Review: Vanish (Firelight #2) by 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?
In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.

WOW what a sequel. I LOVED this book I couldn't put it down. It has everything that I love in a great book romance, adventure and a storyline that ROCKS!

The characters are solid. I was attached to Jacinda in book one and I just grew to love her more in book 2. Will and Cassian are strong male characters that I found myself flipping back and forth rooting for. First wanting her to be with one and then the other. Never growing tired of the triangle. Both cared for her and both want to be with her. So I wanted her to stay with both. I rarely find myself doing that in a book. I usually side with one or the other. With the exception of one book Nightshade.
The storyline is adventurous and exciting and I found myself holding my breath at one moment in the book. I had the thought "NOOO" LOL. It twists and turns and I couldn't get enough.
I cant say enough about this book. Other than you MUST read part one to get part two. It is definitely not a stand alone book. The history of the characters is important in this book.
All I can say is "STANDING OVATION" TO sophie Jordon. Well done!

My Score: 5 STARS!

  1. oh wow great review. This is the one book I am looking forward to this year!!

  2. I felt like we got a better look at how the pride functions in this book. It seems like the powers that be tend to rule with iron fist. While most fall in line with that idea, Jacinda obviously doesn't it. But, she's really to try. She's doing it for her sisters sake, and I think a little bit for her own. Because crippling her spirit makes it easier to forget Will. It's hard for her in many ways. She's watching her sister find her place in the pride, something she's always wanted. And at the same time, she's watching her mother die inside a little everyday. It must be hard to go through all that and basically have the entire pride shun you at the same time.
