Valiant then this is a really enjoyable sequel It delivered on pretty much every aspect I wanted to see A lot of it builds off the last book and what Fallon saw towards the end, so I don t want to spoil that Otherwise, there s a rebellion brewing here and Fallon s viewed as a leader of rebels, which makes her a political liability for Caesar Her potential power also makes her a pawn in a much greater game a distraction and a bargaining chip She and her fellow gladiatrices spend [...]

    2. The Valiant was one of my favorite new YA books of 2017 The concept was fascinating imagining the existence of a training school devoted to making women into gladiatrices It felt fresh with high stakes Any predictable moments didn t bother me because the story held its own I m beginning to think this should ve been left as a standalone becauseThe Defiant didn t do anything for me In fact excited as I was to dive back into this world, the excitement slowly dwindled down as I got into the story an [...]

    3. 4.5 This series is so good I was hooked from book one with a female gladiator on the cover As soon as I started reading the first book I wanted a trilogy right away The sequel was very good but I did like the first book better but that seems to be normal in a lot of trilogies I however CANNOT wait for next year s third book to come out even though the second just came out last week This series and these characters are so entertaining I just know the third book is going to be ridiculously excitin [...]

    4. 5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2018 01 20 I adored the first book finally, a Young Adult novel I was really hyped up for that didn t disappoint me but this sequel was even better I think it s safe to say if you enjoyed The Valiant, then The Defiant will continue to impress.Warning possible spoilers for the first book if you haven t read it yet Our series protagonist, Fallon, has gone from Celtic princess to captured slave to Rome s most beloved gladiatrix, but now she s about to [...]

    5. Review from Tenacious Reader tenaciousreader 2018 04.5 5 StarsI ll be honest, I read The Valiant by Lesley Livingston pretty much on a whim last year It wasn t a book that was on my radar until after it was released, which is unusual I read a couple of glowing reviews for it for that essentially made me set my review books to the side because it sounded so good I was glad I did because it just happened to have everything I love and in just the right amounts I am very happy to tell you that The D [...]

    6.

    7. For review follow my blog shades of paperOkay, I was super excited about this book because I read The Valiant last year and really enjoyed, so I read it as soon as I managed to grab a copy.Turns out, I liked the book and I think it was a very interesting sequel, but I didn t love it as much as the first book It was slower, and the plot took a while longer to develop However, I really enjoyed knowing about Fallon and what was she going through, and of course, I loved the female friendship that [...]

The much acclaimed sequel to The Valiant started off with a bang regarding a competition between the two rival gladiator academies happening for the benefit of a bored Cleopatra Fallon and her friends battle the s, ultimately winning the reenactment and achieving the crowds approval The following day, Cai and two members of his legion appear at the academy and Fallon is reunited with her boyfriend after so many months Everything in her world seems to be going smoothly her friends, her boyfriend, [...]

    10. I really enjoyed The Valiant when I read it earlier this year and I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of The Defiant from Razorbill, even though it was past publication date which I am very grateful for This has not effected my rating and all opinions are my own But even if we re too late for rescue, we ll still be right on time for revenge The Defiant was a really great sequel and I loved the themes explored in these books Firstly, there s the kickass female gladiators gladiatrices and th [...]

    11. OMG OMG OMG When I picked up The Valiant last year I didn t expect it to be one of the favorite book EVER Now i finished the sequel and I AM OBSESSED to a point of no return We got some new characters who fast became some of my favorites We got a new OTP and I SHIP IT so much And of course let s not forget brave Fallon and her crazy adventures Go read this ASAP

    13. But even if we re too late for rescue, we ll still be right on time for revenge The first book wasn t so good in my opinion, but, the author did a better job with the sequel This was interesting than the first book, bloody and full of action and adventure, rituals The s and the Sons of Dis were a nice touch4 stars Tomorrow we would bury the dead We would throw open the Ludus Achillea gates And we would carry on Defiant, triumphant, together.

    15. Ik vond dit boek weer echt te gek Net zoals het eerste deel Het is echt een Fight like a girl boek met een hoop bad ass meiden Zeker een aanrader dus.

    16. 4 StarsA good continuation to the series I can t wait to see what next book has to offer Although I guess I have to for once since it s not out yet.

    17. Loved this Just like I loved The Valiant While there wasn t as much bloodshed as I would have liked it was still fantastic I can t wait for The Triumphant

    18. What a great sequel Ancient Rome and fierce, female gladiators and a super cute romance loved it I can t say the books are anything groundbreaking, but they re right up my alley so I was totally entertained.

    19. Not in strength are we inferior to men she said, the same our eyes, our limbs the same one common light we see, one air we breathe What then denied to us have the gods on men bestowed So good I like this series so much And I really don t know what it is Because this is not the book to pick up if you want really complex characters, unpredictable plot, political intrigue, deaths blood and violence There is all of that But it s not so deeply explored It feels sometimes like a Disney movie It s not [...]

    20. 4,5 I Would Defeat Them All Stars I had no idea where the author could take this story in the second book, after the ending in the previous one Everything was great, Fallon and her sister s Ludus were victorious, everyone was happy Wellt for long This book really surprised me It was great to see all the girls on the next mission, but so different from the previous book All I ever wanted was to follow in my sister s footsteps and join my father s royal war band Warriors, Elka Not soldiers Not mer [...]

    21. Even if we re too late for rescue, we ll still be right on time for revenge 4 Stars, or should I say swords bad pun Esmay, very bad Ever since I read The Valiant, I knew I would pick this book up as soon as it came out and let me tell you I am not dissapointed I do have to say that somethings were predictable, yet I did not find them annoying I was quite sad about some plottwists, but they were very nicely done and while I had seen it coming, I was said nonetheless What I also really enjoyed was [...]

    22. I wavered between a 2 and a 3 so I guess my rating is a 2.5.Two stars from me is a book that is okay and that pretty much sums up how I feel about this book I didn t connect with the characters, so it was hard to care when they were hurt or killed There were a lot of deaths in this one, but I was so detached from the characters that I didn t really care what happened to them The political scene was a bit confusing as well, and since that was basically the whole book, it was hard to follow The wr [...]

    23. Source Library Genre Young Adult, Historical Fantasy Rating 3.5 4 Thoughts The Defiant is the second but not last installment in author Lesley Livingston s The Valiant series They call Fallon Victrix now Victory But winning the highest honor ever bestowed upon a gladiatrix in Rome has earned Fallon deadly enemies outside the arena than she ever faced within it And it is those dearest to Fallon who will pay the price for her success Now, Fallon and her warrior sisters of Ludus Achilles Academy a [...]

    24. 3.5 5I loved The Valiant, but somehow the second book didn t impress me as much as I hoped it would The Defiant was still enjoyable and entertaining to read, but it never managed to draw me in fully The story was sound and simple and the plot was a bit too predictable at times Otherwise, I m still pleased with Livingston s world of gladiatrices and will be looking forward to the third book in the series.

    25. Review also on Christina Reads and BlogsWarning There may be spoilers for The Valiant If you have not read this book and do not wish to be spoiled, please don t read this Thank you.The Defiant is a packed, complex sequel to The Valiant While some people may like the immediate action and deception, it really put me off for most of the book and I didn t care to continue at some points I did, and I m glad in the long run, but sometimes I felt like reading faster just so I could get to the next sect [...]

    26. I ve been waiting to get my hands on The Defiant since the moment I finished The Valiant Not only does Lesley Livingston write a fantastic story but she had me totally invested in these characters and I couldn t wait to see what happened next for them Don t hate me for being slightly vague with this review I don t want to ruin this book for anyone and that means there are some things I can t say trust me, you will thank me for it The Defiant picks up shortly after The Valiant ended and life at t [...]
