Seventeen-year-old Tate is about to make her parents’ dreams come true. Unfortunately for her, their dreams foretell her death.
Eager to explore more of the Estilorian plane and prove her abilities, Tate goes against her parents’ wishes and leaves the area of protection surrounding her home. Her choice puts her on a deadly path…one that leaves her alone, severely injured and battling for her life.
Her possible savior arrives in the form of Zachariah, a male who has removed himself from Estilorian society for more than fifty years. Fighting an unexpected connection to Tate, he must decide whether saving her life is worth destroying his.
As Tate struggles to find a way home, she ends up drawn into a dark Mercesti plot involving multiple murders and a powerful ancient artifact. With the unpredictable Zachariah as her only source for aid, she’ll soon find out if her abilities are strong enough to help her defy her Fate.

Quote Battle for Defy
Tate VS Zachariah
Tate: “You probably think I’m an idiot for getting myself into this mess.”
Zachariah: “You have a highly developed sense of the dramatic.”
Tate: “Drama? Oh, you want drama? I have no idea where I am. I have no clothes besides the ones I’m wearing, which are filthy and essentially rags. I have no food, no map, no healing supplies…and to top it all off, I’ve lost my mind and I’m now communicating with a hallucination.”
Zachariah: “You really must learn to control your emotions.”
Tate: “Oh, great. Not only do I have a breakdown, but I have some uncaring stranger around to witness it. Could this possibly be any worse?”
Zachariah: “Having a rough time of it, are you?”
Tate: “It’s called sarcasm, Sparky. Haven’t you ever heard of it?”
Zachariah: “I know very well what sarcasm is, Beautiful.”
Tate: “You’re funny, Sparky. Heaven knows why I like you, but I sure do… I trusted you to do what you said you would.”
Zachariah: “Trust me when I say that you should never trust me, Beautiful.”
