Defy the Worlds (Defy the Stars #2) Reviews
This is the second installment of Defy The Stars series and it was exhilarating! Defy The Stars was the first book I read in 2018 and absolutely fell in love. This one isn't quite as good as the first one but I still enjoyed it a lot. It was definitely a crazy ride.
The stakes has somehow gotten higher, new things and stuff (I really don't want to spoil anyone!😆) are introduced. The scientific mattets are simpified and are understanable. I was hopeful, horrified, angry, thrilled, short of breath, ...more

HOW WILL I SURVIVE TILL THE NEXT BOOK NO I AM NOT OKAY THAT ENDING WAS EVIL!

I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I might as well start by saying this right off the bat: I did not enjoy this one as much as the first one. It seems to have a case of the dreaded (le gasp) middle book syndrome. But, this should not be misunderstood as me saying it was bad!
Abel and Noemi are just as enjoyable as ever - in fact, I really enjoyed Abel's exploration of his humanity and he remains one of my favourite characters. Some additional secondary ...more
