Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.
Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him--and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.
With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y'all beg for more.

Why I'm Wishing...
I'm definitely curious about this series and will try anything by Rachel Hawkins :) But it's such a long wait!


  1. I'm honestly waiting on this because the cover is gorgeous! Also, I love Rachel Hawkins Hex Hall series and I will give anything else she writes a try!

    Great pick!
    Here's My WoW

  2. Ooohh just hearing of this for the first time and it sounds great! She is a Paladin and I love romances when two opposites that dislike each other are thrown together. Both seem to have important roles and destinies.

    My WOW

  3. I haven't seen this one before but it's unusual cover for fantasy novel. I like the sound of it. Great pick Janina :)

    Here is our WOW

  6. Oh, yes, I'm looking forward to this one, too. I didn't like the Hex Hall series, but I'm really looking forward to this one! Fantastic choice this week :)

  7. Rebel Belle sounds so cute and different. I like the blurb for this book. Come visit me as well.


  8. Great pick. Thanks for sharing :)


  9. I see the wait is long, but this sounds totally twisted. A girl as paladin with a geek to protect? That's not the usual mo, and I think it's definitvely worth a shot. Thanks for stepping by and sharing!

  10. Ha! Love the premise of a Southern belle with magical fighting powers! The knife and the pearls on the cover -- amazing. I hope you get it soon!
