Ember Hill left the dragon organization Talon to take her chances with rebel dragon Cobalt and his crew of rogues. But Ember can't forget the sacrifice made for her by the human boy who could have killed her - Garret Xavier Sebastian, a soldier of the dragon-slaying Order of St. George, the boy who saved her from a Talon assassin, knowing that by doing so he'd signed his own death warrant.
Determined to save Garret from execution, Ember must convince Cobalt to help her break into the order's headquarters. With assassins after them and Ember's own brother helping Talon with the hunt, the rogues find an unexpected ally in Garret and a new perspective on the underground battle between Talon and St. George.
A reckoning is brewing, and the secrets hidden by both sides are shocking and deadly. Soon Ember must decide: Should she retreat to fight another day...or start an all-out war?

Amazing and Breathtaking
The narrators who brought the characters to life. The story, the plot and everything.
Caitlin Davies from the Penryn and the End of Days series. MacLeod Andrews from The Iron Knight. Both are as great in this book as they were in their previous performances.
I loved it with every chapter. I've laughed, cried, got angry, experienced emotion and longing for the next book.

Julie Kagawa Does it AGAIN!
Yes, I really enjoy this series and once all of the books have been released I am going to listen to them again in order back to back. Time always flies when listening to these books!
Ember because she reminds me of myself. She cares about her friends and family deeply and she fights for them. However, she never lets them push her around and she makes some pretty mature decisions for a 16 year old girl.
Each of the narrators did a wonderful job. They displayed the perfect balance of emotion and made it easier to feel their emotions. You really feel like you are getting into each character's mind to understand how they think -- no matter which narrator is speaking.
Yes, there were several -- most of them had to do with the former St. George soldier Garret and how he was dealing with the fact that not all Dragons are heartless killers. His character changed the most during this book and it was fun to watch.
If you like dragons and you don't mind thinking out of the box this book series is amazing. It is set in our modern world and is a little bit different than what I am traditionally used to seeing. However, this story is amazing and the characters are vibrant. I recommend reading/listening to Talon prior. It is the first book in the series and amazing as well.
