This conclusion to the Firelight trilogy continues the
conflict between a dragon-girl and those who hunt her kind.
Jacinda is a draki, a being that can morph from human form
into a fire-breathing, flying dragonlike creature. She has
her own society but wants to escape it with her human
boyfriend, Will, who comes from a family that hunts the
draki. This installment begins with Jacinda intentionally
caught and imprisoned in an underground facility in which
rather nasty scientists do research on draki. She plots with
Will and her enforced mate, Cassian, to escape. Once the
attack commences, exciting scenes ensue as the group fights
their way out with a new, dangerous draki in tow. Jordan
keeps the focus mostly on action even as she weaves in the
forbidden-romance elements required by this genre, although
the romantic conflict was mostly resolved in the previous
installment. Plenty of rivalries among Jacinda and other
draki spice things up. Two new characters, Deghan, the long-
imprisoned draki, and little Lia appeal, although the story
allows Lia's fate to dangle unresolved. Chase scenes, near-
captures and a late-game betrayal or two keep the narrative
moving. Except for the subplot regarding Lia, everything
comes to an ending that will satisfy readers. New readers
would best start with the beginning of the trilogy.
