Being a girl can be seen as a detriment. After all, women didn't get the right to vote until after male slaves were given the right to vote. But Ava is a girl who you wouldn't want to make mad. She's faced the loss of her town and family when her father is murdered. But like Mulan, she steps up and takes matters into her own hands.
Jules Adrienn's upcoming release is one for fans of strong female characters. The story is still a romance but one where the heroine is able to stand on her own. She's on a quest and won't let anything stop her from getting her vengeance and finding a new home for her loved ones.
Coming in one month, Ava the Brave is sure to become a new favorite of yours!
Sixteen-year-old Ava Phoenix’s unlikely defeat of the grand praetorian’s son in a fighting contest triggers her father’s murder and an official decree to destroy her village. Together with her first love, Beau, she races across a post-apocalyptic landscape to save her village while being hunted by her dystopian world’s deadliest teenage warriors.
Heart-rending loss, romance, and an unjust world combine to create a heroine who rises above violence even as she dispenses justice. Ava the Brave shows how a warrior’s heart can be lost and rediscovered even in the most savage of lands.
"From the first blows dealt at the champion contest, readers will be hooked on Ava's quest to avenge her father and clear the reputation of her village. This neo-medieval, dystopian genre blender will keep readers wondering what's next for Ava long after they've turned the final page." Colleen Clayton, YA author of WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
"You'll want to fight alongside Ava, cheer for her brave warriors, and join the adventure of a lifetime in this exciting debut novel." Abigail Drake, Best-Selling Author
