Bridges Burned (Going Down in Flames #2)
Author: Chris Cannon
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: January 19, 2015
Publisher: Entangled Teen


Don't just fight the system…burn it.

Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…

But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn't a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.

Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.

“What you feel for him is a crush.” Nola said. “It will pass.”

It certainly would. Right after she cremated the son of a bitch. “Did Zavien send you?”

“No, he thinks I’m circulating.” Nola placed her hand on Bryn’s shoulder. “Zavien has gone out of his way to make sure you’re taken care of. You shouldn’t mistake his kindness for anything but friendship.”

A small growl escaped her throat. “Maybe you should ask Zavien how kind he’s been to me.”

Nola shook her head. “You’re young. He’s a flirt. I can assure you any interest perceived was your imagination. I best get back. I wouldn’t want him to know I spoke with you.”

Oh, he was going to hear about this conversation. How dare he explain away her anger as a stupid crush?

I love reading and writing snarky, kick-butt characters who take on the world and win.

My truths: You can never have too many books, shoes, or purses.

Coffee is the Elixir of Life.

There should be a National Nerf Bat Day where you are allowed to whack annoying people upside the head.
