Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7–10—Much shorter and with less painstaking world-building than most high fantasy, this tale is a bit light on substance but full of the drama and expected tropes craved by many young readers more interested in light romance and adventure. While specific terms like elves or fairies don't appear, the glossed-over history of Princess Evelayn's land is one of royalty channeling the magical power of the kingdoms of light and darkness. Having lost her father to the light kingdom's decade-long war with dastardly King Bain of the dark land, Evelayn must face down the stereotypically malevolent and sadistic ruler when her mother's strength is also fed to the flame of battle. The day she turns 18, the young queen is allowed full access to her powers. Weaponized balls of light and her ability to channel the sun's rays complement the years of mental and physical training she has completed. A handsome young soldier visiting from the front lines soon becomes more to her than a sparring companion. Tarvin comforts the princess and accompanies her on an expedited but dangerous quest to obtain a magical boon that could catch their enemy at a disadvantage and restore the balance of Lachalonia. Plot and character development suffer from too much telling rather than showing. VERDICT Purchase where readers clamor for fantasy-light and enjoy slavering at cliffhangers.—Suzanne Gordon, Lanier High School, Sugar Hill, GA

Review

Praise for Dark Breaks the Dawn:

"With its intricate, dazzling system of magic and a vibrant cast of characters caught in a devastating conflict between forces of light and darkness, this passionate, war-torn retelling of Swan Lake is not one to be missed! You'll be spellbound from the very first lines." -- Sarah J. Maas, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series

"A breathtaking origin story of Swan Lake that unfurls with soaring beauty and a villain prince as captivating as the fearless princess." -- Kathryn Purdie, author of the Burning Glass series

* "Larson is especially effective in her portrait of Evelayn's need to summon maturity before she thought she would have to, a sweetly innocent romance underscores the bite of betrayal, and the cliffhanger ending will easily build anticipation for the second book." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This reimagination of Swan Lake features a plucky heroine, a sinister, surprise villain in the

wings, and plenty of battle action . . . a clever cliff-hanger ending will have readers demanding the sequel." -- Booklist

"Girl-power fantasy." -- Kirkus Reviews

"In this reimagining of Swan Lake, the characters deal with issues of morality and justice and the burdens of responsibility; these universal themes flourish in Larson's fantastic setting." -- VOYA

Praise for Endure:

"Readers of the previous books in the trilogy will be lining up to read the conclusion to this epic story. Readers who are looking for fantasy with strong female characters, such as Cinder in The Lunar Chronicles or Celaena Sardothien of the Throne of Glass series, will find a great new trilogy here." -- School Library Connection

"Fans will be very satisfied with this final journey." -- School Library Journal

Praise for Ignite:

"[A] fast-paced fantasy novel laced with political intrigue." -- School Library Journal

"Alexa [is]... an interesting, multilayered character, a valiant fighter with heart." -- Booklist

"Alex is so strong... The intrigue is really thick in this book, and there are secrets within plots and people." -- Jessie Plots, blogging for USA Today

Praise for Defy:

An Indie Next List Selection

"A wonderful tale of adventure, romance, and embracing your true self. Alexa is a heroine readers will love to follow!" -- Marie Lu, bestselling author of the Legend series

"Grand adventure, romance, and thrilling political intrigue." -- Booklist

"Powerful and narratively satisfying." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
