Waiting on Wednesday (#79): Ignite by Sara B. Larson


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Ignite by Sara B. Larson
Book Two of the Defy series
Publisher: Scholastic
Publication: January 6, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

Murder, abductions, and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling sequel to Sara B. Larson's acclaimed YA debut, DEFY.

Alexa remains by the newly crowned King Damian’s side as his guard, ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion's people, despite continuing to harbor a secret love for him. However, when another threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on their newly forged allies from Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. With the fate of her nation hanging in the balance once again, will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy -- before it's too late?



I really enjoyed the first book, Defy! Read my review, if you're interested. I cannot wait to read this (gorgeous and very purple) sequel!

  1. Great choice! I haven't read Defy though I have seen it around the blogosphere a lot so it must be pretty good. I may have to read it before this one comes out!

    1. I think it's great! A wonderful fantasy read, despite the possible love triangle. Good choice, Krystianna!

  2. Ooh, I need to read Defy (though I'm a little scared of the love triangle in it, haha). But I do love the purple, too! Thanks for sharing Alyssa!

    Here's my WOW at Bookmunchies (:

    1. The love triangle IS intimidating! I'm trying not to think about it too much. This is, after all, only a duology!

  4. I don't think I'll end up reading Defy unless after you read this one you tell me it's awesome and an "Alyssa pushes" book! But I love the very purple cover and how it matches the first one with the continued use of weapons!

    1. I'll definitely let you know if these is a series to follow, Pili! I liked Defy, but it all depends on how the love triangle is resolved...

  5. Everyone raved about the first book of this series and that makes me want to read it too. I agree the cover is so pretty and I love it when they match!

  10. I'll probably be skipping this one. Defy was my first eARC, my first book read in 2014, and my first 1-star of the year. ;)
