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.
Oh, it was so great to read to read the end of this series! Well, to have it, and to read it, but not that it's the end of the series, because that is sad, that we won't get any more of these characters after this book! Yeah.
This book was dark. Alexa and Damian weren't together. Rylan was held captive by the bad guys. So yeah, things weren't looking good! And then Alexa gave herself up to them. Which was the only way into the country, but it still wasn't very pleasant!
Oh, the bad guy! Well, bad guys. They were just so evil! The threats, the blood drawing, the way that they treated her. Oh, and the deaths. There was a cost to every victory, even to the end. After all, it was war.
That ending was just great! Alexa beat out the compulsion, the bad guys were killed, the good guys won. Yes, lives were lost, and it sucked. But they won, and they were going to create a better world! And loved ending with a pregnancy, a new life!
Such a great ending to the series, it was so great, and I can't wait to read Sara B. Larson's next book!
