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 swoops in with another suspense filled Norse ride! After reading and enjoying Protector, I couldn’t wait to read Defender and see where Allie would go next on her quest to find the pieces of her weapon! And of course now that her relationship with Tore is in full swing, I was more than ready to see their relationship unfold!
Defender picks up around where Protector left off, with Allie still in the middle of her training after healing from her almost near death experience. However, now that she knows she has a real chance of healing her mom and being at last reunited with her, she is more determined than ever to kill Knott and bring the pieces of her weapon back together at last.
This second installment was full of development after development with all new worlds. Characters you’ve been waiting to meet are revealed, and the suspense was a constant! Tore and Allie’s relationship was absolutely adorable throughout! And of course there’s the rest of the gang of protectors charged with ensuring the safety of Allie. What I would give to have myself a group of hot men at my beck and call 24/7! Sounds like a sweet deal right? And of course all of them are such gentlemen! Defender brings with it more growth of these beloved characters, and new relationships are formed that are most certainly surprising.
This book was over before I knew it, the pace was swift and left me wanting more! And that ending?! I have so many questions! So.Many. And my heart is breaking for certain characters that I won’t name. But I most definitely look forward to reading the continuation of this adventure. And I would for sure recommend you read Defender! Pick it up on Amazon on July 16th!
