My Rating: 5/5--Incredible! Loved it!
Plot in One Word: Dragons
Good if...you want something magical and romantic
As the second novel in this series, I was happy to find this one just as good as the first! I read it greedily just as I did with #1. Some of my favorite features were: 1. The fast pace. 2. The twists and turns. 3. The characters, especially Jacinda. 4. The romance. Not lacking between Jacinda and Will. I even liked the new developments to Cassian's character, his tenderness and softer side, and the possible love triangle that's begun to develop. 5. The myth arch. The dragons. Their talents. The sister's new abilities. Even the effect Will's blood holds over him. All great additions to an already great story!
I will say make sure you read FIRELIGHT before reading this one. I doubt it would make much sense without the first one. I think it was good thing too that I recently read the first one. Also, I feel like this story ended a bit too soon. A great deal was resolved, but it ended just before the build up of another great action scene. That would be my only complaint. I have to wait a year to know what happened!! But I have to know so bad that I most definitely will buy book #3. I wonder what it's cover will look like. :)
