Review: Vanish (Firelight #2) by Sophie Jordan


Vanish (Firelight, #2)


Title: Vanish 
(Firelight #2)
Author: Sophie Jordan

Summary:
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?


Review:
Vanish starts immediately after the end of Firelight. Jacinda, along with her mother and sister, return to the Pride, knowing she will have to face punishment for revealing herself to a human. But before they even get there, something changes. Tamra, the once defunct Draki, has fainally manifested, and her talent rivals even Jacindas rare fire-breathing talent.
This is great news, as before Tamra was a nothing, she is now held above most others. Unfortunately, Jacinda is now very low in the ranking of Pride life, seen as a traitor- basically.

While she tries to get used to Pride life again, she cant because she continuously think=s of Will, the human she risked her life to save. The problem is, he is not an ordinary human, he is a hunter with Draki blood in his veins.

Things go all crazy from there, with a botched escape plan comes a missing Pride member- the annoying Miram, Cassian’s little sister.

Jacinda has to choose between saving herself, running freely with the man she loves, or doing what no one has tried before- a rescue attempt.

The book was a fast read, very hard to put down. I enjoyed it immensely. I still love Will, though I will say that Cassian grew on me a lot in this book. BUT- I HATE triangles. Why cant I read a good YA paranormal romance without 2 boys vying for the attention of one girl?? Im so freakin tired of it! (FYI-MY paranormal romance novel doesnt have a triangle in it *hint hint*)

Also- Jacinda is so wishy-washy. She goes back and forth, Pride life or not, Cassian or Will, blah, blah blah. She got on my nerve a lot more in Vanish than in Firelight.

That being said, Tamra didn’t get on my nerves in this book. Since she is now a Draki- with a super awesome talent- she isn’t the whiny, moping girl she was in Firelight. So that’s a plus.
Even with the few annoyances in this book, it was still awesome. The world building is fantastical!

Recommended to all YA, paranormal, fantasy fans
Rating: 4 Stars.
