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.

    Sounds like a great book! I've never heard of this! If this were the third one I think that it's a best selling book, these books get people to read, most people like adventure and sci-fi! That's me! And this is one of the books i'm very interested in. It has lot's of tension in it. i bet people have read this so far. This is my opinion, not saying that, someone else could say the same thing.

      This is the third book in the series so I'm going to assume that most people reading this review have read the first two books. To the people deciding if they should read the third book in the series: why wouldn't you finish the series? Not finishing would be like eating only half a cookie. Why would anyone do that?!? I tell you - no one! Most of us when it comes to cookies or the final book of a series are like the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. What I thought of the book: To be honest, it was a disappointing conclusion to a series that started great. Most of the book was spent trying to build it to a climax which is not how a final book should be. It should be in the thick of the climax; not building it. What made it worse was that I wasn't engaged with the storyline or characters. Characters could die and I wouldn't care one bit. It felt like the author was giving us crumbs of a cookie not a gooey, chewy, M&M filled cookie. I could see the potential but it just didn't deliver.
