PUBLISHER: Entangled – Teen
DATE PUBLISHED: 04th April 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.
What… another love interest for Bryn!!! Well, I wasn’t sure I could be shocked again with this series but I have been proved wrong. This is the third instalment in the Going Down in Flames series featuring Bryn. A wild ride of amazing dragon drama.
At this time it feels like I am returning to school and catching up with old friends. It’s a similar feeling to what I felt when I read the Harry Potter series. I am binge reading this series and loving every single minute.
There is a strong focus on Valmont, Bryn and their knight – dragon connection. I feel Valmont is a viable option for Bryn and a good balance for her snark. I can only compare this to Throne of Glass where I am torn between male love interests as each new book unfolds.
The politics and school are also touched upon and are an element that I particularly enjoy with this series. There is the betrothal that is touched upon again and really pushed when Bryn meets her grandparents.
There you go… Harry Potter meets Throne of Glass with dragons. What are you waiting for?
Keep Calm and Read On,
