About the book: At last, Alexa and King Damian are engaged to be married. But their lives are far from safe. The kingdom of Antion is under siege, and Rylan is a prisoner of the enemy. Even worse, Alexa remains at the mercy of the evil Dansiian Rafe, who controls her mind and can force Alexa to kill or harm Damian at any moment. Despite this, Alexa is determined to rescue Rylan, which soon leads her far from Damian and deep into enemy territory.
When she arrives, what awaits her is deadlier than anything she could have ever imagined: an army of black sorcerers and a horrifying plot to destroy the world as Alexa knows it. Will she be able to gather the strength to free herself, protect the love of her life, and save the land? Will there ever be true peace?
Acclaimed author Sara B. Larson has woven a stunning, romantic, and evocative finale to the Defy trilogy that is sure to leave readers breathless until the very last page.
My review: I'm so sad this trilogy is over! I've loved all 3 of the books, the characters are fantastic, there's plenty of action, adventure, magic and even a touch of romance. These books are great!
I really loved Alexa in this one. She's so determined to help her friend that she rushes into what she knows is going to be an extremely dangerous situation for her that she may or may not make it back from. Her fiance, Prince Damian, is almost positive she won't make it back. But she goes anyway, because that's the kind of friend that she is. And, of course, she finds herself in great danger. I loved the way she uses all of her courage to fight back against the evil she finds. I love that she finds great allies that not only help her know when to fight back, but also sacrifice their own lives for her - just as she is sacrificing hers for Damian and Rylan.
The plot of this one is so full of epic adventure that there is almost always something going on to keep you wanting to read and not put the book down for anything. I loved that! I loved that it's clean and that I didn't have to worry about my daughter reading it before I had.
Such a great book! Such a great series, I hope the author writes more and fast!
I was able to borrow an e-copy of this book from my local library.
