Deserter. Traitor. Rogue.

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? 


As everyone aware already, I have been a big fan of JULIE KAGAWA since I read her Iron Fey Series . She has a way that has you relating to characters, their emotions, despite fact that it’s a fictional book. I had read novels about dragons before this series and I liked them but once I read this series, I fell in love with them. JULIE KAGAWA is unlike any novel about dragons that I have read. It deals with dragon organization, Talon, dragons blending as human, rogue dragons. How can you not love a book like that? Even though I had loved TALON my love for series grew more once I read ROGUE . I feel as if there was more going on, and more action in ROGUE then there was in first book of series. Ever since I read the first book, I was curious to see what would happen with Ember, Garret and Riley next. Especially after what happened at end of Talon. There was a lot going in this book and I was so invested by their stories that I had hard time putting it down.

Love triangles, of course that is nothing new when it comes to books like these. I usually love them but I do wish Ember would just choose. I know that Riley and Ember would be the right choice considering that the both of them are dragons, but at the same time I see how much Garret loves Ember and fact that he doesn’t care that she’s a dragon, not anymore. That should say something shouldn’t it? Even though I do love Riley, well I learned to love him more after reading this book. I am still leaning towards Ember ending up with Garrett. The two of them have a special connection, which is something that Riley and Ember don’t have, at least in my opinion. I had feeling she would be torn apart especially once Riley confessed how much he cares about her, which is unlike him. I did feel myself as sad as Ember when Garrett left and I am curious if he actually stay or if he end up coming back.

Even if there were some questions that were answered in this book, I feel more you read this series, you will end up with new questions. JULIE KAGAWA has a way of ending her book with cliffhanger that has you craving for the next book. I wanted to know what would happen with Garrett, what he would discover. If he would come back or stay away. I loved fact that Riley’s past in Talon was added into this book. I could understand him more afterwards and know why he acts way he way. It was interesting to go in his past while he was still in Talon. I was always interested the real reason that he went Rogue and once I read it, I couldn’t blame him for wanting out. As for Dante, I loved that character and I hoped that maybe he see that Talon has been lying and join his sister, but after this book, I am not sure that it is going happen anytime soon. I can see how dedicated he is to Talon. I do feel heartbroken for Ember, considering he was only family that she had left. I am eager to see if he stays with organization or see it what it is.

ROGUE will have you on edge of your seat, from start to the end. You will find yourself falling in love with the story, the characters even more. I can’t wait to see what’s in store next for Ember, Riley and Garrett. What obstacles they will have to face next.
