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.
I don't normally like book covers that have been graphically enhanced, but I love this cover! Not only is the cover beautiful but it is also inkeeping with Raine Thomas' previous Daughters Of Saraqael trilogy (which is also set within the Estilorian plane). Although I love the peacock feathers and the coloured accents in Tate's hair, I wish that the symbols around her eyes had been more pronounced. Becoming, Central and Foretold all had subtle, charming symbols that weren't obvious until you had started to read the story and sometimes partially discovered their meaning, (which for me, made the covers more significant as they gradually tied directly with the story as you were reading it). I hope this is continued with Defy and the rest of the Firstborn trilogy.
If I saw this in my local book store, I would definitely pick it up to read!
