Trial By Fire by Chris Cannon
RELEASE DAY BLITZ
April 4, 2016
Bryn’s hopes for a peaceful new semester at school go up in smoke when someone tries to kill her—again. She’s not sure which is scarier, facing the radicals who want to sacrifice her for their cause, or her impending nightmare of a Directorate-arranged marriage to her nemesis, Jaxon.
The one bright spot in her life is Valmont, her smoking-hot knight who is assigned to watch over her twenty-four hours a day. Is what she feels for him real or just a side effect of the dragon-knight bond? At this point, stopping the impending civil war might be easier than figuring out her love life.
She may have to live in their world, but she doesn’t have to play by their rules.
Holy cannoli this was just about non-stop action! I absolutely adored Bryn and Valmont once again, and appreciated the growth of not only their friendship, but of each of them individually. The mysteries remain as this wasn’t actually the last book, and for me it ended way too soon! I simply can not stand the anxiety of not knowing what’s to become of my lovelies! That said, this was once again a fun-filled fantasy action romance with major wit and humor to spare. There are some interesting developments with Jaxon as well, though to avoid spoilers I’ll keep my questions to myself and assume they will be answered next time. Chris Cannon draws you in to dragonland with tons of nail-biting and a bit of swooning. All while reminding us that some kids have it way easier when it comes to dressing and glamming it up (Quintessence anyone?)
