Defy the Worlds (Constellation #2) Reviews
This sequel is really entertaining but not as much so as the first book. Defy the Stars was one of my favorite books last year. I loved it so much that I bought the audiobook after reading the book. The dialogue was not as awesome as it was in the first book but the characters were still enjoyable. I was so excited to read it and am once again dreading the year wait for the next book. The ending set up for one hell of a next book though.
My quick and simple overall: very good but still liked the ...more
“Six months after Noemi’s departure, Abel still has to consciously steer his thoughts to other topics daily. Maybe human love is different. Maybe it’s weak, as variable as the weather and so as emphemeral as a breeze. Abel’s love is not.”
DEFY THE WORLDS jumped literally into action with this sequel with the pacing, writing and characterisation that fulfilled my desire for more from this trilogy. Noemi and Abel were left on different sides of the gate but their stories were compellin ...more
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the review copy in exchange for an honest review
I read Defy the Worlds fairly close to the first book, Defy the Stars, and I think that was a good decision. This way it was easier to remember the differing planets. I am a little conflicted on this book. There isn’t anything that I particularly disliked and I can pinpoint exactly what I do like but I am still left with a small feeling of being dissatisfied.
The book starts us off about six months after ...more

Ahhh, I'm so excited. I won an ARC from a Goodreads giveaway from Hachette books. SO excited to read this!!
I'm not crying, YOU ARE.
My allergies are bad.
I have a hair in my eye.
My contacts are irritating today.
I stubbed my toe.
Nope, I am not crying- you are crying.
Oh my stars... my heart, my poor heart. It will not ever be the same. I need book 3 NOW.

"The only greater punishment than death is to be asked to die over and over again."
As with the first book, the writing is engaging and the plot steady, never was there a dull moment.
We are again pushed to question what it means to be alive. How do we measure the value of one life versus another? Again, makes us question the notion that some lives are more worth saving. And reminds us once again that home is not necessarily a place. It's a feeling. It's the people in our lives that make us feel ...more
This is such a strong sequel to YA scifi Defy the Stars. It's action-packed, fast-paced and plot-driven space adventure with high stakes and plenty of emotional moments to make your heart feel all the feelings.
I adore characters, their arcs and relationships, but I can't dive into more details because all of it is very closely weaven with plot. I don't want to spoil anything.
It was amazing to see Noemi, Abel and their friends. They are very dear to me and I love what's the author is doing with t ...more
