Vanish Review

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.

My Review:

First I have to discuss this amazing cover. How freakin' awesome is it?! 'Cuz I think it's unbelievably gorgeous! I love the shininess and the purple and well, everything!

Now that that's over let's get to the review. This book jumped right into the action from where Firelight ended. It was so well done that Vanish didn't even feel like another book. It was just a continuation of Firelight. There were no long spiels that you wanted to skip over because you already knew what happened, it was just BAM! here's the action, like it or don't. I, for one, chose to not only like it, but love it supremely.

Jacinda is still the strong, loving draki from before. She manages to stay strong in a lot of horrible situations and her and Will together hasn't changed a bit since book one. All of the characters were gorgeous in their descriptions and dialect. Even Cassian, who I didn't really like in Firelight, is given a part that totally makes me want to love him (but I am firmly Team Will!).

The only aspect of the book that I found I didn't like was how Jordan seemed to put all of the blame on poor Jacinda. She was constantly being blamed despite the fact that it was her mother, not her, who made all of the bad decisions.

All in all it was a beautifully written, totally amazing book of awesomeness. If you haven't read Firelight, go read it and then pick up Vanish. You seriously won't regret it!
