  • Great readAnother excellent read. I hope there's more to this series. It appears there should be. I'll be looking out for other books by Vance.


  • Next please!What a great series! Can't wait to read the next one. I hope it'll be out soon so I know what happens.


  • The stories are merging somewhat. I found the story of the marine a little drawn out and dramatic but a good story. Where is the next book?


  • Different Read on Apocalypse At first, it is difficult to know who started the nuclear exchange. About the middle of the first book, it's revealed who started it then a completely unexpected twist is brought in. Both books are excellent reads with the old saying," I didn't want to quit reading it". A good 'end of world' story with a new reason for the war and not bogged down with a lot of 'prepper' advertising for brand name 'prepper' materials.


  • Sometimes the sequel to a great book can be very difficult to follow up. This is not the case here. If i thought book one was incredible, then i was thrilled to find book two was even better.Again i found myself really disappointed that the end of the book came, and i just wanted more.John W. Vance's vast knowledge has made him a natural to write about an EMP attack, and the consequent collapse of civilisation.


  • This is a good continuation from book #1. It is a fair approximation of what the world will be looking like a few weeks after the power stops working. The story is told from 4 different perspectives, so they don't move that far ahead in each story. Still worth reading in you like this type of book.


  • The premise of the first book follows through to book two; "the once picturesque landscape has been replaced with brutality and barbarism". The "defiant ones" was what the small group of survivors called themselves. I forget now which character coined the phrase. Better development and a more interesting tale in book two. Three.pointve"Desired by all, destined for one." What is in the urn?


  • Good story, but each book reads like a single episode of a TV show. You don't reach the conclusion of what's going on in the plot. I'm still curious to see what happens, but, it's frustrating to be cut off as soon as the plot pace starts picking up. I'd classify these as a series of novellas rather than subsequent books in a series.


  • I enjoyed the first half of the book even with the grammatical errors. The second half of the book through me for a loop. The inclusion of the mystical artifact, with the first born male of the family protecting it just turned me off. With that being said, I still really like the story and I am looking forward to Vance's next book, at least now I will know what to expect from it.


  • The Defiant Unbeaten PathExcellent reading with a ruthless storyline, endless twist and turns that provokes thought of our own future if we we're place in the same life's plot. As a read will suggest to continue with this and move on to the next follow-up novel.


  • Good readI was anxious to read the second book, but would have gladly waited another month if it would have meant the book would have been proofed read. The errors were beyond bad and took away from the enjoyment of the book.


  • The Defiant: An Unbeaten Path reviewThe Defiant: An Unbeaten Path is the second book in this post apocalyptic series written by author John W. Vance. It's a good story and I sure hope there are more to be written.


  • Kind of on the fence with this one. I like it for the most part, but the whole artifact thing is kind of bothering me. Maybe it will make more sense with book 3? Guess the only way to find out is to continue the series as soon as the next book is out. And now back to some zombie reading


  • I am a fan of apocalyptic fiction, but c'mon why do we need to weave a mystical treasure hunt into this. The book was fine standing on it's own without the ancient artifact.
