Book Description

21 Mar 2012 Significance
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Third Novel! 15 Mar 2012
By Book Passion for Life TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
You know I absolutely adore Shelly Crane's work, so I'm so please to say she doesn't let us down with her third instalment in the Significance series. Her writing is as strong as ever and Defiance is a truly heart-warming story full of emotions, joy, betrayal and sacrifice and I loved every minute of it.

This time around we see Maggie, Caleb and family in the clutches of the Virtuoso council, where they are in the presences of all the Ace families including their enemy clan; the Watson's. Maggie has to deal with the council trying to take her away from her family, so they can control her but as strong as Maggie is, she will never allow them to do it. As she starts a battle to try and change the way the council works, she also has to fight the Watson clan as they do their best efforts to harm her. Maggie knows what must be done....the Watson clan must be stopped!

I loved, loved, and loved it! Defiance is everything I could have wanted from this book and more. Shelly Crane has a gift for creating heart-pounding, intense and exciting stories and she's definitely becoming one of my favourite authors.

This time around we really get to see how evil the Watson clan are and really, they are pure evil. The tricks they have up their sleeve to try and harm Maggie is horrid and I'm really pleased they finally get their come up pence. What I loved about this book was watching all the other clans come together, most of them are scared of the repercussions from the council but with Maggie as the Visionary...really she's boss! I loved seeing her come into this role and I cannot wait to see more.

There's not much of a major cliff-hanger to Defiance but if you're a fan of this series - like me then, you will be dying for the next book Independence because I'm dying to see how it all ends and I just know Shelly will do us proud.

OMG I have already read this book and I loved it. This has a lot of different things happening to all our characters and I have to admit I was a little upset toward the end but this book just kept me hooked. This was the one which had all the bad stuff happening with a great outcome although not without consequences.I will be downloading the final instalment when I wake up as its now 2am.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story 25 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
There are good and bad points for my review on Defiance by Shelly Crane. I really wished I could only write positives but a few things bugged me about this story.
I love the story don’t get me wrong but I have an issue with how it is written. There are so many mistakes and usually I’m not picky but there are loads. For instance a lot of typos, missing words and some sentences don’t make any sense. I know some readers will find it confusing because you have to concentrate hard to understand what she’s trying to say.
I also felt this story was a little rushed. I found the use of, “rolling eyes,” and the use of the word, “Laughed,” were over used like they were there to fill gaps which made it a little boring. More creative words would have been better.
However – here come the good points!
The story line was amazing as always. I loved the first book and its drama which continues with. Shelly is really awesome at creating drama. It’s everywhere in the book. I’m in love with her characters too. Caleb is cute and handsome and so is Kyle. I was getting a good crush on Rodney and then I didn’t expect THAT to happen! Heartbroken! But then we have Gran and she is hilarious! I cannot wait to read more!
I’m giving this story a 4/5 stars. If it wasn’t for the large amount of errors it would have been 5 .
