Summary

Bloomsbury presents Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer, read by Christopher Ragland and Lexie McDougall.

A spark of rebellion is all it takes to defy the night.

In a kingdom where sickness stalks the streets and only the richest can afford a cure, King Harristan and his brother, Prince Corrick , are forced to rule with an iron fist.

Tessa Cade is a masked outlaw marked for death, but she likes it that way. Together with the mysterious, handsome Weston, she robs from the rich to help the poor, distributing food and medicine to those who need it most.

As it becomes clear that the only way to save her people is to assassinate the king, Tessa must face a deadly mission that will take her to the dark heart of the kingdom...and force her to work with the very people she intended to destroy.

From New York Times best-selling author Brigid Kemmerer comes a brand-new blockbuster fantasy series about a corrupt kingdom, a star-crossed romance and a girl who will do anything for justice.

Defy the Night - Review

After starting this book back in August after having won an advanced reader copy. I can finally say I have finished another fantasy masterpiece from Brigid Kemmerer!

I loved everything about this story from the plot to the characters. With many twists and turns a Robin Hood vibe it was just perfect!

Highly recommend and so looking forward to the next installment! ❤️
