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 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.
It sounds amazing, right? And Firelight totally delivers. I loved every moment of it. I loved that Jacinda has the ability to be strong and still vulnerable. I enjoyed that even though her mom and sister had moments where I was super annoyed with them for their behavior, in the end, I couldn't hate them. I really got annoyed with Jacinda's mom and sister, Tamra, though. Their behavior just got to me after a while. But that has to be due to Sophie Jordan's writing, she really made you identify with Jacinda and feel what she was feeling. My absolute favorite character has to be Will, though. If you've read this blog before, you know how much I love boys in books. Will just grabbed me. I really felt for him. He's like Jacinda in that he's part of something that isn't what he wants but he's just so special. Will just stole my heart. I really want him to be happy with Jacinda and I can't wait to see how Sophie pulls it off. I really enjoyed this book and loved that we could jump right into the story and build the world as we went without a ton of back story up front. This book just sucks you right in and throws you into the heart of it all. I loved this and can't wait to publish my review for it's sequel, Vanish. I'd suggest this one for readers 14 and up as there are some violent scenes and some suggestive parts.
