Review: Vanish

Title: Vanish
Firelight # 2
Author: Sophie Jordan
Pages: 294
Release Date: September 6, 2011
Publisher: Harper Teen

Goodreads Description:

An impossible romance.
Bitter rivalries.
Deadly choices.

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?

My Thoughts:

Vanish was by far my favorite book in the Firelight series by Sophie Jordan. I finished Hidden before writing this review so I can say that with certainty. For me, the series as a whole was just okay but I did enjoy this book quite a bit.

Vanish picks up right where Firelight left off. Everyone is kind of on edge due to the events at the end of Firelight. There are a lot of things up in the air and everyone is filled with a sense of uncertainty.

One of the things I liked about Vanish is that since it picks up right where Firelight ended, things are immediately interesting. You don’t have to go through several chapters to get to the action. You are immediately there.

The second thing I liked, actually loved, about Vanish was Cassian. Seriously, I loved him! He is the reason that I enjoyed this book. He cares about Jacinda for all the right reason and she doesn’t even realize it! He was a good guy that tried to do the right thing for Jacinda and the rest of the pride. Although Jacinda always thought that Cassian was just like his father she realizes in this book that it isn’t the case. Honestly, I don’t understand why Cassian doesn’t leave her to be with Tamra. In this book I thought Tamra was the more interesting sister. Jacinda was too woe with me.

Again, Jacinda got on my nerves with her back and forth, flip and a flopping attitude. She was confused and conflicted. I get it! Every time Cassian is around we don’t have to have the same inner dialogue. I got tired of hearing about her missing Will but wanting to try to be with Cassian anyway. Then of course there was the guilt Jacinda felt about Tamra liking Cassian. That too was annoying. For those of you wondering, Will does make an appearance in this book so there is still hope for a Will/Jacinda outcome. 

The plot in this book was action paced and there was always something going on. I read it very quickly and was anxious to see how things would end. Vanish left off on another cliffhanger so I was glad that I already had Hidden there and waiting for me!
