When the war breaks out in her hometown, she is forced to decide whether she will obey orders or rebel against the authority she respects. Either way, she must protect those she loves most, no matter the dangers.

As she navigates new territory with her loyal best friend, she’ll risk her life, and even her soul, for victory. 

In war, sacrifice is inevitable. 

Is her faith enough to get her through the fire?

**4 stars**

Sparrow is the exciting sequel to Defier: The Girl Who Stood by Mandy Fender! These books are Christian dystopian, action-packed and faith-filled!

Lennox Winters is now a Sparrow soldier, living in a protected base along with her friend, Sky, brother, Oliver, and other resisters. The Regime is still hard at work, spreading their evil across the world. Time is running out. Lennox and her friends must find Lennox and Oliver's mother's locket, embedded with a secret chip, and destroy the Regime's plan.

Sparrow is a story of faith and sorrow. Evil and victory. I love how Many Fender always points back to God and relying on His strength. Lennox and the others must learn to trust God with everything - their lives, and the lives of those they love. Beautiful theme of faith and hope and trust.

We get some dystopian technology and whatnot, which is always fun for me! The genre of dystopian is almost like a form of fantasy. Authors imagine what our world could be like in the future, and make up all kinds of weird and interesting things. *grins* So that was enjoyable.

There's action and battles. Pain and fear. Some characters we love get hit hard. Things are so very uncertain ... but Sparrow ends on a note of hope and determination. Things are not over. Lennox will not stop fighting. God is still on the throne.

I look forward to reading book three, the conclusion to the DEFIER series, Conqueror!

I received a copy of Sparrow from the author in exchange for my honest review.
