My Review:
This series just gets better and better. I really enjoyed Talon and I enjoyed Rogue even more.It has all the elements I enjoyed from Talon as well as new elements, characters and story that make it that much better.

The books starts with Garrett in St George custody and Ember, with the help of Riley and Wes, determined to get him out.

There is a lot of action in this book so I was literally on the edge of my seat for my most of it, and when there wasn't action as such, there brewing intrigue so the edge of that seat stayed warm the entire way through the novel.

I loved that whilst you always knew there more going that what was in front of you, you never quite knew exactly how this was going to play out so it created an air of anticipation and exhilaration for most of the book as you waited to see what happened. Ms Kagawa paces this out well and does not disappoint with the outcome which leaves us hanging for the next book and needing to see where this story will go next.

I love the chemistry between Ember and Garrett even though it is a slightly more awkward chemistry in this book as they were now well aware of their differences as dragon and for human former soldier and St George but I still feel this chemistry more than I do the chemistry between Ember and Riley, though I did feel that a little bit more towards the end.

I also like Ember's development in this novel as she realises what it truly means to be rogue and everything that comes with it danger and freedom both and the consequences of decision to go rogue are played out and she has to deal with them.

This is a truly worthy second novel in this series and I am extremely excited to see where the Talon saga is going to go from here. Bring on book 3!

An awesome second book. I loved it and give it 4 stars!

About The Book:

Rogue (Talon #2) by Julie Kagawa

Ember Hill left the dragon organization Talon to take her chances with rebel dragon Cobalt and his crew of rogues. But Ember can't forget the sacrifice made for her by the human boy who could have killed her—Garret Xavier Sebastian, a soldier of the dragonslaying Order of St. George, the boy who saved her from a Talon assassin, knowing that by doing so, he'd signed his own death warrant.

Determined to save Garret from execution, Ember must convince Cobalt to help her break into the Order's headquarters. With assassins after them and Ember's own brother helping Talon with the hunt, the rogues find an unexpected ally in Garret and a new perspective on the underground battle between Talon and St. George.

A reckoning is brewing and the secrets hidden by both sides are shocking and deadly. Soon Ember must decide: Should she retreat to fight another day…or start an all-out war?
