The Firelight Trilogy has been a roller coaster of emotions.
No matter what Jacinda does, she seems to hurt those she
loves. The second installment, VANISH, started off right
after the cliff hanger of an ending from Firelight. The
first chapter packs a punch I was in no way expecting. It
was a wonderful way to start off an exciting book. Vanish is
a page turner in every way. The story is so fast paced that
the our main characters barely have time to take a breath
before something else happens that changes the situation
completely. I kept telling myself that I could read just one
more chapter to see what happens to the characters you grew
to love or hate in the first book of this wonderful tale. I
also realized that first impressions are not always correct.
I found myself feeling sorry for characters I thought were
selfish and liking characters that I couldn't stand. As for
those characters I loved. I loved them even more. You see
growth in many ways through this story. Motives that were
not known in the beginning come to light. The pattern of
fast pace revelations continues to the very last page. If
you were a fan of Firelight, the continuation in
VANISH is a
must read. If you have not picked up the series yet, it is a
must read for any fan of Young Adult or a reader who wants a
great read to break them into the genre.
Firelight introduced readers to the steamy romance between
Jacinda and Will, and to the drakiâ€”descendants of dragons
who can shift between their human and dragon forms. In this
compelling sequel, Sophie Jordan delivers an action-packed
plot while expertly capturing the emotional tension of young
love, self-sacrifice, and unbearable choices. This
heart-wrenching story will appeal to fans of Maggie
Stiefvater, Lauren Kate, and Aprilynne Pike.
To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the
unthinkableâ€”she revealed her draki form to dragon hunters.
Now that sheâ€™s back within the protection of her kind,
Jacinda is seen as a traitor. Harder still is the knowledge
that she can never see Will again. But when, against all
odds, she has a chance to be reunited with him, is the cost
too high? Or will she risk everything for love?
