    Sara Larson What have you done to me???? You are KILLINGGGGG ME That ending no THAT WHOLE BOOK BLEW ME AWAY There is no words to express the full depth of my love for this book But I'm kicking myself for reading this so early because now I'll have to wait even longer for the third book AHHHHH But it was worth it look at me after reading IGNITE 5 Blazing Stars IGNITE was amazing absolutely AMAZING I mean WOW there really are no words to put my feelings into check Oh it was powerful and beautiful and showed that love can conuer all I was moved by this story It was like an invisible hand was guiding my feelings and emotions string them along and spinning them so fast I could hardly keep up It was breathtaking and gaspful and oh so dam painful but by the end it was utterly blissfulSara Larson packs a powerful punch in this utterly hypnotic second installment in the DEFY series The writing was just as alluring and sweeping as the first time around The world building unfolded nicely and evenly flowed into the second book The action and adventure just kept coming with just the right amount of breaks to keeps us entertained yet gave us a little breathing room to interrupt what we just read The plot had me spinning in every direction as the twist and turns just kept coming and had me in amazement as they unfolded into their pure awesomeness THE PLOT Alexa has saved her kingdom from destruction by their own vicious king She defeated the vile and deadly black sorcerer in order to save her people and the ones she loves She helped bring peace and freedom to her people and put the most amazing king any kingdom could have on the throne But it all came at a price and the cost for that victory was high and all Alexa's sacrifices will forever be branded into her heart and soul She battled with all her might to achieve that tranuility but it's about to be threatened againThe peacefulness the kingdom of Antion has come to know is about to come to an end Their comfort and security is about to be breached And again Alex must step up and show her loyalties by defending her kingdom and the king she would give her life for But their is something sinister at work then anything they've ever experienced And many innocents may suffer casualties because their kingdom is on the brink of war againBut the battle that Alex wages with herself is what weighs her down Her love for her king comes rushing to the surface every time he's around Feelings she knows she shouldn't feel and fought so hard to keep buried since he claimed his rightful place on the throne But as every passing day comes so do her feelings threatening to take over threatening to take what is hers threatening to claim what has been given to her But that is something she cannot allow to happen She is unfit to be ueen She is just his scared guarded burned and ruined But King Damion feels differently and his love has never wavered and is a constant reminder of what she yearns for but is forbiddenAlex will have to put all her reservations and feelings aside when threats from every direction arise They are unsure of who is the enemy and who is ally But whatever power is running rampant within their kingdom it is unknown and very powerful And has the potential to bring their kingdom to it's knees if not stopped Alex will have to rely on herself and her friends if she as any chance of locating this threat and ending them before their kingdom falls under the deadly clutches of the enemyAHHH that was just beautiful It stole my breath away with every page and had me enchanted by it's beauty Before I started this series I was sure I wasn't going to like it as much as I hoped But the second I started reading and got to know Alex and her challenges and her fierce unwavering strength and the worldbuilding it was built around I just knew this story was going to steal my heart away And steal it it didOverall IGNITE blew me away and had me on my toes the entire book screaming for just one page I love these characters and the world setting and the strong fierce demeanor they carry along with the compassionate yet deadly way about them The writing was swift and engaging and totally addicting The plot was full of depth and development and the overall feel of the book took me back to the beginning and made me remember why I love this series so much Entering the first page was like I never even left I'll be in dire anticipation until book 3 releases and blows me away even then this one NOTE I received a physical ARC from Scholastic Press for reviewing purposes All opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced in any way

    Review posted on The Eater of Books blogIgnite by Sara B LarsonBook Two of the Defy seriesPublisher Scholastic Publication Date December 30 2014Rating 4 starsSource ARC sent by the publisherSummary from GoodreadsMurder kidnapping and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling seuel to Sara B Larson's acclaimed YA debut DEFYAlexa 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?What I LikedI know I gave this book and Defy the same rating but this one is definitely better than the first book and I mean that nicely not snidely I liked Defy a lot but I wanted from the story and less from the romance One reason why I loved Ignite as much as I do is because the romance is much clear cut thank GodIn Ignite a new threat has arrived Blevon seems to be threatening Antion burning villages and sending parties to attack the king Meanwhile a beautiful noblewoman named Vera has been given refuge at Antion someone much suited for King Damian But Alexa knows that Vera has a secret motive to seduce the king just like she knows that Blevon can't be behind the attacks someone much powerful must be manipulating the country But how many players are in the game and how many threats can Alexa uncover?Larson up the ante in this book putting Antion and Blevon at odds Everyone in Antion wants to go to war with Blevon but Damian and Alexa don't believe that Blevon is at fault perhaps a black sorcerer is All the while Damian is falling into the web of Vera who seems to have power of her own or is Damian just that captivated by her? Not to mention that one of the royals is held for ransom and by a very powerful enemy who wants Alexa in exchange for the royalPhew Lots of crazy going on Plenty of deceit ransom murder angst heartbreak and action I read this book in two sittings only getting up for lunch and things and it went by really uickly The plot is very fast paced and interesting The romance let me talk about that for a bit It might seem like the romance is all sorts of twisted right? Damian Alexa and Rylan were locked in some sort of weird love triangle in Defy but no longer Personally I didn't think it was much of a love triangle at all to me Damian always seemed to have Alexa's heartBut then there's the matter of Vera seducing Damian in this book pshh We can deduce that this is a plot twist of a sort with no real feelings involved I'm all for Alexa and Damian in this book and series though I don't mind Rylan as much as I did in Defy hate Vera though The romance between Damian and Alexa is very angry and passionate and raw and sweet all at once loveI like Alexa in this book She continues to show her toughness her strength her grit but she also breaks down a little and shows a softer side To Damian whom she really loves but she pushes him away thinking of what's best for the kingdom To Jax Damian's little brother who wants to learn to be as brave as she To her friends and even those who aren't her friends I like that Larson really spearheaded the issue of Alexa being a female in the King's guard the author brings this up a lot which makes the issue authentic and plausibleI really like Damian though sometimes I find it hard to believe that he is the King He seems and acts too young sometimes not in an immature way but in a well young way However I so want my own Damian Is that too much to ask for?The book ends on an okay note though there is definitely room for another novel It's not a cliffhanger not uite but there NEEDS to be to the story to resolve the conflict at the end that wan't uite wrapped up The book has a bit of a bittersweetness is that a word? Should be to it but not to the point where you like OMG THIS SUCKS Just book three There needs to be a book threeWhat I Did Not LikeI can't think of anything specific that I didn't like I wish the author could have included just a little background of the events that happened in book one? Only because I really could not remember many things For example Alexa's parents their death this comes up again in Ignite and I wish I had remembered from Defy Of course this could just be meWould I Recommend ItIf you read book one you MUST read book two It gets better in book two take that as you may If the romance bothered you in book one relax it clears up in book two in a really obvious way If the fantasy bothered you then keep reading because things get rocky between countries Basically it wouldn't be a bad idea to keep reading this series whether you liked book one or notRating4 stars I really hope there is a book three because this series just CAN'T END YET I mean it could but I feel like there is a much fulfilling ending to come so everyone cross your fingers for a book three announcement

    Ignite this was THE book of 2015 for me As soon as I finished Defy I began a count down for this one and waited and waited Only now I'm stuck in a similar situation again Ignite was even better than Defy was which is really saying something and I'm not entirely sure I can comprehend the awesome I just read Regardless all I know is the rest of 2015 has some insanely high standards to live up to because I'm really not sure it gets much better than thisHigh fantasy is my favorite and will always remain so However Sara B Larson writes her own special breed of high fantasy that blows the socks off of basically everything else I've read lately I love the intricacies of the plot and the subtle romance that plays such a large roleThe everything about Ignite was beyond awesome I loved how the plot from book one only fed into this one and was made even awesome Readers really get to learn about the world in Ignite and I loved that This one answers as many uestions as it asks however And I am really eager for most of those answersThe stakes are high in this one and it really takes off at full speed I read straight through without putting it down for a moment Ignite is a book that reminds me why I love YA and those with strong heroines Alexa holds her own and I love that we see her weakness in this one It only serves to make her stronger Larson's sopho novel was even better than her first I have all the feels and I think Ignite broke me It was just so perfect and everything that a book 2 in a trilogy should be Hitting book 2 right on the head speaks so much for Larson's talent and I cannot wait to see what other amazing things she does in the future Alright I'm shutting up now If you need me I'll be over here rambling some dying for book 3

    Original Review found at wwwawesomebooknutsblogspotcomsigh Such a GREAT series so far I'm loving it I think I am going to have to add Sara B Larson to my list of favorite authors I was blown away by Defy which is the first book in this series and this second book is no different If you're looking for an adventure with swoon worthy romance this you should definitely check this serious out LOVING IT I did have issues with some things in this book which made me give it a 4 instead of a 5 but we'll get to that laterI really liked that there wasn't a lot of missing time in the beginning of book 2 we start off basically where book 1 left us

    Let me start this review off by pointing something vital outI HATED Lady Vera I visualized throttling her every page since I discovered her literary existence Right just needed to get that off of my chestThis book was such a fast and fun read I read it until 2 am yup one of those books and picked it up first thing when I woke up I practically slept with it I didn't wanna put if downIt starts out with Alexa being her typical stubborn self convincing herself that she isn't good enough for Damian can somebody say dramatic much?? and thus crushing Damian's heart in the process I just kept seeing him turn these big beautiful blue 3 alliteration points to me puppy dog eyes on her not that he did he put up his mask of indifference but a girl can dreamThen Damian is attacked for reals this time not something he staged But right before the assassination attempt went off Lady Vera Crack Head probably not her last name walked into the room and charmed the hair off of everyones' head except for Alexa's and someone elsemaybemaybe notyou find out for yourself stop making me do everything for you xDAll you really need to know are these key things Take note Grab that pen behind your ear and jot this downJax is the cutest little boyDamian has the biggest heartand blue eyesand muscles what?Alexa can kick some serious behindRylan may be jealous because of reasonsTanoori has a crush But who you ask? Some dude shrugsEljin likes picnicsexcept when he doesn't show up that isVera though she is a ginger like me is forcing it uite literallyRafe I don't know who you are but I will find you and I will kill youThe only thing I didn't like about this book was what I've been WISHING to happen since Defy Can you guess? Lemme tell you close your eyes and picture this Damian and Alexa face off in a sword fight It may sound weird but I'd really enjoy that I think I may get my wish in the next book ;Happy Reading

    Hey Book Peeps So this is my first reread of this series but you are probably wondering why I started in the middle This was because I was using this book to complete my District Task in The Hunger Games Reading Challenge that I am a part of The task was to read a book with an arrow on the cover and this fit the bill I was happy though that this challenge got me to re read part of this series because it really is soooooo good and why I bumped it from my 45 star rating to a full 5I can't impress upon you how much of a badass Alexa Hollen is I just can't This girl has gone through the gauntlet and then some and she still comes through I can't tell you how many times characters in this installment ask themselves and others whether Alexa is a sorceress or not They just can't believe that just sheer will and determination are all that drives this human woman to do the impossibleEver since I started to incorporate audio books in my reading routine I've always wanted to include this series as one I would like to try and listen to I am so glad I did because the narration was fantastic and I really felt that Rebeeca Mozo voiced Alexa perfectly Listening to this story in this format really added to the feel of the overall story and that is why I bumped up the star rating well I can't wait to be able to listen to the first and the last book in the series via this format as wellLet me know what y'all think about this book if you've read it If you haven't started this series then you need to get going cause your missing out big time Happy Reading Jo This is closer to a 45 for me just cause the beginning was a bit slow but otherwise the ending was awesome and once again proving to me that Alexa is a complete badass
