Endure, by Sara Larson

Alex is still stuck under Rafe's order of protecting him. Fearing this will hurt Damien somehow, she tries all she can to avoid Rafe, hoping he dies to end his command. With war coming lose, Andion needs to prepare. As Damien readies his troops, Alex sets out to free Rylan from the enemy. As Alex sets foot onto enemy territory, she learns secrets she would otherwise have not known.

I think Endure, by Sara Larson, made an amazing end  to this trilogy. Though I loved this book, there were many events I was upset about. But in all, I'm sure the lovers of the previous two books in the series will want to check out this final story. This book is an adventure/fantasy book for teens. I honestly think this book is the same story line (or similar) to the books by Sarah Mass, Victoria Aveyard, etc. Any lovers of those books should definitely read this series.

Ignite, by Sara Larson


When twins Vera and Rafe visit the castle, Alexa notices they have something up their sleeve. This theory is confirmed when Rafe takes Jax hostage, and Vera has control over the minds of Damien and the Antonian army. But things don't add up when Blevonese soldiers start attacking. Alexa is stuck between saving Jax, and staying to help Damien. But she is willing to risk her life to save the people she loves.

I think this was the perfect sequel to Defy.  There is a cliffhanger at the end though, which is okay with some, but not others. Ignite, by Sara Larson, is the perfect transition to the next book, Endure. I feel that anyone who read/loved the first book should definitely read Ignite, and will also love it. This book, like Defy, is an adventure/fantasy based book for all readers who love this sort of genre.
