It has been two months since we left Regina. She is still on the run from DeMarco and Volpe. She has been in hiding with an outcast group but it’s time for her to head to Alaska to save Colleen. There are also rumors of a vault that has genetic samples that may stop the fertility crisis without Regina becoming a lab rat. If only Regina and Ester make it to the vault and solve the puzzle before getting caught or locking in the vault. As I read Defiance I didn’t think it really flowed as well as the last two books. The first part of the book seemed a little disjointed as Regina and Ester are trying to make their way to Alaska. There are a lot of close calls where both girls almost get caught; thankfully they had a lot of help. Now, when they make it to Alaska and Regina has to puzzle through the vault, then we had the old Regina back. But one thing I really liked is seeing that most of the country has turned into a desert since we have been in the swamps on the coasts. Along with Regina we also have Ester. You could tell that Regina does love her in her own way and protects her like she would have Colleen. But Ester seemed to be a bigger hindrance at times than she was worth. Also, Regina’s mother is back. If I didn’t like the woman before when she abandoned Regina and Colleen, I sure the heck am not impressed with her now. Defiance didn’t feel as strong of a book as Resilience or Vigilance but it was still a good story. I can’t wait to see how thing work out in Endurance. I received Defiance for free from iRead Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

Book three starts off essentially where book two ends. Time has passed, but I did not feel like there was anything that was missed or that we weren’t filled in on. In Defiance, Regina is still on the run and Coarse Face is still after her. Only this time, she also has the wrath of Volpe on her. A lot of realizations are made during this part of the story and I as we get closer to the last book in the series, I’m curious as to what the end really will be. (Of course, we were left with a cliff hanger at the end of this book, but that’s okay because book four is next on my list!) It is surprising to me who is really for Regina and who is willing to help when it comes down to it. I have been enjoying the series up to this point and cannot wait to see what comes next!

Regina Shen: Defiance is the third book the in the Regina Shen series by Lance Erlick. This series must be read in order to fully understand the storyline. These are not standalone books. In this book Regina Shen has special DNA. This DNA is believed by the federation to reverse a global fertility collapse. In this society there are no boys. Science has found a way to have children just using female DNA (which in my opinion is getting a little close to the LGBT for my taste but it does explain in minor detail how it is done). Regina is caught between Rival Federation Agents. With this going on she is forced to flee to Alaska from Virginia. She is in pursuit of something worth enough to save her sister and gain her sister’s freedom. This book in the series is so far my favorite. The characters are becoming a lot more develop. The storyline has become more detailed without being too much. The book is full of adventure. It is difficult to put into words how much the author has progressed in his writing skills. This book will take the reader to Regina’s land. It was really a great book. As previously stated this series of books does have to be read in order. This is a great series of books for people who like this genre. This book I give four out of five stars. There is a few curse words just to be warned but not many. Good job to the author I received this book from iReads book Tours for an honest review.

Lance Erlick in his new book, “Regina Shen: Defiance” Book Three in the Regina Shen series published by Finlee Augare Books continues the adventure with Regina Shen. From the back cover: Abrupt climate change melted ice caps, flooded coasts, and expanded deserts. Outcast Regina Shen is a fugitive the World Federation believes has DNA that can stop human extinction. Rival Federation agents fight over capturing Regina to gain power amidst turmoil over who will become the new World Premier. Regina has to flee from Virginia through desert and wilderness to Alaska to hunt a treasure big enough to barter for her freedom and that of her sister. Can she find allies and tools to remain free long enough to find something to trade? Does anyone remember the old “Fugitive” TV Series with David Jansen? Every week Richard Kimball was on the run as he searched for the one-armed man and it was a very exciting series. I think Mr. Erlick has given us a fast-paced thriller filled with lots of action and suspense and has re-created the tension that was the magic of that old show. The World Federation is chasing Regina all the way to Alaska because of her DNA. In the meantime Regina is trying to track down her sister. “Regina Shen: Defiance” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. As with the previous two in this series this book is going to take up all of your attention so start reading early because once you get started you will not want to put this book down until you actually finish. I am so looking forward to the next book to see where Mr. Erlick will take these characters. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from IRead Book Tours.
