Deception (Courier's Daughter, #2)Goodreads Synopsis:    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.

My Thoughts:

-    I have mixed feelings about this one. I wasn't sure if I'd read the third book, but I think I will.

-    For almost the whole book, I wanted Rachel to get swift kick in the butt. She needed someone to smack her and tell her to get over herself. I'm glad Quinn lectured her. It was what she needed. I'm glad Rachel was able to finally grieve.

-    I don't like Logan. I don't think I've ever really liked him. I don't know what it is, but he just doesn't seem like the leader people would rally around.

-    The stupid monologuing that Rachel and Logan do in their heads is tiresome! I understand thinking about things, but the monologues last WAY too long.

-    There was a lot of filler between the story essentials. The group traveled a lot. I'm glad the ending had a lot more going on. The ending really saved the book for me.

-    I hope the next book goes by quickly. I just want to find out what happens, so I can put this series behind me.
