Bridges Burned by Chris Cannon Review and Release Day

Title: Bridges Burned (Book 2)
Author: Chris Cannon
Release Date: January 27, 2015

Don’t just fight the system…burn it.
Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…
But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn’t a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.
Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.

My Review:

4 out of 5 stars

Chris Cannon gave me a new obsession in Going Down in flames. I loved the concept of dragons and knights in a series. It is something different and unique that I liked right away. What was even better is Bryn because she is a hybrid (Red and Blue) dragon. I love what these dragons can do. Each color has a specific breath you could say. Red is fire, Blue is ice, Orange is sonic waves, Black is lighting, and Green is wind. The bad thing that is going on is that these dragons are seriously stuck in the old ways. They are completely segregated and stuck in a social class just by their color. The Blues are powerful, rich, and they create the laws and decide the rules for all. Bryn is seen as a mistake and a challenge against the Directorate, which are the rulers of the dragon society (Blues mostly).

As we saw in the previous book, the Revisionist are trying to change the law. Zavien is a part of them and we saw him a lot in book one. I really like him. In this book not so much. I kind of hated him. It was so weird how I went from liking him to hating him real quick. He was rude and a liar! I mean he was with Bryn constantly and then all of a sudden he just became fake and stayed with Nola. Ok let me explain a little. The dragons have to submit a petition to be accepted to marry someone. How crazy is that?! Well you have to marry someone in your clan. Zavien is black so therefore he must marry a black dragon. He told Bryn that he wanted to change the law to be with her but in this book he became distant and I did not like him at all.

Now I hated Jaxon so much in the first book but in this book I actually came to like him and respect him. He became a good character even though at times he would be his snobby self but that is explainable because Blues are raised to be that way. Now the one I really came to love was Valmont, Bryn's knight. So the dragons can have knights but this hasn't happened in a long time but of course Bryn activated Valmont as her knight so now he became her night. I absolutely love Valmont because he is kind, always there for Bryn, and he will do anything for her. His personality and his actions won me over. Now I am going Team Valmont all the way. Forget about Zavien and his lies, give me Valmont!

As for the storyline and the book itself, I think it lacked something because it didn't really have a huge purpose. It needed more of an action. Ok so yeah they are trying to solve who the crazy Revisionist are that are trying to attack the school but I think it needed a little more purpose and plan. And I really want to know who keeps trying to kill Bryn! Poor girl it is not her fault that she is a hybrid. At least her parents were actually in love and not subjected to the Directorate rules! Im just ready for the next book to see which dragons are in charge of the attacks that are going on.
