Publisher's Summary

Alexa must face enemies known and unseen in the ultimate fight for survival. The remarkable third novel in Sara B. Larson's bestselling Defy series!

At last, Alexa and King Damian are engaged to be married. But their lives are far from safe. The kingdom of Antion is under siege, and Rylan is a prisoner of the enemy. Even worse, Alexa remains at the mercy of the evil Dansiian Rafe, who controls her mind and can force Alexa to kill or harm Damian at any moment. Despite this, Alexa is determined to rescue Rylan, which soon leads her far from Damian and deep into enemy territory.

When she arrives, what awaits her is deadlier than anything she could have ever imagined: an army of black sorcerers, and a horrifying plot to destroy the world as Alexa knows it. Will she be able to gather the strength to free herself, protect the love of her life, and save the land? Will there ever be true peace?

Acclaimed author Sara B. Larson has woven a stunning, romantic, and evocative finale to the Defy trilogy, one that is sure to leave readers breathless until the very last page.

Oh the drama!

Where does Endure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Of the books I've listened to of late, this one is definitely at the top of the Good list. It had purpose, the characters were well developed and moved with the story, and (most importantly) it didn't lag. A lot of times, you have authors who are trying to stretch out their last book in a series because they used up all their plot in the first two. Not so with this book. Kudos Sarah B. Larson!

How could the performance have been better?

What was it about this book that made the narrator emphasize every third word? Literally. I'm not exaggerating. I counted. It was SO annoying that it made a great book incredibly difficult to get through. Word to the wise Rebecca Mozo...just because its a dramatic reading, doesn't mean that EVERY SINGLE sentence needs to be rife with dramatic tension and expression. Dial it down please!

Any additional comments?

To the producers of audiobooks, current and future: ask your narrators to CALM DOWN. Too many horrible and annoying narrators ruin books that would otherwise be a pleasure to listen to.

The End

This book is a great read. I love the narrators. their voices have a way of painting the story in your mind. I will truly miss the characters in the book. The story is well woven and it makes you feel real emotions. It's a book full of surprises, loss and heartbreak. And above all Love.

Voices.

It's almost perfect, but the voices just aren't what I imagined... but that's just me.

Absolutely breathtaking

I'm so sad the series is over but I love the way the fear and anticipation of something terrible happening balance out creating ultimate suspense. The final battle is an ultimate test for Alexa to see if she is strong enough and if she loves Damian enough to overpower Rafe and King Armando.

Really good listen

I really enjoyed reading about the main characters and how they both had to play a part, to be something they were not in order to find each other and their true selves. Damien and Alexa fight the odds and then fight some more. I would recommend to young adult and fantasy readers alike. Narrator was hard to listen to at first but after time went by I could hear the changes in pitch and tone and that made it better and better as the series went on.

the author did a wonderful job with the book. the ending was touching. the characters were so well developed it pulls the reader in to feel every hard won victory and loss by the characters. loved the series and hopes the author writes more in this fantasy world she created.
