Hidden (Firelight # 3 )
By Sophie Jordan
Jacinda was supposed to bond with Cassian, the "prince" of their pride. But she resisted long before she fell in love with Will—a human and, worse, a hunter. When she ran away with Will, it ended in disaster, with Cassian's sister, Miram, captured. Weighed down by guilt, Jacinda knows she must rescue her to set things right. Yet to do so she will have to venture deep into the heart of enemy territory.
The only way Jacinda can reach Miram is by posing as a prisoner herself, though once she assumes that disguise, things quickly spiral out of her control. As she learns more about her captors, she realizes that even if Will and Cassian can carry out their part of the plan, there's no guarantee they'll all make it out alive. But what Jacinda never could have foreseen is that escaping would be only the beginning....
Loyalties are tested and sacrifices made in the explosive conclusion to Sophie Jordan's Firelight trilogy.
First of all I must say that the covers for all three of these books are swoon worthy, they capture the imagination right of the bat. I like this series, and this book did not disappoint. Jacinda is a Draki a descendant of dragons that have a more human appearance. Jacinda is very special among her kind because she is a fire breather and those are very rare. Jacinda's clan has big plans for her and wants her to bond with Cassian a powerful male Draki that is the son of the clan's leader. But Jacinda has other plans and has fallen in love with a human named Will.
In this book enemies have to work together, relationships are tested and the series comes to an abrupt end. Jacinda, Will, and Cassian must find a way to work together and reascue Cassian's sister Mirim.
I was on the edge of my seat for much of this book and had a hard time putting it down. Jacinda is forced to bond with Cassian at the end of the last book and the mix of emotions that Jacinda had to feel were described perfectly. Jacinda can feel everything that Cassian feels including his disdain for Will and his confusion as to why Jacinda doesn't want him. The three are set against the Enkors who are the enemies of the Draki. While the book isn't the best thing I've ever read it was well worth the read and I am sad to see the series end. I think the way that it ended could have been hugely improved upon, but the story telling is very good.
All in all this is a great series with a really bad ending, well worth the read. If you haven't entered the world of Firelight yet and don't have a book you have been dying to read this series is worth picking up.
