Title: Defy (Firstborn #1)
Author: Raine Thomas
Release Date: April 30th 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.
I am so honored to be a part of Raine’s cover reveal for this book! I recently read Becoming by Raine which is not part of this series BUT does take place in the same world. Raine creates such a magical, wonderful world that I cannot wait to learn more about in this series. Is April 30th here yet?
Now let’s talk about that cover! I think it is so gorgeous but if I am being honest, all of Raine’s covers are gorgeous! The peacock feathers throughout the hair, the pretty blue eyes that seem to match the color of “Defy”, everything about it is so pretty! Let me know what you think and of course, click the title above to add it to your Goodreads shelves!
P.s. You can pre-order this book from Barnes & Noble!!!!
