4 Stars: ARC Review of Ignite by Sara B. Larson #review @SaraBLarson #giveaway #ARC

Title: Ignite (Defy #2)
Author: Sara B. Larson
Publisher: Scholastic
Genre: Teen, Fantasy
Release Date: December 30th 2014
Source: Publisher for Review
Purchase: Amazon

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

Alexa continues to harbor a secret love for the newly crowned King Damian, yet she remains by his side as his guard and ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion's people. However, when a new threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on the once friendly nation of Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. Once again the fate of her country hangs in the balance. Will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy -- before it's too late?

Ignite picks up right where Defy leaves us, well, almost. It picks up about 3 months later, so you aren't trying to figure out where things are. Too many times, books leave you hanging and sometimes a year goes by in the story and you don't know where you are. 

Alexa is Alexa now, she has left behind her alter ego, Alex. She is left hiding her feelings for, now, King Damain, and is still on his guard. However, a new threat has emerged and is threatening the kingdom. It is left to Alexa to save the day, yet again.

This story still has everything from action, romance and a bit of mystery. Even though this one wasn't a 5 star review, it is still up there in my book. The only part I found lacking was still how stubborn Alexa was, but it all played out well in the end. Can't wait for the next book!

Disclaimer: *I received a copy of this book for free to review, this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.

Author of DEFY and IGNITE, the first two books of the YA fantasy trilogy published by Scholastic. Mommy of three. Lover of chocolate, desserts of all kinds, and Swedish Fish. Also good books. Represented by Josh Adams of Adams Literary.

I could be a King's Guard for sure. It would be an exciting challenge.

Christina said...

Oh, one could never know for sure. Even the strongest, bravest Guards die.

Marissa Hakala said...

I can pretty much guarantee that I would not survive.

Gabi M said...

Probably not because if I trouble getting out of bed in the morning I doubt I could be one of the Guards :)

I probably wouldn't have the skills necessary to survive as a king's guard.
