"Joe and Jason were pushed towards the open manhole. They didn't know it, but they had run directly into the clutches of the Rats..."

Tragedy has struck Anasius, forcing Prince Arlon and his companions underground. Struggling to survive, they know they need help if they're going to save their country.

Once again, fifteen-year-old Trey and his six friends find themselves extracted – this time, into an Anasius seventy years older than the one they left.

Navigating grief, hostile forces and an underground resistance, the group meet a mysterious figure called Melek. Will they be able to turn things around? And will Zika be able to forgive himself?

Selected Endorsements

"Defiance artfully delivers all the earmarks of a fantastic thriller, without the unnecessary distractions of foul language and explicit scenes. This is a can’t miss sequel of the crew back in action. Plus, by the time I closed the pages, I walked away with a new appreciation for looking out for my friends and seeking the inner healing that we all desperately need to fulfil the duty of a higher calling."

Nicolas C. Day,  Selah Award finalist and author of Into the Great Marinara

“Rich Castro has taken the friendships, fears and frustrations of teenage life and crafted a high-octane fantasy adventure that demonstrates why underestimating the talents and tenacity of young people is rarely a good idea.”

Peter Andrews, Resources Manager, Urban Saints
