Publisher's Summary

We pulled the trigger and braced ourselves for the fallout. We were ready for anything. Or so we thought. 

War revealed our greatest weaknesses, the ones inside of us that we kept hidden. It forced us to face our vulnerabilities, to overcome the battles within that threatened to hold us prisoner. 

Enemies came in all forms, but so did strength. As a united front, we were unstoppable. Our power came from each other, and our greatest weapon was about to be unleashed.

loved this series

The investigation regarding the Malones is ongoing. Cruz is crumbling on the inside, but still keeps his confident persona. One thing through this ordeal, Cruz, Hazel and the guys all are loyal to their mission and each other. It's a game of chess, revenge, trying to take charge of life, plotting and fighting. Ali Dean has another stellar sports romance.
Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas are phenomenal. They both bring depth to each character. They live the story. I can feel each moment of anguish, anger, torment, fear, throughout the story. Thank you for bringing this story to life.

Final Battle in Defiance Falls

Title: Defiance Falls: War
Author: Ali Dean
Format: Audio
Narrator: Sarah Puckett, Gregory Salinas
Genre: Romantic Suspense, YA, NA, mafia, sports (soccer)
Standalone: no, read books one and two first
Part of a Series: book three of the Defiance Falls Trilogy
POV: Hazel and Cruz
Steam Level: some but not very graphic
4.5/5

Defiance Falls War is the final book in the Defiance Falls trilogy. Action-packed and suspenseful Defiance Falls War is a great mix of waiting to build tension and see what will happen next, humor, and epic battles. There were several twists that I didn't see coming. Ali Dean is a great author. I love her mix of strong, competent female characters, athletes, friendship, and suspense.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Great ending to an amazing series

In the last book in this trilogy, Hazel, Cruz and the boys are in an all out war against the Malones to save the town! Cruz's house was burnt and his father is getting worse which takes it toll in him and threatens his relationship with Hazel. Hazel has her own issues as she becomes a target for the Malones. Through it all Hazel & Cruz stand strong and fight for their love. There is lots of action in this book and it does end with a HEA. I love the duel narration and Sarah and Gregory do an amazing job. I can't thank Ali enough for creating these charaters and letting me into their world. #Hazel&Cruz4ever. #AudioObsessionReviewer

Loved it!

This was a great third book. I just adore Cruz and his crew. Hazel is an amazing character that is both soft and fierce. The narrators do a great job with the story. I look forward to more stories from Ali Dean.

Excited to Listen to the Conclusion...

I was so excited to read the conclusion to the Defiance Falls series after all of the drama and action and manipulation throughout the series, but unfortunately it lacked some of the umpf found in the previous two books. There was still a lot happening in the book and it wrapped up in a pretty package with a HEA but I felt it lacked some of the excitement I felt in the previous book. I continued to like Cruz, and overall I liked Hazel, and Hazel's cousins were always good for a laugh throughout the book. I don't always expect my books to be 100 percent realistic because I read to escape reality so if they veer off a little that doesn't always bother me, however, I don't feel like this type of a story line is representative of a typical high school experience or high school aged kids, but again this didn't necessarily bother me as I read for fun. I did find the story to be overall enjoyable.

Sarah Puckett did a phenomenal job as Hazel. She is one of my top narrators to listen to. I enjoyed the dual POV narration added in book two and three with Gregory Salinas as Cruz. He also did a really good job and made the book highly enjoyable to listen to. I would definitely like to listen to more of their work. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Great story!💜

In spite of my major book faux pas, (I read book 3 first), I really enjoyed this story.
I feel that even without reading the first two books, I had a good understanding of what led them to the events in this book. Great storyline and I loved the characters.
The narration was absolutely perfect!! Well done!
I recommend this book!

Defiance Falls War

This was the perfect ending to an amazing series. It had a little bit of soccer mixed in with a whole lot of danger and suspense. It was an intense rollercoaster ride with lots of twists and turns. Ali Dean has so many wonderful stories and her books never disappoint. I know I am always in for a real treat whenever I start listening or reading one of her books. Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas both did an awesome job bringing this series to life.

Great ending

I really enjoyed these books. The characters were quite complex for their age. I think what done it for me was the performance. Both Sarah and Gregory work so well together the voices compliment each other and they capture the characters very very well.

Another wonderful YA series

Ali Dean writes detailed books and her stories are full of emotions and actions that pull you into the story and consume your every minute, leaving wanting to know what will happen next. Her high school characters are very mature and take life on trying to make it better. All of the characters meld together showcasing character, life, compassion and struggles that are overcome. Wonderful performance from both Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas. Really enjoying this series. Audiobook Obsession Reviewer 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧

Perfect conclusion to the series!

Hazel and Cruz have started a war, not exactly what they were wanting but this is what they've gotten.

The crew is ready, the plans are in place, and all the back up plans are set up and ready to go. They have prepared this, but the turn of events is more than even they could've imagined. The new questions that arise during this book kept me on the edge of my seat whispering to myself "what the heck, what happened?"

I was sucked in from books 1 and 2 so book 3 was a very quick read. I couldn't get enough I had to know how it played out and the story did not disappoint. I loved it. The secondary characters and all of their lives and the bond between the whole crew, I craved more. I loved the dynamic between the crew and the acceptance of each other and the closeness that they all had with each other. The revelations were well played out and the heartstrings were definitely tugged. Ali Dean did a phenomenal job with this series!

I will say this again and again I love Gregory Salinas' voice and his performances! He is one of those narrators that once I see his name I'm getting the book! Sarah Puckett is so good with her emotions as I've said before and she did a great job once again as in the first two books.

Great conclusion to the trilogy

This is not a stand alone story. Start with the first book in the trilogy (Defiance Falls). This installment had more relationship drama than action compared to the two prior books in the series, but it does wrap up the story nicely.

You've probably already listened to the first two books and already know that Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas are a fabulous narration team. They're a big part of why I liked the story so much and I highly recommend the audio version.

Amazing ending to the series!

The third book of this trilogy had me on the edge of my seat! Picking up right where we left off, Hazel and Cruz are on a mission to keep their families together and the town safe. But life is never that easy. There are still struggles between the families and secrets are plenty. Hazel is still strong willed and competent, loving her sass and ability to stay on track with her dreams despite the craziness. Cruz is an incredible character, dealing with the company, his schooling, his dreams and his dad. But what I really enjoyed with this book is the compassionate way Ali Dean introduces the struggles of dementia. It's a fantastic series, exciting, action packed, romantic and addictive.

Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas finish out the series as Hazel and Cruz. Their narration is impeccable. Each nuance and inflection led to me feeling the characters emotions. I enjoyed this team and hope to hear them together again!
