As far as love triangles go, this one isn't so bad. Honestly, I know I'm in the minority with this, but I don't mind love triangles. Everyone always gripes about them, but if the author does it right and it actually makes sense in the story, then why not?! Here, it's pretty easy to see how it fits. Even though Ember is all dragon, she has a touch of humanity and it connects her to Garrett in a way she can't with Cobalt. They definitely have chemistry and I do so enjoy that whole "forbidden/shouldn't happen" kind of romances. Cobalt, on the otherhand, is a pretty awesome guy/dragon. While Garrett is all broody and serious, Cobalt is playful and enticing. Those moments when Ember and Cobalt's dragon sides were aching to come out and play with each other? Loved them! I really want to see more Cobalt and Ember action and I can only imagine where things will go with them after this book. I honestly don't know who I want her to end up with more.
While I wouldn't necesarily say Rogue is better than Talon, at least for me, I'd definitely say they're on the same page. Rogue has more action and plot development and even though Ember bugged me at times, I still couldn't get enough of the story. This is turning into a solid series so far and I'm so curious as to why the twins are so important to Talon, although I suspect it has something to do with the fact that they're twins, since that never happens in their dragon world. I also liked learning more about Cobalt, his past, and how he decided to start rescuing rogues. Dante really worked my nerves in this one, but I'm hoping he redeems himself in the end. I am definitely looking forward to reading Soldier. Excellent job, Julie!
Ember is a tricky character for me. On on hand, she's fiesty strong and refuses to follow authority blindly, which I love about her. I can easily seeing her becoming a true character to reckon with as she gets a bit more experience under her belt. But that same rebellous nature about her annoyed me as well. Several times throughout the last book and this one as well it felt like she was disobeying and going against what was asked of her just for the sake of "bucking" authority. There were a few times her behaviour/reactions were completely and entirely reckless for no reason other than to be stubborn and reckless it seems. For example, they are on the run from both St. George and Talon at one point, and she is asked to stay put and out of sight for her protection so they don't get caught. Of course, she gets "stir crazy" and goes out risking all their lives just because she was bored. It made her seem selfish and immature, and frankly put me off. I prefer a character to rebell for a purpose rather than immaturity. That being said, she's still very young and naive, and as more and more things happen I have a feeling she'll grow.
I have to admit I'm a bit frustrated with this series. It has all the makings of a completely great read, between the unique world, interesting cast of characters and the rotating first person narrative that really works for me, plus a fast paced plot to boot. However, the execution of everything isn't quite what I had hoped, between the love triangle disconnect, and the overly reckless heroine, I just can't sink into these books as much as I would like. Don't get me wrong, they are interesting and entertaining reads, but I just feel like there's unrealized potential not being met here, but hopefully the future books correct that.
Rogue begins by bringing us to where we last left Ember, Garret was being taken prisoner by St. George and she was adamant to rescue him much to Riley's displeasure and so sets the course for the beginning of the novel. Garret is slated for execution for consorting and aiding the enemy against his fellow brothers-in-arms. And it should be no surprise that Ember and Riley make in the nick of time. For what would our tangled love triangle be without one of the guys around?
Meanwhile, we also continue to get Dante's point of view and he's very deep into Talon now. He is determined to bring his sister back to where she belongs whatever the cost. He believes in Talon's mission and he knows Ember does too, but has been corrupted by Riley and has forgotten her cause. And just wow. It's sad to see Dante so far gone...unless...Julie is up to something here. I never put anything past that author! She's extremely talented that way!
As far as romance goes, this is definitely one of those love triangles that will break hearts everywhere. Torn between Riley and Garret, Ember finds herself in a pickle here. While her human side is all for Garret, her dragon side has all but made her claims on Riley for her mate. We'll just have to wait and see who Ember chooses, there is after all another three books to be had! Though the wait to figure that part out might kill me a bit! I've made my choice, but I can say that it's possible for the other guy to change my mind, but so far in these two books, I've made my claim! LOL!
Ember, Riley, Garret, and Wes work together to find a pair of hatchlings who have escaped Talon. Riley has made it his life's mission to bring Talon down and help out all the dragons and hatchlings who long to escape. But St. George is hot on their trail after their rescue of Garret, and the enemy could be lurking just about anywhere in the shadows. Nowhere is safe.
Pretty epic, right? I will say that this read will totally blow your mind, so be prepared for that! And the ending, ugh! That ending! It's not cliffhanger-y per se, but I definitely didn't like how things ended. And then that epilogue, that just brought up more questions! Sigh...and to top it off, Goodreads has this outrageous notion that Solider, book 3 in the series will release in 2017. Please, someone tell me that is a typo? It has to be a typo! I can't wait that long to come back to this story!!!
Rogue was an astonishingly incredible read! And I did I mention epic, yet? It was totally epic too! This is the read I never knew I wanted until I started reading it! The Talon series is fast becoming my favorite in rival to Julie's Iron Fey Chronicles. I just hope that the wait for the next book isn't as long as I fear it is! My heart can't take it if it is!
Overall Rating 5/5 stars
Ember is on the run after she escaped Talon to join Riley/Cobalt and his group of rogues, making her a rogue herself. Just before escaping Lilith, a Talon assassin, Ember was saved by Garret, the human from St. George and she fears for his life. Determined to save him, she forces Riley/Cobalt to help her. Ember struggles between her human and dragon selves as she struggles with her conflicting feelings for Garret and Riley/Cobalt as they run and hide from their enemies. All the while coming to terms with what it truly means of being a rogue.
Garret has been named a traitor to the Order of St. George because he helped Ember escaped both Talon and the Order, and by doing so he is sentenced to death. But Garret does not regret his actions as he knows the truth and can’t fight for the Order anymore. After being rescued by Ember and Riley/Cobalt, Garret has joined them as he struggles to understand who he is besides a solider. All the while, he is helping Ember and group dodge from their enemies.
Riley/Cobalt is trying to keep Ember and other rogues safe from both Talon and St. George. However, Ember has become a distraction and yet he can’t let her go. He’s not happy that Garret has joined his group and his closeness to Ember makes his inner dragon all fired up. To add to Riley/Cobalt’s stress of Ember, Garret, his responsibilities and his many enemies, he learns of a mole within his underground network and is eager to find him.
We also have a new point of view character; Dante, Ember’s brother who has been given the task of finding her and returning her to Talon. While he is angry for Ember abandoning him and everything he has planned for them, he wants her to return. He also deeply hates Cobalt for his role in her leaving. Knowing that Cobalt is a threat to Talon, Dante and his team have put together a plan that will eliminate Cobalt as a threat and return Ember to Talon.
The love triangle in this book is amazing. Ember is a dragon, Garret is a human and a solider of St. George and yet they both have feelings for each other. However, Ember has a more trougher struggle with her feelings as her feelings conflict with her human and dragon selves. Garret loves her human self while Riley/Cobalt loves her dragon self and both guys call to her equally.
I still love the characters. Ember is fiery, passionate, loyal, strong and rebellious. Garret has changed since his was first introduced as he is against what he was taught to believe in and has joined Ember’s group. Riley/Cobalt is still the great bad boy but loyal rogue leader, but we see more of the leader as he is trying to keep everyone safe, especially Ember. I find Wes funny but sometimes annoying. Dante is blindly loyal to Talon and it’s very upsetting, however, inside Dante’s head allows me to get some insight into Talon other than Ember and Riley/Cobalt.
Overall, Rogue was breathtaking and incredible. Julie Kagawa did not disappoint by delivering this amazing sequel of her newest series. It is breathtaking. I still love the multiple points of views as it provides more of the story being played out through the eyes and emotions of multiple characters. We learn about Cobalt’s past and what lead up to him becoming a rogue and a little more understanding into what kind of organization Talon is. There was more action, more romance and more of the world of Talon being revealed as the characters start to figure out where they stand. The ending left me with questions that must be answered. I cannot wait for the next book.
Downside; the next book doesn't come out itll NEXT YEAR! Waaaah! I need to know what happens!
This series is about dragons, living in today's world. Amongst us, so to speak. It's a different take on things and I really like it. I found myself liking the characters and the story line lots more than I expected to.
Definitely a good read if you like YA and fantasy. I'm not one for spoilers, so that's all I need to say.
