Cover Reveal: The Defiance (Brilliant Darkness #2) by A.G. Henley

If you read indie books and are a fan of YA, you’ve probably heard of A.G. Henley’s book The Scourge. The Scourge, a dystopian YA fantasy, has found hundreds of fans since its publication last year, and now I’m happy to share the cover of the upcoming sequel.


THE DEFIANCE (Brilliant Darkness, #2)

Cover design by (the fabulous, professional, efficient) Robin Ludwig Design Inc.,

Suspicion Trust. Fear Compassion. Hate Love.

Fennel and Peree learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems. Now they need to convince their people that everything they believe is a lie.

An impossible task, especially when someone seems resolved to try anything—even arson and butchery—to destroy Fenn and Peree’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties.

Unable to tell friend from foe and with the Scourge pushing both groups to the breaking point, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future.

Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear.

DEFIANCE will be available on July 29, 2013.


A.G. Henley is the author of the BRILLIANT DARKNESS series. Her first book, THE SCOURGE, was a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award.

A.G. is also a clinical psychologist, which means people either tell her their life stories on airplanes, or avoid her at parties when they’ve had too much to drink. Neither of which she minds. When she’s not writing fiction or shrinking heads, she can be found herding her children and their scruffy dog, Guapo, to various activities while trying to remember whatever she’s inevitably forgotten to tell her husband. She lives in Denver, Colorado. Learn more at
