Murder, abductions, and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling sequel to Sara B. Larson’s acclaimed YA debut, DEFY.

Alexa remains by the newly crowned King Damian’s side as his guard, ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion’s people, despite continuing to harbor a secret love for him. However, when another threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on their newly forged allies from Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. With the fate of her nation hanging in the balance once again, will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy — before it’s too late?

About DEFY

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?

    I love the cover, very intricate artwork of a bow and arrow. Just beautiful.

  8. I love the bow and arrow done in gold, and the intricate detail to the bow with soft, muted background. It makes it stand out much more.

  9. I love the purple cover and the golden bow. Not too much the arrow though.

  10. Carolyn Valdez says:

    I love the cover, it is so beautiful. It definitely caught my eye.

  11. I love the cover for Ignite!! The colors are amazing. The bow w/just a bit of femininity, & the rosebud arrows w/the thorns depict Alexa’s personality very well!!! I would have loved to see just a small flame engulfing the rosebud to also depict Alexa’s fiery spirit, but that is just a personal preference & in no way affects how perfect the cover is. 🙂
