Review By Alaiel Kreuz: Things have changed a lot for Jacinda. The last time we saw her she had revealed the biggest secret of her kind to save the live of her true love, Will. Now her family and her are going back to the Pride with Cassian who was the one that found them. But nothing is going to be the same now... There was a time when Jacinda was the favorite of the Pride because she is the last fire-breather and that made her very special. Special enough to marry the heir of the throne, Cassian and "create" more fire-breathers with him. Sadly for her Tamra, her twin sister, is now in the spotlight. When Jacinda showed her draki form to the hunters in order to save Will's life Tamra, in some sort of trance, was the one who saved them all when she her power finally bloomed and became a shader. Now, as the future protector of the Pride she has become the favorite draki leaving Jacinda in a lower rank after what she did. Looking at her future everything looks dark: after what Tamra did Will shouldn't be able to remember anything that happened that night, not even what she did to save him or why she left without a word so despite their promise their relationship is lost. She fears that her punishment for her actions are going to be the clipping of her wings -and that, besides from painful, is going to kill her- unless she agrees to pair with Cassian -but she doesn't love him...right?-. And her mother is trap, just like her in a place where nobody cares if she is okay or not. Meaning? Her life is a living hell. Now, what I liked about this book? Tamra, no doubt. Her development is really good and somehow I'm beginning to like her more than Jacinda. Why? Because Tamra knows what she wants and who she wants... nothing like Jacinda who is one page thinking in Will and in the next page flirting whit Cassian. But their relationship as sisters also grows and I sure had a good time reading how they help and need each other, just like they need their mother. The ending was predictable but really interesting nonetheless. Will I read the third book? Of course I will :Dshow moreby Alaiel Kreuz
I loved Firelight, so it wasn't really a surprise for me to read Vanish in only a couple of hours! Vanish follows Firelight from the exact point where Jacinda, Cassian, Tamra and their mother are in the car, escaping from hunters. It's almost impossible, but Tamra gives everybody a surprise and saves them. It's obvious Jacinda isn't welcome in the pride, and her mother either. But Tamra is more welcome now, and everyone wants her. Vanish is full of action. I thought it was going to be a dramatic book, thinking that Jacinda was going to probably be crying all the time. She cries, but she's such a strong character. That's why I like her so much. In this book Cassian has the opportunity to shine. In Firelight he was always under the shadow of doubt, but he's actually very sweet, mature, and I can see he is one of those characters who always get hurt in love triangles. Will is also in the story, but I, as Jacinda, kind of feel in between Cassian and Will. Obviously Jacinda loves Will, but Cassian is also very sweet to her...so yes, love triangle. I was glad Tamra had her moment to shine, but still as with the first book, I'm not a fan of her or Jacinda's mother. Overall, Vanish is the perfect continuation for Firelight. I got the feeling Firelight is actually one book split in three parts. Of course, the ending is another cliffhanger, even worse than the one at the first book....so I can't wait to read the next book!show moreby Maria Guajardo (GABY)
Vanish starts off right where Firelight ended. I thought this was cool cause you really never see that in a sequel. While I liked Firelight, I LOVED Vanish. It blew me away. Sophie did such an amazing job with the sequel. A true 5 STAR! Jacinda is heading back to the pride after revealing her true self. The opening scene is so action packed and shocking. Will and his family are shaded or are they? Wondering how they were shaded and who did it, well you'll have to read Vanish to find out. Once Jacinda and her family return home to the pride she sees what their leaving has caused. There is now a curfew and lots of new rules among the pride. Jacinda lost her job and possibly so much more. Vanish brings so many things to readers. We learn more about the draki and other characters have bigger roles in this one. There is loads of action and jaw dropping shocking moments. My favorite, love triangles and let me tell you there is lots of want to be love triangles. I found myself really liking Cassian this time around. I mean I still think Will is great but Cassian gives him a run for the money with Jacinda. When Jacinda follows her heart other people get hurt and she endangers the lives of everyone in the pride. Vanish had me hooked from the first page to the cliffhanger ending. I couldn't stop reading it, I just wanted more. When you finish that last page you will be begging for book 3. I know I am. Sophie outdid herself on this one. It was one of the best books I've read this year! I received this as an ARC e-book from NetGalley and Harper Collins for review. This did not affect my review in any way.show moreby Unknown
