Gr 8 Up—This modern-day fantasy picks up right where Talon (Harlequin Teen, 2014) left off. Ember must convince Cobalt to help her rescue Garrett from what she believes will be his certain death. These three unlikely allies find themselves running from Talon and St. George operatives and fighting for both their lives and those of others. Told from multiple perspectives, this narrative will give readers more insight about the mysterious rogue dragon Cobalt, and will have them connecting with Dante (Ember's twin) as he rises through the ranks in the very organization Ember repudiates. With romance taking a backseat to action and character backstory, this is a sequel that will leave readers waiting impatiently for the third installment. VERDICT A worthwhile read for fans of Talon and Kagawa's other action-packed and satisfying fantasies.—Stephanie DeVincentis, Downers Grove North High School, IL
"Action-packed drama meets character-driven tension in this follow-up to Talon...the dragon/human dynamic adds the perfect amount of strain to a relationship that seems otherwise perfect." -RT Book Reviews
"Readers will breathlessly anticipate Kagawa's next." -Booklist

As far as love triangles go, this one isn't so bad. Honestly, I know I'm in the minority with this, but I don't mind love triangles. Everyone always gripes about them, but if the author does it right and it actually makes sense in the story, then why not?! Here, it's pretty easy to see how it fits. Even though Ember is all dragon, she has a touch of humanity and it connects her to Garrett in a way she can't with Cobalt. They definitely have chemistry and I do so enjoy that whole "forbidden/shouldn't happen" kind of romances. Cobalt, on the otherhand, is a pretty awesome guy/dragon. While Garrett is all broody and serious, Cobalt is playful and enticing. Those moments when Ember and Cobalt's dragon sides were aching to come out and play with each other? Loved them! I really want to see more Cobalt and Ember action and I can only imagine where things will go with them after this book. I honestly don't know who I want her to end up with more.
While I wouldn't necesarily say Rogue is better than Talon, at least for me, I'd definitely say they're on the same page. Rogue has more action and plot development and even though Ember bugged me at times, I still couldn't get enough of the story. This is turning into a solid series so far and I'm so curious as to why the twins are so important to Talon, although I suspect it has something to do with the fact that they're twins, since that never happens in their dragon world. I also liked learning more about Cobalt, his past, and how he decided to start rescuing rogues. Dante really worked my nerves in this one, but I'm hoping he redeems himself in the end. I am definitely looking forward to reading Soldier. Excellent job, Julie!
Ember is a tricky character for me. On on hand, she's fiesty strong and refuses to follow authority blindly, which I love about her. I can easily seeing her becoming a true character to reckon with as she gets a bit more experience under her belt. But that same rebellous nature about her annoyed me as well. Several times throughout the last book and this one as well it felt like she was disobeying and going against what was asked of her just for the sake of "bucking" authority. There were a few times her behaviour/reactions were completely and entirely reckless for no reason other than to be stubborn and reckless it seems. For example, they are on the run from both St. George and Talon at one point, and she is asked to stay put and out of sight for her protection so they don't get caught. Of course, she gets "stir crazy" and goes out risking all their lives just because she was bored. It made her seem selfish and immature, and frankly put me off. I prefer a character to rebell for a purpose rather than immaturity. That being said, she's still very young and naive, and as more and more things happen I have a feeling she'll grow.
I have to admit I'm a bit frustrated with this series. It has all the makings of a completely great read, between the unique world, interesting cast of characters and the rotating first person narrative that really works for me, plus a fast paced plot to boot. However, the execution of everything isn't quite what I had hoped, between the love triangle disconnect, and the overly reckless heroine, I just can't sink into these books as much as I would like. Don't get me wrong, they are interesting and entertaining reads, but I just feel like there's unrealized potential not being met here, but hopefully the future books correct that.
