This is a triumphant tale of courage and self discovery that will make you believe in your own strength." --Kylie Lee Baker, author of The Keeper of Night "With a truly inventive setting and so many twists and turns, Dauntless takes you on a journey that's often bloody, sometimes sweet, but that always keeps you guessing until the very end. Likable characters and sweet romances only add to this wonderful mix of ultimately embracing the unknown with courage rather than prejudice." --Diana Pinguicha, author of A Curse of Roses "An amazing read, full of non-stop action and breathless moments. Spending time with these characters was a delight!" --K.S. Villoso, author of The Wolf of Oren-Yaro " Dauntless offers a compelling, complex narrative following a young teen soldier caught between two worlds and haunted by her past. Along with its slow-burn, sapphic romance and verdant jungle setting inspired by the Philippines, it's sure to capture readers' hearts and imaginations." --Sam Taylor, author of We Are the Fire”
