Trial By Fire (Going Down in Flames #3)
Bryn’s hopes for a peaceful new semester at school go up in smoke when someone tries to kill her—again. She’s not sure which is scarier, facing the radicals who want to sacrifice her for their cause, or her impending nightmare of a Directorate-arranged marriage to her nemesis, Jaxon.
The one bright spot in her life is Valmont, her smoking-hot knight who is assigned to watch over her twenty-four hours a day. Is what she feels for him real or just a side effect of the dragon-knight bond? At this point, stopping the impending civil war might be easier than figuring out her love life.
She may have to live in their world, but she doesn’t have to play by their rules.

Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ❣
Trial by Fire is Valmonts instalment. He is Bryn's knight and love interest. Zavien blew his chance with Bryn and Valmont was waiting in the wings to impress her. They have a special bond but something seems strange about their relationship. They are trying to work out their problems but it's hard to work out what's not right.
Meanwhile, Jaxon is standing by Rhianna after her injury even if they can no longer marry. Jaxon is jealous of everyone. He's jealous of Rhianna's new friend. He's trying to show an alpha front and stay strong with his fellow male dragons. He has a new potential marriage set up but it's not for love. Bryn and Jaxon are no longer fighting but no sparks are flying. They are hoping to find a marriage agreement that works for them both if they have to accept each other.
The dragon school is back and so are the enemies. There is a new mystery to solve and a whole new library of books. Ivy and Clint are back as trusty friends but Bryn has new living digs. Nothing is smooth sailing in Trial by Fire. Dragon affairs are complicated and not everyone is happy with how things are run. Politics, secrets and another lockdown. It's all going on.
I'm really enjoying this series and so glad I went back to read the other books. I would highly recommend reading these books in order but I'm enjoying knowing the secrets.
4.5 stars out of 5.
