Trial By Fire (Going Down in Flames #3) by Chris Cannon (Review)

    The third installment of the Going Down in Flames series, Trail by Fire continues the tale of Bryn the teenage hybrid dragon. Faced with the oppressive culture and governing body of the dragon population, Bryn tries to blend into her new culture, without being assassinated. To aid her in that endeavor is her own personal, attractive, and magical knight. With him on her side, she will navigate the political world full of danger, murder and magic.
    Overly political, boring, slow, Trial by Fire was my least favorite novel in the series. It seems as if the strong, independent and interesting girl from the other novels seems to have killed off and replaced with a cowardly normal person. She wasn't all terrible, but she was missing that spark I had loved so much in her from before. Although highly political, there was some genuinely cute romantic scenes. Bryn and her knight were a cute couple and had some good romantic tension going on. The romance was good, but not good enough to make up for such a dull and political plot. I give Trial by Fire TWO AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!!!
