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?
In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.

Forbidden romance my ass. Pardon my language. I mean, I normally love that whole “I want you but I can’t have you oh woe is me” thing, but in these books? I’m on the other team.
HELLO, Jacinda. You cannot be with a human. Especially one that hunts your dragon people. Move on. It’s doomed, child, can’t you see that? And Cassian, that hunkfest, is right there waiting for you. Get your draki on, girl!*
Sorry, I feel quite strongly. BECAUSE I LOVE THIS SERIES.
It’s totally enjoyable in a way that makes dragons like…sexy. I know. I can’t believe I wrote that on the Internet either. I hope you guys all give it a try!
* For those watching Nine Lives of Chloe King, this is also how I feel on the Brian/Alek matter. SHE CAN’T KISS HUMANS! Why torture yourself? Gross.
