DEFY, by Sara B. Larson


The story: Alexa has been hiding behind the mask of a boy for years. Only her twin brother knows the truth, but when Marcel is killed in a raid, she’s left alone, the only girl in a team of men assigned to guard the prince. Even worse, Damian turns out to be not nearly as arrogant and shallow as she’d thought, and Alexa finds herself falling for the man whose life she’s sworn to protect.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: While some have compared this to Mulan (and there is that “disguised as a boy” factor), this is more of an action-packed romance novel, rather than a fantasy with a lot of action. Either way! I like ’em both.
