Gr 8 Up—This modern-day fantasy picks up right where Talon (Harlequin Teen, 2014) left off. Ember must convince Cobalt to help her rescue Garrett from what she believes will be his certain death. These three unlikely allies find themselves running from Talon and St. George operatives and fighting for both their lives and those of others. Told from multiple perspectives, this narrative will give readers more insight about the mysterious rogue dragon Cobalt, and will have them connecting with Dante (Ember's twin) as he rises through the ranks in the very organization Ember repudiates. With romance taking a backseat to action and character backstory, this is a sequel that will leave readers waiting impatiently for the third installment.
VERDICT A worthwhile read for fans of Talon and Kagawa's other action-packed and satisfying fantasies.
