Review: Vanish by Sophie Jordan

Vanish by Sophie Jordan
Release Date: September 6, 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: YA Paranormal

The Story: To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.

Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?

My Review: Vanish starts out in a scene that is as unforgettable and hooking as it is frightening. From there, it's non-stop action and intensity. When Jacinda returns to her pride, she mistakes a huge mistake that changes things for not only her but her family as well. It's not pretty. 

Things are also not easy between Cassien and Jacinda. Will shows no signs of backing down from his constant pursuit of her, and none of this makes her life any easier. But if there is anything to be said about Jacinda, it's that she's a strong, dynamic character. She's not one to give up and it's not surprise to see her fight through her struggles. It's admirable when so many other female characters seem to lack this attribute. 

This book is complete and utter chaos from the beginning and it doesn't stop until you read the last page. The Draki and Hunters waste no time sucking you back into this story and not releasing you. It's seriously a book that you'll tear through and read in record time. 

Jordan kept me in a constant state of surprise/shock/holy crap while reading this one. It should come as no surprise then that I absolutely loved Vanish.

My Rating:
**P.S. This review should have gone up MUCH earlier today but blogger hated me today. I apologize profusely for the late hour!!

  1. I read the first book but I wasn't really that into it.

    Do you know if Vanish is the last book or is there another to follow?

  5. I thought reading books like this will be boring or something, but when I started reading and fall in the characters, I realized that I’m starting not just to like it but I fell in love with the book.
