Poor Bryn just doesn’t have any luck when she is at school. People are still trying to kill her, and now she might just have to marry Jaxon *shudders*.
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.
Bryn is no longer with Zavien in this book, after the events that took place in Bridges Burned (#2), which I’m sort of thankful for. I didn’t particularly care for him. Instead, she becomes more romantically entangled with Valmont, her knight, which is a big old complication, seeing as she will probably have to marry Jaxon. But even that relationship is complicated by their dragon-knight bond. Honestly, her love life is a little too complicated.
On top of that, she has to deal with someone trying to kill her—again. Honestly, with the number of times the radicals have tried to kill her, you would think there would be better protection. *shrugs*
I enjoyed this book, but I don’t think it was my favorite out of the three. It was good, and it kept the plot moving. It will be interesting to see what happens next. At the very least, maybe they can take down the Directorate (such a Medieval group of people).
Thank you Mark My Words Publicity for giving me the opportunity to review this book. This book releases April 4, 2016.
My Rating: 3/5 stars
