    Julia Defiant is an amazing second novel in a thrilling YA fantasy series, and is one that fans of the genre definitely need to get their hands on A lot of series start off with a great first book, only to fall short on the following books That is definitely not the case with this one Every single aspect of the novel was fabulous and just as fantastic as the first installment I read and loved the first book, Julia Vanishes, so I came into this one with pretty high hopes I m so glad to say that it lived up to my expectations and surpassed them all There are so many wonderful aspects to this book that I know I m going to end up forgetting something, but I ll try to get as much as I can.Julia continues to be a great main character She s realistic and easy to connect with early on in the book She has lots of positive qualities smart, loyal, determined, kick ass abilities, strong, brave, and but she has plenty of flaws too I loved watching her become comfortable with her powers and her role in the crew she s a part of She grows and matures quite a bit during the story, and I liked seeing it happen I also enjoyed watching her relationship with other characters develop on various levels throughout the novel One huge thing for me is always the writing style I pref...

    You can see this full review and at Book Briefs I have been totally loving reading books in a series back to back This is the summer of the binge read for me So I decided to do that with books one and two in the Witch s Child series So this is a combined review for books one and two in the Witch s Child series by Catherine Egan.The first two books in the Witch s Child Series by Catherine Egan are Julia Vanishes and Julia Defiant The books got a beautiful new cover change for the release of the second book While I really liked the original covers, I love the new covers I am a big fan of the cover change and now I want to get both books with matching new covers BookBloggerProblems lol The Witch s Child series is a really interesting one for me, because it is one of the few series that I ended up liking the second book way, way than I liked the first book I found the first book, Julia Vanishes to be an interesting read, but I found it to be kind of confusing in a lot of places and kind of slow at the beginning The book picked up a bit as it went on, but it was only an ok read for me That was not the case at all with the second book I really enjoyed Julia Defiant The book takes place in a different location than the first book, wh...

    Thanks to Netgalley and Knopf Books for a copy of the eARC in exchange for a fair review.Julia and the gang are back, although there are some new characters and new location Wyn is still on the outs with Julia, but he is hanging around Julia is searching for Ko Dan in order to get the book out of Theo Of course, assassins are after them because they want Theo and Julia trying to keep ahead of them Also there has been changes with her ability to vanish, now she seems to disappear completely and appear in a hellish world in which the creatures seem to recognize her.What does this mean Will she be able to find Ko Dan Will she be able to save Theo I was a bit disappointed in this one, I don t know if it was the length of time between reading the first one and reading this one or just the change in location, but I couldn t connect with the characters this time around I couldn t remember who half of them were to be honest I really enjoyed the first one, but this didn t appeal to me as much....

    Catherine Egan has achieved the difficult task of writing a sequel that is not only as compelling as its predecessor, but even so Having won this novel from Goodreads, I borrowed the first book, Julia Vanishes , from the library This series is a departure from my usual genres, and I m glad that I ve given it a chance I m eagerly anticipating the third book now Julia Defiant was a mature novel, with depth and complexity just as a sequel should be An action filled, complex plot kept the story moving swiftly along, but what really stood out was the characters While they were introduced and given roles in book one, in Julia Defiant they were really fleshed out and allowed to shine Unlike most works of fiction, the characters don t fall easily into categories of good and bad, and this moral ambiguity keeps the reader guessing The world building adds another layer of intricacy as things shif...

    I must admit I did not enjoy this book as much as the first in the series With that said I am glad I read them so close together, and still plan on reading the third ASAP I never would have remembered the many characters if I had not read the two books within a week of one another This book introduces even characters, and offers at least one everyone can connect to I think what really kept this book afloat for me despite not being as great as the first is Julia herself While she was occasionally annoying and emotional as a teenage girl myself I can say that s standard but she was refreshing as a female YA lead I also love her brother to pieces.The plot in this book was complex than the original but felt like it had to many side quests braided in that three things off I liked getting insight into Julia and all the witches powers, I liked how Bianca s character d...

    This is not a stand alone novel and probably should not be read as such as I discovered while reading it as a stand alone novel I won this through Goodreads Giveaways thanks, by the way and didn t bother preceding it with the first in the series My mistake With that disclaimer, I should say that I am probably not the best person to review this book There was a lot going in this story A lot of characters, a lot of fantastical creatures ...

    thanks to Penguin Random for the ARC Gah, okay I had high hopes for this one The first book in this series started pretty slow for me, but really picked up in the end, so I was thinking we were going to follow that vibe into Julia Defiant Sadly, I had the same problem read this as I did Julia Vanishes I felt like so much of this book was just filler and nothing really progressed Until the last 50 or so pages I felt like the plot didn t move I enjoyed the ending and there were some great moments throughout, Egan s writing style certainly has matured I...
