Hidden by Sophie Jordan

Genre:  YA Paranormal Romance
Firelight Series, Book 3

Note:  The description below can ruin plots from earlier novels.

Description (taken from Sophie Jordan's website):
Jacinda was supposed to bond with Cassian, the "prince" of their pride. But she resisted her fate long before she fell in love with Will—a human and, worse, a hunter. When she ran away with Will, it ended in disaster, with Cassian's sister, Miram, captured. Weighed down by guilt, Jacinda knows she must rescue her to set things right. Yet to do so she will have to venture deep into the heart of enemy territory.

The only way Jacinda can reach Miram is by posing as a prisoner herself, though once she assumes that disguise, things quickly spiral out of her control. As she learns more about her captors, she realizes that even if Will and Cassian can carry out their part of the plan, there's no guarantee they'll all make it out alive. But what Jacinda never could have foreseen is that escaping would be only the beginning. . . .

So, this review falls in one of that category: I forgot to review it after reading it.  So, forgive me if my review's not informative, I'm going off of feelings here.

From what I remember with the second one, I was done with being Jacinda's supporter.  Going from one love interest to the next without a care in the world.  It drove me nuts.  So why did I decide to finish this series?  One word: dragons!  It's dragons, come on!

After bonding with Cassian and proclaiming her undying love for Will (**scratches head with a confused look**), she decides she's going to rescue Miram from the dragon killers.  We're kind of thrust into a world of adventure, playing cat and mouse, and discovering dragon talents.  It's a very fun world to read about.

But to the things I didn't like.  The story kind of jumps from one thing to the next.  I don't get a second to think.  And it kind of makes me think that there was no regard for what was happening.  This happened, then this, all were bad; but you the reader will deal with it because you have to.  And I felt that the ending was weak.

Was this the ending I wanted?  I don't think it's what I had in mind, but it wasn't a bad ending.  I enjoyed the story, but I don't think I could absolutely love the characters.

  1. Glad the ending was okay, the dragons were awesome, but I think I couldn't deal with the jumping from one love interest to the other without a care would bother me a lot.
