Where do I begin with this book? First off, let me say that I think one of the saving graces for me here was that I listened to the audio book. Rebecca Mozo has this seductive, smooth voice that just brings Alexa's character to life for me. She's one of those narrators who makes me want to seek out ...

Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Scholastic! Where oh where did this story go wrong? It had everything that a good story should. Wars being waged, girls being kickass soldiers, sorcerers, loyalty, honor, revenge, and betrayal! And it started off...

It’s not a secret I was eagerly waiting for Defy, after all I shared my excitement with you in one of my rare WOW posts. Even when reviews with low ratings started to pile up, they could not dampen my enthusiasm. I mean: ya fantasy about kick-ass heroine who is masquerading as a boy? Bring it on! ...
