At last, Alexa and King Damian are engaged to be married. But their lives are far from safe. The kingdom of Antion is under siege, and Rylan is a prisoner of the enemy. Even worse, Alexa remains at the mercy of the evil Dansiian Rafe, who controls her mind and can force Alexa to kill or harm Damian at any moment. Despite this, Alexa is determined to rescue Rylan, which soon leads her far from Damian and deep into enemy territory.

When she arrives, what awaits her is deadlier than anything she could have ever imagined: an army of black sorcerers and a horrifying plot to destroy the world as Alexa knows it. Will she be able to gather the strength to free herself, protect the love of her life, and save the land? Will there ever be true peace?

If you've read my reviews for Defy and Ignite then you'll know my thoughts on this series so far. I have absolutely 'Endure'd' this series to the end. But I'm afraid to say I think the author ran out of ideas half way through book 2. This book is basically the synopsis. Nothing much else really happens. The evil baddie wants Alexa's blood so he can remake super soldiers. Lots of sidekicks die. Big fight at the end. HEA.

I'm won't spend a long time writing this one. I can only be reminded of Alanna and her series by Tamora Pierce which was epic. This one tried, I think, to recreate that magic and just didn't.

 If you've loved the series so far then you will enjoy this, but it wasn't for me.

She can’t remember a time when she didn’t write books—although she now uses a computer instead of a Little Mermaid notebook. Sara lives in Utah with her husband and their three children. She writes in brief snippets throughout the day (while mourning the demise of naptime) and the quiet hours when most people are sleeping. Her husband claims she should have a degree in “the art of multitasking.” When she’s not mothering or writing, you can often find her at the gym repenting for her sugar addiction.
