Firelight by: Sophie Jordan

Publication Date: September 2010


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.

My Thoughts: Dragons or Draki....who would of thought. I honestly expected this book to be about fearies.
Jacinda is a special chick, not only is she Draki but she breathes fire. There hasn't been a fire breather in years...or actually generations.
She is suppose to mate with Cassian to create more fire breathers only her mother doesn't want that....And let's face it what mother would want her 16 year old daughter mating and having babies...My mother would have killed me.
Anyway, her mother decides to save her and move them away from the pack with her twin sister, who is not a Draki. Tamra and Jace start school for the first time.
They make friends and enemies and Jace falls in love with a Draki hunter. The very one who once saved her life....only he doesn't know who or what she is. 
Turns out that Will was once dying from cancer and his family gave him Draki blood and it cured him, only he now has it inside of him. Do you think he will hunt her? 
Will accidently see Jace manifesting after she is jumped at school. Instead of loving her less he loves her more.
Cassian catches them making out at a outdoor party and tries to kill Will. In order to save Will Jace manifests in front of all the hunters. She saved him!
But what will become of their relationship?
Will Jacinda's mom and sister be safe as well?
Question's I'm left with as the book leaves me hanging! Waiting impatiently for more!!!!!

My rating: 4 stars


  1. I have a love hate relationship with Cliffhangers. I love them because of the suspense but I hate them because I just want to know what happened.

  2. I know what you mean...Makes me crazy!!!
