Burning Bright (Going Down in Flames Book 5) Kindle Edition
Bryn is back for her senior year at the Institute for Excellence, also known as shape-shifting dragon school. She isn’t sure which is scarier, the life-force sucking dragons stalking campus or the fact that she’s officially betrothed to Jaxon, a guy who will never love her. Not that she could ever love him, either… That’s just ridiculous.
Senior year should be fun. Her parents are alive, she’s finally fitting in, and she’s learning how to be a Medic. But what’s with Jaxon giving her strange looks? He runs hot and cold, and he doesn’t even have the excuse of being a hybrid fire-and-ice-breathing dragon like her. One minute they’re having a great time and the next, she wants to blast a fireball at his head. The marriage contract of doom looms over them--unless this match not made in heaven kindles a flame…

When the new school year starts, Bryn can only hope that it will be better than the last. She still isn't fully back to feeling like her old self, she misses Valmort, her former Knight, and grieves the students, who lost their lives. That she has to be a, pretend, couple with Jaxon and meet with his family so often, doesn't help her feeling better. The only thing right in her life, are her parents, alive and well in the Sanctury.
But, this wouldn't be Bryn's life if there wouldn't be bad guys, threatening to take over and rule the dragon world. So, Bryn and Jaxon have to work together to safe the world - again. And as if this wasn't enough of a challenge, Bryn isn't sure anymore how she feels about Jaxon. Could they be more that friends? Or just friends, playing nice? And why is Jaxon like a ticking time bomb around her? And what about Valmont? Is she sure it's really over?
I'm not gonna reveal the ending. But, I can say, that I think it was perfect. I'm very happy with the choice Bryn made (had my hopes up for this relationship since book 1).

What a major let-down...
This feels like Chris Cannon wrote the book because she had to, not because she cared about it. It feels like she just wanted to get it done with, like she did not put any thought at all into the plot nor the development of the characters. Can I have a rewrite, please? The story had so much potential, but this really, really sucked.
Why? *** SPOILER***
First, the villain is ridiculous. I expected a major showdown, but the ending of the book before already had that and this was just an oh-we-need-to-invent-a-villain-but-who-cares type. You can tell very early on who the bad one is, and honestly, this entire sect thing feels stupid and not thought through. It does not tie up the story as a whole but is just a silly add-on that the author needed for Bryn's social life to fall into place.
Second, Jaxon??? Please! She has one pretty hairdo and he suddenly realizes he has feelings for her? Over something as superficial as this? And she is okay with it? What happened to snarky Bryn? Why is she taking all this crap the guys are giving her? Get a spine, girl!
Third, the big show-down? Are you freaking kidding me? Jaxon does his own thing and nobody cares? And then they go on a date???
My comment to the author should she ever read this: Please try again. Bryn deserves a worthier final book. You can do it, you have done it before. I can only echo what someone else wrote here: I would have prefered not have a final book at all to this one. You get one star for the rest of Bryn's snarkiness and one for some unusual things you dared.
I am very, very disappointed.
