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.
Trial by Fire has a lot of secrets and mysteries that are revealed. The attacks are still happening at the Institute and it turns out that there are more Hybrids that no one knew about until now. I'm loving the direction that this series is going. The relationships are one of my favorite things in this series. I love how close Bryn is becoming with her grandparents. They aren't as cold and stony as we thought. I'm really enjoying the interactions between Bryn and Jaxon. They make a really great team. And Valmont! The dragon-knight bond is stronger than ever and I'm hoping that they never decide to break it. There's just so much to love about this book. I wish I had the next one right now!

  1. I've been meaning to read this but haven't gotten the change to yet, but hopefully it turns out good! Also, we used to have the same template as you! we couldn't figure out how to get the pictures to stop stretching so much though, how were you able to do it?

    Anyways, my friend and I just started our blog where we review books and beauty products and we'd love it if you could check it out and let us know what you think!


    1. You should definitely check out the book. I think that each one get better and better. But there have been mixed reviews for this one, so...

      As far as the template goes, I didn't have to do anything. Maybe the template you downloaded was corrupted in some way? Maybe try downloading it again and re-uploading it?

      I'll definitely check out your blog! Thanks so much for visiting mine!

    2. P.S. Do you have a link for your blog?
