The war for Acktar has begun.
With his betrayal revealed, former Blade Leith Torren flees into the Sheered Rock Hills, pursued by King Respen’s vengeful Blades.
Left behind at Nalgar Castle, Renna Faythe tries to find her purpose, yet that purpose isn’t what she expected.
Brandi Faythe has been torn from her sister, and that isn’t all right. If Leith can’t rescue Renna, Brandi will take matters into her own hands.
War demands sacrifice. Courage falters. Who will find the strength to defy King Respen?
Acktar rests on one hope:
The Leader is ready.
Defy starts off right where Deny ends. This time, instead of opening with Leith’s POV (which usually consists of him getting injured in some way *looks around suspiciously*), we get to get inside of Brandi’s head, which I found very interesting. *smirks a little and chuckles*
This book starts out with each of the characters dealing with the ending of Deny. Brandi is furious at Leith, Renna is courageous (she’s pretty awesome in this book, by the way), and Leith is troubled. Plus, our favorite villainous king is plotting something villainous (go figure). Ya know. Just in case there wasn’t enough stress already.
Our beloved characters grow a whole lot in this book, and I found their developments fascinating to read about. I especially loved watching Renna’s development. (Hurry! Go read the book so we can talk about it!)
Guys, we get to see Eagle Heights! :D I loved it so much. It was really cool seeing how Jamie and Brandi responded to it all. And the Rebel Leader! *freaks out* That part was so cool! :D Just you wait, dearies, just you wait. *smirks*
AND THE ENDING. My goodness. Lemme just say that, like the previous two, Tricia writes non-stop action till the very end. And y’all know what that means. *nods* You won’t be able to put it down. *smiles evilly*
