Book Synopsis



A teen girl must bring together two broken worlds in order to save her nation in this lush, Filipino-inspired young adult fantasy novel from debut author Elisa A. Bonnin.

"Be dauntless, for the hopes of the People rest in you."

Seri's world is defined by very clear rules: The beasts prowl the forest paths and hunt the People. The valiant explore the unknown world, kill the beasts, and gain strength from the armor they make from them. As an assistant to Eshai Unbroken, a young valor commander with a near-mythical reputation, Seri has seen first-hand the struggle to keep the beasts at bay and ensure the safety of the spreading trees where the People make their homes. That was how it always had been, and how it always would be. Until the day Seri encounters Tsana.

Tsana is, impossibly, a stranger from the unknown world who can communicate with the beasts - a fact that makes Seri begin to doubt everything she's ever been taught. As Seri and Tsana grow closer, their worlds begin to collide, with deadly consequences. Somehow, with the world on the brink of war, Seri will have to find a way to make peace.

"Dauntless captures the best parts of every action-packed fantasy--breathtaking scenes of power and victory that push the limits of human tenacity. 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.

Wow, I really enjoyed this fast-paced fantasy and find myself still thinking about it. The world building was fantastic—with cities in trees, beasts that roam the ground, and warriors fighting to protect their settlements. But the best part was the characters and relationships—Sari, Eshai and Tsana will stay with you long after you read the final page. 5 stars.
