Review: Defiance(Significance #3) by Shelly Crane

Defiance (Significance, #3)

Publication Date
March 8th


Available At

In the third installment of the Significance series, we begin with Maggie and Caleb in the clutches of a new enemy; the Virtuoso council. Not only do they have to deal with consequences of taking the lives of the Watsons and the council attempting to take Maggie away to keep their precious Visionary safe, but they must deal Marla as well. All are determined to undermine, control and use Caleb and Maggie's rare gifts for their own uses, some wish to destroy them entirely. Then Maggie's father and Bish are threatened but the council forbids the presence of humans. Peter and the family fight and stand beside them every step of the way to save Maggie's father, to keep Caleb and Maggie together when the corrupted council is so set on keeping them apart and to stop Marla and whatever she has up her sleeve. Then Maggie has the shock of her life when she discovers something about her real father. It may change everything for everyone. Stay tunes as the story continues.

Genre: YA Paranormal Romance/Fantasy Romance
Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars!

I have loved the Significance series from the get-go, easily devouring each book as it has been released. Defiance was not an exception, and in my opinion, it was the best one!

The evolution of each character as an individual and as a whole(meaning the family) sets Defiance above the others in this series. We get to see them act as a unit, being loyal and fighting for what they know is right. They have their faults, but they are within the realm of being the perfect family. Something, I think, that every family strives towards. As readers, we often read about relationships that are hot and cold, the two characters pulling and pushing. I love the fact that Maggie and Caleb have been such a strong couple since the very beginning. In Defiance, their relationship is the rock that grounds their family and many of the other Aces present at the meeting. They trust in each other, they are truthful to one another and their love shines through every action that they take. Theirs is a relationship that puts a smile on your face, warms your belly and flutters your heart.
In Defiance, things happen that I have been expecting from the very beginning and then there were things that completely shocked me. This is by far the most emotional installment of the Significance series, so have your tissues ready. Defiance is fast-paced, never a dull moment as things are revealed. I was never left with the feeling of lacking. The Visionary aspect of the story gets some more light and I found it completely entrancing.
This is a series that shouldn't be overlooked. Shelly Crane has the ability to draw in her readers as she takes them on an incredible, captivating journey. Recommended to readers that love a sweet, titillating romance that will sweep you away, keep you entertained and provide new, refreshing paranormal aspects. Defiance, along with the first two books, are appropriate for younger readers, but also something that readers of any age will enjoy.
