The biggest mistake was that I bought both books in the series at the one time on special. Oh Well - lesson learnt.I often enjoy YA books eg. Hunger Games, however I do get tired of the same old plots in different scenery filled with angst and girls who like to think they are strong and have it all together but are indecisive and scatterbrains and can't decide which boy they will love. From the beginning this book was travelling on a downward spiral and I was disappointed because the concept was a new one for me.Yes, I acknowledge that it's my mistake - I should have looked into it a bit further before buying it.
The only thing that saved this book from refund was Therese Plummer's excellent narration. I would never have finished either book if I had to read them.
Jacinda and her sister. Both very annoying.
Not for me.
The first book in the series made me need to read the rest.
The plot was interesting and exciting.
Hate to give away the story, but I loved Tamra's changes and Cassian's continued involvement and determination to win Jucinda.
I do not have a comparison.
Therese Plummer is superb at changing characters. You know exactly who is speaking when she performs and she has made each character come to life.
Not extreme, but there were some "yeah!" moments. Tamra evolving, the grey draqui being able to finally change and then the understory of him and Tamra.
Yes, I love this series. The story is more in modern times, so it's nice to think that dragons, or draki exist in this time frame.
When Tamra and Jessinda talk and make up.
Always coming back.....even if it's for the worse.
While well written, the story is frustrating. This should be an EMO book, the main character takes everything on that everyone else causes as her responsibility. Constantly self loathing when she does what she should be doing and other people mess it up.
If the author would stop with the constant self loathing, it would be a good book.
The book does not have an end and seems to be designed to trap you into buying book after book to see how it ends.
Yes, I am a 45 year old man and romantic teen novels are not my thing, but I must have a conclusion to the story. The writing is interesting enough to make me want to know how everything turns out.
Yes, because the reader is clear and pleasant to listen to while you just sit back and relax.
Listening to the book allows me to lay down and imagine the world and story being read to me.
It made me mad. The only thing I did not like about this book is how the author made the main character DUMB. It seems like every book I read now a days that has a girl for a main character, is portrayed as being a idiot. For example, this girl can breath fire and not take crap from anyone. And yet the author makes her weak and indecisive.
If you are the author of this book or any other books, I suggest making your main characters intelligent and not weak cloudy minded characters.
Vanish took a little while to get into- but once I was pulled in I couldnt tear myself away!
This is the second in a series and sadly ends in a similar cliffhanger that the first did. The book doesn't offer a complete picture. It immediately picked up form the first book without giving you any back story and then ends without any conclusion. Is the author just trying to get you to buy another book?
I fell for it once, but am now getting off the cycle and will never have any closure for the characters.
