#WinterWishList2014 Book Feature #7

Saturday, December 07, 2013

This is a brand new segment I am starting where I feature a book a day, in the month of December, that I am looking forward to in 2014. It can be any book from any genre, from any author or publisher!

This is a great way for me to help you make you TBR pile bigger! And to share the books I cannot wait to read! Hope you enjoy!

                                                  TODAY'S FEATURE:
Title: Defy
Author: Sara B. Larson
Series: Defy #1
Publisher: Scholastic
Release Date: January 7th 2014

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 am always up for a good romance, but this one sounds EPIC! I have always had a special love for Scholastic books and I know this one is going to be amazing. And have you seen that cover? Talk about gorgeous and eye catching! I love the green and the simple imagery. I also have a soft spot for debut authors, I always love to give authors a chance, and when a book like this one comes around I know I have to read it!
Do you have this book on your wish list for 2014? Why can't you wait for it?
