With ex-soldier of St. George 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 organisation 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 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 will not yield
Finally, with this instalment we find out what the grand master plan of Talon really is and when it comes to Ember, it's truly jaw dropping. As if that wasn't enough for Ms Kagawa to throw at us, there's the forces that Talon has been gathering ready to finally crush St. George and the humans; and chilling is the only word that springs to mind. I'm truly enjoying all the action and twists but do question why, yet again in a YA series, we must have a triangle thrust at us?
There's a resolution of sorts here but I can't help but think it wasn't really necessary. Still if you want a story that's inventive and gets your heart pounding then this series is certainly up for the job!
