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?


Ahh!  I am so glad I got the chance to read Vanish early but now I am dying for more.  Just like with Firelight, Vanish leaves you with an idea of what is coming next but months before you can actually read about it.  It is pure torture!

Jacinda is back with the pride but she is not happy about it.  She never thought she would want to live in the human world but that was before she met Will.   Now she is home and all she can think about is finding a way back to him.  Her biggest fear may come true though.  What if the pride clips her wings before she can leave? Or worse, what if Cassian makes sure she can’t leave?

I love Jacinda.  This book made me like her even more than the first.  She may be descended from dragons but her emotions are very human.  She is scared, insecure, guarded, but also very loving when it comes to her family and Will.  I also still love Will but Cassian is growing on me.  He shows a very different side of himself in this book and it’s hard not to like him, at least a little.

The plot is awesome. So many things were going on.  It definitely kept me reading.  I had no idea what was going to come next.  I loved the suspense.  I bit off all my nails while reading this one!

Overall, Vanish is an amazing follow up to Firelight.  I am dying to read the next book and it’s not even close to being released.  I don’t know what I am going to do!

  1. OK, I love this review because you gave me hope for Cassian. I mean, I love Will, but there’s something so dark and seductive about Cassian that just calls to me… LOL

  2. She is an amazing writer. I love how she put dragons in the normal teen world and created a wonderful girl to show us the dragon world!!
