Some things never die. Hope. Heroes. Defiance.
Things take a strange turn for Dulcea, the elven enchantress turned war heroine and Dragonmistress, when a countryman’s betrayal lands her in enemy hands.
As she awaits her execution, a stranger with mysterious powers offers her another chance at life. Will she die here or risk what sinister fate he has in store for her?
Can Dulcea reclaim her rightful place and lead her army once more? Or does Krath, the man who travels the Realm of the Dead as one of its own, prove to be the obstacle that fells her rebellion?
… Or will this immortal vampire warrior turn out to be the best chance she has of defying the ancient evil arising in the west?
Hmmm.. where do I begin? This book wasn’t what I was expecting after reading the blurb. It had a slow start, but quickly picked up.
Immortal Defiance is a great start to a new series by Laura Maybrooke. It starts with Dulcea, the elven queen and leader of the rebellion being kidnapped and threatened with death, until Krath saves her. I can’t wait to see where this relationship will go in the next book!
I loved the characters, and the world the author created is so in-depth and detailed. It was different and fresh. This is a story about rebellion and betrayal. It is written with flashbacks, that explained the rebellion and what lead to Dulcea’s kidnapping. Very interesting twists and turns that I dont want to spoil! I recommend it!
“I live in my own little world. But it’s ok, they know me here.” (Who besides me has this fridge magnet; raise your hand!)
That’s sometimes what it feels like. Who says stories aren’t real? I live in the land of the Midnight Sun and Polar Nights, together with my husband and daughter, and a cast of fantasy characters running around in my head. It’s busy here. Care to stay and chat a while?
Laura Maybrooke is an 80s’ child, who works too much and writes too little, but who’ll never say no to a thrilling romance, a high fantasy adventure, or a cookbook full of delicious treats she’d like to bake one day.
