And to an extent it was—but it is important to start this review from the start. I started this series right when Firelight came out. This means I was still a teenager and my threshold level for idiotic heroines was a lot higher than it is now. If I were to read Firelight now, I probably would enact my page rule and drop this series all because of Jacinda. Jacinda is a very hard character to like. Perhaps the most redeeming quality to her is that she cares for her family—occasionally. Part of the reason is the overall concept of the book.
Then finds some sort of happiness, but of course at some point she'll just descend into whining again. Frankly, I couldn't stand her.
Well, it starts off pretty interesting, actually. There's this whole thing with the enkros facility, and what's going on there, and what will happen in the future and whatnot.
I mean, it was actually pretty interesting, and I was looking forward to seeing where it was gonna go. I was even willing to ignore the gigantic plot holes that were big enough to hide a dinosaur in.
Then it turned ugly real fast. It was clear by the halfway point that Sophie had no intention of answering pretty much all of the questions she raised in this novel. And she didn't, so I was right.
I don't mind some open endings, but if you're going to open a thousand can of worms, you've got to give something. Leaving readers with a million questions generally pisses them off.
It just felt so unnecessary.
Why bother to do something like that? Just to be mean? Like, seriously.
It just doesn't make any sense. I just…it made me so angry. It actually started off well, and then it all went downhill. It really did have legitimate potential. And then…ruined. In a moment. If I talk about this anymore I have the strangest feeling my fist will fly through my laptop, so I am going to top here. And move on to something that will probably also make me angry, but hopefully in a different way.
At least, it's inappropriate for YA in my opinion. She also writes historical romance for adults and, um, it shows. There's one particularly awkward scene near the beginning that is basically completely pointless and not sexy or romantic at all, though I'm sure it was intended to be.
I'm putting it under a spoiler tab, although it won't really spoil anything. Better safe than sorry. And then apparently he kind of just kisses her.
It's weird and pointless and just disgusting. It was totally unnecessary. And throughout the book, there's just no spark. All they do is act like idiots for each other, and not in a cute way at all. Frankly, I have this romance. I like Jacinda and Cassian together, but, well, you know. Jacinda's voice just doesn't sit well with me and the phrasing is so awkward.
Not only that. But the sentences. Are like.
But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki, a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form. Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings.
The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters.
She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away;if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Vanish An impossible romance. Bitter rivalries. Deadly choices.
