Books On Our Radar: Defend the Dawn by Brigid Kemmerer
I have barely read any fantasy in the last year or two, but one book I devoured was Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer, and the sequel, Defend the Dawn is finally coming and I am so excited! This book to me was fantasy-light, and was just a joy to read, it had everything I wanted, high stakes, a robinhood-esque theme of stealing from the rich to distribute to the poor, in this case an elixir to save the people from dying from a sickness, royal aristocratic drama, hidden identities, and a forbidden romance! I mean is there anything else you need?
Defend the Dawn is hitting bookstores on September 20th – get those preorder enamel pins now, and if you want a signed copy you can order from Park Books! Many many thanks to Bloomsbury YA for the advance copy!

New York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer continues her electrifying series with more intrigue, romance, and heart-stopping adventure.
The kingdom of Kandala narrowly avoided catastrophe, but the embers of revolution still simmer. While King Harristan seeks a new way to lead, Tessa and Prince Corrick attempt to foster unity between rebels and royals.
But the consuls who control the Moonflower will not back down, and Corrick realizes he must find a new source for the lifesaving Elixir. When an emissary from the neighboring kingdom of Ostriary arrives with an intriguing offer, Tessa and Corrick set out on an uncertain journey as they attempt to mend their own fractured relationship. This could be their only chance to keep the peace and bring relief to the people of Kandala, but danger strikes during the journey to Ostriary, and no one is who they claimed to be. . .
