Jacinda is a draki, which means she is a descendant of dragons who can shift into human form. But Jacinda is a very special type of draki, she is the first fire-breather in over 400 years. But after she breaks the number one rule she must flee into the mortal world with her twin sister and mother. Jacinda is having lots of trouble fitting into high school, but one highlight is seeing Will. Even though she knows it is dangerous because if he discovered her secret he could have her killed, she can't stay away. Can Jacinda stay in the mortal world with Will or will she be forced to go back?
"Firelight" by Sophie Jordan is a story of love, danger, and the paranormal. I believe this book will appeal to readers of paranormal fiction, fantasy and teen romance. I liked this book because I liked watching Jacinda progress into the mortal world and her relationship with Will grow. The only drawback is waiting till the next book in the series comes out!
A HIDDEN TRUTH
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 of her kind, she nearly pays with her life, only to be spared by a beautiful stranger sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki--a descendant of dragons whose ability to shift into human form is her best defense.
Forced to flee into the mortal world, Jacinda struggles to adapt. The one bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irrestibly 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 a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
