Allie Rydell left her life behind to protect the world from the Goddess of Night. But after weeks of training, hunting, and learning to use the life-giving power that inexplicably chose her, saving Midgard seems more impossible than ever. Nott’s followers have eyes across the realms, and they’re determined to collect the bounty on Allie’s soul. And the closer Allie and her protectors get to the pieces of the immortal weapon that could save them all, the more destruction Nott manages to unleash—not only on the world Allie loves, but on the friends she’d give her life to save.
Darkness is coming. And this time, it won’t leave any survivors.
'Defender' was a fantastic, exciting, action-packed sequel to 'Protector'. We pick up right where book one left off. I loved following along as Allie and the gang try to recover more pieces of the Gud Morder in order to defeat wicked Nott and save Midgard. And let me tell you, I love this group of characters. I could easily hang out with them on a boring day, just playing cards at home drinking hot cocoa in my PJs. But there's not much sitting around for this crew. Instead of downtime, we get thrust into action, suspense, and death-defying moments. There was one moment in particular (which you will recognize when you get there), that I was like "Nooooo!" But I hung in there, loving the story and biting my fingernails at the same time, until the very end. And that ending. Just wow! I have so many theories! But let's also remember it's not just all action all the time. We get romance, friendship, drama (don't all families have drama?), dragons, twists, turns, and wonderful character development. I absolutely love this series and cannot wait for the next book, 'Redeemer.'
