Here at Atom, we're seriously excited about the arrival of a brand new coming-of-age fantasy series this autumn (have you seen that cover? We love).

On 6th September we publish Defiance, Book One in The Courier's Daughter Trilogy. Packed with dragons, danger and desire, it's an utterly addictive blend of fantasy and dystopia, perfect if you like books by Christopher Paolini or Kristin Cashore.

Visit the author's website here or read on for the complete synopsis. And watch this space because at the beginning of September we'll be posting an exclusive extract and competition to win copies!


Rachel's world is confined to the protective walls around her city. Beyond them are violent wanderers, extreme terrain, and a danger straight out of legend: a beast called the Cursed One that devastates everything in its path.

When Rachel's father goes missing, she is desperate to search for him. But her attempts to flee the city bring her to the attention of its overbearing ruler. His efforts to control her make the world within the walls seem as dangerous as that outside.

Her only chance at escape is Logan. Once her father's apprentice, and now her only protector, he feels that helping her might mean losing her completely. But if he can put his feelings aside, they might be able to save more than Rachel's father. They might be able to break down the walls, and set their people free.
