If you haven’t read Firelight yet, this will contain some pretty awesome spoilers in it. Ye been warned! I couldn’t wait…I had to do another post this week. This book…totally worth it. It left an even BIGGER cliffhanger than the first…can you even fathom that? And why am I using words like “ye” and “fathom“???
Author: Sophie Jordan
To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.
Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?
I’m desperate…desperately desperate…for the next book. I just had to let everyone know up front. So if you’re the type that likes being able to read all the books in the series at once…do not start this one. I’m doomed.
So, Jacinda has gone back to the pride with her mom and Tamra. Everyone sure is surprised to see the changed Tamra too! It even catches the eye of Cassian whom Tamra has fawned over for years. Things start going downhill fast though and although a lot of people are glad to see Tamra, not everyone is excited about Jacinda and their mom being back.
While living with everyone in the pride being kinda nasty, Jacinda also is worried about Will. In the last book we see, when Tamra makes her grand transformation, that Will and everyone gets thrown into a fog to make them forget everything they’ve just seen. Just how much does Will forget? Will he remember her at all? Dun Dun DUN!!!!!!
I loved being able to see the day to day lives of the pride. I liked the explanations of the different processes or things that goes on in the draki world. This book helped give more background and insight as to how restrictive they are and why Jacinda had acted the way she did in the first book.
In this book, the love triangle is HUGE! It can’t be a ya fiction read if there aren’t two boys and one girl involved, can it? I hope you enjoy this book as much I did! …now to twiddle my thumbs until 2012 comes around the the third book decides to publish itself…
