Jacinda was supposed to bond with Cassian, the "prince" of their pride. But she resisted long before she fell in love with Will—a human and, worse, a hunter. When she ran away with Will, it ended in disaster, with Cassian's sister, Miram, captured. Weighed down by guilt, Jacinda knows she must rescue her to set things right. Yet to do so she will have to venture deep into the heart of enemy territory.

The only way Jacinda can reach Miram is by posing as a prisoner herself, though once she assumes that disguise, things quickly spiral out of her control. As she learns more about her captors, she realizes that even if Will and Cassian can carry out their part of the plan, there's no guarantee they'll all make it out alive. But what Jacinda never could have foreseen is that escaping would be only the beginning....

Loyalties are tested and sacrifices made in the explosive conclusion to Sophie Jordan's Firelight trilogy





I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced, action packed and you never know what was going to happen. There was never a dull moment in this book and once you read the first page its going to be hard to stop until you know everything that happens.

While I liked this book there was something a little off to me. Its hard to put my finger on it. I think it had to do something about Jacinda and always talking about how much she loved Will and it just seemed to me after all the events that have taken place she would be more focused on other things. I mean we know by now she wants to be with him, but during rescue missions and running for your life and trying to keep everyone alive I just didn't want to hear about it. It came across to me more of a school girl crush then a totally deep down love. But that might just be me,  Plus we all know I love Cassian.

I can't even talk about Cassian though without getting upset. The more I think about it the more mad I get. I loved him. I loved their bond together and thought him and Jacinda would have been great together. I must stop talking about this before I spoil anything.

The story itself was great, I just think I wasn't into the romance of it. Even with all that I still got way into this book. Since its the last in the series, I just had to know how it was all going to end. There were lots of surprises and twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat.  We got some much needed answers, a lot of closure and I am sure an ending mostly everyone will be happy with. I am really sad to see this series go. And I kinda wish since not everyone got their happily ever after maybe they will get a story in the future.

  1. In a way this series frusterates me a bit. I don't know. I think it's the pack stuff, I"m gonna say pack because I don't know the dragon word or remember what they called it in this series, the leader guy and stuff! UGH! And the love triangle got a little frusterating in the second book. I don't know, in a way this love triangle just gives me a huge headache.

  3. I got really turned off by Vanish. It ended so abruptly that it almost felt like the author was mid-sentence. It's one of the things that annoys me so much about YA and the main reason why I rarely read this genre anymore. In fact, I think Vanish might have been the tipping point for me in writing off YA altogether. After reading your review it doesn't sound like this book made amends for the last installment's shortcomings and even though this is the last novel in this series; I'll probably never read it. Thanks for the review, it made me feel better about not continuing with this series.

    1. I don't know why almost every YA books insists on having a love triangle. that is what burns me out on them a lot. Like with Nightshade series I knew I couldn't handle that love triangle so I quit the book.

  4. This has been in my radar for quite a while, but the reviews for the first book weren't that good, and I see this seems to be just meh! Oh well, I had to say I was curious because I liked the covers..lol
    Thanks! Good work!

  5. I was thinking maybe meh wasn't the right word, I guess I was hoping for a better rating than what I've seen for the previous book. Maybe if go into it not expecting much from the romance, I might still be able to enjoy it.

  7. The covers for this series are so good but the books are a let down.
