Soldier by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ember Hill is standing behind her decision to be a rogue dragon and now she and Riley are on the run and trying to uncover the deepest and darkest secrets about Talon. She misses her twin brother, Dante, but since he chose to stay with Talon there seems to be no other choice. Garret, the human soldier that started Ember questioning her beliefs, is secretly watching the Order of St. George and has now discovered secrets that will rattle the views of dragons and dragonslayers around the world. Will either order survive the turmoil that has been set in motion? Will Ember need to choose between Garret and Riley for her heart’s desire?
Soldier is the third book in the Talon series. Events pick up shortly after the conclusion of Rogue and readers will not be able to get the full experience unless they have read the first two books. Kagawa has a few mental clues interspersed within the storyline to help returning readers and they were enough for me to jar free the feelings I kept from a year ago. The action is intense and the emotional rollercoaster is plausible as Ember struggles between her human emotions and her dragon instincts. A great continuation and I will be looking forward to the fourth book when it is released.
