Title: Defy ( Defy #1 )
Author: Sara B. Larson
Expected publication: January 7th 2014 by Scholastic Press
Goodreads: 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?
Thoughts: One i am all for women kicking ass! and second i love Fantasy. The story just really seems down my ally and come on lets face it that summery just looks like it’s gonna be one freaking epic story. I can already tell i am gonna like this book a lot. It makes me think of what if. What if i was disguised as a men and fight in a army? and what if people found out? Honesty i wouldn’t know what i would do but freak out..because well i would be far from a kick ass and get myself killed. The story kind of reminds of Disney’s Mulan and i just love that movie. I think the cover of the book is perfectly simple. I am all for less is more. Overall i can’t freaking wait for this book and i hope it is as good as it sounds. Keeping my fingers crossed that it is fan-girl worthy. What do you guys think? post up your WoW 🙂
I just really feel like this gif is perfect for this kind of moment.
