"Defiant is the prequel teaser of a fantasy adventure for children aged from 9-12. But since, I'm a young at heart person, I decided to read it so I could recommend it to parents with children who love reading.
The author, Valerie Francis, is new to me and I didn’t know what to expect! What a beautiful surprise!
This series has two main characters, both aged 12 years old, in Defiant, we meet Clancy, a headstrong and brave little girl, a young warrior and future chieftain of the Aingeal clan. Clancy, her family and friends live in Donovan, where a terrible disease is getting them sick! So, she decides to search for an antidote that will lead her to the magical world of Avalon, where she might find the key to cure them. Let’s mention that Clancy has a special power, you will discover, what it is, if you follow her journey
Valerie Francis really wrote a beautiful fantasy filled with magic, witch and sorcery. I'm sure this series Nature Knights will please young readers of medieval adventures.
Note for parents, this story is nicely written, I strongly recommend it. As an adult reader of medieval adventures, I’m quite pleased to have taken the time to read Defiant and offer it to my grandchildren!
I will read, next, her first story Crossing the Rubicon and offer my recommendation." Nicole Laverdure said.
"My daughter likes this book. She says the character development is good, and the story starts slow and picks up the pace. She liked the topic and she enjoyed the differences between the good and bad characters." CP said.
