Publisher: Iambe Books
Blog Tour: Guest Post (DEFY DREAM CAST)

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.

As Tate struggles to find a way home, she ends up drawn into a dark Mercesti plot involving multiple murders and a powerful ancient artifact. With the unpredictable Zachariah as her only source for aid, she’ll soon find out if her abilities are strong enough to help her defy her Fate.


by author Raine Thomas

Tate: Taylor Swift as a brunette (17-year-old Tate is tall, well-toned and curvy, with a somewhat exotic beauty and curly hair…much like Taylor).

Zachariah: Chace Crawford (Although Chace is older than Zachariah in appearance, Zachariah is tall and muscular with disheveled blond hair and an intensity in his gaze; Chace really captures my vision for Zachariah).

Sophia:  Sara Paxton (Sophia is petite with straight, blonde hair, ivory skin, and a cleft in her chin; in short, Sara is the perfect actress to portray her).

Quincy: Chris Hemsworth (Quincy is tall and muscular with an Australian accent, silver eyes, and blond hair; Chris looks much like I envision him).

Clara Kate: Emma Roberts (Clara Kate is a brunette with wavy hair; if Emma had deep blue-green eyes, she would be a shoe-in for C.K.).
Ini-herit: Alex Meraz (Ini-herit has the look of an exotic, well-muscled Egyptian with silver eyes; with longer hair and those silver eyes, Alex would definitely fit the bill).

Tiege: Kevin Jonas (Tiege is a 17-year-old male with a muscular build and curly brown hair; with deep blue-green eyes, tan skin, and some time with the weights, Kevin would make a great Tiege).

Ariana: Victoria Justice (If Victoria had lavender eyes, she’d make the perfect Ariana).


Raine Thomas is the author of a bestselling series of YA fantasy romance novels about the Estilorian plane, including the Daughters of Saraqael trilogy and the upcoming Firstborn trilogy. She is a proud member of Romance Writers of America and is a contributing blogger to The Writer's Voice. When she isn’t planning weddings, writing or glued to social networking sites, she can usually be found on one of Florida’s beautiful beaches with her husband and daughter or crossing the border to visit with her Canadian friends and relatives.
