Review: Defying Mars

Defying Mars (Saving Mars, #2)

Defying Mars

By Cidney Swanson

Blurb: 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.

Series: Saving Mars by Cidney Swanson (2nd book)
My Rating: 5 stars!
I HATE when a series has an amazing start, but the rest of this series is terrible. However, in this series, the exact opposite happened; the sequel is even better than the first! If every book were as wonderful as Defying Mars,the world would be a better place and there would be no such thing as a 'reluctant reader'.

I honestly could not put this book down. When I did, it was only because I had to. Otherwise, I would have read this book straight through. It was so addicting to read! The story will have you constantly wondering, what will happen next? There were a lot of parts where I was holding my breath in anticipation. This book is not for the faint of heart!

The romance, as I predicted, was a bit more prevalent in this book than the first. In Saving Mars, ithe romance had not yet blossomed, which is definitely not a bad thing, but it was nice to read about Pavel and Jessamyn's feelings for each other in here too. I thought it was really sweet, and like that it was kept clean.

And Lucca is so deliciously evil. She is pretty much the perfect villain. Her need for control, her cold-heartedness, and the secret abouther that you learn in the book (yes, that is vague. I hate spoilers, though) made her an antagonist that I hate yet love at the same time.

Okay, I do need to say something else. This is pretty much the only indie book where I read through the whole thing and did not find a single grammar error! YAY! It annoys me so much mentally correcting books, not to mention that it takes away from the story. I din't need to do that at all here.

This is one of the best series that I have read in a long time. Just the thought of book three makes me absolutely elated!
