From Amazon:

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?

First off, I love the title on the cover. The whole cover is pretty, but the title? Nice.

So, Vanish is the second book in this Firelight series. I've been waiting to read this for quite awhile because the last book left us hanging, of course. It seems like they all do. And, after reading this book I'm right back to the same place. Waiting, wondering, knowing how long it will be before I get to read the next book. –sigh->
 A struggle between what a character thinks is best and what a character wants is a common theme in any book. Especially when it comes to love. Jacinda's struggle is no different. The love she feels for Will, her family, and her draki family keeps her torn. It is a struggle most can relate to on some level because we've all been there before in some form or another.

I like the draki element in these books. I actually think I might like to be one! Come on, flying? Special powers? Strength? Yup, sign me up!

The problem with writing a review for this book is that it's almost impossible to say anything more than the summary without giving everything away. I don't want to do that. I will say that I don't like these love triangles. It makes me feel bad when there are two hot and incredible guys after one girl. Why does it always have to be that way? Love triangles. Bleh.

I did really enjoy Vanish. It was a good, fast read that kept my interest from beginning to end. I'll be anxiously awaiting the next book. I just know it's going to be good!

There was some frequent mild swearing and a couple instances of profanity.
