I am super stoked to be able to take part in this awesome reveal for the book trailer for DEFY by Sara B. Larson. I loved DEFY and have been absolutely dying to read IGNITE and not just because of the way things ended in book one.
DEFY was released in January, but the paperback edition will be releasing this month on the 25th and then, on December 30th, the wait will finally be over for IGNITE. And I just so happen to think that it will be the perfect final read for 2014.
In addition to the fab trailer, in case you haven’t yet become acquainted with DEFY or IGNITE, I’ve included some information about them and the author below.
And if you’d like the chance to win a copy of DEFY in its soon-to-be-released paperback format, just scroll down to the giveaway a bit further down in the post.
I happen to love this trailer and can’t wait for you to check it out. So, without any further ado, here is…
Series: Defy #1
Author: Sara B. Larson
Release date: January 7, 2014 | Paperback edition to be released November 25, 2014
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Formats: Hardcover, paperback, audio, eBook
A lush and gorgeously written debut, packed with action, intrigue, and heart-racing romance.
Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy and serve in the king’s army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince’s guard. But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can’t prevent him from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and deep into enemy territory.
The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince, the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom she’s sworn to protect?
Murder, kidnapping, and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling sequel to Sara B. Larson’s acclaimed YA debut, DEFY.
Alexa continues to harbor a secret love for the newly crowned King Damian, yet she remains by his side as his guard and ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion’s people. However, when a new threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on the once friendly nation of Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. Once again the fate of her country hangs in the balance. Will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy — before it’s too late?
