Title: Firelight
Author: Sophie Jordan

Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 323

From The Back: A hidden truth. 
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.
Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.
Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide. [[from Goodreads]]

My Review: I've had this book sitting on my shelf for a while, not because I didn't want to read it but because it's one of the books I bought during a book buying splurge and I hadn't gotten around to it yet. Boy, and I GLAD I did! Holy man. I devoured this book in four hours--yea, it surprised even me--it was amazing. I mean, who doesn't love dragon people who can turn into humans? And one Draki falling in love with probably her worst enemy? COMEON, it's awesome, you know it is. Nod you're heads. Do it now. Now go buy this book if you haven't already. The MC was totally easy to relate to, even though she isn't exactly human, her emotions are written out so well that you can feel them. And the writing! Oh the writing, I love the way this was written...and the romance, oh yes there is romance! Loving the romance. This is the first book in a series.

  1. I thought reading books like this will be boring or something, but when I started reading and fall in the characters, I realized that I’m starting not just to like it but I fell in love with the book.
