An Impossible Romance.
Bitter Rivalries.
Deadly Choices.

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?

In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.

Slight spoilery.

Is it just me, or like....hardly anything happened in this book? I mean, yeah a few things happen. But it's like, well there should be more to that situation. :/

Although, I did like the book, I really did. It's like this book and Firelight could have been one book. It would've been more interesting the first time around. But ya know how authors and publishers are.

ANYWAY. before I start sounding more like an idiot... I liked this book because there's an original species in there. You don't see a lot of dragon descendants in YA books. And Sophie totally pushed it a bit more in Vanish. It was definitely vivid, I could picture it in my head perfectly.

As for the characters. I felt really sorry for Jacinda in the beginning of this book. She was treated like total crap, when it was her mother's fault. Although, I did feel sorry for her mother towards the end, but it seemed like that was what she wanted when she left the pride the first time. I also felt sorry for Cassian. :c He just...-sigh-...he just needs more love. almost got her wings clipped off. :/ Aaaand, I didn't feel anything for Tamra. At all. I didn't like her in the first book, and I don't like her in this one. Dar. Severin & Corbin can go die in a hole~

Damn, love makes you do stupid-ass things, doesn't it?

4/5 because I love dragons & Cassian. :3
