AUTHOR: Sara B. Larson
PAGES: 336 pages (Book 2: Ignite, Book 3:Endure)
OVERALL RATING: 4/5
APPROPRIATE AGE: grades 8+
WHAT I LIKED: I liked the storyline for this book: evil king banishes magic while the protagonist has to not only hide her gender but also her magic in fear of being discovered. Of course, there is a love triangle, like most young adult novels.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: I really enjoyed Book One: Defy. It had a great storyline with a happy ever after. I was excited to be able to begin book two (Ignite) immediately, but it was very disappointing. The story started out slow, and then seemed lacking in action. Overall, book two seemed to end abruptly. I'm really hoping to come out on a positive note, after I finish book three: Endure.
