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.Only her blood can save him from disaster.

The Going Down in Flames series is best enjoyed in order.

I'm being a rebel and reading this series out of order. I wouldn't recommend this but I like the fact I know who's important and who to snub. Bridges Burned is the second book in the Going down in flames series and I liked it more than the first one. Bryn's future as part of the dragon community is ...more

Don’t just fight the system…burn it.

Well, how not to love that attitude.... that also was what made me interested in the book.

Bridges Burned is the story of Bryn. Even though the fantasy genre is not my typical read I wanted to get a feel of the book. Af ...more

SOOOO much better than the first!!!! really glad with how much better the story got!!! ...more

By Karla January 13, 2015

An amazing read.

I didn't read the first book but it didn't really matter I could pick up the book straight away and follow it (i could gather what happened in book 1 by past references made in the book) Didn't put it was down till I was finished.

My view of the characters would be somewhat different ...more

**You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs:** 

Bridges Burned is the second book in the young adult paranormal series, Going Down in Flames. This book dives right in after the events of the first book, so if you haven't read the first book in a while, you may be lost ...more

By Lenore May 30, 2019

4.5 stars -- Starts up RIGHT where book 1 ended. Feels a bit more like one long narrative that's broken into pieces than what I'm used to from series books...not that that's a bad thing, but it means the endings of the books are kind of abrupt and don't conclu ...more

By Caro April 07, 2016

There isn't even a breather between books one and two. Seriously, Bryn leaves the Sinclair estate at the end of Going Down in Flames, and we start Bridges Burned right there in the car again. Thus, no easing into the story, but the incients get right on worse. And since this had way more very low ai ...more

By Maghon January 19, 2015

I freaking love this series!! I loved the dragons and the world that's been created. I even love the bad parts about how these dragons are still living like it's the freaking Stone Age with their culture, regardless of how out of date things are. And we jump right back in, but let me warn you. This ...more

By Lynsey February 16, 2015

This is an excellent second installment! I believe some people had a few issues with the first book being slightly formulaic, but this one really stepped up in terms of characters, plot development, and even romance - although perhaps not with the person you're expecting! Yes, unfortunately if you f ...more

By Maddi April 19, 2015

I think loved this book even more then the first.
With so many things happening that I didn't expect or really just didn't think would actually happen, i just couldn't put it down until I finished it in the early hours of the morning.
Amazing! so excited for book three! ...more

Okay, I need the 3rd book. I feel like these books are like Stockholm syndrome, I didn't like the fist one that much but needed to read the second. The second is way better except one effin character whom I hate so much (view spoiler)
I'm kinda hoping Bryn ends up with Jaxon. That would be in ...more

By Jeremy August 26, 2019

I didn't like this book as well as the first book, but I believe that was because this one seemed to stop in the middle of the story. I am still loving the story though and have bought all 5 books in the series, so I can keep reading. They are not the most in depth stories, but they are just light a ...more

By Anna 'Bookbuyer' February 05, 2018

This was an improvement on the last book. Bryn was still whiny but less so.

I was really sad that her parents died and before she even got to see them again! D:

I am very curious what this mysterious appreance of other crossbreeds is about. O.o

I was sad that Rhianna was injured but happy that she and ...more

At A Glance

Still a great story, but it had no ending.

The Good

I love this series. I am all about dragonshifters, and this is one of my fav dragon series out there. This book is heavy on the romantic drama, but we get some action and mystery too. I was ...more

By Rafael January 02, 2017

Esse livro me parece ter uma abordagem diferente ao "você é a única(o)" personagem, diferente dos outros que eu já tenha lido esse não passa tão forte que a personagem principal é o que vai salvar todos e mudar o mundo, ele da a entender que ela vai ajudar, ela tem uma visão diferente dos outros por ...more

By Ivey January 21, 2015

First of all, the cover of this book is gorgeous. I thought the cover of Going Down in Flames was amazing, but this cover is a serious eye catcher. I want to have a poster of it, honestly. To match the cover, the story inside blew me away. Bridges Burned starts off where Going Down in Flames ended. ...more

By Ana February 02, 2015

4.5 stars! This is the second book in this series and, like most second books, a lot happens to set up what’s coming next. Here, we go deeper into these characters, the mystery grows, and the danger becomes more real. Although some of the bad guys were identified at the end of the first book, we soo ...more

Rate: 3.5

The Good News:
The story was very fun. It kept me interested and I just wanted to keep reading to find out what happens next. Bryn is a stubborn, go-getter and I like that as opposed to the typical "helpless" front.

The Bad News:
Jesus. Christ. This book was so horribly written. It bugged the ...more

By Kimmie January 27, 2015

Wow simply wow. I love this book even more than the First. I still think this could make a great series of movies. I really loved the twist and turns in this book I leterly read this straight through. I picked it up yesterday and did not put it down till i finished it. Unfortunately that was at 11am ...more

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Chris Cannon has done it again. While I loved Going Down in Flames, I think I liked Burned Bridges just a little bit more. Nonstop action, heartbreak, adventure, courage, and of course dragons. What more could any urban fantasy lov ...more

By Jeraca February 07, 2015

Another great novel in this series! The only thing I'm complaining about is that I know the series isn't over, which makes me angry because I want to know how everything ends!

Bryn has gone through a lot of heartache since she found out she was a dragon. And the hits definitely keep coming in this no ...more

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

Bryn is definitely one of my favorite characters. I absolutely love how she wants to throw a fireball at the head of anyone who remotely aggravates her. I completely relate. I wasn't crazy about Zavien in the first book. I still don't like him, and I have no idea ...more

By C. Erani June 02, 2018

This one... came out of nowhere. It definitely felt like I missed something but at the same time, I was addicted to the drama. Bryn is so young so it was hard to watch her sometimes as she dealt with her problems, but I thought this was still entertaining.
