Dragon hatchling Ember Hill was never prepared to find love at all--dragons do not suffer human emotions--let alone the love of a human and a former dragonslayer, at that. With ex-soldier Garret dying at her feet after sacrificing his freedom and his life to expose the deepest of betrayals, Ember knows only that nothing she was taught by dragon organization Talon is true. About humans, about rogue dragons, about herself and what she's capable of doing and feeling.
In the face of great loss, Ember vows to stand with rogue dragon Riley against the dragon-slaying Order of St. George and her own twin brother Dante--the heir apparent to all of Talon, and the boy who will soon unleash the greatest threat and terror dragonkind has ever known.
Talon is poised to take over the world, and the abominations they have created will soon take to the skies, darkening the world with the promise of blood and death to those who refuse to yield.
Another great installment to a fabulous dragon series! Julie never disappoints! As always, there was plenty of action. This book was super intense! Shit hit the fan O__O
Can we please talk about how awesome Jade is and how I need her to have her own series stat?! She’s so delightfully sarcastic in the most hilarious deadpan way, I love her so much, I think she’s my fave character of the series! NEED MORE JADE.
Of course Dante is an asshole. Stupid Dante. Cobalt is awesome and I lurve him. And Ember is still our favorite fiery dragon MC. (I named my newest kitty after her, BTW!) I always love Julie’s characters!
It’s super hard to talk about much else in this book because most of it is spoilery!View Spoiler »REMY NOOOO. Poor Remy :( Also it breaks my damn heart that she rejected Cobalt. It’s okay, Cobalt, I’ll take you *waggles eyebrows* The whole bit with the Elder Wyrm and Ember being the vessel is super creepy O___O So um, how is that going to work out in the next book?! Also WHAT IS THE FINAL PHASE I NEED TO KNOW JULIE I’M DYING HERE. « Hide Spoiler
Of course, in typical Julie fashion, the ending is a bit of a cliffhanger. I am DYING for Inferno!!
