Summary: 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? In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.

 

Review: I really want to support a local author, but unfortunately, I just couldn’t honestly say that I liked this book.

This book is SO heavily emotionally bogged down. The first eight chapters of the book was about her whining and wallowing in self pity. (View spoiler on my Goodreads.) On and on. It was just too much.

There were times I was just dying to know what happens next, (View spoiler on my Goodreads.) and I kept waiting and waiting until Jordan got to the point.

Don’t get me wrong. I admire an author who is able to describe emotions to where the reader empathizes and sympathizes with the characters. But I would say about 85-90% of the book was about Jacinda’s emotions – to the point where readers are just overburdened by the same thoughts over and over again.

Otherwise, the book was about… MAJOR SPOILER! (View spoiler on my Goodreads.Oh yeah, and there was a face-off with a bear.

And it ended so abruptly, that I was wondering if I was missing the rest of the story. It wasn’t exactly a cliffhanger, but it just kind of… stopped.

By the way, I liked Will from book 1, but after all of that thinking that Jacinda does, I have decided I like Casian much better. And I always thought he was more than what Jordan gave him credit for in the first book. I will be royally pissed if Jacinda ends up with Will.
