Defiance (Significance, #3) by Shelly Crane

Defiance (Significance, #3)In the third installment of the Significance series, we begin with Maggie and Caleb in the clutches of a new enemy; the Virtuoso council. Not only do they have to deal with the consequences of taking the lives of the Watsons and the council attempting to take Maggie away to keep their precious Visionary safe, but they must deal with Marla as well. All are determined to undermine, control and use Caleb and Maggie's rare gifts for their own uses, some wish to destroy them entirely. Then Maggie's father and Bish are threatened but the council forbids the presense of humans. Peter and the family fight and stand beside them every step of the way to save Maggie's father, to keep Caleb and Maggie together when the corrupted council is so set on keeping them apart and to stop Marla and whatever she has up her sleeve. Then Maggie has the shock of her life when she discovers something about her real father. It may change everything for everyone. Stay tuned as the story continues.

This series keeps getting better and better! It’s amazing how Shelly keeps surprising me. You would think that with Maggie and Caleb’s relationship basically set in stone the series wouldn’t be as interesting as other books. I know there’s no one else for Maggie but Caleb and that’s one of the reasons why I adore this series so much. I absolutely love their moments together but what really caught my attention were the secondary characters. Like Maggie’s dad, brother and the rest of the Virtuoso clan. 

One thing was different with this book than with the rest of the Significance series. I didn’t finish Defiance in one sitting. I was so mad, no, I was furious with the council and the things that were happening to Maggie and her family that I had to take a breather before I smashed my iPad against the floor. I think is fantastic that Shelly’s writing evokes that kind of emotion in readers. You love these characters so much that you get angry if something bad happens to them. I can’t wait for you guys to read it! Defiance is full of surprises!
