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? 

In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.

This book came in with a huge disappointment. Firelight was one of my favourites in 2010 but Vanish is definitely my least in 2011. I just felt the plot was rushed through and Jacinda's actions weren’t rational.

However in this book, the love triangle had left me wondering: which team am I on? In Firelight, I was team Will all the way. But I felt myself leaning towards Cassian in this instalment. I shouldn’t be like that. Once I pick a team, I should never go back to the opposite team. I am with Jacinda that it is a tough choice.

I was expecting more depth into the draki's world. More history aspect to it. It wasn’t there.

Anyways, I will be anticipating the 3rd instalment because I know it will be good as the first.
