I finished the story. Just about the time I was going to delete the story from my kindle, it turned around. She still seems to have to have some guy to be worthy but the rest of this cliffhanger was riveting to me. I give this a 3.5. I am waiting for the next book. If the author wants to edit anything edit out the first half whining.
I throughly enjoyed this book. I had read the first book, Going Down in Flames, and I liked it. I thought it had been an enjoyable read-I liked the book and was interested to see where Chris Cannon went with it, so when I got the opportunity to review the second book, I took it. I’m glad I did, because I enjoyed the second book more than the first.
Bryn has it rough in this book. From her relationship with Zavien-which, can I just say was a terrible mistake on her part; I mean, he is already promised to this other girl, and he makes vague promises of them running away together. Basically, he is an a**hole. He pissed me off, let me tell you. I believe some of my Goodreads updates were along the lines of “Zavien is a jerk” to “Zavien is now upgraded to a**hole” to “So Bryn needs to just date Valmont because he’s a hottie and cares for her, and ditch Zavien, who is an a**”. I developed a bit of a loathing for Zavien, if you couldn’t tell. But back to Bryn-her relationship with Zavien is a good part of the first half of the book. That, along with attacks on the school, we see how their relationship just down spirals, and becomes more friendly with Jaxon.
Her solace, however, is her knight, Valmont-the first knight in a century or so. He helps relax her, and let her know that he will be whatever she wants him to be-friend, boyfriend, lover, whatever. I just absolutely love him. I wish that they would hook up already! But there is the complication of her grandparents checking her lineage with Jaxon’s (read: marriage contract), so that puts a crimp in my plans for the two.
While a good focus of the book is on Bryn’s differing relationships with these three men, another aspect of the book is Bryn trying to fit into this archaic and controlling society that doesn’t quite accept her because of her crossbreed heritage. While she tries to adapt to a certain extent, she still tries to be herself which is what I like about her most, I think. She tries to adapt mainly for the benefit of her grandparents, who she is trying to get on better terms with (their relationship is another interesting part of this book).
There was so much action and heartbreak in this book, that I just throughly enjoyed myself while reading it. It was hard to put down!
Would I recommend? YES. Though, read the Going Down in Flames first, otherwise you won’t understand what is going on.
Dragon society is vastly different from human society. For instance, dragons are paired so that the best genes produce off-springs. They have a herd mentality, if you will and it is truly about survival of their kind. Bryn decides instead of accepting this to fight it. Not everyone will be on her side though. Her enemy becomes her friend and some friends end up being enemies.
Bryn’s love life is a mess. Mainly because Zavien is being a jerk. I am really hoping that his attitude is to protect Bryn because I really don’t understand it. He was so sweet and kind in the first book that now he just- well I kinda wanted to punch him in the face. Which would not have been good, although he does deserve it.
Bryn is different and sometimes different is good. She brings with her change- change for herself and for the Directorate.
Bridges Burned is the perfect second book in a trilogy. It allows the story to move along at a great pace and there is a ton of character building. There are questions left to be answered and new ones created. But mostly there is a sense of urgency for the third book to already be released.
