When forced to choose between safety with the dragon organization Talon and being hunted forever as an outcast, Ember Hill chose to stand with Riley and his band of rogue dragons rather than become an assassin for Talon. She's lost any contact with her twin brother, Dante, a Talon devotee, as well as Garret, the former-enemy soldier who challenged her beliefs about her human side.

As Ember and Riley hide and regroup to fight another day, Garret journeys alone to the United Kingdom, birthplace of the ancient and secret Order of St. George, to spy on his former brothers and uncover deadly and shocking secrets that will shake the foundations of dragons and dragon-slayers alike and place them all in imminent danger as Talon's new order rises.

I'll admit, I begrudgingly assumed the plot was gonna be the typical "Choose first male lead, beat the Big Bad, and live happily ever after". I assumed it was gonna be a rushed ending, but I was dead wrong, and wow, did I love the ending. Big plot points are revealed, but there's still so much more to come. I'm Team Riley, and my heartstrings are just pulled in all directions about what happened in this book and what's gonna happen in the next one. Trying really hard not to put spoilers in my review, haha. Super glad and relieved this isn't the end of the Talon saga. I would have given it 4 stars due to YA cheesiness, but dang this plot is good.

This book focused more on Garret, which automatically made it more enjoyable for me than the last one (which featured Riley more prominently). Though, I still wasn't a huge fan of the backstory because I always just want to get back to the present. In this installment, our MCs start to unravel the mysteries surrounding Talon and St. George and find out what the organizations' agendas truly are. I love Garret and Ember together, and we get less of that in this book (since Garret left at the end of the previous book), but Kagawa kept the connection between them strong, even when they were apart. A new character is introduced (Jade), who brings a new dimension to the story and helps us learn even more about the dragons. This installment has plenty of action and sleuthing and the ending is... I'm just glad I could jump straight into book four or I might have had a breakdown! I think I'd rate this one at 4.5 stars

OMG! I am reeling... NOOOOOO! This is a not-to-be-missed installment in the Talon saga! SOLDIER by Julie Kagawa is the third installment in the author's wholly fabulous Talon series. This urban fantasy series revolves around TALON, an organization populated by dragons with the stated objective to rule the world and the ability to disguise themselves as humans; and the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon-slayer warriors sworn to eradicate the dragons. The two entities have been at war with each other for centuries. When a young red female dragon and a battle-hardened slayer befriend each other, both organizations have been set reeling. First of all, this is absolutely a series you must read in order. Please do not try to jump in without reading the previous books as you will not enjoy the series as it should be enjoyed. Each book has built upon the previous book. The first book, TALON, introduced the primary characters and setup the storyline. TALON gave us an up-close-and-personal look into Ember Hill aka Firebrand, a young red female dragon. Ember and her twin, Dante Hill, have had a falling out and lost contact with each other as the story has progressed. ROGUE filled in more information and concentrated more on Riley aka Cobalt, a rogue dragon. In the same way, SOLDIER focused on Garret aka the perfect soldier. This series features a love triangle with Riley and Garret vying for Ember's affection. Her dragon has a split personality. Her dragon-side craves Riley and her human-side yearns for Garret. You should know that I'm biased. I'm firmly Team Garret -he's such a sweetheart- and this book reinforced my feelings even more after Riley went all possessive caveman on Ember herein - but, truly, I'd like to see them all get a happy-ever-after. Garret was at his best in this installment. He declared his love. He was there when Ember and the team needed him but didn't force himself on them. He stayed strong under pressure. He gave his all in supporting Ember and the team, not holding anything back. But... he's human and not a dragon. We'll have to see what Julie does. I listened to the audio as I have with the prior books. There are four narrators for SOLDER. They all did a superb job, though I have to say that the narrator who voiced Riley grated on me more often than not. However, in all fairness, it could have been because Riley over-dramatically played at caveman for much of this book. He did not take well to Garret's re-appearance. His extreme jealousy did not become him nor further his cause. So I will cut that narrator a bit of slack. I would note that Riley's voice did not irk me in the previous books. Rest assured, that my issue with the voicing of that one character did not take away from my enjoyment of the whole listening experience. The multiple narrators mesh seamlessly and it is easy to always discern which character is speaking. I cannot imagine doing anything other than listening to this series as the audios have been done so well. This amazing series will keep you perched on the edge of your seat. It's action-packed, suspenseful, danger-filled, humorous, heartbreaking, but also sweet. Much is revealed in this installment. Those following the series should absolutely not miss it. Be forewarned that the ending of SOLDIER is hardcore earth-shattering brutal. ! I have to believe that Julie will pull a miracle out her hat as the trios' story just can't end that way. Highly Recommended Audio!!!
