Bryn’s hopes for a peaceful new semester at school go up in smoke when someone tries to kill her—again. She’s not sure which is scarier, facing the radicals who want to sacrifice her for their cause, or her impending nightmare of a Directorate-arranged marriage to her nemesis, Jaxon.The one bright spot in her life is Valmont, her smoking-hot knight who is assigned to watch over her twenty-four hours a day. Is what she feels for him real or just a side effect of the dragon-knight bond? At this point, stopping the impending civil war might be easier than figuring out her love life.She may have to live in their world, but she doesn’t have to play by their rules.Series Order:Going Down in Flames Book 1: Going Down in FlamesGoing Down in Flames Book 2: Bridges BurnedGoing Down in Flames: Book 3: Trial By Fire

“Trial by Fire” by Chris Canon was a good continuation of the series. I feel like this was a much slower book than the first two. Bryn and her dragons are still recovering from the attacks from the other dragons. The school has been partially destroyed and many are injured. Since the dragon society is a big different the blue dragons want all the injured dragons to stay home but Bryn comes up with a different idea. It was great getting back to Bryn and her situation of slowly learning how to live in this new dragon society since she didn’t know previously that she was a dragon. I think the first book was fantastic but for me the series is slowly going downhill. Jaxon and Bryn fight way too much for my taste and this really makes the story drag for me.
