Rebel Bell by Rachel Hawkins

Book Cover

Harper Price is a southern bell that was born ready for a homecoming tiara. But when the night of her crowning goes crazy, she is given the powers of a Paladin. Now she is a guardian with agility, super strength, and lethal fighting skills; she is charged to protect her least favorite person in the universe, David Stark. Things get complicated when Harper starts to fall for him, and learns that his fate could be to destroy the Earth.

This book was pretty good. There wasn’t anything wrong with it, it just wasn’t one of my favorites. I liked how the main character kept saying that she wasn’t a Paladin, she was a cotillion girl, homecoming queen, and a southern belle. I loved how she’d be fixing her makeup, then she’d knock out six bad guys, then finish fixing her makeup. The plot was good, with just the right amount of action. It also had a really good ending and thankfully, no major plot twists. I will be looking forward to the (hopefully) sequel. It was good, and I recommend it to you.
