Defy by Raine Thomas
Publisher: Iambe Books
Release date: April 30, 2012
Seventeen-year-old Tate is about to make her parents’ dreams come true. Unfortunately for her, their dreams foretell her death.
Eager to explore more of the Estilorian plane and prove her abilities, Tate goes against her parents’ wishes and leaves the area of protection surrounding her home. Her choice puts her on a deadly path…one that leaves her alone, severely injured and battling for her life.
Her possible savior arrives in the form of Zachariah, a male who has removed himself from Estilorian society for more than fifty years. Fighting an unexpected connection to Tate, he must decide whether saving her life is worth destroying his.
As Tate struggles to find a way home, she ends up drawn into a dark Mercesti plot involving multiple murders and a powerful ancient artifact. With the unpredictable Zachariah as her only source for aid, she’ll soon find out if her abilities are strong enough to help her defy her Fate
What a unique book. That is the first thing that comes to mind after reading Defy by Raine Thomas. I honestly have never read anything even remotely close to this and that is a very good thing.
The story is about Tate and her adventures outside of the Estilorian plane. Inside the plane she is protected from most dangers, but Tate was never one to sit by and watch her life go by. When one of her cousins gets the chance to try and bring forth her wings Tate follows her and that is when the trouble starts. You see there are murders outside of the plane and a conspiracy that brings an ancient artifact into play that may or may not exist. Tate gets thrown into this and she gets to truly show what she is capable off. Throw in a great mix of characters and you have yourself a wonderful and exciting high fantasy novel.
I didn’t know that this series is a sort of spin off from the authors first trilogy Daughters of Saraqael. I will tell you that I have already bought the whole series to see where everything began for these characters. Ms. Thomas has a wonderful way with words and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!
