Review: Firelight by Sophie Jordan

With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special even among the draki—the descendants of dragons who can shift between human and dragon forms. But when Jacinda’s rebelliousness leads her family to flee into the human world, she struggles to adapt, even as her draki spirit fades. The one thing that revives it is Will, whose family hunts her kind. Jacinda can’t resist getting closer to him, even though she knows she’s risking not only her life but the draki’s most closely guarded secret. –Goodreads


I was never much of a dragon lover until now, so thank you Sophie for making me a believer and lover of dragons or should I say draki. In this first draki novel you meet Jacinda a draki (dragon descendant). Her mom forces her to leave her world for the human world after an incident hoping that her draki side would die away. Instead Jacinda meets Will the only person that keeps her draki alive but also a draki hunter.

This book sucked me in from the beginning. There were a few parts that I felt dragged but it picked up again fairly quickly. In a way it reminded me of Twilight, because it had first love/crush and how the person they want to be with is not good for them. Jacinda twins sister Tamra struck a nerve with me. She act as if she is the victim and never gets her way, I cannot stand whiny people like that. Now lets get back to Will and Jacinda the real reason for the story. Their love is fresh and full of emotion. What makes their love even more sizzling hot (besides her being a fire breather, haha no pun intended) is because it’s forbidden. The hunter and its prey, what a love story! Heed my warning though, this book will definitely leaving you wanting more.
