When his beloved sister is captured, Rupert, the youngest son of the ruling family, is sent to save her. As the power of the enemy increases, can he overcome personal tragedy, emotional entanglements and lost allegiances to emerge as the hero? Or will subversive forces and increasing austerity inspire the people to rebel against him?
The Dominion – Defiant is the second book in the fantasy trilogy. If you like epic adventure, dark brooding menace, vivid characters and imaginative settings, then you’ll love this latest instalment by popular author Chris Cloake.
The Dominion – Defiant by Chris Cloake is the second book in The Dominion trilogy. Good news, I had no issues reading this because everything is explained really well. I want to read the first book now, because I loved this so much and think that will be just as good!
One of my favorite things about fantasy is how immersive the world can be. Defiant allows the reader to feel part of the story.
The writing was excellent. It was paced well and the themes are strong. Love, loss, grief, guilt…it’s balanced so well, and makes for such a well rounded, fantasy novel.
I’m looking forward to reading more from this author and this trilogy. I absolutely loved this and highly recommend it!

Chris Cloake was born in 1964 and began telling stories a couple of years later. He grew up in Kent, England. He is motivated to write by a deep interest in life, particularly the cruel, deeply flawed nature of people contrasted with their incredible creativity and inspiration. The power of the natural world is a common theme in his work as a writer and professional photographer. He lives happily with his wife, two children and a large collection of music, books and board games.
