An impossible romance.
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?
Oh, Jacinda. You make me feel so darn angsty – but I love it!
Sometimes novels end and “leave things open” just in case a second or third novel get picked up. When that happens sometimes I don’t feel like I’m about to burst because I want/need to know what’s going to happen. This was NOT the case with Firelight and Vanish. Firelight ended and all I could think about was “Wait. WHAT?! NO! What happens next!” and boy did I get my answer in Vanish.
I’ll tell you what happens in the most non-spoilery way I can.
1. Characters change. Both good and bad ways.
2. Kissing, kissing, and more kissing. Oh, and pining too.
3. Those dirty hunters!
4. Heartbreak. More than one!
5. More world building! (Loved loved loved the world building of the Pride in this book!)
I loved every minute of Vanish and I can’t wait to see what’s to come in this amazing story!
Like I said, it does pick up right where Firelight left off so if it’s been a while since you’ve read Firelight, you might want to brush up on it.
