Burning Bright by Chris Cannon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Chris Cannon soars with BURNING BRIGHT, the fifth book in the Going Down in Flame series. It is Bryn’s senior year at the Institute for Excellence. Someone is sucking the life force out of the dragons to gain their powers. In addition, she needs to spend more time with Jaxon now that they are betrothed. This shape-shifting dragon fantasy is suitable for young adult audiences.
I loved this story. Bryn has come a long way since book one, GOING DOWN IN FLAMES. BURNING BRIGHT takes place three months after the Rebel dragons attacked the campus and all the fallout that followed. Her parents along with the hybrid dragons have been moved to a town called Sanctuary.
Bryn has begun to take medic classes. She is studying Quintessence. The Silver dragons attaching the student body is the perfect storyline to go along with this since the silvers use Quintessence in a negative self-serving manner.
Bryn and Jaxon get to know each other better. I like that they open-up to one another. It’s a bit of a struggle at times. Jaxon is still devastated over Rhianna’s death. Bryn misses her knight, Valmont. Bryn’s grandmother and Jaxon’s mother, Lillith, give Bryn a lot of advice throughout the story on how to handle being married to a Blue and what is to be expected. Bryn and Lillith turn out to have a few things in common. I like that Jaxon is more open-minded then the stereotypical male blue dragon. For example, he admits his faults. I appreciated Bryn’s Christmas present to Jaxon. I adored that the two become a team.
Chris Cannon does an amazing job with both her character development and plot. The series is creative and full of action. I love all the changes that Bryn helped to make their dragon society a better and more equal place. I don’t want Bryn’s story to end. I would love to see a spin-off series of her college years. Going Down in Flames is an amazing series. The Going Down in Flames series would make an excellent movie or television series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
