Staff Reviews

"I really enjoyed Rachel Hawkins previous series, Hex Hall, so I was excited to read Rebel Belle. It was a fun story of, as the author puts it, “Legally Blonde meets The Terminator.” I loved the subtle Buffy the Vampire Slayer
reference, and that Harper was allowed to enjoy both dressing up for
school dances and an action movie other characters scorned for being
“too guy-ish,” because those two things aren’t mutually exclusive. It
was very Buffy-esque, but with fantasy and Mages instead of paranormal and vampires. Don’t be fooled by the beginning; there is
action and it can get pretty bloody. (Harper starts off murdering a man
with a stiletto heel in his throat!) I bet this book will turn just
about everyone who reads it into a Rachel Hawkins fan."

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.
