Sequel to SAVING MARS, named to Kirkus Reviews' Best of 2012.
Jessamyn has escaped Earth with food for her starving world, but her troubles are just beginning. She must rebuild her life without Pavel, the Terran boy whose kiss haunts her. Her success is further tainted by the loss of her beloved brother. Ethan disabled the deadly lasers orbiting Mars, but this has created a fervor to re-open trade with Earth which Jess knows would be disastrous. Add into the mix a secret which could launch an interplanetary war, and Jess finds herself at the center of an intrigue where, in order to save the world she loves, she must defy it.
This book rocks my socks off! This is book 2 in the Saving Mars series and it was a beautiful follow up to the first. I just love Jessamyn in Defying because she has really grown into a strong, and brave woman. She is dealing with so many complex things at once, I found myself surprised that she just doesn't have a mini breakdown!
I found the concept of human like Marsians (what Martians call themselves!) so fun and interesting. It is a unique spin on an alien tale. This a great fast paced novel that is an emotional ride! The descriptive details are just amazing, you aren't sitting there trying to guess the scene, it comes alive in a snap! and you're just amazed at how beautiful things are.
I was very happy with how this sequel turned out, it was amazing and should be read ASAP! Cidney is a very talented writer with so much to offer us readers!
**I was given this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.**
