Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
From the New York Times bestselling author of Hex Hall comes the sparkling finale in the beloved Rebel Belle series.
Just as Harper Price starts coming to terms with her role as David Stark's battle-ready Paladin, protector, and girlfriend—her world goes crazy all over again.
Overwhelmed by his Oracle powers, David flees Pine Grove and starts turning teenaged girls into Paladins—and these young ladies seem to think that Harper is the enemy David needs protecting from. Ordinarily, Harper would be able to fight off any Paladin who comes her way, but her powers have been dwindling since David left town, which means her life is on the line yet again.
Now, it’s a desperate race for Harper to find and rescue David before she backslides from superhero to your garden-variety type-A belle.
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins brings the fun once again in the finale of this pitch-perfect romantic paranormal comedy series.

It was just a ward, for the most part, but Ryan had added something extra to mine, something that could only be activated with a certain collection of words he’d taught me. Something Bee didn’t know about. I turned back to Ryan and nodded. “I won’t have to use it.” “Let’s hope,” he answered, and then moved away from me. Our good-byes said (and Aunt May’s cooler packed in the trunk), Bee, Blythe, and I got in my car.

And then, all at once, it was like the strength went out of my grip. I actually felt it go out of me, like someone had opened a drain. One moment, I was all Paladin Triumphant, and the next, I was just a regular girl, the pain in my head seeming to multiply by about a thousand. I couldn’t help but stagger a bit, and the girl in my grip must’ve
we do what needs to be done, Harper. It’s who we are. Did you know that back before all this happened to me, I was SGA president at my school, too? We didn’t have cheerleaders, but I was first-chair flute in the school symphony, and I was on just about every committee there was.

It’s why we were chosen.” I shook my

He’d barely had any time before I was on him, and then all his concentration was on me, flinging more glowing bolts from his hands, the magic hitting the metal of my sword and throwing up sparks. “David, please,” I heard myself say in a voice that didn’t sound anything like mine.
